It's About You (2012)

Posted Nov 14, 2011

A Novel Romance (2011)

The Reunion (2011)

OKA! (2011)

"The film somehow feels more fanciful than factual, a rift that's aggravated by the juxtaposition of the real actors' performances and the Bayaka pygmies' at times startling real presence." ‐Slant Magazine

Margaret (2011)

The Weird World of Blowfly (2011)

Stripped Down (2011)

A Horrible Way to Die (2011)

"As a horror movie that feels more like a mumblecore drama that a serial killer passes through, it's deaf to its own shifting tones." ‐Slant Magazine

Girlfriend (2011)

2.5/4 97%

Rapt (2011)

"There's a preciseness and polish to the way the characters are played in Rapt that makes the film resemble an expensive chess set-one of those that adorns a room and rarely gets used." ‐Slant Magazine

3.5/4 94%

Dark Days (2000)
