All the Reviews That're Fit to Link...

...or at least all the reviews I published this week. The only film of note covered below, however, is Raphael Alvarez and Tatiana Issa's documentary Dzi Croquettes, an affectionate look back at the eponymous cabaret/performance art dance troupe that emerged from Brazil in the 1970s.

The Lie (Slant)
Rid of Me (Slant)
The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch (Slant)
Buried Prayers (Slant)
Laredoans Speak (Village Voice)
Dzi Croquettes (Time Out New York)

Belated Linkthrough

It's been far too long since I collected links to my latest reviews, so here's a belated round-up of my work for the last two weeks. Although it's probably too late now to catch up with it, by far the best of the below-mentioned films is Patrick Wang's In the Family, which sneaked in for a short run at New York's Quad Cinema and deserves far wider recognition.

Young Goethe in Love
The Conquest (Slant)
Under Fire (Slant)
In the Family (Village Voice)
God's Fiddler: Jascha Heifetz (Village Voice)
