Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
89% Fresh Dressed (2015) Much of this film is told through interviews: Mr. Kani is fascinating and also funny; Mr. Combs is cocksure; and Kanye West is appealingly hyper. ‐ New York Times

100% Song From The Forest (2015) This nonjudgmental documentary moves between New York City and the rain forests of the Central African Republic, where Mr. Sarno primarily lives. Both places are tugs of war between abundance and lack. ‐ New York Times

94% The Wrecking Crew (2015) Mostly, it's hagiography, with stars like Cher and Brian Wilson used as character witnesses to the players' greatness. ‐ New York Times
Posted Mar 13, 2015
57% Justin Bieber's Believe (2013) Films like this work best when exalting is the task, and when it comes to displaying Mr. Bieber in his milieu - on stage - it shines. ‐ New York Times

2.5/5 43% Waiting For Lightning (2012) IIf it's a god on a skateboard you want, a god on a skateboard you'll get in this hagiography ... ‐ New York Times

3/5 No Score Yet I Do Bidoo Bidoo: Heto nApo sila! (2012) An exuberant if creaky Filipino musical that never lets story get in the way of its songs. ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 29, 2012
2.5/5 86% Madrid, 1987 (2012) A sweet, sometimes dull and certainly overlong film ... ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 11, 2012
3.5/5 No Score Yet Avé (2012) An unexpectedly elegant ballet of resistance and attachment. ‐ New York Times
Posted Oct 2, 2012
2/5 29% The Day (2012) "The Day" cycles through bursts of horrific violence only to end much as it begins: static, hollow and vague. ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 29, 2012
3.5/5 88% Shut Up and Play the Hits (2012) "Shut Up" is graceful in its depiction of the performance, neither uncomfortably intimate nor shy. ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 26, 2012
9% Marci X (2003) Sports woefully outmoded cultural punchlines. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 26, 2003
23% Bad Boys II (2003) Bad Boys 2 plays like a flashy highlight reel from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 22, 2003
26% Cradle 2 the Grave (2003) [DMX] acts like he raps -- in fits and starts, with heaps of ruff growling. Li barely has enough lines to qualify for a SAG card. ‐ Village Voice
