Gotham Central #1-2—In the Line of Duty

These are the detectives that hurry to a crime scene after Batman's already done his (and their) job.

Elektra Lives Again

While the trappings may be ninjas and super-powers, at its core, this is a book about love and loss.

Tully (2002)

Locating its story of familial disquiet in the locus of the American myth, Tully doesn't quite go so far as to debunk the idealized heartland.

Shanghai Ghetto (2002)

A potentially prosaic documentary manages fresh insight.

Shanghai Knights (2003)

Its self-conscious use of the buddy genre's well known predilection for homoerotic/homophobic patterns is cute.

Max (2002)

Max is less concerned with making Hitler sympathetic, or even very specific, than it is in using him to illustrate a series of ideas.

In the Mirror of Maya Deren (2002)

A subtle and reverent look at one of America's most important -- and often forgotten -- filmmakers.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)

She's so cute, he's so cute, everyone's so cute.
