4/4 94% Wagner's Dream (2012) A two-hour documentary that has as many hair-raising, stomach-churning moments as a ride on Wonderland's new Leviathan. - Toronto Star EDIT

3/4 70% The Magic Flute (2006) In the end, love triumphs. In this movie, the music triumphs, proving again that a true masterpiece can survive all kinds of meddling. - Toronto Star EDIT

1/4 17% Battle of the Brave (2004) History is long, life is short. It's certainly too short for the sort of overblown, melodramatic, pseudo-epic filmmaking Quebec's Jean Beaudin tried to foist on Francophone audiences two years ago. - Toronto Star EDIT

3/4 88% The Syrian Bride (2005) It all comes together in a potent cinematic mix, one that lends a deep humanity to a part of the world in dire need of greater understanding. - Toronto Star EDIT

2.5/4 78% Exils (2004) Through facial expression, gesture and deed, Gatlif manages to coax such a deep humanity out of his characters' situations that dialogue becomes superfluous. - Toronto Star EDIT

2/5 67% Lan Yu (2002) In the end, we are left with something like two ships passing in the night rather than any insights into gay love, Chinese society or the price one pays for being dishonest. - Toronto Star EDIT
