3/4
Uses archival footage and music to tell a moving story that's all too common in the Third World.

Offers a rare, fly- on-the-wall view of three Hollywood bad boys -- Sean Penn, Nick Nolte and Woody Harrelson -- as they rehearse for a play in San Francisco in the fall of 2000.

Man on Fire (2004)
Man on Fire feels vaguely like something left over from the 1980s, when action heroes were one-note tough guys methodically picking off baddies.

Young Adam (2004)
Besides terrific performances, it boasts terrific cinematography by Giles Nuttgens that contrasts stunningly beautiful and grimly ugly Scottish landscapes.

Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette unveil powerful pipes delivering this numbing battery of overly familiar songs, but the aural sledgehammer fails to fully divert attention from the paper-thin plotting.

The Punisher (2004)
Travolta is terrific as a bad guy, making Saint almost sympathetic. His co-stars however, flounder in a sea of bad lines, with poor Romijn-Stamos getting stuck with the worst.

The Alamo (2004)
Despite Thornton's yeoman efforts and a remarkable 52-acre set, you're more apt to forget The Alamo than to remember it.

A dumb, pointless sequel.

Though shamelessly derivative and amoral, The Girl Next Door is nevertheless funnier and smarter than most of the pathetic dreck aimed at the nation's teens.

Showboy (2002)
A no-budget vanity production that almost instantly wears out its welcome.

At turns sexy, ultra-violent and sweet, it will infiltrate your brain long after you've seen it.

An ugly-looking mismash of a fairytale.

This satisfying adaptation of a popular novel is mostly an artistic reflection on youthful loss of innocence.

Marathon (2002)
The real star ... is Michael Simmonds, whose manic black-and-white camerawork captures the unique vibrancy of New York City.

3/4
Hickenlooper is interested not just in chronicling the L.A. music scene, but in sympathetically presenting a man who has spent his life doing little but hanging out with celebrities.

Son Frere (2004)
A harrowingly accurate portrait of the indignities sometimes suffered by hospitalized patients -- and the sacrifices their families make.

In the end, inner peace is found by all -- on screen and in the audience.

If brainless, predictable fun will do, check out Shaolin Soccer.

1/4
Kevin Spacey has only a supporting role in The United States of Leland, but this troubled-youth melodrama -- which he produced -- is very much of a piece with the phony, pretentious and preachy flicks Spacey has starred in of late.

Ned Kelly (2003)
A leaden retelling of the legend of Australia's Jesse James that has understandably been sitting on the shelf for a couple of years.

Raja (2004)
Extremely well acted, though the direction by Jacques Doillon is on the leisurely side.

Little more than 91 minutes of cheesy special effects in search of a remotely coherent story.

Worth sticking with for Hanks' and Hall's superlative acting -- and a rollicking gospel score assembled by T. Bone Burnett.

Taking Lives (2004)
Taking Lives is smarter than your average serial-killer movie, thanks to unusually fleshed-out characters inhabited by a high- pedigree cast.

Kari successfully meshes comedy, ennui and tragedy, much in the manner of Jim Jarmusch and Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismaki.

Intermission (2003)
First-time director John Crowley and novice screenwriter Mark O'Rowe -- both Irish theater veterans -- make impressive movie debuts as they sketch a huge gallery of colorful characters, beautifully portrayed by a top-drawer cast.

The remake adds little to the genre and doesn't bother with character development.
