John Q (2002)

After 'Collateral Damage', you might imagine that most every aggrieved father cliché has been unturned. But no. Here comes 'John Q'.

9/11

CBS defended '9/11' by explaining that no deaths were filmed and that the footage would be 'respectful.' Yet, this is completely untrue.


Edge of Outside

As much as the lines between 'independent' and 'mainstream' movies seem impossibly blurred, the impulse to mark their difference appears irresistible.


Meet the Parents

The storyline develops as we know it will. Except for one thing: the primary couple is DeNiro and Stiller.


Hannibal (2001)

As his immense popularity suggests, there is something about Lecter that appeals to 'us', there appears to be some level on which 'we' all wish we could be a little more like him, which is precisely what the filmmakers are banking on. And this is, in the end, the scariest thing about 'Hannibal' -- its perverse worship of the cannibalistic Doctor.


Heartbreakers (2001)

Longtime 'Simpsons' writer and executive producer David Mirkin's predilection for wickedly witty cartoonishness is only slightly tempered in his live-action movies.


15 Minutes (2001)

Every woman in '15 Minutes' is a function of the film's overriding theme, that tabloid culture is all about getting a rise out of otherwise cynical cops and villains, reporters and viewers.


Flawless (1999)

These are the first of many derogatory adjectives that come to my mind when trying to describe writer-director Joel Schumacher's new film, Flawless, which stars Robert DeNiro and Philip Seymour Hoffman (the latter being one of my favorite character actors, who has, sadly, two recent misses with Flawless and The Talented Mr. Ripley).


Blow (2001)

'Blow' is all about how reality and money get mixed up.
