If you like things that don't stink, you probably liked Moon, and afterwards, you were probably all, "Hey, whatever movie that guy makes next, I'm seeing!" Well, good news: "that guy" is Duncan Jones, and you'll be seeing Source Code. Bad news: It's not out until April 2011. But this trailer should tide you over at least a little; the movie, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright, looks like the cross between The Matrix and Groundhog Day that you never realized you couldn't live without.

American Splendor. That film, an ingenious hybrid of biography, documentary, comic book, and general malaise, managed to be singularly unique in a particularly homogenized period of independent film; it appeared to mark the arrival of a pair of truly original voices. So everyone was more than a little confused by their 2007 follow-up, The Nanny Diaries, a film not so much bad as it was plain and forgettable. Anyone, it seemed, could have been behind this Upper West Side coming-of-age comedy/romance; there was nothing particularly distinctive to be found in it.
