Finding Nemo (2003)

1/4
Shokrian, who was born in Tehran, is trying to say something about assimilation and xenophobia, but the predictable story and stereotypical characters do him in.

A remarkable and shattering documentary.

1/4
The intent was apparently a Sergio Leone-ish black comedy, but the leaden pacing, somnambulant performances and incessant symbolism in nearly every shot will soon have you thinking that The Three Marias is three too many.

3/4
A four-handkerchief heart-tugger about paternal love that's irresistible even if it's somewhat cliched.

Watching The Italian Job in a theater makes you long for a fast-forward button -- to skip past 90 eyeball-glazing minutes of generic caper plotting and cut to the chase, as it were.

Colette (1951)
I was especially impressed by Colette, in which the author of Claudine gets nostalgic about the houses where she's lived and worked.

Marker and Bellon pay fond tribute to Denise Bellon, a French photojournalist from the '30s and '40s who, by no coincidence, was co-director Bellon's mother.

Gigantic (2002)
It's hard to go wrong with documentary subjects as articulate and intriguing as childhood friends John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

The In-Laws (2003)
A strenuous attempt to recycle a vastly funnier minor classic.

E Minha Cara (2001)
As enlightening for viewers as the journey was for Harris.

Respiro (2003)
Respiro has a sexy cast and is gorgeous to watch -- but it takes more than that to make a movie worth seeking out.

The problem is that Bruce is an unlikable, self-centered character.

Slesin's presentation is conventional and uninspired (lots of boring talking heads).

Those who want to be jolted out of their gourd should drop everything and run to Ichi.

Cinemania (2002)
They seem quite satisfied with their lives, which is more than can be said for a lot of people with more conventional lifestyles.

Ken Loach's most effective film since My Name Is Joe.

3/4
While it's exhilarating fun, as an overall piece of storytelling, this reboot never really hits the heights of the ultra-cool The Matrix, which re-invented the rules for sci-fi epics in 1999.

It's a highly erotic work that at no point seems staged.

Attitude (2003)
Erratic, shoestring-budget, shot-on-video drama.

Very well-acted -- but psychologically superficial.

Good for a laugh and even better for mining fashion tips.

2.5/4
Washington Heights hits a few false notes -- Eddie's vicious put-downs of his son's professional goals seem extreme, and the tragic denouement is slightly melodramatic -- but De Villa has created a truthful representation of a colorful community.

An entertaining documentary that catches up with R&B and soul superstars whose heydays were in the '50s to '70s.

When [Reno] lets her radical flag fly, taking angry potshots at George W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Larry King, et al., Reno devolves into a laugh-free lecture.

2.5/4
Although Malkovich has a good eye for composition and a deft way with rat-a-tat dialogue, Dancer sags in a few too many places.

A superficial escapist fantasy for fans of the show.

The decade under discussion in this enjoyable documentary is the 1970s, a period that changed Hollywood forever.

Confidence (2003)
Beware movies that open with lengthy voice-over narration. Particularly if they star the ever-more -annoying Ed Burns.
