Mr. Jones (2019)
Coming at a time when debates over so-called fake news are dominating the headlines, this complex story about an inconvenient and horrific truth that no one wanted to hear could not be more timely or more welcome.
Posted Feb 11, 2019
This sensitively made film takes on an important topic - sexual abuse of children in Lyon by Catholic clergy - and makes a gripping and thought-provoking movie out of it.

A Star Is Born (2018)
It may be a little less powerful if you know where the story is heading, but it's undeniably a triumph for Cooper.
Posted Feb 7, 2019
The Golem (2019)
[I]t is filled with inventive and evocative moments, particularly those grounded in the truly scary aspects of Jewish history.
Posted Jan 30, 2019
Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018)
Cold War is meticulously directed, each black-and-white shot composed like a great photograph.
Posted Jan 24, 2019
Yes. It's a remarkable film, both intimate and epic, that is moving and often surprising.

Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018)
Shoplifters is well worth seeing for its twist-filled story and phenomenal acting.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)
All six of the stories in the film are riveting and although they knew the film was destined to be seen mainly on the small screen, the Coens are at the top of their visual game.

It's like a great episode of Wild Japan on the National Geographic channel with almost no animals.

Hidden Face (2018)
The movie is well structured and the cinematography is particularly good and tells the story with little need for exposition.
Posted Oct 16, 2018
Holy Air (2017)
Holy Air is an engaging and charming comedy with dramatic overtones and it isn't quite like anything you've seen before.

Operation Finale (2018)
This fact-based story is a carefully executed retelling of the Israeli operation to catch Eichmann in Buenos Aires and bring him to Israel to stand trial for his part in the Holocaust.
Posted Sep 30, 2018
The Other Story (2018)
A gripping, touching and unpredictable story about a troubled father-daughter relationship that weaves in the conflicts between secular and ultra-Orthodox Israelis, a struggle that is so central to Israeli life but rarely the focus of fiction.
Posted Sep 23, 2018
The Angel (2018)
All in all, [The Angel] is an entertaining look at a little-known story from recent history.
Posted Sep 17, 2018
Flawless (Haneshef) (2018)
Flawless... tries to combine two hot-button issues - female insecurity and the struggles of a transgender teen to fit in - and ends up with an unconvincing, superficial look at both these subjects.
Posted Sep 5, 2018
Laces is a new and welcome instance of a character who would once have been in the shadows taking center space on the big screen.
Posted Aug 30, 2018
The Unorthodox (2018)
But what might have been a preachy history lesson, in Malka's assured hands, becomes a lively and suspenseful film.
Posted Aug 22, 2018
Juliet, Naked (2018)
The film is so much fun that I actually wished it were longer...
Posted Aug 21, 2018
The Meg (2018)
The Meg, which is really pretty terrible (although occasionally - and intentionally - so bad it's funny), is for hardcore shark-movie fans only.
Posted Aug 21, 2018
Macdonald puts her story in the context of what was going on culturally and politically at the time, and avoids most biopic clichés to turn Whitney into a sad and riveting fable of a princess...
Posted Aug 2, 2018
Ferrante Fever (2019)
Like a good book club session, Ferrante Fever is fun because it's nice to be in the company of people who are as crazy about these novels as you are.
Posted Aug 2, 2018
Those who aren't put off by the inherent sadness in the concept will find this film compelling in its depiction of how this heroine chooses to choreograph her own exit, and although you may cry, you won't leave the theater depressed.
Posted Jul 12, 2018
Driver (Before Memory) (2017)
Those with patience will find that Driver is a ride worth taking.
Posted Jun 28, 2018
Molly's Game (2018)
It's entertaining enough and may play better on the small screen than at the movies, but in spite of its cleverness, it is never truly compelling...
Posted Jun 14, 2018
In Disobedience, everyone speaks softly, almost in a whisper, as if they were praying... That's the director's choice, but it doesn't make for riveting viewing.
Posted Jun 8, 2018
It's a touching and nuanced film, and so skillfully made that you quickly get over the novelty of the fact that its characters are speaking Yiddish and get right into the story.
Posted May 24, 2018
Keep the Change (2018)
Keep the Change is brilliantly written, acted and directed, a triumph in so many ways. It is so suspenseful and entertaining that I sincerely believe I would have loved it even if I had no personal connection to autism.
Posted May 10, 2018
The Cousin (Ha'ben dod) (2017)
Tzahi Grad's film The Cousin is an odd and interesting look at the disconnect between what many Israelis believe and how they actually live.
Posted May 8, 2018
The Invisibles (2019)
It's a testament to Rafle's skill as a director that even though we [...] know that the characters survived, The Invisibles keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Posted Apr 12, 2018
7 Days in Entebbe (2018)
Director Jose Padilha seems to be conflicted about the story he is trying to tell. He must know that people who point guns at children's heads, no matter how noble their long-term goals may be, are inherently unsympathetic.
Posted Mar 29, 2018
See You Up There has an energy and intelligence that will remind you why it's worthwhile to see movies on the big screen.
Posted Mar 22, 2018
It isn't as great a movie as All the President's Men, but political junkies won't want to miss it.
Posted Feb 22, 2018
These two-women movies depend on a strong cast and Shelter works because of the talent of the actresses who star in it.
Posted Jan 25, 2018
It weaves a spell that will entrance you while you are watching it, although afterwards, in the cold light of the lobby, certain plot turns may strike you as so absurd that you may not understand why or how you enjoyed it as much as you did.
Posted Jan 4, 2018
The Cakemaker (2018)
It tells a twist-filled story about love and loss that will resonate with audiences because of its carefully observed characters and sense of place.
Posted Dec 28, 2017
The Museum (2017)
You won't learn any statistics about the museum, but the movie illuminates the essence of this complex institution.
Posted Dec 8, 2017
Elementary is a very honest and engrossing story that will bring you back to your school days, and its insights will give you great respect for anyone tough and brave enough to choose teaching as a profession.
Posted Nov 16, 2017
There is a feeling of authenticity about the film: Yair knows these kids and teachers, and he never sacrifices the story to make a point.
Posted Nov 2, 2017
This delightful and entertaining documentary looks at the life and career of a musical star you thought you knew. It portrays a complex, unique and very talented man who courted controversy his whole life.
Posted Oct 12, 2017
A brilliant movie, one that is so rich thematically, visually, musically and emotionally, that one viewing is not enough to begin to absorb all it has to offer.
Posted Sep 28, 2017
Longing seems stranded, too slick and insubstantial to be an art house movie but too depressing and dark to be any fun.
Posted Sep 14, 2017
[Antenna] skillfully blends comedy and drama as the various characters try to live their lives in the increasingly long shadow of their father's obsession, which will strike some as magnificent and others as misguided.
Posted Sep 1, 2017
La Vache is beautifully photographed, and both its Algerian and French locations look so lovely that it would be a shame to see the film anywhere other than in a theater.
Posted Aug 3, 2017
It's a combination of Rosemary's Baby, every evil-twin movie you've ever seen, and a chic high-end perfume ad, with an emphasis on the ad.
Posted Jul 27, 2017
It's rare that a movie that is concerned with issues currently in the headlines is more than that, but Aki Kaurismaki's touching and funny The Other Side of Hope, which focuses on the migrant crisis in Europe, pulls it off.
Posted Jul 14, 2017
The Carer (2015)
Those who love Shakespeare and great British acting should not pass up The Carer.
Posted Jul 14, 2017
Saving Neta (2016)
Some will find the film too episodic and slow, but those who give it a chance will find it touching and rewarding.
Posted Jul 13, 2017
When you see something this real, it is extremely compelling, and you root for these doctors as they work against often impossible odds, and savor their small triumphs.
Posted Jun 8, 2017
Wonder Woman (2017)
Wonder Woman ends with a sequel on the horizon, that will certainly get made if the movie inspires little girls to ditch their Disney Princess regalia and learn to scare off creeps with the raise of an eyebrow, the Gal Gadot way.
Posted May 29, 2017
Indoors (Hadrei habait) (2016)
Green's humane storytelling overcomes his preachier impulses.
