Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/4 100% A Stray (2016) In addition to being a tender film about a man finding redemption in caring for a canine, Syeed's pious film is refreshing, showing us a corner of America that we never see. ‐

2/4 85% A Sinner in Mecca (2015) My true frustration about Sharma's film is that beneath the diversions, it contains the material for what could have been something as controversial, powerful, and tender as he seemed to wish. ‐

4/4 100% Valley Of Saints (2015) "Valley of Saints" is a quiet tapestry of such colorful beauty that it had me sighing and smiling through every scene. ‐

4/4 96% These Birds Walk (2013) Gosh, I love this film. Its every moment touches my heart. ‐

3.5/4 88% Not Yet Begun to Fight (2013) Running only an hour, this documentary is as emotionally heavy as almost anything twice as long. ‐

3/4 54% The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2013) As the story unfolds, new dimensions change our perceptions of the central characters, sometimes for better, and occasionally for worse. The point is that every character and every setting has at least two sides. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 93% No (2013) García Bernal quietly carries this film as a soft-spoken kid in blue jeans and untucked shirt. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 7, 2013
2/4 47% The Sweeney (2013) Somewhere in the laundry list of clichés, there is a movie here that we have already seen and forgotten. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

4/4 93% The Gatekeepers (2013) The film makes explicit and implicit endorsements. The strategy of vengeance and overkill is ineffective and leads Israel to horrific behavior described only through metaphor. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Feb 21, 2013
3/4 67% Lost In Thailand (2013) This film races with such high energy that the humor continues to satisfy, if only because the characters are so likeable. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Feb 8, 2013
3.5/4 100% Stolen Seas (2013) A documentary of such ambitious scope that you might need a remote control and a notebook to keep up with it. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Feb 7, 2013
3.5/4 88% Not Yet Begun to Fight (2013) Running only an hour, this documentary is as emotionally heavy as almost anything twice as long. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 No Score Yet In The Hive (2012) Duncan commands our attention in a way he rarely had the chance to in his career. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Jan 31, 2013
3/4 89% Consuming Spirits (2012) It is the story of people in a small ordinary town, knowing nothing but their ordinary affairs, revealing their sins and crimes with an ordinary negligence. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3.5/4 94% The Trouble with the Truth (2012) Jim Hemphill's "The Trouble with the Truth" is a pleasant surprise that gets better as the movie unfolds. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 88% Somewhere Between (2012) Watching this movie, I feel the need to run to the mall or someplace, and find a Chinese baby to hug. Or, at least, I can hug my own daughters. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times

3/4 27% Struck by Lightning (2013) What makes this film rise a bit above the pack is the recurring idea that everyone wants to leave their nests and fly high into the sky, but few are able. ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Jan 3, 2013
78% Mooz-lum (2011) I suspect the Muslim narratives of 9/11 will soon grow into its own genre, and this film is a very good start. ‐
