Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Farewell to Raskolnikov's (2005) Nothing in the story rings true, either as a publishing fable or as a mating lesson.‐ L.A. Weekly

29% 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

76% 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

86% 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

96% Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea (2004) Historically thorough and thoroughly hysterical.‐ L.A. Weekly

82% Derailroaded (2005) In spite of its sympathy, Derailroaded veers into reality-TV voyeurism.‐ L.A. Weekly

83% One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern (2005) [A] surprisingly thorough film.‐ L.A. Weekly

3.5/5 50% 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

25% 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

78% 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

81% 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
