T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 53% Waiting for the Barbarians (2019) Guerra has tweaked the novel's Beckettian coda, and the film's final shot provides a full stop that is, in 2019, appropriately apocalyptic. The barbarians are us, and the wait is over. - Guardian EDIT

100% Hearts and Bones (2019) The untangling of each man's past lets the film explore ideas about trust and blinkered assumptions, and Lawrence proves himself a very able director of actors. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

100% Iron Fists and Kung Fu Kicks (2019) Before the fadeout it serves as an illuminating, passionately argued tribute to the beauty of martial-arts cinema and its continuing evolution. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

No Score Yet Queer Japan (2019) An engagingly colorful panorama. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

No Score Yet Sequin in a Blue Room (2019) Sequin in a Blue Room feels very much of the moment, but it's upholstered by an impressive command of good old-fashioned craft. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

65% Danger Close (2019) Orchestrated on an impressive scale, the movie nonetheless feels both familiar and diffuse, with thinly sketched variations on a bronzed theme rather than characters... - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

100% Mystify: Michael Hutchence (2019) It should prove essential viewing for the subject's fans: a tender portrait of the man's highs and lows that sheds new light on the broken years that directly preceded his suicide at 37. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

22% Playmobil: The Movie (2019) It's safe to say that anyone who has already reached double digits will find little to enjoy in this generic and lifeless promotional tool... - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2019
No Score Yet The Final Quarter (2019) The filmmaker's sympathies are not in doubt, though his decision to avoid talking heads - relying instead on contemporaneous television coverage - makes his case stronger by giving all the fulminators enough rope to hang themselves. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

50% Palm Beach (2019) What makes the whole thing work is Ward's facility with performers, and the wrinkles that are threaded into plot points we've seen a million times before. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

89% Lucky Grandma (2019) A crowd-pleaser with a slyly magnetic lead performance. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2019
66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) It largely succeeds, buoyed by Black's typical exuberance, Blanchett's typical slyness and a richly evocative rendering of a Rockwellian suburb sprinkled with goofer dust. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2018
25% The Nun (2018) It's good clean fun nevertheless, and the set pieces expertly supply the tension-and-release satisfactions of the genre - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
80% Cuernavaca (2017) A melancholy look at a boy adrift. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2018
81% Jirga (2019) The filmmaking could most charitably be described as artless, with a medley of shaky thousand-pixel close-ups providing a sense of detail that doesn't quite extend to the script. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
No Score Yet Eurotrump (2017) The rise of populism in the United States shadows everything, and EuroTrump makes the case that the story of the global far-right's current moment begins in the Netherlands. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

80% Unsane (2018) The world of psychiatry is only a pretext for a Hitchcockian potboiler that plays with the audience's sense of the protagonist's identity and sanity. - The Neighbourhood Paper (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
No Score Yet Into the Okavango (2018) Transporting. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2018
100% Making the Grade (2017) A gently amusing mosaic. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2018
91% Ghostbox Cowboy (2018) If this all sounds a bit depressing, it is. But it's certainly never boring, and Maringouin makes the madness feel queasily real. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
68% Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2019) The many vivid sequences on the waves are enough to justify the pic's presence on the big screen. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
No Score Yet Man Made (2018) A sensitive snapshot of four lives in transition. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2018
81% The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) Buoyed by a reliably appealing star turn from James, this handsome tearjerker mostly sidesteps the tweeness of its title to become, somehow, both an old-fashioned romance and a detective story trumpeting gender equality. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
92% Brothers' Nest (2018) This is a comedy that's blacker than pitch, and tethered enough to unexaggerated human behavior that it can really commit to the consequences of its characters' colossal stupidity. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
68% Finding Your Feet (2018) Precision-tooled for the Tuesday afternoon crowd it may be, but Finding Your Feet nevertheless does what it says on the tin, and does it expertly. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
63% The Gateway (2018) An intriguing concept, flatly executed. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2018
77% Swinging Safari (2019) Elliott whizzes from montage to sight gag to flashbacks and flash-forwards, skittering sideways for frequent discursions about the family pets, or a disastrous incident with a beach umbrella. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
No Score Yet The Space Between (2016) This rather earnest, Rilke-quoting drama boasts lovely locations but is unhurried to a fault, capturing the lead character's ennui a little too punctiliously. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
50% Conor McGregor: Notorious (2017) Fans will find this outing a bit old-hat, and newbies will probably be wondering what the fuss is all about. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
85% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) The director's 100th feature, Blade of the Immortal shows Miike to have lost none of the madcap energy and wit that characterize his best work. And while this is not that, it's still got more style to burn than almost any recent Hollywood actioner. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

85% West of Sunshine (2017) [A] handsomely lensed slice of life ... - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2017
50% The Butterfly Tree (2017) This rather underpowered tale of sexual awakening and grief proceeds at a leisurely pace before a couple of late scenes that strive to outdo each other for sheer melodramatic overreach. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
60% Jungle (2017) This is a survival thriller without much in the way of you-know-what, and seems destined to land in the Amazonian bog into which films that satisfy neither grindhouse nor art house are sucked. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
86% Rabbit (2017) Showcases strong work from its two promising leads and striking location photography, but doesn't finally make a lick of sense. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
No Score Yet OtherLife (2017) Knotty sci-fi. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
87% Mountain (2018) One of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

92% Ali's Wedding (2017) Walker's debut mines rapid-fire laughs and bountiful heart from a story of romantic misadventure set in train by a young man desperate to live up to his father's expectations. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
86% Ellipsis (2017) Wenham ... demonstrates a deft hand here, keeping the wispiest of narratives afloat with a low-key portrait of budding romance that's awake to the excitement of first encounters. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2017
18% Assassin's Creed (2016) Assassin's Creed reps Fassbender's first film as a producer, though it's hard to see what excited him about it, given that he's got nothing to play. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
81% Girl Asleep (2016) Girl Asleep might be about an awakening, but it's not a sexual awakening, and this is one teen comedy in which, at long last, the geek doesn't get the girl. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2016
36% Honeyglue (2016) Worthy but more than a little sanctimonious. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted May 31, 2016
85% River (2016) Sutherland is superbly frayed, seeming to get appreciably thinner and more shell-like every minute. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2016
15% The 5th Wave (2016) Another week, another plucky teenage girl with the fate of the world on her shoulders, buffeted by smoldering glances from two strong, yet sensitive, young men. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2016
81% Holding The Man (2015) An affecting and unexpectedly funny tale of two lovers who had the misfortune to come of age during the burgeoning HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980's. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
88% The Lobster (2016) Lanthimos has a gift for making imagined social conventions plausible and even logical, and in doing so he exposes -- in often brutal, mordantly funny fashion -- the arbitrariness of our own. - Junkee EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
40% Love (2015) [Love] feels sincere if only because it's so unflattering. - Junkee EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
87% Heaven Knows What (2015) Heaven Knows What is a stringently unromantic portrait of fringe dwelling and love, but its authentically monotone picture of street life also makes it kind of deadening. - Junkee EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
77% The Daughter (2017) The performances are uniformly affecting, particularly by Ewen Leslie as Oliver, whose decency makes the pain he endures all the more wrenching. Or it would, if you believed any of it. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2015
98% Sherpa (2015) Rarely are documentaries as powerfully polemic and jaw-gapingly spectacular as Sherpa. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2015
44% One & Two (2015) Disparate influences percolate but never quite cohere in Andrew Droz Palermo's first narrative feature One & Two, which while atmospheric and beautifully lensed ends up being a touch too elliptical for its own good. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
