    New Directors/New Films Spotlights the Silver Lining

    It's a truisim that a creative, provocative surge in the arts accompanies national crises. Look at the "waves" that have emerged over the past 20 years in such countries as Argentina, China, Iran, and Mexico. Given that a significant majority of American independent films in recent years do not make the heart race, the unusually strong showing of U.S. movies in the 35th edition of New Directors/New Films -- a showcase of first- and second-time feature filmmakers which began March 22 and runs through April 2 --- is evidence of the societal rupture that's been building since a certain president took over.

    Rendez-vous with French Cinema '06, An Ensemble of French Films Rise To The Top

    True, the 11th edition of Rendez-vous with French Cinema offered no clear consensus on standouts.
