Posted Jul 1, 2012
2.5/4 82% A Cat in Paris (2012) ""A Cat in Paris" has a low-key charm and pleasurably laconic visual style. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 28, 2012
3.5/4 88% The Turin Horse (2012) ""The Turin Horse" is a parable, which means it's both very simple and very weighty. It's not about event and emotion, but duration and endurance. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 28, 2012
2/4 90% Portrait of Wally (2012) "The material's not so rich and complex that the documentary doesn't feel padded at 90 minutes. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 28, 2012
2.5/4 95% 5 Broken Cameras (2012) "What we do see has an immediacy and intimacy that's involving. It also can feel a bit wayward and cumulatively wearying. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 21, 2012
2.5/4 73% Payback (2012) "There's a splendid audacity in Baichwal trying to bring to the screen something as idea-driven as Atwood's book. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Jun 20, 2012
2.5/4 100% Lost Bohemia (2011) "It's wrenching to see these people, many of them elderly, confronted with the prospect of having to move. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 20, 2012
2.5/4 89% Whores' Glory (2012) "Glawogger has the good sense mostly to stay out of the way and let the material speak for itself. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 14, 2012
1.5/4 50% Beyond The Black Rainbow (2012) ""Beyond the Black Rainbow" has a doomy, dreamy, druggy, draggy feel that's impressively sustained - until it becomes oppressive, then pointless, then laughable. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 7, 2012
2.5/4 No Score Yet We Still Live Here: Âs Nutayuneân "Language, it must be said, isn't the most compelling subject visually. Makepeace strives to compensate. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 6, 2012
2/4 20% Mighty Fine (2012) "Too many directions can be as much of a liability for a movie as too few, and "Mighty Fine" heads in all of them. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 24, 2012
2/4 75% Surviving Progress (2012) "A slick jeremiad, "Surviving Progress" is expertly made (it's far from tedious) but intellectually muddled. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 17, 2012
3.5/4 No Score Yet The Story Of Film: An Odyssey (2012) "It's wildly ambitious, often extremely good, occasionally maddening, and always stimulating. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted May 16, 2012

Posted Apr 12, 2012
3/4 81% Hipsters (2011) "It's taken the Russian musical "Hipsters" four years to reach America. That's all right. It may take audiences four years to recover. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 12, 2012
1/4 21% October Baby (2012) ""October Baby" looks and feels like a Lifetime movie waiting not to happen. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Apr 12, 2012

Posted Dec 14, 2011
2/4 55% How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster? (2012) "A treatment of Foster so reverential it verges on camp. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 13, 2011
3/4 88% Eames: The Architect And The Painter (2011) "A basically adulatory and very lively look at the documentary's subjects. " ‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 83% The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby (2011) "Presumably, Colby would be pleased to know he comes across as neither compelling nor vivid - which in some ways makes him all the more interesting. " ‐ Boston Globe

Posted Nov 3, 2011
2/4 24% The Three Musketeers (2011) "Call it the Robert Downey Jr. Meets Sherlock Holmes Effect. A classic popular adventure gets overblown, juiced-up, and generally CGI-ified. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 23, 2011
1.5/4 8% 1911 (2011) "With "1911,'' art direction speaks louder than words. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 6, 2011
2.5/4 69% The City Dark (2012) "The documentary tries to take on too much, but Cheney's enthusiasm for the subject makes that understandable. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Oct 6, 2011
2.5/4 80% Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2011) "It's slambang in pacing, bald in exposition, and offers cast-of-hundreds spectacle. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 22, 2011
1.5/4 54% Farmageddon (2011) "The one-sidedness of "Farmageddon'' isn't just an artistic failing. It's an argumentative failing, too. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 15, 2011
3/4 97% Rapt (2011) ""Rapt'' is smooth, cool, and efficient. It's a movie with very little wasted motion - or, for much of its length, wasted emotion. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 15, 2011
2.5/4 88% The Hedgehog (2011) "Enchantment will go a long way toward overcoming implausibility, but there's not enough of the former here - and far too much of the latter. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 1, 2011
3/4 69% Magic Trip (2011) "It's the movie "Yellow Submarine'' should have been but didn't know how to be. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 1, 2011
3/4 100% Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness (2011) "This is a person you'd enjoy spending time with and learning from. That's certainly the case with Dorman's film. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 25, 2011
2/4 51% Brighton Rock (2011) "What was once an impurely pure outpost of Graham Greeneland now feels a bit like the Who's "Quadrophenia,'' with mods and rockers mixing it up around the edges. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 25, 2011
2/4 88% If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front (2011) "The problem is that the heart of the movie is McGowan. He's just not a very compelling figure. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 28, 2011
1.5/4 14% Zookeeper (2011) "The talking animals are wildly child-pleasing, except that much of their talk concerns matters of animal husbandry. Is there such a thing as a hard PG? " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jul 7, 2011
1.5/4 97% Queen Of The Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? (2011) "What we don't get in "Queen of the Sun'' is anyone suggesting there might be some merit to how agribusiness is conducted. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 23, 2011
2.5/4 61% Jig (2011) ""Jig'' is involving, if at times overly slick. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 16, 2011
2/4 69% Bride Flight (2011) ""Bride Flight'' is the sort of old-fashioned women's picture they stopped making around the time Christina Crawford had to put away the wire hangers. " ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jun 16, 2011
3.5/4 100% Nostalgia for the Light (2011) "A nearly unbearable examination of good and bad in the human heart. " ‐ Boston Globe
