No Score Yet Learning to See: The World of Insects (2016) Oelman's filmmaker son Jake honors his father's story in this thoughtful doc... we get Oelman's thrill of discovery, and the amazing macro images of insects that gave focus to his life. ‐ Austin Chronicle

No Score Yet The Hollywood Shorties (2016) The Hollywood Shorties is a sweet, compelling film with a deeper message about what it means to look a little different in Hollywood, and America in general. ‐ Austin Chronicle

44% Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru (2016) Robbins comes across as both driven and caring, but the skeptics will still find much to question, and that's part of the film's strength. In the end, it's the seminar participants' stories that make this a compelling film. ‐ Austin Chronicle

100% Butterfly Girl (2015) Bell says she didn't want to make a disease movie, but instead a human portrait of survival. She succeeds. ‐ Austin Chronicle

36% After The Fall (2014) Moral ambiguity is center stage, and the film ultimately succeeds by sending audiences home to ponder their own levels of sin. ‐ Austin Chronicle

83% The Short Game (2013) While a cast of characters this large could easily hinder a doc's focus, it works perfectly in The Short Game to give both a global view and to show how sports can be a Zen-like calling at any age. ‐ Austin Chronicle

55% Hood To Coast (2010) Sometimes the race is secondary, Baaden and Hume tell us in this beautifully shot and heartfelt doc about an annual team running event from Oregon's Mount Hood, past Portland and on to the ocean's edge. ‐ Austin Chronicle

56% Skills Like This (2007) The casting is unique, the acting able, and the camera work expert. ‐ Austin Chronicle

No Score Yet Punk Like Me (2006) The result is a hilarious, honest film about never, ever growing up. ‐ Austin Chronicle

3.5/5 86% My Country, My Country (2006) Regardless of on which side of the fence viewers stand, this documentary will reverberate. ‐ Austin Chronicle

3/5 74% Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006) The film starts off treading goofy ground, but somewhere along the way, Glosserman slaps us across the skull and confidently turns the switch to gruesome. ‐ Austin Chronicle
