45% Girls of the Sun (Les filles du soleil) (2019) "Girls of the Sun" is a well-meaning, timid tribute that follows the usual pattern of the war correspondent subgenre, glorifying its brave subjects without taking any risks.‐

89% Loving (2016) It's a well-crafted historical drama that pays minute attention to recreating the period and the couple's personal history, with much dialogue and legal particulars based on documented fact.‐

81% Personal Shopper (2017) Whatever Stewart's shortcomings, writer/director Assayas is the guy who has to stand up and take a bow for this bomb.‐

55% Blind Detective (Man Tam) (2013) It's about as light-hearted and goofy as they come, but also disorganized, chaotic, and lacking much of the cohesive sense of style and vision that normally characterizes a To film. ‐

87% Like Father, Like Son (2014) Kore-eda's plots are simple and direct; one could almost say childlike. It's how the ending is achieved in emotional terms that matters.‐

85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) I can't even think where to start in trying to cut him some slack on "Only Lovers Left Alive," which is a priggish film full of in-group references that will provide a-ha moments for those in the know.‐

99% Le Havre (2011) I wanted to cry for joy at this funny and good-hearted film. I would normally be wary of a film that anyone describes as heart-warming but this is the real deal.‐ Chicago Sun-Times

60% Foxy Brown (1974) The film is dated, but its mixed message -- and its potential to offend virtually everyone -- still makes it a powerful discussion starter.‐ Chicago Reader
