95% Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq (2014) " "Here, in a few minutes of black-and-white footage, are a gaze, a touch, a few steps and a look out at the audience that create an unforgettable impression. "" — culturevulture.net

91% The Great Beauty (2013) " For those of us who spend most of our time still dealing with rent and health care, it is a two-hour journey into ideas and emotions we only wish there were time to consider. That's a reason to go to the movies." — culturevulture.net

92% Farewell, My Queen (2012) " ... a moody, elegant and perceptive film that presents a three-dimensional King and Queen mired in a tornado of their own creation. " — culturevulture.net

81% Michael Jackson's This Is It (2009) " ... a concert-that-never-was film that trumps that genre because of its ultimate humanity, imperfection and lack of overproduction" — culturevulture.net

86% The Witnesses (Les Temoins) (2007) " André Téchiné is a master at taking life experiences and stripping them of sentimentality, leaving us with only the bare-bones honesty of relationships and desire." — culturevulture.net

91% Hairspray (2007) " This is born-again anti-establishmentarianism." — culturevulture.net

80% Little Children (2006) " The success Fields has with this film comes through the uncomfortable intersection between comedy, melodrama and tragedy. Oh, and romance." — culturevulture.net
Posted Apr 3, 2007
69% Babel (2006) " There is some hope, in Iñárritu's world, each of the characters may have a family and love, but this is shown to be, at best, a diversion against the real world, which is a much more intolerable, incomprehensive place." — culturevulture.net
Posted Mar 27, 2007
48% Harsh Times (2006) " A movie that seems gritty and pointless for its first third, begins to grow in meaning as the pointlessness snowballs into absurdity and then tragedy." — culturevulture.net
Posted Mar 27, 2007
91% God Grew Tired Of Us (2007) " It deflates upon arriving in the vast, familiar blandness we know as America." — culturevulture.net
Posted Mar 5, 2007
33% Sacred Stage - The Mariinsky Theater (2005) " There is old and new here, great artists, great traditions and a kind of paradoxical survival story." — culturevulture.net
Posted Nov 30, 2005
91% Ballets Russes (2005) " A moderately engaging historical document" — culturevulture.net
Posted Nov 8, 2005
80% Last Dance (2002) " A fascinating look into the creative process" — culturevulture.net

45% My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres) (2002) " The directors' attempt to go slightly high-brow comes off as fake and the heightened state of madcap craziness seems simply forced." — culturevulture.net
