Student (2013)

"Kazakh cinema's stalwart auteur Darzhan Omirbaev adapts Crime and Punishment to modern-day Almaty, but with little to say beyond the obvious." ‐ Slant Magazine

Khyi rgan (Old Dog) (2011)

"Minimalist in its aesthetics and soundtrack, quiet and deliberate in its plot, but nonetheless familiar--endearing and a vital addition to the small but growing Tibetan cinema" ‐ Slant Magazine

The Painting (2013)

"The film's aesthetic employs expressionism, realism, and cubism, but the morality plays are layered on as thickly and haphazardly as a toddler's finger painting." ‐ Slant Magazine

Love Is All You Need (2013)

"At times it seems as if Susanne Bier set out to create some kind of absurdist comedy, but lost her nerve somewhere along the way. " ‐ Slant Magazine

Bert Stern: Original Madman (2013)

"Rote, rushed, and utterly uninterested in the power of Stern as an innovator of image, making it effectively the opposite of the output of the artist it attempts to document." ‐ Slant Magazine

From Up On Poppy Hill (2013)

"The story arc is somewhat facile, and its lesson about preserving history instead of demolishing it to make way for new, shiny things is too obvious." ‐ Slant Magazine

11 Flowers (2013)

"Because of its choice in subjectivity, and despite the film's historical context, 11 Flowers firmly elevates the experience of the personal over the political." ‐ Slant Magazine

A Bottle in the Gaza Sea (2013)

"The film obviously can't resolve the conflict between Palestine and Israel, but the resolution to the story's arc feels nonetheless forced and misplaced." ‐ Slant Magazine

Noordzee, Texas (North Sea Texas) (2012)

"The film succeeds in creating a dense atmospheric feel and avoids generic tropes, but it does so somewhat at the neglect of its characters and narrative." ‐ Slant Magazine
