    The film has an atmosphere of endless experimentation, which compliments the constant revision the subjects apply to their lives in the wake of their economic insecurity.

    The film isn't so much about "the end of cinema" as it is about the people who abuse the medium and their subjects for their own political agenda.

    • 75 Wes Greene
    Like their earlier Trouble the Water, Carl Deal and Tia Lessin portray men and women yearning for a simple place in society as they become casualties to the self-involvement of larger forces.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Wes Greene
    In its visionary dream and flashback sequences, the film becomes a comment on the rapidly diminished state of traditional animation.

    Perhaps Sanjay Rawal's most fascinating excursion into agriculture's dark side is the vineyards of Napa Valley, where the practically Eden-like scenery masks a dreary labor model.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    Daniel Patrick Carbone's pensive style, so dotted with ethnographic detail, is interested in revealing a world in flux, but his fixation on death is so incessant that it situates the film as a morose fetish object.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    The material and resources are certainly substantial, but the filmmakers clumsily weave separate stories together without detailing anything beyond a tangential relation.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    The unbalanced appraisal of Vidal's life and work in Nicholas Wrathall's documentary diminishes the effect of the writer's engaging dissension of American political policy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    It offers a realistic portrayal of Momo's emotional state, but this comes at the expense of a deeper exploration into both the story's lush supernatural landscape and its inhabitants.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    Pegi Vail beautifully edited film somehow addresses a lot, but ultimately says nothing at all.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    A rigidly predetermined film that runs on the fumes of hackneyed plot points, squandering at nearly every turn a humanistic study of a family's struggle to maintain a tenable bond with one another.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    The sobering quality that informs both the documentary's aesthetic and content largely suppresses any spontaneity or much-needed moments of levity.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    Its fixation on life's quotidian aspects gives way to a less imaginative focus on an inevitable and overly familiar romance.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    It may channel the loose, adrenaline-fueled lives of pilots, but the film's inconsistent, often impassive study of this intriguing real-life adventure feels half-told.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    The doc is too enamored with Cenk Uygur and his convictions that it hews more closely to being a conventional and one-sided biographical portrait.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 63 Wes Greene
    It appears afraid of alienating viewers by overloading on scientific jargon, and in the process becomes too attracted to ultimately superfluous anecdotes from her subjects.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    Even though the subtext about the past and modernity constantly being at odds throughout the setting's changing times is intriguing, the director presents this in a clunky, almost didactic fashion.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    A well-intentioned story of an impoverished father searching for his missing child is muddled by an ambitious sociological agenda in Richie Mehta's film.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    Its offbeat aesthetic largely flaunts for appeal, suffocating character and thematic ambition underneath its flashiness.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    As the psychology of the characters hardly connects with their distinctive milieu, the film merely suggests a conventional family drama littered with empty pot-shots at governmental authority.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    In the end, Adam Green reminds us that he's all to eager to go for the easy thrill.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    Sophie Hyde barely elaborates on the toll James's transition takes on him and only superficially as it affects Billie's psyche.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Wes Greene
    Like the characters, the film's exterior flash can't conceal a glaring emptiness.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Wes Greene
    It borders on parody as it tries to portray its hero as martyrdom-bound genius, which makes the film feel as if it was made by Franco's vain, art-fetishizing character from "This Is the End."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Wes Greene
    As the film is focused solely through the lens of the titular characters' cameras, this limits the exploration of the story's worldview outside of Hank and Asha's perspective.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Wes Greene
    The story allows for Ryan Phillippe to indulge in a self-deprecating brand of satire, but he can't work up enough courage to ever make his character--and, by extension, himself--the brunt of any of the film's barbs.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 38 Wes Greene
    It passive-aggressively seems to suggest that anyone who isn't exactly interested in monogamy may be some kind of selfish, intolerable sociopath.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Wes Greene
    The affectionate humanism that typically laces Simon Pegg's postmodern self-awareness is missing from Kriv Stenders's film.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Wes Greene
    Red is the kind of lazily written, thankless curmudgeon role that uses the trials of advanced age for cheap laughs rather than harnessing a veteran actor's talent to engage our empathy.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Wes Greene
    It purports to be an incisive character study dramatized through outré "dream logic," but Sharon Greytak's ineptitude at this very Lynchian aesthetic sucks all nuance and spirit out of the film.
