"Restraint, authentic feeling, economy of means are distinguishing marks in [Schroeder's] work here."

Djomeh (2001)

"Djomeh (New Yorker) is not among the best of the Iranian imports -- its thematic compass is smaller--but it certainly shares some of the attributes of the best: patience and a belief that every human face is important."

Aberdeen (2001)

"I cannot think of another film that treats so heatedly the range of emotional possibilities between a young woman and her father."

"Miller has gone from relatively small-scale subjects into immensity with a delight called The Turandot Project."

"Most impressive is Sternberg's gift of concision and elaboration. Glide and dwell, glide and dwell. He knows when to compress, when to intensify."

Lumumba (2001)

"The trouble with the film is not canonization but, again, the recurrent defect in pictures about such people. The ideational data are so sketchy that it is as if we were riffling the pages of a complicated book."

"Sydney Macartney, whose previous directing experience had been mostly in television, deals freshly with situations that also could have been cliches."

Moulin Rouge! (2001)

"The net result of all this cinematic whirling, of the "wrong" music and of the parodic plot, is that nothing at all in the film moves us."

"Performed so straightforwardly, so seriously, and its characters are shown to be so intelligent, that it never seems a freakish supernatural tale."

"Without postcard prettiness, he lays the beauties of this village and its mountains before us so quietly and proudly that a warrant of nativity, of belonging, suffuses the film."

"Nabokov's novel is an internal adventure; the Gorris-Berry film is imperfect theater."

"The novel is inevitably stripped of its rich characterological garments and is left relatively naked as a clever plot -- in the basest sense 'theatrical.'"

Memento (2000)

"Nolan uses the structure simply as a gimmick to refresh a stale story of revenge, crime, sex, a film noir that never gets any darker than gris."

"It's fascinating. Part of the fascination is in seeing how much of it is intrinsic, untarnished gold; and, as with most earlier works of masters, part of it now is in seeing the hints of the Fellini to come."

"I can't comment yet again on this magnificent work except to say that its account of French prisoners in German hands during World War I seems now even more soaringly elegiac."

Touch of Evil (1958)

"It's a flurry of pressure-cooker baroque, an extreme example of the exhibitionistic hijinks in which Welles could sometimes indulge, apparently intensified here because he wasn't doing what he really wanted to be doing."

"It's a struggle for Bacon -- and I'm not doubting the facts of the matter -- because the part is so clearly designed to knock us out; but Bacon is honest, in touch with Young's sources or lack of them."
