All in all, the last days of Hitler's life make vivid listening and subtitle-reading.

The Hours (2002)
Fragmented and stinking vaguely of literary pretentiousness, The Hours is a stretch -- it's missing the spinal fusion that might have held it together with the kind of cinematic coherence I found sadly lacking.

This is the kind of movie where the big scene is a man shot out of a cannon into a vat of ice cream.

A fine film that proves the past is never too bleak -- or the future too hopeless -- to discover a productive new life, and a home and family to share it.

Max (2002)
A vivid, spicy footnote to history, and a movie that grips and holds you in rapt attention from start to finish.

Chicago (2002)
Chicago is, in many ways, an admirable achievement.

25th Hour (2003)
See it for Edward Norton, who does his usual job of turning sackcloth into satin.

Sonny (2002)
As the sulking, moody male hustler in the title role, [Franco] has all of Dean's mannerisms and self-indulgence, but none of his sweetness and vulnerability.

Pinocchio (2002)
Lethal for kids and an unspeakable insult to adults, this unreleasable fiasco is a torture for all.

The Pianist (2002)
A great film of integrity and unforgettable power that leaves you breathless with gratitude.

A meticulously directed, deliciously acted, humorously written work of skill, energy and imagination.

2/4
Not bad enough to dismiss but too dense and boring to praise, let's just call Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York the year's longest and most expensive cinematic disappointment.

Adaptation (2002)
Adaptation gets an A for audacity and a Z for Zzzzz...

Solaris (2002)
Fiasco of infuriating pretentiousness and numbing incoherence.

Intacto (2002)
The movie is ingenious fun. See it.

The Pianist (2002)
Mr. Polanski is in his element here: alone, abandoned, but still consoled by his art, which is more than he has ever revealed before about the source of his spiritual survival.

Tully (2002)
The acting is good and airy, like the setting, in this much more than promising first film.

Solaris (2002)
I prefer Soderbergh's concentration on his two lovers over Tarkovsky's mostly male, mostly patriarchal debating societies.
