Hounddog (2008)

"The whole distasteful mess is sunk up to its neck in a brew of Southern Gothic atmosphere and hocus-pocus sentimentality." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

2.5/4 74%

A Man Named Pearl (2008)

"In its own modest fashion, the film does capture a sense of the intuitive craftsmanship, pride and determination that drive the self-taught artist." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story (2008)

"Boogie Man has an awful lot to say about where America finds itself at the 2008 moment of decision." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Le fils de l'épicier (The Grocer's Son) (2008)

"The quiet, patient soulfulness of the film, which Guirado co-wrote with Florence Vignon, lingers." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Chop Shop (2008)

"In this clear-eyed, quietly absorbing film, director Ramin Bahrani opens up a wedge of Third World America that operates, all but invisibly, in plain sight." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

The Bank Job (2008)

"The movie plunges into this rank, choppy water and churns through it with a busily whirring story line and clear sense of purpose. The ride becomes its own satisfying reward, complete with the bumps and lurches along the way." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007)

"It all plays out as you know it must, right down to [Brian] Cox's narrative revelation at the end, but that doesn't diminish the sense of satisfaction this gratifying family entertainment delivers." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)

"Stylized but spasmodic, this Sweeney seems more interested in distancing than captivating an audience." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Fierce People (2005)

"There are lots of potent things floating around in it -- sexual initiation, drugs, fantasy-land wealth, brute violence, primitive rituals, Diane Lane and Donald Sutherland -- but the mix just sits there without producing any notable reactions." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Mr. Woodcock (2007)

"This film apparently sat around for a few years before being released. It's unlikely to make waves now, but Thornton and Scott do set off a few entertaining ripples." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Live-In Maid (2007)

"Live-In Maid is a modest chamber piece enriched by its affecting human harmonies and overtones." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 31, 2007
1.5/4 20%

Death Sentence (2007)

"Blunt, bloody and far too busy with its sledgehammer plot and mighty gunplay to waste time on the main character's inner life, Death Sentence is a baseline entertainment." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

4/4 98%

The Devil Came on Horseback (2007)

"An exceptionally powerful film driven by contradictory forces." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 24, 2007

La Vie en Rose (La Mome) (2007)

"La Vie en Rose is a life seen through a glass tinted darkly, with Cotillard glittering fiercely before the light goes out." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

POV (2006)

"Wrestling With Angels is a canny piece of filmmaking, sure to absorb both audiences familiar with Kushner's plays and those who know little or nothing about him." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Favela Rising (2005)

"... an uneven, spasmodic film." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Swimmers (2005)

"Well-observed but self-consciously studied family drama." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Ballets Russes (2005)

"A daisy chain of touching now-and-then moments." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Nov 4, 2005

Hearts & Minds (2009)

"The unnerving brilliance of the film owes to the director's skill at assembling information and allowing it to speak for itself." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

A Dirty Shame (2004)

"More catalog than comedy, a checklist of erotically twisted dysfunctions strung together to fill 89 minutes of chirpy, stylized screen time." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Standard Time (Anything But Love) (2002)

"This stylized romantic comedy offers limited, largely synthetic rewards." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

Luther (2003)

"For all its scope and detail, Luther fails to convey the sense of history moved by a compelling individual." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 26, 2003

Ni na bian ji dian (What Time Is It Over There?) (2001)

"The weight of the film's opaque, numbingly studied details ... is oppressive." ‐San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 57%

The Underneath (1995)

"The film may turn out to have been more of a stylistic adventure for the director than for an audience." ‐San Francisco Chronicle
