This flamboyant, Peckinpah-ish ode to male bonding has a melancholy, fin de siècle splendor.

3:10 to Yuma (2007)

One of the pleasures of Blitz's film is that it immerses us in the fraught, competitive pressures of the high-school debate world-like Spellbound, it gets the details right.

Superbad (2007)
As a Revenge of the Nerds redux, Superbad isn't perfect. But it's super close.

The movie goes down easy, but there's a thin line here: is this an homage or a parasite?

There is something to be said for a movie that may end up preaching, for a change, to the unconverted. If only the laughs were bigger, smarter and more frequent than they are.

Talk to Me (2007)
Brilliant, alcoholic and self-destructive, Greene is the fascinating subject of Kasi Lemmons's funky, R&B-driven biopic -- a vital entertainment that struts confidently between comedy and drama.

There's actually a coherent script, and there are some real laughs. Not big laughs, mind you, but a fairly steady stream of smiles and chuckles. And their newest caper is, as expected, fiendishly complex and outlandishly executed.

Paprika (2006)
Paprika expands your notion of what animation can achieve. You wake from it as if from a dream: spooked, provoked and exhilarated.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Spider-Man 3 is nothing if not eclectic, but somehow this ambitious mishmash works. Action-packed, with all the digital fireworks that a $250 million (or more) budget can buy, it's both the most grandiose chapter and the nuttiest.

Kasdan has made a winning if overly pat first feature notable for its keen ear, its preference for character over plot and its refreshing modesty.

[A] jolly, oddly compelling and genuinely suspenseful documentary.

The Hoax (2007)
A provocative and blackly comic portrait of a con artist who is ultimately a pawn in a much larger and more intricate conspiracy than even he can fabricate.

Offside (2006)
As the political rhetoric between Washington and Tehran becomes dangerously overheated, Offside offers an intimate antidote: an affectionate glimpse into the cultural schisms that young Tehranis face every day.

Touching the Void leaves you emotionally and physically spent, and grateful it was only a movie, not a mountain, you had to endure.

Grbavica (2007)
Zbanic's deeply personal saga allows us to see the savage price that women paid in the Balkan wars.

It isn't often a movie has the power to force a country to do the right thing.

Avenue Montaigne is a tasty specimen of Gallic comfort food: it's well-sauced, it goes down easy and it satisfies.

It's hard to believe this is von Donnersmarck's first feature. His storytelling gifts have the novelistic richness of a seasoned master.

Venus (2006)
...A heartbreaking comedy that is simultaneously funny and sad, raunchy and sweet, funky and elegiac.
