Movie Review Catch-up: Ziplist Edition

Here’s another five-pack of quickie reviews. This time, I’ve selected five movies I’ve watched recently on DVD through Zip.ca. Zip is one of the Netflix alternatives available here in Canada (Netflix is not available in Canada), where for a monthly fee, they mail you DVDs for rental. It’s been a good way to catch up on movies that may have skipped past me in theatres (often this means foreign language or documentary films), or older titles I’ve always thought about seeing, but never remember when it comes time to go to the video store (especially since it’s rare that I walk through the older stacks). I recommend it to DVD (or Blu-Ray) watchers in Canada, and, hey, if you’re interested, let me know. I get membership points when people I refer to Zip become members.
Read on for reviews of:
After the Wedding (2007)
Desert Blue (1998) 
In the Valley of Elah (2007)
The Man Who Wasn’t There (2001)
A New Wave (2007)
