2.5/5 29% Provoked (2007) " A melodrama dressed up just enough to hold interest, in the retelling of an undeniably important story." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 70% I Am Legend (2007) " I Am Legend is three film genres for the price of one: Science Fiction, Action, and Horror, and while it's no classic in any one arena it remains edgy fun." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 81% Fong juk (Exiled) (2006) " Exiled veers on the pretentious ...but the whole thing has such a humor about itself that it's hard to carp about it." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 50% Days of Glory (1945) " A terrifically gripping WWII drama that manages to balance introspection with bursts of battlefield action." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
5/5 97% Killer of Sheep: The Charles Burnett Collection (2007) " The fantastic thing about this beautiful film is how little it tries to make a statement about anything; it is, simply, life." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3/5 79% Sharkwater (2007) " If the film sometimes gets choppy, the filmmaker's passion for the subject and the disturbing revelations to be gained from watching the film make it more than worthwhile." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 85% Blast of Silence (1961) " The lost noir classic starts off a bit dubiously... but the increasingly sleazy, realistic atmosphere begins to take hold of you, until you're fairly well rapt." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 —— Paddle to the Sea (2008) " It's surprising how touching the simple film is. The marvelous photography makes viewing it a breathtaking experience." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 89% The Unforeseen (2008) " If The Unforeseen has a fault, it would be a slight lack of focus. A flawed, but beautiful documentary." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3/5 —— You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown " It's not up there with the best of the animated Peanuts shorts... but will still leave Peanuts nostalgists as happy as a warm puppy." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
2.5/5 30% War, Inc. (2008) " This absurdist political farce has its moments but requires a deft touch for satire ... perhaps no one could have made the uneven script work." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 94% Encounters at the End of the World (2007) " ...May not have the shock and drive of Grizzly Man, but it's a poignant and even haunting work nonetheless" — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3/5 69% The Wackness (2008) " With a game cast and cool songs from the era... heartfelt moments battling clumsy ones, The Wackness isn't quite dope but, like a good mixtape it is full of highlights." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 60% In the Electric Mist (2009) " Tavernier captures the moody, misty Louisiana atmosphere and has a low-key, slow pace that fits the energy of the sticky South." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 94% Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006) " Tell No One has shades of Hitchcock's Vertigo -- and not to its detriment. [An] extremely gripping and fascinating suspense film." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
4/5 —— Sugar " Full of life, even sexy and at times bouncy (and with a fine score), Sugar is a lovely, moving treat... full of rich supporting characters." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3.5/5 73% Hansel & Gretel (2007) " The story gets a bit convoluted as it rolls on, rushing through a few too many plot points and explanations, but slowly builds the layers of dread." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
3/5 88% Jerichow (2008) " Jerichow is not the masterfully complex work that Yella* was, but it's very tightly constructed and made, showing in some ways Peltzold's maturity as a filmmaker." — GreenCine
Posted Jul 30, 2009
64% Coffee and Cigarettes (2004) " Between the wry trademark Jarmusch deadpan humor (and there is quite a bit of it) and the great cast, this one is worth a look, particularly for those already in the Jarmusch camp." — GreenCine
