3/4
Taking a low-key approach, Herzog captures the pilgrims' intense fervor. The sight of 500,000 people united in prayer is mind-blowing.

The filmmakers follow this compassionate and articulate man as returns to Rwanda a decade later to revisit his demons.

An endless powdered-wigs-and-feathered-pen slog.

Decently acted and briskly directed -- but thoroughly predictable and sometimes achingly sincere.

Wild Side (2005)
Viewers are either going to walk out after 10 minutes or, like this tolerant critic, get caught up in the sordid lives of the three misfits and stick around for the ambiguous ending.

5x2 (2004)
Ozon is a smart filmmaker, but he doesn't go nearly as deep as Bergman did.

A bland, dull and only occasionally funny waste of time that will very soon be gathering dust in the remainder bins.

You can't get this kind of full-on sensory-jolt anywhere else, not legally anyway.

A chainsaw-cut above recent entries in the genre: a pure, unapologetic, unironic homage to the likes of Friday the 13th that respectfully salutes all the old shtick.

You can't help but root for them in their quest, which gives a whole new meaning to the term 'family values.'

2.5/4
Solid acting by a cast headed by Troy Garity -- and striking cinematography by Bernd Heinl -- helps redeem Allan Mindel's never-quite-believable crime drama Milwaukee, Minnesota.

A fluffy and fun coming-of-age-in-Rome comedy.

Rock School (2005)

Mon trésor (2007)
A raw drama from Israeli director Keren Yedaya.

Parlez-vous farce? Après Vous speaks the lingo haltingly, like the French you sort of learned in high school.

So square it makes the original Rocky look cutting edge and Million Dollar Baby positively avant-garde by comparison.

Peralta has actually told this tale once before, and done a better job, as the director of the 2001 documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys.

Deep Blue (2005)
A beautiful but empty-headed documentary about the creatures that lurk in the sea.

2.5/5
Magnificent shots of waterfalls and other natural phenomena abound, but it's far too late in the history of nature photography to expect anyone to gawk at them.

Invisible isn't always easy to watch, but Bojanov's film is so compelling you just can't turn away.

In a season of overhyped blockbusters, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a genuine sleeper that deserves to find an audience.

Credit a literate script and excellent performances by Ulrich Matthes -- tall and gaunt and wearing a wide-brimmed friar's hat -- as Kremer, and August Diehl as the Nazi bureaucrat and failed seminarian assigned to watch over the priest in Luxembourg.

The dork factor is cheerfully acknowledged by the hip documentary A League of Ordinary Gentlemen, a witty look at the sport's quest for cool.

A mild, slow-moving drama that belatedly tries to argue that graffiti writers are political artists, not an urban blight.

Saving Face (2005)
Tender and often extremely funny, Alice Wu's delightful debut feature, Saving Face, is a Chinese-American lesbian romance that wisely explores the tug-of-war between tradition and the need to be true to one's heart.

Sequins (2005)
Eleonore Faucher, first-time director (and co-writer) of the French charmer Sequins, is well aware of Neymark's allure and sees to it that the young woman is seldom out of the frame.

Madagascar (2005)
Sputters to an end without building to any sort of satisfying conclusion.

So darn watchable that it could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.

2.5/4
It remains for a tougher documentary to more forcefully trace exactly who benefits from this shameful practice -- multinational corporations and consumers who don't ask enough questions.

Harlin's version at least had cheap thrills -- Schrader's has none.

Tell them Who You Are is breezy and informative. It offers a view of the talented, opinionated man that only his son could pull off.

1.5/4
Davis, who grew up in the border town of McAllen, Texas, obviously wants to put a human face on the countless people who try to sneak across the border, but he fails to elicit any substantive information from his subjects.

Both Duvall and Mike Ditka, who plays himself and helps coach Phil's team, spend too much of the movie on the bench, and while they're there, the jokes run thin.

Layer Cake (2005)
Vaughn's film falls short of Goodfellas, but thanks to his ability to organize a complex story and bold, color-drenched photography by Ben Davis, Layer Cake is a cocked fist of a movie, impossible to ignore.

Monster-in-Law is first and foremost a triumphant comeback for Fonda, whose acting chops complement a presence that puts most of today's stars to shame.

Devos, as Nora, does much to hold it all together with a layered performance. Almaric has powerful moments as well, notably in a climactic rambling monologue about life he delivers to the boy.

Unleashed, which swiftly works its way to an over-the-top climax, is top-grade hokum. That's a compliment.

Good news, fans of Martin Short's porky celebrity interviewer, Jiminy Glick: There's a big-screen version of the short-lived Comedy Central series, and both of you will enjoy it.
