T-Meter Title | Year
78% Edge of Seventeen (1999) It'll resonate with anyone who remembers the awkwardness and elation of their first sexual experiences, because it captures those experiences better and more honestly than practically any other film. - AV Club EDIT

No Score Yet The House That Screamed (La Residencia) (1971) It's intimate and unsettling, just as it is in all the best horror films. - AV Club EDIT

C- 49% A Single Shot (2013) It's largely just an opportunity for the actors to try on Ozark-y mannerisms, swig moonshine, and hock loogies. And like most exercises in authenticity, it couldn't be more inauthentic if it tried. - AV Club EDIT

C+ 89% Informant (2013) Meltzer hasn't unearthed enough fresh material, and he hasn't dug deeply enough into Darby's near-sociopathic opportunism. - AV Club EDIT

D+ 19% Winnie Mandela (2013) Winnie Mandela is maybe the closest a movie has come to a series of commemorative plates. - AV Club EDIT

B 40% American Made Movie (2013) It's a strong subject, one that hasn't been fully explored in a theatrical doc, and writer Ryan C. Wilson and directors Nathaniel Thomas McGill and Vincent Vittorio do a solid if unexceptional job of tackling it. - AV Club EDIT

D- 67% Scenic Route (2013) Is there a worse cinematic punishment than a two-hander featuring dull, unsympathetic twits bickering for an hour and a half? - AV Club EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2013
C- 55% When Comedy Went to School (2013) It's the squarest of square love letters, and it plays like one of those bland, slick History Channel specials. - AV Club EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2013
D- 6% Evidence (2013) There have been a lot of shoddy found-footage flicks over the past few years, but maybe none quite so shoddy as this. - AV Club EDIT

B- 83% Terms And Conditions May Apply (2013) Terms And Conditions may not be a particularly well-made doc, but it provides a much-needed wake-up call. - AV Club EDIT
