64% That Sugar Film (2015) "The food-doc shelf is crowded with good-for-you movies, including "Fed Up," "Fast Food Nation," "Food Inc." and, yes, "Super Size Me." "That Sugar Film" is a worthy addition, entertaining while informing. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Jul 30, 2015
34% The Ardor (2015) ""Ardor" lacks tension, maybe because the actors are playing archetypes: Little is said, and there are few surprises. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 17, 2015
100% Famous Nathan (2015) "A portrait of a classic rags-to-riches success, and a tough boss who was fanatical about the quality of his fare and the speed of its delivery. " ‐ New York Times

86% Gabriel (2015) "This film maintains its anxious themes throughout, which makes for some tedious stretches because the tension never breaks. Despite that, or maybe because of it, "Gabriel" is unexpectedly absorbing. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 19, 2015

Posted Mar 12, 2015
85% Kung Fu Elliot (2015) "Watching Elliot and his fellows stumble determinedly through shoots, pleasantly delusional about the movie's prospects, is mildly amusing, a testament to indie film's appeal for a certain hardy strain of dreamer. " ‐ New York Times
