0/4 15% Hounddog (2008) "The whole distasteful mess is sunk up to its neck in a brew of Southern Gothic atmosphere and hocus-pocus sentimentality. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 31, 2008
2.5/4 74% A Man Named Pearl (2008) "In its own modest fashion, the film does capture a sense of the intuitive craftsmanship, pride and determination that drive the self-taught artist. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 18, 2008
4/4 93% Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story (2008) "Boogie Man has an awful lot to say about where America finds itself at the 2008 moment of decision. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 17, 2008
3/4 90% Le fils de l'├ępicier (The Grocer's Son) (2008) "The quiet, patient soulfulness of the film, which Guirado co-wrote with Florence Vignon, lingers. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 5, 2008
3/4 96% Chop Shop (2008) "In this clear-eyed, quietly absorbing film, director Ramin Bahrani opens up a wedge of Third World America that operates, all but invisibly, in plain sight. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 27, 2008
3/4 79% The Bank Job (2008) "The movie plunges into this rank, choppy water and churns through it with a busily whirring story line and clear sense of purpose. The ride becomes its own satisfying reward, complete with the bumps and lurches along the way. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Mar 7, 2008
2.5/4 74% The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007) "It all plays out as you know it must, right down to [Brian] Cox's narrative revelation at the end, but that doesn't diminish the sense of satisfaction this gratifying family entertainment delivers. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Dec 25, 2007
2/4 86% Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) "Stylized but spasmodic, this Sweeney seems more interested in distancing than captivating an audience. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Dec 21, 2007
2/4 24% Fierce People (2005) "There are lots of potent things floating around in it -- sexual initiation, drugs, fantasy-land wealth, brute violence, primitive rituals, Diane Lane and Donald Sutherland -- but the mix just sits there without producing any notable reactions. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 21, 2007
2/4 13% Mr. Woodcock (2007) "This film apparently sat around for a few years before being released. It's unlikely to make waves now, but Thornton and Scott do set off a few entertaining ripples. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 14, 2007
3/4 100% Live-In Maid (2007) "Live-In Maid is a modest chamber piece enriched by its affecting human harmonies and overtones. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 31, 2007
1.5/4 20% Death Sentence (2007) "Blunt, bloody and far too busy with its sledgehammer plot and mighty gunplay to waste time on the main character's inner life, Death Sentence is a baseline entertainment. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 31, 2007
4/4 98% The Devil Came on Horseback (2007) "An exceptionally powerful film driven by contradictory forces. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 24, 2007
3/4 74% La Vie en Rose (La Mome) (2007) "La Vie en Rose is a life seen through a glass tinted darkly, with Cotillard glittering fiercely before the light goes out. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 8, 2007
3/4 70% P.O.V. (2006) "Wrestling With Angels is a canny piece of filmmaking, sure to absorb both audiences familiar with Kushner's plays and those who know little or nothing about him. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Dec 1, 2006
2/4 60% Favela Rising (2005) "... an uneven, spasmodic film. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 13, 2006

Posted Jun 16, 2006

Posted Nov 4, 2005
No Score Yet The Stranger Beside Me (2003) San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Apr 30, 2005
4/4 93% Hearts & Minds (2009) "The unnerving brilliance of the film owes to the director's skill at assembling information and allowing it to speak for itself. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 24, 2004
1/4 53% A Dirty Shame (2004) "More catalog than comedy, a checklist of erotically twisted dysfunctions strung together to fill 89 minutes of chirpy, stylized screen time. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 24, 2004
2/4 37% Standard Time (Anything But Love) (2002) "This stylized romantic comedy offers limited, largely synthetic rewards. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Nov 14, 2003
2/4 44% Luther (2003) "For all its scope and detail, Luther fails to convey the sense of history moved by a compelling individual. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 26, 2003
84% Ni na bian ji dian (What Time Is It Over There?) (2001) "The weight of the film's opaque, numbingly studied details ... is oppressive. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Feb 4, 2002
2/4 57% The Underneath (1995) "The film may turn out to have been more of a stylistic adventure for the director than for an audience. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
