Air Racers 3D (2012)

"Shot mostly at the Reno Championship races, this rather superficial documentary was completed before last year's race in which 12 people were killed in a horrendous accident. The aerial photography excels, but the script disappoints as a minor puff piece." Film Journal International

Margin Call (2011)

"An investment firm facing extinction in the 2008 fiscal crisis has less than a day to navigate its inevitable crash. Writer-director J.C. Chandor's debut feature is as powerful as it is topical." Film Journal International

American Violet (2009)

"Based on the true story of a racist raid in rural Texas during the 2000 Presidential election, American Violet suffers from a routine script and flat direction." Film Journal International

Disaster Movie (2008)

"The "jokes" are limp and pathetic or stillborn, timing is ignored, performances are a not-so-giddy mug-fest. Audiences are left wondering when the freshman cast is going to learn the rudiments of performing." Film Journal International

Fraude: México 2006 (Stolen) (2008)

"This heartfelt but one-sided look at the narrowly contested 2006 Mexican presidential election is technically sloppy but eerily reminiscent of the 2004 American presidential election." Film Journal International

Independent Lens (2006)

Things We Lost in the Fire (2007)
