No Score Yet Pyaasa (1999) "The final third of this 1957 Indian musical is convoluted but also moving, as dramatic compositions heighten the narrative conflict between artistic idealism and an avaricious society. " ‐ Chicago Reader

No Score Yet The Far Shore (The Art of Lust) (1976) "As conventional drama the film is defeated by its cardboard characters, yet Wieland has an eye for soft, liquid colors and for compositions that suggest nature's gentleness and create a loose, open sense of space. " ‐ Chicago Reader

No Score Yet Within Our Gates (1920) " Though the narrative structure is somewhat choppy, director Oscar Micheaux otherwise demonstrates mastery of the silent form, using supple compositions and careful editing to amplify the characters' emotions in a manner that makes sound seem superfluous.
