Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times

  1. Civic Duty 2007 The vivid sense of time and place is the best thing about the initially promising, ultimately irritating psychological thriller Civic Duty.
  2. Confessions of a Superhero 2007 The empathetic tone draws you in and some of the details are devastating. full review
  3. Descent 2007 [Dramatizes] the experience and the psychological aftermath of rape with a vividness I've never seen in an American film.
  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. One to Another 2006 If this is art, Cinemax is the Louvre.
  13. You're Gonna Miss Me 2005 You're Gonna Miss Me follows Roky Erickson, the lead singer of the 13th Floor Elevators and maybe the most influential 1960s pop star that most folks haven't heard of. full review
