Once in a great while, a movie engages us so thoroughly that we slip the surly bonds of Earth and experience a rare moment of transcendence. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is such a movie.

An exquisite film that gratifies our senses and our emotions.

Chocolat (2000)
Beautiful to look at and easy to digest.
Posted Dec 21, 2000

Richard Lester's tangential, effortlessly clever ode to the Fab Four, given the re-mastered print and soundtrack treatment, still feels fresh and alive.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
12
The story often thrills with its message about the sinister homogeneity of evil and how good can prevail only if diverse types join together to do what's right.
Posted Dec 7, 2000
13
Director Martin Campbell (The Mask of Zorro, Goldeneye) sets out to meld a heart-tugging tale of reconciliation with a high-altitude thriller. For the most part he succeeds.

The initial feel of Cruel Intentions is so audacious that the comedown is truly a letdown.

8MM (1999)
Eight Millimeter demonstrates the extent that non-challenging roles have stymied Mr. Cage's talent.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Boiler Room (2000)
A shallow script that never gets at the heart or conflict behind the swagger.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Notting Hill (1999)
A romantic-comedy charmer in which you genuinely care about the partners-in-romance.

Leave your mind-numbing jobs and march to the nearest megaplex.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
