Selma *** 1/2 Q&A video with Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Common, Dede Gardner, and Jeremy Kleiner, November 11, 2014 Q&A video with Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo, November 28, 2014 Q&A video with Ava DuVernay, Carmen Ejogo, Common, and Henry G. Sanders, December 18, 2014
The true brilliance of David Oyelowo's work--and that of Ava DuVernay, for that matter--lies in the delicate balance between duly respecting King as a historical icon and incisively studying King as a man. Read more...

PK *** 1/2
For once with an Aamir Khan vehicle, what is most memorable is not his predictably strong performance, but material and execution as fearless as he is. Read more...

A Most Violent Year ***
Oscar Isaac does terrifically layered and involving work as Abel's armor of seemingly unflappable confidence is consistently, increasingly under attack. Read more...

The Interview ***
In a less politically sensitive time, Randall Park's flat-out brilliant performance would be hailed as the breakout, star-making, even awards nomination-worthy, turn that it is. Read more...

Top Five *** 1/2
Chris Rock has made an entertainment that is not only a wild and rich study of his lead character but the character of the filmmaker himself. Read more...

Comet *** 1/2 Q&A event video with Emmy Rossum, Sam Esmail
Such an admittedly, unabashedly small scale story feels so powerfully universal, as if to transcend the weight and boundaries of space and time. Read more...

Nas: Time Is Illmatic *** 1/2 Q&A event video with Nas, One9, Erik Parker
Comprehensively covers a lot of historical ground and paints a vivid portrait of all that Nas the artist and Nasir Jones the person are in a remarkably efficient 75-minute run time. Read more...

Whiplash ****
It is hardly an exaggeration to say that words fail to adequately describe just how the performances, the music, the writing, the editing, the sound design, everything down to the most minute detail converge into a climax that is at once exciting, scary, intense, joyous, heartbreaking, exhilarating, and altogether powerfully cathartic. Read more...

The Book of Life *** 1/2 art show & music event video with Jorge Gutierrez & Gustavo Santaolalla Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Ice Cube, Kate del Castillo, Ron Perlman, Jorge Gutierrez, Guillermo del Toro interview video
It takes a work as strikingly stylized and completely out-of-the box visually as this to make one realize just how homogenized, and even lazy, mainstream animated features have become. Read more...
