Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 69% Greedy Lying Bastards (2013) A grab bag of environmentally related talking points that never quite congeals into an argument, let alone a prescription. ‐ Boston Globe
Posted Mar 7, 2013
3/5 84% lü cao di (2006) Less concerned with its plot, which is gossamer-thin and not terribly involving, than with describing the nature of the lives these inhabitants of the remote steppe lead. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2006
1/5 24% Autumn (2006) An unsavory pastiche of the familiar and the overdone, flavored with faux-pungent, existential, interminable dialogue. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 9, 2006
3/5 73% Cavite (2006) The film is a tender, unflinching look at the brutal conditions of life in the Philippines, its sympathy for its accidental subjects intertwined with a flexible, on-the-fly mode of filmmaking. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 3, 2006
2/5 89% Sir! No Sir! (2006) In seeking to express its outrage over the Vietnam War, Sir! No Sir! loses its moral compass, conflating dissidence and traitorousness, and confusing friends with the enemies of their enemies. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 20, 2006
3/5 91% Te doy mis ojos (Take My Eyes) (2006) We emerge worn but wiser, having stepped, if only momentarily, and secondarily, into the shoes of the brutalized. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 23, 2006
2/5 50% Blossoms of Fire (2006) ... Gosling's film borrows Herzog's taste for the unfamiliar and exotic without its concomitant saving grace: his wry cynicism. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 22, 2006
2/5 60% Little Man (2005) The film leaves viewers with the odd sensation of having peered into the most intimate details of other people's lives, without acquiring much beyond surface impressions.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 6, 2005
2/5 63% The Swenkas (2005) Ronde has clearly stumbled onto a terrific subject for a documentary, but having done that, he has little idea what to do with it. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 11, 2005
1/5 51% In Praise Of Love (Éloge de l'amour) (2002) Gives the impression of a man who has lost his will to make movies, and even to go on living, a sentiment difficult to empathize with without likewise giving up on life. ‐ Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
3/5 86% The Way We Laughed (1998) It's a damn impressive trick to build a film around narrative frustration and not cause your audience to run out screaming. ‐ Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
2/5 81% The Man Who Wasn't There (2001) The resulting hodgepodge is a medley of the brothers' favorite verbal and visual tics, making much noise and signifying nothing. ‐ Film Threat
Posted Dec 8, 2002
3/5 71% The Town Is Quiet (La Ville est tranquille) (2001) Strives toward greatness, toward a complete understanding of life in the roiling, unsettled, complex locale they call Marseilles, and its partial success must be applauded. ‐ Film Threat
