    Music fans of every stripe should kill to see this film, one of the very best music documentaries in recent years.

    In the end, the greatest achievement of Control Room may be to simply remind us, as Americans, that in this age of mega-corporate U.S. news media there are other perspectives on world events besides those of Fox, CNN, MSNBC-ABCBS and whoever else feeds us our information.

    Maybe How to Draw a Bunny itself is really Ray Johnson's final testament, created with a mischievous wink from beyond the grave. After watching this extraordinary documentary, one has no doubt that such an act is well within Johnson's creative powers.

    The story goes on and on, endlessly fascinating to the last - the sensational trial, the convictions, the revelations, the recriminations.

    Medem's astonishing, magical-realist love story Sex and Lucía is easily the best Spanish film since "All About My Mother." But such a statement actually undersells the beauty of what Medem has created, which in many ways rather defies description.

    A gorgeous and poetic meditation on fate, honor and life in the Old West.
