Ross McElwee shows just how far subtlety can go with his latest charming effort.

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.

Overlong and heavy-handed, semi-autobiographical dramedy.

Unvarnished and raw as the punk pioneers whose turbulent trajectory it traces, End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones is a true fan's nirvana.

Never rises above the level of harmless video fare.

Mean Creek (2004)
Estes and his cinematographer, Sharone Meir, present a vision of paradise and innocence lost in this beautifully understated drama.

2/4
The lively whirl of debauched, drug-fueled parties and toffee-nosed exchanges between heiresses and aristocrats fails to mask the essential hollowness of the narrative.

The acting is serviceable at best, the direction unfocused -- and the special effects and makeup cheesy-looking.

1.5/4
It all plays very much like an extremely drawn-out episode of Lassie updated with references to child, spousal and dog abuse.

A loving portrait of 50 years of pop music and a man who by all accounts was a musical genius.

Other World (2004)
A melodramatic import from Algeria, is so relevant in this age of global terrorism, it's a shame it isn't much better.

Stander (2004)
A second-rate action picture that's content to use apartheid as a colorful background.

Code 46 (2004)
The diminutive actress [Morton] and the much taller Robbins make the season's most improbable screen couple since Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones in The Terminal.

Open Water (2004)
Wrings every possible drop of tension out of a simple premise and a micro budget.
Posted Aug 6, 2004
25
2/4
The jaw-droppingly nasty second act is intriguing, but it veers into territory so dark that it sucks the air out of the bouncy chick flick that surrounds it, making for one confused -- and confusing -- comedy.

Collateral (2004)
Collateral has such classy trappings, you're constantly expecting more -- but while there may be less here than meets the eye, this is solid stuff in the midst of Hollywood's dog days.

Does generate a fair amount of erotic tension and sly commentary on psychoanalysis.

Its famous passengers celebrate with delirious joy the pure, unadulterated magic of music.

Uniformly excellent performances keep this destabilizing tale ticking, yet one can't help wishing Hollywood had combined this cast and these timely themes with a little bit of imagination to come up with something fresh.

The Village (2004)
The Village pours on creepy atmosphere, but this dud is too intent on delivering its liberal 'message' to actually deliver the kinds of scares it promises in the terrific trailer.

So terrifically entertaining, it would be a shame if it didn't inspire a companion piece on New York.

Garden State (2004)
Braff proves himself a master of modulation, keeping a sure grip as the film's tone shifts like quicksand from humor to pathos and back.

She Hate Me (2004)
May not be subtle or disciplined, but it is funny as hell.

There are a few effective scenes ... but not enough to keep Ju-on on the fright track.

Brims with energy, carefully drawn characters and fine acting, and sad-eyed Deborah Ten Brink, as Manu's daughter, is a scene-stealer.

Deb Ellis and Dennis Mueller's tight and deceptively low-key documentary lets the subject eloquently speak for himself.

Nola (2003)
A dubious script that detonates into a full-blown disaster midway through.

A cheaply made, occasionally repetitive, but passionately argued documentary.

A peculiarly bloodless variation on Jules and Jim suffused with the kind of pretentious gentility that some critics will mistake for seriousness.

By ensuring that the focus remains on the captivating Moreno, Marston gives life to a pawn in an ugly game.

Flavors (2003)
There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some.

Freestyle (2000)
A solid documentary that examines the art's roots, from ad-libs by black preachers to 'toasts' delivered by Jamaican immigrants over instrumental tracks in the '70s South Bronx.
