"This slice of quirky life story about a classy, unattainable suit in a store window, is one classy movie as well, ennobling its host of eccentric and tragic, yet determined and struggling, vividly realized characters."

Desert Bayou (2007)

"A scathing documentary baring a nation into deep denial about lingering buried injustices and inequities which rose to the surface exposed to the light of day, in the wake of the Katrina floods."

"Censorship dictated the Hollywood product of the time, reflecting only the most idealized notion of U.S. society, with all sorts of skeletons shoved decisively into their closets."

"While trying to figure out whether it's a delayed development coming of age mood piece or a college romance turned offbeat road movie, Four Lane Highway offers little of dramatic substance to fill in the empty spaces along the way."

"A disturbing, mesmerizing thriller, recounting the real life plight of a remote coastal New Zealand village in the grip of a nearly invisible, deadly force, eccentric and angry recluse turned serial killer, David Gray."

Happy Endings (2005)

"There's a little fanciful magic to spread over this flighty romance on the run, or at least enough to take that hackneyed notion of the happy ending, and fashion something fresh and new."

"Possibly the first Hollywood movie to design a fairy tale of sorts around globalization, this delectable fantasy conjures a mythic Brit multinational instead of the usual imperial realm, as a basically high caloric magical kingdom."

"The entire strange magical realism and stinging emotional bite of Chumscrubber's burb wasteland are as captivating and disturbing as can be."

"Testosterone laced and overwhelmingly male in its point of view, the film is high on locker room lewd 'n crude, and excruciatingly, well, pre-climactic for those in the demographic most likely to identify with abstention as a masochistic deed."

"Moving as flawlessly and gracefully across the movie screen as the snow on its mute, chilly Scottish landscape, the film inspires amazement and awe as the work of novice director, Alan Rickman."

Romance (1999)

"The bottom line is acting out sexual urges and fantasies normally acceptable only in male characters, as the actress philosophizes with an assortment of cocks, determined to 'rape myself,' in a clinical orgy with a roomful of aspiring young gynecologists."

Rock Star (2001)

"The music is more than fine, but without the visual and narrative grittiness and edge to match, the movie ends up being more about the sound than the source."

"When you're set on making a serious drama like A Rumor Of Angels about talking to the dead - in Morse Code no less - credibility is apt to be strained for anyone beyond the most hardcore seance fanatics."

"Truly disturbing hard edge heavy metal laced scenes, however simulated, of the mass slaughter by military helicopter gunships of a mix of healthy and infected fleeing humans by their own government, really confounds as to who the actual monsters may be."

"A lone voice caught in solo flight, the results range from hypnotic and eloquent to infuriatingly arrogant and self-indulgent. But somewhere in between are glimpses of a transient soul passing through a painful planet, seeking an elusive Nirvana."

Death Proof (2007)

"Damaged or missing reels anticipating sexual excess disappear conveniently on cue, to keep the rating set comfortably at 'R.'"

"Much more than just your basic sadistic horror thriller, The Girl Next Door redefines the notion of guilty pleasure as raw and potent allegory, and corrective to the US culture of conformist collective complicity."

Canvas (2007)

"The director happens to know the often maligned subject of mental illness well from his own childhood as the son of a psychotic mother, and he embraces it with genuine feeling, emotional spontaneity and absence of consciously formulated dramatic pretense."

"This documentary touching on both the historical evolution and contemporary phenomenon of mercenaries feels uncomfortably like a promotional campaign for private security firms, as they're more euphemistically termed."

Scrap Heaven (2005)

"Masterfully focuses a keen eye on the misogynistic convergence of entrenched private emotional exploitation of women, and their objectification in public entertainment. Bravo, Claude, a rare man in profound touch with the darker impulses of his species."

Silk (2007)

"A metaphorical training bra for ogling boys - along with second childhood Dirty Old Aged men - DOA gives new meaning to females hooking up and hanging out, when it comes to airborne upper body intimate wear and its gravity defying plastic contents alike"

"The Lives Of Others' obedient, obsessed spy in an exceedingly odd sense may have much more of a handle on the lives of others than, say, the filmmaker, who himself was around six years old at that time period of the former GDR."

"A luminous, epic dreamscape, reimagining a decaying lost paradise from whose destructive core a buoyant redemptive unshackled political consciousness and redefined, aroused sisterhood rise from the ashes of repressive patriarchy."
