  1. As I Lay Dying 2013 A startlingly effective adaptation of William Faulkner's challenging novel by James Franco. full review
  2. The Big Wedding 2013 A game cast and lots of gamey R-rated shenanigans can't compensate for the silly comic contrivances that dominate The Big Wedding. full review
  3. Everyday 2013 An admirable idea in theory proves to be a real slog to sit through. full review
  4. Simon Killer 2013 An unpalatable Franco-American entree one would like to send back to wherever it came from. full review
  5. Sweetwater 2013 A handsomely designed, occasionally funny but ultimately empty female vengeance yarn. full review
  6. Atlas Shrugged: Part II 2012 If the novel Atlas Shrugged is ultimate libertarian porn, then the first two installments of the screen adaptation are soggy softcore. full review
  7. Butter 2012 Hardly the high-priced spread, this condescending comedy about Middle America will score with some audiences and put off others. full review
  8. Get the Gringo 2012 Almost invigorating in its disreputability; it's both cheesy and striking, corny and bold, dismissible and yet strangely appealing for its singularity. full review
  9. Lay the Favorite 2012 Like a loud guest at a party who's amusing for a while, until you just have to escape to the next room. full review
  10. Nobody Walks 2012 A young woman's arrival creates sexual upheavals in a cool, artistic L.A. household, in an unsatisfying drama that might have worked better as a comedy. full review
  11. The Pact 2012 Basic, efficient little horror item scares up a few little shocks, possibly enough for a modest commercial career. full review
  12. Top of the Lake 2012 An edgy, disturbing and altogether first-rate crime drama that very much centers on women, though it does have a lot of daddy issues. full review
  13. Albert Nobbs 2011 Notable performances by Glenn Close and Janet McTeer mark this carefully made but muted story of women passing as men in 19th-century Dublin. full review
  14. The Artist 2011 A beguiling tale about Hollywood's silent movie days that is itself silent, this made-in-L.A. French feature will charm cinephiles with its affection for one of the movies' golden ages. full review
  15. Cat Run 2011 A brazenly efficient and articulate female assassin nearly worthy of a Tarantino or Coen Brothers movie sticks out from amidst the schlocky criminal muck of Cat Run, a self-consciously sleazy comic crime saga composed of facetious elements. full review
  16. I Melt with You 2011 An aggressive look at men behaving badly will provoke strong reactions pro and con. full review
  17. Red State 2011 Red State is cleverly contrarian enough to get a rise out of almost any audience. full review
  18. Seven Days In Utopia 2011 While corny at times, this sports drama -- based on David Cook's best-selling novel -- is sure to find a welcoming audience with its down-home Christian message. full review
  19. The Whale 2011 Serious-minded, thought-provoking animal documentary will have a lengthy life, mostly in ancillary markets. full review
