T-Meter Title | Year
6/10 No Score Yet Berlin, Symphony of a Big City (Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Grosstadt) The magic of Berlin is its ability to provide an insight into the emergent qualities that make a city what it is, beyond being a mere composite of the elements within its geographical boundaries. - PopMatters EDIT

6/10 100% Manila In The Claws Of Light (Maynila: Sa mga kuko ng liwanag) (1975) A sad but beguiling film, Manila offers many more scenes that might inspire philosophical and political reflection than the few I was able to discuss here. - PopMatters EDIT

88% Female Trouble (1974) It is this reversal, the realization that the freak is an essential part of a social whole and that beauty falls into contradiction by attempting to be both normative and expressive of individuality, that Female Trouble executes in uproarious fashion. - PopMatters EDIT

100% The Crime of Monsieur Lange (Le Crime de Monsieur Lange) (1936) For a film so resolute in its efforts to portray an idealized community based on mutuality and shared concern, in the end, Le Crime de Monsieur Lange sends us careening. - PopMatters EDIT

6/10 92% Aristide and the Endless Revolution (2005) The fascinating thing about this particular documentary is that, despite its ostensible subject (the eponymous deposed president), the film engages the more important and pressing issues that underlie Aristide's presidency and his removal. - PopMatters EDIT
