Ararat (2002)
The metaphors are provocative, but too often, the viewer is left puzzled by the mechanics of the delivery.

Campy costumes can't disguise the incoherent plot, confused performances and lame script that send this star vehicle spiralling downward.

Femme Fatale (2002)
A uniquely De Palma kind of effluence, an exercise in auteur self-parody.

Roger Dodger (2002)
An unusually smartly written and performed American independent film.

Satin Rouge (2002)
Part of the charm of Satin Rouge is that it avoids the obvious with humour and lightness.

2.5/4
I Spy (2002)
Even the usually intense Malcolm McDowell doesn't have much spark: His main role is to press the remote control button that makes the stealth plane disappear and reappear, perhaps a foreshadowing of I Spy's cable-television future.

Not so much funny as aggressively sitcom-cute, it's full of throwaway one-liners, not-quite jokes, and a determined TV amiability that Allen personifies.

Belongs in the too-hot-for-TV direct-to-video/DVD category, and this is why I have given it a one-star rating.

The film ... presents classic moral-condundrum drama: What would you have done to survive? The problem with the film is whether these ambitions, laudable in themselves, justify a theatrical simulation of the death camp of Auschwitz II-Birkenau.

Woven together handsomely, recalling sixties' rockumentary milestones from Lonely Boy to Don't Look Back.

3/4
It's an extraordinary adrenaline-pumping immersion into historical events, and goes along way to explain the bitterness that has resounded from that day.

2.5/4
Where a melting little meringue is wanted, Demme delivers a big, doughy sticky-bun of a movie, stuffed with little currants of other films.

No film this year has offered quite the cerebral tickle, weird invention and slaphappy gusto as Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love.

Occasionally, in the course of reviewing art-house obscurities and slam-bam action flicks, a jaded critic smacks into something truly new.
