Manufactured Landscapes
Directed by Jennifer Baichwal. In limited release.

"The film opens with an amazing eight-minute pan of a seemingly endless Chinese factory….there follows a succession of visually rewarding images (by Mettler and Burtynsky) of sights and sites that the word ‘beautiful' is rarely used to describe… like something out of a German expressionist film."

Review by V.A. Musetto, The New York Post.

SiCKO
Directed by Michael Moore. In general release.

"In Canada he encounters a man who caught a hockey puck the wrong way and sliced off all the fingers on his hand. "Socialized medicine" put the fingers back. By contrast, an American who sliced off only two fingertips was told one tip would cost $60,000 to repair but the other only $12,000. He chose the $12,000 operation."

Review by Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter.

Falling
Directed by Barbara Albert. Opens at the Anthology Film Archives, in Manhattan.

"At once a character study times five and something of a generational snapshot, Falling is the most recent feature from Barbara Albert, a gifted writer and director who's helping heat up the Austrian film scene."

Review by Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.

Over the G.W.
Directed by Nick Gaglia. Open at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater in Manhattan.

"Over the G W is a disturbing look at reprogramming that masquerades as rehabilitation. Having been forced to drink the Kool-Aid, Mr. Gaglia has produced a work that's as much an act of emesis as of filmmaking."

Review by Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.
