Elegy (2008)
A flat, joyless affair.

Overall, it's still a fine debut, balancing its more ungainly dramatic turns with an absolutely perfect and poetic (dare I say Dardenne-esque?) final shot.

Sixty Six (2006)
You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate its uncondescending fondness for the claustrophobic warmth of family life among working-class people apprehensively inching their way toward upward mobility.

You have to admire the way it refrains from seizing the day for a postmodern lecture on the perils of fundamentalism, and confines itself to the disturbing vision of Evelyn Waugh.

Boy A (2007)
Crowley, his cast and the script constantly reveal new layers to the characters, preventing simple labels like 'hero' or 'villain.' These people are all cringingly human.

Meet Dave (2008)
Better than average but not worth phoning home about.

None of this is especially funny, though Rifkin has somehow managed to persuade a whole lot of women to get topless and vaguely hold our attention.

A cry of anguish not against Judaism itself but against fundamentalist adherence to the letter rather than the spirit of living well by doing good.

A stubbornly affecting drama that's strongest in its quieter moments.

Zenovich's zeal exceeds her grasp.

Chris & Don (2007)
A charming, illuminating portrait of the complex and storied queer romance between Isherwood and Bachardy.

Hancock (2008)
A peculiar and occasionally charming poke in the ribs of the superman myth.

Among the movieâ(TM)s many delights are the fluctuating rhythms of its pacing, an atmospheric volatility that sets off the doctorâ(TM)s blooming paranoia against his sunlit, leafy surroundings, and a terrific cast.

American Son (2008)
It may be the first Iraq war-related movie that can equally appeal to both left and right

As a 2-D movie, or inevitable DVD, it probably fails. As a 3-D experience, though, it rocks.

...in a summer of billionaires with robot suits and nerdy scientists with rage issues, somehow the red-skinned demon who drinks beer in the shower is the big screen superhero I can relate to the most.

Sixty Six (2006)
It's cliched and gooey, but because it's English, and has Helena Bonham Carter in a rare non-gothy role, viewers may be fooled into thinking it's quirky. No.

Meet the filmmaker that [Tornatore] is today -- sadomasochistic fantasist, exploiter of women and cheesy Hitchcock imitator.

By keeping the tone light and the players human (Steve Coogan has a nice turn as a greasy casino host), and never, ever romanticizing the addict, Finding Amanda comes by its heartbreak honestly.

Expired (2008)
Expired pretends to be a valentine to society's outcasts, but it's just one more indie comedy that mocks its characters while sucking up to its knowing audience.

Highly recommended. In a world where the Best Animated Feature Oscar were not basically owned by Disney and Dreamworks, it would be a deserving champion.

Fragments (2008)
A movie like this tends to come out at least once a year.
