Interview (2007)
The least concrete and most artificial of Buscemi's films. But that's as much because of the situation as Buscemi and David Schechter's slippery script.

Drama/Mex (2006)
Amores Perros is a yappy whelp compared to this striking degrees-of-separation drama.

Macbeth (2006)
The rush into gunfights and car chases pushes the text in all the wrong directions.

Joshua (2007)
It's refreshing to see a horror film based on adult anxieties: The terror of the baby cam can only be overcome by more terror.

Director Chalerm Wongpim's skull-buster makes up in wild-eyed insanity (and excessive, arbitrary slow motion) what it lacks in acting, pacing, and coherence.

Rescue Dawn (2007)
As conventionally framed and lit as it is, Rescue Dawn is the closest thing to a 'real' movie that Herzog has ever made.

Over the GW (2007)

That the most powerful aspect of this story is described rather than shown is one of Ghosts' many mysteries. Another is Leth's remarkable access to his subjects.

The real intrigue has to do with whether McClane -- 'a Timex watch in a digital age,' per the lead baddie (Timothy Olyphant) -- can log in to 2007.

This is PG-rated proselytizing tinged with Al Gore self-righteousness, all with the narrative thrust of a film about the apocalypse starring Kirk Cameron.

Nearly three hours long, Lady Chatterley passes as swiftly as the summer shower. This is not so much a love story (and even less a story about love) than it is a movie of passionate loveliness.

Longing (2007)

The film devolves into stilted-foreigner scenarios and self-help platitudes.

Nothing illustrates the monstrosity of globalized commerce more vividly than the lateral tracking shot that opens Jennifer Baichwal's mesmerizing documentary Manufactured Landscapes.

1408 (2007)
The horror wouldn't work without Cusack, who makes what could have been a rote acting exercise -- Be tough! Now angry! Now defensively funny! -- a cathartic ritual instead.

There's hardly a moment when Jolie is on-screen that you can't sense the presence of make-up artists and hair stylists hovering anxiously just off frame.

More than a vibrant experiment in ethnomusical cross-pollination, it's just great fun, tempered by loss but rippling with gusto.

Maybe Judd Apatow's comedies also flatter the maturity-impaired by making their 10th-grade hang-ups lovable, but Apatow doesn't leave you thinking less of the women who abide them.

Czech Dream (2003)
The filmmakers sometimes come off as smug jerks, but that doesn't mean they're wrong about the insidious impact of chain colonization, or the infernal effectiveness of something-for-nothing come-ons even in political pitches.

Fido (2007)
You think they're dead, these zombie-film parodies, but, one after another, they keep lumbering back.

Nancy Drew (2007)
Unavoidably arch but essentially playful in its wit, Nancy Drew neither wears out its welcome nor compromises its heroine.

A gorgeous gravestone for the Beat Generation's legacy of beautiful-loser chic.

A spectacle blatantly predicated on a smug gaggle of mega movie stars in boss threads ostentatiously having fun by pretending to steal the house's money, while actually taking yours.

A casually bleak and neatly structured ensemble comedy -- at once deadpan and bemused.

Falls too often into didactic post-game analysis for its delicate mysteries to retain their luster.
