  1. Cidade dos Homens (City of Men) 2007 Our investment in their plight is ultimately enough to withstand the contrivance of the plot thread that tightens and tests the young men's relationship. full review
  2. For the Bible Tells Me So 2007 [Director] Karslake balances the more emotional elements of the film together with the scriptural analysis and weaves them into a moving conclusion. full review
  3. Puccini for Beginners 2007 The filmmaker's niftiest trick is in making a group of neurotic, self-involved, overly verbal people so engaging. full review
  4. Reign Over Me 2007 Movies about male friendship are often trivialized with the 'buddy' tag, but this one resonates beyond that. full review
  5. Steal a Pencil for Me 2007 Irrepressibly moving without being sentimental, Steal a Pencil for Me is a testimony to true love. full review
  6. Cashback 2006 A very romantic portrait of a young artist as he ponders love, beauty and living in the moment. full review
  7. Charlotte's Web 2006 The ads promise magic, but apart from the requisite heart-tugging finale, what it delivers is uneventful. full review
  8. Choking Man 2006 Choking Man mainly falters in its inability to reconcile the darker psychological elements of Jorge's mind and all that they portend. full review
  9. Maxed Out 2006 Scurlock does well to counter the more dire aspects of the film with a razor-sharp sense of humor. full review
  10. Dirty Deeds 2005 Recycling is alive but not well in the outmoded teen comedy Dirty Deeds, with a result that is more toxic than intoxicating. full review
  11. Serenity 2005 Whedon knows that he's blazing down a well-worn trail, but he addresses that by deftly adding elements of humor, action, romance and horror and continually confounding audience expectations. full review
  12. Stoned 2005 The film fails to establish Jones' significance to the band or why his death should be seen as anything other than just another rock 'n' roll casualty. full review
  13. The Puffy Chair 2004 What feels like meandering in the moment builds to a genuine emotional attachment to the characters. full review
  14. My Boss's Daughter 2003 It is a genial youth comedy that serves Kutcher well as a vehicle. That's it. That's all it tries to be. full review
