Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
100% Buzzard " Buzzard is in fact a salad of cinephilia." — Filmjourney
Posted Mar 17, 2014
92% Grzeli nateli dgeebi (In Bloom) (2014) " Like a bomb triggered to go off, In Bloom builds in the viewer's gut, a drama coiled to attack." — arts meme
Posted Mar 7, 2014
100% 7 Boxes (2014) " Certain to be one of the first titles from Paraguay to make a serious dent in the international marketplace, the pic makes a pleasurable surplus from minimal resources and plenty of ironic-comic-violent storytelling energy." — Variety
Posted Feb 6, 2014
78% Breakfast With Curtis (2013) " As unkempt, free-floating and bucolic as that Providence, R.I., abode, Colella's tale of a lad's seminal summer will win hearts and minds at Anglo and Euro fests." — Variety
Posted Dec 6, 2013
100% Approved for Adoption (2013) " The hand-drawn animation here emphasizes the directness of the hand forming the image on paper, and the film becomes the ultimate expression of what started as the mere scribblings of little boy trying to find his place in the world." — Film Comment Magazine
Posted Oct 21, 2013
94% A Band Called Death (2013) " [An] unexpectedly emotional docu on the revival of an African-American rock group that's among those to usher in punk music." — Variety
Posted Jun 20, 2013
18% I Do (2013) " The combustible possibilities surrounding a same-sex marriage involving partners of different nationalities is turned into rather tepid stuff in I Do." — Variety
Posted Jun 7, 2013
98% Call Me Kuchu (2013) " While a local filmmaker's perspective may have brought more dimensions, the coverage of events here is impressive and on the mark." — Variety

Posted Nov 28, 2012
73% Klown (2012) " Mikkel Norgaard serves up an edgy brew that skewers just about everything Danish in sight, including the Dogma style of cinema, which comes off as increasingly passe." — Variety
Posted Jul 23, 2012
38% One Day On Earth (2012) " One day on Earth proves too little and too much for One Day on Earth." — Variety
Posted Jun 15, 2012
13% Ultrasonic (2012) " Undone by tone-deaf repetitiveness and a particularly slack midsection, this debut feature by jack-of-all-trades filmmaker Rohit Colin Rao has some interesting ideas, but is unable to convincingly dramatize them." — Variety
Posted Jun 7, 2012
24% The Samaritan (2012) " If anything, this Canadian production misses a great opportunity to dig into its setting and examine the dark side of seemingly pristine Toronto, even as the script by Elan Mastai and director David Weaver labors over a mostly boilerplate storyline." — Variety

28% We the Party (2012) " The pic feels like a quickie knockoff between major projects, offering the writer-director's handsome son Mandela and other younger Van Peebles loads of screentime." — Variety
Posted Apr 4, 2012
—— Buying an Recreational Vehicle (2010) Variety
Posted Mar 29, 2012
44% Brake (2012) " Brake may not be the kind of film that Dorff's thesp character in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere is pining for, but the actor fully commits to the arduous demands of the part." — Variety

—— Iranian Taboo (2012) Variety
Posted Feb 28, 2012
82% Goon (2012) " The job of a hockey enforcer, invisible to many non-fans and even casual fans, is definitively presented here by taking the viewer into Doug's world and letting him do his thing." — Variety
Posted Feb 24, 2012
