A pretty entertaining movie, in a kick-you- in-the-pants kind of way.

Fidel (2002)
Has the kitsch appeal of a farm implement on a restaurant wall, or an Andy Warhol Mao poster: Interesting, but not for its original purpose.

Biker Boyz (2003)
Even if you don't know much about motorcycles going in, by the end of Biker Boyz, the words 'manifold exhaust' may suddenly seem clear to you.

Though the comedy is feeble, the dramatic elements -- including the budding romance between Charlie and Jessie -- cross the pain threshold.

Narc (2002)
A cop movie that refuses to cop out in the usual way.

It's impossible not to be impressed by the resourcefulness of Palestinian director Elia Suleiman's new film, Divine Intervention, which actually manages to find humour in the condition of living in Arab Israel.

If not every scene bears the Masterpiece Theatre seal of authenticity, the parade of vividly drawn characters is always good fun.

Pinocchio (2002)
Benigni's Pinocchio is extremely straight and mind-numbingly stilted, its episodic pacing keeping the film from developing any storytelling flow.

Talk to Her (2002)
Pure cinematic intoxication, a wildly inventive mixture of comedy and melodrama, tastelessness and swooning elegance.

The Pianist (2002)
Brody's performance is flawless, graduating ever so gradually from ironic resignation to pure animal desperation.

3.5/4
The movie isn't just about Schmidt as a personality, it's a portrait of his world, and Payne and co-writer Taylor show a rare compassion for the superficially comfortable.
