T-Meter Title | Year
100% Infinite Football (2018) As a director, Porumboiu's approach is less swashbuckling attack than methodical possession game. - MUBI EDIT

84% Monrovia, Indiana (2018) True to form, Wiseman maintains a studious aversion to stereotypes here. - Reverse Shot EDIT

88% Claire's Camera (La caméra de Claire) (2018) Making honest films involves the work of honesty, work that can be perilous and thankless because the truth is so rarely forthcoming. So it must be sought with eye or pen or camera; and this, at least, is something you can do anytime you want. - Reverse Shot EDIT

96% Western (2018) Grisebach's film isn't about white horses and black Stetsons, but something more elemental to the genre: the impossible dream of a simple life. - Reverse Shot EDIT

84% Hermia & Helena (2017) Piñeiro's tricky plotting goes above and beyond what is strictly demanded by the story to offer up the pleasures of storytelling for their own sake. - Reverse Shot EDIT

81% Cosmos (2016) Cosmos is not simply an absurdist romp (though it is a very good one); it's also a surprisingly moving meditation on time and mortality. - Reverse Shot EDIT

86% Francofonia (2016) This is a film whose value lies much less in historical detail than bemused philosophical inquiry, which Sokurov offers with nearly comic generosity. - Reverse Shot EDIT
