Me You Them (2001)
2
[Meshkini] immediately finds the amazing lucidity and emotional strength that have given Iranian cinema a worldwide reputation in the last decade.

Blow (2001)
The performances of Cruz, Paul Reubens, and, particularly, Ray Liotta and Rachel Griffiths, as Jung's working-class parents, are pure camp.

In a period devoted to digital spectacle, it's almost a shock to come across a film grounded in complex characterizations, subtle plot twists and deep moral ambiguity.

Tomcats (2001)
11
Spy Kids (2001)
Great fun, entirely uncondescending, with funky homemade special effects and a kid's sense of color, movement and general sensory excess.

12
A pleasant if unexciting update of a '50s career-girl melodrama, substituting an experienced, disillusioned heroine for the virginal innocents of time past.

13
The Brothers (2001)
While philosophical at times, the approach is courageous in its honesty, with solid performances across the board to back it up.
Posted Mar 23, 2001
14
A convenient semi-mystery without a hint of suspense.
Posted Mar 22, 2001
15
Aims for the Farrellys' patented, bracing vulgarity, but only achieves a fitfully amusing tastelessness.
Posted Mar 22, 2001
16
It's difficult to believe these unpolished, self-centered vixens could master a con.

17
Exit Wounds (2001)
Seagal's resurrection might not last longer than this film, but Wounds manages to be a superior successor to the testosterone flicks of the 1980s.

The Dish (2001)
A sunny, ingratiating film that escapes the excessive cuteness and self-consciousness that lately has become the bane of Australian comedy.
Posted Mar 16, 2001
19
Memento (2000)
An engaging brainteaser, even if the solution is a bit of a letdown.

21
A tiresome, unconvincing collection of war-movie clichés.
Posted Mar 15, 2001
22
Get Over It (2001)
The gimmicks knock the already-thin narrative structure slightly off track and the whole thing loses steam halfway through.
Posted Mar 12, 2001
23
Blow Dry (2001)
24
15 Minutes (2001)
Ambitious, cluttered and ultimately incoherent.
Posted Mar 8, 2001
25
Company Man (2001)
Most of the gags seem mistimed or misconceived.
Posted Mar 8, 2001
26
Limp, sketchy material.
Posted Mar 8, 2001
27
Yi Yi (2000)
That rare film that has found the right rhythm and density to sustain its three-hour length.
Posted Mar 2, 2001
28
An odd and appealing love story.
Posted Mar 2, 2001
29
Drastically overplotted and filled with unnecessary characters, which strangles the story.
Posted Mar 1, 2001
30
The Mexican (2001)
Playing down to their irritatingly obtuse characters, Pitt and Roberts get to do plenty of acting, but neither draws much on the charisma that made them movie stars.
Posted Mar 1, 2001
31
Shot by shot, it's a stunningly beautiful work, with a range of electric colors provided by the great cinematographer Christopher Doyle.
Posted Feb 23, 2001
32
Davies brings his elegant aestheticism to bear for the first time on a strong story line and succeeds superbly.
Posted Feb 23, 2001
33
Last Resort (2001)
As in Loach's films, the only real villains are the low-level bureaucrats of the welfare system -- a simplistic notion, to say the least.
Posted Feb 23, 2001
34
Unremittingly vulgar, violent, vile and bitter.
Posted Feb 22, 2001
35
Monkeybone (2001)
A distinctive and disturbing nightmare environment.
Posted Feb 22, 2001

37
This remake seems even emptier than the cringe-inducing original film.
Posted Feb 16, 2001
38
The romantic side of the story is de-emphasized in favor of Rock's constant patter, which seems to include entire bits from his nightclub routines.

Cusack remains a most engaging performer.
Posted Feb 14, 2001

The gags ... are effectively timed and enthusiastically played by the appealing cast.
Posted Feb 8, 2001

Hannibal (2001)
Lacks the sense of sexy transgression that made the first film a hit.
Posted Feb 8, 2001
43
Valentine (2001)
Lazily works its way through the established checklist of 'scary' elements.
Posted Feb 5, 2001
44
Alluring, but ultimately insubstantial.
Posted Feb 2, 2001
45
Poetic nonsense.

[A] harmless generic comedy.
Posted Feb 1, 2001

Behind weaves a satisfactorily compelling end-of-the-world drama.
Posted Feb 1, 2001

Bardem, with his bull's head and wondering eyes, gives an immensely sympathetic performance.
