4/5
A terrifically gripping WWII drama that manages to balance introspection with bursts of battlefield action.

5/5
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.

3.5/5
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.

It's surprising how touching the simple film is. The marvelous photography makes viewing it a breathtaking experience.

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

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.

3.5/5
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.

3.5/5
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.

... the cinema is at its best when it's invisible and we can get lost in her amazing, funny, serious and moving monologue...

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.

... for all the glorification of the mercenary methods of this elite squad, it's still a fascinating portrait of a nightmarish police and crime culture and a vivid narrative.

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...

The portraits of these kids often feel honest, sometimes intrusive, and occasionally they come off a little camera-conscious, which may simply be the nature of the beast.

Bottle Shock (2008)
A fascinating true story... is buried in a mundane story of generational conflict.
Posted Jun 16, 2008

... almost indistinguishable from any other portrait of the aimless American male who is jolted from passivity to action by a reckless pal.

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

I found the texture of the relationships and the sly humor winning...

[Director Stuart] Townsend believes in the politics and the passion of the protesters; he makes their concerns heard over the media noise focused on the spectacle of conflict.

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.

If anything, the vision is more fatalistic than any of Melville's crime classics.

Jensen doesn't pretend it's cute and/or harmless -- there's a fascinating ambiguity to the happy fantasy laid over the misery and failure.

Allegro (2006)
[Director Christoffer] Boe offers us a vision of love as a beautiful thing that leaves destruction and pain in its wake.

... a mix of poetic realism and expressionism in a story set around a corporate department store that is crushing its competition by design...
Posted Jun 6, 2006

... more than simply a love letter to the stylized artificiality of silent expressionist horror... the most faithful screen translation of the author's work to date.

Nick Cave's sinewy script looks austere and stripped down but echoes with a rich set of characters and conflicts...

Altman enjoys the company of the characters and their swirl of sweet-and-sour chemistry but has little luck creating any drama from the situation...
Posted Jun 4, 2006

Crafted with a budget-minded luscious sense of period detail to distract from the rudimentary direction and clumsy screenwriting...

13 Tzameti (2005)
Gela Babluani creates tension with a stripped-down style and an unflinching camera and drives the film with a crisp pace that feels both out-of-control and achingly protracted.

L'Enfer (2005)
Tanovic turns the drama of three damaged sisters... into a full-blooded opera with performances to match.

Between the wry trademark Jarmusch deadpan humor (and there is quite a bit of it) and the great cast, this one is worth a look, particularly for those already in the Jarmusch camp.
