3.5/4 100% Sound City (2013) Dave Grohl shares a lot of stories in Sound City, and what's most impressive is that for a first-time filmmaker he tells these tales remarkably well.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 87% Happy People: A Year in the Taiga (2013) It's clear Mother Nature is the real boss in Bakhtia, and Happy People: A Year in the Taiga documents a few men doing a wary pas de deux with her in a genuinely fascinating and intelligent fashion.‐ TV Guide

3/4 87% Arbitrage (2012) Gere doesn't give Robert a remarkable amount of depth, but he certainly plays his damaged, agonized soul for all it's worth, even as the movie views him from a coolly removed distance.‐ TV Guide

4/4 97% Monsieur Lazhar (2012) Philippe Falardeau's direction is a model of the notion that less is more, and this film is a treat well worth savoring.‐ TV Guide

4/4 96% The Kid with a Bike (2012) It's a powerful, well-crafted film and a striking depiction of a side of growing up few filmmakers have tried to put on film. Fewer still have captured it with this sort of honesty and emotional gravity.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 94% Searching for Sugar Man (2012) There's no arguing this is a remarkable story, and director Malik Bendjelloul tells it beautifully, creating a powerful sense of mystery and discovery even when we're tipped off to how the story ends.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 98% This Is Not a Film (2012) This Is Not a Film is a practical joke as much as it is a movie, and while it possesses a deadly serious undercurrent, what's most surprising is how witty the finished product is.‐ TV Guide

2/4 12% Alex Cross (2012) Tyler Perry's bid to reinvent himself like Bruce Willis or Matt Damon in Alex Cross is ultimately a failure, but if it's any consolation to him, he's hardly the only reason this film is not worth your time.‐ TV Guide

3/4 87% Frankenweenie (2012) Its heart is still the relationship between a boy and his dog, and it still pulls at the heartstrings no matter how strongly you resist.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 88% The Turin Horse (2012) If this truly is Bela Tarr's final film, there's no arguing he bows out with something extraordinary that no other director could have imagined.‐ TV Guide

3.5/4 92% Arthur Christmas (2011) In a season unexpectedly full of quality family films, Arthur Christmas may have to fight for the attention it deserves, but if there was ever an example of a film that's a crowd-pleaser without talking down to its audience, this is it.‐ TV Guide

3/4 92% Corman's World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel (2011) Corman's World sometimes plays more like a celebrity roast in which Corman's friends tell funny stories about him for 90 minutes with a lot of film clips thrown in, but those stories are often hilarious and enlightening.‐ TV Guide

3/4 40% Ceremony (2011) While Ceremony may not look or feel terribly original, Winkler has clearly learned a lot from his study of [Wes] Anderson's oeuvre, and he's made a comedy that's intelligent, stylish, and effective even when it's emulating someone else's work.‐ TV Guide
