    The virgin-whore dichotomy between the two female characters flattens the film into something much less interesting than it could have been, and the tonal discrepancies occasionally threaten to take it into experimental territory.

    Potrykus offers a variety of intriguing suggestions about the relationship between laughter and violence, performance and destruction.

    It's time to return this old painting to the attic.

    • 40 Inkoo Kang
    Its core dance styles are a wonderfully frenetic fusion of tap and hip-hop and a truly novel blend of Japanese taiko drumming and K-pop girl-group choreography. Whenever actor Derek Hough and BoA stop leaping and twirling, though, Make Your Move is an underwritten mess.

    Whatever Proxy lacks in narrative cohesion and psychological realism, it makes up for in its compelling fever-dream quality and its probing questions about the darker side of parenting.

    The exhausted mockumentary genre provides yet another reason for its demise in Authors Anonymous, a tenaciously unfunny comedy.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Inkoo Kang
    A repetitive, sluggishly paced nocturnal rumination on why we bother reuniting with old friends we purposefully left behind.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Inkoo Kang
    An unconvincing, poorly conceived hybrid of end-of-the-world thriller and relationship drama.
    • 76 Metascore

    Hittman's debut isn't just a brilliantly tactile study of the mounting sexual curiosity and frustration of 14-year-old Lila (Gina Piersanti); it's also an important landmark in the oft-ignored subgenre of realistic movies about female adolescence.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Inkoo Kang
    The careless diminishment of every other character that isn't Chávez — including wife Helen, played by an utterly wasted America Ferrera in a grape-sized role — might be worth overlooking if the film provided any insights into its subject.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Inkoo Kang
    So many phrases out of characters' mouths are as overused and flavorless as a thrice-steeped tea bag, and yet a sturdy narrative structure, increasing thematic complexity and finely detailed performances from Aidan Quinn and Taylor Schilling make writer-director Wiebke von Carolsfeld's sophomore effort an agreeably pensive experience.

    There isn't the faintest glimmer of lived experience to be found here, not the briefest flash of truth.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 40 Inkoo Kang
    [A] numbingly inert series of dirty-cop clichés that abruptly builds to an ephemerally poignant climax.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Inkoo Kang
    The social construction of illness is certainly a worthy topic, but Carter situates his characters far from any semblance of a plot and even further from his heart.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Inkoo Kang
    Although Kaveh and Raul never transcend their archetypes as heartbroken single guy and too-comfortable married man, and Hamedani and Isao aren't naturals in front of the camera, their rapport ultimately makes Junk a worthwhile lark.

    Salva manages a few inspired scenes... But the lasting image Dark House offers is of the screenwriters hurling everything they can think of at the wall.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Inkoo Kang
    In the thoughtful and touching coming-of-age tale The Cold Lands, writer-director Tom Gilroy examines self-reliance as a philosophy and way of life.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Inkoo Kang
    Never feels as triumphant or as affecting as it should, but the script boasts some amusing meanness of spirit.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Inkoo Kang
    Lovering keeps In Fear visually absorbing through unsettling close-ups and a well-paced series of scares.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Inkoo Kang
    A vital, urgent and infuriating look at the devastating failures of the juvenile court system and the insidious reach of prison privatization.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Inkoo Kang
    Director Peggy Holmes' glittery romp offers plenty of pretty spectacles, but true flights of fancy... are far too rare.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Inkoo Kang
    In adapting Dean Koontz's series, Sommers nails the hero but bungles the world-building.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Inkoo Kang
    Though it boasts great performances and urgent, intimate camera work, "Holy Ghost People" diminishes as it progresses, enervated by its prioritization of scares over cohesion and a voice-over that tells everything it should show.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Inkoo Kang
    It's so predictable in its beats and pedestrian in its execution that a viewer can slip in and out of consciousness, confident she won't miss much and will know exactly where in the story she is when she awakes.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Inkoo Kang
    The emotional moments never land.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Inkoo Kang
    The happenstance plotting and over-reliance on violence as a plot motor dissipate the film's energy by the end.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Inkoo Kang
    The Attorney is on the side of justice, but it's a ham-fisted dramatization of real-life events that mistakes anger for persuasion.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Inkoo Kang
    It's an ominous, claustrophobic, unhappily sapphic work whose thunderclap of a climax instills terror and awe of the fates' petty, whimsical cruelties.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Inkoo Kang
    Frequently affecting and mordantly funny, Somewhere Slow acquits Gilsig as a gifted actress and a producer with great taste.
