Les Salopes, or the Naturally Wanton Pleasure of Skin


The complexities do not always succeed, but, as a character study, the film poses some interesting points of view...

Poster for Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians


This somewhat cheesy crowd-pleaser offers a great deal of neurotic gossip addressed with annoying pomposity and superfluous multi-cultural fashion.

Poster for Heaven Without People

Heaven Without People


Can a brilliant ending save a film? Sure, but I strongly feel this one could have given much more if handled with a little more subtlety.

Poster for Night Comes On

Night Comes On


There is nothing new or striking here, but rather emphatically emotional, in a film about decisions that never quite convinces in terms of a hypothetical revenge.

Poster for Adrift



The film shapes into an exhausting melodrama instead of the harrowing, devastating adventure that everybody was expecting.

Who We Are Now


There is nothing fanciful or odd in Newton’s story.

Poster for Tully



Feels more contrived than astute, having the skilled group of actors working hard to avoid further damage.

Poster for Upgrade



The well-told Upgrade maintains the dystopian vibrancy until the end, compensating the less vivid moments with a subtle dark humor that fits hand in glove.

Poster for Hostiles



Protracted, deficiently paced, and lugubrious, Hostiles eludes the viewer with limited action and redundant scenes...

Poster for Sollers Point

Sollers Point


The decreased intensity and long-suffering nature of the film are not obstructive since Keith’s frustration feels authentic and the backdrop/atmosphere painfully realistic.

The Rider


This powerful, quiet, and confessed drama with shades of Western will give you much more than what you are expecting.

The Escape


A fair drama that could have been better.

Poster for In Syria

In Syria


In the throes of this harrowing, devastating scenario, the slightest good-natured and funny circumstance, even very limited in number, is felt as an urgent gratification.

Poster for The 12th Man

The 12th Man


Although competent in terms of storytelling, the most impressive aspect of the film was its visual impact, with some severe scenes causing discomfort.

Poster for Let the Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In


Denis’ most diaphanous work to date is a subtle, powerful, and intelligent look at human relationships and society.

Poster for The Lightest Darkness

The Lightest Darkness


Lacking a proper climax and shattered by plot holes, the film takes us to narrow train hallways and inconsequent therapy sessions, both of which are far from being exciting.

Poster for The Insult

The Insult


While the direction was unexceptional, the credible performances elevated a film trying to justify the acts of its characters through a chain of emotional states...

Poster for Unsane



The whole idea, as an experiment, is interesting, but the film lacks in credibility what it gains in boldness.

Poster for Gemini



Reveals a blatant tackiness in the way the scenes are mounted and delivers extremely poor dialogues.

Poster for Doubtful



Elya missed the opportunity to do something bolder with a recurrent topic, treading the same paths that many other films did successfully.

Poster for Thoroughbreds



Intersecting the friction of a taut thriller and the biting wit of a dark comedy, Cory Finley proves he has the eye and the talent.

The Bookshop


It was the courage of the good characters that made me enjoy this flawed drama film.

Poster for The Valley

The Valley


The dramatic tones feel shallow and uninspired, bringing the type of sentimentality that is more adverse than expedient.

Poster for Middleground



Although well acted, mindful, and visually arresting, the film doesn’t go beyond its hypothetical circumstances.
