"A powerful feminist fable -- with a good dose of magical realism, a slight bow to Bu˝uel, and a fatalistic attitude to the craven paternalism that underlies the cradle-to-grave existence of women in many Muslim countries "
Every Little Step (2009)
Body Art (2002)
"A documentary with scintillating content about how societies around the world use their bodies as an art form. One African tribe even elongates their skulls, which looks chic, but I'm not sure what it does for their brains. "
Knocked Up (2007)

"But in a sense, Pasolini's was the perfect death for someone who lived on the edge, whose art was raw as it could be."
A Time to Kill (1996)
"With Joel Schumacher's tasteful but second-rate-Sidney-Lumet direction and Akiva Goldsman's nuts-and-bolts script, these boys have created a surprisingly stirring indictment of racism."
"Abrasively loud, gratingly acted, appallingly directed and without a moral core, this "3 Ninjas" also boasts a screenplay with the most "Unhhhs" of the decade, that exquisite sound you make when trying to anihilate another human with your foot or a karate"
The Butcher Boy (1997)
"The film almost immediately loses the major asset of the novel: its language. Possibly a quarter of the movie is incomprehensible to the American ear."

Going All the Way (1997)
Europa Europa (1990)
The Frighteners (1996)

The Three Sisters (1997)
"Chekhov's assurances that our current sufferings might become the foundation for a better society, if they are really meant as assurances, have never been better realized."
"City of Lost Souls explores anti-Semitism and racism in post-War Germany with an in-your-face approach."
Hav Plenty (1998)
"Ah, love! Ah, black stereotypes! Why is it so hard to portray the black middle-class and the rich with any dignity?"
Dr. Dolittle (1998)
"Why are creatures commenting here on copulation and what are anal thermometers doing being swallowed up by canines' rears in a kids' picture?"
"Watching this delectably humane road movie incites the same emotions as discovering the works of Truffaut"
"one of the most calculating films of all of this year's blockbusters."
