Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

"The elegance and spontaneity dazzle and enliven, and the flattening out of space and emotion guarantee the film as a provocation to the Hollywood game and a statement of its maker's independence." Film Journal International

Une liaison pornographique (An Affair of Love) (A Pornographic Affair) (1999)

"In a movie that bets the farm on delicate balancing, An Affair of Love comes close but doesn't quite strike the needed equilibriums." Film Journal International

Julien Donkey-Boy (1999)

"The director must have wanted to impart an unfettered spontaneity to the audience. It doesn't quite happen, because of Korine's constraints as a filmmaker." Film Journal International
