3/5 No Score Yet The Newburgh Sting ""A documentary about issues that are complex enough that the angle taken here is hardly a problem for an intelligent audience." " ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 21, 2014
2/5 No Score Yet Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story (2014) "A mild, mostly insignificant and fairly deficient documentary that might appeal to some very curious fans, if they don't mind its ironic censoring of vaginas. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 20, 2014
4/5 100% Underwater Dreams (2014) "As an underdog competition film, it lacks suspense yet wins in personality. When it becomes an issue doc focused on immigration, though, is where it's most triumphant. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 7, 2014
1/5 8% America: Imagine the World Without Her (2014) "The actual problem with America is that it is structured poorly, with a third act that seems tacked on even though that's where it finally gets to the point. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jul 4, 2014
3/5 92% CODE BLACK (2014) "Awesome for its access but near whiny in its subjective approach to the healthcare issue, as a film about idealistic young doctors directed by an idealistic young doctor. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted Jun 23, 2014
4/5 78% The New York Review of Books: A 50 Year Argument (2014) "Surprisingly one of Scorsese's most accessible and enjoyable nonfiction films, more digestible for a wide audience than one would expect given its highbrow subject matter. " ‐ Nonfics

Posted May 30, 2014
4/5 89% The Trials Of Muhammad Ali (2013) "Works better as a history of events than a biographical film about Ali. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014
3/5 63% One Direction: This Is Us (2013) "The boys are very likable, but the film around them is still very repetitive. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014
5/5 98% When We Were Kings (1996) "Almost too concentrated on Ali, but the story plays well with an exhilarating pace and plenty of well-remembered expositional details. " ‐ Nonfics

2/5 86% Red Obsession (2013) "A lot of worthless talk about the greatness of Bordeaux takes too much away from the very few fascinating parts of the story. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014
3/5 65% Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve (2013) "Possibly too appealing and accessible to be taken seriously enough for impact. But at least it's entertaining and informative to a degree for us layfolk. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014
2/5 88% Fire In The Blood (2013) "Tediously conventional and uncinematic doc about a worthwhile story and issue, this pseudo sequel to How to Survive a Plague is less emotionally affecting " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014
5/5 No Score Yet The Way Things Go (1987) "You really can't get much more perfect than this, at least in terms of executing a planned showcase of reality in the laws-of-physics sense. I only wish it was longer. " ‐ Nonfics

Posted May 30, 2014
4/5 70% American Promise (2013) "Doesn't hold your hand as it reaches what it's conveying. It's a difficult doc that plays easy. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014
2/5 71% Blood Brother (2013) "A documentary with an originally structured first-person narrative. But it is still insufficiently directed, and some of what it omits makes it seem suspect. " ‐ Nonfics
Posted May 30, 2014

2/5 60% In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter (2013) "This one is strictly for the fans, of which I am now one thanks to the film but I can't recommend it as an introduction alone. As a film, it is a little too dull. " ‐ Nonfics

Posted May 1, 2014
