4/4
"The Fog of War" is a fascinating documentary, both an examination of the forces that guide nations and a portrait of an old man who slipped through his own fingers.

Bullitt (1968)
It's more than just that great car chase. The whole film is gritty, down-to-earth and enjoyable.

Aram Khachaturian may be one of the most important composers of the last century. That doesn't make him one of the most interesting.

True Lies (1994)
Good action sequences marred by a mean-spirited, misanthropic tone.

The Company (2003)
Ballet and Robert Altman should be the most mismatched of dance partners. But, amazingly, the two are perfectly in step.

Wild Orchid (1990)
Goofy, grubby softcore precursor to "Red Shoe Diaries"

Really, when you want to learn about the ins and outs of cinema, who else would you turn to but the auteurs behind "Analyze That," "Wild Things" and "Hope Floats"?

This should be a hit-and-miss effort, but it's mostly hits.

It's goofy, cornball charm sure wears a lot better than the last two "serious" Batman flicks.

So-so office revenge comedy that seems way overpraised in retrospect.

3.5/4
A shattering piece of filmmaking that successfully ties the suspense of a real-time crime with the tragedy of a larger social ill. It will make you feel something.

For a tragedy that carries a strong emotional kick, it's wickedly fun.

Never has the Manhattan club scene ever looked so tedious; this film makes a powerful argument for staying home and renting a movie.

The Warriors (1979)
A campy treat for anyone who wants to "come out and play-ay!"

Chinatown (1974)
A modern classic that stays true to private eye-movie conventions while digging way, way, deep underneath them.

"Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!" is like one of those first dates that end with a handshake rather than a kiss.

Staggeringly inept monster movie; the MST3k version is a must-see.

Key Largo (1948)
One of Bogart's half-dozen best, a tense and atmospheric classic.

Roxanne (1987)
Terrific and charming "Cyrano" update, with one of Martin's best performances and his best screenplay.

Moore should have bowed out after the superb "Octopussy", but this is still a pretty good time at the movies.

Manhattan (1979)
One of Allen's three or four best films, it's a tender, wistful romantic comedy that uses NYC to breathtaking effect.

While the musical numbers that season "Bollywood" are brimming with color and enthusiasm, they're not exactly overflowing with technical competence.

Brazil (1985)
It has visual style and imagination to burn, but it's the ideas behind it that make it a modern classic..
