Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
88% Love, Gilda (2018) The result, like much of Radner's comedy, is entertaining, appealing, and more soft-centered than challenging or acerbic.‐ Slate

67% A Futile and Stupid Gesture (2017) There's a sense that the filmmakers have bitten off more than they can chew by trying to cram both the biography and the panoramic overview into one feature. ‐ Slate

4/5 91% Dear White People (2014) Dear White People embodies the virtues of the truly independent film, substituting strong writing, good performances from a largely unfamiliar cast, and a fresh, distinctive vision for the blockbuster's hefty budget.‐ The Arts Desk

91% Birdman (2014) [Birdman] perches adroitly between dark humour and darker despair and injects a familiar story of mid-life crisis with fresh vitality and emotion thanks to vivid flights of an intensely cinematic fancy.‐ The Arts Desk
