Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013)

"As befits any postmodern Western, Ain't Them Bodies Saints necessarily addresses the idea of the death of the Western, or the death of the West as we have known it." ‐Film Comment Magazine

Corpo Celeste (2012)

"Though at times heavy-handed in its imagery and slow-paced, Rohrwacher's debut feature is remarkably unadorned and touching, putting forth a realistic portrait of modern Italy at a time when the country faces economic hardship as well as cultural changes." ‐Film Comment Magazine

China Heavyweight (2012)

"Chang works within the philosophical framework of the world of boxing to paint a poignant and often incisive portrait of the evolving Chinese cultural landscape and the temptations and ambitions that come with change." ‐Film Comment Magazine

The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2013)

"The film seems to dance around the idea of being really critical of America-of analogizing American "exceptionalism" with Islamic fundamentalism-and instead resolves itself with an ending more befitting of a beauty pageant contestant's speech." ‐Film Comment Magazine

Love Is All You Need (2013)

"Buffeted by languorous Italian vistas and the emotional depth of the characters, the film falls more into the Nancy Meyers camp of rom com, in which relatable late-in-life romances are played out against sumptuous settings." ‐Film Comment Magazine

The Thief of Bagdad (1924)

"The film's 149-minute running time might test the patience of even the most devout silent film fan, but the decadent costumes, elaborate sets, and Fairbanks's copious talents provide more than enough baroque pleasure to pass the time." ‐Film Comment Magazine

Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God (2012)

"Well done and compelling, and at its strongest when focusing on the bravery of these four deaf men who broke the silence." ‐Film Comment Magazine
