Meeting Resistance (2007)
"While there are some points of interest along the way -- such as a dissertation on the recruitment and training of resistance fighters -- we emerge from this patchwork of viewpoints with no real picture."
Chicago 10 (2008)
"Chicago 10 is a timely reminder that dissident youth once were viewed by the government as enemies of the state. Morgan's collection of these images forces us to keep watching, and recognize this as part of our very recent history."
Funny Games (2008)
"One thing you can say about Michael Haneke's unbelievably brutal thriller, Funny Games, is that it's an experience: an unpleasant, unsettling, cruelly manipulative and finally hateful experience, but an experience nonetheless."
"Anyone who suffered through Carrey's turn as the Grinch would be forgiven for staying away from any further such pairing simply on principle. But to shun the newest Carrey-Seuss mix out of spite would be a shame because this movie is a delight."
Never Back Down (2008)
The Counterfeiters (2007)
"Austrian director-writer Stefan Ruzowitzky does an extraordinary job of setting up this central moral dilemma: of making the situation both credible and not nearly as ethically cut and dry as it might sound."
"Director Gary Hustwit opens our eyes to the visual culture of typography in much the same way as Andy Warhol once freed us from the tyranny of advertising, by inviting reflection upon that which is intended as a subliminal encounter."
Girls Rock! (2007)
The Bank Job (2008)
The Business of Being Born (2008)
"Interviews with the mothers and footage of the birth process combine to offer intimate portraits of women preparing for and experiencing this natural phenomenon that has become increasingly mechanized."
The Band's Visit (2007)
The Other Boleyn Girl (2008)
The Cool School (2008)
"With each turn of events being telegraphed well in advance, there are no surprises in Sayles' script. The cast, however, headed by Glover's complex portrait of a man plagued by his past, is fresh enough to cover the stale plot mechanics."

Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins (2008)
Taxi to the Dark Side (2007)
"Taxi to the Darkside journeys into a new heart of darkness, the destination of which lies outside the frontiers of humanity. It is a must-see for anybody concerned with the potential shift in the American character as a result of its war on terror."
Fool's Gold (2008)
"The script is fatally stupid, most of the gags fall flat, the secondary characters add little, Hudson fails to make anything interesting out of the exasperated heroine, and the endless references to McConaughey's sexual prowess finally become revolting."
In Bruges (2008)
Over Her Dead Body (2008)
