Posted Feb 26, 2013
2/5 54% The Look of Love (2013) "A clear precursor to this film is Milos Forman's The People vs. Larry Flynt, but the depth and ambiguity that film brought to its amiable monster of a protagonist just doesn't kick in here. " ‐ The List

Posted Jan 18, 2013
4/5 65% Antiviral (2013) "The film sags a little in its final third, and all the white-on-white interiors get a bit wearing for the eyes; but this chip off the old block has a strong talent behind it and much to recommend it. " ‐ The List
