This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Feb. 14-16, 2014)

Because of embargoes (those happy little restrictions on when critics can post reviews, good or bad), a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

Opening: Feb. 14-16, 2014

2014 Films (Coming Soon)

Fatal Assistance

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: Raoul Peck’s (“Lumumba”) impassioned documentary about international relief efforts in Haiti is a real eye opener with a disturbing undercurrent…not every critique hits a bulls eye.

Frost

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

Gabrielle

Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

Gunday

[New Today] Kathy Gibson @ Access Bollywood

I Am Yours

Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies

  • Excerpt: The interplay of sexual desire, acceptance, love and the confusion of these very primal desires at the core of our human essence is brilliantly presented in an elevated, thoughtful production.

The Last Sentence

Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer

  • Excerpt: Jan Troell’s exquisitely-shot film, like its subject, is cold and detached.

Love Is Not What It Used to Be

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

Make Your Move

Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]

Moon Rider

Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer

  • Excerpt: Exciting Danish documentary about cyclist Rasmus Quaade

Mother, I Love You

Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer

  • Excerpt: Review of Latvia’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2013 Academy Awards

Nije sve u lovi

Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]

Salvo

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

Venus in Fur

Carlos del Río @ El rincón de Carlos del Río [Spanish]

Walesa: Man of Hope

Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

Watchtower

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Some will find Watchtower slow or challenging, but I thoroughly enjoyed this character study, which swept me up in the troubled lives it shares. It’s a shame this Turkish drama seems resigned to obscurity.
