75% Hell's Highway: The True Story of Highway Safety Films (2003) " How effective were the highway safety films in stopping accidents? Opinions differ. How effective is Hell's Highway in curing you of ever wanting to see another one? Completely." — Film Journal International
Posted Aug 6, 2003
25% Samehada otoko to momojiri onna (Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl ) (2003) " Most of the film relies on music-video velocity that can be a bit too jarring, even for a live-action cartoon." — Film Journal International
Posted Apr 22, 2003
57% The Guru (2002) " All of this makes for some very entertaining if lightweight goings-on." — Film Journal International
Posted Feb 1, 2003

Posted Jan 25, 2003

Posted Jan 1, 2000
60% Permanent Midnight (1998) " This well-told and solidly acted story of his rise and fall is not a pretty sight, but, as with a car wreck, it is riveting nevertheless. It is almost impossible to look away." — Film Journal International

Posted Jan 1, 2000
82% Love and Basketball (2000) " Epps and Lathan are terrifically appealing, each giving a complex performance that benefits greatly from the chemistry between them." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7% I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998) " Some thrills and chills are provided, but as audiences realize they've lived this Summer before, early, strong b.o. returns are also likely to die." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32% Switchback (1997) " Switchback plays as entertaining, if not quite classic, dramatic fare." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28% The Story of Us (1999) " The Story of Us does convey the joys and sorrows involved in staying together, but ultimately seems to do so with more shtick than truth." — Film Journal International

Posted Jan 1, 2000
64% Ride with the Devil (1999) " Lenthy and zigzagging narrative." — Film Journal International
Posted Jan 1, 2000
