Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring (2003) The floating monastery strikes one, at first, as far too empty a stage for a movie of any length, but it becomes, in the end, a meditation on walls, rules and memory, on the keeping out and the keeping in of life.‐ Washington Post

44% Connie and Carla (2004) A grim twist on Some Like It Hot, with a few limp strands of Thelma & Louise all stiffened up with a bit too much Hairspray.‐ Washington Post
Posted Apr 16, 2004
36% Radio (2003) A train wreck of a film lying inert where the tracks of the Feel Good Line cross the Path of Good Intentions.‐ Washington Post

53% Veronica Guerin (2003) Captures an impressive performance from [Cate] Blanchett.‐ Washington Post

68% The Same River Twice (2003) If you can get past the Big Chill setup, there is a fine piece of moviemaking here.‐ Washington Post

72% Bonhoeffer (2003) There is both spiritual and historical substance in the things said, and such obvious reverence for the subject, that the film ultimately has a charming charmlessness.‐ Washington Post

78% Holes (2003) One can't help but feel thankful that the movie doesn't always go the expected route, that the characters have a little more depth to them than average, and that the complexity, which is the movie's basic weakness, is also its fundamental virtue.‐ Washington Post
Posted Apr 18, 2003
50% The Safety of Objects (2001) A movie that never finds a consistent tone.‐ Washington Post
Posted Mar 7, 2003
82% Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony (2003) Viewers will leave Amandla! moved by the music, impressed by the musicians and dubious about the possibility of political and social healing.‐ Washington Post
Posted Mar 7, 2003
94% The Pinochet Case (2002) It will take a strong stomach for the ordinary viewer to maintain an appetite for Pinochet apologetics after this litany of suffering.‐ Washington Post
Posted Dec 13, 2002
2.5/5 11% Bride of the Wind (2001) For all its sobriety, it adds very little new to the record, and it takes few speculative chances.‐ Washington Post
