3/5
Like Fingleton himself, Swimming Upstream is a hard-working, no-thrills drama - but it's still a winner.

2.5/5
It has zero taste, zero intelligence, zero sophistication and zero redeeming social value. So it's a zero-star movie but as far as gutter-entertainment and gross-out humour goes, it's five-star laughs.

Solaris (2002)
If you're the type to be stimulated by Solaris's weighty philosophical issues, it's a mind-bending sci-fi trip into the unknown. For all others, it will be the perfect cure for insomnia. .

1/5
It's a condescending, totally unbelievable film made worse by poor dialogue, acting and directing, all strung together by a laughably cliched Cinderella story. .

There's no hint of giant bunnies or falling airline engines; just good solid family drama. .

An underrated, dreamy drama about love, lust and infidelity amongst inter-connected Los Angeleans. Jolie rises to the challenge.

The Pianist (2002)
POWERFUL seems too small a word to describe The Pianist, a masterpiece from a master film-maker.

Roger Dodger (2002)
Roger Dodger is an enjoyably bruising tale of the inflated male ego that takes a hammering thanks to a little ironic justice.

The Recruit (2003)
An enjoyably forgettable espionage thriller marked more by these two actors going toe-to-toe as if they're in an acting masterclass rather than a Hollywood movie.

Just Married (2003)
Move over Britney Spears and all other aspiring Britney wannabees. There's a new Britney in town and her name is Brittany Murphy. .

James van der Beek not only buries his wussy Dawson's Creek character but spits on its grave.

5/5
Francis Ford Coppola's remastered masterpiece of modern-day paranoia is far more than a simple rehashing of a classic slice of cinema. It proves to be more prescient now than ever. . .

If Scorsese ever puts out a director's cut, that will be the film to watch. . .

The Hours (2002)
The Hours is a skilful, mature portrait of womanhood through the generations. In just two hours, viewers will be moved by an engrossing, interlinking story, its connections and how each woman presents a brave face to the world but is utterly alone,

Cherry 2000 (1988)

Gallipoli (1981)
Regarded as one of the very best Australian film's ever made (with Mad Max and Picnic at Hanging Rock). Mel Gibson in one of first roles, and a touching but ultimately tragic tale of war.

Quiz Show (1994)
Robert Redford's assurded true story about quiz show corruption is totally engrossing, with genius performances from Ralph Fiennes and John Turturro.

Luc Besson's lone-hitman thriller sees a 12 year-old Natalie Portman push the boundaries of love and peodophilia. As emotionally complex as it is a slick action thrill-ride. Even Gary Oldman gets in on the action as a Beethoven loving, drug-taking crooked
