    Living for the City: Barry Jenkins's "Medicine for Melancholy"

    The structure of Barry Jenkins's "Medicine for Melancholy" allows for a terrific twist right off the bat. Like many other modestly budgeted American indies, Jenkins's film follows two people getting to know each other, as they wander an expressive cityscape, over the course of one day -- aloofness gives way to intimacy, flirtation transitions into intellectual probing, daytime turns to night. The major difference here lies in the deployment sexual tension: this man and this woman aren't looking to sex as the endpoint, for this day is already the aftermath of an anonymous one-night-stand.

    Youth Rebellion: Cary Joji Fukunaga's "Sin Nombre" (Sundance '09)

    At different times, "Sin Nombre" is a harsh coming-of-age tale, a gripping man-on-the-lam thriller, a social drama, a road movie, and a love story. Sometimes, it's all of those things.

    A Tender Urban Love Story Grows During 9/11: 'Don't Let Me Drown" (Sundance '09)
