Film Review: Dear Dictator
'Mean Girls' gets a Marxist twist in this slim satire, as a high-school outcast shelters a Third-World dictator.
Film Review: Josie
Silly, melodramatic stuff is this Southern-set “thriller,” which refuses to realize its campy potential and instead, regrettably, plays it straight.
Film Review: Keep the Change
Surprisingly sweet rom-com featuring two people with autism benefits from affecting performances by leads Samantha Elisofon and Brandon Polansky.
Film Review: Eight Hours Don’t Make a Day
Often funny, always acutely observed, Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s sprawling 'Eight Hours Don’t Make a Day' explores the often tendentious intersection of the personal and the political in the lives of an extended working-class German family.
Film Review: Thoroughbreds
Girls go bad in this intelligent black comedy.
Film Review: Claire's Camera
Kim Minhee again proves herself one of today’s most easily likeable actresses in Hong Sangsoo’s waver-thin divertissement set at the Cannes Film Festival (although you never see the event itself).
Film Review: Itzhak
Highly intelligent and warm portrait of the most haimische virtuoso who ever lived.
Film Review: The Princess and the Matchmaker
Opulent but chaotic Korean historical epic with way too much going on, keeping you at arm’s length from becoming truly engaged.
Film Review: The Leisure Seeker
A somewhat generic but mostly agreeable road-trip movie about a long-married couple (Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren) on their final vacation.
Film Review: Hannah
Andrea Pallaoro’s second feature is a formally rigorous, minimalistic character study of a woman who’s slowly excommunicated from society.
