T-Meter Title | Year
96% Elvis Presley: The Searcher (2018) It shows Presley's passion and control, his visceral drama, his mastery. But it can't explain all that he left undone. - New York Times EDIT

No Score Yet The Breaks (2016) It's an affectionate, determinedly credible period piece with lightly fictionalized versions of people and places from the era. - New York Times EDIT

71% Sun Ra: Space Is the Place (1974) Space Is the Place has more than a few hokey moments, but it also illuminates Ra's work. For him, outer space wasn't just a gimmick or a convenient source of song titles. It was a zone where racism was inoperative. - New York Times EDIT

23% The Forbidden Dance (1990) Its dance sequences are barely sexier than a bowling tournament. But connoisseurs of clunky dialogue and shameless continuity lapses should look no further. - New York Times EDIT

78% Phenomena (Creepers) (1985) The best acting is by an expressive, resourceful chimpanzee - definitely the year's Best Supporting Primate. - New York Times EDIT
