Giuliani Time (2006)

"So successful -- the archive being so generous, after all -- at painting Giuliani as an unlikable bully that by the end of the film you're left wondering, Why even bother?" ‐Slate

Night Watch (2006)

"If Night Watch is energetic, it is also frenetic; if neatly plotted, it is also too open-ended, a set-up for the remaining two installments of a trilogy." ‐Slate

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (2006)

"For a movie about the policing of borders, couldn't this one have maintained a firmer one, between credulity and incredulity? Between seriousness and self-seriousness?" ‐Slate

Caché (2005)

"Any work of art that embarrasses us for inclining toward warmth or decency (or, God forbid, humor) ought to be distrusted. On the other hand, I have found myself unable to shake Caché." ‐Slate

Underworld: Evolution (2006)

"I dare anyone to follow the plot, which manages, like some ill-baked meringue, to be both too light on the surface and too densely clotted underneath." ‐Slate

Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World (2006)

"All this, to spoof a petty little Hollywood ego? Too inside." ‐Slate
