Provoked (2007)

"A melodrama dressed up just enough to hold interest, in the retelling of an undeniably important story."

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."

"Exiled veers on the pretentious ...but the whole thing has such a humor about itself that it's hard to carp about it."

"The fantastic thing about this beautiful film is how little it tries to make a statement about anything; it is, simply, life."

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."

"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."

"If The Unforeseen has a fault, it would be a slight lack of focus. A flawed, but beautiful documentary."

"In one deleted scene, Moore reads to an audience selections from "My Pet Goat," the kid's book made infamous by Bush on the morning of September 11."

"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."

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."

"...May not have the shock and drive of Grizzly Man, but it's a poignant and even haunting work nonetheless"

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."

"Tavernier captures the moody, misty Louisiana atmosphere and has a low-key, slow pace that fits the energy of the sticky South."

"Tell No One has shades of Hitchcock's Vertigo -- and not to its detriment. [An] extremely gripping and fascinating suspense film."

Sugar (2008)

"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."

"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."

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."

Ain't Scared (2007)

"... the debut feature from French director Audrey Estrougo has echoes of Abdellatif Kechiche's L'Esquive... but has its own sensibility and its own vivid surprises."

Foster Child (2007)

"The poverty and desperation is palpable, but where Slingshot showed the constant hustling and thieving in a male-dominated culture, Foster Child is anchored by women..."

American Teen (2008)

Jolene (2008)

"[Jessica] Chastain does a great job of igniting Jolene's mix of street-wise survivalist instinct and romantic soul. Her performance anchors a film that has no solid grounding"

"Max Havelaar works because it's not about Max's heroism -- it's about how his idealism is shattered and the hypocrisy of his entire service is laid bare."
