3/4 No Score Yet Warchild "Warchild, the second feature of German director Christian Wagner's Balkan Blues Trilogy, is one of those rare war films, like Apocalypse Now and Hiroshima Mon Amour, that makes brilliant use of symbolism. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3.5/4 98% Blindsight (2006) "Simultaneously a sports adventure film, a tear-jerking tale of hope and inspiration and a captivating meditation on culture clash. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

3/4 No Score Yet Passion & Power: The Technology of Orgasm (2007) "Passion & Power may lay it on too thick with its You Go, Girl! message, but in the end it does bring to life a remarkably amusing and strange secret history. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Feb 22, 2008
5/5 100% Taxi to the Dark Side (2007) "Will go down in film history as a damning historical document of the Bush administration's wartime expansion of executive powers. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Feb 8, 2008
3/4 81% The Business of Being Born (2008) "A powerful, frightening look at America's delivery room that makes a strong case for natural childbirth overseen by experienced midwives rather than by surgery-prone doctors. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jan 18, 2008
4/4 100% Have You Heard from Johannesburg?: Apartheid and the Club of the West (2010) "The documentary's rousing thesis is that American economic pressure can transform a nation halfway across the globe and do it in the name of liberty and equality. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Nov 2, 2007
3/4 86% L' Avocat de la Terreur (Terror's Advocate) (2007) "Jacques Verg├Ęs makes for compelling documentary film fodder: He is arrogant, cosmopolitan, politically unpredictable and enmeshed in the roots of modern international terrorism. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Nov 2, 2007
4/4 73% In the Valley of Elah (2007) "Elah does have moments of slipping into political sermon, but for the most part it is an effective, disturbing and -- a rarity for Haggis -- subtle exploration of the stateside war story. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 14, 2007
3/4 80% I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life And Legacy Of Simon Wiesenthal (2007) "The film dramatically shows how many of the criminals on Wiesenthal's lists were eventually sent to jail or died from heart attacks or suicide when they were at last located. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

2/4 78% Crazy Love (2007) "Among the weirdest explorations of connubial relationships since Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? And like Edward Albee's 1962 play, it leaves one feeling queasy about human nature. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Jun 8, 2007
1/4 41% The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004) "Now the fabricated story of a boyhood that included abandonment, rape and near constant fear and humiliation is a movie. The result is unwatchable. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
