T-Meter Title | Year
C+ 54% P.S. (2004) The greatest thing about p.s. is the onscreen match of Linney and Grace. - EDIT

D+ 36% The Final Cut (2004) The Final Cut's plot goes in multiple directions, while its exciting premise lays there like a forsaken jewel. - EDIT

B 53% A Dirty Shame (2004) Takes this country's Puritanical-hypocritical fixation on what we should and should not do with our body parts, and sublimely violates it. - EDIT

D- 13% L.A. Twister (2004) A ham-fisted tour through its own postmodern mechanics... No heart, no resonance, and no real message. - EDIT

B- 42% Zhou Yu's Train (2004) Director Zhou wants you to sit up and work for some meaning in every shot-and work HARD. - EDIT

A 97% Maria Full of Grace (2004) Marston doesn't cheat by sensationalizing his subject matter, and the result is a sensational piece of work. - EDIT

B- 43% 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. - EDIT

A 79% The Saddest Music in the World (2004) Maddin's masterpiece artfully reinforces that that our moments of true sadness should be as intimate as our most joyous moments of ecstasy. - EDIT

D 29% The Punisher (2004) We get Superflawedmen, not flawed men pushed by dire circumstances. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2004
C- 39% 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. - EDIT

A- 94% Touching the Void (2004) In an era obsessed with ways to capture "reality," MacDonald rightly uses documentary to reinforce larger truths and ironies. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2004
C- 23% 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. - EDIT

A 72% 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. - EDIT

A- 85% 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. - EDIT

C+ 42% The Human Stain (2003) When viewing a film, you should not be scanning your mental bank for a more suitable actor for the title role. - EDIT

B+ 34% Wonderland (2003) When the youngest student ever admitted to the Drama department at Julliard (Kilmer) plays a derailed porn god...YOU SEE IT. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2003
D 52% Dopamine (2003) The "LOVE IS REAL! NO, IT'S NOT!" banter kills the film's core issue rather than underscoring it. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2003
D+ 48% 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? - EDIT

B- 56% Northfork (2003) With Northfork, the Brothers Polish clearly choose to fly brilliantly and high on universal concepts, while spitting on universal appeal. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2003
B- 94% Manito (2003) A solid effort... however, the dissonance between Manito as "realistic urban ethnography" and "high ghetto drama" is just too apparent to reconcile. - EDIT
