The End of the Tour

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: Like an energetic terrier and a cautious great dane sussing each other up, Eisenberg and Segel are an unlikely yet perfect pairing in director James Ponsoldt’s dual character study, one which plays like the road trip version of “My Dinner with Andre.”

A LEGO Brickumentary

[New Today] James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
[New Today] Donald Jay Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion

  • Excerpt: Really nothing more than an extended promotional reel for the Danish company,…but despite being a mite padded, it’s a mostly sprightly tour through the byways of Legoland.

Big Significant Things

Carson Lund @ Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: Big Significant Things, whose anodyne tastefulness effectively lumps it into a big vat of likeminded Sundance-or-SXSW-endorsed offerings, apparently knows it’s a trivial document of privileged white-people problems, but that self-awareness oddly enough doesn’t stop it from being that exact thing.

Samba

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice

  • Excerpt: A French dramedy about a Senegalese immigrant with a stunning performance by Omar Sy.

Unexpected

[New Today] Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies

  • Excerpt: This is an intelligent film that speaks volumes about its characters, and it does so with sensitivity to the specifics of their individual experiences.

Irrational Man

[New Today] Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: [Allen’s] latest, repetitive in and of itself, finds the director spinning his wheels, rehashing themes in a stilted screenplay which the director fails to enliven via his actors.

Do I Sound Gay?

Andy Crump @ Birth.Movies.Death.

  • Excerpt: …Thorpe’s efforts here are brisk, buoyant, and bright enough in equal measure that you feel like he could singlehandedly influence the direction of discourse on the topic of gay rights with a single seventy-odd minute documentary.

[New Today] Sarah Ward @ artsHub

The Suicide Theory

Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat

  • Excerpt: The Suicide Theory is funny and disturbing, and a picture that’s tough to take your eyes off once you start watching it.

[New Today] Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion

  • Excerpt: A darkly humorous rumination about the primacy of fate or free will presented in the form of a twisty thriller with a smidgen of the supernatural…well worth investigating.

Tangerine

Andy Crump @ Paste Magazine

  • Excerpt: [Sean Baker’s] aesthetic boasts neon vibrancy, the kind of sparks only real life can generate, but amidst the bombastic crackle of his mise en scène, he maintains a down-to-Earth naturalism.

[New Today] Stacia Kissick Jones @ She Blogged By Night
[New Today] Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat

  • Excerpt: While Tangerine does a brilliant job of establishing a verite feel, there’s so little actual story that it becomes difficult to get involved at anything deeper than a surface level.

Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer

  • Excerpt: Is there a film out right now more relevant than ‘Tangerine’?
