Roar (1981)

"Whether you find that hilarious or just plain sad is up to you, but there almost certainly will never be anything like "Roar" again, and that's reason enough to check it out." ‐The Playlist

Sunshine Superman (2015)

"A pretty straightforward account of Boenish's life and tragic death, but man... all those skydiving, cliff-jumping and parachuting shots are really something to behold." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Nuoc (2030) (2014)

The Look of Silence (2015)

"While not as mind-blowing or surprising as "Killing," "The Look of Silence" is perhaps the more necessary film." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Cheatin' (2015)

"At times it comes to life, but for the most part it's a bit one-note and repetitive." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Simindis kundzuli (Corn Island) (2014)

"It feels unfinished, and unnecessarily padded by melodramatic plot developments and some strange, creepy exploitation of its young actress." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Clouds of Sils Maria (2015)

"It's slight and enjoyable, but falters a bit as it strains for profundity." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Spring (2015)

"There are strong elements and ideas at work in "Spring," and the filmmakers certainly have our attention moving forward. It seems, though, that they're still finding their voice and how to best communicate their good ideas." ‐The Playlist

B+ 84%

Alleluia (2015)

""Alleluia" works best late at night, where the spindly tendrils of its bizarro narrative can seep into a less lucid, exhausted brain, one that's far more susceptible to its (anti) charms." ‐The Playlist

B+ 97%

Red Army (2015)

""Red Army" deserves a wide audience and should even play better for those who don't care one iota about hockey, mostly because it's so entertaining and character-driven." ‐The Playlist

Young & Beautiful (Jeune Et Jolie) (2014)

"It's a balanced and honest look at young sexuality, and thankfully never didactic in its approach." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

3/4 96%

The Rocket (2014)

"In some ways, it feels like a throwback to many '80s teen movies, where everything comes down to a competition at the end, and the hero will finally get the chance to prove his worth." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Proxy (2014)

"Genre mashups are tough to pull off, but "Proxy" mostly does it." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Heli (2014)

"The imagery is equal parts ugly and beautiful as the tale descends into a nightmare most could never conceive." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

For No Good Reason (2014)

"Nothing special, but enjoyable nonetheless." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Borgman (2014)

"For those who get on its wavelength, the rewards are ample and the desire to re-watch will take over." ‐Minneapolis Star Tribune

Love Is All You Need (2013)

"Overstuffed Love Is All You Need an unsatisfying, predictable rom-com from Susanne Bier" ‐The Playlist

Mud (2013)

"Every scene, moment and shot of Mud is spot-on, necessary, and adds to the whole, making for a satisfying film experience that will please many a varied filmgoer's taste. " ‐The Playlist
