Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% Heathers (1988) If there's a weakness of motivation in Heathers, it may be because the whole film is rather dream-like, a product of Veronica's fevered writing and imaginings, with a consequent chaos and interchangeability of roles.‐ Sight and Sound

96% Jafar Panahi's Taxi (2015) [Panahi] presents us with an infinite regression of setups, touching on both his own movies and the difficulties for any filmmaker of addressing Iranian 'reality.'‐ Film Comment Magazine
