5.8/10 84% Joe (2014) " This Southern Gothic story is overwrought and, despite its beautifully decayed deep South setting and flawed characters who might be interesting underneath all their angst, is actually kind of boring." — Paste Magazine

5.9/10 83% Rob the Mob (2014) " The problem here is that the film wavers between free-flowing comedic chaos and melodramatic poignancy -- it's much more successful with the former. " — Paste Magazine

8.3/10 81% Grand Piano (2014) " Grand Piano should be taken with a winter's supply of road salt, but if you can get past the absurdity of it all you are in for a pretty good time." — Paste Magazine

6.5/10 91% Kids for Cash (2014) " Its small filmmaking flaws aside, the story of Kids For Cash is a powerful and important one." — Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 17, 2014
9/10 95% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " The Coens have created a film that is wholly original and highly entertaining." — Paste Magazine
Posted Dec 5, 2013
7/10 63% The Summit (2013) " The Summit tries to make sense of what happened through this haze of fact and memory, but certain vital questions are left unanswered (through no fault of the filmmakers')." — Paste Magazine
Posted Oct 4, 2013
4/10 48% Maniac (2013) " Even the most ardent horror fan might struggle to find something to enjoy in Franck Khalfoun's remake of William Lustig's 1980 slasher classic, Maniac." — Paste Magazine
Posted Jun 27, 2013
5/10 45% To The Wonder (2013) " Frankly, To The Wonder becomes bogged and down and more than a little bit boring over the course of its two hours." — Paste Magazine
Posted Apr 19, 2013
8/10 88% The Silence (2013) " In a field of clich├ęd psychological crime thrillers, The Silence stands out." — Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2013
7/10 65% Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey (2013) " An engaging, sweeping overview of Pineda's story, which is buoyed by the cheesy but classic sounds of Journey and Pineda's soft-spoken, humble charm." — Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2013
7/10 94% Lore (2013) " Saskia Rosendahl, who plays Lore, is marvelous to watch." — Paste Magazine
Posted Feb 8, 2013
6/10 87% Happy People: A Year in the Taiga (2013) " Happy People is an engrossing look at a culture that many viewers have never been exposed to, and as usual, Herzog's even-paced, accented narration is a joy to listen to." — Paste Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2013
9/10 93% Amour (2012) " Mundanely horrifying and extremely powerful." — Paste Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2012
4/10 18% Smiley (2012) " Mostly it fails, due in large part to the poor acting, low production values, and a weak script that bogs down what might otherwise have been an interesting film." — Paste Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2012
8/10 83% Seven Psychopaths (2012) " There's a lot going on here, but it all amounts to a really good time." — Paste Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2012
9/10 97% Monsieur Lazhar (2012) " The acting is stellar throughout the film, from the one-named Algerian actor Fellag's subtle and warm portrayal of the title character, to the cast of precocious children who make up his classroom." — Paste Magazine
Posted Apr 6, 2012
5/10 50% Good for Nothing (2012) " Unfortunately, Good For Nothing's references and aspirations are a bit higher than what is actually on the screen." — Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 22, 2012
7.5/10 67% Shut Up Little Man! (2011) " The film, directed by Matthew Bate, has been compared stylistically to Errol Morris's work, and it's an accurate assessment." — Paste Magazine
Posted Sep 3, 2011
8/10 86% Circumstance (2011) " An excellent look at how the modern youth of Iran skirts the boundaries between the religious state and personal freedom, and all the risks that are involved." — Paste Magazine
Posted Aug 27, 2011
7/10 74% The Whistleblower (2011) " The Whistleblower skirts the line between political thriller, conspiracy picture and melodrama, but it does it well, building the right amount of tension and intrigue as it gallops along." — Paste Magazine
