Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
—— Visions of Mary Frank (2014) " Deeply loving, if too slight" — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 15, 2014
—— The Jewish Cardinal (2014) " Informative, absorbing, but as obvious as its title and a bit too glib for its own good, this French import will appeal mainly to religious addicts fascinated by the feverishly agenda-ridden internal workings of the Catholic Church." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 11, 2014
100% Dancing In Jaffa (2014) " Marvelously moving and quite inspirational documentary about the potent, peace-making power of dance." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 10, 2014
74% The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden (2014) " Fascinating documentary about the human history of the Galapagos Islands which is, as is so often the case, more dramatic than any kind of cooked-up tropical fiction." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 3, 2014
—— Nothing Without You (2014) " So abysmal, so unintentionally funny." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 28, 2014
95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) " Completely captivating doc about the most undiscovered of real artists" — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 28, 2014
57% Breathe In (2014) " It's a pity so much deadly serious effort has gone into something that isn't very original or exciting in the first place." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 25, 2014
83% Big Joy (2014) " Completely engrossing, rich and humane documentary about the life of a too-little known pioneer in life and art." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 21, 2014
7% Maladies (2014) " This is Franco's second directorial collaboration with the artiste who goes by the name of Carter, and hopefully they won't push their luck further." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 21, 2014
82% Rob the Mob (2014) " Director Raymond De Felitta, working from a strong, vivid script by Jonathan Fernandez, finds the perfect mordant comic tone with which to tell this improbable but true story." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 20, 2014
13% McCanick (2014) " The plot of McCanick, sketchy to begin with, is made even more so by Daniel Noah's woozy, fragmented script, and direction by Josh C. Waller for which "clumsy" is almost too kind a description." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 20, 2014
77% Exposed (2014) " Doc about practitioners of the "New Burlesque" salutes their admirable courage and staunch individuality, but their fully uncensored, fully unfettered exhibitionism may not be for the squeamish." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 13, 2014
45% The Art of the Steal (2014) " The whole affair is so slickly mechanical, devoid of any real thrill or authentic human feeling, that it begs the question: Don't even genre movies need some kind of a soul, too?" — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 13, 2014
77% Veronica Mars (2014) " ...a good-natured movie that feels like one elaborate, protracted TV episode." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 11, 2014
—— Tabloid Truth (2014) " ...testosterone-overloaded, very generic and very violent genre piece." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 7, 2014
43% The Face of Love (2014) " What could have made this clanking contraption of a film work would have been charismatically involving performances from its more-than-able leads. But Posen's insecure style of shooting...robs the actors of any fluid rhythm or potent connection." — Film Journal International
Posted Mar 6, 2014
—— Venus Talk (2014) " It all goes down pretty easily but is pretty forgettable withal..." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 27, 2014
40% Holy Ghost People (2014) " Utterly suspense-less, noxious missing-person would-be thriller, overflowing with tired clichés and off-putting revelations." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 21, 2014
45% In Secret (2014) " Effectively economical adaptation of Zola's Thérèse Raquin results in a handsomely produced, highly satisfying psychological thriller." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 20, 2014
11% Barefoot (2014) " [Barefoot], constructed of shards of other movies and a surfeit of bad ideas, is lacking in originality and positively perspires in its flailingly failed attempt to deliver quirky entertainment." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 20, 2014
24% Pompeii (2014) " Not even a minimal intellectual regard for what the filmmakers have callously deemed a brain-dead and bloodthirsty international audience has been granted; the resulting movie is little more than a violent killing machine." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 20, 2014
70% About Last Night (2014) " A question of sheer ballsy attitude over true comic substance, this raunchy remake does the job. Sort of." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 14, 2014
52% Adult World (2014) " Andy Cochran's script for Adult World, by turns literate and quirky, and sharply observant throughout, provides the amiable fuel for this funny, endearing study of youthful aspiration." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 13, 2014
73% The Attorney (2014) " Unfortunately, despite the subject's import, rookie director Yang shows his inexperience with a needlessly confusing and fractured flashback-filled technique...which keeps one at arm's length from the dramatic involvement." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 7, 2014
60% Jobriath A.D. (2014) " Kieran Turner's Jobriath A.D. is an admirable attempt to rescue the singer from the junk heap of failed pop culture & it was obviously made with a lot of love & care. However...only a sketchy impression of the artist's real personality comes through" — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 31, 2014
57% The Tightrope (2014) " For a documentary which literally concerns itself with drama, Peter Brook: The Tightrope is surprisingly devoid of it." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 31, 2014
22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " Forced and unfunny in the extreme." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 31, 2014
—— Miss Granny (2014) " Writer-director Hwang Dong Hyuk has fashioned an abrasively funny farce, filled with droll, observant details about Korean pop culture...and the always farcically fertile, highly combative family unit." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 30, 2014
95% Stranger by the Lake (2014) " The existential loneliness...and the evanescent nature of deeper human interaction in a world where sexual compulsion takes top priority are evoked with a powerfully dry yet keen observation that is heartbreaking." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 23, 2014
56% Mercedes Sosa: The Voice of Latin America (2014) " Rodrigo H. Vila's documentary...is a deeply loving portrait, with a leisurely pace that proves quite rewarding, as it encourages a rich immersion in the music and persona of its great subject." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 23, 2014
23% Gimme Shelter (2014) " Well-intentioned but weirdly uninvolving account of one very important aspect of our contemporary urban blight." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 23, 2014
20% Indigo Children (2014) " Ah, mumblecore, mumblecore, when will you end?" — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 16, 2014
38% Black Coffee (2014) " Set in a weirdly sterile and unconvincing yuppie utopia, this would-be serious study of heterosexual commingling has an empty, synthetic quality from its very first scenes." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 10, 2014
17% The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box (2014) " This elaborately constructed, visually appealing, well-cast adventure film should have worked, but is sunk by a singularly unmusical script and perfunctory handling." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 9, 2014
—— Truth (2014) " What begins as a rather sweet gay romance and intriguing character study unfortunately degenerates into a luridly over-the-top farrago" — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 9, 2014
—— In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter (2013) " Documentary portrait of a great photographer is hampered by the taciturn nature of its subject." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 3, 2014
57% Interior. Leather Bar. (2014) " A truly one-of-a-kind film from James Franco & Co. seriously, intelligently and movingly addresses sexuality in film" — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 3, 2014
76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " Perhaps the most visually beautiful film this year, Ralph Fiennes' triumphant second time at bat as a director is an intelligent and deeply moving account of a little-known but vital part of Charles Dickens' life." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 19, 2013
97% The Selfish Giant (2013) " Enigmatically titled but thrillingly direct, heart-shattering portrait of two boys' hardscrabble lives earns an easy comparison with some of the greatest Italian neo-realist works about kids in perilous poverty." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 19, 2013
88% The New Rijksmuseum (Parts 1 and 2) (2013) " An exhaustingly long but ultimately worthwhile doc with a great, deserving subject at its center: one of the world's great museums, undergoing an overhaul." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 17, 2013
94% Her (2014) " Singularly brilliant concept makes for a highly intriguing viewing experience until it begins to peter out towards the end." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 16, 2013
40% Friend 2: The Legacy (2013) " For pure genre lovers, all of this will be pure catnip, and for others, once you accept all the derivativeness and noisome clichés, it may deliver real, if somewhat primitive, migraine-inducing entertainment." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 13, 2013
92% Liv & Ingmar (2013) " Forget Liz and Dick or Brangelina, for true art-house fans -- who could be called the Criterion Set today -- Bergman and Ullman are the couple we want to know about, and this doc really delivers the goods." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 12, 2013
—— Beatocello's Umbrella (2013) " Gachot has been following Richner since 1996, and his film is a loving, straightforward portrait of the man." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 12, 2013
79% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " Fetchingly produced, highly diverting inside look at the making of Mary Poppins nonetheless suffers from paucity in the script department. " — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 11, 2013
69% S#x Acts (2013) " [The director's]non-judgmental, unmelodramatic, deadpan approach is beautifully gauged, somehow creating in the viewer a grudging admiration for this unsinkable, if always wrong, valiant little warrior." — Film Journal International
Posted Dec 5, 2013
49% Black Nativity (2013) " There's a wealth of talent, most of it poorly used, in this disappointingly misconceived holiday offering." — Film Journal International
Posted Nov 27, 2013
18% The Christmas Candle (2013) " Only the most diehard fans of holiday pablum will be able to swallow this Bible-banging hunk of whimsy." — Film Journal International
Posted Nov 21, 2013
76% Bettie Page Reveals All (2013) " This deeply affectionate and comprehensive bio-doc will be a boon to Bettie Page enthusiasts -- and who isn't one, really?" — Film Journal International
Posted Nov 21, 2013
71% Everyday (2013) " Set in a seaside town, there are quite lovely images of the ocean and fields... When a flock of geese is captured gliding through the sky, the camera seems to positively lust after them, because so little else is happening." — Film Journal International
