Lymelife (2008)

"At no point did I feel bored or condescended to, and even though the ending may be overwrought, it had me gripping my chair." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Lymelife (2008)

"Rory Culkin does more than hold his own in this high-powered cast. He shows the angst of a teenage boy, but also the resilience. There is a sweetness to this film that keeps the darkness at bay." ‐Houston Chronicle

Goodbye Solo (2009)

"The movie starts fast and the pace rarely relents. Goodbye Solo is almost frighteningly alive: Other filmmakers must wonder exactly how Ramin Bahrani packs so much personality in what could have been standard indie fare." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Hunger (2009)

"It's horrific. But Hunger displays uncommon intelligence and visual panache, transcending the goal of making the situation seem real. It feels more than real. It's art." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Tokyo Sonata (Tokyo Sonata) (2009)

"Tokyo Sonata is a bit overwrought, especially in the final act, but it is beautifully shot, features moving performances by the well-chosen cast and has the unity of vision that is the hallmark of an auteur." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Tokyo! (2008)

"The overall project succeeds at offering three tantalizing films for the price of one movie ticket." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Throw Down Your Heart (2008)

"It's an entertaining journey, and director Sascha Paladino injects humor and pathos into the musical sequences." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Absurdistan (2008)

"Makes for a lovely hour and a half of old-fashioned storytelling." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Under the Sea 3D (2009)

"Oceanic movies in actual science museums are far more interesting and nuanced than this documentary -- not to mention the wildly popular Planet Earth series, which even in 2-D looks better." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009)

"Could there be a worse time to revisit the indulgences of the '00s?" ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Fanboys (2008)

"Uninspired and only faintly funny." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Yonkers Joe (2009)

"Yonkers Joe is incoherent, succeeding neither as an exciting gambling ride nor a touching family story." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Bride Wars (2009)

"In these recessionary times, it's not just misogynistic to assume that intelligent women turn into feral dogs at the sight of a Tiffany gift box, but it's also beside the point." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Antarctica (2008)

"It's fun to see attractive people get together and fall apart." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

My Name Is Bruce (2007)

"Light as air, My Name Is Bruce is good for a mild chuckle, not a belly laugh. As any Campbell fan knows, managing expectations is key to getting the most from his work." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Were the World Mine (2008)

"Were the World Mine follows the teen musical formula but renders its material with admirable lushness and intelligence." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Let the Right One In (2008)

"Let the Right One In strikes a surprising array of notes: scary, sad and hopeful." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Loins of Punjab Presents (2007)

"It's frightfully formulaic, with nary a twist or turn on the patented mockumentary form." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Nov 7, 2008
2/4 73%

Peur(s) du Noir (Fear(s) of the Dark) (2007)

"Fear(s) of the Dark is a feast for the eyes, even if it doesn't always get the pulse racing." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 31, 2008
4/4 85%

Frontrunners (2008)

"The film sets just the right tone: with inventive music choices and wonderfully piquant moments plucked from what must have been hundreds of hours of footage, Frontrunners is consistently entertaining." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Quid Pro Quo (2008)

"Its biggest mystery is how it was financed (by Texas trillionaire and Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban, no less) and selected for distribution." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Henry Poole Is Here (2008)

"Although the ending is unsurprising, Henry Poole remains an interesting character." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Ashes of Time Redux (2008)

"Elliptical, sweeping, lovely and thoroughly confusing, Ashes of Time Redux is not a film to rent. It's well worth paying to see it on the big screen." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 17, 2008

Sex Drive (2008)

"Some jokes work, some don't and, frankly, I can't remember either, but it leaves a sweet aftertaste. Slight, but sweet." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

A Thousand Years of Good Prayers (2008)

"This modest and lovely film is a welcome reprieve after the explosion-filled slate of summer movies." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Nights in Rodanthe (2008)

"The film tastefully yet unenergetically chugs along." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Battle in Seattle (2008)

"The characters in Battle in Seattle are often crudely drawn, and the able actors struggle with canned lines." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Traitor (2008)

"Traitor delivers plot twists but few real surprises." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Man on Wire (2008)

"Man on Wire, the delightful documentary about French tightrope walker Philippe Petit's incroyable early-morning trip between the World Trade Center towers in 1974, is an interesting film to watch from the front row." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Bottle Shock (2008)

"It lacks the character and depth of a product whose value increases with age. In other words, it's no Chateau Montelena '73 Chardonnay." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

1000 Journals (2007)

"1000 Journals has a catchy hook, and Kreuzhage showed tenacity in following many difficult trails, but the movie plods." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Bustin' Down the Door (2008)

"The film tries to tell us that money hasn't spoiled the fun, but I was much more curious about the black shorts than the Quicksilver brand board shorts." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 1, 2008
2/4 55%

Step Brothers (2008)

"Reilly jumps into his role with the zeal of a Method actor -- no fear about sporting tiny underroos for the bulk of his screen time -- but he sometimes comes off as more scary than funny." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 94%

Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006)

"It attempts no improvements on the basic suspense formula. It just does everything really well: perfect pacing, lovely camera work, spot-on acting and an ingenious plot." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

War, Inc. (2008)

"Like the smart weapon technology it mocks, War, Inc. aims at the right targets but misfires so severely that even the clever details get obliterated in the resulting mess." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Bigger, Stronger, Faster* (2008)

"Bell posits that their disillusionment is a side effect of being American and he may well be right." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Dark Matter (2008)

"There is nothing wrong with taking inspiration from actual events, but it's a tricky business, and Dark Matter does no one right by sticking to the shocking conclusion." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
