    Kalmbach’s laid-back approach proves more likable than revelatory.

    Despite its infotainment look, Burzynski ultimately proves convincing.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    More polished and better acted than many "inspirational" biopics.

    Dancing Across Borders, Anne Bass' uneven docu debut, traces the fortunes of Cambodian ballet dancer Sokvannara "Sy" Sar from the time Bass first discovered him performing traditional temple dances at Angkor Wat to his conquests on the world stage.

    Although it avoids overt moralizing or clunky lesson-learning, pic's careful balancing act between tragedy and comedy eventually becomes its sole raison d'etre.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Engages but underwhelms.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    This simplistic story of bucolic redemption has few pretensions to depth, ambiguity or realism, relying on its name cast, sprightly lead and a helluva horse to attract family audiences.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    A lackluster actioner.
    • 41 Metascore

    Registers like a quaint display of local color.

    Luckily, the music trumps the indifferently shot concert footage and lends shape to the evocatively lensed recording sessions in iconic locations. Nothing, unfortunately, mitigates Markus' sincere but trite and awkward narration.

    "Night" trades politics for acrobatics, the film's kinetically edited action sequences filling the void left by sketchy character development.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Simultaneously insightful and idiotic.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Though conceptually intriguing, the mix of downward drug spiral with uphill struggle for good never really coalesces.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Turkel constantly undermines the feel-good with the ridiculous and vice versa, vacillating between infantile insults and professions of affection, a duality that ultimately wears thin.

    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Shady mood-piece profits greatly from enigmatic performance by Emmanuel Xeureb.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Directed by the pseudonymous Deagol Brothers, the film invests in spacey horror tropes one moment, plunges into absurdist adolescent angst the next and begs questions every step of the way, but just about holds together with its strong compositional sense, killer atmospheric lighting and wall-to-wall music track.

    Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel's New World Order is less about an international cabal seeking world enslavement than about those who fervently believe such conspiracies exist and who crusade to defeat them.

    Slicker, funnier and more professional than its predecessor, State Property 2, with Damon Dash at its helm tones down the original.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Brit helmer Malcolm Mowbray's film assumes the constrictions of a stagebound farce, taking place on a single set in real time, and swept along in magisterially broad strokes by Jeffrey Tambor's playfully theatrical perf.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Wide-ranging educational documentary attaches itself to the rise and fall of a 12-year-old fashion model, and indeed, its sincere, cautionary tone seems best suited to younger auds and small screen exposure.

    Chalk suffers overall from a lack of subtlety, as problems abruptly get thrust into the foreground with little buildup or internal consistency.

    Another in the procession of dead children movies that followed Atom Egoyan's magisterial "The Sweet Hereafter," helmer Gaby Dellal's sophomore effort unfolds in a similarly snow-blanketed small town filled with grieving adults, the community divided in apportioning blame. In contrast with Egoyan's labyrinthine structure and complex storylines, Crest cobbles together bits of plot and a motley assortment of half-formed characters.

    Though initially fascinating, this two-hour travelogue soon becomes repetitive as it forsakes stark desert isolation for icon-festooned churches and overcrowded ceremonies.

    The two still rely on their run-on, Woody Allen-ish interlocking rhythms to smartly propel the desultory plot forward, but after countless mumblecore and slacker indies, the sense of newness is gone.

    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Inoffensive but mostly undistinguished "Ancient Aliens"-type concoction.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    This spectacular orchestration of visual elements seems wasted on a threadbare, inanely repetitive plotline.

    The major draw of Blank City lies in its generous glimpses of rare, virtually lost Super-8 and 16mm films.

    Beginning promisingly enough, "Handsome" soon turns monotonously angst-ridden, with all humor and personality falling by the wayside.

    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    The idea of framing Holocaust atrocities in contemporary genre terms, although intriguing, is not without its perils, and the secret, when revealed, looms too large to fit within the plot’s parameters, creating strange disconnects between form and content.

    Buday's astrology-themed romantic comedy boasts a promising premise, convincing chemistry between its attractive leads and fine thesping by a defensively edgy Jena Malone. But the uneven script, repetitive tropes and over-indulgence of actorly bits slow the pace, tipping youthful casualness into complacency.
