Pride and Glory (2008)

I've Loved You So Long (2008)

Virtual JFK: Vietnam If Kennedy Had Lived (2008)

"With its fascinating central question (What if ... ) and well-chosen, nostalgic footage of John F. Kennedy in his prime, this well-played documentary manages to escape the fate of other dry historical overviews." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 15, 2008

Ghost Town (2008)

"Who knew that Ricky Gervais could play such a likable leading man?" ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 15, 2008

Battle in Seattle (2008)

"The drama gets heavy-handed at times, but the film is a triumph, thanks to a crack cast including Connie Nielson, stunning as a TV reporter who joins her subjects in protest." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 15, 2008

Flow: For Love of Water (2008)

"It's a plainly one-sided call to arms, but with good reason -- you may never look at your faucet without flinching again." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Sep 8, 2008

Day of Wrath (1948)

"Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1943 masterpiece begins as a film about seventeenth-century witch hunts in Northern Europe, but it's really a psychological thriller about the pull of evil on weak souls." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Aug 25, 2008

Momma's Man (2008)

"It melds a poignant drama of adulthood with a surreal portrait of emotional paralysis, with an unexpected paean to the American avant-garde thrown in." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Avant que j'Oublie (Before I Forget) (2008)

"The film doesn't feel like a tragedy, but instead a droll slice of life -- perhaps a bit too muted and overlong, but often compelling in its own way." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jul 14, 2008

Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006)

"This smash-hit French thriller starts slowly -- and builds into a sharp action flick, though an overload of plot twists threatens to bog things down midway through." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Gunnin' for That #1 Spot (2008)

"It's a beautiful, delicately observed comedy." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Jun 23, 2008

Brick Lane (2008)

Posted Jun 16, 2008

Monsieur Verdoux (1947)

"In its uncanny depiction of a weakling whose crimes pale against those of the war-mad society around him, it's a near masterpiece." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture

Posted Jun 2, 2008

The Foot Fist Way (2006)

Posted May 27, 2008

Bigger, Stronger, Faster* (2008)

"...manages to be two films at once: One is an informative portrait of a power-hungry society; the other is an intensely gripping narrative of personal growth." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 27, 2008

A Jihad for Love (2008)

"Parvez Sharma's brave documentary about homosexuality in the Muslim world presents a brutally honest, eye-opening look at gay and lesbian individuals who continue to practice their religion, despite its blunt, often violent rejection of their orientation." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted May 19, 2008

Yella (2008)
