77% Plata quemada (Burnt Money) (2001) " Piñeyro's solution for every predictable plot advancement and character relationship is a lot of frantic arm-waving, as though to insist, 'But these gangsters are gay!'" — Film Journal International

44% Lisa Picard is Famous (2001) " Proves yet again, to believers in documentrary grit and spontaneity, that nothing improves realism like elegance." — Film Journal International
Posted Aug 20, 2001
77% Our Lady of the Assassins (2001) " Schroeder assays his subject rather than assails the viewer, delivering the city in creamy, beautifully fading browns." — Film Journal International
Posted Jul 30, 2001

Posted Jul 3, 2001
69% Thomas in Love (Thomas est amoureux) (2000) " Creates an entire futuristic world without, seemingly, ever changing the camera set-up." — Film Journal International

Posted Jun 1, 2001

Posted May 30, 2001

Posted May 3, 2001

Posted Feb 7, 2001
62% The Claim (2000) " A little like enjoying the work of the best student of a great painter. All in all, you would probably like to go back to seeing the previous work." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 7, 2001
52% Two Girls and a Guy (1998) " The irrepressible Downey seems almost born to play the role of this slippery eel, and both Graham and Wagner ease comfortably into their roles." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
68% Love is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon (1998) " Looking through a color art book on Bacon actually would make an appropriate substitute to watching the film." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
66% Oscar and Lucinda (1997) " Prettiness, yoked to stirring melodramatic material, is simply overburdened with more than it can deliver." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
24% Wirey Spindell (1999) " What is appallingly lacking in the film is recognizing the possibility that this person's life might be one big bundle of irresponsibility." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
65% The Governess (1998) " Goldbacher, in her first feature, has tied together many ideas about photography, dreams and love, and presented them both fairly and exquisitely." — Film Journal International

Posted Jan 1, 2000
60% Six-String Samurai (1998) Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
77% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) " The elegance and spontaneity dazzle and enliven, and the flattening out of space and emotion guarantee the film as a provocation to the Hollywood game and a statement of its maker's independence." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
62% Chinese Box (1998) " Wang is moving toward a clearer objectivity." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
41% Agnes Browne (1999) " Huston's skill at evoking public conduct naturally and easily--she lived part of her childhood in Dublin--makes Agnes Browne succeed." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
73% La sindrome di Stendhal (The Stendhal Syndrome) (1996) " Syndrome's bloody, flipped-out rapes may offend the politically correct, but its underlying concept is gripping." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
84% The War Zone (1999) " However emotionally appalling and severe, the directorial debut of Tim Roth counters its despair with quiet beauty and takes brave insights into a dysfunctional family." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
86% Une liaison pornographique (An Affair of Love) (A Pornographic Affair) (1999) " In a movie that bets the farm on delicate balancing, An Affair of Love comes close but doesn't quite strike the needed equilibriums." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26% Julien Donkey-Boy (1999) " The director must have wanted to impart an unfettered spontaneity to the audience. It doesn't quite happen, because of Korine's constraints as a filmmaker." — Film Journal International
