Posted Jun 18, 2010
4/5 62% Raavanan (Villain) (2010) " Ratnam's pace is steadfastly brisk, and his film is replete with dizzying camerawork, myriad complications, violent mayhem, broad humor, usual musical interludes, a cliffhanging climactic confrontation and a finish that strikes a note of poignancy." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 18, 2010
4/5 63% 8: The Mormon Proposition (2010) " As an exposé, there could hardly be a stronger case for ensuring and strengthening the separation of church and state -- or a stronger message to gay people as to the magnitude of the challenge to win equal rights." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 18, 2010
3.5/5 78% Behind The Burly Q (2010) " At once amusing, raucous and poignant, Leslie Zemeckis' Behind the Burly Q is the most comprehensive documentary on burlesque ever made, smoothly incorporating rare vintage stills, interviews and footage." — Baltimore Sun

Posted Feb 13, 2009
2/5 17% The Gay Bed and Breakfast of Terror (2007) " Trash can be fun but this movie is too tedious and under-inspired to be amusing." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 24, 2008
3.5/5 44% Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom (2008) " The lively, timely film plays like a soap opera on a big screen, has its awkward and uneven moments but delivers the goods." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 24, 2008

3/4 49% La Terza Madre (Mother of Tears: The Third Mother) (2007) " Although The Mother of Tears teeters on the preposterous and awkward, it is diverting and reveals that the filmmaker's signature bravura flourishes and use of sinister settings are still intact." — Los Angeles Times

—— Sadness of Sex Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 24, 2007

Posted Aug 9, 2007
3.5/5 90% Punk's Not Dead (2007) " About as in-your-face and raggedy as its subject, Dynner's film is really less of a history than a psychological profile, rooting around for the meat of what makes punk so resilient, cross-generational and communal." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 26, 2007
5/5 82% The Other Conquest (2007) " In his bravura feature debut, [Salvador] Carrasco has created nothing less than a dazzling vision of the birth of a uniquely Mexican religion born of the searing fusion of Catholic and Aztec deities." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 18, 2007

Posted Jun 14, 2007
1.5/5 —— Banished (2007) " The body count mounts as any sense of continuity to the film evaporates. There's a world-weary twist at the finish, but it hardly can be expected to offset the bloody, tedious mishmash that has preceded it." — Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 9, 2007

Posted Aug 30, 2004
4/5 100% M (1931) " This movie provides an essential point of view that needs to be seen in today's world of atrocities whose disturbing nature is only surpassed by the shallow and exploitative way they are presented to the world by the media." — eFilmCritic.com

3/5 86% Jackie Brown (1997) " The script is snappy, the characters are well defined and the final resolution is satisfactory (though lacking in any kind of twist or surprise), and had it been a good hour shorter, it would have been a sharp little caper." — eFilmCritic.com
