Rating Title/Year Author
1/5 Diary of a Mad Black Woman (2005) Lance Goldenberg ...a passion play with a guy in drag (who could ask for anything more?)... EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2005
4/5 Bad Education (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...Almodovar's meta-movie teases us with Big Ideas about those of us who love our fantasies so much that we turn them into our realities. EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2005
4/5 Off the Map (2003) Lance Goldenberg ...eloquently written but not overwritten, with a story that ultimately feels less like a literary construct and more like a spontaneous celebration of a few lived lives... EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2005
3.5/5 Millions (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...Millions pulls off the neat trick of affirming that money can't buy happiness, even as it has a ball pretending that it can. EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2005
4.5/5 In the Realms of the Unreal (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...a fascinating sort of connect-the-dots that allows us to essentially piece together our very own personalized portrait of this most curious of artists. EDIT
Posted Apr 20, 2005
4/5 Sin City (2005) Lance Goldenberg ...might just be the most extravagantly brutal live-action cartoon ever made. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2005
1/5 The Brown Bunny (2003) Lance Goldenberg ...M. Knight Shyamalan trapped in a pornorgraphic art flick. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2004
2/5 A Home at the End of the World (2004) Lance Goldenberg The naughty bits were eventually cut (so to speak) for being too "distracting," but the publicity surrounding the deletion may be the best thing the movie has going for it. EDIT
Posted Sep 2, 2004
1/5 She Hate Me (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...a movie that spews so much random, senseless, undigested matter that it seems more like projectile vomiting than filmmaking. EDIT
Posted Sep 2, 2004
4.5/5 The Saddest Music in the World (2003) Lance Goldenberg ...a little bit like what Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle might have been without the illusions of grandeur or pretentious aftertaste. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2004
4/5 Before Sunset (2004) Lance Goldenberg For all the talk, there's always something unspoken bubbling away in the space between these two ex-lovers... EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2004
2.5/5 Open Water (2003) Lance Goldenberg ...Daniel and Susan just float around bitching at each other, so the movie frequently seems like a production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in scuba gear. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2004
3.5/5 The Door in the Floor (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...a film both fluid and hermetically sealed, inviting multiple interpretations and yet ultimately reluctant to give up its secrets. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2004
4/5 Hero (2002) Lance Goldenberg ...an astonishingly graceful ballet performed with swords, arrows and fists. EDIT
Posted Aug 30, 2004
4.5/5 Talk to Her (2002) Lance Goldenberg Almodovar continues to refine the form of melodrama ... without sacrificing one iota of emotional texture or resonance. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2004
4.5/5 City of God (2002) Lance Goldenberg We've seen this story before, more or less -- the blood, the budding psychopaths, the all-too-young victims of urban decay -- but never quite like this. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2004
4/5 Dogville (2003) Lance Goldenberg ...an experience that's both grueling and, in its way, glorious. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2004
3.5/5 Mean Girls (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...a lean, mean entertainment that manages to be both playful and subversive while exhibiting plenty of mainstream appeal. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2004
4/5 Kandahar (2001) Lance Goldenberg As with so much in the Islamic world, there are things here that are profoundly beautiful, as well as much that is profoundly scary. EDIT
Posted May 10, 2004
3.5/5 The Punisher (2004) Lance Goldenberg It's dark and gritty and even a little tawdry, pushing ... deep into Death Wish territory, which is exactly as it should be. EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2004
4/5 Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) Lance Goldenberg KB2 is still basically a cartoon, albeit a more elaborately illustrated one... EDIT
Posted Apr 16, 2004
2/5 The Alamo (2004) Lance Goldenberg It wavers between traditional period adventure, cynical, revisionist history and meandering, multi-character mini-series. The action scenes aren't very good either. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2004
3/5 The Last Samurai (2003) Lance Goldenberg ...doesn't seem particularly interested in the nuances and points of frisson that are bound to occur when East meets West. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2004
4.5/5 The Son (2002) Lance Goldenberg ...a work of enormous moral and spiritual depth, where sacrifice, forgiveness and redemption are revealed as the natural extensions of the movie's humdrum landscape. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2004
3/5 The Ladykillers (2004) Lance Goldenberg ...nowhere near the Coens' funniest or most distinctive or even most endearing work. EDIT
Posted Apr 7, 2004
3.5/5 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) Lance Goldenberg It's a strange trip, to be sure, sort of like what Fantastic Voyage might have been if some acid-gobbling metaphysicians had been at the helm. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2004
4.5/5 Le cercle rouge (1970) Lance Goldenberg It's a languorous and uncompromising work that will drive some to distraction, but also a movie of dark, still beauty that will have others weeping tears of pure, noir joy. EDIT
Posted Mar 19, 2004
3.5/5 The Dreamers (2003) Lance Goldenberg The erotic parlor games in Bertolucci's film don't get quite get debauched or deep enough, and once they've run their course, the movie doesn't know what to do. EDIT

3/5 Ghost (1990) Lance Goldenberg Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2004
2/5 The Passion of the Christ (2004) Lance Goldenberg The movie's biggest sin lies not in where it chooses to cast blame, but in its bungled attempt at manufacturing what I suppose you'd have to call an epiphany of excess. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2004
4/5 My Architect (2003) Lance Goldenberg A film with all the passion, mystery, tears and joy of first-rate, fully fleshed fiction. EDIT
