Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
92% Volver (2006) Though it may seem churlish to knock a film-maker whose only crime has been a naked desire to please audiences, Volver really is one of Pedro Almodóvar's weaker efforts. ‐ Sight and Sound

71% The Cider House Rules (1999) What's bizarre about the movie is how it grafts greeting-card schmaltz on to a muckraking liberal agenda. ‐ Sight and Sound

68% Dancer in the Dark (2000) The situations that writer-director Lars von Trier serves up here might be embarrassingly florid, but the coupling of his manipulative skills and Björk's showy intensity results in a movie with the force of an emotional bulldozer. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Dec 2, 2002
81% One Hour Photo (2002) The craftsmanship is so strenuously neat that every frame should be awarded a gold star, but there isn't a breath of spontaneous life. ‐ Sight and Sound

85% An Ideal Husband (1999) Moore gives the best display of female Machiavellianism since Bette Davis held court over The Little Foxes. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 3, 2002
54% The Faculty (1998) The Faculty consistently draws attention to its own ill-joined cracks and seams. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 3, 2002
65% Bread and Roses (2001) Yet in a period of stylistic ostentation, Loach's modest transparency of means is salutary. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted May 30, 2001
63% Ride With the Devil (1999) While the movie intermittently revs up for some showy combat scenes, its real métier is a texture of fine-grained observation that brings history to life on the molecular level. ‐ Sight and Sound
