non-numerical 90% Wild (2014) Witherspoon ably assumes the role of a woman who has veered from the path of righteousness to become a wreck who must lose herself in the wilderness to find her way back‐ Film Comment Magazine

77% Canopy (2014) In many ways, Canopy is closer to a fairy tale than a war film, its soldier like a hero on a perilous, mystical journey through a primordial forest, with a sort of pre-linguistic logic guiding the action.‐ Film Comment Magazine

83% Dormant Beauty (2014) Despite the awkward narrative structure, the choppy film serves as a welcome showcase for ably understated performances from veteran Toni Servillo and rising talent Alba Rohrwacher, and a coolly burning Isabelle Huppert.‐ Film Comment Magazine

73% Go For Sisters (2013) Lady Justice wears a blindfold, but her earthly emissaries have been known to sneak a peak now and then. Go for Sisters portrays these deviations from the straight and narrow and from the unfeeling ideal of justice with a delicate touch.‐ Film Comment Magazine

92% The Spectacular Now (2013) [Ponsoldt] enjoys playing with our expectations by following conventions, luring us into the sense that we know what's coming, and then swerving just a little off-road for a detour.‐ Film Comment Magazine

No Score Yet El estudiante (The Student) (2013) The film is not about actual idealism or political programs, or preferences for certain economic policies; it's about the social aspect of politics, the ways that the personal enters the political and that politics can become a game.‐ Film Comment Magazine

47% Zaytoun (2013) Zaytoun is relatively successful in tiptoeing through the political minefield of the subject matter, and it offers out the promise of hope and possibility without raising expectations.‐ Film Comment Magazine
