4.5/5 96% The Arbor (2011) This film, which may seem like a niche-interest documentary at first glance, is rich in structural and stylistic innovation of great importance to the genre.‐ What Culture

2.5/5 58% It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) It's also a kind of two-dimensional romance, a kind of flippant look at life on a mental ward, and (...) kind of made me want to give Zach Galifianakis a hug.‐ What Culture

2/5 34% I Spit On Your Grave (2010) Gory and violent without really hitting home in either a visceral or meaningful way, and there are chunks that are actually quite dull.‐ What Culture

2/5 46% Hereafter (2010) So ridiculous was Hereafter that I laughed out loud several times at the ill thought-out, quasi-spiritualist philosophy it vomited from the screen.‐ What Culture

3/5 71% Paul (2011) A decent take on the usual Pegg/Frost bromance, and a welcome return to the level of geekery that plays to their strengths, Paul entertains without excelling.‐ What Culture
