Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/5 79% Baghead (2008) Quote not available. ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 18, 2011
97% Ringu (Ring) (1998) Eschewing blood for a sinuous tone of Videodromic dread, Ring forces fear into every cut as a psychic telejournalist counts down the hours till a fatal visitation, while making a gung ho attempt to save her brood. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 25, 2007
73% Short Cut to Nirvana: Kumbh Mela (2004) The directors and subjects evince enough contagious ecstasy to gladden the most angst-ridden Western hearts. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 12, 2005
80% The Red Orchestra (2005) Without becoming maudlin or confessional, talking-head testimonies by former Orchestra members and their children recount just how heroic the group's treasonous flyers, broadcasts to Russia, and meeting with U.S. agents really were. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 3, 2005
33% Sexual Dependency (2003) No worse than a tinny artist's statement, but as moviemaking, it's brutally embarrassing, inexcusable. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 22, 2005
71% Schultze Gets the Blues (2005) What hints at a wacky one-note polka -- staid, retired German miner and accordion hobbyist upends his life upon hearing zydeco -- ends up an intricate, becalmed take on a soul adrift. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 15, 2005
88% Unscrewed (2003) A likable, wrinkly taint of a movie. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 8, 2005
55% Arakimentari (2004) Uncritical as the movie is, it's a pity no one's hip to the possibility that he's endlessly repeating his greatest work of the 1980s. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jan 25, 2005
67% Santa Smokes (2002) Overall the acting is sound, the missteps few, and the murky digicam smash-and-grab sheen entirely apt for the cacophonous Christmas crush. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Dec 14, 2004
48% Straight Jacket (2004) Offers up a super-queered, tinny 1950s, one that plays loose and preachy with the Passion of Rock Hudson. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Dec 7, 2004
60% Scumrock (2004) Gripping, strangely beautiful, and poignant. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 16, 2004
84% Gloomy Sunday (2003) An apocryphal, pretty, and somewhat pat biography of the title ballad. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 4, 2003
52% Suspended Animation (2003) Alternately tense and cheesy, Suspended Animation returns its director, John Hancock, to the blood-soaked turf he spaded 30 years ago with his ageless nail-biter Let's Scare Jessica to Death. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 28, 2003
79% Washington Heights (2002) The DV tics (vertiginous pull-zooms, smeary focus) can't bury the movie's immense heart. ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 6, 2003
78% Reno: Rebel Without a Pause (2003) What seems like a nut-on-a- bar-stool rant morphs into a triumphal evocation of the emotional-political bluster of that time. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 29, 2003
50% The Hero: Love Story of a Spy (2003) Nothing if not a scary surge of Indian nationalism. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 15, 2003
80% Ghosts of the Abyss (2003) Aside from his CGI ghostcraft unwittingly co-opting Pat O'Neill's last feature, Cameron is entirely predictable in a marines T-shirt, exhorting, 'Next stop, Titanic -- rock 'n' roll!' ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 15, 2003
35% Levity (2003) Real levity is barely present. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 1, 2003
26% Friday After Next (2002) A manically generous Christmas vaudeville. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2002
54% Uzumaki (2002) Puts most American would-be chillers to shame. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 30, 2002
3/4 95% Eternity and a Day (1999) Overall, Angelopoulos' film gives the viewer a sense of the infinite ... even if its languid artiness occasionally lulls you to sleep.‐ Reel.com
Posted Oct 30, 2001
43% All Over the Guy (2001) A painfully earnest case of generic romance spiced with queerness. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 7, 2001
28% Kingdom Come (2001) Demands high tolerance for low comedy. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 10, 2001
88% The Widow of Saint-Pierre (The Widow of St. Pierre) (La veuve de Saint-Pierre) (2000) Melds cushy, humanist-to-the-bone politics with a captivating, if somewhat discordant, cast. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 1, 2001
18% Saving Silverman (2001) Despite an early, zesty deluge of gags ... it soon settles down to an anxious man-a-thon. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 14, 2001
49% The Price of Milk (2001) A shaggy, appealing parable. ‐ Village Voice
