Devolves into a series of silly fight and chase scenes in which bad guys are bloodily maimed and dispatched while most of the good guys come out miraculously unscathed

Proof (2005)
Something went terribly wrong here and one of the fine theatrical experiences of recent years turns into celluloid dross.

Asylum (2005)
It is not sufficient as pure storytelling to sustain interest...feels hollow at the center--lacking in any payoff, from an entertainment or from a thematic point of view.

2046 (2005)
No one else making films today..surveys the landscape of the heart with the sensitivity, delicacy, and depth that Wong brings to 2046.

Has a good deal of off-handed charm and enough satirical moments..to sustain interest, but it's no more than Don Juan Lite, offering a veneer of profundity, lacking in payoff.

Junebug (2005)
A quirky, moderately entertaining, mildly depressing, altogether frustrating work...Too artsy by half.

A mindboggling view into the heart of Japan

Unspeakably filthy and offensive

The comedy is feather-light and the emotions are drawn on situation, rather than on genuine involvement with substantively developed characters.

The Warrior (2005)
A work of rare and consuming integrity

The Island (2005)
Slick entertainment for those satisfied by the well-established genre of mindless summer movies.

Saraband (2003)
Bergman perceptively observes the subtleties of family psychology and creates dialogue that reveals complexities of character and relationships with riveting accuracy.

Machuca (2004)
The film succeeds...in fleshing out the central characters, lending credence to their personal experience of historically sweeping events
Posted Jul 10, 2005

A poorly-written melodrama which at times borders on the tedious
Posted Jul 7, 2005

UNDEAD (2005)
Offers both a broadly funny Australian spin and a unique attempt to make sense out of the senseless conventions of zombie films
Posted Jul 5, 2005

Not likely to engender an emotional response, so much as a thoughtful, dispassionate one.
