A Year in Space

They could have waited to release this until they had results of the "twin science".

As with any Todd Haynes film: gorgeously rendered and thoughtfully depicted.

The Good Dinosaur

When, oh when, will Disney put a family-friendly film that doesn't have only traditional definitions of family in it?

Labyrinth of Lies

My take-away from this film was a couple hours of Wikipedia reading.

The Event

Won the "Michael Moore Award for Best Documentary Film" for a reason.

No Home Movie

Revealing, extraordinary, heartbreaking, subtle. Too bad it wasn't in competition at AAFF '16.

Fragment 53, Liberian Notes

The access to these men is stunning, but why would they provide this access?

The Illinois Parables

I am completely down with a documentary in this style for every state in the union.

From the East

Damn, this was absolutely fascinating before the celluloid starting burning.

The Prison in Twelve Landscapes

Way more cohesive (with the edits) than when I saw it as a screener.

News from Home

Akerman's sound design is something to be marveled at.
