A compelling story...memorable screen characters...a tonic after the overdose of sword-waving on view this season.

My Architect (2004)
Filmmaking as personal therapy...nonetheless, worthwhile in providing background on a major architect of thrilling accomplishment

The Company (2003)
As drama, 'The Company' is dead in the water...and as documentary it reveals only the most obvious points, none in depth.

Paycheck (2003)
Operates at the level of a Game Boy shoot-'em-up: all action, bells and whistles, but no substance.

Since the film fails to communicate the necessary level of interior insight, it's like spending two hours with people you'd just as soon never have met.

Endlessly spectacular

Elegant in concept, in restraint, and in the sheer beauty of its representation of Vermeer's world
Posted Dec 15, 2003

Falls flat due to skimpy characterizations for all but the central character and dialogue of the kind of cliched banality that frequently induces pained winces.

Stuck on You (2003)

Fluff--but it's an engaging and amusing escape into romantic comedy fantasy.

If your tears flow (which they assuredly will), they will be cathartic tears, tears as much of joy and affirmation as of sadness.

'The Last Samurai' has pretensions to Kurosawa, but it got stuck in the viscous goop of soft soap.

The Cooler (2003)
A completely original film that combines genres in a fresh way and gets it right

The Missing (2003)
The elements of popular entertainment are in place, but there's frustration in the failure of the script to delve further into issues it raises, but never really explores.

21 Grams (2003)
A... tightly focused script that draws the strands together into a Gordian knot of inevitabilities

Gothika (2003)
Those who like their chills diluted may enjoy it, but anyone who prefers their horror straight up is likely to find the film a disappointment.
Posted Nov 21, 2003

[Not] a hint of suspense or even foreboding. Chabrol might as easily have been telling about a bridge tournament as about betrayal and murder.

There are enough characters here to populate a dozen movies, but not enough imagination for one.

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

The film, if less compelling than the original, is, nonetheless, persuasive and reasonably true to its source.

A strong emphasis on sight gags, cameos, a little social satire, and an absolutely merciless attack on sentiment.

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.
