3/4 46% You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010) " At once a cynical examination of infidelity and a sweet love story that rewards good people, Stranger is thoroughly entertaining ... and Allen's best film since Crimes and Misdemeanors." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Oct 7, 2010
1/4 53% I'm Still Here (2010) " Since Phoenix spends half the film with his head down, mumbling and shirtless, I'm Still Here is literally (and figuratively) an exercise in navel-gazing." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 9, 2010
58% Art & Copy (2009) " Art & Copy offers an intriguing -- some might say frightening -- glimpse into the world that has prompted a generation of Americans to religiously tune into the Super Bowl just to watch those short movies that sell product." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Nov 5, 2009
1/4 43% Chandni Chowk To China (2009) " Chandni Chowk to China supposedly is the 'the first-ever Bollywood kung-fu comedy,' which makes me pray fervently that it will also be the last." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 15, 2009
4/4 100% Anita O'Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer (2007) " The incomparable songbird is finally given her due in one of the greatest music documentaries I've ever seen." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Dec 12, 2008
1.5/4 —— Garrison Keillor: The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes (2008) " The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes is an utterly pedantic TV documentary inexplicably given life on the big screen." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Oct 30, 2008
2/4 56% Bab'Aziz - The Prince That Contemplated His Soul (2008) " It is neither engaging nor enlightening." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 11, 2008
3/4 54% Explicit Ills (2009) " It's the best reflection of inner city life, and its effect on children, since Charles Burnett's 1977 drama Killer of Sheep." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 28, 2008
2.5/4 66% Brick Lane (2008) " As the plot unfolds, it becomes apparent that director Sarah Gavron also finds attractive people more sympathetic, and this is Brick Lane's undoing." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 11, 2008
3.5/4 96% Bigger, Stronger, Faster* (2008) " Bigger, Stronger, Faster* is that rare film that truly challenges its audience." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 6, 2008
0/4 20% Plumm Summer (2008) " This might be palatable if it weren't also fraught with leaden direction and horrible acting -- it's a painful thing when William Baldwin's the best actor you've got." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 25, 2008
3.5/4 —— Linas Kvällsbok (Bitter Sweetheart) (2007) " Eschewing the usual teen clichés and filled with a wonderful cast of young actors, Bitter Sweetheart is a gem whose honesty makes Juno seem positively prudish." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 17, 2008
3/4 72% Under the Same Moon (2008) " Under the Same Moon, despite some mature themes, is fine family entertainment. It is a crowd pleaser in the best sense of the word, compelling, humorous and profoundly moving." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 3, 2008
1/4 51% Nim's Island (2008) " A slapdash amalgam of competing visual and storytelling styles, bizarre acting, egregious product placement (particularly for National Geographic) and negative stereotypes." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 3, 2008
3/4 —— African Adventure: Safari in the Okavango " African Adventure 3D: Safari in the Okavango is ostensibly yet another eye-popping Imax travelogue, but much to my surprise it's also a treatise on how to make movies." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 20, 2008
2/4 77% Paranoid Park (2007) " Alex goes to school, has a girlfriend, eats junk food ... and is almost as much of a zombie as anything George A. Romero has ever conjured up. Only less appealing." — Minneapolis Star Tribune
