- Excerpt: “Black Souls” hurts.
Clouds of Sils Maria
- Excerpt: one of the truly great films about acting, “All About Eve” refracted through the lens of Bergman’s “Persona,” squared.
Kill Me Three Times
- Excerpt: …despite an interestingly assembled cast and the unique location of Eagles Nest, Australia, Stenders’ film is akin to watching someone move chess pieces around a board.
- Excerpt: What we have here is a muddied mess of erratic ramblings, a movie that contains a lot of individual surreal elements and has nothing to hold it all together apart from Gosling’s own blind faith that weird = clever.
- Excerpt: Gosling shows a certain kind of promise and I’m sure he’ll make a great movie one day as a director. This just isn’t it.

- Excerpt: A seemingly innocent matchmaking scheme goes horribly awry in this deft and delicate 2009 drama from Asghar Farhadi.
Beyond the Mask
- Excerpt: Wannabe Christian swashbuckler throws a lot of stuff up on the screen in the hopes that something will stick as exciting and romantic. None of it does.
- Excerpt: It wants to be a faith-based film, a historical drama, and an action/adventure movie at the same time. Those three things are blended together awkwardly, leading to shifts in tone that can be jarring.
- Excerpt: Less ‘Fargo Lite’ than ‘Fargo Flat’…a thoroughly pedestrian stroll through Coen brothers territory.
- Excerpt: An entertaining but slow-paced thriller about fraud and murder in a small town.
- Excerpt: A delectable, artery-clogging delight…
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
Dial a Prayer
The Divergent Series: Insurgent
Kidnapping Mr. Heineken
Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter
- Excerpt: ‘Last Knights’ has an exhilarating ending and an archetypal display of loyalty as Clive Owen proves his devotion to Morgan Freeman.
That Guy Dick Miller
The Water Diviner
While We’re Young
2014 Films In Theaters Now In Select Areas
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
- Excerpt: The crime melodrama, which its makers have dubbed a ‘black comedy thriller,’ has a few oddball moments but is never funny, and it certainly isn’t thrilling.
Jesus Town, USA
2015 Films (Coming Soon)
As We Were Dreaming
- Excerpt: It’s a vivid reenactment of Leipzig in the early 90s, but, saddled as it is with a mediocre scipt, it’s more fun to think about it than to actually watch it.
A Celtic Pilgrimage with John O’Donohue
- Excerpt: A beautifully filmed documentary in which John O’Donohue explains the importance of landscape in Celtic spirituality.
A Wonderful Cloud
- Excerpt: A split couple avoid making things official in this awkward but honest relationship tale.
