No Score Yet Hugh Hefner's After Dark: Speaking Out in America (2018) There's a fine line between capitalizing on counterculture and promulgating it, and Hefner straddled that line as it suited him, in the same sad arrangement that in more recent years has given us woke corporations. - Washington City Paper EDIT

2.5/4 98% Sound City (2013) Given Dave Grohl's reputation for versatility and good taste, the film's sturdy sense of forward motion may come as no surprise. - Slant Magazine EDIT

8.3/10 47% The Comedy (2012) The Comedy may not aspire to be the portrait of a generation, but it certainly offers a scary dissection of a faux-careless Brooklynite sensibility that threatens to be the undoing of everyone involved. - Paste Magazine EDIT

3.5/4 100% The Rolling Stones: Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965 (2012) The doc weaves its footage into a meditation on sex, art, and money among a band not yet wearied of all three. - Slant Magazine EDIT
