100% Daughter of the Nile (Ni luo he nu er) (1987) Daughter of the Nile represents something special: the kind of modestly crafted masterpiece a director makes just before he comes into recognition of his own stature.‐ Film Comment Magazine

88% The Ornithologist (O ornitólogo) (2017) The Ornithologist, is no less attuned to the shock and awe of corporeal experience, but here the fixation is couched in an almost overpowering serenity.‐ Film Comment Magazine

96% Kaili Blues (Lu Bian Ye Can) (2016) Yet the voice resonating behind these familiar motifs is one of such dazzling originality, it's hard to emerge from this waking dream of a film without feeling the shock of the new.‐ Film Comment Magazine

74% Miles Ahead (2016) Don Cheadle's flimsily conceived Miles Davis passion project...never lingers in the mind long enough to do the music much damage...The film is undone not by its interpretation of Davis's legacy but by its caper plot.‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015) It's disappointing to watch the film fall into Behind the Music conventionality, employing a perfunctory alternation of talking heads and archival material despite the fact that so much once-rare footage can now be seen on YouTube.‐ Film Comment Magazine

81% Broken Embraces (2009) Though the film offers nothing new for the eyes, its wordiness ultimately acts as a complement rather than a drawback to Almodóvar's masterful storytelling. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

89% The Wind Rises (2014) Apart from its handcrafted visuals, which are as lovely and painstakingly precise as anything in the Ghibli canon, the film feels sapped of conflict and energy‐ Film Comment Magazine

65% August: Osage County (2013) Designed as one big, sloppy thesp-a-thon, the film adaptation of August: Osage County interprets one of the past decade's most overly hyped dramas with the conviction usually lavished on top-drawer Eugene O'Neill.‐ Film Comment Magazine

70% Ondine (2010) Things start to go awry when we realize that the film's emotional sensitivity doesn't go much deeper than its moody surfaces.‐ Film Comment Magazine

No Score Yet Spring Fever (1927) In his determination to position the film as a universal love story, Lou sacrifices the political engagement and specificity that makes the work of queer auteurs ( ... ) so valuable‐ Film Comment Magazine

No Score Yet Duo sang (A Borrowed Life) (2013) Few films have so vividly re-created the sensation of having known another human being for one's entire life, while simultaneously evoking the suspicion that all along one has loved a stranger.‐ Film Comment Magazine
