David Suzuki gets an "Inconvenient Truth"-like platform in "Force of Nature."
Visually potent but remarkably vain.
For Ingrid Veninger, securing distribution for directing debut "Modra" was all the prize needed.
A big-name cast wearily goes through the motions in Barry W. Blaustein's hackneyed black comedy.
A modestly engaging domestic drama.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world midway between "Zombieland" and "The Road," the genre-enlivening "Stake Land" is a highly satisfying low-budget horror-thriller from helmer/co-writer Jim Mickle.
Admirably sincere but bluntly simplistic.
