A well-made and heart-rending Italian Schindler's List.

Has the same propulsive, punk-rock vibe as Trainspotting and 24 Hour Party People.

A documentary chronicle of the 2001 Kumbh Mela, a sort of spiritual Woodstock held every 12 years near Allahabad, India.

Shoddily made, boring and, most shockingly, without a single decent scare.

You may call the film blingsploitation but its fun-loving hoodlums know who's fooling whom.

3.5/4
Palindromes (2004)
[Solondz] is a blazing original (despite his bland settings), he has a carefully considered point (despairing as it is) and he never denies humanity to even stupid or despicable characters.

There's little you haven't seen in any number of French flicks, but then, most of them didn't have Gainsbourg.

Friend (2005)
A chilling, tense mystery.

Will disgust many (probably most) viewers as it cements Moodysson's reputation as one of today's most daring filmmakers.

Eros (2004)
A flaccidly pretentious and snooze-inducing trilogy of allegedly racy tales.

Winter Solstice is a well-built machine that dunks you into a big warm vat of sadness.

Kung Fu Hustle is an absolute hoot.

Sahara (2005)
The one-liners, mostly bland, are used so liberally that they water down the action.

Girl Play (2004)
Exactly why we should care about these narcissists is a mystery.

There is exhilarating footage from more than 50 cameras, many in the vehicles.

Kontroll calls itself a thriller, and you will agree if you are excited by scenes of bored inspectors arguing with sullen straphangers.

Dot the I (2003)
It's a hugely entertaining thriller disguised as a chick flick.

Sin City (2005)
Unlike anything you've ever seen before.

Sometimes beautiful to look at but ultimately too poetic for its own good.

There is much to enjoy in the struggles and triumphs of Latifah's Gina Morris.

Dreadful acting, direction and script.

Director/writer Savi Gabizon has a great idea. But he ruins it by devoting too much time to colorful but unnecessary characters.

Naked Fame (2005)
This is ultimately a sunny movie full of likable characters.

Unfortunately, the filmmakers let the ladies prattle on too long about issues that would only matter to the most rabid wrestling aficionados.

2.5/4
D.E.B.S. (2004)
Most of the second half is taken up by the surprisingly sticky, amateurishly acted love story about desperate lovers on opposite sides of the law, and there are long stretches without laughs.

2.5/4
When Daniel Day-Lewis sprays lead in his new film, though, we're supposed to consider him a misunderstood romantic, a crusading outlaw. Bob Dylan keeps popping up on the soundtrack to make sure you get the point.

Guess Who (2005)
Guess Who uses two-fifths of the title and gives us one-tenth the entertainment value.

Mildly amusing, but hardly fabulous and awfully long.

Mondovino (2005)
Well worth seeing as an impassioned critique of the impact of conglomerates on all forms of international culture, not just wine.

Despite reams of maudlin narration, McKidd's powerful performance as a conflicted man makes this beautifully shot low-budget feature worth checking out.

Shiza (2005)
A stylish portrait of down-on-their luck people with just one goal in life: survival.

Steamboy (2005)
Loaded with eye candy, though it lacks the sophisticated storytelling and character development of Japanese director Katushiro Otomo's classic Akira.

Milk & Honey (2005)
Some fine performances shine through in Joe Maggio's pretentious, credulity-straining dramedy.

You have to wonder why Shakhnazarov, one of Russian's most experienced filmmakers, didn't take more care with the script.

Caland is effortlessly cool as the half-charming, half-annoying wannabe (he'd make an ideal Euro-baddie in a thriller), and the film is all the funnier because it's played totally straight.
