86% In The Shadow of Women (2016) Merhar emotes so little than his bodily tremble during a climactic argument with his wife is seismic. Courau, on the other hand, frowns, dotes, laughs, and seems entirely human.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

78% Viktoria (2016) It's still a matter of some celebration that Viktoria screened at Sundance in 2014, the first Bulgarian movie to make it to that specific West.‐ Brooklyn Magazine

85% Francofonia (2016) An essay film, maybe a lyric essay film: ambitious and personal, concise and complex, insightful and at times limited by ponderousness.‐ Brooklyn Magazine
