3/4 92% Frank (2014) " Strong performances from Gleeson and Fassbender -- both deviating from their respective rom-coms and Oscar-baiting dramas -- give us a quirky film about the maddening pursuit of fame. " ‐ National Post

3/4 92% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) " In The Fake Case, Danish filmmaker Andreas Johnsen connects with Chinese artist Ai Weiwei after his 81-day solitary confinement for subversion of state power, and deftly portrays a man untrammeled by his opponents. " ‐ National Post

3/4 85% Spinning Plates (2013) " Rather than venerating the business of food, this documentary expertly points out that it is, indeed, a business and sometimes lives and livelihoods are at stake. " ‐ National Post

3/4 No Score Yet Everyday Is Like Sunday " There's an honesty and whip smart humour to the micro-budget Everyday Is Like Sunday that separates it from similar fare, and Moondi and Sloane have expertly distilled the disillusioned charm shrouding Toronto youth into snappy dialogue. " ‐ National Post

3/4 89% Informant (2013) " While Meltzer's documentary is an interesting character study, this misguided informant is never quite as compelling as you'd hope. " ‐ National Post

3/4 95% The Act Of Killing (2013) " As filming continues, the quiet brilliance behind the assignment comes to light. " ‐ National Post

2.5/4 80% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " Somehow, perhaps to the credit of the disarming Gosling and even Cooper, who perfectly delivers the hero-cop-turned-pariah, Cianfrance keeps us absorbed through three very intimate and heart-rending character studies. " ‐ National Post

2/5 83% From Up On Poppy Hill (2013) " The studio's stunning textures and vibrant details still give Poppy Hill that ethereal quality sure to mollify nostalgic Ghibli fans, but its strengths are fastidiously undone by a predictable and underwhelming plot. " ‐ National Post

2.5/5 80% Ginger & Rosa (2013) " Though Potter's metaphor of global catastrophe mirroring a personal crisis is heavy-handed, a rich cast of characters, which includes Annette Bening and Oliver Platt as doting family friends, provides some balance. " ‐ National Post
