Isle Of Dogs (2010)
"Fans of arch dialogue (Howard chews the considerable scenery in a monologue about dogs, bitches, and loyalty) and those who know their giallo (there's a wonderfully voyeuristic stalk and slash scene) will not be disappointed. "
The Trouble with the Truth (2012)
"Directed with the usual sledgehammer hand of actioneer Roland Emmerich, the purple prose of the Elizabethan poet is mauled into the blue balls of Queen Elizabeth's suitors as the not-so-virgin Queen reigns supreme in the halls of shame."

"The documentary, narrated by Johnny Depp, keeps the action moving along, even when there are only audio recording or still photos available to illustrate points - it's visually arresting as well as attention-grabbing."
" If you love the '70s, and especially if you're a fan of sexploitation comedies like The Happy Hooker or today's me-generation throwbacks like CBS's Swingtown, then you absolutely cannot miss seeing Viva."
