Your Sister's Sister (2012)

"With this convoluted set-up in place, three actors with extraordinary chemistry play it all out to the end, and somehow the feeling deepens, even as the jokes spiral out of control." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Natural Selection (2012)

"I'm still reeling at how high a level of difficulty this film worked at, with its bold tonal shifts, meshing of truly dark material and spastic physical comedy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Damsels in Distress (2012)

"Stillman is in fine form, depicting this campus as a kind of Ivy League Idiocracy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Brighton Rock (2011)

"Brighton's "not what she used to be," says one gangster, and that sure is a shame: The 1947 adaptation was so much more, and so much more strange." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Circumstance (2011)

"The film doesn't feel weighed down with the burden of representation: It's too free-flowing for that, too plot-heavy, too stylish, too romantic, too hot." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Friends With Benefits (2011)

"Fast-paced and fabulously fake, Friends With Benefits is the Red Bull of romantic comedies, unapologetically delivering a hyperactive, synthetic buzz." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Winnie the Pooh (2011)

"After a summerlong rampage of Hollywood's obnoxious misbehavior, Pooh is mercifully without sting." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Horrible Bosses (2011)

"Still, Day's scene involving a mountain of cocaine is hyperspeed-hilarious, Farrell's unhinged, irrational fuming is marvelously cretinous, and Aniston's fully committed sex-addict sexpot act is wickedly absurd." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest (2011)

"it's Rapaport's mistake to spend so much time and energy unpacking something so much more obvious, and so much less interesting, than Tribe's music. " ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Monte Carlo (2011)

"Even within the manipulative Princess-for-a-Day genre, Disney Channel product Selena Gomez's Monte Carlo is a chintzy knockoff. " ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Cars 2 (2011)

"...by Pixar's outrageous standards of Oscar shoo-in virtuosity, this sequel is a disappointment at best." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011)

"Jim Carrey's farts-and-flippers comedy, which, though exceedingly dumb, is at least very smart about what appeals to 4- to 10-year-old kids, fans of Happy Feet, March of the Penguins, and YouTube animal videos." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Priest (2011)

Jumping the Broom (2011)

""The comedy is as familiar as the ceremony at a cookie-cutter wedding factory: Much feels old or borrowed; nothing feels new."" ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Something Borrowed (2011)

""Inept and implausible in almost every way, Something Borrowed is the smug rom-com answer to the Apatowian man-child comedy."" ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Super (2011)

"For all its indie posturing, Super feels as callow as any other big studio flick to court Comic Con: A B-movie splatter flick dressed up as a critique, dressed up as a black comedy, dressed up as a spoof, and capped with an ironic epilogue." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Fanny & Alexander (1982)

The Betrayal - Nerakhoon (2008)

"Even in a city bursting with extraordinary immigrant stories, this film about a Laotian-American family's journey to Brooklyn is unusually moving." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Stranded: I Have Come from a Plane That Crashed on the Mountains (2008)

Let the Right One In (2008)

"Tomas Alfredson somehow takes a wild premise -- a ravenous 12-year-old bloodsucker who strikes up a romance with a bullied young boy in small-town Sweden -- and executes it with restraint and style." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine (2008)

"Remarkably and unsentimentally self-reflective, the artist talks to filmmakers Marion Cajori and Amei Wallach about a lifetime of tough work and tougher questions. Fascinating stuff." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Dark Matter (2008)

"Director Chen Shi-Zheng is inconsistent from one scene to the next, alternating clichés with convincing, specific details. The film never quite earns its whopper of a finale." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Stop-Loss (2008)

"Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Pearce attempts to anchor the Iraq War debate in the lives of a specific subset of soldiers and nearly pulls it off. But her promising premise runs into a rut of incompatible accents and melodramatic excess." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Sleep Dealer (2009)

CJ7 (2008)

"Even fans of Stephen Chow should probably skip his latest, kid-friendly flick. It's only sporadically funny, and often grating, and at some point you realize that you've been suckered into watching an extended advertisement for a toy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

American Cannibal: The Road to Reality (2006)

"Reality TV has rarely cared much about truth -- and maybe this is the doc it deserves. The crass truthiness here is far more apt than any of the glossy satire in American Dreamz." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Cocaine Cowboys (2006)

"Sure, the bombast is extreme, and, yes, it spends more time on tall tales than impact reports, but this vigorous, energetic doc captures the allure of a business that has never thrived on subtlety." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

The Polar Express (2004)
