    Loose, limber and driven by a fierce energy and staccato/pause rhythm we haven't seen previously from this filmmaker, Noah Baumbach's sublime Frances Ha is a fresh and vivacious near-reinvention of the director/writer's comedic milieu.

    Beautiful, yet dark and moving, unsparing, but told with a sympathetic eye, Ginger & Rosa is sometimes relentless in its examination of emotional pain.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    A beguiling romantic comedy with a heart, soul and pulse that will pleasure you for a full 90 minutes with hardly breaking a sweat.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Intimate, expressive, agonizing and beautifully rendered.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    It’s part raw and ugly character study, part ensemble comedy, but it’s that first element that is so striking, bold and unnerving, while the latter element is sometimes amusing, but familiar.

    While Muscle Shoals and its presentation doesn't reinvent the wheel—this is your standard talking heads documentary—the treasure trove of stills and found footage makes for a compelling and effortlessly watchable film that even the casual music fan should find themselves totally engrossed in.

    Narco Cultura is gripping, gruesome and arresting; a disquieting look a pop (sub)-culture phenomenon that is mushrooming all over the United States and Latin America.

    As an sensory experience, 'WOWS' is mostly a terrifically visceral one, a full throttle fast and furious bacchanalia of drug-fueled madness. But as a scathing indictment of American rapacity, it isn't particularly deep or resonant beyond the exterior.

    Warm, soulful, funny and quietly insightful, Boyhood shines in its engrossing, experiential understanding and it’s a special achievement that should be cherished and acknowledged.

    I Origins is a fascinating examination of belief, spirituality and otherworldliness through the skeptical lens of science, however, it's not always perfect.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Kumiko The Treasure Hunter is a striking film, a bizarre joy and a beautiful delight.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    The Babadook is a smart, respectful horror that puts character and emotional issues first, yet never at the cost of a delightful and haunting fright.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Political thriller, procedural, emotional drama and rousing cry for basic human rights and values.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Straightforwardly shot and sensitive of its subject, Art And Craft is a intriguing depiction of counterfeit impulses (both wrongly perceived and irrepressible), immense talent gone awry and what lies behind the desire to create.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Big, wonderfully oddball, sometimes confounding and beautiful, Inherent Vice supplies good dosages of stoner giggles. But its doobage is potent and reflects some heavy ideas you’ll need to unpack and meditate on for a long while.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Young Ones and its serious, bone-dry approach won’t be for everyone. The picture is languidly paced, but its ideas, moods and tones strike many thought-provoking chords.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    A darkly mysterious and extremely accomplished first feature.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Blackhat is a meticulous and exacting procedural, as obsessive with its hunt for its intangible antagonist as Mann’s compulsive desire to appreciate the flow of 1s and 0s in the virtual space. It’s chockablock with technobabble and jargon that may alienate the average viewer, but Mann’s secret weapon is his infectious fascination with the subject. The movie is like a conductive surface for his unmitigated zeal, and its potency is viral.

    Intimate, soul-baring, and winning, The End Of The Tour is a special, lovely little gem.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    As uneven as it can be at times in its last fifteen minutes, Marielle Heller has crafted a super promising debut that evokes the idea of unlocking the secret world of teenage girls and letting us live inside the special little jewel box if ever so briefly.

    The good certainly outweighs the uneven. Dope is both intelligent and crowd-pleasing.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    Baumbach’s sharp examinations of the limitations of the callow arrogance of youth and the fatuous nature of egocentricity are pointed and riotously enjoyable.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    A dark, but spirited fable about the pitilessness of the West, the meaning of home on the range and the worthwhile qualities of wicked, seemingly irredeemable men, “Slow West” is a terrific little parable, and a strong debut by John Maclean worth treasuring.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Rodrigo Perez
    A terrifically solid and sturdy effort across the board, Bluebird is the real deal and a true package of strong collaborators coalescing to make a wonderful debut film.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Rodrigo Perez
    An engaging and initially very promising drama about alcoholism, redemption and forgiveness that grows uneven and long-winded as it progresses.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 75 Rodrigo Perez
    Richard Linklater's Before Midnight isn't the most digestible picture, but its challenging, funny, painful, very present and alive depiction of relationships at 40 is so honest and real that we wouldn't have it any other way.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Rodrigo Perez
    The Spectacular Now is wise beyond its years, charismatic, measured and authentic in its depiction of the pains, confusions and insecurities of the teenage experience, and while its deliberate rhythm may prove to be a harder sell among the teen crowd, it’s a valuable and honest film that’s worth the investment.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Rodrigo Perez
    A genuinely sweet, charming and funny tale of identity lost and found.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Rodrigo Perez
    The film does possess ample charms and insights, though admittedly, they do take quite a long time to coalesce.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Rodrigo Perez
    Cold In July doesn’t always work and it takes quite a long time to get adjusted to its coiling rhythm, but it’s far better than it has any right to be and perhaps, more significantly, is unusually absorbing and memorable.
