2.5/4 83% Animals (2015) "This kind of movie can boost the fortunes of little-known actors, and it should do that for Dastmalchian and Shaw. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted May 15, 2015
89% Buzzard (2015) "It only takes a few minutes of watching Buzzard to suspect there's a stubbornly original filmmaker on the scene -- namely Michigan writer/director Joel Potrykus, whose second feature this is. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/4 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) "Along with its credible stars, that's enough to predict that Fault is going to find its target audience, big time. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jan 6, 2015
86% Top Five (2014) "It's much less savvy than his stand-up observations. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015
98% Citizenfour (2014) "[An] absorbing character study. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015
95% Snowpiercer (2014) "The political allegory would be ham-handed indeed if it were being served up in a more serious context, but the film's zany pulp approach means Bong can get away with the baldness of the metaphor. Who needs plausibility anyway? " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 4, 2015
92% Birdman (2014) "Even if it doesn't live up to its festival reviews or its crazy possibilities, Birdman serves so many heady moments it qualifies as a bona fide happening. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 2, 2015
98% Boyhood (2014) "By all means, enjoy this movie for its evocation of childhood, but let's also appreciate how Linklater calls for us to reimagine how we might treat movies and childhood: less judgment, less organization, more daydreaming. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jan 2, 2015
27% Annie (2014) "The movie gets messier as it goes, but the actors are peppy and a sense of goodwill pervades. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Dec 19, 2014
54% On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter (2014) "The documentary world is full of thrilling sports videos, but few have the authentic life-and-death stakes of high speed on two wheels. The movie's distinguished pedigree sets it apart, too. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Nov 13, 2014
non-numerical 82% The Homesman (2014) "It's a Western. It has very few gunshots, a single scene with Indians, and no grand showdown, but the longer it goes, the clearer it is that Jones has got hold of something sharp about the West. " ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 6, 2014
3.5/4 75% The Boxtrolls (2014) "The voice acting is very funny and the 3D is ingenious. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Sep 24, 2014
90% The Kill Team (2014) "Is the story of The Kill Team singular? That's the unspoken question that hangs over this award-winning documentary, another artifact from the "war on terror." " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Sep 8, 2014
3/4 50% Cannibal (2014) "No, this cannibal we do not root for -- although eventually we might feel pity. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jul 31, 2014
83% As It Is In Heaven (2014) "For the most part this movie joins other recent cult studies in identifying the apocalyptic simmer that runs beneath current American culture. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jul 17, 2014
66% The Rover (2014) "Rey is dull-witted and childlike, and although Pattinson might be over-busy at times, his twitchy performance makes an effective contrast with his co-star. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Jul 7, 2014
95% Particle Fever (2014) "[The film] serves as a needed reminder of the excitement of science, a practice that need not be left exclusively to nerds. " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Apr 8, 2014
62% Dans Paris (2007) "Dans Paris is not merely allusive to the French New Wave, it's practically Tarantino-esque. " ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 14, 2013
No Score Yet 10:30 P.M. Summer (2007) "Jules Dassin's sense of craft trumps the art-cinema pretensions of 10:30 P.M. Summer " ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 5, 2013
60% Bad Milo! (2013) "It's funny, it's gross, and it has a few serious things on its mind. Is it any wonder David Cronenberg is thanked in the end credits? " ‐ Seattle Weekly
Posted Oct 4, 2013
0% RAD (1986) "Any film calling itself Rad had best be taken with a grain of salt, regardless of its subject matter. As it happens, the subject matter of Rad constitutes probably the dorkiest storyline we've seen this year. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 21, 2012
52% Grassroots (2012) "The treatment here is unabashedly on the side of the misfit idealists; it's possible Grassroots would be a better movie with a couple of grains of salt in its recipe. But its spirit feels authentic. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Jun 25, 2012
100% Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone (2011) "To hear the soaring craziness of Fishbone's "Sunless Saturday" is to wonder how such musical inspiration could possibly miss. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Dec 16, 2011
73% The Whistleblower (2011) "Whether this will get viewers interested in the subject at hand or numbed by the cruelty of it remains to be seen, but if any story deserves to generate outrage, this one certainly does. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Aug 19, 2011
62% The Blue Tooth Virgin (2009) "Playing like a junior version of an early David Mamet talkfest, this arch look at the ups and downs of struggling screenwriters has more than its share of well-landed zingers. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Oct 30, 2009
98% The Life of Reilly (2007) " It doesn't pretend to be a movie, really, but it's an unexpected treat from a man who made a living out of being silly. " ‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Posted Mar 10, 2009
96% Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea (2004) "As documentary subjects go, the Salton Sea was ripe for the plucking: This man-made phenomenon is one of the weirdest stories of the West." ‐
Posted Jun 4, 2007
65% Big Eden (2001) "The dialogue crackles happily and the performances charm." ‐
Posted Jun 14, 2001

Posted May 31, 2001
68% About Adam (2000) "There's more than enough freshness of place and keenness of observation to justify this movie's existence." ‐
Posted May 3, 2001
13% Town & Country (2000) "When Charlton Heston is the funniest thing in a comedy, you've got problems." ‐
Posted Apr 26, 2001
34% The Center of the World (2001) "Everyone involved is capable of more interesting work than this." ‐
Posted Apr 20, 2001
11% Freddy Got Fingered (2001) "There is the spectacle of Green forcing things, of desperately willing something to happen when it is all too plain that nothing is happening." ‐
Posted Apr 19, 2001
81% Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) "One imagines Bridget Jones attending the film and then writing about it later in her diary, and the likelihood of her savaging the evening seems high." ‐
Posted Apr 12, 2001
11% Joe Dirt (2001) "Robbed of his usual caustic style, Spade can't work up many laughs, and the movie flops around." ‐
Posted Apr 12, 2001
31% Along Came a Spider (2001) "Potter doesn't resemble a Secret Service agent in any significant way, but so little in this movie rings true that it hardly matters." ‐
Posted Apr 5, 2001
71% Shadow Magic (2000) "It has a real sense of the wonder." ‐
Posted Apr 5, 2001
15% Tomcats (2001) "Let's leave Tomcats in the gutter where it belongs, and re-adjust the levels of cinematic hell, because Porky's just got bumped up a notch." ‐
Posted Mar 29, 2001
100% Le goût des autres (The Taste of Others) (2000) "Like an Eric Rohmer film, but with a bit more breeziness and youth to it." ‐

Posted Mar 22, 2001
96% The Dish (2001) "If it weren't so pushy about selling itself, The Dish might have been a very special movie." ‐
Posted Mar 16, 2001
19% Blow Dry (2001) "It may be possible that people who never go to the movies will stumble across Blow Dry and find it a charming way to spend an hour and a half, but the rest of us will have the ending written in our heads by the end of the first five minutes." ‐
Posted Mar 8, 2001
46% The Caveman's Valentine (2001) "Ambitious and more than a little tedious." ‐
Posted Mar 1, 2001
56% The Mexican (2001) "Deadly dull." ‐
Posted Mar 1, 2001
20% Monkeybone (2001) "There are laughs here, but Selick doesn't corral them, and the movie has no shape." ‐
Posted Feb 22, 2001
16% Sweet November (2001) "Charlize Theron has charm and skill, but no actress could survive this role, which has the gravity and verisimilitude of a sketch from a late-sixties Nancy Sinatra TV special." ‐
Posted Feb 15, 2001
39% Hannibal (2001) "More complicated, more outrageous, less controlled in every way." ‐
Posted Feb 8, 2001
62% The Claim (2000) "Seems suffocated by its sources." ‐
Posted Feb 7, 2001
10% Head over Heels (2001) "This lightweight concoction can't justify a trip out to the multiplex, unless you're a girl between the ages of 12 and 17." ‐
Posted Feb 1, 2001
17% The Wedding Planner (2001) "The film overloads itself." ‐
