1.5/5 Old (2021) Cameron Meier With age comes wisdom, unless you're Old. EDIT

4/5 My Wonderful Wanda (2020) Cameron Meier Agnieszka Grochowska deserves praise for her eponymous role, but the film is chiefly an ensemble triumph. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3.75/5 Tiny Tim: King for a Day (2020) Cameron Meier Combining extraordinarily personal interviews, old clips and darkly expressive animation, [the film] is an irresistible portrait of a man we may never fully understand. EDIT

3/5 Les Nôtres (2020) Cameron Meier You might not always like where the story is going, but you will be compelled to follow. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3.5/5 Mogul Mowgli (2020) Cameron Meier Tariq's embrace of surrealism and contemplation of cultural identity - plus a wonderful supporting turn by Alyy Khan as the father - make Mogul Mowgli a festival must-see. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
2.75/5 Mandibles (2020) Cameron Meier Its playfulness and surreal humor is tough to resist. ... I suggest you try it and see for yourself what all the buzz is about. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
2/5 Lorelei (2020) Cameron Meier Produced by the team that brought us The Florida Project, Lorelei is similarly gritty and socially relevant. However, it lacks the previous film's vibrancy and originality. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2021
3.75/5 Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street (2021) Cameron Meier If Street Gang's clip of a little girl extemporaneously telling Kermit the Frog "I love you" doesn't tug on your heart strings, check those strings. You might be a puppet. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2021
2.75/5 A Rainy Day in New York (2019) Cameron Meier The infectious if clunky comedy is worth watching regardless of what you think of Allen. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2021
3.25/5 Supernova (2020) Cameron Meier Supernova has a quiet, simple beauty to it. At a lean 93 minutes, it resembles a one-act play, but it's powered by two actors with strong chemistry. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2021
3.5/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Cameron Meier It make glorious mock of everything, and want offend everyone! Expect many defamation lawsuit! Sexy time! EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
4/5 Waiting for the Barbarians (2019) Cameron Meier This film belongs consumingly to Mark Rylance, arguably the world's greatest actor of stage and screen. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2020
1.75/5 The Hunt (2020) Cameron Meier That's where the cleverness of The Hunt gets wasted: in over-the-top, brainless, cartoonishly graphic (though well executed) violence. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2020
2.25/5 Onward (2020) Cameron Meier Despite...superbly rendered (but not particularly imaginative), ultra-realistic animation, Onward is arguably the weakest Pixar release since the Cars sequels. EDIT
Posted Oct 4, 2020
1.75/5 The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019) Cameron Meier Iannucci's adaptation is a tiresome exercise in style over substance, experimental casting over narrative maturity, and farcical indulgences over genuine emotion. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2020
1.5/5 Unhinged (2020) Cameron Meier The movie mistakes inhumanity, anger and car chases (albeit good ones) for tension, and wastes most of the talents of its two leads, Russell Crowe and Caren Pistorius. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2020
.5/5 Climate of the Hunter (2019) Cameron Meier Climate resembles a community-theatre production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Or a cross between the original Dark Shadows and a Neil Breen film. EDIT
Posted Aug 18, 2020
3.75/5 Desert One (2019) Cameron Meier As usual, master documentarian Barbara Kopple is up to the task. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2020
3.25/5 John Lewis: Good Trouble (2020) Cameron Meier Porter's doc doesn't exactly redefine the genre, but it does a decent job of reintroducing us to Lewis, who, at 80 years of age and ill from pancreatic cancer, is approaching the end of a long and mighty life. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2020
3.25/5 My Darling Vivian (2020) Cameron Meier The film's honesty and integrity are palpable because the director has picked the perfect interviewees to tell this long-delayed tale. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2020
1.5/5 The Dalai Lama: Scientist (2019) Cameron Meier The movie has value for philosophers and scientists, [but it's] dry as cosmic dust. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2020
1.5/5 Greed (2019) Cameron Meier To lampoon vulgar, selfish billionaires by simply showing us 104 minutes of vulgar, selfish billionaires is unimaginative, misguided and needlessly unpleasant. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2020
3.25/5 The Invisible Man (2020) Cameron Meier [Moss] is the heart of this story, which combines ... paranoia, mental illness, female empowerment and domestic abuse into a tale that - unlike Cecilia's abusive boyfriend - never overstays its welcome. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2020
2/5 The Assistant (2019) Cameron Meier Weinstein and his ilk deserve what Roger Ailes got in Bombshell, and then some. Regrettably, you won't find that in this film [which] is emotionally muted and stretched thin. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2020
1.75/5 The Song of Names (2019) Cameron Meier Martin is passionate about finding his adopted brother, but that passion never translates to the screen, as the actors have little chemistry and the time-jumping structure robs the story of its emotional punch. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2020
2.75/5 Just Mercy (2019) Cameron Meier Just Mercy sometimes seems too pat, too familiar. Unfortunately, we've seen all this before. But that's not so much a fault of the film as a fault of the American justice system, which keeps killing mockingbirds. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
0.5/5 Like a Boss (2020) Cameron Meier Like a Boss is the worst thing to happen to the cosmetics industry since skin rashes. EDIT
Posted Jan 12, 2020
2.25/5 Little Women (2019) Cameron Meier It's a noble but misguided effort, as the muddled story never congeals. Further, thanks to the frenetic and odd juxtaposition of vignettes, we're robbed of our chance to truly understand the lives of the March sisters. EDIT
Posted Jan 9, 2020
1.5/5 Mary Queen of Scots (2018) Cameron Meier Mary, Mary, quite contrary, what does your movie show? Historical inaccuracies, an overstuffed story and a director not in the know. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
3.75/5 Peterloo (2018) Cameron Meier From the thick dialects of northern England, to the period garb, to the poverty-strewn faces of the old women barking half a dozen eggs for a "penny farthing" in the market, Peterloo weaves a rich tapestry. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
4.25/5 Hereditary (2018) Cameron Meier The film successfully invokes true terror that lingers long after the projector flickers dark. EDIT
Posted Jan 8, 2020
1/5 High Life (2018) Cameron Meier It's an interesting premise, but the structural flaws and unlikable screenplay put to waste the attractive production design. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2020
3.5/5 Pain and Glory (2019) Cameron Meier Banderas ... is consistently good at conveying vulnerability, but he takes it to another level here, delivering a performance that captures the exhaustion and frustration of a full life. EDIT
Posted Jan 7, 2020
4.25/5 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Cameron Meier Powerful entertainment on an enormous scale, it's the most emotionally resonant Star Wars movie since Return of the Jedi in 1983. EDIT
