May 

2. Iron Man (Jon Favreau, 2008) 37 [The glib, ironic tone that prevails here seems an ill fit with the insistence upon spectacle. The lumbering action scenes are remarkably devoid of any suspense. The entire movie seems standoffish, as if we should all be so in on its jokes that we don't actually need to be entertained.]

 

3. El Bonaerense (Pablo Trapero, 2002) 62 [Extremely sensitive, as far as polemics go, this seems an antidote of sorts to Padhilla's overbearing Elite Squad. Trapero never forces things into predictable generic forms, which gives the movie a loose, undefined quality that matches its subject's outsider perspective.]

 

4. Climates (Nuri Bilge Ceylan, 2006) 58 [Filmed with startling clarity, this film is almost delivered boldly enough that one can overlook the major shortcomings of its script and actors. The sound design seems like overkill.]

 

6. Honor of the Knights (Albert Serra, 2006) 71 [Definitely a movie that asks the contemplative viewer to project a bit of themselves upon it, Serra's film makes the most of its minimalist palette by acknowledging the essential absurdity of this kind of esoteric filmmaking with its choice of subject. Perhaps more an exercise in adjusting your rhythm as a viewer than anything, it pulls off this sort of deadpan comedic fatalism to a greater extent than Van Sant's Gerry.]

 

7. Wild Innocence (Philippe Garrel, 2001) 66 [There's something willfully naive about the film's attitude toward its emo protagonist, but I suppose the title and the ending acknowledge that. The question, then, becomes whether Garrel is indulging his protagonist or underlining his shortcomings. Is the irony tragic or a sign of hubris? I'm fairly certain it's the latter, but the director's willful channeling of New Wave concerns and skillful dovetailing of "fact" and fiction ensure that it scarcely matters either way.]
