Winchell (1998)
A biopic that's as lively and vivid as its subject.

Used People (1992)
Mastroianni and MacLaine are both fine, but the film is a little too cutesy for its own good.

Mira Nair's feature debut is a moving and powerful look at people for whom survival itself is a major achievement.

Breaking In (1989)
A low-key and intriguing teaming of John Sayles and Billy Forsyth that features a terrific performance by Reynolds.

The story is thin, but there's a consistently wonderful over-the-top mentality.

Nolte's terrific performance isn't enough to save this sappy, painfully phony piece of psychobabble.

Diamonds (1999)
Douglas struggles honorably with his stoke-impaired speech and a shoddy story.

GoodFellas (1990)
A highly disturbing but mesmerising look at the joys and dangers of life in the mob. One of Scorsese's best.

Lavish and disturbing, if somewhat cold. Adjani is typically solid.

This look at the making of "The Last Picture Show" and "Texasville" has some eye popping revalations. It's too bad the clips from the first film are reproduced in such a blurry manner.

A gripping thriller with a terrific performance by Garfield. It seems only the good peformers and directors got blacklisted (in this case Garfield and Polonsky).
