Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 No Score Yet Words of My Perfect Teacher (2006) Dzongsar's blunt and dismissive tone will come as a rude shock, but the film surrounding him serves as an excellent springboard to spiritual discussion beyond its value as a stereotype-buster.‐ Film Freak Central

72% Fido (2007) Currie's wit and aesthetic sense show that competency might yet come to Canadian film, making his debut feature all the more pleasing.‐ Exclaim!

2/4 No Score Yet Big Trouble (1986) From the depths of the files marked 'for completists only' comes John Cassavetes' Big Trouble, a film that defies all but the most determined attempts to fit it into the master's canon.‐ Film Freak Central

2/4 96% Winged Migration (2003) Perrin steers clear of science for the sake of cornball mysticism, resulting in a film that rots the teeth as much as it dulls the mind.‐ Film Freak Central

2.5/4 98% Spellbound (2002) The film needs to be a Hoop Dreams epic, but settles too easily for a 97-minute Kids Spell the Darndest Things.‐ Film Freak Central

1.5/4 53% The Burial Society (2003) The Burial Society is not a dishonourable film, but following its star's lead, it's unimaginative, and its lack of self-assertion ultimately wears you down to the nub.‐ Film Freak Central

2/4 64% The Dancer Upstairs (2002) [Malkovich] manages to reduce the talented Javier Bardem to a stunned horse and the 'Latin American' countryside to something resembling an unsalted soda cracker.‐ Travis Hoover's Days of Thunder

1.5/4 79% Antwone Fisher (2002) Those looking for a successful Antwone Fisher are advised to look in Terence Davies' oeuvre, or in Lynn Ramsay's Ratcatcher, as they are eloquent enough to make their traumas live in the mind and eye.‐ Travis Hoover's Days of Thunder

3.5/4 96% Time Out (L' Emploi du temps) (2001) [A] rare movie that makes us re-assess the basis for our lives and evaluate what is truly ours in a world of meaningless activity.‐ Film Freak Central

3.5/4 85% Spider (2002) After a period of indifferent projects, declining audiences, and three years of disconcerting silence, the unthinkable has become reality: David Cronenberg is back on top.‐ Film Freak Central
