Passably offbeat.

Turns from ludicrous to incoherent.

Mouchette (1967)
Like any genius, Bresson made rules in order to break them.

5
Pickpocket (1959)
Ultimately inexplicable, this concentrated, elliptical, economical movie is an experience that never loses its strangeness.

Clooney's brilliantly orchestrated and seriously respectful movie can be seen as a grim shoulder tap, lamenting the social irresponsibility of what Gore Vidal likes to call the 'United States of Amnesia.'

If you're not up to your hairline with the post-Romero zombie mythology already, you might be able to find room in your heart for Dave Gebroe's indecorously titled Zombie Honeymoon -- it's all about love and death.

Private (2005)
An often effective vérité slash of agitprop.

Civeyrac's moody sixth feature combines genre movie thematics (and B movie frugality) with a bravura narrative structuralism.

Wolfe's anecdotal musicology succeeds precisely because of its bare-bones, bawdy yet beautiful approach -- just like the music Vargas makes.

Duma (2005)
Surprisingly flat.

Serenity (2005)
Whedon, who always delights in blending genres and tones, has assembled his most frantically disparate collection of pop culture quotations, boldly and cleverly going where plenty have gone before.

A rare serving of adept regional indie cinema.

Whatever inner conflict rages looks to us like moping and staring blankly out at the East River.

MirrorMask (2005)
The film galumphs along in static panels, prioritizing flash over thought, hyperextending a story that would barely sustain a children's picture book.

Flightplan (2005)

Tender, cruel, and very funny, Baumbach's fourth feature turns family history into a sort of urban myth.

If there's an element of Into the Fire that isn't rank and offensive, I've failed to find it.

It's all fascinating, but must Kalatozov's careening angel of cinema be laid bare?

Watch it with your eyes closed.

A tender Greek drama documenting a child's disbelief in the face of his father's death.

Piggie (2003)

Falk isn't given anything funny to say or do, but his performance is littered with beautiful touches, tiny oases of brilliance in an entertainment desert.

Exactly the sort of starry-eyed, bullet-spraying hyperbole that drains credibility from any brand of political discourse.

The variety of its cadaverous style is never less than inspired; never has the human skull's natural grin been redeployed so exhaustively for yuks.

Proof (2005)
John Madden's competent, monotonous film version, not exactly stagebound but hardly freewheeling, only underscores its mechanical nature.

It may be substantially less ambitious than its source material, but that may be what saves it from implosion.
