So darn watchable that it could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.

2.5/4
It remains for a tougher documentary to more forcefully trace exactly who benefits from this shameful practice -- multinational corporations and consumers who don't ask enough questions.

Harlin's version at least had cheap thrills -- Schrader's has none.

Tell them Who You Are is breezy and informative. It offers a view of the talented, opinionated man that only his son could pull off.

1.5/4
Davis, who grew up in the border town of McAllen, Texas, obviously wants to put a human face on the countless people who try to sneak across the border, but he fails to elicit any substantive information from his subjects.

Both Duvall and Mike Ditka, who plays himself and helps coach Phil's team, spend too much of the movie on the bench, and while they're there, the jokes run thin.

Layer Cake (2005)
Vaughn's film falls short of Goodfellas, but thanks to his ability to organize a complex story and bold, color-drenched photography by Ben Davis, Layer Cake is a cocked fist of a movie, impossible to ignore.

Monster-in-Law is first and foremost a triumphant comeback for Fonda, whose acting chops complement a presence that puts most of today's stars to shame.

Mad Hot Ballroom is a crowd-pleaser of the first order.

Devos, as Nora, does much to hold it all together with a layered performance. Almaric has powerful moments as well, notably in a climactic rambling monologue about life he delivers to the boy.

Ma Mere (2005)
There's no attempt to get inside the sick minds of Helene and her buddies.

Unleashed, which swiftly works its way to an over-the-top climax, is top-grade hokum. That's a compliment.

Things play out differently than expected, though not in any particularly interesting or entertaining way.

Good news, fans of Martin Short's porky celebrity interviewer, Jiminy Glick: There's a big-screen version of the short-lived Comedy Central series, and both of you will enjoy it.

Up for Grabs (2005)
Michael Wranovics' highly enertaining documentary Up for Grabs is a wry, Rashomon-like tale.

The battle sequences here are actually worth the cost of admission, and there is exemplary supporting work by Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, Edward Norton and especially Syrian actor Ghassan Massoud as the legendary Muslim leader Saladin.

Not for the squeamish, but it is a beautifully crafted and thoughtful film that genuinely provokes.

Double Dare (2005)

Not one of Hartley's most successful efforts, but it's witty, daring, different and a welcome alternative to Hollywood pap.

Writer of O (2005)
The mystery of sex is dwarfed by the mystery of what French intellectuals are talking about.

Director Roland Suso Richter maintains tension for 2 1/2 hours, even though the resolution is almost surreal.

Mostly an excuse for cramming as much gratuitous violence as possible into a PG-13-rated flick running only 92 minutes.

An unabashed infomercial for South African tourism.

Well-intended and often poignant film that, unfortunately, too often bogs down in too much talk by its participants.

French director Benoit Jacquot is fascinated by American crime drama, but pays homage to the form by removing most of the drama and nearly all the crime.

Funny Ha Ha (2003)
Funny Ha Ha is a reality bite of a story that's as substantial as the Gummi Bears the befuddled characters eat.

Adams' wordplay and irreverence are aimed roughly at the level of a sharp 14-year-old, but the movie is so engaging, it just about makes everyone feel 14 again.

A mockumentary that veers unsteadily between satire and an infomercial for Dash's Roc-A-Fella records.

3-Iron (2004)
Kim's wittiest effort to date, with a wordless performance by Jae Hee that recalls Keaton and Chaplin.

No wonder Pedro Almodovar signed on as executive producer. We suspect Luis Bunuel would have done the same, were he still with us.

None of this is remotely funny, despite screenwriter Wayne Conley's resorting to virtually every known stereotype about African-Americans and more crass references to menstruation and prison sex than have ever appeared in a movie rated PG-13.

In not one but two scenes we are asked to laugh because the actors have inserted objects into their nostrils. Request denied.

Madison (2005)
Madison brings us the news that miracles really can happen, and an apparent case of divine intervention is the only reason this artifact is being dumped into theaters.
