Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Angelfish (2019) Lee's film plays it disappointingly safe, never deviating from romantic comedy conventions; there are no real surprises that you can't already see coming.‐ Hollywood Reporter

53% Charlie's Angels (2019) Banks brings Charlie's Angels into the modern age with flair, all while unapologetically raising a feminist flag, championing female friendships and subtly making a point about the urgency of the ongoing climate crisis.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Liberty: Mother of Exiles (2019) What Liberty: Mother of Exiles makes clear is that even if you think you know the whole story, there's a lot more to it than Emma Lazarus' famous poem.‐ Hollywood Reporter

68% Sister Aimee (2019) Buck and Schlingmann have ideas, but they just don't add up to something impactful here.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Comets (2019) As the movie doesn't cohere at the end, you're left feeling cheated by the fact that it has required so much patience up until then.‐ Hollywood Reporter

94% Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator (2019) Orner succeeds at evoking a deep sense of empathy for the survivors of Choudhury's abuse, and although that's not the same thing as justice, perhaps it's a place to start.‐ Hollywood Reporter

83% The Obituary of Tunde Johnson (2019) An agonizing tale about the weight society hoists upon too many black gay men's weary shoulders, it's the kind of film that lingers in your mind days after you've seen it, as much due to the relevant subject matter as to Tunde's penetrating gaze.‐ Hollywood Reporter

88% Hustlers (2019) Scafaria validates her heroines from the start by focusing on them as women whose internal struggles and friendships with each other are far more interesting than their obvious physical allure.‐ Hollywood Reporter

88% Tammy's Always Dying (2019) The main reason the film is worth a watch is the strong performances of its two leads.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet The Devil Has a Name (2019) Olmos balances a grim tale of corporate exploitation, environmental degradation and the plight of the American farmer with delightful buddy-comedy pairings.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Sell By (2019) At its core, this is a film about emotional intimacy: the mundane, ecstatic and difficult parts of loving someone over the long-term.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2019
100% Queering The Script (2019) The film makes a convincing case for why it is powerful when underrepresented audiences see fictional characters that both entertain and inspire.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2019
No Score Yet Holy Trinity (2019) It celebrates living a sex- and kink-positive life and explores how an affirmative spirituality fits into that.‐ Hollywood Reporter

90% Always Be My Maybe (2019) Although the script is uneven, there is hardly a moment where we don't believe in these two.‐ Hollywood Reporter

34% Poms (2019) It lands as voyeuristic condescension and flattens the presumably full lives of women elders into hollow inspiration fodder.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted May 9, 2019
96% Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (2019) Though clearly made for a wide audience, Greenfield-Sanders doesn't back away from Morrison's candid critiques of racism and misogyny.‐ Out Magazine

82% Someone Great (2019) It's very funny and offers up plenty of heartwarming fodder for the sentimental among us.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet Why Can't I Be Me? Around You (2019) Though the film can feel like a ball bouncing in too many directions to keep track of, that's also precisely what's interesting about it: It feels like a direct entrance into Blank's brain...‐ Hollywood Reporter

75% Olympic Dreams (2020) A raw depiction of emotional intimacy between two people who are both slightly neurotic in different ways, but nevertheless want big things out of life.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2019
No Score Yet Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story (2019) The film is enormously funny (like her or not, anyone who says Griffin isn't talented is just disingenuous at this point), and the Los Angeles audience in front of whom she taped it eats every bit up.‐ Hollywood Reporter

67% Adopt a Highway (2019) In an ensemble cast of small roles where his character is the only one with a film-length arc, Hawke's performance quite literally carries the movie.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2019
No Score Yet Bellingcat - Truth in a Post-Truth World (2018) A refreshing portrait of citizen journalism in the digital age.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2019
70% Darlin' (2019) A film that ultimately feels static and unresolved.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2019
100% Vision Portraits (2019) If only for the in-depth discussions of the creative process, the film is worth a watch.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Yes God Yes (2019) Nevertheless the film is a fun and entertaining ride that unfolds at just the right speed.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2019
100% Romantic Comedy (2019) The film expertly chips away at the dismissal of rom-coms as frivolous guilty pleasures for a mostly female audience.‐ Hollywood Reporter

80% Juanita (2019) If the main takeaway from Juanita is that it exposes us to a variety of characters we're not used to seeing interact with each other in places that are also just as rare, it's a breezy watch that could pair nicely with a tall glass of wine one evening.‐ Hollywood Reporter

100% Selah and the Spades (2019) Quietly confident in its unconventional yet clear point of view, Selah and the Spades signals a bright future for a promising young filmmaker.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2019
83% Before You Know It (2019) A lighthearted and engrossing family drama.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
88% Hala (2019) Unfortunately, the touches that endear us to Hala during the first half of the film are almost nonexistent in its second half, adding up to a choppy, incoherent finish.‐ Hollywood Reporter

83% Share (2019) Aided by down-to-earth portrayals and a compelling cinematographic through-line that echoes the both ordinary and complex nature of this kind of violence, the film blurs genre lines between coming-of-age drama and thriller.‐ Hollywood Reporter
