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

3/4
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.

Works well as a showcase for Depp's idiosyncrasies.

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

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.

Funny, knowing and immensely enjoyable.

2.5/4
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Suffers from weird shifts in tone, offensively outdated stereotypes, a cumbersome subplot -- and a supposedly fact-based story that bears only a nodding acquaintance with reality.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.

2.5/4
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.
Posted Feb 27, 2004

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.
Posted Feb 27, 2004

2/4
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

3/4
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

3/4
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

2/4
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.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

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

A delightful satire from Poland.

Teknolust (2002)
Fails as entertainment, being so ineptly directed and written it often has the feel of a high school production by kids with more money and ambition than talent.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

2/4
Suffers from largely rudderless direction, relying for any sense of profundity on the breathtaking beauty of Abraham Haile Biru's cinematography.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

2/4
Too often the filmmakers insult the audience's intelligence with far-fetched plot points, not to mention an offensive stereotyping of Mooseport's residents as moronic local yokels.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

1.5/4
This lethargic, pseudo-feminist biopic is barely a notch above a bad TV movie, with one-dimensional characters, cliché-ridden dialogue and fight scenes that are badly choreographed and edited.
Posted Feb 20, 2004

A shlocky, sloppy and crass adolescent comedy.

Eurotrip (2003)
A lazy and uninspired knock-off of the hilarious 2002 movie Road Trip.

Mylan and Shenk provide an engrossing look at these bright, clean-cut young men and the obstacles they faced in 'the land of plenty.'

Love Object (2003)
What started out as a clever and disturbing cross between Vertigo and Child's Play quickly degenerates into a cheap slasher flick.
Posted Feb 13, 2004

A boring and violent French crime thriller.

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.

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.
Posted Feb 6, 2004

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

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.
