3.5/4 Palindromes (2004) Kam Williams A bizarre but brilliant headscratcher! EDIT

4/4 Mariscos Beach (2005) Kam Williams Works well so long as it is approached as a tongue-in-cheek farce as opposed to a plausible melodrama. EDIT

4/4 D.O.A.: Dead or Alive (2006) Kam Williams If Corey Yuen believed in truth in advertising, ala Snakes on a Plane, this flick would have a name like Jiggly Babes Kick Butt. The stuff that post-pubescent dreams are made of. EDIT

3.5/4 Manufactured Landscapes (2006) Kam Williams A powerful picture primarily because it never proselytizes but simple allows its visually-overwhelmed audience to draw its own conclusions about the unconsidered downside of living beyond our ecological means. EDIT

3/4 Duck (2005) Kam Williams Philip Baker Hall throws himself into the role ever so convincingly opposite his anthropomorphized companion in a manner reminiscent of Jimmy Stewart with his imaginary 6-foot tall rabbit in Harvey, and Tom Hanks with Wilson the volleyball in Cast Away. EDIT

4/4 Day Night Day Night (2006) Kam Williams Shrouded by a haunting pall which permeates the picture throughout, the movie is more interested in examining the mindset of a maniacal Muslim with her finger on the trigger than with the plight of her potential victims. EDIT

3.5/4 The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai (2003) Kam Williams Is this sleaze dressed up as art, or vice-versa? As more and more daring directors opt to push the envelope with similar conversation-provoking pictures, we'll have to let the debate about what could be an emerging cinematic trend continue. EDIT

4/4 Jack Smith and the Destruction of Atlantis (2006) Kam Williams Alternately bizarre and inspired, but an appropriate tribute to an uncompromisingly experimental innovator in the field of cinema. EDIT

2.5/4 The Astronaut Farmer (2007) Kam Williams Fortunately, this fable revolves around a role model worth emulating with an intact moral compass and an indomitable spirit of adventure. What a breath of fresh air after that Space Shuttle Commander arrested for attempted murder in an adult diaper. EDIT

4/4 China Blue (2005) Kam Williams Just the latest in an invaluable string of eye-opening documentaries designed to make Westerners face the fact that their relatively high standard of living comes at the expense of impoverished, indigenous peoples of the Third World. EDIT
