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

Morning Raga (2004)
Resolves its conflicts along familiar, Hollywood-friendly lines.

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.

3/4
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.

2/4
The Ring Two (2005)
Borrowing liberally from the Exorcist and Omen movies, and with little regard for credibility, The Ring Two has a familiar ring to it.

Face (2005)
It's a tale worth telling again -- especially if you feel the material as strongly as recent Columbia film-school grad Bertha Bay-Sa Pan seems to.

Too bad Allen didn't throw out the grim half of the movie and start over.

Ice Princess (2005)
If you're wondering which way the movie is going, note that it isn't called Quadratic Equation Princess.

Don't Move (2004)
The script is morose and unfocused -- not to mention hard to believe and insulting to women.

The film is thoughtful entertainment, not medicine.

A remarkably smart and weird film, even if it's sad and sometimes difficult to watch, with jokes designed to make you cringe.

Isn't a total loss, but neither does it have the charm of The Full Monty or other feel-good indie Brit flicks it emulates.

Off the Map (2003)
Scott's work as a director lacks the sense of vivid urgency he's displayed as an actor.

Millions (2005)
Give Boyce and Boyle credit for daring to be strange, but this enchilada is so overstuffed, it's falling apart.

Hostage (2005)
The film quickly collapses into incoherence with a barrage of bullets, Molotov cocktails and the arrival of a SWAT team.

Sheriff (2005)
An admirably realistic portrait of police life, pointedly different from the sensationalism of TV's Cops.

The directors of this documentary about our troops in Baghdad tell us more about their own views than the soldiers' ...

Dear Frankie (2005)
The film is soft and sticky, but it deserves a (small) audience.

Has no profound statements to make, but it does provide warm and fuzzy comfort.

1.5/4
The Jacket (2005)
The characters in the tepid sci-fi thriller The Jacket, starring Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley, are so flat and the dialogue so dull you expect it to be one of those movies whose existence is justified by a big final twist.

The Pacifier (2005)
Makes last week's cinematic exploration of surrogate parenthood by an authority figure - Man of the House, with Tommy Lee Jones -- look like a Billy Wilder comedy in comparison.

Fox can't decide if Walk on Water is a terrorist thriller or a gay buddy story, and neither can the viewer.

Utterly forgettable -- and, yes, utterly uncool.

A mystery that isn't suspenseful so much as realistic, in which the detective's motivation is understandable and the story moves the way life does, instead of as a thrill ride.

Sunset Story (2003)
Gabbert expertly delivers a far more powerful message with honesty, humor and palpable respect.

While kids older than 8 may be too jaded to sit through this cute flick, at just over an hour, it may be the perfect fit for first-time filmgoers.

It's the well-wrought details that explain, perhaps better than any earlier film, how an entire country bought into Hitler's genocidal madness.
