The_Counterfeiters2_list

Die fälscher|The Counterfeiters

Not worth the Oscar
It’s fitting that a film called Die fälscher|The Counterfeiters should have won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film, since that’s the most bogus category in the bunch.

Bank_Job_list

The Bank Job

Faking it
He's both smart enough to sense he’s being played by people far more powerful than he is and dumb enough not to walk away. Kind of like us moviegoers.

The Unforeseen

A warning, both essayistic and collagist

Chicago 10

A motion-capture cartoon with an anachronistic soundtrack
Some of the lead participants in the farce leave lasting impressions, not least the antic prankster Abbie Hoffman, voiced by Hank Azaria.

THE-OTHER-BOLEYN-GIRLLIST

The Other Boleyn Girl

A neutered affair
Though both lead actresses give admirable performances, they’re held captive (and kept clothed) by Peter Morgan’s flat script.

PENELOPElist

Penelope

Christina Ricci is still coming of age

SEMI-PROlist

Semi-pro

A grand idea
This Will Ferrell send-up attempts to do for bush-league basketball what Bull Durham did for baseball and Slap Shot for hockey.

WITLESS-PROTECTIONlist

Witless Protection

Larry the Cable Guy vee-hickle
It’s sad to watch Yaphet Kotto, as the shady fed, clothesline the stereotypical Muslim motel owner who’s already been threatened by Larry with a trip to Gitmo.

His last year at Marienbad

Alain Robbe-Grillet: 1922–2008

Vantage_Point2_list

Vantage Point

Unintentional laughs
Vantage Point neither resolves its own mysteries nor says much about the Rashomon effect it’s trying to emulate.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  February 20, 2008

Step_Up2_list

Step Up 2:The Streets

A step ahead of the rest
The ambiguous commentary on race and class takes second billing once director Jon Chu lights up the back-alley sets and lets the dancers loose.

The_Signal2_list

The Signal

Too many weird gimmicks
There should be a rule in science fiction that there can’t be more than one weird gimmick.

renewal[1]list

Renewal

Religious groups and the environment
They avoid religious cheerleading and tree-huggery; instead, their film demonstrates that when it comes to keeping the earth from getting wrecked beyond repair, it isn’t a matter of us versus them.

Be_Kind_Rewind_list

Be Kind Rewind

A shambling charmer
This isn’t Gondry’s best work — it’s too unstructured, labored when it begs to soar.
