Rating Title/Year Author
Donnie Darko (2001) Anton Bitel Complex, inventive, gripping, strange, and in the end deeply moving, with more ideas in it than Hollywood has produced in the entire last decade. EDIT

The Man Without a Past (2002) Anton Bitel M's past... is almost an irrelevance, for Kaurismäki's film is really concerned with the possibility of wiping the slate clean and replacing globalised, corporate living with the values of a utopian community of barter and free association. EDIT

The Hunted (2003) Anton Bitel If only we could sympathise with Hallam as he seems to sympathise with hunted animals, this film might engage our interest; but as it stands, the whole length of The Hunted is merely a tedious deferral of the inevitable confrontation. EDIT

2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) Anton Bitel It's a pretty bold move to make a film for groups of young males about the latent sexual nature of the relationships in such groups - and this alone made 2 Fast, 2 Furious an unexpectedly hilarious treat. EDIT

Identity (2003) Anton Bitel the central twist which unifies all the film's elements is so ingenious and unusual that recognising the killer ends up being just one small part of this film's multi-faceted identity. EDIT

Igby Goes Down (2002) Anton Bitel so many of the characters are so soulless, making it difficult to see past their sarcastic, brash exteriors... So when all the iciness melts away, the sentimentality which replaces it seems unconvincingly pat. EDIT

Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003) Anton Bitel when it comes to lowbrow laughs and sexist nonsense, 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle' can get away with having its (angel) cake and eating it too. EDIT

Whale Rider (2002) Anton Bitel both an effective snapshot of the challenges which modernity brings to indigenous cultures, and a neat illustration of the power of myths to adapt. EDIT

Buffalo Soldiers (2001) Anton Bitel doing for the Cold War what Three Kings did for the first Gulf war - i.e. following the adventures of a small group of profiteering soldiers in order to satirise the self-interested smash-and-grab attitudes of US foreign policy. EDIT

Good Bye Lenin! (2003) Anton Bitel combines fairytale elements with actual documentary footage, and the personal with the political, creating a contemporary allegory of the dreams and delusions upon which the lives of East Germans were sustained. EDIT

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) Anton Bitel just because terminators are constructed, they are not always reconstructed. EDIT
