Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
85% It (2017) The key actors here, all hovering around the age of 15, are uniformly good, and director Andy Muschietti, whose last film was the shivery Mama, handles them with rare assurance. ‐ Reason Online

72% The Wizard of Lies (2017) Having expressed every cogent thought in its head in the first 50 minutes, Wizard drags along for another tortuously repetitive hour and half, a long day's journey into utter banality.‐ Reason Online

100% The Prison in Twelve Landscapes (2016) Story's refusal to use narration or otherwise provide facts to establish context for her vignettes actually damages her own arguments at times. ‐ Reason Online

No Score Yet Disgraced (2017) As in any good whodunnit, the pieces of Disgraced start falling in place.‐ Reason Online

94% Deidra & Laney Rob a Train (2017) Deidra & Laney won't remake the world, but it's a fun 90 minutes of television.‐ Reason Online

84% Tallulah (2016) Tallulah is calamitously funny, surprisingly touching, and streaked with debilitating melancholy as it contemplates motherhood, family, identity and forgiveness.‐ Reason Online

No Score Yet An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story (2013) There are many words that can be used in connection with An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story - infuriating, sickening, dismally depressing - but "pleasurable" is hard to apply to a documentary that recounts such a grotesque miscarriage of justice.‐ Miami Herald

No Score Yet Paradise: A Trilogy of Hope (2013) The film stands alone as a tender portrait of adolescence at its most vulnerable and how often we manage to survive it, even when we're surrounded by predators and wolves.‐ Miami Herald

92% Our Nixon (2013) It evokes a such crazy quilt of emotions and memories that children all over America are going to be wondering why their grandparents are crying or throwing shoes at the TV or both.‐ Miami Herald
Posted Aug 2, 2013
50% Phil Spector (2013) It's an insidious whitewash of a convicted killer and an infamous smear of his victim. It's a shame on all involved.‐ Miami Herald
Posted May 22, 2013
No Score Yet Creepy and cockeyed, unholy and unnerving, Top Of The Lake is riveting stuff.‐ Miami Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2013
80% The World According to Dick Cheney (2013) The World has plenty of dissenting interviews with journalists and lefty policy wonks who say that the measures Cheney employed were neither necessary nor productive. Cheney shrugs off their arguments.‐ Miami Herald
Posted Mar 13, 2013
3/4 96% Festival Express (2003) A fascinating time capsule of unseen moments from the 1960s, both the musical ... and the sociological as the cream of the musical counterculture comes face to face with its own greedy, bullying fans.‐ Miami Herald
