Miami Vice (2006)

This indie, a sweet, tart and smart satire about a family of losers in a world obsessed with winning, is an authentic crowd pleaser. There's been no more satisfying American comedy this year.

...the film's urgency can tilt toward shrillness, but nobody else has made the disaster of Guantánamo so painfully vivid.

...a lackluster comic-book movie that thinks terrorist is a synonym for revolutionary.

You have to honor its mad ambition. But sadly, it feels like a dream too long deferred.

The Pianist (2002)
In going home to tell Szpilman's story Polanski seems reborn: once again he's become a filmmaker who matters.

A delicious cat-and-mouse game flecked with intriguing Oedipal undertones.

It has real passion, real emotion, real terror, and a tactile sense of evil.

A.I. exhilarates, frustrates and provokes: it's the most ambitious Hollywood movie in sight.

The Kid (2000)
