  1. Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq 2014 It is the mythic resonance of her story that makes it a worthy subject a documentary. But it is the down-to-earth human touches that make "Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq" worth watching. full review
  2. The Family 2013 "The Family" does have its entertaining moments. But anyone who thinks it's a real knee-slapper needs therapy. Stat. full review
  3. Just Like A Woman 2013 This well-intentioned buddy-road-trip flick lacks the danger, the drama and the sex appeal that most moviegoers will be looking for. full review
  4. No Place On Earth 2013 The film is not without its flaws, but the story it tells is both terrifying and inspiring. full review
  5. Only God Forgives 2013 It's not that overwrought violence and human depravity are unfit grist for art, but without a compelling plot and a modicum of character development, all this film has to offer is a repugnant prurience and heavy-handed atmospherics. full review
  6. Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry 2012 Using archival footage dating back to Ai's adventures in the New York art world in his 20s, Klayman traces his evolution as a creator and as an activist. full review
  7. Hellbound? 2012 An engaging, accessible documentary that explores the (truly) eternal questions, "Does hell exist? If so, who ends up there, and why?" full review
  8. The Magic of Belle Isle 2012 It's earnest, predictable and disposable. full review
  9. Sleepwalk With Me 2012 "Sleepwalk With Me" is the perfect movie for fans of "The Daily Show" who actually stick around for the second-half interview. full review
  10. Coriolanus 2011 As a portrait of modern warfare, politics and propaganda, "Coriolanus" is intriguing, even if the gritty action sequences don't quite measure up to the realism of "The Hurt Locker." full review
  11. Forks Over Knives 2011 It isn't possible to examine the scientific arguments in a movie review, but as advocacy documentaries go, this is a pretty good one. full review
  12. Jane Eyre 2011 Beauty, along with a sense of mystery, is what audiences expect in a Gothic romance, and Fukunaga delivers with carefully composed shots of austere landscapes and shadowy Victorian opulence. full review
  13. I Am Love 2010 In an American film, you live the story. In a European one, you're an outsider looking in. Ah, but what a beautiful view. full review
  14. Crazy Love 2007 Particularly because many viewers have already seen the TV-news version, almost any other genre would have been even more compelling -- a fictionalized drama, perhaps, or Truman Capote-style narrative non-fiction. full review
  15. Oldboy 2004 Combining the sinister suspense of Alfred Hitchcock with the unrepentant violence of Quentin Tarantino, South Korean director Park Chan-wook delivers a revenge tale as shocking as it is thought-provoking. full review
  16. /titles/201161 Steadily a portrait emerges of a man who is an inspiration as much for his character as for his talent. full review
  17. /titles/201172 An evocative portrait of a time and a place and also a subtly rewarding character study of three ordinary people in search of that extraordinary dream, a taste of freedom. full review
  18. /titles/197417 It's occasionally pretentious but ultimately moving, at least for the miniscule audience that will turn out to see such a downer of a movie. full review
  19. /titles/197222 As a spectacle and as an idea, Burning Man is strange and beautiful. full review
  20. /titles/198061 The haunted-house lighting is a perfect match for the claustrophobic intimacy of this two-hander - and camouflage, perhaps, for the fact that "Venus in Fur" remains more play than film. full review
  21. /titles/197315 A smart, feral flick with a wicked sense of humor. full review
