44% La Soga (The Butcher's Son) (2010) The focus could have been refined and made for a simpler tale. As is, it's a thrilling ride -- as long as you don't try to dig too deep into the narrative structure.‐ New York Press

51% South of the Border (2010) To cram so much complicated history and politics -- not to mention unwavering admiration for a controversial figure such as Chávez -- into a slight documentary is egregious.‐ New York Press

94% Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman (2009) Shulman is such an interesting character due to the influence he wielded in Modern architecture's ability to flourish in America that all the gushy conversations with architects and academics actually seem merited.‐ New York Press

96% Herb & Dorothy (2008) Ultimately, the tale is inspiring: Why can't we all be like the Vogels and become great collectors?‐ New York Press

79% Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! (2008) Lacking much of the sarcastic edge found throughout Pixar's hits, we're able to appreciate the naive optimism that endears Seuss' creations to us, without looking for a rotten ironic core.‐ New York Press

83% The Sugar Curtain (El Telon de azucar) (2007) For those who've never seen Cuba up close, The Sugar Curtain offers an astonishing glimpse of the culture, one that's devoid of both the glamor and the manipulations of mainstream media.‐ New York Press

76% Shi gan (Time) (2007) It's a strange and subtly told tale that successfully hacks into the desires and fears of most us who are trying to figure out how to make love work -- without sewing it all back together into a nice, pretty package.‐ New York Press
