xXx: The Return of Xander Cage 4
"The other troublemaking Baldwin."
5 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "A recurring image in "I Am Not Your Negro," a wounded but finally hopeful documentary, is of forward movement — street lights or palm trees passing by from the POV of a car’s passenger, and so on. It expresses, I think, the state of mind of its wounded but finally hopeful subject, the writer James Baldwin." (more)
"Get them long before they get you."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT MONSTER FEST 2016: Given its title, I wonder if the script for "Prevenge" at one point had a more explicitly sci-fi angle at one point, playing out as something much more in line with "The Terminator" rather than taking a darker route where, if its murderous mother-to-be earns the audience’s forgiveness, it’s a much more troublesome decision. I’d kind of like to see that movie sometime, but Alice Lowe seems ideally suited for this take, and she sure as heck makes it interesting." (more)
"Another Kore-eda family under intriguing strain."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "There's a typhoon in Hirokazu Kore-eda's "After the Storm", but it arrives late, too late to be the complete inspiration for the film's English language title (the original Japanese, "Umi yori mo mada fukaku", translates to "Even Deeper than the Sea"). Whoever came up with it was onto something, though; despite the understated, observational bent of Kore-eda's films, there is implied turmoil in these characters' pasts that makes how they tackle the present worth watching."

"Light satire with something stronger possibly hidden beneath."
3 stars
Jay Seaver says... "A couple days after seeing it, "The Brand New Testament" seems a bit more clever in its satire than it did in the moment, when its loose storytelling can make it seem to have only the vaguest idea where it wants to go with its critique of religion. It takes a moment or three to realize that chaos and lack of direction are part of the point, although filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael’s fondness for the weird doesn’t always translate into the dry, absurdist wit it’s going for."
