500 Days of Summer
Marc Webb's debut feature is a classic tale of unrequited love. But it's so much more. Helped along by a zippy soundtrack and thoroughly engaging lead performances by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, 500 Days of Summer manages to combine elements of Tarantino-esque post-modernism and Shakespearean romantic farce ? creating a film that should influence romantic comedies for this generation the way When Harry Met Sally did for the previous one. Tom is a handsome but awkward greeting card copywriter who falls head over heels for Summer ? who's just not as committed to the whole concept as Tom is. Love, sex, dating, infatuation, anxiety?it's the stuff of the best romantic comedies ever made?and it's all handled with a freshness not seen in the genre for some time by a bright new talent destined for great things.

Adam survives the camp by becoming the Commandant's "dog", entertaining him while his own wife and daughter are sent off to die. Years later Adam is in a mental institution for survivors of Holocaust. One day, Adam smells something, hears a sound. "Who brought a dog in here?" he asks Dr. Gross. Gross denies there is a dog but Adam finds him--a young boy raised in a basement on a chain. Adam and the boy see and recognize each other as dogs--and their journey begins. Adam Resurrected is the story of a man who once was a dog who meets a dog who once was a boy.

At the center of 24-year-old director Antonio Campos's debut feature, Afterschool, is the 21st Century media technology. With the advent of You Tube and cell-phone video cameras, everything from giggling babies to impromptu acts of violence has become internet entertainment. In such a world, can young people engage in reality without the distance the screen creates? Robert is a sophomore at an east coast prep school, assigned to capture stock footage for the video yearbook. When his assignment leads him to inadvertently filming the gruesome deaths of two of his classmates, Robert's world is altered forever. Campos manages to keep the social criticism to a minimum (though that criticism sears), instead he focuses on storytelling ? the ever-shifting allegiances of high school, the generational misunderstandings, and the difficulties of growing up. As a result, Afterschool is one of the most assured debut features in some time.
