Postcards From America. Steve McLean's poetic portrait of three decades in America as experienced by one gay man excites the senses but not the emotions. Shades of Fassbinder, My Own Private Idaho and a whole lot of promise.

Tales From a Hard City. Do we care if Kim Flitcroft's documentary study of living by Giro in Sheffield is blatantly contrived? Not when the results are this darkly funny. The greatest Mike Leigh comedy that Leigh never made.

Far From Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog. Jolly wilderness adventure which passes 80 minutes well enough. Brooding Jesse Bradford is the scamp stranded on an island with his pooch after dad's boat hits a storm. Moderately moist eyes guaranteed.
