C+ 48% Wolf Creek 2 (2014) " While the politics and film as a whole are not entirely successful, there is much to admire in Wolf Creek 2, not the least if which is director Greg McLean's chutzpah." — The Playlist

D 8% Don Peyote (2014) " Should he direct again, it is possible he will create a film worthy of his talent, and worth watching. Don Peyote, however, is as big a bust as the apocalypse of December 2012." — The Playlist

B+ —— Ukraine Is Not a Brothel " Sasha and the girls of FEMEN may be black-and-blue, but they are most certainly not defeated." — The Playlist

F 10% The Bag Man (2014) " Watch Cusack and you will see the face of an actor who knows how bad this is, and who must be aware of how far he has fallen. If only he could see the face of the viewer. " — The Playlist

B- 90% Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir " Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir is a rare opportunity to hear a master filmmaker speak about his life. Both his haters and fans will agree, it is a highly watchable documentary. But don't expect either group to feel they have heard the whole story. " — The Playlist

D+ 11% I Will Follow You Into The Dark (2013) " Davidson's movie aims for Polanski dread, but instead feels jumbled and weak-kneed - half made-for-Lifetime, half horror-wannabe." — The Playlist
Posted Oct 11, 2013
B 93% Sample This (2013) " ...it is hard to walk away too disappointed when the stories are this fascinating-and when the music is this triumphant." — The Playlist
Posted Oct 11, 2013
A- 93% Mother Of George (2013) " From the acting...to the music (especially Strauss's "Four Last Songs), it is remarkably full of life." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 27, 2013
B+ 86% Abuse of Weakness (2014) " If making Abuse of Weakness was a necessary step in Catherine Breillat's recovery, then it surely ranks as one of the most important-if not the most important-projects of her career." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 13, 2013
B+ 69% Visitors (2014) " Reggio's film is an artistic and aesthetic achievement unlikely to be equaled in 2013, and perhaps the only film in recent memory which can proudly claim to be unlike anything else we have ever seen." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 9, 2013
D —— Are You Here? (2014) " You Are Here is a shockingly inept comedy, a project with the look and style of a mid-'90s Ivan Reitman or Harold Ramis comedy, not the first film from one of our finest TV writers." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 9, 2013
A- 92% I Am Breathing (2013) " ...I Am Breathing is not a documentary intended to induce sobbing. It is, instead, a film about dying that is stunningly alive, wildly optimistic, and always insightful and entertaining." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 5, 2013
B- 21% Copperhead (2013) " For this audience, Ron Maxwell's film will prove entertaining and though-provoking, at the very least. For the rest, it is unlikely to provide much dramatic sustenance." — The Playlist
Posted Jul 19, 2013
B 33% Bert and Arnie's Guide to Friendship (2013) " The fact that Bert and Arnie has a few laughs, some nice performances and does not beat the viewer over the head with a slapstick-lead-pipe means it is a film worthy of respect." — The Playlist
