Dark City (1998)

"It is all well and good that nobody has anything to laugh about in this movie, but the relentless gloom and frothing paranoia soon begin to drag on an earthly audience."

Mickey Blue Eyes (1999)

"This is a movie that takes Hugh's charm as a granted and makes a good argument for its point of view."

Fallen (1997)

"Unfortunately the film wafts toward Seven turf soon afterward and stalls on a heavy burden of metaphysical chitchat. Washington's dazzling good looks are the only reason to stick with it."

Waiting to Exhale (1995)

"For all the pleasure there is in seeing effective, great-looking black women grappling with major life issues on screen, Waiting to Exhale is an uneven piece."
