1/5 67% Grace (2009) "Paul Solet's gyno-horror flick is certainly twisted but only slightly unnerving; the movie is about as gripping as one might expect given that its infant monster is both mute and cradle-bound. " ‐ Time Out

2/5 76% Captain Abu Raed (2007) "Eager, earnest and ultimately a little too easy on the conscience, Amin Matalqa's Jordanian melodrama is social commentary with the gloss of classical Italian drama. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 12, 2009
2/5 84% Earth Days (2009) "Earth Days has a lot to say about the minor victories of the past. It's too bad that the film ends at the dawn of the 1980s -- all but ignoring the most important chapter of this ongoing saga. " ‐ Time Out

1/6 45% Fragments (2008) "The anxiety is deafening in this flimsy symphony of shattered lives, which -- like that confounding Oscar winner Crash -- confuses entropy for empathy. " ‐ Time Out

4/5 100% California Company Town (2008) "[Director] Schmitt wisely allows the images to speak loudest -- a silent, sobering portrait of what happens after the well dries up. " ‐ Time Out

3/5 92% The Way We Get By (2009) "Though Aron Gaudet's documentary never quite captures the relieved atmosphere of these homecomings, it does acknowledge the dark side of a cheery platitude: those on both sides of the divide are in need of healing. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 15, 2009
3/5 47% Death in Love (2009) "Survivor's guilt jumps a generation in Boaz Yakin's bleak family portrait, an incendiary journey back into the psychic horrors of the Holocaust. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 15, 2009
2/5 36% Local Color (2006) "The sweeping landscapes look flawless, but missing from Local Color's canvas is any nuance in its human elements. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 1, 2009
2/6 89% The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story (2009) "Directors Gregory and Jeffrey Sherman, sons of the composers, have set themselves such a furious pace in parsing the full chronology that we only skim the surface of the Poppins near-disaster. " ‐ Time Out
