3.5/4 Mr. Jones (2019) Cate Marquis An often low-key but powerful portrait of courage, a moving, worthy drama that both revives the memory of nearly forgotten independent journalist Gareth Jones, and a timely reminder of the importance of truth-telling in these fraught and difficult times. EDIT

1.5/4 The Jesus Rolls (2019) Cate Marquis The major appeal of the original was in the pairing of Depardieu and Dewaere, who were comedy magic. Turturro and Cannavale have some good comic moments but, unsurprisingly, they don't recapture the same magic. EDIT

Robert the Bruce (2019) Cate Marquis [It] all seems to promise far more than this modest drama delivers. EDIT

3/4 The Other Lamb (2019) Cate Marquis Unsettling to watch, and while it does not explore in depth the topics it raises, its haunting meditation on them and its haunting visuals are enough to keep it in your mind long after the film ends. EDIT

Posted Dec 13, 2019
4/4 Waves (2019) Cate Marquis Although a tragedy is the center of the plot, WAVES is a film about hope, feelings, human connections, and life being lived, even in the wake of the unthinkable. EDIT

2/4 The Warrior Queen of Jhansi (2019) Jim Batts ...this retelling feels like a better than average offering on a basic cable TV educational channel offering, only worth watching for the dazzling heroics of Ms. Bhise in the title role. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2019
4/4 The Report (2019) Cate Marquis The Report delivers an edge-of-your-seat political thriller that will grab you even if you think you know the story, as well as an inspiring portrait of a heroic man determined to do the right thing against all odds. EDIT

4/4 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Cate Marquis While the race to beat Ferrari drives the plot, there is a moving human story at the center, one of personal struggle, of friendship and family. There are moments of transcendence and the poignancy, particularly at the film's haunting end. EDIT

Posted Oct 4, 2019
3/4 Judy (2019) Cate Marquis Although Zellweger has little actual resemblance to Garland, she is transformed by excellent make up and her stunning performance, creating so convincing an impersonation that one feels like you are watching Judy Garland herself. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2019
3.5/4 Downton Abbey (2019) Cate Marquis Fans of the highly-praised British historical TV series will welcome the return of Downton Abbey but this return to the lavish, high-fashion 1920s...delivers delights for those who are not familiar with the popular show as well. EDIT

Posted Aug 23, 2019
3.5/4 After the Wedding (2019) Cate Marquis It is a family drama but one filled with complicated people and difficult choices, where there are no good guys or bad guys, just flawed people striving to make the best of the circumstances. It is a refreshing approach. EDIT

4/4 David Crosby: Remember My Name (2019) Cate Marquis No matter what you think of David Crosby personally, this musical journey is a long strange trip well worth taking. EDIT
Posted Aug 16, 2019

Posted Aug 16, 2019
1/4 The Kitchen (2019) Cate Marquis It is a shame to waste this wonderful cast on this mess of a movie. If only the filmmakers had decided to add a real script, they might have had something, instead of wasting the audience's time and money. EDIT

Posted Aug 5, 2019
4/4 La chute de l'empire Américain (2018) Cate Marquis ...a thoughtful, good-hearted film full of unexpected turns, that has something in particular to say and it says it in a gentler, subtler way than most social satires might. EDIT
Posted Aug 5, 2019
2/4 Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019) Cate Marquis There is often a shallow, tabloid feel to this biographical film. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
4/4 The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Cate Marquis For those with patience and open to this film's lyricism and sweetly sad dreamy metaphor, The Last Black Man in San Francisco has many rewards. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
4/4 Sword of Trust (2019) Cate Marquis Director Shelton does a masterful job. She draws us in with the humor then throws us off balance, upending assumptions and turning things around every time we get too comfortable. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2019
1/5 Cold Blood (2019) Cate Marquis Reno does his best with this sorry material, and he manages to milk a few good moments; overall the cast is good but there is only so much they and Reno can do with this sloppily cobbled together story. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
4/5 Late Night (2019) Cate Marquis Kaling and Thompson are good in their scenes together, although their characters are often on dual tracks. The more affecting scenes are between Thompson and Lithgow... EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
4.5/5 Double Lives (2018) Cate Marquis For those who like French sex comedy and books, Olivier's clever sly comedy Non-Fiction is a treat not to miss. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019

Posted Jul 29, 2019
2.5/5 The Tomorrow Man (2019) Cate Marquis Despite the two excellent leads, this disappointing film has little charm or sense. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
4.5/5 The White Crow (2018) Cate Marquis ...a taut dramatic thriller that is as much about overcoming adversity and the drive of an artist to be free, as it is about Nureyev, the Cold War or ballet. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
3/5 John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Cate Marquis It is a lot of plot, complicated connections and underworld characters to carry, which tends weigh down the whole film after awhile. The whole cast is great, but it is a bit like too much of a rich, delicious dessert all at once. EDIT
Posted Jul 29, 2019
3.5/5 Photograph (2019) Cate Marquis Batra uses the very human story of two people to comment on the human condition and society itself, no small feat. EDIT

Posted Jul 29, 2019

Posted Jul 29, 2019
3.5/5 Red Joan (2018) Cate Marquis Perhaps Nunn tried to do a bit too much with this film, layering this woman's secret past with themes of feminist and anti-war sentiment. When the film focuses on the characters in the past, it builds a driving thriller tension... EDIT
