Films about the Iraq war continue to come and, I hope, will keep coming. Among the most recent, The Battle for Haditha is especially notable.

Plot flaws and all, we can be glad that the picture was made -- because of its acting.

Savage Grace (2007)
Unfortunately for all its assets, especially Moore, Savage Grace leaves us somewhat empty-handed.

Zodiac (2007)
Gyllenhaal always manages to present a person of some sensitivity without leaning on actorish resources.

Family Law (2006)
Particularly good at the tiny details that become recognition points in daily patterns.

Like Ceylan -- like many a fine director -- Coixet has made her film less as a drama than as the traversal of a state of mind, a mood.

Like all good art, it evokes a supranational affinity. And there is an unsurprising paradox: this drama of personal uncertainties is lodged in a certainty of form.

Infamous (2006)
Why did they go ahead anyway? Did they believe that an immense Capote audience was hungering for two films about him?

[Xavier Beauvois] is a clean and sure director, with a good selective eye: he knows where we ought to be looking at any moment. We can hope for more Beauvois films with worlds of their own.

What remains most vividly after Riding Alone For Thousands of Miles, however, is not its story but its world--the immersion in that world of a foreigner, not a polo-shirted Yank but a stiff-necked Japanese. And it is all overseen by a Chinese director.

(Director Oliver) Stone has concentrated on one of the catastrophe's stories and has fashioned it well -- with almost palpable physical detail, and with performances that never sink to exploitation.

What (director Neil) Burger and his colleagues have done is to entrance us with a richly acted, beautifully produced story.

Old Joy (2006)
About [Kelly Reichardt's] directing, after praising her simplicity, one has to praise her daring. To make this film took considerable conviction -- and, for an artist, conviction usually entails courage.

This film by Nick Doob and Chris Hegedus forces us to make some decisions about him. For myself, I find him generally gross, in person and in manner.

POV (2006)
The essence of the film is that [Kushner], with not a touch of evangelistic pomp, cannot conceive of life as anything other than a campaign to improve life.

49 Up (2006)
The segments are so cleverly arranged -- [director Michael Apted] includes past pictorial references for each of the people we revisit -- that now there is something almost mystical involved.

The film isn't dreadful: it is just generally disappointing.

Gabrielle (2006)
[Director Patrice Chereau] has drawn exceptional performances from his two principals.

The only matter that interests is the question of Fiennes's presence in this political lesson for children.

What is strangely transfixing about the film is our agreement, from the beginning, that the struggle is hopeless.

Clean (2005)
The chief pleasure in the picture is Nick Nolte's performance.

Despite the far-off locale, we soon feel surprisingly comfortable, merely because of the film's shape.

Harron's work here is unclear in its theme or purpose.

Iron Island (2006)
Iran's recent growlings under its new president make such a film as Iron Island all the more remarkable.

It engages us from beginning to end without strong narrative, or narratives. It lives through the quality of Holofcener's dialogue and the performances that she has drawn from her actors.
