Rating 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

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

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

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

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

77% 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
