B- 63% Philip Roth: Unmasked (2013) " It's great to see extensive interview footage with the relaxed and funny author, but Philip Roth: Unmasked shies away from controversy and, as a result, feels a bit sanitized." — Newsday

3/6 65% The Jane Austen Book Club (2007) " The real disappointment is the paint-by-numbers flatness of the contemporary stories and characters; it's hard to care much about Sylvia and Prudie with Elizabeth Bennett and Emma Woodhouse hovering in the wings." — Time Out New York
Posted Oct 6, 2007
3/6 31% The Good Night (2007) " The Good Night doesn't quite know where to go with this potentially rich, unsettling material." — Time Out New York
Posted Oct 6, 2007
3/6 81% Vanaja (2006) " Vanaja's narrative meanders, but the film evokes village life with stark authenticity." — Time Out New York

1/6 24% Fierce People (2005) " What a bad trip." — Time Out New York
Posted Sep 6, 2007
4/6 93% Blame It on Fidel (La Faute a Fidel) (2006) " One of those rare films that maintain unwavering fidelity to a child's view of the world." — Time Out New York
Posted Aug 2, 2007
1/6 33% Drama/Mex (2006) " All the edgy style in the world canâ(TM)t camouflage a black hole. Drama/Mex turns loose these insistently shallow characters and provides no insight into their bad behavior." — Time Out New York
Posted Jul 12, 2007
3/6 64% Vitus (2007) " The film never settles on a consistent tone: Is this a whimsical fairy tale or an earnest family drama? As Emperor Joseph once complained to Mozart: Too many notes." — Time Out New York
Posted Jun 28, 2007
4/6 27% Evening (2007) " The film never descends into the dreaded bath of sentimental kitsch." — Time Out New York

1/6 13% Miriam (2006) Time Out New York
Posted Jun 9, 2007
3/6 19% The Ex (2007) " Though Bateman rolls through the film with sly comic skill, the whole exercise seems half-baked -- a high concept and some funny gags that do not a great comedy make." — Time Out New York
Posted May 19, 2007
3/6 60% Looking for an Icon (2007) " Structured like a freewheeling crash course in media studies, Looking for an Icon offers close readings of four famous photographs, each a past winner of the World Press Photo of the Year." — Time Out New York
Posted May 10, 2007
3/6 52% Disappearances (2007) " Alas, the story descends into mystical mumbo jumbo." — Time Out New York
Posted May 10, 2007
4/6 68% The Treatment (2006) " The film works familiar territory -- the romantic lives of neurotic well-educated New Yorkers -- yet never feels stale." — Time Out New York
Posted May 5, 2007
3/6 43% In the Land of Women (2007) " The screenplay by Kasdan is soggy with earnest clichés." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 21, 2007
4/6 67% Everything's Gone Green (2007) " Appealing performances by Costanzo and Song, with comic support from Ryan's entrepreneurial parents and Ming's knife-wielding granny, guide us over the rough patches." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 14, 2007
3/6 64% Whole New Thing (2006) " ... well-intentioned but underwhelming ..." — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 7, 2007
2/6 30% The Hawk Is Dying (2006) " For performing half this film with a predatory bird perched and flapping angrily on his arm, Paul Giamatti deserves some sort of award." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 31, 2007
1/6 71% Boy Culture (2007) " The overall effect is merely narcotic." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 24, 2007
2/6 69% Adam's Apples (Adams æbler) (2007) " Adam's Apples strives for black comedy, but winds up being neither funny nor spiritually enlightening." — Time Out New York
Posted Mar 17, 2007
2/6 21% Catch and Release (2007) " Sadly lifeless." — Time Out New York
