The Producers (1968)

"The star not only indulges himself gluttonously, but the director seems to be doubled up with laughter at how funny he is being through Mostel; and the film bloats into sogginess."

"The making of this picture is so sure that hope for Amelio, for his future, is almost forced on us."

Otomo (2000)

"Much of the sense of size in this account of an immigrant worker, who is only one among many thousands in Germany, comes from the performance by Isaach de Bankole."

Diamond Men (2001)

"Cohen, who has been in the diamond business, has directed with a sure, non-wasteful hand and with touching empathy for both men."

Dinner Rush (2001)

"One of the neatest aspects of the film is that it treats this restaurant like a theater set on a revolving stage."

"Lynch challenges our expectations of narrative and credibility by luxuriating in something else -- the unexplained, the making of no-sense that (he says) underlies life."

Djomeh (2001)

"Djomeh (New Yorker) is not among the best of the Iranian imports -- its thematic compass is smaller--but it certainly shares some of the attributes of the best: patience and a belief that every human face is important."

Aberdeen (2001)

"Miller has gone from relatively small-scale subjects into immensity with a delight called The Turandot Project."

"Most impressive is Sternberg's gift of concision and elaboration. Glide and dwell, glide and dwell. He knows when to compress, when to intensify."

Lumumba (2001)

"The trouble with the film is not canonization but, again, the recurrent defect in pictures about such people. The ideational data are so sketchy that it is as if we were riffling the pages of a complicated book."

"Sydney Macartney, whose previous directing experience had been mostly in television, deals freshly with situations that also could have been cliches."

Moulin Rouge! (2001)

"The net result of all this cinematic whirling, of the "wrong" music and of the parodic plot, is that nothing at all in the film moves us."

"Performed so straightforwardly, so seriously, and its characters are shown to be so intelligent, that it never seems a freakish supernatural tale."

"Without postcard prettiness, he lays the beauties of this village and its mountains before us so quietly and proudly that a warrant of nativity, of belonging, suffuses the film."

"The novel is inevitably stripped of its rich characterological garments and is left relatively naked as a clever plot -- in the basest sense 'theatrical.'"

Memento (2000)
