This is riveting stuff, especially in its account of how refugee culture and community spring up almost overnight.

Lumumba (2001)
Peck, who assayed Lumumba's life in a 1991 documentary, now paces the doomed man's story like the genuine thriller it is.

Hell House (2002)
The Trinity Assembly approaches the endeavor with a shocking lack of irony, and George Ratliff's documentary, Hell House, reflects their earnestness - which makes for a terrifying film.

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.

Brown Sugar (2002)

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)

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.
