Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 45% You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010) At once a cynical examination of infidelity and a sweet love story that rewards good people, Stranger is thoroughly entertaining ... and Allen's best film since Crimes and Misdemeanors. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Oct 7, 2010
1/4 53% I'm Still Here (2010) Since Phoenix spends half the film with his head down, mumbling and shirtless, I'm Still Here is literally (and figuratively) an exercise in navel-gazing. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

58% Art & Copy (2009) Art & Copy offers an intriguing -- some might say frightening -- glimpse into the world that has prompted a generation of Americans to religiously tune into the Super Bowl just to watch those short movies that sell product. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

1/4 44% Chandni Chowk To China (2009) Chandni Chowk to China supposedly is the 'the first-ever Bollywood kung-fu comedy,' which makes me pray fervently that it will also be the last. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 15, 2009
4/4 100% Anita O'Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer (2007) The incomparable songbird is finally given her due in one of the greatest music documentaries I've ever seen. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Dec 12, 2008
1.5/4 No Score Yet Garrison Keillor: The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes (2008) The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes is an utterly pedantic TV documentary inexplicably given life on the big screen. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Oct 30, 2008
2/4 56% Bab'Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Own Soul (2008) It is neither engaging nor enlightening. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 11, 2008
3/4 54% Explicit Ills (2009) It's the best reflection of inner city life, and its effect on children, since Charles Burnett's 1977 drama Killer of Sheep. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 28, 2008
2.5/4 66% Brick Lane (2008) As the plot unfolds, it becomes apparent that director Sarah Gavron also finds attractive people more sympathetic, and this is Brick Lane's undoing. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 11, 2008
3.5/4 96% Bigger, Stronger, Faster* (2008) Bigger, Stronger, Faster* is that rare film that truly challenges its audience. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 6, 2008
0/4 20% A Plumm Summer (2008) This might be palatable if it weren't also fraught with leaden direction and horrible acting -- it's a painful thing when William Baldwin's the best actor you've got. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 25, 2008
3.5/4 No Score Yet Bitter Sweetheart (2007) Eschewing the usual teen clichés and filled with a wonderful cast of young actors, Bitter Sweetheart is a gem whose honesty makes Juno seem positively prudish. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 17, 2008
3/4 73% Under the Same Moon (2008) Under the Same Moon, despite some mature themes, is fine family entertainment. It is a crowd pleaser in the best sense of the word, compelling, humorous and profoundly moving. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 3, 2008
1/4 51% Nim's Island (2008) A slapdash amalgam of competing visual and storytelling styles, bizarre acting, egregious product placement (particularly for National Geographic) and negative stereotypes. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 3, 2008
3/4 No Score Yet African Adventure: Safari in the Okavango (2007) African Adventure 3D: Safari in the Okavango is ostensibly yet another eye-popping Imax travelogue, but much to my surprise it's also a treatise on how to make movies. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Mar 20, 2008
2/4 77% Paranoid Park (2007) Alex goes to school, has a girlfriend, eats junk food ... and is almost as much of a zombie as anything George A. Romero has ever conjured up. Only less appealing. ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
