Alamar (2010)

It starts with the story of a whirlwind love affair between a man of Mayan heritage, Jorge, and an Italian woman, Roberta. They have a son, Natan, before they realize that their two worlds are just too different and they split up. Alamar begins as Natan goes to spend a little time with his father, a fisherman in the Banco Chinchorro area near Mexico. Jorge -- who works with his father, Natan's grandfather -- goes about his day and teaches Natan all about fishing and boating and snorkeling, as if they were the most amazing new toys. Natan becomes enamored of a beautiful egret he names Blanquita. read more...

Boxing Gym (2010)

Frederick Wiseman is 80 this year, and he has directed nearly 40 documentaries over the last 40-plus years. Some of these films are short, and some of them are over three hours long. Some of them premiered on television, and some in movie theaters. Hardly any are available for the general public to see; they are only available through Wiseman's own company, and at not-too-friendly prices. It's hard to say if a more commercial career would have boosted Wiseman's reputation, but the fact is that -- in certain circles -- he's already a living legend. read more...

10 Items or Less (2006)

Director Brad Silberling has yet to exhibit much talent or personality in his films: Casper (1995), City of Angels (1998), Moonlight Mile (2002) and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004). And so maybe he thought it was time, in an effort to salvage his soul, to make a "small" film. His gambit paid off. 10 Items or Less is completely weightless but also unpretentious and enjoyable in a relaxed way. read more...
