Dirty (2006)

Freedomland (2006)
The performances all around are lousy -- histrionic and turgid, a most lethal combination.

The filmmaker whose work this most resembles is Guy Ritchie, except that Kramer actually seems to be taking himself seriously

Love (2005)
A multi-perspectival film vastly superior to Crash, Vladan Nikolic's dynamic thriller Love reinvigorates a stale cinematic format and imparts a compelling message all without a single head-on collision.

[Baker's] clownish backfield-in-motion Charleston shimmy is unlike anything else in the movie and perhaps unlike anything else anyone ever did.

The most that can be said for this strenuously bland reconstitution is that Steve Martin was clearly alive during filming. But just how alive, unfortunately, is at issue.

Promiscuously inhabiting several planes at once, Reygadas's restless inquisition may already be this year's movie to beat.

Night Watch (2006)
No hyper-designed ersatz futurism for Bekmambetov. Night Watch is knowingly frugal and proudly cruddy.

Willmott, who has written numerous documentaries and is a professor of film studies at the University of Kansas, maps an initially plausible trajectory.

This version is a thin, protracted study in shifting Hollywood strategies.

A riveting doc of hoop dreams realized.

Film Geek (2005)
Westby never provides a reason you should pay to spend 70 minutes with Scotty, but he offers at least a dozen compelling ones not to.

Misanthropic toddlers will be rolling in the aisles.

Firewall (2006)
As for Ford, autumn is upon him.

The Fallen Idol is actually a superior psychological drama [to Reed's The Third Man..

Painful, funny, unsentimental, perfectly measured in its ambiguities, it's exemplary low-budget filmmaking, the rare DV movie with an assured visual style and a strong sense of place.

Bahrani and his DP Michael Simmonds illuminate the murky beauty -- and hardscrabble economics -- of New York's all-night shadowland.

Old Joy (2006)
A film of microscopic mood shifts, at once open-ended and precise.
Posted Jan 31, 2006

The destination is a pageant that will demonstrate, in grotesque, stomach-churning detail, that beauty is skin-deep and that you don't have to win to be a winner.

The hyperactive juvenile whimsy and the stoner dream theories are out of control -- and fascinatingly close to pathology.
Posted Jan 31, 2006

A satisfyingly bilious satire.

The Tenants (2006)

Bleep was and is meant as a bouncy introduction for religion-conflicted boomers, and unlike most theatrical sludge it won't make you feel stupid.

Tamara (2006)
Survives solely on the repetitive pleasures of genre.
Posted Jan 31, 2006

As warmhearted as the original.

Annapolis (2006)
Jake [is] forced to swallow his pride and ask girly Brewster to train him. It's a marginally subversive moment in a movie that otherwise falls in line.
Posted Jan 31, 2006

The question of whether Sarabeth will make it as a big-city artist is less fascinating than wondering when she'll discover that her art is terrible.

La Scorta (1994)
La Scorta suffers from an anemic plot pulse.

There's no guiding power at work here; it's Evolution without a shred of intelligent design.
