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.

Wait for Two Men Went to War to go to the small screen.

1.5/4
A violent, would-be film noir that strains with limited success for tragic resonance and gritty authenticity.

Dogville (2003)
A stunning display of a filmmaker adventuring on the far side of what's possible.

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

3/4
Worth sticking with for Hanks' and Hall's superlative acting -- and a rollicking gospel score assembled by T. Bone Burnett.

Jersey Girl (2004)
The writer-director brings nothing new to the shopworn family-vs.-work dilemma.

Divan (2004)
An absolutely charming first-person documentary.

2.5/4
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.

3/4
Kari successfully meshes comedy, ennui and tragedy, much in the manner of Jim Jarmusch and Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismaki.

2.5/4
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.

This is a patience-testing curiosity strictly for the veteran rocker's hard-core fans.

Bon Voyage (2004)
There's too much going on in terms of characters and side plots.

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

Its thrills are too cheap to be worth a $10 movie ticket.

Glowing with the incandescence of a true movie star, the magnificent Gwyneth illuminates this entire, many-splendored production.

Maestro (2005)
Anybody involved in the underground scene might get a kick out of Maestro -- but others will likely be bored stiff.

3/4
Don't be put off by the title. Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself -- director Lone Scherfig's follow-up to Italian for Beginners -- deals with suicide and terminal illness, but she manages to keep the proceedings light and airy.

Spartan (2004)

3.5/4
Has much to say about solitude and friendship and just plain coping with life.

Grief is never ordinary, so while the bereaved Israeli family at the center of first-time writer-director Nir Bergman's delicate tone poem may be unremarkable, their suffering is singular.

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London should have been stopped at customs -- as family entertainment, it constitutes child abuse.
Posted Mar 12, 2004

2/4
Top-notch cinematography and set design that perfectly capture a hardscrabble medieval milieu, along with artful but sluggish direction by Paul McGuigan, make this a superficially faultless production that somehow lacks juice.

Isabelle Huppert is such a wonderful actress, it's a shame that her latest film to reach our shores, La Vie Promise, directed by Olivier Dahan, isn't better.

2.5/4
Probably the most enjoyable Hollywood update of a decades-old TV series since the first Brady Bunch movie.

Hidalgo (2004)
Suffers from weird shifts in tone, offensively outdated stereotypes, a cumbersome subplot -- and a supposedly fact-based story that bears only a nodding acquaintance with reality.

2.5/4
Club Dread (2004)
Unencumbered by logic or narrative cohesion, the freewheeling lunacy of Club Dread sits squarely in the guilty pleasure zone.

Risk/Reward (2004)
A quietly compelling documentary that is refreshing in both form and content.

Twisted (2004)
Utterly devoid of suspense, energy or credibility.

There are many funny lines and situations, accompanied by strong performances all around.

It's more like a routine home video with arty pretensions.

Alila (2004)
Gitai ... records the comings and goings with a keen eye.

1.5/4
Becomes laugh-out-loud awful, with dreadful, lame lines delivered painfully badly -- as if a different screenwriter and director had taken over for the movie's final act.

Mel Gibson's Passion, though well-acted, technically impressive and initially moving, is for the most part not beautiful and certainly not ennobling.
Posted Feb 24, 2004

An impressive, ultra-violent -- and deeply troubling -- take on Jesus' final hours.
Posted Feb 24, 2004

3/4
A cheerfully trashy, dead-on spoof of the B-movie genre.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

It's mostly a well-acted, expertly directed comedy with characters and situations of truly universal appeal.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

2/4
There aren't many surprises as the story unfolds in soap-opera fashion, with a happy ending for all concerned.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

Little more than a supersized version of the popular PBS animated series that's stopping briefly in theaters en route to its natural habitat -- video.

Second-rate soft-core porn with art-house pretentions.
