88% The Spirit of the Marathon (2008) This rousing and involving documentary explores different facets of the marathon and why some find it easy to get hooked. It is clear that the marathon is much more than an interest. It is a passion, an obsession and a way of life ..‐ Urban Cinefile

54% Choke (2008) More quirky than funny, this perverse satire chomps into a sandwich filled with issues like sex and belonging. Pushing the envelope every which way, this adaptation of Chuck Palhniuk's fourth novel is out to shock, confront and offend, which it does,‐ Urban Cinefile

13% The Women (2008) A juicy exploration of women's roles in the 21st century -- at work, at home and in the bedroom and although men figure in the storyline (natch), it is women-only who grace the screen. Three generations of them.‐ Urban Cinefile

37% How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008) Like its humour, the film's charms also sneak up on us, and as we take this unlikely, hiccup-filled journey with Sidney, he surprisingly goes from obnoxious to endearing and we are cheering him on from the sidelines‐ Urban Cinefile

63% Brideshead Revisited (2008) This revisiting of Evelyn Waugh's novel is successful in part in that it firmly envelops both its characters and us into a cloud of Catholic claustrophobia. But Julian Jarrold's film is so plodding and overlong, that by the time it reaches its resolution,‐ Urban Cinefile

71% The View From Greenhaven (2008) I loved every minute of this instantly involving film in which our hearts smile, weep and turn corners just like the train that carries its passengers to its mystery destination.‐ Urban Cinefile

No Score Yet Je reste! (I'm Staying!) (2003) A love triangle with a different slant, 3 is a Crowd has plenty to recommend it with its original screenplay and irresistible leading lady.‐ Urban Cinefile
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2008
78% Burn After Reading (2008) A dizzyingly enjoyable turn by the Coen Brothers that toys with espionage, adultery, blackmail and murder with a darkly comic edge, Burn Without Reading is a compelling combo of political thriller and sex farce.‐ Urban Cinefile

16% Max Payne (2008) There are guns blazing, mysterious winged creatures, a symbolic tattoo, an elusive blue elixir, an unresolved murder and big stunts, yet Max Payne is surprisingly lacklustre.‐ Urban Cinefile

14% My Best Friend's Girl (2008) It's coarse and funny, but there's something really endearing about this twisted romantic comedy in which the protagonist excels at being a self-proclaimed emotional terrorist‐ Urban Cinefile

61% The Duchess (2008) It seems Princess Diana was not the only royal whose marriage comprised three people. This cinematic and emotionally potent drama set in the 18th century and based on a true story, looks at a menage a trois that is filled with compelling elements‐ Urban Cinefile

55% Step Brothers (2008) Painful to watch, this Will Ferrell vehicle is crude, infantile and unfunny as it hovers around its one-tone premise in which two grown men behave like kids %u2013 and vile ones at that‐ Urban Cinefile

47% My Blueberry Nights (2007) Wong Kar Wai's visual style with its evocative mood is the mainstay of this lament to love, although its rambling narrative detracts from the film as a whole.‐ Urban Cinefile

13% The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) I've really enjoyed The Mummy Franchise. Until now. By the end, even the most amazing stunt becomes a bit of a yawn‐ Urban Cinefile

51% Funny Games (2008) There is something far uglier and dirtier below the surface: voyeuristic sadism in which Haneke implicitly involves his audience‐ Urban Cinefile
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2008
96% Waltz with Bashir (2008) Pensive and melancholy, this haunting and remarkable film from Ari Folman hones in on memory and how stimulating triggers unlock a traumatic war-experience previously blocked by the subconscious. Mesmerising cinema‐ Urban Cinefile

71% Salmonberries (1991) An unforgettable and haunting film about longing and loss, Salmonberries has a visceral energy that is as powerful as its isolated snowy Alaskan locations. The icing on the cake is an evocative soundtrack ..‐ Urban Cinefile

84% In Bruges (2008) Brilliantly sharp screenplay oozes pathos, incongruity and comedy of the blackest kind ... hilarious yet tragic, unpredictable yet conventional, but always involving and surprisingly moving‐ Urban Cinefile
