    Eagerly Expressing The Obvious: Berlin Critic's Notebook

    Five days into the 2009 Berlinale, and amid grumblings of discontent from critics ("Twenty films so far," said one colleague, "and I haven't seen one thing I'd champion") and a pronounced lack of enthusiasm among buyers, one sensed a new tone to proceedings: if the program couldn't entertain us, the...

    Sub-Par: Tykwer's "International" Opens Berlin With A Whimper

    It's a pretty easy equation, all things considered. "Opening Night film equals shite," muttered a British colleague, as we stood in the lobby of the Hyatt Hotel in Potsdamer Platz, about an hour before the first press screening at this year's Berlin Film Festival.

    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. That's not to say the first feature written and directed by Sundance Lab alumnus Cary Joji Fukunaga suffers from an...
