Had director J.B. Rogers simply stuck to the sex jokes and not tried to redeem them, he'd have made a more honest film.

Rarely has a film's title served such dire warning.

Brown Sugar (2002)
20
A wise and beautiful poem to the idea that the fundamental human tragedy is not death, but the unlived life.

With its open, spontaneous elasticity, White Oleander is that rare Hollywood film -- an attempt to understand, without judgment, a world on its own terms.

Swept Away (2002)
23
Dong never pushes for insights beyond the superficial tensions of the dynamic he's dissecting, and the film settles too easily along the contours of expectation.

Amadeus (1984)
This dark, exuberant epic is nearly 18 years old, yet remains the most popularly successful film ever to render the inner life of an artist.

Sitcom humor substitutes for wit, and tedious angst supplies the drama.

All Over Me (1997)
Given great lyrical force by Folland, it comes closer to unlocking the secret lives of girls than any other recent American movie.

Gay filmmakers like Almodóvar may be providing a last refuge for decent parts for women, and for wholehearted melodrama in our hyperironic age.

Ali (2001)
The film gives Ali his due by refusing to idealize him or to gloss over his failings.

Moving and vibrant.

Abandons all pretense of creating historical context and waltzes off into a hectic soap about the ups and downs of the heavy breathing between the two artists.
