Ni na bian ji dian (What Time Is It Over There?) (2001)

The Royal Tenenbaums (2002)

"With its emphasis on characters over events -- though a lot does happens -- The Royal Tenenbaums occasionally makes the audience, much like Eli, want to be part of the family, in spite of their neuroses and flaws." ‐ PopMatters

Dog Run (1996)

"The refusal to make the squatting and drug-using lifestyle exciting or exaggeratedly excruciating is commendable." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Oct 22, 2001

Fat Girl (2001)

"The sex in Fat Girl is ... an all-consuming, character-defining process of sorting through emotions and attitudes that convincingly perplexes these girls." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Oct 19, 2001

La Cienaga (2001)

"Within the first moments of her debut feature, La Ciénaga, writer/director Lucrecia Martel demonstrates a piercing sensibility and a sharp eye." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Oct 12, 2001

L.I.E. (2001)

"Granted, these desires can be conflicted and perplexing, but the representation here reads as a failure of nerve, a refusal to take on an uncomfortable topic." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Oct 7, 2001

In the Mood for Love (2001)

"Shines with radiant color schemes and two devastating central performances." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Feb 8, 2001

Before Night Falls (2001)

"A sumptuous, dreamy film that only touches reality in its ravaging final moments." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Feb 2, 2001

O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)

"The ideas seem half-baked at best, and the gags are the flattest in any of the Coens' films." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Jan 4, 2001

Deep Blue Sea (1999)

"Packs a brutal scare!" ‐ Citysearch
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Gladiator (2000)

"Had the filmmakers been daring enough to make the movie without its clunky dialogue or without digital filler, Gladiator could have been epic in more ways than its running time." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Mission: Impossible 2 (2000)

"The action and the intended-to-be-graceful moments are more silly than stunning, prompting more laughter than applause." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Frequency (2000)

"I realized there was a surprising potential for a provocative film if only its makers had not taken a wrong step at every turn." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Small Time Crooks (2000)

"Small Time Crooks, finally, brings Allen back to form." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Chuck & Buck (2000)

"As the film stands, it sheds some light on what happens between young boys, but very little about what happens between men after they have grown up ... whatever that means." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Yi Yi (2000)

"With Yi Yi, Edward Yang accomplishes what so few films (U.S.-made, in particular) even strive to do: present an earnest depiction of familial relations." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Dancer in the Dark (2000)

"Although less developed and satisfying than Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark is ultimately more devastating." ‐ PopMatters
Posted Dec 31, 1999

Tarzan (1999)

"Disney has crafted one of its most satisfying family films yet!" ‐ Citysearch
