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.

Aberdeen (2001)
Moland ... has a fine eye for landscapes, but an even surer touch with actors.

Kormakur ... balances tones with a smooth, mature confidence.

Burnt Money (2001)
Those who hang in for the long haul are rewarded with a sexy, moving love story.

[M]ore effective as an intellectual exercise than as an emotionally involving film.

The mysticism and numerology may go unexplained, but it's the foot fetishism, penile amputation and hermaphroditic homosexuality that show just how trippy Herapurple can be.

Never Again (2002)
Tambor and Clayburgh make an appealing couple - he's understated and sardonic, she's appealingly manic and energetic. Both deserve better.

The Master of Disguise represents Adam Sandler's latest attempt to dumb down the universe.

Kids will probably enjoy the sight of huge, bumbling teddy bears... Parents will exit wondering why this piece of unnecessary cross-promotion wasn't released straight to video.

Undisputed (2002)
With flashbulb editing as cover for the absence of narrative continuity, Undisputed is nearly incoherent, an excuse to get to the closing bout ... by which time it's impossible to care who wins.

None of the film is as funny or clever as Cates and screenwriters Ron Marasco and Michael Goorjian ... seem to think.
