Sing Street Poster

Sing Street

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Sing Street never condescends to the yearnings, pain, and hopes of its main character, teenage boy Conor, and, even better, believes in the dreams of every character in the film, even minor ones.

Mr. Right Poster

Mr. Right

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

The 103rd best movie of 1994, or: another film that wants to be "Pulp Fiction."

Criminal Poster

Criminal

Review by Peter Sobczynski

A dunderheaded enterprise that can't even be salvaged by an unusually strong cast.

The Jungle Book

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

In every way, this quietly majestic film should be considered a triumph.

Barbershop: The Next Cut Poster

Barbershop: The Next Cut

Review by Odie Henderson

"Barbershop: The Next Cut" dispenses its message with enough humor and wisdom to inspire and linger after it's done.

Green Room Poster

Green Room

Review by Simon Abrams

Green Room is an overly fussy thriller where dialogue is so direct, and shots are arranged in such a mannered way that you can't help but be distracted by their precision.

Rio, I Love You Poster

Rio, I Love You

Review by Christy Lemire

It's all extremely romantic...and shallow, and actually a little dull.

The Measure of a Man Poster

The Measure of a Man

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The Measure of a Man may be a hard film to watch at times, but with Lindon's great performance at its center, it is one from which you cannot look away.

Colonia Poster

Colonia

Review by Glenn Kenny

Watson and Bruhl give it their best, and Nyqvist makes a powerful villain, but Colonia winds up being a movie that wants to get its way on too many levels, and winds up not satisfying on most of them.

Sky Poster

Sky

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Are the French especially prone to this kind of unintended silliness? Sky almost seems determined to prove they are.

The Adderall Diaries Poster

The Adderall Diaries

Review by Nick Allen

The type of writer's drama in which a tortured artist presents a manuscript at the end with the film's title on it.

The First Monday in May Poster

The First Monday in May

Review by Mark Dujsik

Rossi returns to the dispute in a bit more detail (mostly by juxtaposing interviews with fashion designers who are of opposing opinions on the subject), but by that point, it doesn't matter.

My Big Night Poster

My Big Night

Review by Simon Abrams

The premise of My Big Night is fine, but the film's execution is what really sells it.

Wedding Doll Poster

Wedding Doll

Review by Glenn Kenny

While the movie's disinclination to give Hagit any kind of break, fairy-tale or otherwise, speaks well of its commitment to a kind of realism, the depiction of provincial bigotry against differently-abled folk is, while likely accurate, also just plain depressing.
