Posted May 13, 2016
2/5 30% Love Thy Nature (2016) "In a style that's becoming typical of indie science documentaries, it mixes solid, well established material with poorly substantiated ideas and a tendency to whimsy, but at least it's pretty. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted May 3, 2016
4.5/5 78% Sin Alas (2015) "This is a extraordinarily bold first film which, though it certainly has its flaws, makes intriguing viewing. " ‐ Eye for Film

3.5/5 100% The Divide "At a time when political and economic ideologies are very much in flux, The Divide makes a valuable contribution to communicating the framework of the debate -- and to explaining why it matters. " ‐ Eye for Film

4/5 62% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "It's a contemplative, melancholy work which hints at a semi-religious ecstasy rooted in the mundane and kept just out of reach. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 25, 2016
4/5 88% Havana Motor Club (2016) "Perlmutt really knows his stuff and effortlessly evokes the iconic movie imagery that evolved to show these automobiles at their best. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Temps (2016) "Superficially -- and this is a story very much concerned with the superficial -- this is a light, breezy affair with sexually assertive characters who know what they want and have a great time together. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3.5/5 60% Viva (2007) "Does Viva work if one doesn't get the joke? By and large, yes. It's still full of wonderful characters, there's the occasional quip reminiscent of Russ Meyer at his finest, and the sets are spectacular. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Mar 30, 2016
