Sometimes a Great Notion (Never Give an Inch) (1971)

3:10 to Yuma (1957)

"A portrait of storytelling made for and by the Silent Generation, an audience all too familiar with the world's spooky, white-knuckled moral twilight." ‐Time Out

That's What I Am (2011)

"Lessons are learned, bullies get their comeuppance, and every Wonder Years plot device is trotted out for maximum and-I-was-never-the-same-again nostalgia." ‐Time Out

Sequestro (kidnapping) (2010)

"There are riveting moments, especially in tastefully shot interviews with former captives, who quietly describe their physical and psychological torture." ‐Time Out

Marmaduke (2010)

John Rabe (2010)

TiMER (2010)

"The lukewarm female talk occasionally grates and the men are portrayed as mind-numbingly simplistic, but on the whole this cyber-Cupid exercise is surprisingly affecting." ‐Time Out

A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

The Square (2010)

"All the genre's conventions -- femme fatale, shady goons, best-laid plans spiraling out of control -- have a proper amount of verve and flair to make the whole package feel almost fresh." ‐Time Out

Donne-moi la main (Give Me Your Hand) (2009)

"What's refreshing about Pascal-Alex Vincent's dramatically thin but richly atmospheric feature debut is that it recognizes the essential truth of the conceit: all seminal voyages are journeys of heightened awareness, as visceral as they are emotional." ‐Time Out

Wolke Neun (Cloud 9) (2008)

"This romance is powerful in fits and starts, capturing a golden-ager sensuality that almost never gets screen time -- at least not with this sort of unsentimental candor." ‐Time Out

Nothing But the Truth (2008)

"There's a halfway point when the rush of watching the inner machinations of power players turns into the listless predictability of a TV courtroom drama, crossed with the voyeurism of a mild grindhouse prison movie." ‐Time Out

The Elephant King (2006)

"Naïveté drives the characters and the filmmaking -- a lethal combination for a movie that's desperate to come across as world-weary and wise." ‐Time Out

Forever Strong (2008)

"American rugby is the setting for this earnest sausage party of macho posturing, bro-dacious life lessons and value-focused sportsmanship that give wayward teens the strength to rise above sinful temptations." ‐Time Out

CSNY Déjà Vu (2008)

"Neil Young rolls the cameras on himself and geriatric bandmates David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash as they tenaciously cling to social relevance by generally preaching to the converted during their 2006 antiwar Freedom of Speech tour." ‐Time Out

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2007)

Kung Fu Panda (2008)
