25th Hour (25. hodina) - Drama by Spike Lee. Drug dealer Monty Brogan (Edward Norton) has only 24 hours left before he starts serving a seven-year jail sentence. The movie is Lee's tribute to the multicultural metropolis of New York and its inhabitants. (9/10)

The Recruit (Farma) - Action movie by Roger Donaldson. James (Colin Farrell), a trainee at the CIA, gets involved in a cat-and-mouse game with his mentor in the Secret Service (Al Pacino), and falls for a fellow recruit (Bridget Moynahan).
