Film Review: Unexpected
Well-acted but not fully credible film about two women from different worlds facing pregnancy and forging an unlikely bond.
Film Review: The Stanford Prison Experiment
Impressively performed and gripping account of a legendary 1971 college experiment that sheds a cruel light on the relationship between inmates and their guards in a brutalized prison setting.
Film Review: Meet Me in Montenegro
Uninspired autobiographical date-night movie about lost love found.
Film Review: Stray Dog
Riveting, eye-opening look at ponytail-sporting, moonshine-guzzling Vietnam vets who live in trailer parks and ride around the country on Harley Davidson motorcycles.

At moments uncomfortable to watch, Maya Forbes’ debut feature is nevertheless an unusual and well-done autobiographical feature about her bipolar father and the strange family dynamic he fostered.
Film Review: The 11th Hour
Kim Basinger plays an unhinged woman determined to have a baby in this peculiar film awash in bizarre imagery.
Film Review: Freedom
'Freedom' unsuccessfully attempts to tie together two obliquely connected narratives, set a hundred years apart, about forgiveness and redemption in the face of slavery’s unremitting cruelty.
Film Review: I Believe In Unicorns
A teenage romance told from the girl’s point of view, 'I Believe in Unicorns' is a haunting rite-of-passage flick, but seriously undercut by its magical-realism overkill.
Film Review: Aloft
Visually striking but pretentious film about a working-class woman who finds her life’s purpose as a hands-on healer at the expense of the son she has abandoned.
Film Review: Good Kill
A fascinating character study of a fighter pilot engaging in drone warfare from afar that regrettably becomes a thinly veiled critique of America’s anti-terrorist war efforts.
