90% My Summer of Love (2004) Ryszard Lenczewski's superb cinematography effectively captures the rhythm of the girls' volatile interactions and growing obsession. His handheld camerawork has a quicksilver alertness.‐ Film Comment Magazine

100% Stalker (1979) There are no flying saucers in the great Russian director's haunting tale of a journey into the depths of a postapocalyptic landscape, but it offers visual splendor, as well as mysteries, portents and miracles.‐ Wall Street Journal

83% Morvern Callar (2002) While [Lynne] Ramsay's sensibility is entirely her own, it approaches the rawness of work by Nan Goldin or Richard Billingham. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

65% Sixty Six (2006) Throughout Sixty Six, Klahr unleashes a dazzling array of visual ideas, deftly combined with sounds, silence, or music and all in the service of what he calls the film's "pop associational mindscape."‐ Film Comment Magazine

91% Heal the Living (Réparer les vivants) (2017) Heal the Living assembles an array of sensitive performances, but it takes place on a more metaphysical plane. Its characters often seem to have stepped outside the normal flow of time.‐ Film Comment Magazine

94% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) A measure of peace and joy is achieved at the end of Fontaine's film, but one wonders what scars remain.‐ Film Comment Magazine

No Score Yet As Piotr says in Dekalog: Five: "Everyone wonders if what they do has any meaning. I'm afraid that that meaning gets harder and harder to find." Dekalog challenges us to search for it in a complex world.‐ Wall Street Journal

95% Marguerite (2016) Beneath the antic plot and sentimental portrayal of her marriage is a moving portrait of a woman who searches for an audience and loses herself.‐ Film Comment Magazine

79% Time Out Of Mind (2015) Time Out of Mind unfolds slowly, but mostly rewards the viewer's patience. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

84% Eden (2015) Although Eden is not a comprehensive account of the emergence of the "French touch" sound, the film incorporates historical details and ephemera that evoke the texture of real life, such as the zine that gives the film its title. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

91% Fish Tank (2010) [Andrea] Arnold has a knack for subtle details but also for portraying female characters whose natural warmth and energy have been muted by trauma or social isolation.‐ Film Comment Magazine

87% Abuse of Weakness (2014) It's hard to imagine an actress other than Huppert so artfully layering frailty and toughness, self-delusion and self-awareness, and her complex portrayal is an irresistible foil to Kool Shen's blank expressions and wounded swagger. ‐ Film Comment Magazine

73% Infamous (2006) The other-and possibly greater-Capote pic about the geneiss of In Cold Blood‐ Film Comment Magazine

90% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) Ultimately, it is mainly the electrifying performances that Kechiche presumably elicited from Seydoux and Exarchopoulos that make Blue Is the Warmest Color a memorable film, however flawed.‐ Film Comment Magazine

92% Farewell, My Queen (2012) His portrait loses some of its eerie power through the ugly twist at the film's conclusion, but she remains a fascinating enigma, and touchingly human.‐ Film Comment Magazine

93% Mother Of George (2013) The poetic visuals create a disorienting sense of being at once immersed in the characters' world and kept at a distance.‐ Film Comment Magazine

93% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) The film is almost unfailingly funny, but it also has a rapt quality, as if we are viewing the events through Suzy's binoculars or reading the story under the covers by a flashlight.‐ Film Comment Magazine
