Read selected film reviews from the Archives…

I frequently revise my film reviews with new perspectives, because my view on any work of art is always evolving along with me. You’re invited to browse a selection of those reviews, which are included here in an alphabetical index or in a chronological blog flow. Many of my reviews are currently offline because they needed maintenance due to the blog’s many format changes, or because they need revision. If you’re looking for a review that isn’t listed here, email me at joverstreet@gmail.com.

Also note: This archive includes some guest reviews by friends and colleagues, and some Film Forum reviews which include excerpts from a variety of critics.
