Farewell to Raskolnikov's (2005)

"Nothing in the story rings true, either as a publishing fable or as a mating lesson." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Provoked (2007)

"Unfortunately, syrupy music, reductive characterizations and bland cinematography turn her case into an earnest feminist fable that plays like an afterschool special for grown-ups. (Call it the anti-Longford.)" ‐ L.A. Weekly

Absolute Wilson (2006)

"Wilson is the prime example of what happens when money is continually thrown at a voracious ego -- its creative universe keeps expanding until the money stops. One problem is that most of Wilson's works don't 'snapshot' very well as excerpts." ‐ L.A. Weekly

The L.A. Riot Spectacular (2005)

"The gags are mortally unfunny." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Following Sean (2006)

"Part of the film's charm lies in its evocation of a generational mural that includes old Marxists, flower children and the progeny of red-diaper babies." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea (2004)

"Historically thorough and thoroughly hysterical." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Derailroaded (2005)

"In spite of its sympathy, Derailroaded veers into reality-TV voyeurism." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Oil Factor: Behind the War on Terror (2005)

"In their quest to connect as many dots as possible (Halliburton, depleted uranium, civilian war deaths), Ungerman and Brohy spread themselves a little thin across the map of U.S. intrigue." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Bewitched (2005)

"The film's funny for 15 minutes as it skewers Hollywood and prowls block after block of familiar L.A. scenery. After that, with a twitch of the nose, all plot vanishes." ‐ L.A. Weekly

Keep the River on Your Right (2000)

"The Shapiros ... ultimately reveal a frail but mentally robust old man whose gnawing hunger for knowledge led him to shun a safe, comfortable career in art for a series of radically transformative experiences at the world's edges." ‐ L.A. Weekly

The Man Who Wasn't There (2001)

"The Coens have resurrected a hardscrabble California of wooden porches and gravel driveways, of rolling, oak-wreathed hills and one-lane roads, and of a restless people whose meager dreams are wrecked the moment money, sex or a bottle get in the way." ‐ L.A. Weekly
