22% Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1994) " There are just too many half-cooked ingredients in this utopian stew of a movie." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
61% Disclosure (1994) " In this world of Information Highway sophistication and virtual-reality marvels, the pivotal plot points are all rickety coincidences: an overheard conversation, a fortuitous phone call." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
88% The Usual Suspects (1995) " For many true movie fiends, noir is the key American movie type, and the most fun when it's done right. The Usual Suspects is done right." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
52% Shadows and Fog (1992) " Shadows and Fog is Woody Allen's first mystery movie. The mystery: what caused this total breakdown of a unique artist?" — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
63% Strange Days (1995) " Director Kathryn Bigelow comes closer than any other filmmaker to turning movies into a virtual reality trip." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
54% City Hall (1996) " Its chief pleasure is the acting of the big cast, notably Pacino. At 55, he has a haggard, life-wrestling beauty and a street eloquence that has more innocence than De Niro and more sincerity than Nicholson." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
63% Kansas City (1996) " Altman loves to explode movie genres, and his script, co-written with Frank Barhydt, fuses the classic '30s screwball comedy and crime film." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 18, 2013
39% 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) " Here's a one-word review of 1492: hubris." — Newsweek
Posted Oct 18, 2008
97% Babe (1995) " It has a surprising charm." — Newsweek
Posted May 13, 2008
73% Cop Land (1997) " Mangold is something of a pseudo-Scorsese." — Newsweek
Posted Apr 9, 2008
78% Braveheart (1995) " Braveheart looks like a true epic -- even if it is both bloody and bloody long." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 28, 2008
77% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) " From the already famous 'mirror' love scene, played with a carnal sweetness that's rare in the brittle, cynical sexuality of film today, to the anger, fear and pain of their final confrontation, Cruise and Kidman are open and touching." — Newsweek
Posted Jan 1, 2000
39% Black and White (2002) " Maverick moviemaker James Toback (Two Girls and a Guy) has latched on to the most fascinating cultural phenomenon of the American moment." — Newsweek
