  1. This is a tale of friendship, corruption, betrayal and desperation masterfully told without an ounce of filmmaking flash and with an unflinching commitment to realism.
  2. Giamatti has his hands full trying to keep us from thinking about Burgess Meredith.
  3. The result will stand as one of the most intense, in-depth, warts-and-all rockumentaries ever made.
  4. Isn’t really about drugs. It’s about what motivates people to make hard choices. However, deciding whether or not to view this unique glimpse into a seldom seen world should be easy. It’s a must-see.
  5. What's more refreshing about Severance is how the movie's humor offsets the violence, and even that is pretty restrained (at least by modern standards).

    This film takes chances and is abundant with style, seeming to pick-up where "Brown Sugar" left off, introducing editing conventions not normally accustomed to African-American film.

    One of the best Sunday Afternoon action flicks since the glory days of Schwarzenegger.
  6. Echoes Eastwood’s previous exploration of true-life violence, “Unforgiven,” by tracing how death and depravity stain one’s life for generations, leaving seeds to take root in each branch of a tainted family tree.

    While Hunger is a very brutal film, it also taps into human emotions and, in the end, asks what would we be willing to die for or, better, what could we truly not live without?

    Not only the best I've ever seen, but also the Indian film that'd be most accessible to a Western audience.
  7. The story of lust, love and betrayal intriguingly bemoans racism and prejudice of bygone times while peppering the “history” with more modern references.
  8. After half a century, does the story hold up? Eh, pretty much. In the end, the story doesn't really matter that much as this is really a vehicle for the amazing visuals.
  9. As always, Don Cheadle is fantastic, but the film belongs to Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

    So immodestly unripe; yet so horrendously tempting you’ll find it hard to resist.

    If you’re tired of zombie films or rabid people films, Signal is like a cool drink of water on a hot day. It’s got all the goodness from the best of those genres while creating its own niche at the same time.

    The joy behind this film is right there in the old-time, exploitation-tinged title.
  10. Kirk and Mol are convincing, easily inhabiting their respective roles.
  11. Performances are spot-on from the entire cast; each memorable character is finely detailed and full of eccentricities that are beautifully underplayed.

    Carice van Houten as Rachel/Ellis is as captivating as any screen siren working today.
  12. Gallo transcends the medium in a manner I only associate with David Lynch. It's brilliantly spooky.
  13. Watching the American nightmare of Must Read After My Death play out, it's impossible not to be both horrified and powerfully moved. Impossible as well not to feel profound admiration for the artfulness with which Dews has pieced these archival cries for help into a singular creation anyone who appreciates first rate filmmaking absolutely must see.
  14. The much-publicized decision to go "younger and sexier" with the casting--a move that turns out to pay off handsomely, enhancing and enriching the material.

    Part of what makes the film engaging is the carefully nuanced performances Panayotopoulou gets from her actors. In particular, Giorgos Karayannis.
  15. Their drugs are Cigarettes, Television, and Hostess Cup Cakes. In the end, if I am ever reincarnated and I have my choice between hating my White Trash Mom or hating my movie star Mom. I'm picking the movie star Mom every time.

    Murderball isn't a documentary played in the key of those Olympics stories that inspire you with sugary drivel, although it is ultimately inspiring.

    A fun, structured ride.

    The romantic subplot dovetails wonderfully with Harris' tribute to the genre's golden age. The moral quest of taming the West always thrived if a lady could be won in tandem.

    It is a refreshingly traditional star-driven thriller.

    An inspiring, fun documentary.

    The most touching moments come from Amy Hill as Linh, who runs a nail salon located next to a strip of long-forgotten Hollywood Walk of Fame stars.
