Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet The Falklands Play (2014) The film employs full details of the planning, all of which manage, remarkably, to produce something of the feelings of preparations for the D-Day landings-no small testament to the urgency of the situation the film succeeds in bringing to life.‐ Wall Street Journal

100% To Walk Invisible: The Bronte Sister (2017) To Walk Invisible presents the Brontë sisters as they've never quite been seen before.‐ Wall Street Journal

100% Cries From Syria (2017) Cries From Syria is an eloquent, agitating and profoundly moving chronicle of that war and its participants.‐ Wall Street Journal

100% The Witness for the Prosecution (2016) In its character, depth and startling bitterness, this adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic short story bears small resemblance to its best-known film version.‐ Wall Street Journal

80% By Sidney Lumet (2016) [Lumet] had come to understand how some in Hollywood had ended up cooperating with investigators and giving them names. A characteristically blunt assessment of reality-a kind of which this portrait is full, as it is of warmth and wit.‐ Wall Street Journal

No Score Yet Pearl Harbor - USS Oklahoma - The Final Story (2016) The documentary captures, tellingly, the thinking of the Japanese command, the jubilation of the attackers. ‐ Wall Street Journal

85% Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You (2016) This is a story of a life of enormous fulfillment-eloquently told and openhearted as related by the subject himself, now in his early 90s, who knows, as he reveals, what to value in life. ‐ Wall Street Journal

100% Trapped (2016) The film's most compelling argument emerges from interviews with women who now struggle to find abortion services, largely poor women who've had to travel long distances-trips they could scarcely afford-to find a clinic that was open.‐ Wall Street Journal

89% Bessie (2015) It takes just the first few raunchy and emotionally searing minutes of "Bessie" to grasp why Queen Latifah-its star and one of its producers-viewed this story of Bessie Smith's life and career as a labor of love, or more precisely, passion. ‐ Wall Street Journal

81% Mitt (2014) Given the filmmaker's unrestricted access to Mitt Romney through both presidential campaigns, Greg Whiteley's Mitt is an unsurprisingly warm portrait.‐ Wall Street Journal

No Score Yet JFK: The Smoking Gun (2013) [The] film finds its focus in ballistics talk, much of it intriguing, and ballistics tests. Better yet, it manages to maintain a certain suspense‐ Wall Street Journal

100% Life According To Sam (2013) The story of these efforts, which have produced promising results, is itself remarkable, though nothing in this documentary equals the portrait of the unforgettable son they produced.‐ Wall Street Journal

80% Glickman (2013) Not many documentaries-not many, certainly, devoted to sports figures-can claim to bring their subjects to life so fully.‐ Wall Street Journal

90% Scott Turow's Innocent (2011) A rare treat a bit like finding strawberries in a wintry wood.‐ Wall Street Journal

No Score Yet Ricochet (2011) Ricochet, the second film in the TNT series, is a work of a different order-substantial, atmospheric, a lure to lovers of mystery novels, though one undermined in the end by its predictable plot contortions. ‐ Wall Street Journal

55% Clear History (2013) A wonderfully diverting film with Mr. David at his abrasive best.‐ Wall Street Journal

92% Our Nixon (2013) This highly personal view of the Nixon years is, for obvious reasons, a sad and wrenching one-a film that is nonetheless filled with spirit, humor and a bountiful sense of irony.‐ Wall Street Journal

96% The Crash Reel (2013) In its picture of the family constellation lies all of the film's strength, all testimony to its ambition, its capacity to fascinate with a revelation, an unexpected digression from the drama's main focus.‐ Wall Street Journal

49% Phil Spector (2013) Mr. Pacino's portrait of Spector is stunning in its guile and vitality.‐ Wall Street Journal
