T-Meter Title | Year Review
99% The Missing Picture (2014) However ambivalently the film treats the Khmer Rouge footage, it prompts Panh's memories, and allows his clay figures to come to a kind of solemn, unmoving life. - The Brooklyn Rail EDIT

No Score Yet Paraguay Remembered (Memoria desmemoriada) (2015) Dubosc's voice-over ruminations recall the great filmic essays of Chris Marker as they unspool an interwoven personal and political history. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

91% Elle (2016) How do we reconcile the two vastly different films that make up Elle? - Reverse Shot EDIT

94% Yourself and Yours (2016) It is possible to see the entirety of Hong's films as variations on a theme, with a limited ensemble of actors working through a set of recurring scenarios, often within the same film. In this way, Hong Sang-soo is similar to Ozu. - Reverse Shot EDIT

83% My Week with Marilyn (2011) Outside of Williams, the rest of the venerable cast is squandered, effectively reduced to expensive, one-dimensional set pieces. - Reverse Shot EDIT

78% A Dangerous Method (2011) This, indeed, is the crux of the film: the gulf between the unutterable impulses of the body and the words we invent, if not to tame them, then to better know their secrets. - Reverse Shot EDIT

98% Timbuktu (2015) The film's inherent drama could easily be heightened with manufactured dread and suspense, but Sissako relaxes the pace to gain a broader view. Instead of accentuating conflict, he details smaller moments of change. - Reverse Shot EDIT

98% Let the Right One In (2008) In Sweden as elsewhere, real horrors -- bullies, child neglect, senseless violence -- happen all the time, but too often we don't stop to take notice. Not looking, Alfredson seems to argue, is in some ways the more serious offense. - Reverse Shot EDIT

85% Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (The Baader Meinhof Complex) (2008) Granted, the RAF leaders were attractive and charismatic, but the film, like its Shepard Fairey-designed poster, doesn't dig terribly deep beyond the surface of revolutionary chic. - Reverse Shot EDIT

No Score Yet The Last Buffalo Hunt (2010) The Last Buffalo Hunt parses the remains of Western conquest, the boom of expansion contracted into a desiccated, ghostly history. All that's left, the film proposes, are the people themselves. - L.A. Weekly EDIT

80% Incompresa (Misunderstood) (2015) As a director, Asia Argento has yet to advance beyond a notion of "promise." And judging by her third feature, Misunderstood, it's starting to look like she never will. - Reverse Shot EDIT

94% Tokyo Sonata (Tokyo Sonata) (2009) [H]ere, perhaps more urgently than ever before, it's about what happens when people confront the world outside, and what new, fragile connections they might begin to forge. - Film Comment Magazine EDIT

80% I Killed My Mother (2013) Dolan's vision, however distracted, remains strong ( ... ) As a writer, director, producer, and actor, he throws himself into the film's disjointed spaces, highlighting the ways in which multiple and contradictory states can be inhabited simultaneously - Film Comment Magazine EDIT
