By Indiewire | Indiewire November 16, 2007 at 4:51AM

Among this week's specialty releases coming to theaters, indieWIRE ran into a bit of controversy with a not so flattering Review of "Southland Tales" from Reverse Shot editor (and Magnolia Pictures exec Jeff Reichert. Read the review and check out the long list of comments at the end. The film's director Richard Kelly, meanwhile called the film "a strange cousin to 'Donnie Darko' in a way" in a Profile during an appearance as part of indieWIRE's series of filmmaker Q & A sessions at Apple Store Soho. Also profiled (and reivewed) this week was "Margot at the Wedding" director Noah Baumbach who said of his work, "...I just feel I write better and direct better than I did." "What Would Jesus Buy?" director Rob Vanalkemade said of his early desire to be a filmmaker, "clearly this business was not run solely by the qualified, and I shouldn't rule out giving it a try" in his interview this week. And, rounding out this week's reviews, "The Life of Reilly" seemed to win over Nick Pinkerton from Reverse Shot, while "Redacted" played a bit tough for Dennis Harvey. [Brian Brooks]
