    Hard Eight

    How fitting that the opening-night movie of this venerably risk-taking festival should be about gamblers. An aging tipster (Philip Baker Hall) meets a hungry young vagabond (John C. Reilly) in Reno and shows him the key to hustling a free hotel room ...

    Any indie filmmaker with talent who decides to direct a Cassavetes-style drama is hardly being unoriginal, for his was not a series of films so much as a philosophy of cinema. The challenge for a Cassavetes scholar isn't figuring out how to remake Sh...

    Chronicle of a Disappearance

    Ulysses' Gaze

    Children of the Revolution

    This is clever stuff from Australia, starring a better-than-ever Judy Davis and based on a wacky premise: What if, on the last night of his life, Josef Stalin slept with a woman, and she was an Australian communist, and this union brought a child? Su...

    Only in America

    If only for its uber-ordinary Texas settings and pseudo-verite affectations, this ambitious Amerindie invites comparison to Richard Linklater's formative Slacker--albeit with only a fraction of that film's memorable character sketches. Where Linklate...

    The Scottish Tale
