The Clearing (2004)

"Th[e] exchange[s are] played so gracefully by Redford and Dafoe, you want them to keep talking, and forget that one of them is being held against his will." ‐

The Reckoning (2004)

"[McGuigan] crams both story and theme down the viewer's throat. There is no room for interpretation, a pursuit vital to both the Morality play and the narrative film." ‐

Touching the Void (2004)

"In an era obsessed with ways to capture "reality," MacDonald rightly uses documentary to reinforce larger truths and ironies." ‐

The Statement (2003)

"Although The Statement deals with an intriguing historical phenomenon generally dismissed as a footnote, it is obscured by the film's unceasing chase." ‐

Girl With a Pearl Earring (2004)

"The most impressive feature of the film, however, is its use of metaphor and suggestion to advance Vermeer and Griet's forbidden attraction." ‐

Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003)

"Sentimental and lyrical from beginning to end, Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1 is an ode to movies and moviegoing." ‐

Dopamine (2003)

The Other Side of the Bed (2003)

"What can one say when the latest film to sweep both Spanish audiences and critics is essentially a Latin Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice ON ICE?" ‐

Northfork (2003)

"With Northfork, the Brothers Polish clearly choose to fly brilliantly and high on universal concepts, while spitting on universal appeal." ‐

Manito (2003)

"A solid effort... however, the dissonance between Manito as "realistic urban ethnography" and "high ghetto drama" is just too apparent to reconcile." ‐
