Daughters of the Dust Poster

Daughters of the Dust

Review by Roger Ebert

Julie Dash's Daughters of the Dust is a tone poem of old memories, a family album in which all of the pictures are taken on the same day.

Shut In Poster

Shut In

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The kind of lazy genre hackwork that will inspire more yawns than screams—at least until the final reels, when the sounds of incredulous laughter will no doubt take over.

Nocturnal Animals Poster

Nocturnal Animals

Review by Glenn Kenny

So vehement is writer/director Tom Ford in articulating his vision at times that you think he'd be disappointed by a viewer that wasn't at least a little bit angry with him over the movie.

Blood on the Mountain Poster

Blood on the Mountain

A project that many history documentaries should aspire to, Blood on the Mountain has much to think about, learn from and never forget.

Raising Bertie Poster

Raising Bertie

Review by Brian Tallerico

It is a case study, a film driven by the people it captures, and it fits the Kartemquin model of filmmaking well in that they clearly believe by getting to know others we also get to know ourselves.

This is one of those based on true events movies that give you the distinct feeling that the true events deserved better.

Ali & Nino Poster

Ali & Nino

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Obviously a different movie than would have been the case had it been made by filmmakers, writers and actors from the cultures it depicts, especially Azerbaijan but also Georgia (the former Soviet republic), Armenia and Iran.

I Am Not Madame Bovary Poster

I Am Not Madame Bovary

I Am Madame Bovary plays out as a comedy, a lampoon of the incompetence and laziness of government officials.

Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing Poster

Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing

Review by Nick Allen

Though a warming tribute to strength, this comprehensive documentary's approach can feel too tidy.

Notes on Blindness Poster

Notes on Blindness

Review by Odie Henderson

Quite often, the filmmakers go for blurry scenery, surreal events and odd camera shots that feel more like gimmicks than an accurate representation of its subject's affliction.

True Memoirs of an International Assassin Poster

True Memoirs of an International Assassin

Review by Brian Tallerico

It isn't funny or entertaining enough to recommend, but it's certainly not the torturous experience of recent James vehicles like Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 or Pixels, and parts of it actually work.
