Miles Ahead

Review by Angelica Jade Bastien

There is a quiet brilliance to the film that left me electrified, inspired, challenged like all great films should. It doesn't wholly work, but when it does it sings.

Everybody Wants Some!!

Review by Sheila O'Malley

When Richard Linklater's style works (and it works in Everybody Wants Some!!), there is nobody quite like him.

God's Not Dead 2

Review by Sheila O'Malley

There are serious movies about the Christian faith, the persecution of the faithful, and the intolerance that goes both ways. God's Not Dead 2 is not one of them.

Kill Your Friends Poster

Kill Your Friends

Review by Christy Lemire

It's amusingly slick and mean for a while, but ultimately the film's one-note nihilism grows numbing, and its stylish visuals and well-chosen soundtrack can only do so much to keep it lively.

Afternoon

Review by Tina Hassannia

Like other Tsai films, Afternoon establishes its own slow representation of time and the way human interactions and performances play out.

Francofonia

Review by Alissa Wilkinson

Alexander Sokurov's Francofonia serves as both a historical document and a commentary on the importance of the preservation of art.

The Dark Horse Poster

The Dark Horse

Review by Sheila O'Malley

The Dark Horse dials down the sentimentality, and works purely on the strength of real-life events.

H. Poster

H.

Review by Monica Castillo

It is an enigmatic film, full of story and conflict, yet spacious enough for our thoughts to fill the unclaimed space.

Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures Poster

Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures

Review by Justine Elias

He's holding a skull topped cane and staring, with those eerie pale eyes, right at the camera, right at the viewer, or right beyond you, as though he sees something that you don't, won't, can't see. That's Mapplethorpe.

Standing Tall Poster

Standing Tall

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Emmanuelle Bercot's film is propelled more by procedural moments than the actual act of experience life itself.

Hello, My Name Is Doris Poster

Hello, My Name Is Doris

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Hello, My Name is Doris has a welcome rawness that partly derives from making do with fewer resources.
