2.5/5 67% 200 Motels (1971) "200 Motels has no particular focal point, being principally an anthology of poor jokes and spectacular audio-visual effects, a few of which might expand the mind, but all of which, taken together, are like an overdose of Novocain. " ‐ New York Times

2/5 No Score Yet Fish Hawk (2006) "It's not quite a nature film, but it's not strong enough to be classified as an adventure. It's a benign, almost restful movie whose end effect may well be deep sleep. " ‐ New York Times
