Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

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

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

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

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