Reviews of films presented at the AFI Fest Film Festival:

4 Months 3 Weeks 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
Carried from beginning to end by its actors, the film mainly lingers on human feelings, Mungiu's camera taking the time to let them appear.

Atenco Atenco
As a documentary film, Atenco is a failure. But as a document of an uprising in Mexico in 2006, it serves as proof that this happened and that it won't be forgotten.

The Band's Visit The Band's Visit
Eran Kolirin's tale of reconciliation is set in Israel, far from the Israel we usually see in movies.

Confessions of a Superhero Confessions of a Superhero
If you've been on Hollywood Blvd., chances are that you've run into Superman, the Hulk, Wonder Woman, Batman or one of the multiple incarnations of Jack Sparrow.

Deficit Deficit
In Deficit Gael Garcia Bernal directs, produces and stars in a film that seeks to uncover the ever-widening class chasm in Mexico.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly possesses all the weapons needed to seduce the public, the critics and the festival jury. A difficult subject based on a true story, a mise en scène rich in proposals, a clever mix of tones, alternating tears and cynical laughter, and finally, impeccable acting.

The Last Mistress The Last Mistress
In a filmography which mostly focuses on a full-frontal approach to the sexuality of modern women, this rather classic adaptation of a novel set in 19th century France might at first somewhat shock Catherine Breillat's followers.

Persepolis Persepolis
Adapted from Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel, Persepolis is a personal history everyone can relate to, told with a knowing mix of humor and nostalgia.

Public Enemy: Welcome to the Terrordome Public Enemy: Welcome to the Terrordome
Robert Patton-Spruill's documentary takes a look at the influence Public Enemy has had in the music world and deconstructs their legacy.

Silent Light Silent Light
Silent Light is one of those films that stands out because of its undeniable aesthetic values, but which leaves the audience twiddling its thumbs and puts forward an overly hermetic mysticism.

Southland Tales Southland Tales
The apocalypse according to Richard Kelly resembles a sophisticated Z series, that's excessive and confused, where the disincarnated figures of a decadent world become agitated.
