  1. Paints a vivid portrait of a compelling young man but, perhaps inevitably, goes overboard on the deification.
  2. Perhaps faithful to the spirit of the man, but frustrating if you’re actually curious about the facts.
  3. The documentary Darfur Now proves that - no matter how im portant the subject matter - following various people around with a camera doesn't necessarily make a film.
  4. It's rather sweet and life-affirming, although the transformation from sophisticate to peasant happens too conveniently and quickly.
  5. An '80s coming-of-age comedy with more energy than ideas.
  6. Whedon keeps approaching ideas, but every time he does so he leaves a flaming bag of dog poop on the doorstep, rings the bell and runs away tittering.
  7. Romero's we're-all-doomed-and-maybe-we-deserve-it pessimism is so extreme he would fit right in with a real group of brain-eaters: the French.
  8. The film keeps its focus small, but the trouble is, the characters' emotions stay that way, too.
  9. Steve Coogan’s Alan Partridge character — a craven, narcissistic, provincial TV and radio host who has been amusing the Brits for more than 20 years — proves too much of a sketch-comedy creation to sustain a film.
  10. Hardly a deep examination of gender relations or character, but in its unsentimental way it's a tender and charming story of friendship and tolerance.

  11. It's a typical Solondz sad-sack tale, but this film seems to be disgusted by its own characters, which isn't true of the director's best work ("Happiness," "Welcome to the Dollhouse"). We don't need to like Abe, but it's unsettling to feel the director might actively dislike him.
  12. If it weren't for the estrogen-fueled action scenes -- choreographed by director Cory Yuen with wit and style -- So Close would be as disposable as the shampoo ad it all too often resembles.
  13. A surprisingly upbeat look at that Middle East hotspot.
  14. After sitting a while in front of my computer trying to come with the right word to describe the Argentine soaper Family Law, I've settled on "diverting." You will be entertained, but you won't tax your brain.
  15. It's the Food Network meets The Weather Channel meets . . . the Scary Doomsday Preachers Channel.
  16. IF you like rap, you'll probably enjoy The Hip Hop Project. I don't like rap.
  17. The poster art for Nanette Burstein's American Teen, which follows five students through their senior year at a high school in Indiana, is modeled after the one for "The Breakfast Club." So, to a large extent, is this ultra-slick and predictable documentary.
  18. A buffet of dumb and degrading stunts halfway between Looney Tunes and Abu Ghraib?
  19. Rambling, mildly engaging micro-budgeted indie.
  20. Like a preoperative transsexual, Transamerica is neither one thing nor the other. It yanks at the heartstrings too much to qualify as an edgy comedy-drama, but it's far too bawdy to make it to the Hallmark Channel.
  21. Too many cooks spoil the broth, and too many directors spoil the anthology film Paris Je T'aime.
  22. Even with a clever final twist straight out of "The Twilight Zone," this crummy-looking two-hander is a tough sit.
  23. At 132 minutes, the film is at least half an hour too long. Nobody asked me, but the best solution would be to keep the action sequences (such as the robbery of a horse-drawn steam train, an homage to Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in the West''), and scrap the allegedly "witty'' dialogue and difficult-to-follow plot twists.
  24. Like many movies that premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, The One I Love has plenty of story — for a 30-minute TV episode, in this case of “The Twilight Zone.”
  25. The script is cliché-ridden and ends on an overly sentimental note.
  26. Misleadingly billed as a Fallujah documentary, Occupation: Dreamland covers a six-week period when not much was happening there.
  27. If the plot of the Argentine soaper Puzzle seems familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to the story in the French movie "Queen To Play."

    As a work of historical documentation, The Source suffers from Workman's wholly celebratory take on the movement.
  28. Engaging in a soap operatic, rather glib way.
    • New York Post
  29. Basically a watered-down collage of scenes from "Heathers," "Clueless," "Sixteen Candles" and numerous other teen flicks.
