3.5/4 83% Up and Down (Horem Pádem) (Loop the Loop) (2004) It's been a long time since a movie allowed so many diverse narratives to fold into so unexpected, unified and satisfying a story.‐ Chicago Tribune

2/4 33% You I Love (Ya lyublyu tebya) (2004) To say the epilogue strains credibility is a kindness. The filmmakers seem set on a happy ending, no matter what the story itself is telling them.‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 6% Testosterone (Testosteroni) (2004) This is a movie in which things happen for no reason other than that the director wills them to happen in order for something else to happen, logic be damned.‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 26% Anatomy of Hell (2004) A ponderous but very, very explicit exploration of gender roles and fears that frequently seems like a parody of the genre.‐ Chicago Tribune

2/4 27% A Day Without a Mexican (2004) The movie in its extended version is frequently muddled, emotionally messy, a little heavy-handed and misses the real opportunity presented by the new format.‐ Chicago Tribune

1/4 0% National Lampoon's Gold Diggers (2004) For the most part, The Gold Diggers is not even chuckle-producing. At best, it might warm a cockle or two or provoke a bit of a smile.‐ Chicago Tribune
