Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail

  1. Kai Po Che! 2013 A film that might be the next Bend It Like Beckham - if it did not have the sensibilities of the next Dr. Zhivago. full review
  2. Lunarcy! 2013 Lunarcy! needs to spend more time explaining the man in the moon and less time stalking his sad followers on Earth. full review
  3. Parker 2013 Hackford struggles to find an equivalency for Westlake's spare, hard-boiled prose. full review
  4. Dangerous Liaisons 2012 Much of the cynicism, and thus the fun, of its many Western predecessors goes missing. full review
  5. Dark Horse 2012 You have to admire the filmmaker for what he has achieved thus far in Dark Horse, and mourn Abe's premature departure from the action. full review
  6. Deadfall 2012 Dean and Ruzowitzky want both inexorably tightening plot and keen psychology here, and they can't always have it both ways. full review
  7. Girl Model 2012 A scene where Arbaugh actually visits the models' apartment appears as staged as her concern about the place. full review
  8. The Adventures of Tintin 2011 Herge was the pioneer of an even-handed style of cartooning with solid lines and no shading that became known as ligne claire, but there is a decided lack of clear lines in this erratic movie adaptation of his work. full review
  9. Albert Nobbs 2011 The film surrounding the performance is not always as strong, but the centre holds, and magnificently so. full review
  10. Breakaway 2011 With a script credited to five writers including its star Vinay Virmani, it is a movie that keeps skating madly off in different directions and desperately needs more coaching than director Robert Lieberman provides. full review
  11. Casino Jack 2010 The film has a complicated political story to tell, and its erratically suspenseful narrative often detracts from its central interest - what makes Abramoff tick. full review
  12. Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer 2010 Gibney doesn't have anything more than tantalizing clues and a huge amount of circumstantial evidence, but he doesn't need much more than that to indict Wall Street itself. full review
  13. Curious George 2006 Gentle enough to satisfy the wee ones but has little to offer their adult companions... full review
  14. Flyboys 2006 The creators of Flyboys know no image too cliched, no narrative convention too exhausted and no psychological motivation too pat that it can't do service. full review
