3/5 70% Dogville (2003) Going from a story as fanciful as Dancer in the Dark to the stripped setting of Dogville is certainly bold, it's too bad the reward is so anti-climactic ‐ Filmcritic.com

3.5/5 82% Gigantic (2002) At the length of 102 minutes, despite the engaging presence of the central figures, Gigantic lags with its saturation of industry people who state how much they love the Johns, and the influential presence the band has had on alternative music. ‐ Filmcritic.com

Posted Nov 22, 2002
5/5 87% Far From Heaven (2003) Despite painfully engaging a range of harsh, nonjudgmental sensitivity, Far From Heaven is unceasingly watchable, and not simply because of the absolutely stunning photography that hearkens back to a love for Technicolor that we often forget in this new a ‐ ToxicUniverse.com

4/5 69% Personal Velocity: Three Portraits (2002) It's not trying to be an 'issue' film, nor does it consciously manipulate you to think about any cataclysmic transcendentalist theorizing, but that's precisely why it may be so effective in emotional resonance. ‐ Filmcritic.com
Posted Oct 27, 2002
3/5 88% Springtime in a Small Town (Xiao cheng zhi chun) (2002) stunning to watch and willing to keep even the most dramatic difficulties between two people to low key climaxes ‐ Filmcritic.com

2/5 20% O Princípio da Incerteza (The Uncertainty Principle) (2002) Though excessively tiresome, The Uncertainty Principle, as verbally pretentious as the title may be, has its handful of redeeming features, as long as you discount its ability to bore. ‐ Filmcritic.com
