Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 89% Cronos (1994) While the film's first half entices with its secrets, the second half falls into a predictable narrative that refuses to even suggest possibilities. ‐ Chicago Tribune

3.5/4 72% Crónicas (2005) [Cordero's] lens is focused on a larger ethics, on what makes human beings heroes and monsters. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Aug 25, 2005
2/4 32% November (2005) Whatever we think one minute is utterly meaningless, without connection, the next. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Aug 5, 2005
2/4 80% The Ninth Day (Der neunte Tag) (2005) A film that strives for meaning and resonance but doesn't quite work. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 18, 2005
3.5/4 61% Nina's Tragedies (2005) Nina's Tragedies is full of gentle, labyrinthian turns, sly and sweet. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Jun 3, 2005
1/4 46% Don't Move (2004) Manipulative in the extreme. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted May 13, 2005
3.5/4 83% Up and Down (Horem Pádem) (Loop the Loop) (2004) It's been a long time since a movie allowed so many diverse narratives to fold into so unexpected, unified and satisfying a story. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Mar 24, 2005
2/4 33% You I Love (Ya lyublyu tebya) (2004) To say the epilogue strains credibility is a kindness. The filmmakers seem set on a happy ending, no matter what the story itself is telling them. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Mar 10, 2005
1/4 6% Testosterone (Testosteroni) (2004) This is a movie in which things happen for no reason other than that the director wills them to happen in order for something else to happen, logic be damned. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Nov 26, 2004
3/4 77% The Machinist (2004) A moody psychological thriller with a stunning performance by Christian Bale at its core. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Nov 18, 2004
1/4 26% Anatomy of Hell (2004) A ponderous but very, very explicit exploration of gender roles and fears that frequently seems like a parody of the genre. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Nov 11, 2004
2/4 27% A Day Without a Mexican (2004) The movie in its extended version is frequently muddled, emotionally messy, a little heavy-handed and misses the real opportunity presented by the new format. ‐ Chicago Tribune
Posted Sep 16, 2004
1/4 0% National Lampoon's Gold Diggers (2004) For the most part, The Gold Diggers is not even chuckle-producing. At best, it might warm a cockle or two or provoke a bit of a smile. ‐ Chicago Tribune
