Posted Sep 11, 2015
86% Tangerines (2015) "The anti-war message is not new but the film delivers it eloquently and with quiet, insistent dignity. And sadly, it's a message that's still not being heeded. " ‐ KPBS.org
Posted Sep 11, 2015

Posted Sep 11, 2015
89% A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2015) "The relentless consistency of tone and style without a conventional narrative to latch on to may grow tedious for some. But there are so many wondrous moments to savor in the film. " ‐ KPBS.org
Posted Sep 11, 2015
72% Jurassic World (2015) "Here's the deal: The dinosaurs still take our breath away but the film does not. " ‐ KPBS.org

Posted Oct 11, 2013

Posted Oct 11, 2013
96% I Am Divine (2013) "This documentary reminds us of Divine's audacious and unique impact on both film and American culture. It's also a great way to celebrate the talented actor who gave us Divine. " ‐ KPBS.org

Posted Jan 19, 2013
5/10 59% The Last Stand (2013) "The Last Stand is a respectable American debut for Kim Je-Woon but I hope he doesn't get sucked into the Hollywood mill. He's far too good a filmmaker to make strictly formula films. " ‐ KPBS.org
