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

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

25% 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
