Rating Title/Year Author
On the Bowery (1956) David Sterritt The result is harrowing and heartrending, and all the more so when you realize that the people on the screen died mostly miserable deaths, with only this little-known work of art to memorialize them. EDIT

Tiny Furniture (2010) David Sterritt Taken at face value, Tiny Furniture is an amiable comedy-drama with an unlikely heroine and an assortment of quirky supporting characters. The picture is more intriguing, though, when you consider its unusual casting. EDIT

Putty Hill (2010) David Sterritt What brings the bare-bones narrative alive is the mostly improvised dialogue created by the actors as the camera prepared to roll. EDIT

Pink Ribbons, Inc. (2011) David Sterritt Every concerned moviegoer should give this movie's case a fair hearing. EDIT

Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 (2011) David Sterritt The awfulness of Atlas Shrugged continues a trend, since the cinema has never treated Rand very well. EDIT

We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks (2013) David Sterritt We Steal Secrets is more earnest than exciting. EDIT

Hannah Arendt (2012) David Sterritt Although the movie etches a rather thin portrait of Arendt, it succeeds in humanizing her as a person, contextualizing her as a theorist, and evoking the courage she showed in airing convictions that often went against the scholarly tenor of her time. EDIT

Fill the Void (2012) David Sterritt It's not a great movie, but it's a humane and touching one. EDIT

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) David Sterritt The Amazing Spider-Man deserves two and a half cheers. Its physics are cartoonish and its metaphysics are nonexistent, but it's a teen-pic with a brain, and that's worth celebrating. EDIT

The Tree of Life (2011) David Sterritt The Tree of Life is a brilliant achievement in almost all respects, bringing the eternal and the everyday, the macrocosmic and the microscopic, and the physical and the metaphysical into graceful convergences that are awesome to behold. EDIT

Lincoln (2012) David Sterritt Spielberg may not have been the ideal director for this ambitious biopic, but Lincoln and Day-Lewis are a truly memorable pair. EDIT

Prometheus (2012) David Sterritt Prometheus might have given serous thought to this premise, but it opts instead for strenuous action. Still, the film has glimmerings of intelligence. EDIT

The Dark Knight Rises (2012) David Sterritt The film is unreal and irrelevant on every level, lacking even the modest virtues of Nolan's two previous Batman pictures. EDIT
