Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
30% The Children of Huang Shi (2008) A film whose gorgeous cinematography and endearing subject matter almost mask its mediocrity. ‐ New York Press
Posted May 21, 2008
89% Auf der Anderen Seite (The Edge of Heaven) (On the Other Side) (2007) [Director] Akin captures his characters' movements, both physical and emotional, with poetic fluidity. ‐ New York Press
Posted May 21, 2008
50% Then She Found Me (2007) April and Frank are mired in angst, for no discernable reason, other than having the misfortune of being stuck in a downer of a movie. ‐ New York Press

96% Up the Yangtze (2007) With all these lyrical elements in play, [director Yung] Chang's extraneous voiceover narration is baffling, and all but unbearable. ‐ New York Press
Posted Apr 16, 2008
79% Body of War (2008) With all this fascinating real-life material to work with, it's frustrating that the directors choose to devote half of the movie to well-worn archival footage of members of congress debating the decision to invade Iraq in 2002. ‐ New York Press
Posted Apr 9, 2008
25% Drillbit Taylor (2008) Its comedy falls flat, and the film has a violent core where its heart should be. ‐ New York Press
Posted Mar 26, 2008
81% Priceless (2006) [Actor Gad] Elmaleh is the soul of Priceless, and watching his comedic chops is the highlight of this snappy, joyous ride. ‐ New York Press
Posted Mar 26, 2008
73% Under the Same Moon (2008) The specific story, while formulaic, is carried soulfully by its three main actors, who make Under the Same Moon a success despite its flaws. ‐ New York Press
Posted Mar 19, 2008
95% Sputnik Fever (Sputnik Mania) (2007) Sputnik Mania is not riveting; but it is, first and last, informative. ‐ New York Press
Posted Mar 12, 2008
69% Girls Rock! (2007) The pacing and tone of Girls Rock! match its subject perfectly. ‐ New York Press
Posted Mar 5, 2008
89% The Unforeseen (2008) We can appreciate the film's good intentions, but we can't shake the feeling that we've been talked down to, rather than informed. ‐ New York Press
Posted Feb 27, 2008
94% The Counterfeiters (2007) [Director] Ruzowitzky's straightforward approach to this unusual story and cinematographer Benedict Neunfels's documentary-style immediacy transcend the now well-worn Holocaust genre, bringing another side of the tragedy into unflinching focus. ‐ New York Press
Posted Feb 20, 2008
89% A Walk to Beautiful (2008) Lushly photographed and carried along by a spirited score featuring both Ethiopian and Western music, but the film's most striking element proves to be the women at its center. ‐ New York Press
