Seagulls is easy to take, insightful and darkly funny.

3.5/4
It is crammed to the gills with a fine selection of the beloved comic's best work, with talking-head commentary serving to deepen and enrich the enjoyment.

The fine performances by Blanc and Melki give Belvaux' whole clever undertaking some needed weight.

The Return (2003)
Effortlessly, [Zvyagintsev] creates an aura of mystery and dread.

Destino (2003)
A dazzling, six-minute animated short that itself is well worth the price of admission.

Freundlich ... directs his first big studio film on autopilot, trudging through the motions and displaying little understanding of what appeals to young 'uns.

Osama (2004)
That it is such a powerful and indeed beautiful film is simply extraordinary.

POV (2004)
With his filmmaking partner Oren Rudavsky, Menachem Daum is a rare documentarian willing to explore the painful subject of some Orthodox Jews' intolerance towards gentiles, and he does it in a highly personal fashion.

Miracle (2004)
A by- the-numbers re-telling of what Sports Illustrated dubbed the single greatest sports moment of the 20th century.

The Dreamers (2004)
A kind of art-house Showgirls -- which actually exceeds Showgirls in its self-indulgence, shallowness and sheer stupidity.

2/4
For the most part it's either clunky (as when Alain speaks directly to the camera) or shrill.

2.5/4
What's intact from the original is the premise's big heart and the wonderful ensemble led by Ice Cube.

Blind Shaft (2003)
A stunning indictment of China's economic miracle and announces the arrival of a director to watch.

So utterly inconsequential it fades from memory long before it's even over.

This is the sort of movie that panders to teens ... while it ineffectually lectures them about the need to bear down on the books.

A documentary with a terrific name but a blurry premise.

Latter Days (2004)
Cox, who wrote Sweet Home Alabama, again trades heavily in stereotype and coincidence for his directing debut.
Posted Jan 29, 2004

An enjoyably spare and fast- moving French thriller.
Posted Jan 29, 2004

Every bit as cliched, amateurish and feeble as its predecessors.

1.5/4
Made-Up (2004)
The well-intentioned but wobbly directing debut of character actor Tony Shalhoub tries to be many things -- romantic comedy, mockumentary, a satire on beauty and aging -- but ends up succeeding at none.
Posted Jan 22, 2004

3.5/4
One of the best climbing movies ever made, doing justice to a sport that has not been well served by the cinema.

1.5/4
An over-the-top supernatural thriller so ridiculous it's unintentionally funnier than some of his recent comedies like My Boss's Daughter.
Posted Jan 22, 2004

2/4
A cast of sparkly young actors and the odd blip of genuine sweetness help sugarcoat tonal inconsistencies, the bluntness of the satire and the utter implausibility of the plot.

Empathy (2004)
It demystifies the profession in delightful fashion.

Crimson Gold (2004)
It offers a rare glimpse into the lives of the Iranian wealthy. And it does so in the service of a surprisingly bleak, radically class-conscious vision of Iranian life.

Cuba: Island of Music is enjoyable as a primer in Afrocentric music and dance. As a political statement, however, it's pretty much of a dud.

Bedtime Story seems a more appropriate name for the snoozy and unconvincing Australian drama.

Recycles gags from various, more successful gross-out and romantic comedies, but without any zest or imagination.

An entertaining treat that proves there's plenty of life left in traditional 2-D animation.

Torque (2004)
A full-throttle video-game ride for the MTV set.

The finished product looks like it was thrown together during a lunch break -- by a drunk person.
Posted Jan 12, 2004

A feather-light, doggedly formulaic romantic comedy that's almost instantly forgettable despite the sunny presence of teen queen Mandy Moore.

Monster (2004)
Jenkins doesn't stint on the sickening reality of Wuornos' abhorrent behavior -- it's Theron's complex, deeply felt depiction of a thoroughly messed-up soul that forces us to look beyond the monstrous nature of her acts.

3/4
The Company (2003)
Altman presents a fly-on-the-wall insight into the lives of a group of people whose public face is one of unadulterated grace and beauty - but whose private existence is as disorderly as anyone's.

A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.

1.5/4
All you need to know about the slapdash, bogus kiddie flick Cheaper by the Dozen can be summed up by the fact that Ashton Kutcher, making a glorified cameo as a narcissistic model-slash- actor, is the best thing in it.

Paycheck (2003)
Unlike Woo's Face/Off or Broken Arrow, there are no stunts, special effects or kinetic moments in Paycheck that really blow you away.

3.5/4
An exquisitely crafted Civil War epic that combines the epic romantic sweep of Gone With the Wind with a more intimate voice that speaks eloquently to the war-weary nation of today.

Despite its more tendentious moments and sometimes irritating slickness, Fog of War is every bit as fascinating and unnerving as its subject.
