Ha-Sodot (The Secrets) (2007)
Killing Reagan (2016)
Purple Rain (1984)
"The music is lively, loud, often powerful, sometimes raunchy, yet full of unexpected subtleties and nuances. The staging is frenetic but as perfect as the machines of the art can produce. This is first class music video."
"What keeps Confirmation watchable are vivid performances by a terrific cast. Washington - freed from the overacting mandate that seems part of the Scandal cast playbook - is subtle and moving as Hill."
Censored Voices (2015)
Ip Man 3 (2016)
"Unfortunately, the simplistic moral message of the movie and its insistence on remaining nonverbal make "Boy and the World" feel like something that would have been more tolerable as a 15-minute short than as an 80-minute feature."
The Hateful Eight (2015)
"It just doesn't work. The pacing is off, there's no tension, the connections don't stick, all that talk leads to a lot of bloody action but no payoffs since the talk meant nothing and the characters that were saying it weren't memorable."
The Big Short (2015)
"The documentary is really just an extension of the book, with clips from the movies and commentary by the directors. That's more than enough, although I would have liked a little more on Truffaut's life and career."
The Danish Girl (2015)
In the Heart of the Sea (2015)
"There's all sorts of splashing and sloshing and spearing and shouting of ultra-polite commands -- everyone, no matter how much they hate each other, unfailingly uses the honorific "Mister" -- but nothing clicks."
The Wiz Live! (2015)
"Hanks found an amiable raconteur in Solomon, now 90 but sharp and focused on the business that was his life. A collection of Solomon's confidants sing his praises and get misty about how much fun they had in the old days."
The Good Dinosaur (2015)
Victor Frankenstein (2015)
"The simplicity of its narrative and the stark beauty of its landscape make "Theeb" something close to a Mideastern Western. You'd just have to trade the dromedaries for palominos and the desert tunics for ponchos."
By The Sea (2015)
"Celebrity spouses Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt play a married couple trying to repair their broken relationship during a stay in a French seaside village in this arty but dramatically inert film."
Secret in Their Eyes (2015)
"Documentary portrait of Julius Rosenwald, the Jewish-American head of Sears, Roebuck & Co., whose philanthropy gave a boost to African-American education and culture in the first half of the 20th century."
Jafar Panahi's Taxi (2015)
"Here is an auteur able to swallow the urge to shake his fist and bellow to the heavens about the injustice of his situation. Instead, he continues to explore, with humor and humanity, the themes that have always fascinated him ..."
"It's a film that attempts the impossible: to make us understand what it's like to confront the fact that your father was responsible for the deaths of thousands upon thousands of innocent Jews during the Holocaust."
My All American (2015)
The 33 (2015)
Miss You Already (2015)
"It shows imperfect characters dealing imperfectly with situations ranging from the maritally frustrating to the existentially overwhelming. There are no heroes here, just people trying the best they can."
The Keeping Room (2015)
"Gavron is blessed with a talented cast that's fully invested in the project. Duff and Carter transform what could be cliched roles while Gleeson and Whishaw make the men more than one-dimensional villians."
Labyrinth Of Lies (2015)
The Assassin (2015)
