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.

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.

The most gut-bustingly funny movie so far this year.

2.5/4
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.

3/4
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.

3.5/4
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.

1.5/4
An instantly forgettable wisp of marshmallow that revisits the same teen-crush cliches that have surely been in play since the days of the classic fairy tale it ransacks for inspiration.

Frank is a worthy subject, but this treatment amounts to not much more than a somewhat extraneous sidebar to last month's The Hunting of the President.

Shot for practically nothing by first-time director David Barker, it delivers more bang for its minimal bucks than many a Hollywood blockbuster does for its multimillions.

An astonishingly intimate look at the disconnect between the hard-partying image that earned the band the nickname Alcohollica and the behind-the-scenes reality.

Sleepover (2004)
If ever a movie could be charged with imperiling the morals of a minor, it's probably Sleepover.

Ferrell is funny spouting his weird stream-of-consciousness rants, but too often the plot leaves him hanging and he resorts to just Yelling Really Loud.
