The movie's just not very scary.

Beneath the 1950's seemingly placid exterior of Ozzie and Harriet normalcy, there were -- brace yourself! -- sinister undercurrents at work.

A well-wrought indie written and directed by Goran Dukic.

Come and See, the last and most notable film made by the former Soviet director Elem Klimov, is another fusion of popular and vanguard styles, albeit put to more civic-minded use.

La Chinoise (1968)
Not just a period film, La Chinoise...is a chunk of the period.

Engrossing.

Control (2007)

King Corn (2007)
This is as much a thoughtful meditation on the plight of the American farmer as it is a rant against our expanding waistlines.

Khadak (2007)
The rebellion never achieves the mythopoeic visual potency it strives for; while passably adopting several familiar modes of art-house style... Khadak doesn't exhibit full, dynamic fluency in any of them.

Highbrow camp masquerading as a history lesson soapier than any bottle of detergent.

Helpless with comedy, heavily reliant on coincidence, and out of step with all current cinematic vogue, We Own the Night finally resonates as a beautiful, dolorous nocturne.

It's a serotonin-depleted ordeal, and yet seemingly a sketchbook of vibes and ideas to come, with some of the most magnificent black-and-white images shot anywhere in the world.

An unrelenting, smell-the-sour-breath portrait of a blue-collar marriage dissolving under pressure from Communist-era poverty, masculine inadequacy, and restless depression.

Broken (2007)
One begins to pity Graham for having walked into such a transparent booby trap.

Director Jake Paltrow's feature debut has all the hallmarks of an earnest young man's feature debut, and while that is not necessarily a bad thing, I can only imagine that it fit Sundance like a fingerless glove when it had its premiere there.

More human interest than agitprop.

Lake of Fire (2007)
A provocatively beautiful movie on the hottest hot-button issue in American life: a woman's right to an abortion.

It will no doubt be said time and again of Michael Clayton: best John Grisham adaptation ever.

Hard as it is to believe that anyone thinks the comic possibilities of polyester arrow collars haven't been thoroughly strip-mined, those are the primary source of ostensible laffs here.

Desert Bayou (2007)

Outsourced (2007)
Outsourced has a gentle touch with the obvious fish-out-of-water touchstones.

A remarkable confluence of talents are at work here.

The music, rhythms, and vibrant colors of the city are beautifully woven into cinematographer Jacob Sarmento Solitrenick's unobtrusive handheld camera work.

The Landlord (1970)
The Landlord remains one of the funniest social comedies of the period, as well as the most human.

...it's amazing how something so cold is expected to generate so much heat.

The Kingdom (2007)
...the movie's main satisfaction is the utopian spectacle of wounded Americans heading home, mission accomplished.

Ringu (Ring) (1998)

Is it the finest, smartest, most visually savvy horror film ever made by a big studio?

A pinnacle of the Hollywood fantastic.

Forever (2007)
Achieves something more resonant than a Solemn Affirmation of the Immortal Spirit of Art.

Silk (2007)

A psychological chamber drama in which the wide-open spaces are geographic as well as mental.

It's not just in the hot tub that Scorsese wishes to separate himself from this guy.

Hard to tell what's more annoying in this empty character study of eccentrics and the suckers who love them: the braying, blurting soundtrack or Douglas himself, who can't find his way into a man tortured by dull demons.
