Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% Citizenfour (2014) Quite possibly the strongest documentary about secret state intervention in private lives ... ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 12, 2014
52% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) [A] minor addition to [Allen's] output ... ‐ Screen International
Posted Jul 18, 2014
72% Everyday (2013) Here there is glory in the lives of simple, unprivileged folk and the more-or-less banal events of their daily lives. ‐ Screen International
Posted Nov 18, 2013
96% The Deep (2013) The film's gorgeous, nearly monochromatic visuals, haunting sounds of nature at its cruellest, and rare, appealingly anti-heroic storyline should entice a large chunk of viewers. ‐ Screen International
Posted Jul 16, 2013
87% Life of Pi (2012) Besides the brilliant use of artifice in evidence here, the real-flesh-and-blood lead performer Suraj Sharma, in his first role at the age of 17, is indispensable to the film's success. ‐ Screen International

70% Student (2013) The use of gorgeous spare wrapping for complex ideas is an inspired choice that keeps the entire project both accessible and stimulating. ‐ Screen International
Posted May 22, 2012
55% In the Land of Blood and Honey (2011) [Jolie's] stretch is bigger than her grasp. ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 16, 2011
81% The Myth Of The American Sleepover (2011) Few US indie films since Michael Lehmann's Heathers have shown the originality of The Myth of the American Sleepover, David Robert Mitchell's poignant debut feature. ‐ Screen International
Posted Jul 20, 2011
76% 3 Backyards (2011) Mendelsohn refuses to satirize suburbia, or to take it too seriously. What he does do is present very real souls who just happen to live in this kind of community with compassion and understanding. ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 10, 2011
95% No One Knows About Persian Cats (Les Chats Persans) (2010) He blends the genres of concert film, social drama, comedy, and thriller into a cohesive faux-documentary, adjusting his style to insure a snug fit. ‐ Screen International
Posted May 15, 2009
47% Spring Fever (Chun feng chen zui de ye wan) (2010) Director Lou Ye, aided by Zeng Jian's astonishing camerawork, manages to hit a poignant note with floral imagery in Spring Fever. ‐ Screen International
Posted May 14, 2009
60% Bitter & Twisted (2008) It's a miracle when an untracked English-language film arrives on the scene -- and a special joy when said movie is smashing. ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 18, 2008
No Score Yet From Within (2009) Phedon Papamichael's third foray into directing is little more than another hackneyed horror film. ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 18, 2008
95% Of Time and the City (2009) Davies accessibly structures what is almost entirely archival footage and narrates the scenes himself using his own memories and observations, infused with a dose of sarcasm and camp. ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 18, 2008
61% Newcastle (2008) The editing, the addition of a gay character, and the schmaltzy music which accompanies the underwhelming surfing montages are all that distinguish Newcastle from the generic Frankie Avalon beach movies of the '50s. ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 18, 2008
62% Adoration (2008) The stories here are thin, unnecessarily complicated and glibly cryptic; some sections are difficult to follow, even annoying in their self-consciousness. ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 18, 2008
70% Bart Got a Room (2009) Hecker has a firm grasp on editing for comic effect, and clearly knows how to use his actors to those ends. ‐ Screen International
