Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 No Score Yet Porcupine Lake (2017) Remarkable performances by the two young actors at the centre of the film -- along with assured, subtle storytelling by director/screenwriter Ingrid Veninger -- propel this cottage country coming-of-age drama.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 100% Sled Dogs (2017) However you feel about commercial dog sledding, Fern Levitt's Sled Dogs is bound to rankle - either because of the material itself or the filmmaker's take.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 27% Milton's Secret (2016) Milton's Secret carries a powerful and important message, but the film feels ham-fisted, clichéd and overearnest at times, especially for adult viewers.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 65% Anthropoid (2016) While it's easy to sneer at the romantic subplot, it serves to humanize the characters and convey their intense fear. Otherwise we know too little about them - beyond the fact they are all impossibly good-looking.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 51% Genius (2016) Not nearly as smart as it should be.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) When one of the most enlightening moments of a film comes during the postscript (black holes!), you know there's a problem - one that has nothing to do with math.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 73% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) A steamy, suspenseful tension-bomb - psychological, sexual, you name it - with potential catastrophe at the periphery of each scene.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 60% Borealis (2015) The film is rife with tropes: the bonding road trip, the blindness that allows for true vision and a ruthless money-lender called "the Rabbi."‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 58% The Brainwashing of My Dad (2016) In addition to an overreliance on Skype and silly effects such as laugh tracks - the film's examination feels shallow.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 No Score Yet Guantanamo's Child - Omar Khadr (2015) For viewers with minds made up about Omar Khadr, who see him as a terrorist who should be locked away, this documentary may make for uncomfortable viewing.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 No Score Yet Fractured Land (2015) The film is powerful; a skillful study in landscape as well as character.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 100% Haida Gwaii: On The Edge Of The World (2015) Much more than a profile of this remarkable place and the cast of characters who populate it, this film captures the heart and heartbreak of the clashes it has seen, primarily over logging.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 26% Hellions (2015) This creepfest initially serves up some good horror-flick fun, but seems to lose the plot as the wind kicks up and the sky changes colour and the chase goes on and on ...‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 80% Mountain Men (2016) Mountain Men delivers big heart, some big laughs and authentic character development observed through sharp, but always natural, dialogue.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 73% The Kindergarten Teacher (Haganenet) (2015) Poetry is dead - but maybe a five-year-old boy can save it, with the help of his kindergarten teacher.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 91% Sunshine Superman (2015) Long before there were GoPros, there was Boenish, a camera mounted on his helmet, jumping from Yosemite's El Capitan or L.A. skyscrapers under construction.‐ Globe and Mail

80% Monsoon (2014) With its sweeping images recorded in ultrahigh-def, Monsoon is a visual stunner - a visceral experience of India during monsoon season.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 100% Purgatorio: A Journey Into the Heart of the Border (2014) The cinematography is stunning, the images horrifically powerful, but Mr. Reyes's point would be better served if he pulled back a bit on the poetic narration.‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 84% Good Ol' Freda (2013) In this charming insider account, Kelly traces her history with the band from the very early days until after their split.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 95% Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey (2011) [Clash is] portrayed as a mild-mannered, kind, giving, supremely talented soul, with a deep love for the puppet he animates and the children who love him.‐ Globe and Mail

2.5/4 No Score Yet Doppelgänger Paul (2011) Dryborough and Runyan deliver spot-on performances in this buddy flick with a purpose; the chemistry between them is undeniable.‐ Globe and Mail

3/4 90% A Screaming Man (2011) Despite its title, the film is a quiet rebuke of war and its impact on everyday life: people and families. Without a single battle scene, the horrors of war bleed through the screen.‐ Globe and Mail

2/4 No Score Yet Funkytown (2012) There's a lot of ground to cover in this ensemble piece, and the threads are uneven -- not just in terms of depth, but quality.‐ Globe and Mail
