Rating Title/Year Author
Song Wo Shang Qing Yun (2019) Daniel Eagan Yao Chen is splendid, thoroughly embracing her difficult, at times off-putting character. EDIT

The Load (2018) Daniel Eagan What distinguishes the film are the steps its characters take to save their dignity. EDIT

Shi tu xing zhe 2: die ying xing dong (2019) Daniel Eagan Action fans may feel like they're back in Hong Kong heaven. EDIT

The Iron Orchard (2018) Daniel Eagan Thin but likable account of an oil wildcatter's rise and fall. Strong production values help offset cast and script issues. EDIT

Ghost Light (2018) Daniel Eagan Ghost Light suffers from an underdeveloped script and obviously small budget. What makes it worthwhile is its insight into characters, who against the odds build up real sympathy. EDIT

Daughter of the Wolf (2019) Daniel Eagan Carano's a solid performer with real screen presence, but jobs like this don't help her career. EDIT
Posted Jun 13, 2019
The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil (2019) Daniel Eagan Don Lee almost singlehandedly lifts this fun if derivative genre piece out of the ordinary. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2019
Rocketman (2019) Daniel Eagan One side of the Sir Elton John story: clichéd, weirdly canted, still largely enjoyable. EDIT
Posted May 30, 2019
Bull (2019) Daniel Eagan [Director] Silverstein makes a strong case that these people have something worthwhile to say to viewers. There is a grace and tenderness to the movie that are hard to resist. EDIT

Master Z: Ip Man Legacy (2018) Daniel Eagan While it may not be especially original, Master Z delivers everything martial-arts fans want. The action is as satisfying as dance routines, especially with performers as physically skilled as these. EDIT

For Now (2017) Daniel Eagan Kane Senes and Hannah Barlow work hard to lift For Now above expectations. Their story is engaging, and their filmmaking style interesting. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2019
The Things We've Seen (2017) Daniel Eagan Clammy and claustrophobic, The Things We've Seen can build an effective mood as its characters struggle with problems. Even with a small budget, determined filmmakers can accomplish something worthwhile. EDIT

The Aftermath (2019) Daniel Eagan The Aftermath feels uninspired, inert, irrelevant. Destroying Hamburg seems like a high price to pay so a housewife can put her dead boy behind her, indulge her sexual fantasies, and reconcile with a newly sensitized husband. EDIT

Da xiang xi di er zuo (2018) Daniel Eagan This is a once-in-a-generation film, an epic of defiance against a ruthless society. Honest, sympathetic, incisive, it will stand as a masterpiece of its time. EDIT

Hummus! The Movie (2015) Daniel Eagan Told with humor and compassion, but a bit too niche to win widespread appeal. What the documentary does very well is spotlight deserving, hard-working chefs who don't ordinarily get much attention. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
A Boy Called Sailboat (2018) Daniel Eagan Modest fairy tale set in the New Mexico desert is simultaneously affecting and disappointing, with superior work from its very young cast. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2019
The Mule (2018) Daniel Eagan Understated account of an elderly drug runner for the Mexican cartels. Director and star Clint Eastwood remains one of America's most talented, and subversive, filmmakers. EDIT
