38% Home (2005) " It's all terribly self-referential." — Village Voice
Posted Sep 19, 2006
26% The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green (2006) " [A] most unfabulous, unfunny, and unwatchable embarrassment." — Village Voice
Posted Jun 13, 2006
17% Going Under (2006) " At times, inchoate ideas (emotional wounds hurt deeper than physical pain?) threaten to congeal into an actual theme, but that turns out to be, like the rest of the film, a drawn-out tease." — Village Voice
Posted Jun 13, 2006
83% Bombon: El Perro (2009) " How do you say 'shaggy-dog story' in Spanish?" — Village Voice
Posted Jun 6, 2006

Posted May 30, 2006
77% The Lady in Question is Charles Busch (2006) " The filmmakers go heavy on the hagiography and light on the revelation." — Village Voice
Posted Mar 21, 2006
6% Hate Crime (2005) " When the plot gets lost in irrational revenge fantasies, you'll wish you had stayed home watching reruns." — Village Voice
Posted Mar 14, 2006
91% Te doy mis ojos (Take My Eyes) (2006) " For once, it makes sense that the battered wife always returns to the abusive spouse, even if we don't believe his promises ('I've changed') any more than hers ('I'm never going back')." — Village Voice
Posted Mar 14, 2006
70% Cowboy Del Amor (2006) " A 60-year-old eccentric with a knack for self-promotion, Thompson makes an engaging documentary subject." — Village Voice
Posted Feb 7, 2006
67% Mrs. Henderson Presents (2006) " This is Dame Judi's show. However extraordinary an actor she may be, she cannot conceal the obvious fact that she's having the time of her life here. Isn't that delicious?" — Village Voice
Posted Dec 6, 2005
46% Rent (2005) " Rent is about as timely now as Gigi." — Village Voice
Posted Nov 23, 2005
46% Hellbent (2005) " The scariest thing about Hellbent is that somebody thought making this humorless gaysploitation slasher flick would be a good idea." — Village Voice
Posted Sep 13, 2005
25% Finding Eleazar (2005) " Only true opera diehards will appreciate the backstage psychodrama, a catalog aria of the singer's multiple neuroses." — Village Voice
Posted Sep 13, 2005
85% The Perfect Crime (El Crimen Perfecto)(Crimen ferpecto) (2005) " Spanish director de la Iglesia continues his streak of caustic social satires framed as send-ups of Hollywood genre clichés." — Village Voice
Posted Aug 16, 2005
66% O Homem Que Copiava (The Man Who Copied) (2005) " About as engaging as a paper jam." — Village Voice
Posted Apr 19, 2005
33% The Phantom of the Opera (2005) " Sure, all the ingredients of camp are there (oh, the hubris!), but this isn't a so-bad-it's-good classic. It's worse." — Village Voice
Posted Dec 21, 2004
59% Go Further (2004) " Go Further meanders -- narratively as well as geographically -- all over the map." — Village Voice
Posted Nov 16, 2004
18% After the Sunset (2004) " To pass the time between the product placements, director Brett Ratner tries to squeeze chuckles out of gay-panic set pieces, the quaint antics of colorful natives, and Woody Harrelson's surreal miscasting as the FBI agent." — Village Voice
Posted Nov 9, 2004
77% Bear Cub (Cachorro) (2004) " Bear Cub is much smarter than the average comedy." — Village Voice
Posted Nov 2, 2004
76% Brother to Brother (2004) " Not surprising for a film that uses a term paper as a framing device, Brother to Brother feels too much like a school project." — Village Voice
Posted Nov 2, 2004

Posted Oct 26, 2004
38% Happy Hour (2004) " Strain credulity. Shake until sudsy. Garnish with a maraschino cherry or Eric Stoltz. Serve chilled, straight up." — Village Voice
Posted Oct 19, 2004
6% Testosterone (Testosteroni) (2004) " A more accurate title would be Melatonin." — Village Voice
Posted Sep 7, 2004
33% Rockets Redglare (2004) " There's a human tragedy here waiting to be told; what we get, however, is a sordid, grotesque freak show." — Village Voice
Posted Sep 1, 2004
49% A Home at the End of the World (2004) " In the book, the strong-but-silent Bobby's interior monologues gave him a semblance of an inner life, but Cunningham's Cliff's Notes adaptation shrinks the character to a monosyllabic man-child with a puppy-dog stare." — Village Voice
Posted Jul 20, 2004
36% Touch of Pink (2004) " Just imagine all the screwball possibilities -- they're squandered here." — Village Voice
Posted Jul 13, 2004
45% My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres) (2002) " Leonor Watling ... plays the spectacularly neurotic middle daughter with dizzying abandon and single-handedly saves the day." — Village Voice
Posted May 18, 2004
16% Twist (2004) " You know things are bad when the most interesting character, the menacing brute Bill Sykes, is never heard or seen on-screen." — Village Voice
Posted May 18, 2004
53% Bulgarian Lovers (2003) " We'd gladly give ourselves over to the literate if chatty script and the generous helpings of Bulgarian beefcake, but our interest flags the moment Biba puts his clothes back on." — Village Voice
Posted Apr 27, 2004
64% 13 Going on 30 (2004) " The thirtysomething in me was all, gag me with a spoon, but the kid in me was like, this movie's rad to the max." — Village Voice
Posted Apr 22, 2004
54% Gypsy 83 (2001) " A surprisingly pragmatic take on the joys and perils of diva worship." — Village Voice
Posted Apr 13, 2004
31% Mil Nubes de Paz Cercan el Cielo, Amor, Jamás Acabarás de ser Amor (A Thousand Clouds of Peace) (2004) " All the stylistic flourishes can't hide the lack of an actual plot, character development, or point." — Village Voice
Posted Apr 13, 2004
1% Twisted (2004) " A suspense thriller without thrills or suspense." — Village Voice
Posted Mar 9, 2004
0% High Times' Potluck (2003) " The movie's more egregious buzzkills -- hazy plot, jarring non sequiturs, pointless pothead-celebrity cameos -- defy even herbally enhanced viewing." — Village Voice
Posted Oct 21, 2003
50% Flesh for the Beast (2003) " It's all gleefully over the top, but neither particularly campy nor scary." — Village Voice
Posted Oct 8, 2003
44% Friends and Family (2001) " First-timer Coury's fast pace can't outrun Joseph Triebwasser's predictable script, saddled with mobster clichés and queer stereotypes." — Village Voice
Posted Sep 30, 2003
8% Emerald Cowboy (2003) " Muddled script and leaden acting." — Village Voice
