Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% Prototype (2018) The stereoscope pictures are incredibly sharp, the 3D granting the post-apocalyptic landscapes a frightening immediacy. ‐ Hyperallergic

86% Brillo Box (3 cents off) (2016) It feels slightly superficial, not delving especially deeply into any of its subjects and presenting a version of the (art) world scrubbed clean as if with a Brillo soap pad.‐ Hyperallergic

97% The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography (2017) A sweet film that, like an unshaken Polaroid, feels slightly underdeveloped.‐ Hyperallergic

84% Tom of Finland (2017) Karukoski's sensitive direction, which only occasionally gives way to cloying melodrama, offers a perfect platform for actor Pekka Strang to showcase his impressive range in the lead role.‐ Hyperallergic

86% Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back (2017) Here, the bait-and-switch keeps the informed viewer on high alert and adds a shade of suspicion to every legitimately insightful comment Gioni-as-Cattelan makes. It must also be noted that Gioni's performance is superb.‐ Hyperallergic

91% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) This film... with its vivid biographical details, characteristically offbeat humor, and ponderous sequences of studio activity, seems destined to become an essential piece of Lynchelia.‐ Hyperallergic

98% Kedi (2017) It doesn't seem unjustly catty to expect that a film so much about a city recently rocked by protests, mass demonstrations, systemic crackdowns on basic human rights... should reflect rather than ignore those realities.‐ Hyperallergic

80% Eva Hesse (2016) The documentary immerses us in Hesse's inner monologue, lending great emotional depth and complexity to someone who was both very sensitive and very thoughtful.‐ Hyperallergic

31% Jellyfish Eyes (2015) The fantastical creatures Murakami designed for the film are its real stars. And in spite of the superflat format, he manages to address some deep-seated fears and traumas in what might otherwise feel like a by-the-numbers kids' movie.‐ Hyperallergic

72% Big Eyes (2014) Big Eyes remains watchable thanks to Adams and Waltz, its few moments of Burtonesque flair, and the fascinating story it tells about art in the last half-century. ‐ Hyperallergic

62% Viva (2007) Better for an art gallery than a movie theater, Viva restores honest sexual politics to a genre that frequently masqueraded misogynist blackmailing as sexual liberation.‐ The L Magazine

71% Ezra (2008) A taut film detailing the psychological warfare used to control child soldiers who fill the ranks of rebel armies in Africa.‐ New York Press

88% Woman on the Beach (2020) Korean director Hong Sang-soo's Woman on the Beach offers flavors of quarterlife angst and romantic insecurity for which American audiences clearly have an insatiable appetite.‐ New York Press
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2008
100% Summer With Monika (Sommaren med Monika) (1953) A fully realized Bergman psychodrama, rather than an early model for his later work.‐ New York Press

96% Diva (1981) It flows between its romance, drama and thriller plots more smoothly than today's best genre-blenders.‐ New York Press
