Expertly written and stringently executed, the film flows effortlessly within a well-mounted narrative structure; things only tremble in the very last chapter. Review

Inundated with affection, Nomadland goes into uncharted territories, and if there’s aridness in the landscape, then barely none of it inhabits the heart of these compassionate travelers. Review

Chaganty does well here in regard to tone and intensity, and some afflictive scenes can nearly take our breath away. Review

If you go for the romance, prepare yourself to be engulfed by a socio-political context that turns out as poignant and merciless as the love story itself. Review

The film, which took Patterson one whole year to edit, may feel like an exercise in mood but provides a great deal of entertainment in addition to technical competence. Review

All things considered, this is all about feelings, and both Dafoe and Ferrara denote enough inspiration to prevent this idiosyncratic statement to sink into oblivion. Review

This slogging post-apocalyptic fiction composed of space inanity and uninspired snow routes crawls right toward disappointment, lacking smart moves and shaping up as a collage of other already existing ideas. A monumental let down. Review

Saint Maude is a visceral piece of cinema that can be considered too radical by the easily scared, but, on the other hand, brings competence and freshness to the saturated horror genre. It’s an all-front winner that captivates our attention through arresting imagery, psychological distress and demented moods. Review

The Way Back brings nothing new and its authors seem satisfied with the overdramatic artifice set to obstruct imagination. Review

Although the languid pace won’t serve every viewer’s motivation, Ahn manages to give the story a nice simple touch and warm coloration. Review

The lack of integrity and the disrespect shown by these spenders are outraging, and Finley was able to convey that aspect with lucidity and competence. Review

The film is a composite of classic startles and creepy scenes drawn from the horror mechanics compendium. Although ingeniously crafted, the somewhat tacky ending didn’t work for me. Having said that, Mrs. James is a gifted young filmmaker to keep an eye on in the future. Review

The story oozes emotional poignancy, but loses force as it moves forward, partially thwarted by a predictable finale. Nevertheless, Marder grabs us, not so much with the vociferous metal music or any type of artistic pose, but rather with an effective sound design and narrative quality. Review

With all the schmaltzy deceptions arriving by the end, Sylvie’s Love may still find its place in the hearts of those looking for undemanding romantic dramas. Review

Clever observations and funny lines deliciously intertwine in a eye-grabbing work of art that is both spiritually rich and terrestrially encouraging. Review

Gorgeously shot, with a dazzling camera work and a tone that ranges from disconcerting to subversive, the film is still very much recommended, even when, in its final third, subtle oscillations in intensity and flow are detected. Review

The characters reveal to be meaningful as they express ingrained thoughts and narrate disturbing stories, both personal and unconfirmed. Almost in counterpoint, the film swings unabashedly at the sound of jazz while capturing the atmosphere of that specific time. Review

Perhaps too easygoing, the film never quite transcends the sum of its parts. There are a number of awkward moments that feel way off the mark, but the wry humor and the groovy flow of things make it a watchable experience.The well-orchestrated jazzy score by Jay McCarroll contributes heavily to the private eye spirit.

Evoking the old Western style, this is subtle, intimate cinema devised with pinpoint accuracy, disarming minimalism and arthouse proneness. Review

Informative but feeling somewhat ‘naked’ in its step-by-step narrative, the film has its most interesting moments when the personalities of the members are explored through a recaptured past immersed in controversy and attitude. Review

Whistlers, playing a more crowd-pleasing and less ambitious formula, never reaches the mordacity and intelligence of 12:08 East of Bucharest, Police Adjective and The Treasure. I was unimpressed except for the whistling language itself. Review

Avoiding to cut through superficial surfaces of distress, Mrs. Murphy builds a tale of implacable clarity. Babyteeth isn’t perfect, but it feels real, even in moments of chaos. Review

Like Tesla, perhaps Almereyda wanted to look ahead. Yet, this loosely adapted biopic never goes in the right direction with its unstylish retro-modern hybridity. Review
