74% Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) (2006) "Except for a few missteps, the movie is so beautifully and sensitively rendered in its particulars, in its characterizations of soldiers and officers, and in its dramatization of a nearly miraculous event, that the result is an affecting piece of cinema. " ‐ New Times

97% 51 Birch Street (2006) "The resulting documentary begins shakily, with a naked self-consciousness that can be off-putting, but quickly develops into an absorbing and ever deepening drama. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Oct 18, 2006
40% Broken Sky (2006) "Without dialogue, we don't know who the characters are, so we can't care about what they do. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 26, 2006
29% Zen Noir (2006) "Any hopes that Marc Rosenbush's film might transcend its unimaginative title are dashed almost immediately, as manic fade-outs, fade-ins and overlays of portentous symbols give way to mannered dialogue and bad jokes. " ‐ L.A. Weekly
Posted Sep 22, 2006
75% American Blackout (2006) "McKinney's basic truths remain convincing. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 19, 2006
59% Red Doors (2005) "Red Doors is so well-meaning, with such obvious affection for its characters, that it pleases nonetheless. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Sep 5, 2006
43% Reinas (Queens) (2006) "With five overbearing mothers and six overshadowed gay sons, this Spanish meet-the-parents ensemble farce aims for Almodóvar but falls far short. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 25, 2006
74% Princesas (Princesses) (2005) "De Aranoa never condescends to his subjects, and Caye's mixture of aggression and tenderness is appealingly authentic. Could this be the first film to use a cell phone ringtone to devastating emotional effect? " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 22, 2006
76% Factotum (2006) "Bent Hamer's deadpan adaptation of the Charles Bukowski novel has an appealing listlessness, but it begs the question: Is there anything left to learn from this material? " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 15, 2006
76% The Puffy Chair (2005) "It may not seem like much, but The Puffy Chair works. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Aug 2, 2006
79% Been Rich All My Life (2006) "The Silver Belles, five former Harlem chorus girls who are still bustin' a move despite their advanced ages, are the best kind of company there is. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 18, 2006
24% Autumn (2006) "[The] film begins with too much pretension but matures into a slinky, sexy piece of mood music. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 6, 2006
38% Guys and Balls (2006) "It sounds like gay porn, but it's actually a delightful romantic comedy from Germany. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 2, 2006
83% Somersault (2004) "Somersault's dreamy, sexy, rather chilly style captures Heidi's attempt to escape her past, to build something new atop the rubble of what came before, and ultimately to hide it. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 18, 2006
20% La mujer de mi hermano (2006) "Everything happens so slowly, and so meaningfully, that we see it coming for miles. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 11, 2006
60% Simon (2004) "Eddy Terstall's film is bipolar and ultimately wrenching, but it works if you let it. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 4, 2006
55% Adam & Steve (2005) "Writer-director Craig Chester's debut is truly enjoyable. " ‐ Village Voice
