Cast Away (2000)

"The choppy narrative makes Chuck's ordeal seem more brief than it is. As shown, it's merely the world's worst layover."

"The idea of cramming one's mind with these unavoidably ugly images is about as appealing as spending even one minute with the guys at Bateman's office."

Road Trip (2000)

Timecode (2000)
