Posted Jan 22, 2013
85% Sightseers (2013) " Very British blend of quirky character-comedy and homicidal violence has all the makings of a midnight-movie cult classic." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 14, 2013
60% Here and There (2013) " Award-winning examination of migrant labor would have worked better as a documentary." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 14, 2013

Posted Oct 22, 2012
35% Passion (2013) " Remaking Alain Corneau's 2010 French noir Love Crime proves less a comeback for De Palma and more what economists call a 'dead cat bounce.'" — Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 7, 2012
—— Fogo " A superb calling-card for the skills of cinematographer Diego García, hour-long docu-fiction hybrid Fogo is otherwise austere high-art cinema of the most exquisitely patience-sapping kind." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 29, 2012
—— Hold Back " Brisk and brash, the latest twist on well-worn Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story themes has an irresistibly youthful zest that easily transcends and justifies the rough edges of its unvarnished approach. " — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 24, 2012
87% Trashed (2012) " While its techniques are manipulative -- it's certainly no margin-call to say that Vangelis's two-dimensional score barely lets up from start to finish -- the picture ultimately swerves pitfalls of hectoring preachiness." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 24, 2012
—— Villegas " When the music stops and the dialogue has to carry the burden of character and narrative development, Villegas is a little too restrained and laid-back to ever properly engage us with the cousins or their volatile, decades-old relationship." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 22, 2012

Posted May 21, 2012

Posted May 21, 2012
81% In Another Country (2013) " It is - for all its charms, and despite Hong's trademark formal experimentation -- ultimately rather lightweight stuff." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 21, 2012
73% Augustine (2013) " Overall, this is a handsomely-mounted period picture which transcends the stuffiness of costume-drama with sufficient aplomb..." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 20, 2012
—— Der Müll im Garten Eden (Garbage in the Garden of Eden) " Informative, ire-stoking but formally conventional..." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 19, 2012
