No Score Yet Pin Boy (Parapalos) (2004) Wondrously quiet and contemplative, minimal in form yet rich in observation and everyday poetry.‐ Film Comment Magazine

80% Woman is the Future of Man (2004) The simple structure, unwinding over roughly 36 hours, unassumingly encompasses a lifetime of disappointment and inescapable male foolishness. It's quite a rich, absorbing spectacle.‐ Film Comment Magazine

100% The 10th District Court: Moments of Trial (2004) Depardon's film is a fascinating study of clashing egos and dueling rhetorical styles.‐ Film Comment Magazine

71% À tout de suite (Right Now) (2005) Benoît Jacquot's À tout de suite, a concentrated, carefully understated look at teenage confusion, is the director's best film since Pas de scandale, and it provides a perfect illustration of "small" film virtues.‐ Film Comment Magazine

77% Tropical Malady (2005) Image for image, this hour-long stretch provided the Cannes competition with its most rarefied and ravishing experience. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

90% In the Mood for Love (2001) In the Mood for Love belongs to Cheung, whose beauty lights up the movie like the polar star lights up a winter sky. Cheung is one of the few modern actresses who understands her own physical beauty as an expressive instrument.‐ Film Comment Magazine

83% Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour) (2018) In Garrel's third black-and-white meditation on jealousy ... the spells of sustained breathable time have become a little more compact but no less beautiful or wondrously close to lived existence.‐ Film Comment Magazine

91% Bridge of Spies (2015) Bridge of Spies is a warm portrait of a friendship, an excitingly intricate story of realistically scaled suspense, and a visually ravishing and lovingly crafted rendering of mid-century America, where how you look matters much less than what you do.‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% Gone Girl (2014) This "trashy," "misogynist" popcorn movie based on a "supermarket best seller" is one of the gutsiest and most complex cinematic enterprises I've encountered in a while.‐ Film Comment Magazine

73% Inherent Vice (2015) Anderson brings us tangibly close to the colors and moods and dream horizons of America in the days of Hawks and Doves. We breathe its air and move with its remembered gesticulations at its peculiar pace.‐ Film Comment Magazine

88% Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language) (2014) Adieu au langage is a film that brings us face to face with doubt, despair, and everyday existential confusion, made in a state of pure liberty.‐ Film Comment Magazine

No Score Yet The Stalking Moon (1968) Robert Mulligan was the only American filmmaker to wade into such painfully vexing and frightfully bourgeois territory, and come out with a truly great film.‐ Film Comment Magazine

82% Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Much more than a scathing indictment of Dubya-era complicity, Michael Moore's exposé lays bare the devastating heartbreak now central to America's wartime reality.‐ Film Comment Magazine

85% 2046 (2005) For all its balance and grandeur, 2046 is the most nervous of Wong's films.‐ Film Comment Magazine

89% Bernie (2012) But the troubling question at the heart of this liberating, sunlit, deceptively simple but extremely complex and fairly formidable film is: should the law or the community itself decide the fate of its citizens? ‐ Film Comment Magazine

55% A Burning Hot Summer (2012) I have never seen a Garrel film untouched by grace, and A Burning Hot Summer is no exception. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

52% Promised Land (2013) Damon and Krasinski's script isn't completely solid, but it follows a believably wayward path to a lovely, muted ending. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% Computer Chess (2013) Computer Chess is one of the most original and satisfying movies I've seen in ages.‐ Film Comment Magazine

81% The Sleepy Time Gal (2001) The final effect of Sleepy Time Gal is of a lovingly crafted patchwork quilt, sewn by hand, billowing as it falls over the bed.‐ Film Comment Magazine
