Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
4/5 79% Welcome To New York " Despite an elemental focus, Ferrara has fashioned a casually complex moral tale." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 7, 2014
4/5 87% Exhibition (2014) " Joanna Hogg's intimate portrait of married life is her finest offering yet." — Little White Lies
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3.5/4 100% Marketa Lazarová (1967) " In less than a minute, before the film's opening titles even conclude, Marketa Lazarová has announced itself as something potentially unique, perhaps indefinable." — Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 23, 2014
78% Història de la meva mort (Story of My Death) " An impeccably realised riff on period piece traditions, the film takes as its subject two literary figures (Casanova and Dracula), then reconsiders and retrofits their personas into a deviously vulgar display of lasciviousness and tragic comeuppance." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 15, 2013
86% A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness " Forgoes such linearity in favour of an increasingly visceral triptych narrative that follows a mysterious loner from the margins of a commune to a trip into the wilderness." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 14, 2013
44% Blind Detective (Man Tam) " To's ambitious amalgam of comedic trappings and grisly crime analysis is just odd enough to remain of interest." — Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 14, 2013
87% Like Father, Like Son (2014) " Like Father, Like Son, his latest in a long line of unassuming family dramas, is one of his most heartbreaking works yet." — Slant Magazine
Posted Sep 14, 2013
3/4 93% This Is Martin Bonner (2013) " At its best, with its quiet, ominous pace in the early going and its economical distribution of information throughout, the film is reminiscent of Todd Haynes's Safe." — Slant Magazine
Posted Aug 12, 2013
94% The Past (2013) " A stirring, impressively acted piece of work, and another detailed account of familial nuance from a director working at a seemingly effortless clip, no matter the locale." — Slant Magazine
Posted May 17, 2013
93% A Touch of Sin (2013) " From the opening moments of Jia Zhang-ke's A Touch of Sin, something strange is afoot--and not just the unexpected flourish of violence which punctuates the first scene. " — Slant Magazine
Posted May 16, 2013
60% The Bling Ring (2013) " Sofia Coppola's fascination with the young and over-privileged reaches a logical plateau with The Bling Ring, a hyperaware consideration of celebrity intrigue and idolization. " — Slant Magazine
Posted May 16, 2013
5/5 95% Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia) (Strangers) (The Lonely Woman) (1954) " An influence on everyone from Michelangelo Antonioni to Jacques Rivette, this brave work still stands as a watershed." — Little White Lies
Posted May 9, 2013
—— Three Sisters (2013) " There's a palpable sense of both anger and sympathy on the part of Wang for the plight of these people, which falls in line with his major topical concerns." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
93% Frances Ha (2013) " Feels like an unusually intimate, personal piece, a return to Noah Baumbach's early, more naïvely optimistic phase." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
35% Passion (2013) " It's all the more fun when one allows the surface pleasures to bolster its themes." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
82% Something in the Air (2013) " As his career turned toward more mature, patient considerations in 2009 with Summer Hours, Assayas has begun to utilize his medium for more reflective purposes." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
45% To The Wonder (2013) " In the end, it's a particularly outré B-side to The Tree of Life's surprisingly more lucid and utilitarian watershed." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
93% Room 237 (2013) " More companion piece than standalone work, but it's rare that such an complementary creation could be so much fun." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
84% Leviathan (2013) " One of the most uniquely fashioned films ever produced. " — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
100% Gebo And The Shadow (2014) " Work is often credited with keeping man alive." — House Next Door
Posted Sep 17, 2012
—— Kibô no kuni (The Land of Hope) (2012) " One hates to begrudge an artist the freedom to explore the possibilities of their medium, but a pair of films by two of Japan's most aesthetically radical cult directors have given me pause. " — House Next Door
