    The character isn't just shtick, though. As Billy, Talen has staged many protests in Times Square and anti-shopping "interventions" at retailers, where the managers, to say nothing of the New York police, often have failed to see the humor - he's been arrested dozens of times.

    At first, the technique seems gimmicky, but finally it's as compelling a perspective as any to understand how these men passed through agony to some sort of peace.

    The stories are harrowing, and because they are delivered by living, breathing witnesses, they move us in deep ways that the archival footage, for all its horror, cannot.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    An edifying and forthright drama that aims to create a lump in the throat, and succeeds.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Well-made and modestly enjoyable.

    What's unforeseen in Unforeseen, a superior documentary by Laura Dunn, are the consequences of a certain mind-set about mankind's relationship to the world and, finally, to itself.

    A potent drama from Yang Li, one of China's Sixth Generation filmmakers noted for the stark realism and documentary feeling of their work.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Nothing groundbreaking, but there's an easy charm in the movie.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    An austere rural landscape, festering hatred, class tensions, terse dialogue - these are common currency in indie movies these days. Shotgun Stories uses them all, but manages to stand out from the crowd.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A provocative character study and portrait of the times.

    The scale is small, but Jellyfish has deep currents.
    • 75 Metascore

    A liberating experience.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A giddy French comedy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    In general the film is so impressive that we can't leave the theater without wanting more.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    An enjoyable example of this extraordinary director's documentary work.

    We're compelled to admire these athletes because, despite their obvious skill, they are in constant danger.

    Eventually comes into its own as a wacky commentary on the state of America in the fifth year of the Iraq war.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It's a handsome and entertaining small-scale picture with nice acting, some crisp (and some crude) dialogue and effective direction.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Doesn't add up to much, but it's fast and funny and lets a bunch of top-drawer actors exercise their comic muscles.

    Will probably pass muster with very young viewers, but their parents may grit their teeth at its saccharine quality.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Does about as good a job as any film could be expected to.
    • 77 Metascore

    Except for Patekar, the main actors are nonprofessionals, which works nicely here.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Truly a winter's tale.

    Depending on your tolerance for talking Chihuahuas, this could make for a fun family night out.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A remarkable cast for a small, non-mainstream effort.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It's compassionate but unblinking.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Overall, it's a nice melding of sci-fi and a crime story.
    • 68 Metascore

    Intriguing and educational. For partisans of Bertolt Brecht, it's mandatory.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    You can see this Danish offering as a sardonic update of familiar noir material, or simply as the story of the midlife crisis of a guy who wishes - or dreams, or dreads - that he's living out a grand drama. There are pleasures to be had either way.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It's no great shakes as a film, but its combination of mild comedy, slapstick, pathos, many photogenic canines and a positive message will make it irresistible to families.
