If Smashed showed some signs of Ponsoldt’s cleverness and accuracy behind the cameras, The Spectacular Now stepped up one level, foreseeing a bright future for this young talented filmmaker. Review

Its beautiful ending, along with natural and convincing performances, helped In The Family to stand out as a humanist, realistic, and unaggressive tale about a good man that was forced to go against a family that he considered his own. Review

Its disenchantment along with tensionless resolutions proved that Neil Jordan and his vampires already had better days. Review

The performances were simply superb, leading Dequenne to win the Un Certain Regard Award for best actress at Cannes, while Lafosse showed to be a filmmaker with exceptional maturity, presenting us another extraordinary accomplishment in his career. Review

The grave silences and revelatory looks speak for themselves, and the film runs patiently towards its freeing ending. Penetrating and uncomfortable, Shell is an outstanding film that shall not be ignored. Review

In soft pale colors, and frequent close-ups, here is another perspective of Philippines’ tough reality, leaving us with the essential question posed by the nuns: why God wants us to go through all this? Review

With some drawbacks and lack of funny moments (that’s not what I would expect from this super-hero), The Wolverine provided us with decent action scenes and didn’t leave a bad impression of the most prominent X-Men's mutant hero. Review

Pretentious or not in its disjointed structure, I cannot deny that I was immerse in the story till the end, but can only recommend it for those who don’t mind to have something to decode in practically every scene. It just aims to our senses without worrying with any particular message or logic. Review

By creating a consistent and funny portrait that confronts insane ambition with cheerful modesty, Allen made of Blue Jasmine his best work since Match Point. Review

The formulaic approach and lack of energy in the scenes and characters, caused Wasteland to be even more trapped in its borrowed ideas and contrived plot. A too discouraging ride to be recommended. Review

Shun Li And The Poet is not a bad film; yet, it could have explored other ways to better denounce this sad reality, perhaps in a grittier manner rather than timid. Review

The surprising Dead Man’s Burden was able to get my attention all the time, having a valuable factor in its favor: it's very hard to guess its characters' outcome. Review

With several ups and downs along the way, Matterhorn ended up in great style due to the unexpected revelations disclosed, and by stirring some emotion. It won the audience’s heart in Moscow and Rotterdam Film Fest. Review

The Conjuring is a fantastic achievement on horror that stands closer to the disquietude of The Exorcist than to the unimpressive excesses of Evil Dead, being already a solid reference in the genre. Review

This is a macabre story filled with immoral excesses, with the exclusive goal of affecting us through pain and darkness. A dreadful and sadistic experience. Review

When the film reaches its end, all the issues concerning Veronica’s life remained out of focus, and the urban depression it tried to convey seemed vague. This major problem prevented it from succeed, regardless of any other beneficial aspects that might have been presented. Review

The hasty and abrupt editing is another factor that may not be for everyone’s taste. Even somewhat faulty in its very own poignant and gloomy way, Traffic Department uses a strong determination to make us aware of a brutal reality. Review

If you’re a fan of fierce action and exhaustive special effects, without minding if the story is fresh or appealing, then this is a film for you. Otherwise, skip it, because this is more nauseating than riding a roller coaster for ten times in a row. Review

All those scenes, so powerful and full of soul, could hit you hard, and that’s why Fruitvale Station is so valuable, absorbing, and yet revolting in its story. Review
