77% Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (2015) "We've seen many an insider doc about films destroyed by their creators' chutzpah (Overnight, Lost in La Mancha), but what's most wrenching here is McQueen's displays of vulnerability and tenderness. " ‐ Village Voice

Posted Aug 4, 2015
77% I Am Chris Farley (2015) "The movie is saccharine. The tone is set from the get-go by that lazy, obsequious title - it sounds like some bogus self-help seminar that one of Farley's characters would have smashed to smithereens. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 28, 2015

Posted Nov 4, 2014
No Score Yet Tiger Lily Road (2014) "While not as kinky, dark, or schizoid as debuting director/screenwriter Michael Medeiros intends, Tiger Lily Road succeeds on its own small, claustrophobic level. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 21, 2014

Posted Sep 23, 2014
79% Stop The Pounding Heart (2014) "Characters who might have been portrayed as Bible Belt nut-jobs come off as unconditionally loving. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 16, 2014

Posted Jul 8, 2014
13% The Moment (2014) "Viewers must work as hard as Lee to determine past from present; you may feel amnesiac yourself by film's end. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 3, 2014
32% Anna (2014) "Dorado proves nimble at chase scenes, and the ending is immensely satisfying: not impossible to predict, per se, but probably the third or fourth possible outcome you imagined. " ‐ Village Voice

Posted Mar 25, 2014
84% Rob the Mob (2014) "The stickups, while plenty funny - an Uzi firing uncontrollably can still be hilarious - lack any sense of dread or danger. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 18, 2014

Posted Dec 3, 2013
20% Cold Turkey (2013) "As a whole, Cold Turkey is too busy and offers no fresh insight on the inner hysteria of seemingly upright WASPs. The actors work hard, but their roles are mostly one-note. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2013
No Score Yet Long Island Railroad Massacre (2013) "The film registers like a more compelling episode of A&E's The First 48, complete with overwrought, ominous music and tacky re-enactments. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 12, 2013
