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.

There's nothing remotely surprising about this by-the- numbers effort.

Devolves into a best-forgotten clone of an utterly illogical X-Files episode.

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.

If this sounds like one big cliche, that's because it is.

Brainless and pointless.

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.

Clever and amusing mockumentary.

Mr. 3000 (2004)

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.

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.

A breathtakingly beautiful sci-fi adventure.

A loving tribute to cinema by Tsai Ming-liang, one of Taiwan's most accomplished and popular directors.

There's really nothing new here ... and lacking the drama and humor of Fahrenheit 9/11, it is even more likely to be preaching to the converted.

Two hours of New Age hooey.

Bang Rajan (2004)
Features scrumptious-looking jungle battles, with a cast of thousands -- not to mention elephants and water buffalo.

Uber-hip technique triumphs over substance in Reconstruction.

The story seems like yet another flimsy excuse for the aging auteur to show us how hip and sexually liberated he is.

Criminal (2004)
Doesn't exactly reinvigorate an overworked genre, but neither does it disgrace the format or the original movie.
Posted Sep 10, 2004

2/4
There is nothing startlingly new in Resident Evil: Apocalpyse, but it is delivered with some panache and humor.

Cellular (2004)
Highly improbable, maniacally action-packed.

About as exciting as watching someone else's home movies -- albeit, beautifully photographed ones.

The Cookout (2004)
A feeble mess.

Paparazzi (2004)
A cheeseball revenge thriller with an alarmingly twisted moral.

3/4
Red Lights (2004)
France has produced dozens of Hitchcock- style films since Cahiers du Cinema elevated Hitch to the pantheon nearly five decades ago, but few lately have been as suspenseful and psychologically insightful as Red Lights.

2/4
Virgin (2004)
There are some powerful emotions coursing through Virgin, writer-director Deborah Kampmeier's raw first feature, and a tighter script would have made them even more affecting.
Posted Sep 3, 2004

2/4
A long-winded and often over-the-top Italian soap opera.
Posted Sep 3, 2004

2.5/4
Delves into one of the most chronically undercovered 9/11 stories -- the still-unknown number of U.S. citizens and foreign nationals detained without trial in the wake of the attacks.

Vanity Fair (2004)
Shoehorning all these characters and plot threads into one film is perhaps overly ambitious, but Nair makes Vanity Fair an elegant showcase for an unforgettable heroine.

Hero (2004)
Full of passionate performances, sizzling swordplay, bold and dazzling hues, and breathtaking landscapes.

Suspect Zero (2004)
The latest evidence that Hollywood has run the se rial-killer thriller into the ground through overuse.

Chooch (2004)
The sort of vanity project that gives amateurs a bad name.

Bush's Brain (2004)
One of the better political documentaries flooding into theaters after Fahrenheit 9/11 and before the election.

2.5/4
As evident from The Brown Bunny and his directing debut, Buffalo 66, Gallo is talented, although in an unconventional way.

1.5/4
The supersize snakes don't even make an appearance until the movie's midway point -- and when they do, appalling special effects render them merely risible.

Greenwald does nothing with the interviews, basically just posting them, one after the other, with the hope that viewers will do his job for him. The result is one-sided and bone-dry.
