Posted Mar 6, 2003
C+ 18% Love in the Time of Money (2002) " The overall fabric is hypnotic, and Mr. Mattei fosters moments of spontaneous intimacy." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 5, 2002
D+ 0% Mr. Smith Gets a Hustler (2002) " Though it pretends to expose the life of male hustlers, it's exploitive without being insightful." — Dallas Morning News

Posted Jul 25, 2002
B+ 39% Sex With Strangers (2003) " It's both degrading and strangely liberating to see people working so hard at leading lives of sexy intrigue, only to be revealed by the dispassionate Gantz brothers as ordinary, pasty lumpen." — Dallas Morning News
