80% The Cobweb (1955) "With its usual twist, it's surprising that The Cobweb hasn't become a cult classic. This '50's studio picture combines the ever popular Hollywood topic of mental illness with interior decorating." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
Posted Mar 11, 2008
83% Real Women Have Curves (2002) "One of the best things about "Real Women" is exactly that %u2013 the real sized women (and men) who fill out this endearing coming-of-age story with a physical and emotional robustness that puts the Hollywood size-three's to shame. " ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)

34% What the Bleep Do We Know!? (2004) "Overall the talking heads do a great job - as in "How Quantum Physics Can Change YOUR Life!" The same can't be said for the storyline, which leaves much to be desired." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)

97% Capturing the Friedmans (2003) "Some would say that it's 'Schadenfreude,' a fascination with disaster, that keeps us watching...But this film provides rare insight into the failure of a American family..." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
Posted Nov 11, 2003
94% Southern Comfort (2001) "Films like Southern Comfort do what even legislation cannot: they seep into our consciousness, and work their way into our collective growth until the establishment and mainstream society finally relent and expand their viewpoint of what constitutes human" ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
Posted Mar 28, 2003
96% Promises (2002) "What emerges is an unsettling picture of childhood innocence combined with indoctrinated prejudice. Promises is a compelling piece that demonstrates just how well children can be trained to live out and carry on their parents' anguish." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)

64% All My Loved Ones (2000) "Jirí Hubac's script is a gem. His characters are engaging, intimate and the dialogue is realistic and greatly moving. The scope of the Silberstein family is large and we grow attached to their lives, full of strength, warmth and vitality.." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)

88% The Komediant (2000) "... a light, yet engrossing piece. Lux, now in her eighties, does a great combination act as narrator, Jewish grandmother and subject - taking us through a film that is part biography, part entertainment and part history." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
Posted Nov 30, 2002
90% Aimée & Jaguar (2000) "...a rich melange of tumultous and sensual events. The story, acting, direction, set design and costuming fluidly combine to give a passionate portrait of living and loving on the edge of despair in a place and time where there was no tomorrow." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
Posted Nov 30, 2002
97% The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg (2000) "It is the quintessential version of the story of the classic mythic hero, one who begins as underdog without a chance, and faces insurmountable challenges and hurdles to become a champion, doing it all with grace, grit and style." ‐ Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
