The Road (2009)

Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)

"No easy answers here, but that's exactly the point; a big ideas film that hopes to rouse the audience into social change." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Moon (2009)

"Clearly inspired by the great science fiction films of the last century, Moon still manages to be awe-inspiring and strikingly original in its own right." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Stone Bros (2009)

The Girlfriend Experience (2009)

"The rich client characters nearly ruin it, but the leading lady manages to shoulder the weight of this short but sharp effort from a fascinating filmmaker." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

The Age of Stupid (2009)

"By speaking directly to the disaffected and disinterested, its light tone successfully disguises an intent that could not be more serious or more urgent, which is no small feat." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Tyson (2009)

"Brutally honest, Tyson offers one perspective on the life of the boxer - his own. This intimate look is enough to carry the film through its fascinating portrait of the fallen hero." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Rudo y Cursi (2009)

"First time director Carlos Cuaron successfully mixes touching comedy with biting social realism." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts (2008)

"Shot on a tight budget and a tighter calendar, the film offers a cinematic style which borders on verite in approach and execution." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Choke (2008)

"Slighter and tighter than its blockbuster cousin, shot in the neighbourhood of just five percent of its predecessor's budget." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Dominick Dunne: After the Party (2008)

"An indelible vision of a compromised, peculiar man." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 23, 2008

Eagle Eye (2008)

"The film is probably twenty minutes too long, and can't seem to decide if its techno-philic or -phobic, but is an otherwise compelling and cogent performance piece for LaBeouf and company." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Oct 2, 2008

Son of Rambow (2007)

"Waffles between heart-on-its-sleeve candor and winking self-awareness." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Posted Sep 4, 2008

The Happening (2008)

"While hardly his worst work, this film is so far off his high water mark that it begs the question of whether M. Night Shyamalan will ever truly return." ‐ FILMINK (Australia)
