Desperado (1995)
A zesty action thriller that recycles the best of the B genres and rolls them into a big-budget, pistol-packing extravaganza that in its best moments leaves you breathless with wonder.

Distinctly lacking in sentiment. Give me cataclysm, but at least act like you care.

No prizes will be handed out come year end, but this fix will sufficiently satisfy adrenaline-seekers until the next shot rolls around.

It is just as E.B. White envisioned it when he conceived of the children's story on a train to New York 50 years ago.

3/4
Airbrushed to innocent perfection, this kitschy tale speaks volumes of a bygone era when role-reversal was a fresh and illuminating concept.

3/4
Be prepared for sensory overload when you enter the world of eccentric auteurs Andy and Larry Wachowski.

2/4
The core investigation offers little urgency and a less-than-satisfying payoff.

3/4
The fallout from the discomfiting climax lingers long after the lights have come up.

2/4
The problems are firmly rooted in the moderately silly script, excessive potty humor, and a cringe-worthy climax that preaches the evils of neglecting your little ones.

Weak scripting and amateurish camerawork scream lowest common denominator.

Sublty captures the mood of the fast-track contemporary California teenager and saturates it with poignant black humor.

Identity (2003)
An unpredictable spine-tingler that has good times written all over its nasty little agenda.

Confidence (2003)
Edward Burns' cocky poise makes this energetic ode to the con virtually spin.

3/4
It may scream low budget, but this charmer has a spirit that cannot be denied.

3.5/4
Christopher Guest's newest mockumentary is on the subtler side, maintaining a delightfully dry wit and well-balance restraint.

3/4
The visually arresting animation is more than enough to compensate when narrative confusion threatens to overwhelm.

2.5/4
A wildly uneven third act manages to tie the loose ends together with some genuine warmth.

Levity (2003)
Smells suspiciously of indie self-consciousness.
