Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times

  1. Alone with Her 2007 Writer and director Eric Nicholas's latest film, Alone With Her, is a voyeuristic thriller that is fiendishly assured yet ultimately less than the sum of its parts. full review
  2. Descent 2007 [Dramatizes] the experience and the psychological aftermath of rape with a vividness I've never seen in an American film.
  3. Dreaming Lhasa 2007 Dreaming Lhasa is a fine example of how feature films can be used to deliver urgent political messages, but its dramatic elements waver. full review
  4. For the Bible Tells Me So 2007 There is no denying that the film fills a need. The inevitable DVD should be packaged in a plain cardboard sleeve, so that viewers can carry it in their pockets and, if confronted by a homophobe, hand it over and say, "Watch this, then get back to me."
  5. Helvetica 2007 Overlong but fascinating, Gary Hustwit's documentary posits Helvetica, a sans-serif typeface developed in 1957.
  6. The Inner Life of Martin Frost 2007 The result plays like a half-baked tribute to Wings of Desire.
  7. Outsourced 2007 A wonderful surprise.
  8. Steal a Pencil for Me 2007 What makes Ms. Ohayon's movie special is its recognition that epic horrors don't erase private dramas.
  9. Cashback 2006 Beware films with protagonists depicted as vastly more sensitive than their fellow characters. The result may be a crock like Cashback. full review
  10. Choking Man 2006 Choking Man is harsh and intermittently affecting but oppressively contrived and mostly pointless.
  11. Crossing the Line 2006 [The] compelling story and the plentiful high-definition video images of North Korean daily life prove so fascinating that Crossing the Line is riveting. full review
  12. /titles/197378 The film's playfully self-aware touches (like a grand old theater named the Guignol) distract from its leaden pacing, three too many final twists and various behavioral idiocies. full review
