Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" is a modern blockbuster, full of the visual and aural and narrative tics and cliches we expect from modern blockbusters, but at the same time it's ferociously and sometimes strangely original: a work of fervor, as grandiose and obsessive as its Biblical hero.


It Felt Like Love

This snapshot of modern teen mating rituals is loaded with heartfelt and keenly observed pessimism, which is conveyed in super-tight closeups, roving camerawork and restrictive framing that convey the limits of the characters' world and worldview.


Jodorowsky's Dune

"Jodorowsky's Dune" is an account of a film that was never made, despite all the love that its makers poured into it, and yet it's surprisingly warm and inspirational.



As directed by Josh C. Waller and written by Daniel Noah, "McCanick" is a tedious, often incompetently assembled mass of cop-on-the-edge clich├ęs.


The Cold Lands

This intense and poignant drama from writer-director Tom Gilroy is about a young man whose world is suddenly turned upside-down; it's a throwback to 1990s American indie films that were more about atmosphere, characterization and regional detail than gimmicks.

Veronica Mars

I can't imagine anyone who liked the show not enjoying this movie, even though the first half is stronger than the second. All in all the movie delivers what you expect but not in the way that you expect it.
