    Finding Amanda

    Is this a comedy or a drama? It's unclear and works as neither.

    The Go-Getter

    Every once in a while, indie film meets indie rock in a tragically hip combo that aspires to become the next indie darling.

    Mongol

    Whether or notMongolis factually accurate, it is an intriguing character study and a visually stunning epic set in the remotest regions of China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan.

    Sangre de Mi Sangre

    Although the two main actors are relatively unknown this side of the border, they are well respected in their home country of Mexico, and it's easy to see why.

    War, Inc.

    It's not promising when 10 to 15 minutes into a film, you begin to seriously wonder how much the actors are making, only to be momentarily distracted by the anorexic bodies of its two co-stars.

    Fugitive Pieces

    Fugitive Piecesis a subtle and mature film. All the characters are layered, and there is no dimwitted psychobabble about closure either stated or implied. It's not always possible or even desirable. And this filmmaker understands that.

    Son of Rambow

    Son of Rambowis at once charming and a tad dull. The tone is by turns delightful or cloying or both. It's an oddball amalgam.
