Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

All Cheerleaders Die (2014)

"All Cheerleaders Die actually delivers as much trashy, gory fun as a movie with such a title suggests." ‐ Village Voice

The Amazing Catfish (2014)

"Claudia Sainte-Luce's semi-autobiographical indie has a knack for subverting stereotypes without making a big deal about it." ‐ Village Voice

Chinese Puzzle (Casse-tête chinois) (2014)

"Over a decade since the series started, it's still that same earnest tribute to the thrills of taking on a new locale." ‐ Village Voice

The Discoverers (2014)

"Schwarz is clearly drawing from the same bag of tricks as many of his indie comedy predecessors, but he's refining them. Even his wide, Wes Anderson-ian compositions have a purpose." ‐ Village Voice

The American Nurse (2014)

"Carolyn Jones's portrait of five medical caregivers walks us through day-in, day-out sacrifices without ever coming off as sentimental or aggrandizing." ‐ Village Voice

Moms' Night Out (2014)

"Outrageously enough, the moral of Moms' Night Out seems to be that moms should never get a night out." ‐ Village Voice

Grand Slammed (2014)

"If characters are going to ignite into blazes of unchecked emotion every five minutes or so, you've got to make sure your actors have the chops. These, unfortunately, aren't sharp enough to bite." ‐ Village Voice

Visions of Mary Frank (2014)

"See it for initial exposure to a worthy artist, but don't expect to crack the surface." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 16, 2014

The Final Member (2014)

"This film demonstrates the supreme emotional effectiveness of a simple quest narrative." ‐ Village Voice

10 Rules For Sleeping Around (2014)

"The whole film is pretty enraging, hideously acted apart from the main quartet, and ends up viewing like a particularly racy Lifetime Original." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 1, 2014

Stay (2014)

"The somber mood lifts like clouds after a storm, at a pace just sluggish enough that the happy ending doesn't seem too gratuitous." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 18, 2014

Bottled Up (2014)

"Like Sylvie's wardrobe of oversized hoodies, the humor is loose and natural. It breaks up the tension of this addiction story with small, bright moments of pure joy." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 25, 2014

Endless Love (2014)

"A sunny, overlong pastiche of tropes, the kind that suggest love involves nothing more than holding hands and jumping off a dock into a lake, or having slow, teary-eyed sex in front of a fireplace, inexplicably blazing in mid-June." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Feb 13, 2014

Best Night Ever (2014)

"Best Night Ever seems marketed to women but made for frat house consumption." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jan 28, 2014

Tricked: The Documentary (2013)

"The film is wisely sparing of melodramatic flair, allowing the inherent drama of the situation to horrify and harrow on its own." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Dec 10, 2013

Three Worlds (2013)

"Feels like an overdrawn soap opera about everyone's simultaneous fear of and longing for consequences." ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 18, 2013

The History Of Future Folk (2013)

"Even as an apocalyptic plot-pushing rescue mission unfolds, slapstick police chases keep the level of diverting quirk high, and the husband-wife/father-daughter dynamics remain central." ‐ Village Voice
