And Breathe Normally (2018) Hannah Brown This description may make the movie sound overly neat and formulaic, but Uggadóttir is a natural and graceful storyteller, gently and gradually painting a memorable portrait of these two women, who outwardly are so different. EDIT

The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) Hannah Brown I had read all about this and thought I knew most of it, but watching it unfold is fascinating, if a bit infuriating. EDIT

Promise at Dawn (2017) Hannah Brown This offbeat, literary biopic... is charming, funny, suspenseful and ultimately moving. EDIT
Posted Mar 7, 2019
Synonyms (Synonymes) (2019) Hannah Brown Synonyms captures the intensity of 20-somethings who long to lose themselves in strolls alongside the Seine, but instead of illuminating this identity crisis, the film falls back into clichés and dissolves into tasteful real-estate porn. EDIT

Mr. Jones (2019) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT

Posted Feb 7, 2019
The Golem (2018) Hannah Brown [I]t is filled with inventive and evocative moments, particularly those grounded in the truly scary aspects of Jewish history. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2019

Posted Dec 18, 2018

Posted Dec 2, 2018
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 15, 2018
Vision (2018) Hannah Brown It's like a great episode of Wild Japan on the National Geographic channel with almost no animals. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2018

Posted Oct 16, 2018

Posted Oct 5, 2018

Posted Sep 30, 2018
The Other Story (2018) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Sep 23, 2018
The Angel (2018) Hannah Brown All in all, [The Angel] is an entertaining look at a little-known story from recent history. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
Flawless (Haneshef) (2018) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Sep 5, 2018
Laces (2018) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2018
The Unorthodox (2018) Hannah Brown But what might have been a preachy history lesson, in Malka's assured hands, becomes a lively and suspenseful film. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2018
Juliet, Naked (2018) Hannah Brown The film is so much fun that I actually wished it were longer... EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2018
The Meg (2018) Hannah Brown The Meg, which is really pretty terrible (although occasionally - and intentionally - so bad it's funny), is for hardcore shark-movie fans only. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2018
Whitney (2018) Hannah Brown 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... EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2018
Ferrante Fever (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Aug 2, 2018
Yu wo wakasuhodo no atsui ai (2016) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2018
Driver (2017) Hannah Brown Those with patience will find that Driver is a ride worth taking. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2018
Molly's Game (2017) Hannah Brown 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... EDIT
Posted Jun 14, 2018
Disobedience (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Jun 8, 2018
Menashe (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2018
Keep the Change (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2018
The Cousin (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2018
The Invisibles (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Apr 12, 2018
7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2018
Au revoir là-haut (2017) Hannah Brown See You Up There has an energy and intelligence that will remind you why it's worthwhile to see movies on the big screen. EDIT
Posted Mar 22, 2018
Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Hannah Brown It isn't as great a movie as All the President's Men, but political junkies won't want to miss it. EDIT
Posted Feb 22, 2018
Shelter (2015) Hannah Brown These two-women movies depend on a strong cast and Shelter works because of the talent of the actresses who star in it. EDIT
Posted Jan 25, 2018
Teströl és lélekröl (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2018
The Cakemaker (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2017
The museum (2017) Hannah Brown You won't learn any statistics about the museum, but the movie illuminates the essence of this complex institution. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2017
Primaire (2016) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2017
Scaffolding (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2017
Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Oct 12, 2017
Foxtrot (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2017
Longing (2017) Hannah Brown Longing seems stranded, too slick and insubstantial to be an art house movie but too depressing and dark to be any fun. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2017
Antenna (2016) Hannah Brown [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. EDIT
Posted Sep 1, 2017
La vache (2016) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
Posted Aug 3, 2017
Double Lover (2017) Hannah Brown 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. EDIT
