Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (2005)

"It's the laugh-a-minute repartee of this odd couple that drives the movie far more than the ridiculously overly complicated plot." ‐ Sight and Sound

Three Kings (1999)

"What lingers in the mind far longer than the smart dialogue, the slightly cartoon characterisations or the neat feel-good ending is a vivid sense of the sickening nature of modern warfare." ‐ Sight and Sound

Titus (1999)

"Eager to allow Shakespeare's words to shine through as clearly as possible, Taymor shoots the dialogue scenes fairly straight, with a minimum of background action." ‐ Sight and Sound

Road to Perdition (2002)

"Contains more than enough brilliance to confirm that American Beauty wasn't a flash in the pan." ‐ Sight and Sound

Crna macka, beli macor (Black Cat, White Cat) (1999)

"The film's most memorable images all seem to be either irrelevant diversions (like the pig eating a car) or reruns of previous greatest hits." ‐ Sight and Sound

Another Day in Paradise (1997)

"Refreshingly, despite finding his original fame as a still photographer and for his meretricious Kids, Clark here seems more interested in performances than look or style." ‐ Sight and Sound

Never Been Kissed (1999)

"The script efficiently contrives a spiral of dilemmas and challenges to bring about Josie's ultimate blossoming." ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 5, 2002

Go (1999)

"Frenetic, audaciously structured and plot-heavy, packed with enough incident for at least three films." ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 5, 2002

The General's Daughter (1999)

"This salacious whodunit requires very little action, but an endless parade of dialogue scenes in which assorted suspects tell the investigating duo what happened, cueing thunderous flashbacks." ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 5, 2002

Boiler Room (2000)

"Ribisi, such a promising supporting actor in Saving Private Ryan as a medic and Friends as Phoebe's dopey brother, doesn't seem a big enough presence for a starring role yet." ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 3, 2002

Almost Famous (2000)

"These characters have none of the passion and incipient mania that made Jerry Maguire -- or John Cusack's Lloyd Dobler in Crowe's debut Say Anything -- so engaging." ‐ Sight and Sound
