Baghead (2008)

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

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

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

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

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

Unscrewed (2003)

"A likable, wrinkly taint of a movie." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 8, 2005

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

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

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

Scumrock (2004)

"Gripping, strangely beautiful, and poignant." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 16, 2004

Gloomy Sunday (2003)

"An apocryphal, pretty, and somewhat pat biography of the title ballad." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 4, 2003

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

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

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

The Hero: Love Story of a Spy (2003)

"Nothing if not a scary surge of Indian nationalism." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 15, 2003

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

Levity (2003)

"Real levity is barely present." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 1, 2003

Friday After Next (2002)

"A manically generous Christmas vaudeville." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2002

Uzumaki (2002)

"Puts most American would-be chillers to shame." ‐ Village Voice

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

All Over the Guy (2001)

"A painfully earnest case of generic romance spiced with queerness." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 7, 2001

Kingdom Come (2001)

"Demands high tolerance for low comedy." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 10, 2001

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

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

The Price of Milk (2001)

"A shaggy, appealing parable." ‐ Village Voice
