Louise Bolotin is Screenjabber’s TV critic. She has a penchant for quality drama and quirky documentaries, slums it with EastEnders and pities people who watch reality TV, which might be why she never writes about The X Factor.

The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen)

Set in East Berlin in 1984, this remarkable film deals with love, loyalty, venality, fear and difficult moral choices with style and a quiet confidence that impresses throughout.

Alpha Dog

Like Larry Clark’s Bully or Tim Hunter’s excellent River’s Edge, Alpha Dog is a fascinating based-on-a-true tale about, ostensibly, the cheapness of teenage life.

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

Eleven years — that’s a long time in videogames and Command & Conquer has been the daddy RTS for all that time.

Half Nelson

Dan (the deservedly Oscar-nominated Ryan Gosling) is a history teacher in an inner-city Brooklyn school. He’s also a drug addict.
