Gone Baby Gone

Part noir, part moralizing, and part urban-malaisey, the movie offers an assembly of seedy sorts who make Patrick's quest look increasingly hopeless but also ineffably gallant.

Monkey Business (Part 2: June)

Apparently, as the sun's strongest rays finally settle over the movie going public, sequels are the remedy to cool down an overheated demographic. This month alone holds five examples of such redux refreshment. The rest of the choices are a variety pack of genres, ideas and possibilities.

Gerry (2002)

By turns daunting and absorbing, the film is about movement that seems hopeless, that takes you nowhere, that's increasingly slowed but also increasingly urgent.

Ocean's Eleven (2001)

The background surf, unbuttoned shirt, and look away from the camera -- all this demonstrates just how movie-starness is done. The plot, like I say, is beside the point.
