3.5/5 55% Marie Antoinette (2006) "Is there a more perfect soundtrack to a forbidden romp between a teenage princess and Count Axel von Fersen (Dior model Jamie Dornan) than 'Kings of the Wild Frontier' by Adam & the Ants? " ‐ Austin Chronicle
Posted Oct 19, 2006
3.5/5 87% Jesus Camp (2006) "Jesus Camp doesn't trivialize or exploit its child subjects nor their spirituality; for the most part, the film maintains a patient, unobtrusive outlook from the D.A. Pennebaker school. " ‐ Austin Chronicle

Posted Aug 26, 2006
2.5/5 17% Jailbait (2004) "The stage origins are simply everywhere, but this debut feature is so fantastically acted that it inspires indulgence of its first-timers' mistakes. " ‐ Austin Chronicle

Posted Jul 15, 2006
3.5/5 73% Twelve and Holding (2006) "Twelve isn't always easy to watch. But it feels emotionally authentic -- not exploitive, not farfetchedly quirky. " ‐ Austin Chronicle
Posted Jul 8, 2006
2.5/5 81% Sketches of Frank Gehry (2006) "The film has lovely moments -- Gehry buildings can be extremely photogenic, after all -- but it doesn't sink its teeth in the way it probably should. " ‐ Austin Chronicle
Posted Jul 1, 2006
2.5/5 52% Down in the Valley (2006) "There's no depth to the story, and as the thrills start to kick in, Down in the Valley becomes a B-movie - less a modern epic Western than a two-reel oater with a cheap cliffhanger. " ‐ Austin Chronicle

Posted Apr 8, 2006
3.5/5 74% Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) (2006) "The movie isn't perfect -- Spielberg-slick, its power is sometimes dampened by melodrama that overstates its message -- but it is compelling and thought-provoking and topical as hell. " ‐ Austin Chronicle

2.5/5 19% Firewall (2006) "The filmmakers seem too committed to a PG-13 rating, so they don't take any real risks with the kids -- commendable on the one hand, but deadly to the thriller on the other. " ‐ Austin Chronicle
