"A rare pleasure." Film Threat

Loggerheads (2005)

"There's little dramatic tension in this well-acted, well-intentioned and painfully low-key tale of familial and emotional disconnection." Film Threat

Ballets Russes (2005)

"This very conventional PBS style videodoc should not viewed before operating heavy machinery. However, there's plenty to fascinate devotees of the dance." Film Threat

Thumbsucker (2005)

"A worthy addition to the growing subgenre of seventies-influenced coming of age films. Linus van Pelt would approve." Film Threat

Protocols of Zion (2005)

"It's a valuable piece, especially for younger and/or non-Jewish people who may be unaware of the issues involved." Film Threat

The Dying Gaul (2005)

"Craig Lucas's film directing debut, and it's impressive. The film never feels one bit like a stage adaptation. (I had no clue that it was based on a play until the end credits). It's also visually surefooted." Film Threat

The Upside of Anger (2005)

"It's a film without a sufficient spine." Film Threat

9 Songs (2005)

"As the story, such as it is, progresses, the relationship surrounding the lovemaking fails to generate any interest." Film Threat

Conspiracy of Silence (2004)

"While it's not particularly sophisticated filmmaking, John Deery's first feature is thoroughly engrossing, while avoiding pat answers and cheaply reassuring resolutions." Film Threat

Nicotina (2004)

"An uncertain, but also unboring, neo-noir comedy that has more than its share of gimmicks." Film Threat

The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara (2003)

"There is nothing simple about Robert McNamara and nothing simplistic about Errol Morris's involving look at him." Film Threat

Mayor of the Sunset Strip (2004)

"Mayor of the Sunset Strip is compulsory viewing for anyone with the slightest interest in rock history or the power of celebrity." Film Threat

Standard Time (Anything But Love) (2002)

"A schmaltz-laden romantic comedy peppered with a few uninteresting musical fantasy sequences." Film Threat

Buffalo Soldiers (2001)

"An outstanding American debut for Gregor Jordan." Film Threat

Ordinary Sinner (2002)

"Not exactly 'good' but -- like a TV movie you want to switch off but can't -- it's too involving to completely dismiss." Film Threat

Matewan: A Luta Final (1987)

"The wry social commentary of [Sayles'] earlier films is gone; we're in mythmaking country here." Film Threat

The Animal (2001)

"It's a great yawning void where Rob Schneider can hump a mail box and attempt to seduce a goat." Film Threat

The Fluffer (2003)

"Funny and sensitive for all its faults, The Fluffer is nevertheless unlikely to break out of the gay cinema ghetto." Film Threat

The Wicker Man (1973)

"A boon for film geeks the world over." Film Threat

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

"John Ford's final masterpiece proves that irony and sincerity are not enemies." ‐

Vertigo (1958)

"It tests our patience, but then rewards it, not only with beauty and terror, but also with an emotional sucker punch that has yet to be equaled." ‐

Sabrina (1954)

"All in all, Sabrina is an intelligent, mildly entertaining also-ran." ‐

Roman Holiday (1953)

"Director William Wyler delivers some of the most stunning black and white visions of Rome ever put on film. Considering how many eye-filling extravaganzas have been set in the eternal city, that's really saying something." ‐

Stagecoach (1939)

"The Western that, more than any other film, set the pattern for all the classic-era movie Westerns that came after." ‐

To Catch a Thief (1955)

"This enjoyable mixture of wit, low voltage intrigue and highly charged attraction is really about the appeal of its two great stars and the beauty of its seaside setting." ‐
