Yee-haw, I love a good Wild West variety show! Disappointment sets in when it's clear that there will be little in the way of variety.

In Bruges (2008)
It's obvious why [director] McDonagh wanted to launch his film career with bang-bang instead of talk-talk. But his timing seems off.

Beaufort (2008)
Pro-war audiences on both sides will find Joseph Cedar's vision irresponsible. I think Beaufort captures a higher irresponsibility.

Alex Gibney's Taxi to the Dark Side is the documentary that many of us have prayed for, the one that could break through even to people who relish the torture set pieces on 24 and will hear no evil about the War on Terror.

The frigid stoicism of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days barely contains the filmmaker's fury.

It's sublime -- beautiful and ghastly at once.

Tim Burton's film of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd is spellbinding.

Tells a momentous story -- a story every American should know -- in a boisterous, lickety-split style that makes the history lesson go down easily.

Persepolis (2007)
An exhilarating reminder of what animation can do that other media can't.

The Mist (2007)
The Mist builds toward a climax so wrenching that I hesitate to recommend the film, but I think Darabont earns his vision.

The film is a masterpiece in which "locked-in" syndrome becomes the human condition.

The Savages (2007)
The Savages is a delightful movie -- the perfect companion piece (and antidote) to the year's other superb convalescent-dementia picture, Away From Her.

Bee Movie (2007)
It's impersonal. It doesn't come from anywhere interesting.

Darfur Now (2007)
The depressing subtext is that even with detailed proof of ongoing genocide, it takes movie stars to get to the movers and shakers, and to get worthy movies like this one into theaters.

Redacted (2007)
Critics have called the movie crude and punishing. All right, the defense concedes all that, but the movie does a harrowing job of depicting the psychological toll of the occupation on both Iraqis and U.S. soldiers.

See the movie if you like emotional car wrecks and people who can't hold their mud.

War Dance (2007)
The glories of War/Dance are torturously won, and all the more glorious for it.

Here's the gist: It's a near masterpiece.

The new antiwar pictures are all clunks and wind, but they're full of fervent acting and affectingly rough -- they lack the usual studio overpolish. Robert Redford's Lions for Lambs is the clunkiest, windiest, and roughest of the lot.

Diva (1981)
This is style as a force of nature.

Their ambition is out there. But for all the sprawl, American Gangster feels secondhand. It's like Scarface drained of blood, at arm's length from the culture that spawned it.

The problem is structural. After the invasion, we're marooned with the dull survivors.
