    Gomes contemplates the many human dimensions wavering under the surface of this town, whether it’s the mythologies crowding a town’s gossip session or the tall tales flooding rants at a local bar. This is a collective voice of character rather than a dry document of reality.

    Amy Seimetz's intoxicating slice of genre revisionism earns its "neo" prefix, envisioning a brightly sinister world where desperation is the new normal.

    Ruben Fleischer's film is a perfect example of Hollywood hypocrisy, something to be ignored diligently.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 25 Glenn Heath Jr.
    The film grows increasingly tiresome the more it flirts with melodrama, unraveling themes of jealousy, regret, and ambition in broad strokes.

    The endless scenes of burning buildings and macho posturing merely provide an action-driven context for the filmmakers to deal with more personal topics like loneliness and resiliency.

    Do we really need another cautionary tale about an ambitious drug dealer dramatically falling from grace?

    Despite being a nasty and skillful action film, The Day goes off the rails in the final stretch.
    • 69 Metascore

    The film ultimately fails to treat history as anything but a string of melodramatic reference points for moody characters haplessly trying to find love.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Glenn Heath Jr.
    The seamless juxtaposition of faith and pain, innocence and guilt, allows the film to transcend Spike Lee's occasional bombastic moments and become a strong examination of internal suffering.

    Isaac Florentine's film is maligned with gaping plot holes, terrible expository dialogue, and obvious moments of foreshadowing.

    Nina Rosenblum's love letter never attains that essence of ambiguity that makes the best nonfiction films live on after the credits fade.

    For a film that often veers into potentially absurd territory, You Hurt My Feelings shows a great deal of sensitivity toward its sad-sack characters.

    A strange and intoxicating indie constructed as a series of vignettes that capture two children grappling with the overlap of trauma and nostalgia.

    It'd be unwise to dismiss Safe House as merely a clone of Tony Scott's manically inclined vision.
