No Score Yet Ingrid (2018) Ingrid is a intimate and fascinating portrait of an equally fascinating person, one that in many ways we might strive to be.‐ ScreenAnarchy

95% Outside In (2018) [Outside In] is one of Shelton's strongest films, one in which she explores some darker territory without losing the heart of the matter.‐ ScreenAnarchy

95% November (2018) A fairy tale, a cautionary tale, a magical dreamland, a dark comedy, a feverish yet cold nightmare.‐ ScreenAnarchy

54% The Lodgers (2018) While the intent of the fearsome creatures is a little on-the-nose, the atmosphere created is creepy enough to get deep under your skin.‐ ScreenAnarchy

No Score Yet Fish Bones (2018) [Director] Mony Park gives us some poignant, and some seemingly ordinary moments; but these are the moments that often meet side by side...where both the big and small revelations occur. ‐ ScreenAnarchy

48% Marrowbone (2018) A film that encourages multiple viewings in order to unpack its layers and secrets.‐ ScreenAnarchy

91% Revenge (2018) I'll admit, I've always had a hard time with rape-revenge thrillers... but [Revenge] asks us to look deeper, especially in the behaviour of women which is often considered worthy of blame when there should be none.‐ ScreenAnarchy

44% Yomeddine (2018) Yomeddine... gives us a true story, the one that we need to be reminded of every now and then.‐ ScreenAnarchy

87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Ramsay gives us a laser-focused thriller closer to Herman Melville than the usual Hollywood fare.‐ ScreenAnarchy

67% Wild Grass (Les Herbes Folles) (2010) A glorious mix of comedy and fantasy, Resnais is improving with age, creating characters that probably are a reflection of his view on the world, with his experience and charm.‐ Dork Shelf

No Score Yet The Vintner's Luck (2011) But ultimately the film, like a vintage bottle, is left too long and turns to vinegar.‐ Dork Shelf

91% Fish Tank (2010) Arnold's script and camera close in and tear apart ideas of the poor, youth, and what makes a good man.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
83% Bright Star (2009) In a world where only Hollywood cinematic romance is acceptable, it is a risk that pays off.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
67% Solomon Kane (2012) Bassett brings to the screen Solomon Kane...with all due seriousness and gravity, as apparently befits the character.‐ Dork Shelf

41% Air Doll (Kûki ningyô) (2009) Even the climactic conclusion, while interesting enough, failed to resonate the way Koreeda's other films have.‐ Dork Shelf

69% [Rec] 2 (2010) There are fewer frightening moments [than the original], but the ones that do come are all the more frightening from the build-up of tension.‐ Dork Shelf

67% Manson, My Name Is Evil (2009) Complemented by solid performances by the rest of the cast, Harkema creates a campy yet believable society.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
81% A Town Called Panic (Panique au village) (2009) Bizarre and sophisticated enough for adults and children, A Town Called Panic makes you want to live in an upside-down house occupied by a horse.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
71% Enter the Void (Soudain le vide) (2010) This is not necessarily a film to love or hate though.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
87% White Material (2010) Denis creates both sympathy for and anger at Marie. She is not a stereotypical colonial overlord, yet her insistence on remaining borders on madness.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
64% TiMER (2010) A romantic comedy (with a dash of science fiction) that will certainly appeal to single women, the film is very original in concept, if not so much in execution.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet Cargo (2010) While it comes close to cliche, Cargo is still an effective film.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
78% Amer (2010) These directors succeed by creating a film which needs no plot in order to keep the viewer haunted and fascinated.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
76% Heartless (2010) Ridley lets the darkness permeate the space and filter into his characters, who are unable to prevent their own hearts from being eaten alive.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet Macabre (2013) The directors crank up the tension at just the right pace to keep the adrenaline pumping.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
50% Doghouse (2009) [Doghouse] certainly adds a fun new twist to the becoming-tired-at-lightning-speed zombie subgenre.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
86% Ddongpari (Breathless) (2009) A triumphant and intense debut.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet Shadow Play: The Making of Anton Corbijn (2009) Overall it is clear that for director Josh Whiteman this film is a labor of love. ‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
71% Sherlock Holmes (2009) [The director's] style works well with the script, which is, while perhaps not the most engaging story, interesting and fun enough to sustain the film.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
67% Daybreakers (2010) Michael and Peter Spierig have created a fascinating and chillingly believable possible future. ‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
79% Nowhere Boy (2010) Nowhere Boy ends up being a rather play-by-play biopic, saved by good performances and a great soundtrack.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
89% Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage (2010) As a film, there is little that is interesting or imaginative.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009) The film's almost constant tight focus on the mystery kept my palms sweating and my mind racing to try to interpret the clues myself. ‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
91% Disco and Atomic War (Disko ja tuumasoda) (2010) The film uses Kimli's personal story and his family's almost daily risk of arrest in an irreverent manner to look at the larger story of the USSR's hopeless attempt to control the hearts and minds of its citizens. ‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
75% The Parking Lot Movie (2010) The film is incredibly entertaining, managing to turn a seemingly mundane job into a source of philosophical thought and social experiment. ‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet David Wants To Fly (2010) The film is an odd and yet engaging combination of personal discovery and doc investigation.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet The Peddler (2010) The directors keep Burmeister in focus, but also his interactions with the community and the effect he has on them, as though he is a strange lightening rod for their energy.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
79% Blank City (2011) The film is brilliantly edited, cutting between interviews, clips from the films, and archival footage of clubs and parties. The aesthetics reflect the strange world she is examining.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
77% Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt And The Magnetic Fields (2010) Generally, any documentary about an artist is either going to be a labour of love or an exposé. This film certainly falls into the former category, particularly considering the time and care used to make it. ‐ Dork Shelf

75% Splice (2010) [Director Natali] treads the fine line of a film that is just believable enough to get the audience's attention, and sci-fi enough for us to think this could never happen. Or could it?‐ Dork Shelf

50% Suck (2010) Stefaniuk's directorial strengths lie in his creation of aesthetic...and mood. When the film is not self-conscious, it is extremely funny and while the subtext is noticeable, it's not overwhelming. ‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
80% This Movie Is Broken (2010) As a concert film, This Movie is Broken is a great tribute that should find its way into the ranks of other great concert films. As a love story, the film only partially succeeds.‐ Dork Shelf

No Score Yet Black Lightning (Chyornaya Molniya) (2009) There is not necessarily anything very new in this film...However, this does not make it boring. On the contrary, its particular Russian take on the genre keeps it exciting‐ Dork Shelf

100% Fish Story (Fisshu sutori) (2013) Fish Story is a wonderful addition to the canon of Japanese mash-up films, and one that will leave you singing the title song long after you've left the theatre.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet Van Von Hunter (2010) A short of the story would have been great; a feature was almost unbearable.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
No Score Yet Eve's Necklace (2010) With a little more effort, the concept could have worked. Unfortunately, more often than not it fell flat.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
No Score Yet Yieutjib jombi (The Neighbor Zombie) (2011) Neighbor Zombie is a welcome addition to a rather stale genre.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
No Score Yet Bodyguards and Assassins (Shi yue wei cheng) (2010) Like so much junk food, it tastes good at the time and hits the spot but is forgotten a few hours later.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) In adapting the visual style [from the graphic novel], Wright smartly finds a way both to enhance it, while remaining true to the source material.‐ Dork Shelf
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
75% The Last Circus (2011) De la Iglesia has a particular talent for carrying his audience through his strange and visceral imagination, hardly letting a breath be taken and yet leaving them gasping for more.‐ Dork Shelf
