Andrew Bujalski's Results is a surprising little romantic comedy that never goes where you expect, even as it creates a story built on a triad of characters striving to be better -- in some way. As Bujalski seems well aware, there's who you think you want to be and who you really are. The distance between those two points is where things get interesting.
Truth in advertising. Damian Szifron's Wild Tales is exactly that: an anthology of surprising and unexpectedly wild short stories. Though it feels like there's going to be a connection, the individual stories share neither characters nor plotlines. Instead, they align along a similar theme: revenge, with an occasional overlay of class struggle.
