    It's not that you have to like the characters in a film (or play or novel, for that matter). But you have to at least find them interesting.

    Shrink

    The new indie release "Shrink" is an odd duck. On one hand, it wants to be taken seriously as a character study of a psychiatrist who must navigate the lives of several Hollywood types while trying to keep his own on track.

    Cold Weather

    Come to "Cold Weather" expecting a good mystery, and you'll likely leave disappointed. But keep an open mind and you'll recognize writer-director Aaron Katz's latest as a beautifully shot, expertly paced little film.

    The Artist

    "The Artist" is an original, lyrical, and at moments haunting valentine to black-and-white silent films. Indeed, it's a love letter to American filmmaking traditions.
