Examples

  • Ed Gonzalez in Slant: "Though the film is mostly interesting as a tour of the cliquey art world and [Allan] Stone's relationship to it, The Collector still feels redundant of documentaries like Who Gets to Call It Art? that have been all the rage in the past few years."

    GreenCine Daily: Weekend shorts.

  • Keith Uhlich in Slant: "Winner of the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Padre Nuestro unfortunately lives down to the dubious nature - with a few notable exceptions - of that so-called honor."

    GreenCine Daily: Shorts, fests, etc, 3/15.

  • For Jason Clark, writing in Slant, Everything's Gone Green is "a trite comedy that examines Gen Y-ish ennui and the futility of believing a middle class exists, a perfectly ripe subject for any film these days, but this one buries its good intentions in a deluge of missed opportunities."

    GreenCine Daily: Shorts, 4/5.

  • Earlier: acquarello, Daniel Kasman and, in Slant, Ed Gonzalez.

    GreenCine Daily: Exterminating Angels.

  • As for the WC Fields Comedy Collection: Volume 2, Dan Callahan, writing in Slant, finds it a "respectable second set, though Never Give a Sucker An Even Break is the only one you really need to own."

    GreenCine Daily: DVDs, 3/20.

  • Also in Slant, Rob Humanick on The Messengers and, again, Ed Gonzalez: Lights in the Dusk suggests what it might be like to stare at Bill Murray in a coma for 75 minutes.

    GreenCine Daily: Shorts, fests, events. 2/6.

  • Ed Gonzalez on The Short Life of José Antonio Gutiérrez in Slant: "[Filmmaker Heidi] Specogna evinces scant outrage for the gangsters running our government because her commentary on the complicated role Latino immigrants play in this country is largely implicit."

    GreenCine Daily: Shorts, 4/23.

  • Also in Slant, Ed Gonzalez on Ten Canoes: "Directed by Rolf de Heer and Peter Djigirr, the film is an intricately layered jangle of melodramas and anecdotes, suggesting the dexterous stream of consciousness of William Faulkner."

    GreenCine Daily: Shorts, 4/25.

  • While Nick Schager, writing in Slant, finds Calum Grant and Joshua Atesh Litle's Ever Since the World Ended, "a tale of Bay Area survivors of a viral apocalypse ... superficially indebted to the faux-verité trickery of then-phenom The Blair Witch Project," Jeannette Catsoulis sees "a rudimentary yet fascinating record of remembrance and reconstruction."

    GreenCine Daily: Weekend shorts.

  • Nick Schager in Slant on Dreaming Lhasa: "With their plodding episodic narrative beset by an energy shortage, and their cast as stilted and unnatural as the script's painfully simplistic dialogue, the filmmakers prove unable to effectively paint a portrait of contemporary Tibetan émigrés, whose plight — being caught between love and loyalty for their birthplace, and the allure of foreign/American cultures and opportunities — is cogently established but listlessly handled."

    GreenCine Daily: Friday the 13th.
