Captain Abu Raed (2007)

"Eager, earnest and ultimately a little too easy on the conscience, Amin Matalqa's Jordanian melodrama is social commentary with the gloss of classical Italian drama." ‐Time Out

Earth Days (2009)

"Earth Days has a lot to say about the minor victories of the past. It's too bad that the film ends at the dawn of the 1980s -- all but ignoring the most important chapter of this ongoing saga." ‐Time Out

Fragments (2008)

"The anxiety is deafening in this flimsy symphony of shattered lives, which -- like that confounding Oscar winner Crash -- confuses entropy for empathy." ‐Time Out

California Company Town (2008)

"[Director] Schmitt wisely allows the images to speak loudest -- a silent, sobering portrait of what happens after the well dries up." ‐Time Out

The Way We Get By (2009)

"Though Aron Gaudet's documentary never quite captures the relieved atmosphere of these homecomings, it does acknowledge the dark side of a cheery platitude: those on both sides of the divide are in need of healing." ‐Time Out

Death in Love (2009)

"Survivor's guilt jumps a generation in Boaz Yakin's bleak family portrait, an incendiary journey back into the psychic horrors of the Holocaust." ‐Time Out

Local Color (2006)

"The sweeping landscapes look flawless, but missing from Local Color's canvas is any nuance in its human elements." ‐Time Out

The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story (2009)

"Directors Gregory and Jeffrey Sherman, sons of the composers, have set themselves such a furious pace in parsing the full chronology that we only skim the surface of the Poppins near-disaster." ‐Time Out
