Vera Drake (2004)
Vera Drake confirms Leigh's reputation as one of the world's master filmmakers -- and showcases Staunton as one of its great actresses.

Stage Beauty (2004)
Claire Danes and Billy Crudup certainly spark a terrific chemistry on screen.

3/4
Although taking place 25 years in the past, director-writer Sabiha Sumar's debut feature has relevance in the world as we now know it.

The documentary takes no sides, but its bleak message is all too clear.

1.5/4
Walken invests Turner, a former convict and heroin addict, with a world-weariness and pathos that far exceed anything in the script -- or the terrible makeup he's wearing.

Primer (2004)
The humorless, self-important narrative is so impenetrable, you'd have to consult a synopsis to know they're traveling back and forth in time in increments of a few hours, with unforeseen consequences.

3.5/4
Vodka Lemon (2004)
He's in no hurry to tell the story, and viewers drawn in by the warm-hearted tale and charmingly eccentric characters will be in no hurry for the closing credits.

Overlong, blandly soporific movie.

A tender tribute to Gerard Baptiste, one of 10 firemen from Ladder 9 in Lower Manhattan who perished.

Taxi (2004)
The most embarrassing SNL vehicle since Pootie Tang.

4/4
Tarnation (2004)
Caouette's triumph over his harrowing childhood and adolescence is itself a huge accomplishment -- but with Tarnation, he has used art, wit and a huge heart to forge his experiences into an unqualified masterpiece.

Fans of the cult helmer who expect the usual gore will be disappointed -- but there are compensations.

2/4
The subject is worth exploring -- unfortunately, de Seve does so in a cut-and-dried manner that never explains why these two couples were able to stay together for so long.

3/4
Dig! (2004)
An unusually insightful rockumentary, and filmmaker Ondi Timoner provides a comprehensively candid look at two hugely talented indie bands over the course of seven years.

Shark Tale (2004)
Despite the all-star cast, Shark Tale is a shipwreck.

3/4
Look at Me (2005)
On the talky side, but like Jaoui's directing debut, The Taste of Others, it offers uniformly excellent performances and smart observations on social and family interactions.

Butler's film still manages to accomplish what the candidate's foundering campaign has utterly failed to do.

Deadline (2004)
So potent, it could change the mind of even the most staunch defender of capital punishment.

Amid the pandemonium there's a sense of truly rigorous soul-searching.

Unconvincing performances and overwritten dialogue make Woman fail to resonate.

Ladder 49 (2004)
Plays as if the filmmakers compiled a list of every smoke-eater cliché imaginable and then resolutely set about crossing them off.

3/4
Using a first-rate cast and script, combined with jump cuts and vivid shots of Sao Paulo, Barros delivers a thought-provoking message about the high price of materialism and political dissent.

3/4
Rick (2004)
Daniel Handler's script has snap, crackle and pop (he's the author of the popular Lemony Snicket children's books), and Curtiss Clayton's direction is darkly crisp.

1/4
Moog (2004)
A collection of dry interviews and so-so music, it's better suited to public TV than the big screen.

2.5/4
The Last Shot is wildly uneven, but contains moments that are right up there with The Player.

Schaeffer's rip-off -- er, homage -- to Magnolia.

A pleasant but lifeless love story set in the 1920s.

2.5/4
Though A Dirty Shame is more enjoyable than Waters' last couple of films, that's largely due to the thoroughly demented performances of Ullman and Knoxville.

A gorgeous, poetic and stirring epic.

War porn, an amateurish and incomprehensible mishmash of alleged fact and fiction.

It overflows with psychological intrigue, something often missing from such offerings.

The humorless Reich makes for one dull and repetitive skin flick.

This is the spectacularly inept directing debut of writer-producer Gary Priesler, who is said to have 12 other movies in development. God help us.

Zelary (2004)
Sweet and life-affirming, although the transformation from sophisticate to peasant happens too conveniently and quickly.

Wimbledon (2004)
An ultra-predictable if essentially painless romantic comedy.

3/4
Silver City (2004)
Sayles' unabashedly partisan film moseys along in an unhurried fashion, encompassing myriad story lines yet taking the trouble to fully develop each of its many characters.
Posted Sep 17, 2004

2/4
An overlong melodrama- by-numbers, existing mainly to give Theron a backdrop against which to smoke and brood in a series of elegant period outfits.

1.5/4
One of those painfully earnest -- and pretentious -- little indies in which a pair of emotional cripples neatly resolve all of their problems within 48 hours of meeting each other.

Don't even bother trying to figure out what's going on in Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence -- just sit back and enjoy the lush, trippy visuals.
