"Joe" paints a rich, multilayered portrait of a hardscrabble existence in this community, not unlike the world we encountered in Debra Granik’s "Winter’s Bone."

On the face of it, "Only Lovers Left Alive" is original and intriguing: Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston play vampires who have been married for centuries.

Under Declan Lowney’s direction, "Alan Partridge" is content to glide rather than push, providing fairly consistent laughs rather than building to a comic crescendo.

As a fan of Drake Doremus’ earlier films, "Douchebag" and "Like Crazy," I must admit to being disappointed with "Breathe In."
