78% 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 EDIT

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 EDIT

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 EDIT

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 EDIT

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 EDIT

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 EDIT
