A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III (2013)

"Anathema to a casual audience, fodder for those obsessed with the tabloid exploits of its lead, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III takes a certain fortitude or masochism to stick around for all these glances inside Charlie's mind."

The Rambler (2013)

"A mixture of unhinged brilliance, idiocy, unsettling confusion, and a whole lot of chaos."

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)

"For all those that look at the films of the golden age and chide that "they don't make them that way anymore", here's a fine example that a film can be fresh, intelligent, drawing from the past while carving out its own unique and very contemporary vision"

Afternoon Delight (2013)

"Life is full of funny little moments, full of heartbreak and sadness, and full of love. Love, happiness, and finding peace take a little time. Afternoon Delight captures these feelings in the most sincere way possible."

Bullet to the Head (2013)

Parker (2013)

"Parker's not very good. It's not worth seeing on a lark. It's probably not even worth seeing on disc. It's just a muddy mess of a thing, and the only thing that it convincingly stole was almost two hours of my life."

The Way Way Back (2013)

Broken City (2013)

"Murky, unclear, and blunt, the first sequence in Allen Hughes' Broken City proves to be representative of the movie as a whole. "

The Last Stand (2013)

"A credit to Kim Ji-woon and his collaborators... With the right audience of like-minded people THE LAST STAND could well be one of the most unabashedly fun experiences you'll have at a theatre this year."

Beware Of Mr. Baker (2012)

Marley (2012)

"Serve[s] its many audiences, doing so without succumbing to faults that so easily could have plagued the film. Well crafted, with a soundtrack that's drawn from the astounding career of its subject, MARLEY joins the pantheon of top-notch music films."

Prometheus (2012)
