While the subject of enforced priestly celibacy is important, here it is dealt with in a workman-like manner lacking vibrancy.

AmnesiA (2004)
While this twisty thriller sometimes borders on the pretentious, it's an auspicious debut by writer-director Martin Koolhoven.

Uses rare news footage and exclusive interviews to illuminate one of the biggest stories of the 1970s.

Throughout, Zhang emotes like Bette Davis.

Easy (2004)
There's much too much going on here, enough for an entire season of a TV sitcom, which Easy should have been in the first place.

3/4
The novelty of the setting and the Hollywood-style lavishness of the production go a long way toward justifying sitting through this very long movie.

[Jean-Luc Godard] may be nearly 74, but this three-part meditation, inspired by Dante's Inferno, is the work of someone with fresh, young ideas.

A loud, coarse and witless family comedy.

Alexander (2004)
As huge a travesty and a bore as 1956's Alexander the Great, in which Richard Burton looked equally uncomfortable as a blond.

Stolpovskaya uses jump cuts, flashy graphics and cool techno music to paint a delightful portrait of a post-Communist Russia overdosing on capitalism.

Go Further (2004)
Go Further may be preaching to the converted, but this easygoing documentary promoting an 'alternative lifestyle' -- living without biotechnologically processed foods -- goes down smoothly.

An endearing screwball comedy that brings to mind Jonathan Demme's Something Wild.

Owes much to Bernal, who stunningly portrays three distinct personalities.

Interminable and riddled with plot holes you could drive a humvee through.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie is full of action and silliness that will delight rug rats, but it's still hip and absurd enough to entertain grown-ups, too.

Provides a few minor thrills, but overall is talky and implausible.

Noel (2004)
Except for die-hard students of extremely bad movies, Noel isn't worth seeing.

Marchand capably builds suspense, thanks to a twisty script and nervy performances by Lucas and Quinton.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason should satisfy fans because of Zellweger's uninhibited performance, but hardly anybody is going to be demanding a third helping.

Johnny Depp adds yet another indelible, Oscar-worthy portrait to his gallery of memorable characters

Kinsey (2004)
Though it's perhaps the least salacious major movie ever made about sex, the biopic Kinsey is hardly clinical -- it's as purely entertaining as it is thought-provoking and timely.

A slick if hyper-predictable comic caper.

3.5/4
Devoid of 21st-century irony, this visually stunning, action-packed yuletide treat is sweet and, yes, magical in a way that will enchant kids and give older viewers a twinge of nostalgia.

New Guy (2004)
This is Ebiri's first feature after directing four shorts. He shows talent, but shouldn't give up his day job just yet.

3/4
An intelligent and entertaining exploration of racial and sexual politics that brings alive the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, and draws parallels with African-American identity crises of today.

Magnifico (2003)
Director Maryo J. De los Reyes and writer Mitchiko Yamamoto shamelessly press viewers' emotional buttons. But the film is so well-made and the performances so accomplished that it doesn't matter.

In the Face of War repeats the same points over and over in a manner that's ironically very much like Soviet propaganda.

2.5/4
A campy, brightly colored musical comedy based on a popular '60s Dutch sitcom that's unlike any other film out there.

800 Bullets has funny moments, but it also has a lot of drag time.

Ray (2004)
Jamie Foxx should start clearing some space on his mantle -- his extraordinary, transcendent performance as music legend Ray Charles in the exuberant Ray is the one to beat for Best Actor come Oscar night.

Enduring Love contains impeccable performances, especially by the frightening Ifans.

A thoughtful, old-school documentary.

2.5/4
There's something inherently frustrating about the illogical plot and the breezy vagueness of its message, which seems to be linking the global freezing of a near-future world with the coldness in people's hearts.

A Silent Love manages to entertain while saying something about loneliness and culture shock.

It's impossible to say if what the makers of this 'experimental documentary' have assembled is a representative sample of these home movies, but on balance it's vastly more flattering to the Bush administration than Fahrenheit 9/11 and its ilk.

Birth (2004)
It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma that ultimately reveals... not much.

2/4
A sporadically amusing curiosity that falls short of effectively satirizing the public's fixation with the minutiae of celebrity lives.
