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.

Overnight (2004)

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.

POV (2004)
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.

2/4
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.

Happy Hour (2004)
If only its characters weren't such stereotypes.
Posted Oct 22, 2004

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

3.5/4
Anderson gives The Machinist a sickly noirish look that contributes to the creeping horror -- but it's the emaciated Bale's spectral presence that leaves the imprint.

Undertow (2004)

2/4
There is little new in this mostly dry and humorless defense of President Bush, which adds a little heat but not a whole lot of light to the political debate.

2.5/4
It's a simple tale of father-and-son bonding that director Huo Jianqi injects with a quiet power, and it benefits greatly from the gorgeous lushness of its backdrop.

Lightning is a joyous, toe-tapping celebration of a musical style born of sorrow.

The acting's uneven, to put it gently, but that's part of the demented charm of this micro-budget splatter-fest.

Sideways (2004)
It's a joy to watch comedy unfold so naturally, the laughs gently teased out from our growing knowledge of the characters, their imperfections, doubts and, yes, emotional pain.

Never rises above the level of a second-rate TV sit-com.

IF Hans Blix is still searching for bombs, he should check out Surviving Christmas, a crass, shrill and laughless disaster of a holiday comedy with a desperately mugging Ben Affleck that should be banned under the Geneva Convention.

It's a sweet and light-hearted endeavor that shows Breillat isn't a one-trick pony.

Ranks high on the squirm meter. But, unlike in most of [Breillat's] earlier work, there's no emotional payoff.

There isn't even any exciting dancing here, and what hoofing there is has been heavily edited, usually with the dancers' feet cropped off.

Hair Show (2004)
The story is so slight, a low-wattage hair dryer could blow it away.

When a character remarks near the end that 'some things are best forgotten,' she could be talking about this dreary, unexciting thriller.

Eulogy (2004)
That Eulogy has any laughs is largely a testament to the understated Romano -- he and Deschanel are the only ones in the cast who aren't straining to be funny.

Being Julia (2004)
[Bening] pulls out all the stops playing a limelight-loving stage diva in 1930s London, and her vivacious performance should guarantee her a spot on Oscar's list of Best Actress nominees.
