T-Meter Title | Year
96% The Class (2008) Cantet almost constantly packs his frame, drawing us closer to the immediacy and at-times claustrophobic nature of the classroom environment. That the film never leaves the school grounds only enhances its non-fiction sensibility. - MUBI EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Ramchand Pakistani (2008) Though politically groundbreaking, Jabbar can't seem to escape her roots as a director of TV soap operas. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 82% Lbs. (2010) Kudos to Matthew Bonifacio for crafting an inspirational, humorous portrait of an individual grappling with an addiction that, unlike heroin or alcohol, has rarely been addressed in film. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 82% Storm (Sturm) (2009) It may sound like a simple lawyer-fights-for-righteousness tale, but this ostensible thriller is really an examination of two courageous female protagonists, both of whom find defeat at the intersection of the personal and the political. - Time Out EDIT

1/5 9% Opa! (2009) My Big Fat Greek Travelogue would be a more suitable title for this stock romantic comedy that might as well have been directed by the Hellenic tourist board. - Time Out EDIT

1/5 20% I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (2009) Beginning with the stalest of premises -- three buds and a bachelor party -- director Bob Gosse attempts to cash in on the vulgar bromance craze. - Time Out EDIT

2/5 63% Off Jackson Avenue (2009) Like a less didactic version of Crash, John-Luke Montias's multiculti, multithreaded drama forces a handful of disparate characters to converge for no purpose other than narrative closure. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 93% Yoo-hoo, Mrs. Goldberg (2009) Accurately subtitled 'The Most Famous Woman in America You Never Heard Of,' Aviva Kempner's well-intentioned portrait of Gertrude Berg continues the director's focus on unsung Jewish-American heroes. - Time Out EDIT

4/6 89% Ice People (2008) With its lack of narration and subjective distance, the film is a uniquely meditative, psychological portrait of individuals who approach scientific exploration with the passion and fervor of artists. - Time Out EDIT

2.5/4 28% Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007) At times funny, and even occasionally witty, Alvin and the Chipmunks is a lively, entertaining romp that will certainly bring smiles to the young ones this holiday season. - Premiere Magazine EDIT
