100% Friend (2005) " First-time filmmaker Fischer examines the issues of Islamic extremism, Western decadence, and fraternal bonds, producing a compelling story that uses character and story ambiguity to appraise the fallibility of thinking one can ever truly know another. " ‐ Village Voice

57% Sheriff (2005) " Kraus seems determined to juxtapose the serenity of Hewett's downtime with the thrills of the dirty work, but as seen in the film it's all the same. " ‐ Village Voice

57% Emile (2005) " It's appropriate that the director calls this the final chapter in a trilogy about struggling with one's identity -- he shows none of his own while mishandling someone else's. " ‐ Village Voice

65% Coach Carter (2005) " Too vicious to speak to bleeding-heart liberals, too pro-academia to speak to No Child Left Behind advocates, and too preachy to speak to youths. " ‐ Village Voice

11% Reagan: In the Face of Evil (2004) " Overreaching in many of its laudatory appraisals, the film is mostly GOP-boosting rhetoric in the guise of a dull History Channel special. " ‐ Village Voice

0% Merci Docteur Rey (2002) " With Yank Andrew Litvack pinch-hitting for producers Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, Merci is free of much of that M-I pomposity, replacing it with an unnerving drollness. " ‐ Village Voice

0% Chooch (2004) " Devoid of Sopranos stereotypes, the film charms with its p.c. portrayal of Italian Americans, yet the depiction of Mexicans veers toward the offensive. " ‐ Village Voice

41% Zhou Yu's Train (2004) " The love triangle among pottery maker Zhou Yu (Gong Li), her long-distance poet paramour (Tony Leung Ka Fai), and her fellow traveler (Honglei Sun) devolves from opaque mystery into boring melodramatics and incoherent contrivances. " ‐ Village Voice
