9/10 No Score Yet David Cross: Oh Come On (2019) Clearly, we live in odd and slightly terrifying times, and perhaps David Cross is just odd enough to help us make sense of it all. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Barbara Rubin & the Exploding NY Underground (2019) Perhaps one day film will indeed change the world for the better, but for now, all we can do is watch and experience what's left of the experimental media of that time and wistfully remind ourselves of what we missed. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 92% Belmonte (2018) For a drama with a few humorous touches, it's a wispy story that almost isn't there. But rest assured that It will wash over you rather than deliver a gut punch, and sometimes that's just the level of emotional intensity we seek. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% Skid Row Marathon (2019) Skid Row Marathon is an uplifting experience that doesn't allow sport and competition to overshadow the stories of the runners' lives. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Nothing Really Happens (2017) Can all of this be tied together into something that makes sense? For the most part it does. Nothing Really Happens finally coheres into a story - if you stay with it. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 91% The Last Resort (2018) ...the story of two friends who set out to document a slice of history. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Hunter (2019) For the most part, Hunter hits the marks that it needs to hit, and it keeps us watching, even if it's light on delivering surprising plot twists. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Conny Plank - The Potential of Noise (2018) Perhaps the best way to understand another artist is to paint your own a portrait of him or her. Here, that seems to have worked well. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 100% A Bread Factory, Part One: For the Sake of Gold (2018) The feeling of loss is palpable and, and this wonderful film should serve as a reminder to appreciate the truly irreplaceable assets we have. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 95% Filmworker (2018) Vitali's story, wrapped in fascinating details about what it was like backstage in Kubrick productions, is a must-see for fans of the great director and anyone else enchanted with the inner workings of the film industry. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet SOMM 3 (2018) Somm 3 is an absorbing 90 minutes that will likely whet your appetite for a glass of burgundy, and if nothing else, you'll get a few tips on wines to check out. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Mail Order Monster (2018) It's a story that kids will probably enjoy a lot, and parents can watch with pleasure alongside their young ones. Not a bad way to spend a rainy afternoon. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet Glass Jaw (2018) Glass Jaw consistently spells itself out in no uncertain terms, often with dialog that's too on-the-nose to be true. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2018
5/10 No Score Yet Diamonds to Dust (2014) The acting is spotty and stiff, the production values are strictly low rent. Hailey Heisick's Jayne is passable in a role that requires little depth. Trash culture addicts may get a charge out of Diamonds to Dust. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet In Transit (2018) In Transit makes use of a minimalist setup, and it's an extremely ambitious undertaking. But what it adds up to is around 73 minutes of two people speaking to each other, with the barest possible set, and only a handful of cutaways to help illustrate... - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 80% Chasing the Blues (2018) Had it dug a bit deeper, it might have been something more than the overall pleasant entertainment vehicle that it is. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
9/10 90% Peppermint Soda (1977) This is a charming film that makes its impact not with contrived plot points designed to trigger cheap emotional responses, but with disarmingly honest portrayals... - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Dead Envy (2018) Dead Envy seldom rises above its stock story plots and underdeveloped characters. - Film Threat EDIT

2/10 No Score Yet Silencer (2018) When a movie merely tries to push the audience's emotional buttons the result is bound to be less than memorable. It's a mechanical approach to movie making. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 No Score Yet The US Generation: The 1982 Us Festival (2017) The film seems, at its heart, a promotional vehicle for a rich man rather than what it should be, a concert film that shows us more of the music and less yakking. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
7/10 No Score Yet Threesomething (2018) What starts out as a fairly average, if not kinky, romance comedy, Threesomething ups the ante with an odd and rather silly twist... - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 88% Horn From the Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story (2018) This is a must-see for music fans. Others who are too young to remember Butterfield ought to check it out, too. It's not every day you get to see a truly American phenomenon in action. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 62% Calling All Earthlings (2018) Most appealing is the film's mixture of California post-War history, cults and a tinge of science fiction - an intriguing combination of elements that make it a winner. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 87% Euthanizer (Armomurhaaja) (2018) Calling it grim would overstate the warmth and sense of optimism exuded by the individuals who reside in this corner of the world... - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
3/10 No Score Yet Heartbeats (2017) For all of its pageantry, choreographed dance numbers and splashy photography, Heartbeats has all the qualities of a lackluster after school special. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Time Simply Passes (2016) Sometimes a documentary can tell such compelling story that from the first minute you can't help but jump onboard and root for the underdog. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 No Score Yet Shooting in Vain (2018) We focus on an individual who tries mightily to adjust to others' expectations of him while staying true to himself. - Film Threat EDIT

4.9/10 No Score Yet In This Gray Place (2018) Overall, the reasoning behind the brazen holdup and the standoff that followed it has a few flaws, and the less attention drawn to the cracks in the foundation the better. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 13% The Texture of Falling (2018) The two storylines don't seem to have a lot in common or connect in any way, but that changes near the end. Meanwhile, there are a lot of short, slightly disjointed scenes and a soundtrack that would be at home in a psychological thriller or horror film. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Calico Skies (2016) The struggles, humanity and neurotic tendencies of his infectious character keep this strange tale of regret and doomed hope for salvation alive in the darkness of the desert's blazing sunlight. - Film Threat EDIT

No Score Yet The Last Horsemen of New York (2018) In all, the film delivers a convincing argument in favor of the horse-drawn carriage industry and reveals some unsettling facts. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
6.5/10 75% The Gardener (2018) Like the garden itself, the film is nice to look at, but beyond its eye-candy appeal, it's decidedly light fare. Botanists and flora enthusiasts will undoubtedly find a lot to like about The Gardener, as would anyone looking for a soothing respite. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 13% Kings (2018) For all its best efforts, Kings fails to put the 1992 Los Angeles riots into focus. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/10 No Score Yet Born Guilty (2018) Born Guilty has occasional bursts of humor that work...Unfortunately, these moments are too sparse to give the film the sparkle it needs. - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 83% Panic (2014) Panic is a good looking film, appropriately gritty and generally well acted. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/10 65% Anything (2018) In the end, the film wants to imply that the love of a supportive partner can overcome any problem, no matter how insurmountable it may seem. But that overly optimistic view is less than convincing. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
5/10 80% In the Last Days of the City (Akher ayam el madina) (2018) The film makes relatively clear the predicament that each of the main characters is in, but fails to make a compelling connection between its parts, or morph into a coherent, complete story. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
8/10 96% Particle Fever (2014) Considering the complexities of the subject matter, the film holds together surprisingly well. It's catnip for physics geeks, of course, but others with even a mild curiosity about the physical world can appreciate it. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2018
5.5/10 90% Bye Bye Germany (Es war einmal in Deutschland...) (2018) The film doesn't fully carry the weight that director/writer Sam Garbarski and co-writer Michel Bergmann seem to be aiming for. The characters appear to grapple with emotional issues, but the film doesn't delve very deeply into them. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2018
6/10 No Score Yet Use Your Delusion (2017) You've got to hand it to this crew, they hang in there and play their hearts out, even if it's to an audience of 15 or so in a Bakersfield brewery. That's rock 'n' roll. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
6.5/10 No Score Yet Bus Party to Hell (2018) Fans of campy horror flicks who have an ironic appreciation for low-budget B-movies may find this one right up their alley. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
8.5/10 87% A Suitable Girl (2017) The film gives what seems like an honest look at a world that might be quite foreign to many of us, and it's a fascinating slice of life to observe. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
5.5/10 No Score Yet Blood and Glory (Modder en Bloed) (2016) All of the pieces are in place as the film fades to black, but our journey along the way is a little too mechanical to be a genuine crowd pleaser. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 71% Snapshots (2018) Performances all around are strong, with Piper Laurie's Rose taking the lead and directing us through the story's narrative. We are invited to soak in the retro atmosphere as the story unfolds at a leisurely pace. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 86% A Bluebird in My Heart (2018) As the film morphs from a character study into crime film, the action grows more taut, as it ought to. - Film Threat EDIT

2/10 No Score Yet Hired to Kill (1990) The movie's biggest laughs come from parts that were probably not intended to be comic. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
7/10 72% Point and Shoot (2014) Despite the film's tendency to shy away from deeper questions of motivation, Curry's storytelling is well-structured and strangely compelling. I found myself rooting for Vandyke - and thanking my lucky stars that I was not in his place. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 75% Chasing Great (2018) In all, Chasing Great remains engrossing throughout, offering a close-up look at a very rough and tumble sport. Watching the film, it's hard not to get swept up into the spirit of the fans and the players. - Film Threat EDIT
