47% My Blueberry Nights (2007) " Right from the beginning, there's a discomforting sense of banality blanketing the film: the journey, the pie motif, the faith in "new beginnings."" — FilmStew.com
Posted Apr 4, 2008
91% There Will Be Blood (2007) " More technically marvelous than Citizen Kane; more epic than Treasure of the Sierra Madre; more thrilling than any Malick film (yes, even Badlands)." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jan 3, 2008
83% Atonement (2007) " Champions of the novel who oppose the imbalanced adaptation will find no wrongdoing with the look of the film." — FilmStew.com
Posted Dec 6, 2007
77% I'm Not There (2007) " Forget the six impersonations of Bob Dylan. Ultimately, I'm Not There is all about Todd Haynes trying to be Jean-Luc Godard." — FilmStew.com
Posted Nov 21, 2007
68% The Darjeeling Limited (2007) " Each scene feels like its own little Hotel Chevalier, contrived for the mere purpose of seduction and nothing more." — FilmStew.com
Posted Oct 5, 2007
27% Evening (2007) " Vanessa Redgrave pursuing a poorly CGI-ed butterfly, with this incredibly idiotic look on her face, reminded me of a time I saw a retarded dog chasing a tree." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jun 28, 2007
96% Pan's Labyrinth (2006) " The only part where Pan errs is in its marketing, via a top-of-the-poster blurb that proclaims it a "fairy tale for grown-ups."" — FilmStew.com
Posted Dec 28, 2006
72% Inland Empire (2006) " She's a wife in the suburbs. She's a whore. She's a damsel in distress. She's everything but an actress." — FilmStew.com
Posted Dec 15, 2006
69% Babel (2006) " The ending is cowardly, mawkishly idealistic and, worst of all, panders to the upbeat-ending demands of Hollywood (Babel is the largest financed Iñárritu film)." — FilmStew.com
Posted Oct 27, 2006
80% Little Children (2006) " As a husband obsessed with porn, Gregg Edelman enacts one of the more interesting instances of masturbation in the history of the cinema." — FilmStew.com
Posted Oct 12, 2006
71% The Science of Sleep (2006) " The most definitive, most expressive, most imaginative, most thorough, most beautiful cinematic cogitation of romance, ever. And a big middle finger to everyone who disagrees." — FilmStew.com
Posted Sep 22, 2006
32% The Black Dahlia (2006) " If you've heard anything about this movie, from the floating film festival persiflage to the test and press screening whispers, you know one thing: it climaxes strangely." — FilmStew.com
Posted Sep 14, 2006
69% Hollywoodland (2006) " Director Allen Coulter's vision does the real Hollywood of that time justice, bequeathing a gauche garishness to the landscape and a guttural voice to the interiors." — FilmStew.com
Posted Sep 8, 2006
74% The Illusionist (2006) " Even when you feel the story slipping - which does occur halfway through - Burger rips your eyes away from any possible digressions and averts them back to the movie." — FilmStew.com
Posted Aug 24, 2006
40% Scoop (2006) " One thing is for sure: Scarlett Johansson has never been worse. And yes, that means worse than The Island." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jul 27, 2006
88% Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006) " I'm not a scientist; I'm not an activist; I'm not a super liberal or a super conservative or political really in any absurd way. I'm a film critic." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jun 28, 2006
81% A Prairie Home Companion (2006) " Instead of giving us something forceful or poignant, Altman seems to prefer a sort of objective curtain, shrouding the story and the characters." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jun 9, 2006
25% Peaceful Warrior (2006) " While speaking with Millman recently about Peaceful Warrior, the author confirmed that my Chicken Soup Theory had severely plagued the many versions of script." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jun 1, 2006
56% The King (2006) " Let's get one thing straight: I do not like Gael Garcia Bernal." — FilmStew.com
Posted May 19, 2006
80% Brick (2006) " Forget the media-saturated affectations that surrounded Brokeback Mountain and Crash. The real vicious truth is the state of the American teenager." — FilmStew.com
Posted Mar 31, 2006
90% Duck Season (Temporada de patos) (2006) " Not even half a year since Baumbach's gem The Squid and the Whale, another film has emerged conveying similar themes of domestic discomfort and disenchantment." — FilmStew.com
Posted Mar 15, 2006
31% Waiting (2005) " McKittrick neglects to realize that his target audience (males, ages 18-25) presumably aren't interested in seeing or hearing about the male genitalia at any time..." — FilmStew.com
Posted Feb 7, 2006
46% Hoodwinked (2005) " Certainly a nobler attempt in the animated feature genre than the likes of Robots, Shark Tale and Chicken Little. " — FilmStew.com
Posted Jan 16, 2006
74% The Matador (2006) " For a much better attempt at this kind of storytelling, make a mental note to some day check out Israeli writer-director Eytan Fox's Walk on Water." — FilmStew.com
Posted Dec 30, 2005
69% Christmas in the Clouds (2005) " While it's understandable some might appreciate Christmas in the Clouds merely for what it attempts to be, it's inexplicable to extol the film on that basis alone." — FilmStew.com
Posted Dec 23, 2005
72% Syriana (2005) " The standout of this already brilliant bunch of actors is Alexander Siddig, who before this starred in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." — FilmStew.com
Posted Nov 30, 2005
46% The Ice Harvest (2005) " A hodgepodge of uninspired acting, unfocused thematic intentions and flawed storytelling." — FilmStew.com
Posted Nov 22, 2005
22% I Love Your Work (2005) " You know you're in trouble when a movie arrives in theatres in the fall of 2005 right after its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in the fall of 2003." — FilmStew.com
Posted Nov 3, 2005
49% The Dying Gaul (2005) " It's a very poor man's version of Closer, with four characters chopped down to three, and Peter Sarsgaard and Campbell Scott standing in for Clive Owen and Jude Law." — FilmStew.com
Posted Nov 3, 2005
93% Good Night, And Good Luck (2005) " Stylistically, Good Night, and Good Luck is a tough film to watch. Thematically, it's a must-see fall offering." — FilmStew.com
Posted Oct 6, 2005
90% Capote (2005) " While much of the action is subtle, the impact is as searing and visceral as any film currently in theaters." — FilmStew.com
Posted Oct 3, 2005
53% An Unfinished Life (2005) " The problem with An Unfinished Life is it tries too hard to be the equivalent of Million Dollar Baby, notwithstanding the fact that it was actually made before Clint's opus." — FilmStew.com
Posted Sep 13, 2005
11% The Man (2005) " The stunts are shamefully executed and lack any depth or significance. The camera angles amount to some of the most uninspiring cinematography in recent years." — FilmStew.com
Posted Sep 9, 2005
85% 2046 (2005) " The camera achieves striking beauty... Each smile, each tear, each lit cigarette achieves a sort of luminescent stature unmatched by even Wong's previous films." — FilmStew.com
Posted Aug 5, 2005
73% Sky High (2005) " Although it aims for Spy Kids and The Incredibles territory, this family entertainment is strictly for those too young to attend the titular institution." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jul 28, 2005
53% The Devil's Rejects (2005) " All told, it's fair to say The Devil's Rejects is one of the most disappointing films of the year thus far." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jul 21, 2005
77% The Beautiful Country (2005) " Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland, possibly sacrificing any hope for financial success, ensures that the film proceeds proportional to the speed of a real-life journey." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jul 20, 2005
98% Murderball (2005) " The level of humanity and truth in Murderball are more breathtaking than any summer-blockbuster special effects." — FilmStew.com
Posted Jul 10, 2005
59% The Talent Given Us (2004) " As a sheer comedy, The Talent Given Us is head and shoulders above most if not all comedies of 2005 thus far." — FilmStew.com
