89% Cast Away (2000) Wilson jokes aside, Robert Zemeckis's Castaway is a surprisingly haunting movie about what it's like to be alone on a deserted island for a very long time. - Vice EDIT

2.5/4 75% Disneynature Chimpanzee (2012) Combines breathtaking wildlife footage with silly, self-conscious voiceover narration aimed at preschoolers. - Boston Phoenix EDIT

3/4 No Score Yet Anita (2009) Much of the credit is due to Ms. Manzo, whose performance is so authentically realized that it eclipses Carnevale's uneven art design and occasionally clunky camerawork. - Boston Phoenix EDIT

1.5/4 7% Losing Control (2012) With its labored parade of polygamists, neurotic Jewish parents, and projectile semen explosions, Control offers nothing new. This one should have stayed in a test tube. - Boston Phoenix EDIT
