    Greenberg

    Unlikeable

    Because of Ben Stiller's titular character in Noah Baumbach's Greenberg, I have to reassess how important identifying with or sympathizing with the hero is in my criticism.

    The Ghost Writer

    Recapturing Hitch

    From Knife in the Water and Rosemary's Baby to Chinatown, Roman Polanski has shown a skill at the slowly distributed thriller, and especially with a dash of hard-core politics as in Chinatown's Los Angeles water intrigues. Now in The Ghost Writer, the acclaimed director recaptures that Hitchcock sense of inevitable evil slowly stalking the rich and famous while the little guy protagonist witnesses the underbelly of power.
