Resilience (2006)
It hurts to rag on something with such a micro-budget, but writer-director Paul Bojack's overlay of stories runs on empty.

El Topo (1970)
You may find it a tiresome, macho relic -- or a ragtag circus wandering through a fantasy realm part Treasure of the Sierra Madre, part Tolkien's Middle-earth.

Automatons (2006)
Robot radness achieved!

Keys's tribute to a tribute is a charming riff on an epic figure.

The movie, the first English-language film directed by Italian Gabriele Muccino, is too emotionally slick to work, too visually glib to have an impact.

More than 40 years old, François Truffaut's whirling dervish remains an ageless beauty.

The Good German is seriously deficient in the stars' star power and narrative excitement. The movie is lovingly framed, carefully lit, and fatally insipid.

The Holiday (2006)

Anyone who has ever actually been stuck in a terminal with rowdy youngsters will not likely choose to pay money to revisit that experience on-screen.

A disarmingly droll and insightful indie.

It's an experience. Either you give yourself over to it or you don't. And if you do, don't miss the end credits.

Apocalypto (2006)
Apocalypto is unburdened by nationalist or religious piety -- it's pure, amoral sensationalism.

The Architect is an affecting study in the private loneliness and strength of Tonya, a woman who understands her own motives only imperfectly but presses ahead anyway.

3 Needles (2006)
As a movie, 3 Needles amounts to unclean entertainment at best.

Tenacious D is utterly harmless and totally pointless. Black and Gass have been at this so long their dirty little joke has all the punch of a Catskills routine.

The fun is somewhat capped by absurdly stilted acting and daytime-soap-quality DV.

The Fountain (2006)
The premise is lachrymose, the sets are clammy, and the metaphysics all wet. The screen is awash in spiraling nebulae and misty points of light, with the soundtrack supplying appropriately moist oohs and aahs.

Our Daily Bread is quietly radical in showing creatures whose existence is solely and inexorably a preparation for death.

Fast Food Nation is exotic for being a movie about work. Its characters struggle with some of the world's dirtiest jobs -- morally as well as physically.

Bobby (2006)
Estevez means to eulogize the hopes of a nation, showing the night's impact on a group of hotel guests and staff cross-sectioned by age, race, and class. But his movie ends up buried under its stifling good intentions and dire execution.

Happy Feet (2006)

Indie-film exec Jeff Lipsky's sophomore feature as writer-director shares with his distribution work a desire to restore some of the untidier virtues of '70s American film.

Saw III (2006)
God or Jack Valenti only knows how this work of pure entertainment got an R rating 'for strong grisly violence and gore, sequences of terror and torture, nudity and language.'

Fuck (F*ck) (2005)
Twelve-year-olds might get a charge out of this purportedly daring documentary celebration of the F-word, although it never occurs to filmmaker Steve Anderson that it might be fun or even genuinely lewd to interview kids on the subject.

Harsh Times (2006)
[Bale's performance is] the kind of vein-popping show-boating that might as well be performed in a mirror.

Judd's typically lived-in performance and the authentic Arkansas locations -- cramped bars, dusty roads -- help vaguely distinguish a movie that comes on like a minor-key reprise of Judd's breakthrough Ruby in Paradise.
