Frida (2002)
If Frida doesn't tell us anything that we don't already know, it does dramatize Kahlo's life with a fiery, soulful beauty.

8 Mile (2002)
For all its grit, 8 Mile ends up radiating a joyful, hopeful vibe. It's an old-school charmer.

Femme Fatale (2002)
You don't need to take Femme Fatale seriously in order to derive great pleasure from what De Palma is up to here.

What Bloody Sunday lacks in clarity, it makes up for with a great, fiery passion.

Auto Focus (2002)
Watching this cold, detached movie, you never get the sense that Schrader cares one whit about Crane or is even curious about understanding the compulsions that wrecked his marriage and career and eventually cost him his life.

2.5/4
As much as I laughed throughout the movie, I cannot mount a cogent defense of the film as entertainment, or even performance art, although the movie does leave you marveling at these guys' superhuman capacity to withstand pain.

The cumulative effect of the relentless horror on parade numbs the movie's power as a work of drama.

3.5/4
By turns hilarious, infuriating, moving, manipulative, self-serving and, most importantly, absolutely required viewing.

2.5/4
There is a light, carefree bounce to much of Charlie that makes the film a rollicking good time even after its plot has become a drag.

Comedian (2002)
Seeing Seinfeld at home as he watches his own appearance on Letterman with a clinical eye reminds you that the key to stand-up is to always make it look easy, even though the reality is anything but.

In scene after scene, Spirited Away unleashes so much wonder and visual imagination that you end up watching the movie in a state of rapturous, awestruck bliss.

Formula 51 (2002)
Formula 51 is so trite that even Yu's high-energy action stylings can't break through the stupor.

Abandon (2002)
Too much of this well-acted but dangerously slow thriller feels like a preamble to a bigger, more complicated story, one that never materializes.

A cautionary tale with one exclamation mark too many, The Rules of Attraction simply tries too hard.

Swept Away (2002)
The fact that Swept Away got made at all implies there simply is no dissuading Madonna from her movie-star aspirations. Her tenacity is admirable, but it's also block-headed.

2.5/4
It's the performances that elevate White Oleander into something more substantial, none more so than Pfeiffer's portrayal of ferocious motherly love.

Just a Kiss (2002)
None of these characters resembles anyone you've ever met in real life, unless you happen to know annoyingly self-involved people who speak in glib sentences that could have only come from the pen of a screenwriter.

Red Dragon (2002)
By staying true to Harris' novel, Red Dragon makes for compelling viewing.

Surprises you with a reservoir of emotion and sentiment that happily counters the film's trendy ironic veneer.

What The Four Feathers lacks is genuine sweep or feeling or even a character worth caring about.
