NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014)

"While NOW is an echo of Spacey's hubris and chicanery, it's also an object lesson on being in charge of your career. As such, it's a doc actors shouldn't miss. "

Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014)

"It's meant to be outrageous, and it winds up stimulating in ways you wouldn't expect."

Prometheus (2012)

"'Prometheus' is not so much a prequel to Ridley Scott's 'Alien' as it is a remake. Fortunately, Scott remembers what made his unsettling 1979 classic work."

Salt of This Sea (Milh Hadha al-Bahr) (2010)

La Nana (The Maid) (2009)

"Saavedra totally embodies the role of Raquel, holed up in her disinfected cage, while Sergio Armstrong's handheld cinematography underscores the claustrophobia of her existence."

Disgrace (2008)

"Steve Jacobs' adaptation of J.M. Coetzee's Booker Prize-winning novel Disgrace fearlessly pares back the layers of post-Apartheid South Africa within the microcosm of a father/daughter relationship."

Be Kind Rewind (2008)

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007)

A Scanner Darkly (2006)

"If A Scanner Darkly doesn't match Waking Life's wonderfully fluid meditation on the nature of existence, it's still a remarkable visual experience and an involving drama -- albeit one that takes a while to wrap your head around."

Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes ()
