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

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
