Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% Argo (2012) Affleck is still building up his chops as a director, but the intelligence and ambition he brings to filmmaking are particularly apparent in Argo. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

79% Quartet (2013) If this film is any indication of {Hoffman] creative capacity as a director, one can only hope that he will pursue his third act with as much vigor as his first. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

41% Oldboy (2013) Viewers new to Oldboy will appreciate Lee's affecting and entertaining tale of a man unjustly imprisoned. Fans of Park's film-and there are many wildly loyal ones-will likely be far less impressed. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

82% The Broken Circle Breakdown (2013) Touching if not always coherent, The Broken Circle Breakdown is a strange film but one worth watching. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

73% Paradise: Love (2013) Watching Paradise: Love is a visceral, Schadenfreude-tinged experience that produces belly laughs and queasiness alike-sometimes in tandem. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

95% A Hijacking (2013) In his screenwriting, Tobias Lindholm has shown strong instincts for masculine melodrama and a knack for plot twists. As a director, though, he may still be getting his sea legs. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

41% Only God Forgives (2013) Gosling is little more than eye candy; he plays Julian as if he's always just about ready for a nap. ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2013
82% Prince Avalanche (2013) The journey taken by Alvin and Lance has few plot points, but the film is remarkably gripping and rich. ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2013
99% Short Term 12 (2013) Despite the heavy subject matter, the film never bogs down into the daily grief it depicts, but maintains a jaunty current of humor that counterbalances its melodramatic content. ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2013
50% Parkland (2013) For a film about tragedy writ large, Parkland manages to convey a deeper message of reconciliation and redemption ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2013
75% Kill Your Darlings (2013) A sometimes magical film that gives a palpable sense of the cultural currents and interpersonal dynamics that gave rise to the unlikely beginnings of the Beat generation. ‐ Film Comment Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2013
35% The Counselor (2013) Yet even if The Counselor fails to live up to its hype, with its snappy dialogue and satisfying action sequences, it is a good bit of naughty fun. ‐ Film Comment Magazine
