Dark Water (2005)

Before the inevitable and surprisingly anticlimactic battle with Doom, we are treated to two extreme-sports demonstrations, several training montages, [and] an ill-advised love triangle.

Saraband (2003)
Like a wedge of low-grade Stravinsky, revived and performed, the movie could be considered an addendum to a looming and unique catalog, in which no work is insignificant.

Crónicas (2005)
Oscillating between furor and languor, rage and repose, Crónicas mixes ethnography with media critique.

Rebound (2005)

Director Stephen Marshall is more activist than film theorist, prone to editorializing ('I'm certainly not going to sacrifice profits,' one journalist character sneers) without the equivalent of Wexler's formal rigor.

Duris, capable and dull, is no Keitel, 2005 is no 1978, and The Beat That My Heart Skipped is no Fingers.

World cinema's premier maker of mysterious objects, Apichatpong Weerasethakul is on a one-man mission to change the way we watch movies.

Its vibrating crowd scenes and splashy visuals will please the seven-to-12 set.

Modigliani (2004)
Sadly, instead of situating the l'amour fou in the artistic ferment of the period (1917-1920), Davis twists the period to fit the story.

UNDEAD (2005)
Watching it is a smidgen like listening to the same monkey-walks- into-a-bar joke for the 105th time, but for the Spierig brothers, it is clearly a demonstration of fast-cheap capabilities and a one-way ticket straight out of Queensland.

Kirby Dick (Derrida) shapes the movie in such a way as to leave everyone flummoxed.

Comparing Sex to a student film is an insult to the American education system; even film students can make title cards without typos.

The World (2005)
The World is the director's most accessible film. But it's also his most despairing.

Romero's fourth-grade dialogue doesn't help matters, but anyone seeking out the latest achievements in cranial ruptures, spewing-blood gouts, and ground-beef spillage need look no further.

It's a rare thing -- a summer movie that demands to be taken as a serious emotional experience.

Ineptitude is so thorough here that War on . . . could only make sense as a sinister governmental smear campaign to justify the war on drugs and total sobriety.

Lila Says (2005)
A vagina monologue scripted by a ventriloquist.

The Central Park Zoo is cheaper, you can walk away from the penguins after 10 minutes, and it has snow monkeys and beer.

POV (2005)
Weisberg, whose stripped-down style seems refreshing amid the current spate of super-produced docs, gives you what you want, if what you want are dismally deferred American Dreams and harsh economic realities. And you should.

It's precisely Malle's omnivorous appetite that makes his first feature, adapted from a policier, so delectable, one stuffed with many sumptuous sights and sounds.

Like a Nike commercial without a shot of the sneakers.

The film's storytelling strategy is unique and its point-of-view mutable and disarmingly subjective.

Bewitched (2005)
Unrivaled in modern times for smugness, vapidity, and condescension. To spend even 10 minutes in the movie's universe is to experience the Sartrean nausea of an utterly hollow head and heart.

This raw, fascinating, often unpleasant film is not in the least coy about its queasy mix of exploitation and therapeutic exhibitionism.
