Ha-Sodot (The Secrets) (2007)
The Sunshine Makers (2017)
Strike a Pose (2017)
Panique (Panic) (1947)
"Duvivier's film kicks off in a realist register, then gradually transforms into a noirish romance of deception until finally settling into a tragic allegory of wartime collaborationism and the cruel madness of rumor, fear and and spite."
Saving Banksy (2017)
They Call Us Monsters (2017)
"Lear doesn't make the boys saints - there are interviews with their victims - but he does paint a complex portrait of underserved children seemingly destined to end up in prison for life for no better reason than that they had no support."
The Founder (2017)
"The Founder slowly reveals itself as a don't-let-the-devil-into-your-house parable, one that uses all the techniques of inspirational moviemaking to disguise that devil's intentions, even from the devil himself."
The Bye Bye Man (2017)
"It may be that I'm assessing on a curve because it's January. But if you miss the slasher icons of old and have little patience for the reboot attempts they get periodically, it's nice to see at least a worthy attempt to add to that pantheon."
The Crash (Jekyll Island) (2017)
Alone in Berlin (2017)
"While Alone in Berlin may at times come off as too understated (Otto and Anna are rather opaque characters), it makes for a fairly engaging exploration of how one lives day to day in the face of historical horror."
Go North (2017)
One Piece Film: Gold (2017)
"The picture is boisterous and shouty and frequently grotesque, and it features a preponderance of scantily clad, large-breasted women, including Straw Hat pirate Nami, whose barely-there bikini top helpfully has the word "sexy" printed on it."
"This is Allied propaganda, of course, but these attacks, which might seem blunt or ineffective to us today, cannot dilute the visceral impact of the footage, such as the montage overviews of camp living conditions and gas chamber protocol."
"The glimpses we get of these friendly encounters are mostly unilluminating beyond their novelty, underscoring the truth that some of these guys are more isolated, fearful, and clueless than truly gripped by hate."
Between Us (2017)
The Ardennes (D'Ardennen) (2017)
Railroad Tigers (2017)
"With heart, humor and some breathtaking special effects, Ding Sheng's Railroad Tigers charms and thrills, pitting a merry band of Robin Hood-style peasants led by Jackie Chan in rural China against the Japanese military."
"Cameraperson draws our attention not just to what we're seeing, but to how we're seeing it. It encourages us to wonder how a camera operator negotiates personal space in tense, intimate, emotionally fraught situations."
