91% The Sopranos: Season 2 (TV, 2000) "As The Sopranos heads into season No. 2, writing remains crisp, photography is sharp and interesting, new characters lend intriguing plot twists and James Gandolfini continues to expertly play the most compelling character on series television. " ‐ Variety

100% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 4 (TV, 2004) "Larry David continues to push his semi-fictional character into the bowels of self-indulgence, but just when you think he's gone too deep, something reels him back in and Curb... retains its place as the funniest of the funny on television today. " ‐ Variety

100% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 3 (TV, 2002) "There is not a more infuriating and self-involved yet comically rich character on television than Larry David. His near-disdain for those outside his inner circle makes Curb Your Enthusiasm a hilarious blend of the bleak and the brilliant. " ‐ Variety

100% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 1 (TV, 2000) "The character Larry David plays in HBO's new 10-episode cinema verite comedy is self-absorbed, duplicitous, unnervingly off-balance and overcome by an extraordinary sense of self entitlement. No one has created a funnier TV character this fall. " ‐ Variety

100% Veronica Mars: Season 1 (TV, 2004-2005) "The smartest teen-oriented drama since Freaks and Geeks. A unique and inspired looked at teen angst shrouded in a P.I. show " ‐ Variety

40% Secret Diary of a Call Girl: Season 1 (TV, 2008) "The show has a smart approach, playing off staid British manners and a star character at peace with living on the wrong side of the law. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 16, 2008
71% Sun Ra: Space Is the Place (1974) "It's standard blaxploitation settings and elements -- crime fighters and criminals, pimps and hookers, a pool hall and a brothel -- but the presence of the Outer Space Employment Agency makes it extraordinary. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 8, 2008
94% My Name Is Albert Ayler (2008) "Brings a sense of logic and humanity to a man whose music was as unsettling as it was untethered to the tenets of jazz. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 5, 2008
43% What We Do Is Secret (2007) "A highly personal take on the ins and outs of creating and maintaining a band. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 22, 2007
No Score Yet Tyler Perry's House of Payne: Season 2 (TV, 2007-2008) "How [Perry] got the cabler to pony up for 100 episodes of such an uncharacteristically unfunny sitcom as House of Payne is worthy of a sitcom on its own. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 6, 2007
88% Dixie Chicks - Shut Up and Sing (2006) "It's the rare thorough documentary on a musical act whose dilemmas are faced in the here and now, one that should win over fans of the Chicks on the fence and of music docus and perhaps create a little cultural stir as well. " ‐ Variety

100% Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film (2006) "Blessed with all the trademarks of a Burns brothers documentary, Ric Burns' look at the life of Andy Warhol is well researched, packed with rarely seen footage and loaded with eloquent observations. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 31, 2006
77% The U.S. vs. John Lennon (2006) "The storyline follows the Ono-approved bio that posits Lennon as saint, excising his dark periods and their years apart, which could have enhanced the portrait. " ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 31, 2006
30% Herbie Hancock: Possibilities (2006) "Possibilities will likely draw in only the most hardcore of Hancock's fans. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 11, 2006
25% Criminal Minds: Season 1 (TV, 2005-2006) "Richard Shepard's poised direction sharply frames Jeff Davis' cut-and-dry script. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 22, 2005
93% No Direction Home: Bob Dylan (2005) "A document that will satiate Dylan fans over repeated viewings and should bring naysayers into the Dylan fold. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 12, 2005
79% American Experience (2004) "Smartly directed by Pat Paulson and Michael John Warren and nicely lensed, the material sufficiently establishes the rarefied air Jay-Z occupies. " ‐ Variety
Posted Nov 4, 2004
75% Hustle: Season 1 (TV, 2006) "AMC has imported a captivating look at con men that hits the small screen with the cinematic flair of recent grifter pics. " ‐ Variety
