Rating Title/Year Author
50/50 (2011) Dennis Harvey Gordon-Levitt is so good he compensates for the film's lacks, even if he can't erase them... 50/50 isn't quite worthy of this performance, but that doesn't mean it isn't occasionally elevated toward something special by encompassing it. EDIT

Songbirds (2005) Dennis Harvey Songbirds is tough-mindedly striking on several levels. Its protagonists seem not exploited or manipulated, but fully engaged by their curious autobiographical mini-musical opportunity. EDIT

La tête en friche (2010) Dennis Harvey My Afternoons with Margueritte itself is hardly brain food for viewers-it's more like a still-warm, home-baked cookie, celluloid comfort food. EDIT

The Hedgehog (2009) Dennis Harvey Nicely crafted, The Hedgehog seldom aims to be more than a pleasant low-key diversion-at which it succeeds-so it's jolting when the story pulls an abrupt late turn that casts everything in a more serious, ambitious light. EDIT

Viva (2007) Dennis Harvey You don't need to have seen the movies [Biller is] paying cheeky homage to in order to enjoy Viva. But afterward, you'll probably want to. EDIT
