Jay Weissberg, Variety

  1. I Killed My Mother 2013 There's much to praise, especially the oh-so-real dialogue, but true psychological penetration is lacking and Dolan's hunger to prove his talent results in a superfluity of styles. full review
  2. The Square 2013 The Square understands that the Revolution itself is a work in progress, and while its immediacy means it, too, will soon be superseded, it stands as a vigorous, useful account. full review
  3. More Than Honey 2012 Most striking in "Honey" are closeups of the bees in their hives, symbiotically working together in creating their new queen: Imhoof rightfully spends time detailing the extraordinary nature of bee social structure. full review
  4. Post Tenebras Lux 2012 The title, signifying "light after darkness," derives from the Latin translation of the Book of Job, an appropriate source given that a considerable amount of the prophet's proverbial patience is required. full review
  5. The City Dark 2011 An informative, well-rounded look at light pollution told with a star-gazing enthusiast's passion for his subject. full review
  6. Day of the Falcon 2011 full review
  7. Tales from the Golden Age 2011 [The directors'] youth and talent should allay fears that the country's film explosion is incapable of hitting a broad range of notes, and offer hope that more mainstream, home-grown offerings can spur cinema building within Romania. full review
  8. This Must Be The Place 2011 Quirky, hilarious and moving, Sorrentino's first English-lingo production is a road trip of stunning scope yet deep intimacy. full review
  9. Wrecked 2011 Adrien Brody once again proves he's got enough onscreen appeal to carry a decent thriller. full review
  10. Red White & Blue 2010 Influences of helmers like Larry Clark and Wes Craven are pronounced: The first half is pure montage, foregoing slick visuals so the characters' personalities, coupled with a disturbing stillness, take root. full review
  11. My Normal 2009 full review
  12. Nightmares in Red, White and Blue 2009 full review
  13. Deficit 2007 full review
  14. Klimt 2006 Klimt falls into the philosophical conundrum it attempts to resurrect -- whether portrait and allegory can coexist. full review
  15. Into Great Silence 2005 Such a poetic essay on the slowed-down rhythms of life, that its quiet pleasures carry the viewer along at a pace commensurate with the monks' own unhurried sense of time. full review
  16. Agnes and His Brothers 2004 In shuttling between drama and farce, more than a few balls get dropped. full review
