The most emotionally authentic love affair portrayed on the screen in recent years

A powerful drama about real people whose stories carry a crucial message for our times

5
The film, if less compelling than the original, is, nonetheless, persuasive and reasonably true to its source.
Posted Oct 23, 2003
6
A strong emphasis on sight gags, cameos, a little social satire, and an absolutely merciless attack on sentiment.

7
A respectful, interesting, and worthwhile adaptation

Runaway Jury (2003)
Credulity is stretched to the breaking point here...

Comes as close as it can to capturing the book's unromantic and genuinely touching spirit.

Elephant (2003)

Tarantino is like a bull in a video shop, knocking over shelves and letting the genres fall where they may.

Reeks with the stale sweat of desperate writers

Dogville (2003)
Imprints itself on the consciousness and hauntingly lingers

Mystic River (2003)
Riveting moviemaking in the popular vein...Eastwood avoids easy answers and sentimental compromises.
Posted Oct 3, 2003

Psychological percipience accompanied by gentle and droll humor

The Event (2003)
Doesn't have the ring of truth to it at all and the forced plot setup is dragged down still further by Parker Posey's flat and unconvincing performance.

Out of Time (2003)
The sure-handed direction of Carl Franklin...makes a complex story both lucid and believable.

Spellbound (2002)

At least for his fans, there's plenty of Allen-schtick to enjoy.

Demonlover (2003)
27
A potentially good story spoiled by being not just badly, but stupidly told. It therefore deserves no quarter.
Posted Sep 18, 2003

The intention...appears to be to energize people around the asylum issue, but ['In This World'] doesn't deliver the visceral punch needed to win converts.

Cabin Fever (2002)
A well-crafted, truly nasty piece of work
Posted Sep 15, 2003

Scott...delivers a competent commercial entertainment which will probably please the crowds at the megaplexes, but is essentially unremarkable.

The pieces offer little new insight and less solace. Their failure is likely as much a difficulty of the very short form as of the short-term, unseasoned response to a world-shaking event.

Thoughtful screenplay...interpreted in subtle and expert performances

What distinguishes 'Seven Days in September' are the smaller scale moments that it captures, individual human elements within the broader sweep of events.

Open Range (2003)
Costner delivers black-and-white simplifications -- the unequivocally right, justified in doing whatever they want against the demonized wrong. It's a film for the George W. Bush era.

Le Divorce (2003)
Not sparkling enough for comedy, not compelling enough for drama, 'Le Divorce' gets mired down trying to be both. It's a bland pudding trying to be a chocolate soufflé.

The points hung on this skeletal plot all seem obvious, the situation ordinary.

Seabiscuit (2003)
Every time [William H. Macy] appears on screen, and only when he appears on screen, 'Seabiscuit' comes genuinely and delightfully alive.
