Drug War (2013)
"Ignore the bad reviews from my jaded colleagues. This is not only a compelling story that goes to the heart of the immigration debate, it is a lovely work of art in the grand Italian neorealist tradition."
Computer Chess (2013)
"The film is very much in the vein of "Mad Men", laughing at the silly clothes and life-style of a past generation. Foolishly, I went expecting it to be an exploration of how computers became so good at chess."
The Act Of Killing (2013)
"Much better than the other reviews reflect. A feel-good entertainment that sheds light on the misunderstood but heroic Sikh peoples. Now available on Netflix streaming, see for yourself and don't rely on the critics."
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013)
"This film makes you understand why a whistle-blower like Edward Snowden emerged. The incestuous relationship between the Facebooks of the world and the NSA will certainly lead to a Stasi-like police state unless an aroused population takes action."
Israel: A Home Movie (2013)
In the Fog (2013)
"Powerful existential drama about the tension between morality and the imperatives of warfare against the century's most immoral regime. A sign of the continuing health of Russian film after the devastating blow of Yeltsin's privatization."
"Children's book author, antiwar agitator and pornographer for the carriage trade, Tomi Ungerer is one of the more interesting artists of the past half-century. Be thankful that this documentary captures his essence. "
This Is the End (2013)
Hannah Arendt (2013)
Bidder 70 (2013)
Three Sisters (2013)
"Wang Bing is the cinematic bard of the Chinese working class and peasantry. The film is must viewing for those who want to understand the grim realities behind China's highly touted "economic miracle". In other words, their 99 percent."
Desperate Acts Of Magic (2013)
Juan of the Dead (2012)
Herman's House (2013)
"Reminiscent in some ways of the Damien Nichols story but more about a father-daughter relationship. It also shows what a gifted conceptual artist can do, making the Whitney Biennial look like a bit of a joke."
The Revolutionary (2013)
American Meat (2013)
"As an object lesson in the reactionary possibilities of a nationalist revolution, this documentary is most instructive. It is also a reminder that people of different ethnic and religious backgrounds can live together."
The Company You Keep (2013)
You Don't Need Feet to Dance (2013)
"A great story about a great man and a reminder of why NYC remains one of the world's thriving metropolises. Hint: it makes it possible for someone like the film's subject to make a life for himself."
Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
"...when an obvious Secret Service baddie shows up to nervously have a smoke with Banning (as Hans Gruber did with John McLean), it's hard not to burst out laughing at the sheer chutzpah of the lift."
Cuchillo de palo (108) (2013)
Gut Renovation (2013)
Greedy Lying Bastards (2013)
"Next time NY won't be so lucky. A really big storm might kill thousands and leave us under water for months. This film shows us what forces are operating to make that more likely and what must be done to overcome them--starting with the Kochs."
A Fierce Green Fire (2013)
"Funny to see the rotten reviews of this film as if it were supposed to be entertaining as a romantic comedy. We are in deep shit, brothers and sisters, and this movie gives you and idea of how good people are trying to pull us out of it."
