|88 T10||Stay (2005) - Feb 09, 2012
"Many films have blazed this type of trail before, but Stay clearly leads us there in new, unexpected ways. Under Forster's direction and through Schaefer's innovative lens a visually stunning journey unfolds before our eyes - and it's not until at least a second viewing that we can truly appreciate where we've gone and how we got there. As many blurbs will tell you, this film fearlessly walks a blurry line between two worlds and adds a modern, stylized visual facade to a reliable old chestnut."
|91 T10||Inside Man (2006) - Feb 02, 2012
"The title "Inside Man" is just as tactfully hidden in plain sight as the plot revealed within. However, as sharp as the script may be, the performances turned in on all fronts drive this film as much as any other facet - including Spike Lee's suspense-laden dirrection. While certainly a departure for Lee, many of the cultural themes present in his previous work can be found under the surface here as well, all without feeling too heavy-handed. A worthy competitor to all classic heist movies."
|93 T10||Children of Men (2006) - Feb 01, 2012
"To call Cuaron's vision of the near future dystopic would be gentle. In fact, not only are the typical "end is nigh" signs present, beyond a collapse of human spirit, an unprecedented collapse of human lineage has set in. In this cold, gray, uninspired world our hopes come to rest on a cold, gray, previously-inspired anti-hero. But when he sees that the hope which has been stripped from the world with his own eyes, it's enough to re-claim his previously eroded inspiration for mankind's sake."
|98 T10||The Departed (2006) - Feb 01, 2012
"In what may very well go down as his finest work, Scorcese spins a brilliantly tangled web spanning from one side of the law to the other, and back again countless times over. And it's the routes the core characters take between good & evil or cop & criminal that give The Departed it's incredible shape and texture. All the pieces truly come together in this film - script, performances, soundtrack/score, and of course the impeccable lens of Martin Scorcese. And, keep an eye out for the X's..."
