Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
93% Before the Revolution (Prima della rivoluzione) (1965) The style, the narrative and the message may not be particularly revolutionary in themselves, but Bertolucci as a director with enormous promise is still in there, pitching away.‐ Monthly Film Bulletin

85% The Sixth Sense (1999) Constantly on the brink of explanation, The Sixth Sense in fact derives most of its fascination from explaining next to nothing.‐ Sight and Sound

25% Mission to Mars (2000) There's some throwaway fancy camerawork at the beginning and a repeat of his shock-shot trick from Raising Cain, but otherwise De Palma's own ride appears to be largely on autopilot.‐ Sight and Sound

61% The Patriot (2000) The main irony, of course, lies in the film's title, which suggests that the absurdly flag-waving activist should be taken at face value despite the ample evidence that defending his country is the last thing on his mind.‐ Sight and Sound

93% The Limey (1999) The film is subtly stolen by Amelia Heinle, joining such actresses as Andie MacDowell, Elisabeth Shue, Betsy Brantley and Jennifer Lopez as the latest in a line of Soderbergh's saving graces.‐ Sight and Sound

87% The Matrix (1999) If the Wachowskis claim no originality of message, they are startling innovators of method.‐ Sight and Sound

86% Faithless (2001) If Ullmann has unquestionably appropriated from her years with Bergman (and Josephson) a magnificent empathy with her players, she is also rewardingly attentive to visual detail.‐ Sight and Sound

73% A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) At least it restates HAL's case with commendable vehemence and a kaleidoscopic ingenuity.‐ Sight and Sound

76% Black Hawk Down (2001) A biased historical reconstruction of extreme physical peril.‐ Sight and Sound
