21 grams
director: alejandro gonzález iñárritu
Fate's tangled skein weaves three characters darkly into a chaotic struggle of faith, love, and death until the mettle of each is broken irrepairably. Hand held photography, out of focus and poorly lit scenes, and clever use of flash-forward editing add measurably to the bleakness of this painfully tragic tale.

24 hour party people
director: michael winterbottom
Smart, funny and engaging, 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE has art-house cred and date movie appeal. Boy, are they going to sell a lot of copies of the soundtrack.

25th hour
director: spike lee
A series of powerful, well-acted but disjointed vignettes that never seem to add up to a complete or coherent story, 25th Hour did a good job of making me feel for the characters. But the heavy-handed 9/11 references, the overbearing score and the lack of cohesion in the story left me not knowing what to make of this offering.

28 days later
director: danny boyle
Scary good fun though plagued with more than a couple of "dumb white guy goes into the spot where the monsters are hiding" moments (according to Eddie Murphy, black people would leave the house). Marrying a spunky young British cast, this is easily one of the better horror movies I've seen in a while.
