Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Change of Life (Mudar de Vida) (1966) (2020) Shot in often startling black and white by Manuel Carlos De La Silva and Elso Roque, its cinematic beauty is deeply intertwined with the film's humane vision.‐ New York Times

89% Sputnik (2020) While "Sputnik" doesn't make its substantial borrowings from other sci-fi pictures entirely new, it does juice them up enough to yield a genuinely scary and satisfying experience.‐ New York Times

73% Psychomagic, a Healing Art (Psychomagie, un art pour guérir) (2019) For a lot of people, it will be difficult to accept Jodorowsky as any kind of healer.‐ New York Times

56% Waiting for the Barbarians (2020) Depp... makes a show out of pretending to be understated and seems under the impression that he's still working with Tim Burton.‐ New York Times

79% Out Stealing Horses (Ut og Stjæle Hester) (2020) An ambitious film that examines memory and consciousness through the perspective of an older man who's determined to escape from memory and to constrict his lived experience.‐ New York Times

2.5/4 77% Summerland (2020) Arterton, Mbatha-Raw, and the child actors ... bring such commitment and integrity to their characterizations that one is inclined not just to hang in there but to root for them all.‐ RogerEbert.com

67% The Cuban (2020) This genial, well-intentioned movie never quite lands a real emotional punch.‐ New York Times

75% The Hater (Hejter) (2020) Often, "The Hater" plays like something Krzysztof Kieslowski might have made had he been desperate to get work in Hollywood.‐ New York Times

100% Days of the Whale (Los días de la ballena) (2020) The cast is appealingly natural, the cinematography subtly seductive, and the Colombian pop songs on the soundtrack establish a sinuous groove.‐ New York Times

65% Fisherman's Friends (2020) Between predictable, commonplace plot turns and characterizations of music business types that are even more obnoxious than the norm, the movie's straining for effect is less than ingratiating.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2020
No Score Yet The Grand Unified Theory of Howard Bloom (2019) A moderately engaging documentary that credibly portrays Bloom's indefatigability.‐ New York Times

2.5/4 57% Guest Artist (2020) Guest Artist feels like a typical one-act, intelligent but not especially distinctive or compelling.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 81% The Painted Bird (2020) Impressive on a number of levels ... most of them technical.‐ RogerEbert.com

79% Flannery (2020) To paraphrase Alexander Pope, the proper study of O'Connor remains O'Connor's work.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet F11 and Be There (2018) Wes, when Uzzle isn't speaking of specifics, he does fall back on platitudes about the greatness of photography - but he's still very much worth knowing. And this movie is a good introduction.‐ New York Times

3/4 38% Guest of Honour (2020) The director's sturdiest creation in a while.‐ RogerEbert.com

46% Never Too Late (2020) While it's generally a pleasure to see stalwarts like Cromwell, Weaver and Jack Thompson (as one of the old gang) at work, one also wishes they had found, well, better work.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2020
100% Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo (2019) There are a lot of laughs in his Hollywood redemption story, which also reveals Trejo's hard-won gentleness.‐ New York Times

79% Greyhound (2020) "Greyhound"... feels like a movie that was conceived as an epic but could not quite muster the necessary force. As such, it's ultimately one of Hanks's most perfunctory pictures.‐ New York Times

92% The Outpost (2020) In a lesser film such family ties and resemblances could be a distraction, but in this well-crafted, fact-based tragedy of errors, they provide added value.‐ New York Times

76% Family Romance, LLC (2020) This wrinkle in modern social life is best taken in without the mitigation of overt distancing.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2020
20% Viena and the Fantomes (2016) The movie nevertheless operates on the fallacy that the mere fact of being concerned with a band suffices to generate interest.‐ New York Times

1.5/4 0% Run with the Hunted (2020) Director Swab handles this all with due dispatch and an ability that's a hair or two above what you'd call mere competence. One has to give him that. But not a whole lot more.‐ RogerEbert.com

71% The 11th Green (2020) The measured tone with which the movie presents its ostensible revelations is more than half the fun; nothing that comes up is ever played as a twist...‐ New York Times

80% All I Can Say (2020) The movie will be most profitably consumed by fans - people who believe Hoon earned the tribute. While one does not want to be cruel, one is obliged to be frank.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2020
78% The Audition (Das Vorspiel) (2020) Hoss's work is impeccable and illuminating, and the movie's foursquare, frank, brisk approach is salutary. But its final scenes lean into triteness and frustrating evasiveness...‐ New York Times

70% 7500 (2020) [An] exercise in opportunistic fear-mongering disguised as a thriller...‐ New York Times

41% Wasp Network (2019) A provocative demonstration of how strange life can get when the political and the personal intertwine like roots of a mammoth tree.‐ New York Times

2/4 38% Exit Plan (Selvmords turisten) (2020) Coster-Waldau commits to his dull character sufficiently to be, well, dull.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 82% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) A sometimes wobbly, sometimes engaging, always well-acted tale of family estrangement and reconciliation.‐ RogerEbert.com

92% The Surrogate (2020) As it stands, the whole enterprise feels like something the classic-Hollywood problem-filmmaker Stanley Kramer might have come up with, if he were a sadist.‐ New York Times

81% Hill of Freedom (Jayuui Eondeok) (2020) The ingenuity of the movie's structure is stimulating and delightful...‐ New York Times

2/4 89% You Don't Nomi (2020) A documentary that wants to appear inventive but too often comes off as affected.‐ RogerEbert.com

93% Yourself and Yours (2020) Hong's formal confidence yields a movie that's very simply constructed and utterly engrossing.‐ New York Times

100% Feral (2020) A bravura, multilayered lead performance by Annapurna Sriram anchors "Feral," an intense drama about a young homeless woman's struggles as a harsh winter begins to bear down on Brooklyn.‐ New York Times

3.5/4 97% The Deeper You Dig (2019) One of the more striking and effective horror pictures of recent years.‐ RogerEbert.com

77% Tommaso (2020) "Tommaso" [crackles] with ideas and empathy, as Ferrara's best work always does.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2020
100% Ursula von Rydingsvard: Into Her Own (2020) This documentary portrait of the formidable sculptor Ursula von Rydingsvard is, by dint of its brevity, more tantalizing than satiating. But it's still a welcome cinematic account of her work.‐ New York Times

No Score Yet Street Fighting Men (2017) It's not a dismissal of this movie to say that its narratives are familiar. That's more an indictment of the society that produces such scenarios.‐ New York Times

53% Joan of Arc (Jeanne) (2019) It's perhaps easy to apprehend Dumont's approach with a "What's this oddball up to now?" smirk. But if Dumont is joking at all, it's a form of what used to be called "kidding on the square."‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 21, 2020
25% Inheritance (2020) This movie aspires to generate the kind of rich-people-you-love-to-hate juice of cable TV series such as "Billions" and "Succession." Ultimately, "Inheritance" doesn't even get to the level of "Dynasty."‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 21, 2020
76% Military Wives (2020) The title "Military Wives" is plain to the point of blandness. This good-hearted comedy-drama, starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan, deserves a little better.‐ New York Times

3/4 87% The Trip to Greece (2020) A gift for any fan of the prior three.‐ RogerEbert.com

95% The Wolf House (La casa lobo) (2018) The film surprises, with incredible force, in every one of its 75 minutes.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted May 14, 2020
100% Graves Without a Name (2018) The depiction of human cruelty is appalling, but the way "Graves" makes the viewer feel the necessity of its filmmaker's calling is profoundly moving.‐ New York Times

2/4 92% A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2020) As cranky as much of the movie made me, Pastoll, Blaney, and especially Bolger all contrive to deliver as satisfying a climax and dénouement to this saga as one could hope for.‐ RogerEbert.com

No Score Yet Mossville: When Great Trees Fall (2020) Too much of the movie remains insufficiently filled in.‐ New York Times

65% On a Magical Night (Chambre 212) (2020) Despite the fantastic premise and the ostensibly comedic bits of business Honoré strews throughout, the movie's treatment of its themes still too often lists toward a near-ponderous solemnity.‐ New York Times

100% South Mountain (2019) Balsam is marvelous throughout, precisely measured in portraying a state often teetering on abjection.‐ New York Times
