Deja Vu (1998)
In a mood for a little O. Henry? Then you're in luck. In this most whimsical of romances, auteur Henry Jaglom, has again created another of his unconventional opuses

Overwhelmingly romantic, subtly cynical, and constantly entertaining, "The Chambermaid and the Titanic" is an example of how to make a superb film for less than $200 million.

Bulworth (1998)
one of the hardest-hitting and unblinkingly brave political satires to hit American screens since "Dr. Strangelove."

a clever conceit, but it's one that eventually wears out its welcome.

The result is a startlingly funny, at times desperately despairing, symbiosis of lower-class lives trying to make the best of the few assets they have.

a study of the difficulties working-class love faces when confronted with unemployment, past betrayals, and a deteriorating social structure

Multiplicity (1996)
Whatever you know about cloning, leave at the theater door. Whatever you know about the modern housewife, shuck that, too. The feminism of "Multiplicity" is barely circa 1959.

Striptease (1996)
For a movie with more bare breasts than any two tattered issues of "Playboy" and "Hustler," "Striptease" is the flattest offering of the year.

a totally charming, though lightweight, look at a childhood friendship

2.5/4
The most exciting characters are killed off too early, and what we're left with is a Satan's "Seasme Street."

4/4
In her essay, "A Theory on Female Sexuality" (1966), American psychiatrist Mary Jane Sherfey noted that "the strength of the [sex] drive determines the force required to suppress it."

3.5/4
Park, one of Korea's most acclaimed directors, here displays why he is so honored. Mixing farce with real pain and making it work is always a major accomplishment.

House Arrest (1996)
MGM can make millions with House Arrest. All they have to do is allow free admittance, and charge $10 a head for those wanting to run out of the theater before the end credits roll.

The Break (1998)
if you haven't seen a film this month with an ex IRA hero, you won't go wrong with "The Break."

Artemisia (1997)
an always perceptive look into the life of an artist only previously known to the most academic of us. Merlet brings the sixteen-hundreds alive with all its wantonness.

How could you not like a film which features Harvey Fierstein as a moyl with two-pierced ears? You simply can't.

What makes this wonderfully deranged film fly is Rupert ("Maurice"; "Where Angels Fear to Tread") Graves.

a confused Gulf War flick adopting the structure of "Rashomon," the sentimentality of "Love Story," and the souls of Hollywood hacks.

Alaska (1996)
Charlton Heston, though he has saved the Jews and a whole bunch of other distressed folk in the past, along with painting the Sistine Chapel, can't rescue his son's picture.

Nigh perfect Chaplinesque slapstick comedy.

That Kiarostami keeps us guessing and caring to the very end as to how Mr. Badii will answer these questions, and that he accomplishes this concern on our parts with a startling spareness, is nothing less than Divine.

So good-natured and peppered with so much nudity and so many crazed drag queens, you'll find yourself more than willing to overlook its poor sound quality, mixed bag of actors, and lack of suspense.

I Went Down (1998)
This good-natured, rough-housing Irish comedy is one of those buddy pictures where two oddly matched chaps thrown together by caustic Fate eventually save each other's life and become the best of buddies.

This woman is so grating, so self-absorbed, and so without a sense of humor, you can't be sympathetic to her self-inflicted chastity. Katie deserves to be alone. Sadly, she's wound up on the screen.

Nimble, crackerjack entertainment with the crazed, anything-goes humor and the visual splendor we have come to expect in the best of the Coen Brothers' offerings.

... when Ms. Rand, who died in 1982, is verbally sparring with the likes of Phil Donahue or Mike Wallace on old TV broadcasts, she comes alive.

Bird of Prey (1996)
At one point, Kily/Tilly notes: "Parents! You can't live with them. You can't live without their Mastercard." Hopefully, that will be the only sentence I remember from this abomination, and if the Lord is merciful, not even that.

a very funny comedy. Sort of like a B'nai B'rith version of "Parenthood."

Wild Things (1998)
What "Titanic" supplied for female teens, "Wild Things" will supply for their male counterparts.

Finally a Rocky Horror Show to greet the millennium. Welcome to Woop Woop is indisputably the best "bad" film to hit our screens in many a moon.

Twilight (1998)
Imagine a Medicare version of the private eye Paul Newman played in both "Harper" (1966) and "The Drowning Pool" (1976), and you have "Twilight."

Sphere (1998)
Sphere yearns to be a philosophical epic but it's final and only edict is so rudimentary as to barely exist: man is not yet 'ready' either intellectually or emotionally for the gifts E.T.'s are willing to share with us.

Jon Bon Jovi, with his fiendishly angelic smile, thick, unruly locks, and piercing, flirtatious orbs, is slowly grooming himself for stardom.

the miscasting of Ms. Elfman as someone with a brain defies belief.

A little more "Kissing" like this, and years from now it's quite possible "Friends" will be all Schwimmer is remembered for.

a film more noteworthy for its title's lack of commas than for any other asset

Pauline Kael noted the effort "demonstrates how even a gifted Frenchman who adores American musicals misunderstands their conventions."

Cameron, with her unique beauty and unquittable smile, has a way of grounding the most ridiculous situations.

Madeline (1998)
No horribly arch double entendres to draw in audiences who can't spend two hours in a theater without having their libido massaged.

Woo Kam Peng's lowbow Hong Kong comedy has the vitality of a Keystone Kops comedy, the sophistication of Gilligan's Island, and the budget of an inner city cake sale.
