    An adamantly linear, myth-busting stride through a prodigiously talented life.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A kooky, affectionate tribute that’s happily superficial.
    • 56 Metascore

    Mr. Wood has created a poignant portrait of an artist unable to escape the stamp of her class or the burdens of aging.

    Filmed in high-definition black and white, Ms. Menkes's often exquisite compositions - a single, attenuated shot of the aftermath of a car crash is a miracle of choreography - drive a narrative mired in poverty and spiritual desperation.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A seductively fluid and tactile drama from the writer and director Karin Albou, explores love and identity through the prism of the female body and the rights of its owner.

    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Raising significant questions about the psychological effects of poverty on young children, this unsettlingly direct stab at atonement feels genuine.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A weird, wordy but oddly compelling thriller.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    This ghastly scenario of poor preying on poor is, like the film's gray-green palette, profoundly depressing and entirely pitiless.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    An unusually restrained and genuinely eerie little movie perched at the intersection of faith, folklore and female puberty.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Mr. Clark finds unexpected heart amid cliché and frigidity.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Pitting good against evil with striking intelligence and a near-operatic commitment to extreme suffering, Ms. Gebbe neither mocks nor celebrates Tore’s love for his God. Neither does she give any hint that it’s reciprocated.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Smart, wordy and sweetly sympathetic to lives lived online, Sidewalls coasts on Martín and Mariana's twin voice-overs, alternate musings on themselves and their city.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    At times the groan and scream of collapsing metal sounds so authentic you might mistake Jackson’s heavy breathing for your own.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Offering few solutions beyond a single fair-trade fashion company, The True Cost — whose serene interludes compete with sickening recordings of Black Friday shopping riots and so-called clothing haul videos — stirs and saddens. Not least because it’s unlikely to reach the young consumers most in need of its revelations.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Generating suspense without blowing the special-effects budget, Mr. Sanchez paints an intimate portrait of a tormented personality. Though horrors are eventually unveiled, the film is more chilling in its slower, quieter moments.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Swiveling from past to present and back again, the writer and director, Lee Su-jin, drops ominous clues — a bruised boy; a mysterious infection — that only slowly coalesce into a larger tragedy.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Defiantly amateurish yet never less than engaging, “Sweaty Betty” is a true oddity.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A tantalizing glimpse of a determinedly outsider talent.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A mournful Midwestern ballad devoid of grace notes.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Swift and amusingly brainless, Hatchet II more than delivers on splatter expectations.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    This emphatic and empathetic documentary (directed by Sanjay Rawal and narrated by Forest Whitaker) presents the plight of our farm laborers as modern-day slavery.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The mantle of social relevance can be a heavy one, but Trust, a smooth drama about a girl's seduction and rape by a middle-aged Internet predator, is neither preachy nor hysterically overreaching.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The filmmakers stage an amazing race that almost absolves an overstuffed plot and an over-reliance on coincidence.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The movie is most effective in its early scenes of prickly menace, and while the Dolphin is no Overlook (the haunted hotel in "The Shining"), its old-world creepiness is exactly right.

    Filled with clear, bright images and moments of skewed genius, this delicate debut effortlessly evokes those languid summer doldrums, when even a rotting girlfriend is better than no girlfriend at all.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A fascinating glimpse of a dreamer and a music culture that has always depended on dreams.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Coming out has rarely looked so pretty.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The film produces moments that catch in the throat.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Jeannette Catsoulis
    If the film’s spare re-enactments are a little awkward, they also smartly repurpose Dahmer’s studied reserve into a meditation on perversion as hypnotic as it is repulsive.
