Election (1999)

High school sucks. While this is currently a headlines-worthy observation, movies about high school have been underscoring it for years. From Blackboard Jungle, Carrie, Jawbreaker, and Heathers, to Cooley High, Scream, The Ice Storm, and Never Been Kissed, the point is the same: in high school, you spend way too much time worrying about cliques, grades, popularity, and sex.


The End of the Affair (1999)

On its surface, Neil Jordan's film of Graham Greene's The End of the Affair is about love. In particular, it appears to be about heterosexual love, or maybe the similarities and disjunctions between spiritual and physical manifestations of such love.


Dancer in the Dark (2000)

'Dancer in the Dark', for all its fantastical musical excursions and all its tear-jerkiness nevertheless brings home the sobering reminder that justice does not always prevail.


Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000)

It comes down to this: it's pretty pathetic when you go to the $5 matinee and want $4 back at the end. And it's downright shameful when you want back 'all' $5, 'plus' popcorn money, 'plus' a few more bucks for the intentional infliction of emotional distress.


Diamond Men (2001)

As much as anything, what makes 'Diamond Men' well worth seeking out is Robert Forster's commanding performance as Eddie.


The Dish (2001)

The 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing is one of those grand Historic Moments that make folks feel proud and nostalgic.


Dogma (1999)

Kevin Smith's recent offering, Dogma, is truly the cinematic equivalent of Michael Stipe's over-burdened generational angst and swollen lyrics.


The Deep End (2001)

'The Deep End' might be accurately described as 'The Tilda Swinton Show', as her portrayal of the desperate, self-sacrificing mother Margaret Hall is the center of the film.


Don’t Say a Word (2001)

Michael Douglas's latest film, 'Don't Say a Word', is painfully and transparently about, well, him.


Disappearing Acts (2000)

This plot comes to revolve around the couple's troubles with money, it becomes an emblem and manifestation of Zora and Franklin's mutual and separate fears.
