The Prestige (2006)
The Prestige plunges us into a world of deception as means, end and the whole point, really.

As the tortured, heavy-drinking Hayes, Beach (Smoke Signals) is an emotional open wound, and his performance gives the movie its soul.

Forgive the straw-grasping, but a film made with such care inspires a search for meaning.

The Last King of Scotland, and especially Whitaker's performance, provide insight into the troubled psyche of one of history's most terrifying leaders.

Man of the Year pretends to reach for a steak knife and draws a plastic spoon instead.

2.5/4
Director Jordi Llompart packs so much material into a scant 47 minutes that you get the feeling that you've read a Cliffs Notes version of the journey when what you crave is the full fleshed-out story.

According to the movie, that crisis, which once beset people at midlife, now comes earlier because life moves so fast. Oh, so that's what they're calling immature male behavior these days.

The film's candid-camera skits are mostly unoriginal.

Half Nelson (2006)
The character might lose his grip at moments, but [Gosling] never does.

Confetti (2006)
Just when you think you've got Confetti completely pegged, it offers a surprise or two.

Highly stylized and overburdened with plot yet always engaging.

Gondry fails to come up with a story to support his visual whimsy. But his flights of fancy are intriguing on their own, and his two lead actors captivate throughout.

The Guardian (2006)
It doesn't grow corny until two hours in, but it has already worn out its welcome by that time, thus heightening the hokey effect.

Sweet when it should be tart, depressing when it should be devilish and flat when it should be funny.

2/4
All the King's Men doesn't reveal anything new about the ins and outs of politics, even as it insists, via showy visuals and James Horner's sledgehammer score, that it is revelatory.

The rare current movie that keeps you thinking as you head for the exits, The Illusionist is a bit of cinematic magic that keeps on giving.
