The fourth wall is retained, yet the membrane separating viewer and the images on screen has been stripped away. You leave the theater both shaken and elated. Nurtured by director Derek Cianfrance over a twelve year period, "Valentine" is the history of a marriage, from the early days of giddy love and ecstatic sex (shot in 16 mm), to the couple's doomed effort in a cheesy motel to restore a connection that has turned toxic (shot in digital). The story is told in shuffled time, currently fashionable in indie romance, but wh...

    Zeitgeists and History: The 2010 indieWIRE Poll at a Glance

    Among the 124 features submitted for best film in indieWIRE's annual poll of critics and bloggers, a not-insignificant thirteen percent mentioned a movie more than three years old. "Secret Sunshine," Korean director Lee Chang-dong's epic study of grief and spiritual solace, landed on sixteen ballots--all thanks to the IFC Center, which has scheduled the movie for an exclusive engagement at the end of this month, qualifying it for the list.
