The trailer is up for "In the Valley of Elah," the latest film from Paul Haggis starring Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron, Susan Sarandon, James Franco, Jason Patric, Josh Brolin and others. I noted yesterday that both Tom O'Neil of the LA Times and Pete Hammond of Maxim thought this film was a Best Picture frontrunner.  Jeff Wells at Hollywood-Elsewhere posted his review today.  "I think it's close to an epic-level achievement because it's four well-integrated things at once -- a first-rate murder-mystery, a broken-heart movie about parents and children and mistakes, a delivery device for an Oscar-level performance by Tommy Lee Jones, and a tough political statement about how the Iraq War furies are swirling high and blowing west and seeping into our souls."

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
