Why accept third-rate phonies when there are genuine Beatles films and video footage to be enjoyed?

If the film's mod trappings seem locked in a specific (and increasingly distant) era, its playful wit remains timeless.

Cellmates (2012)
The real fun here comes from Stacy Keach as a warden who tries (and fails) to instill a mania for potato farming on his highly skeptical prisoners.

Sometimes the truth isn't so fresh, but it's all we have.

How not to Americanize a Russian movie classic.

3/5
The film goes to great lengths to detail the business side of the art world, including the financial matters involved in setting up gallery space, the pricing of artwork, and the absence of African Americans from the influential clique of art critics.

In a film working off tradition, Good for Nothing moves to uncertain genre territory.

The filmmaker reportedly spent 11 years putting this film together - and for the unlucky viewer, sitting through this numbing and pointless work can seem like an 11-year stretch.

Or as Yakov Smirnoff would say: in Soviet Russia, party finds you!

It moved me, made me laugh, made me think and has an amazing performance by actor and musician Dominic Bogart that, honestly, blew me away.

L (2012)
Offers itself at face value as though in a self-induced trance, unaware or indifferent to whether we might join in.

Hardly the film anyone familiar with Frears's better work would want or expect, but that isn't to say it's entirely without merit.

What it expects of the audience is disproportionate to what it offers.

Sleepwalk With Me very much reminded me of a take on High Fidelity with comedians instead of music snobs.

It's in the small space between words and feelings that the film's most touching moments lie.

Miriam Makeba's sensual song performances gives the film a level of vibrancy and passionate energy.

Elena (2012)
The frequent tracking shots mirror the ways in which one thing leads to another seemingly without thought or cause, though a certain dark strain of causality is exactly what's on display here.

It simply wanders aimlessly for far longer than it needs to, neither arriving anywhere interesting nor taking any worthwhile detours along the way.

In spite of its purported intent -- to vividly portray criminal warfare -- [Jolie's] new film bleeds with the delight of capturing violence for its own sake.

The Artist (2011)
In the more eye-pleasing The Artist, the plot eventually comes too close to its inspiration, though its early moments were headed for mastery - and transformation - of style.

Yes, it's all straight-forward, no muss filmmaking, but Roger Corman wouldn't want it any other way.
