Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% The Work (2017) No filmmaker could have written a richer set of masculine archetypes as these real individuals represent, each equally totemic in his defining idiosyncrasies and in his historically male characteristics.‐ Austin Chronicle

58% Lemon (2017) Lachmann may be a Lemon, but this cerebral picture is just the opposite.‐ Austin Chronicle

No Score Yet Ramblin' Freak (2017) Few artists of Smith's age (he is 24 in the film) investigate their inner worlds with the flexibility of mind and vision demonstrated here.‐ Austin Chronicle

90% The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin (2017) There is nothing visually notable or narratively inspired in The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin.‐ Austin Chronicle

78% The Strange Ones (2018) Here is a film with ever-expanding mental boundaries, one which concludes as it opens: inconsequentially, unpredictably, and provocatively. ‐ Austin Chronicle

86% Walk With Me (2017) You may not come out of [Francis' and Pugh's] documentary wishing to join Plum Village, but the filmmakers leave you desperately wanting more time with it.‐ Austin Chronicle

83% Jean of the Joneses (2016) Highly visually controlled, snappily edited, and beautifully acted, Jean of the Joneses is a clever New York comedy about the Caribbean diaspora.‐ Austin Chronicle

No Score Yet Thank You, Del: The Story of the Del Close Marathon (2015) What makes the film an ultimately warm rendering of a life well lived are the acknowledged geniuses who credit Close for the inclusive, massive, and still-booming comedy community. ‐ Austin Chronicle

No Score Yet Shovel Buddies (2016) Shovel Buddies is a shallow small-town drama that strives for a dark quirkiness, but ends up burying any authenticity with tackiness.‐ Austin Chronicle

93% Little Sister (2016) Little Sister plays up its goofiness to prevent your being poisoned with melancholy - which the characters unanimously exhibit. Cynics among us will recognize this as a lovely comedy; but the cockeyed may consider it miserable.‐ Austin Chronicle

No Score Yet The Space in Between: Marina Abramovic and Brazil (2016) Ruminative and filled with stunning widescreen landscapes, the film stands several aesthetic rungs above HBO's 2012 doc, The Artist Is Present.‐ Austin Chronicle

20% The Arbalest (2016) Kalt's tragicomic arc plays like an episode of Mad Men directed by Uwe Boll.‐ Austin Chronicle
