A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night Poster

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Some of the images sit there unmoving for too long, but that very same stasis also helps create and enforce the underlying tension, the tormented space between people even when they are standing very close together. The film feels extremely…

Happy Valley Poster

Happy Valley

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Director Amir Bar-Lev doesn't push the irony. He doesn't push anything, really. He just recounts the whole sordid story of the Penn State football scandal again, then draws, or tries to draw, some lessons from it.

Bad Hair Poster

Bad Hair

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Mariana Rondón's Bad Hair is a stark and often brutal look at one boy's pre-sexual awakening of identity and how that impacts his life. What is it like to know who you are before you understand what that will mean?

The King and the Mockingbird Poster

The King and the Mockingbird

Review by Christy Lemire

What a tortured path The King and the Mockingbird has taken to reach theaters in the United States, and what a treat it is for us to be able to experience it now.

Extraterrestrial Poster

Extraterrestrial

Review by Simon Abrams

It's frustrating to watch a horror movie as promising as Extraterrestrial, a new slasher film about alien abduction, fail to hit its marks.

V/H/S: Viral Poster

V/H/S: Viral

Review by Brian Tallerico

V/H/S: Viral, the third film after Sundance hits V/H/S and V/H/S/2, better represent the bottom of the barrel for this franchise because I don't think I can take much more.

Reach Me Poster

Reach Me

Review by Glenn Kenny

Once you've sunk into the entirely warped groove of Reach Me you're almost eager to experience the next offense against aesthetics and/or common sense it is poised to commit. And make no mistake: this is a movie that keeps on…

The Circle Poster

The Circle

Review by Glenn Kenny

Haupt's film moves along agreeably enough for a while, and the intercutting between the film's real-life subjects, now at an advanced age, and their dramatized adventures almost 60 years ago, convincingly creates a rooting interest.

Late Phases Poster

Late Phases

Review by Brian Tallerico

Bogliano can't quite manage the tones of the film, resulting in a frustrating piece of work overall, but Damici gives his memorable protagonist enough life to hold it together more often that it would have otherwise. He's great here. The…

Monk With a Camera Poster

Monk With a Camera

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

While the film doesn't delve into the doctrines of Tibetan Buddhism, it does provide a sense of its outward life in the images of the people and rituals of the monastery to which Nicky Vreeland has devoted so much love…

Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets Poster

Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets

Review by Simon Abrams

Habicht's film never goes beyond idol worship since his film only succeeds at reproducing Cocker's myopic vision of his band.
