Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
84% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) The film's inoffensive simplicity suggests finger-painting, and offers about as much sophistication in terms of character development and theme. ‐ RogerEbert.com

89% One Floor Below (2015) The key to appreciating "One Floor Below" is to keep in mind that it takes place in a country still troubled by its past. ‐ RogerEbert.com

3.5/4 91% Something, Anything (2014) The kind of movie you feel protective of even as you are watching it. Its rhythms and inflections are so subtle, it almost comes as a surprise just how compelling they ultimately become. ‐ RogerEbert.com

4/4 93% Stranger by the Lake (2014) "Stranger by the Lake" is the sexiest and most elegant thriller in years, and it's a damn shame it stands so little chance of traveling beyond the niche of a "gay film" it will probably get squeezed into. ‐ RogerEbert.com

13% Arthur 2: On the Rocks (1988) Suggests an imaginary episode of All in the Family in which Archie Bunker goes out of his way to start a neighborhood branch of a gay-straight alliance, or a Looney Tunes short wherein Pepé Le Pew gets fixed. ‐ House Next Door

2/4 48% I'm So Excited! (2013) The set is obviously and intentionally fake, but instead of creating a sense of make-believe, it actually burdens the film and gives it a clinical air that's rather suffocating. ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 3, 2013
36% Big Business (1988) It may be Midler's ultimate vehicle, allowing the actress to wildly embrace her talent for both shrill bombast and that sensitive eagerness for life and pleasure that stoked her career-making performance in The Rose. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jun 5, 2013
11% Crocodile Dundee II (1988) The sequel exacerbates problems already too evident in the first movie, most painfully the near-total disposability of Kozlowski's Sue, who spends most of the time reacting to Mick's quirks with chuckles. ‐ House Next Door
Posted May 15, 2013
2.5/4 44% The Door (2012) Visually, there's an elegance to "The Door" that feels both a virtue and a limitation. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 21, 2013
3.5/4 68% The We and the I (2013) A vivid snapshot of an interracial group of teenagers as they take a bus ride home on the last day of school. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 14, 2013
3.5/4 No Score Yet Toata lumea din familia noastra (Everybody in Our Family) (2013) A violent, funny and disconcerting vision of a familial argument turned into actual slugfest. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Feb 28, 2013
95% A Hijacking (2013) As much a nail-biting thriller as an experiment in narrative dualism. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Nov 3, 2012
45% The Comedy (2012) Programmatically joyless, more cringe-inducing than laugh-drawing, Rick Alverson's The Comedy does everything it possibly can to disclaim its title. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Mar 12, 2012
94% Room 237 (2013) As parts of The Shining are played over and over again, accompanied by a nonstop commentary by its devotees, Room 237 manages to build up a vertiginous, slightly queasy momentum all its own. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 26, 2012
56% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) The movie is a garish, bitchy, and mostly flat-out unfunny examination of how selling sex doesn't make one an expert in dealing with it in one's own life. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 25, 2012
65% 2 Days in New York (2012) Delpy is expert at pushing generic buttons and serving stale jokes as if she has just come up with them between her morning bagel and an afternoon brioche. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 25, 2012
90% Keep the Lights On (2012) It's very rare that a viewer gets a sense of movie characters' erotic bonds morphing over the years while remaining basically unyielding. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 24, 2012
86% Bestiaire (2012) Denis Côté's images are so ostensibly detached, they somehow manage to be beautiful without ever becoming particularly pleasant to look at. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 24, 2012
94% The House I Live In (2012) Jarecki is both compassionate and myopic. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 23, 2012
66% For Ellen (2012) eature, For Ellen, while certainly not an abject failure, is a disappointment nevertheless, and may cause concern to all those to whom the director's 2006 debut, In Between Days, was as dear as it remains to this ‐ House Next Door
Posted Jan 23, 2012
73% Simon Killer (2013) Stunningly daring, refreshingly adventurous, and impossible to shake off. ‐ House Next Door
