4/5 75% Greenberg (2010) " Greenberg only slightly misses the top flight by settling for too weak a foil." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 17, 2010
3/6 50% Kassim the Dream (2009) " Fueled by the nervous energy of its irrepressible subject, Kassim the Dream is a lively and colorful treatment of what's thus far been a remarkable life." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 3, 2009
3/6 80% An Unlikely Weapon (2008) " The film feels padded even at 85 minutes, but it does effectively bring home the extent to which the infamous image continued to haunt the shutterbug, even decades later." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 8, 2009
1/6 63% Wherever You Are (Lifelines) (2008) " Most of the movie is merely excruciating, until a late revelation elevates it into the realm of the sublimely ludicrous." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 1, 2009
3/6 64% The Cake Eaters (2007) " Loaded with potentially maudlin material, Mary Stuart Masterson's directorial debut turns out to be an economical, affecting slice of small-town naturalism." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 11, 2009
4/6 84% Medicine for Melancholy (2008) " Nothing if not timely, Medicine for Melancholy argues cogently against the notion of a postracial America. It's easy to imagine how a film like this might look different in four or eight years, but it's even easier to imagine why it wouldn't." — Time Out New York
Posted Jan 29, 2009
3/6 50% Dealing and Wheeling in Small Arms (2006) " The apparent intent is to inform the public about the evils associated with the small-arms trade, but Dealing lacks the big-picture political grounding of Hubert Sauper's terrific 2004 documentary, Darwin's Nightmare." — Time Out
Posted Jan 21, 2009
5/6 69% Fugitive Pieces (2008) " Nuanced, scrupulous and powerful..." — Time Out Sydney
Posted Nov 19, 2008
3/6 50% Choking Man (2007) Time Out New York
Posted Nov 13, 2008
2/6 79% Flow: For Love of Water (2008) " Far too much of the film indulges in the sort of shrill alarmism that gives environmentalism a bad name." — Time Out New York
Posted Oct 9, 2008
4/6 100% Delwende (2005) " Delwende bears a passing resemblance to the great Senegalese director Ousmane Sembene's 2004 swan song, Moolaadé, in its deliberate pacing, lightly stylized performances and strong feel for the rhythms of contemporary village life." — Time Out New York
Posted Oct 8, 2008
4/6 92% Obscene (2008) " Filled with reminiscence and laughter, this lively and largely adoring documentary looks back on the life and work of Barney Rosset, best known as the longtime owner of Grove Press." — Time Out New York
Posted Sep 24, 2008
4/6 79% A Thousand Years of Good Prayers (2008) " Both culturally specific and achingly universal, Wayne Wang's A Thousand Years of Good Prayers contemplates the ravages of time and distance -- physical, emotional and cultural -- on a parent-child relationship." — Time Out New York
Posted Sep 17, 2008
4/6 91% August Evening (2007) " August Evening succeeds as both intimate human drama and a probing exploration of the nature of family." — Time Out New York
Posted Sep 4, 2008
4/6 73% Animation Show 4 " The fourth collection of animated shorts compiled by the indispensable Mike Judge is typically funny and violent -- usually both at once." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 24, 2008
3/6 45% Take (2008) " Refreshingly ambitious and thoughtfully constructed." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 16, 2008
2/6 39% Full Grown Men (2008) " Wears a bit thin even at its brief length." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 26, 2008
1/6 39% Finding Amanda (2008) " Opening with a scene from a bad sitcom that turns out to be indistinguishable from the rest of the movie, Finding Amanda limps before it's even out of the gate." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 26, 2008
4/6 86% Kráska v Nesnázích (Beauty in Trouble) (2006) " Beauty in Trouble is a fairly conventional story about the conflicting pulls of sexual dependency and financial security, but the movie is lifted out of the ordinary by Schmitzer's turn as the grandfather from hell." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 11, 2008
2/6 72% And When Did You Last See Your Father? (When Did You Last See Your Father?) (2008) " The dynamics are overfamiliar and the whole movie feels vaguely punitive, an exercise in human misery that's not improved by director Anand Tucker's rote tear-jerking." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 5, 2008
3/6 56% Bab'Aziz - The Prince That Contemplated His Soul (2008) " The movie never gains much narrative momentum and the religious elements remain a bit obscure to the uninitiated, but the fine Sufi music and skillfully crafted images make for pleasant-enough viewing." — Time Out New York
Posted May 29, 2008
4/6 95% Hofshat Kaits (My Father My Lord) (2008) " The movie, in its best moments, suggests a Haredi version of Terence Davies's 1988 masterpiece, Distant Voices, Still Lives." — Time Out New York
Posted May 14, 2008
4/6 69% Fugitive Pieces (2008) " Nuanced, scrupulous and powerful." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 30, 2008
4/6 95% Without the King (2007) " Director Michael Skolnik gained extraordinary access to both Swaziland's royal family and its political underground, and delivers an unflinching portrait of a country where life expectancy is the shortest in the world." — Time Out New York
