A- 89% Le Week-End (2014) Veteran actors Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan are terrific in "Le Week-End" as the couple, capturing the irritations that build up on long-term relationships, while still finding room to laugh at each other's eccentricities.‐ Oregonian

B+ No Score Yet Wajma (An Afghan Love Story) (2013) It's gut-wrenching stuff, and it's clear it hits close to home for the young actors.‐ Oregonian

B+ 89% The Angels' Share (2013) Although some of the accents are so thick it's difficult to understand the dialogue (where are the subtitles when we need them?) the performances feel genuine.‐ Oregonian

A 92% Caesar Must Die (2013) For a movie with such a brisk pace -- it clocks in at just 76 minutes -- "Caesar Must Die" has surprising depth ...‐ Oregonian

B- 94% Lore (2013) Unfortunately, Saskia Rosendahl plays the title character as an emotionless blank slate, while her siblings come off as brats, making it difficult to feel compassion for her physical and emotional struggles.‐ Oregonian

A- 97% Ajami (2010) Filmmakers Scandar Copti and Yaron Shani, who also wrote the story, effectively show how, in a tinderbox fueled by racial and religious suspicions, quiet lives can be upended by mere chance, and how constant, random violence feeds upon itself.‐ Oregonian

B- 73% Under the Same Moon (2008) First-time director Patricia Riggen uses parallel story lines to tell the mother's and son's tales -- mom looks for her next job while the boy evades immigration workers, druggies and perverts.‐ Oregonian

B+ No Score Yet The Man You Had in Mind (2006) The overall impression is that long-term gay relationships are somehow heroic, and while that's no more the case than in the straight world, there are enough sweet moments to make this homegrown film worth catching.‐ Oregonian
