This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (May 10-12, 2013

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.

2013 Films Not Yet In Theaters

Bending Steel

Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: At the Tribeca Film Festival, a straightforward portrait of a man of many contradictions finds its strength as its central strongman develops his act.

Blood Brother

Ryan McNeil @ The Matinee

  • Excerpt: One young man’s journey of self-discovery leads to an amazing documentary full of heartache, life, and love.

Caucus

Ryan McNeil @ The Matinee

  • Excerpt: Look past the fancy busses…listen past the snappy soundbites. What you’ll see is simply seven people who want to lead.

La chance de ma vie

Tiago Ramos @ Split Screen [Portuguese]

The Colony

Marina Antunes @ Quiet Earth

Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia

Amber Wilkinson @ Eye For Film

  • Excerpt: . Wrathall’s considered, thorough and thoroughly entertaining film gives not just a sense of the man but also the importance to the world of iconoclasts like him.

Lily

Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: At the Tribeca Film Festival, so much emotional precision in Matt Creed’s debut feature about a young woman with an uncertain future after surviving cancer.

Odayaka

Amber Wilkinson @ Eye For Film

  • Excerpt: The film – whose cold palette drips with melancholy – is, ironically, given all those pent up emotions Uchida wants to outwardly express, best in its quieter moments.

Oxyana

Amber Wilkinson @ Eye For Film

  • Excerpt: While Dunne certainly succeeds in shining a sympathetic light on those who are in the grip of addiction, he seems happy to leave the root causes and possible solutions in the dark.

Slaughter Nick for President

[New Today] Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat

Somos tão Jovens

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

Valentine Road

Ryan McNeil @ The Matinee

  • Excerpt: A clear cut tragedy becomes tragically complexed.

Vehicle 19

  • Excerpt: OMG, is this supposed to be this funny?

White Frog

[New Today] Peter Martin @ Twitch

2012 Films

Barrymore

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Ultimately, Barrymore impresses much more as a showcase for a bravado performance than as a piece of storytelling or as a film improving upon a play. There’s definite value in preserving Plummer’s exuberant display with the clarity and permanence of a feature film.

Compliance

Faust

Tiago Ramos @ Split Screen [Portuguese]

Free Radicals: A History of Experimental Film

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: To get the most out of it, go into ‘Free Radicals’ as if you were watching Pip Chodorov screen some of his favorite films from his personal collection, not as a lecture designed to give you a working knowledge of the history of experimental film.
