Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
87% Grey Gardens (2009) If there is a meaning to this adaptation, it lies in the filmmaker's gentle suggestion of the Beales' martyrdom-though for what cause the ladies suffered remains unclear. ‐ Slate

74% Too Big to Fail (2011) The movie is a tense vignette with a nonending. ‐ Slate

No Score Yet Knight Rider (2008) If you're looking to see the sci-fi Cheese Whiz of your youth transformed into something compelling, then you're probably already watching Battlestar Galactica.‐ Slate

50% Phil Spector (2013) I'm wondering if it is possible to do something analogous to a citizen's arrest and file a credit dispute on behalf of the viewing public. Nobody produced this film. ‐ Slate

63% Philip Roth: Unmasked (2013) That neither Krauss nor anyone has anything remotely unflattering to say about the subject points to the fundamental dishonesty of the work, which extends from its excessive reverence.‐ Slate

No Score Yet It gets beneath the skin by examining the state of isolation at the bottom of the world.‐ Slate

No Score Yet Bollywood Hero (2009) It must be said that Bollywood Hero is an entirely novel kind of slog.‐ Slate

88% Crossfire Hurricane (2012) It was my pleasure, as an intermediate-level Stones buff, to see that director Brett Morgen has put together something reeking of astringent danger.‐ Slate

67% Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis (2012) The documentary's camera captures the lensmen from an angle designed to make a tiny swarm of shutterbugs appear like a teeming plague, and you quickly begin to distrust the film's perspective in the most literal sense.‐ Slate

77% Recount (2008) It grovels for the approval of political junkies while flaunting the shallowest interest in politics, and everything flows from there in the most silly fashion.‐ Slate

97% When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts (2006) When the Levees Broke is a monument of oral history. Without fanfare, Lee orchestrates a multivoiced blues for the common man.‐ Slate

79% Brick (2006) Like the best noirs, Brick is a triumph of attitude, and there's no arguing that its brand of deadpan cool is precisely unique.‐ Slate

56% The Notorious Bettie Page (2006) No moral, little plot, a lead character deliberately left unknowable.‐ Slate
