The Legend of Six Fingers (2013) M. Faust The Legend of Six Fingers consistently finds way of turning its limitations into assets. EDIT

Song for Marion (2012) M. Faust Stamp and Redgrave elevate adequate material into something special every time they share the screen. Be forewarned that the musical number that closes the film is guaranteed to have you reaching for the Kleenex. EDIT

Pacific Rim (2013) M. Faust There was a time when I would have considered Pacific Rim the greatest movie ever made. But then I turned 12. EDIT

The Attack (2012) M. Faust Seen with an open mind, it's an experience that gets under your skin in ways you won't expect. EDIT

Up There (2012) M. Faust One of the best Scottish comedies since the heyday of Bill Forsyth. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2013
Interior. Leather Bar. (2013) M. Faust The latest volley in the performance art project that is known as James Franco ... a sustained attempt at keeping viewers uncertain as to whether they are watching a scripted story or an improvisation. EDIT

Prisoners (2013) M. Faust It's impossible to ignore that you are looking at unspeakable cruelty which, even if justifiable, must be ruinous to the soul of the wielder. You expect that to become the theme of the film, but, astonishingly, it never does. EDIT

Short Term 12 (2013) M. Faust Set inside a group home for troubled teenagers, this film proceeds with seemingly unforced naturalism to tell stories about ordinary lives whose problems unfold into understanding rather than melodrama EDIT

Wadjda (2012) M. Faust (T)he first film shot entirely inside Saudi Arabia ... is an insightful and sometimes delightful story of a young girl chafing under but refusing to bend to the social restraints she is only beginning to discover. EDIT

The Counselor (2013) M. Faust Based on Cormac McCarthy's first original script, The Counselor is as brutal, philosophical and bleak as you would expect from his books. As directed by Ridley Scott, it is also a talky, shapeless, confusing mess. EDIT

This Is Martin Bonner (2013) M. Faust The detail is precise, as are the performances. These may not be people you would care to see a film about, but seeing it I can't imagine that you wouldn't be moved to care about them. EDIT

Identity Thief (2013) M. Faust ...piles on complications [for] a movie that is busy without being terribly funny. Give it Brownie points for making fun of Florida ("the worst place in America") and Ayn Rand. EDIT
Posted Feb 7, 2013
Footprints (2009) M. Faust It evokes a mood of wistful sadness at lives lost to dreaming. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2011
The Whistleblower (2010) M. Faust If the film occasionally falls into melodramatics, it's hard to see how a story like this could have been told otherwise. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2011
Alone With Her (2006) M. Faust A smart, unsettling drama that finds new uses for tatics devised by movies like The Stepfather and The Blair Witch Project. EDIT
Posted Jun 6, 2007
Mille Bolle Blu (1993) M. Faust A perfect little gem. EDIT

The Scarlet Letter (1995) M. Faust [It's] a mess that serves no one, least of all students hoping to get out of having to read the book for class. EDIT

House of 1000 Corpses (2003) M. Faust [Debuting director Rob] Zombie is more of a fanboy than filmmaker. He's adept at tossing off references to his favorite films, but much less skilled at making something coherent, not to mention original, out of them. EDIT

The Grey Zone (2001) M. Faust Unlike Schindler's List, ... this uses history to remind us of the tenuousness of our own morality, to remind us that ... most of us will never have to know what we might be capable of in certain circumstances. EDIT

Adaptation (2002) M. Faust A witty and provocative exploration of the craft that goes into our favorite medium. EDIT
