Panic (2000)


Pollock (2000)

Where the story of Pollock's life gets, at least to me, most interesting, and where the film 'Pollock' becomes most engaging, is in the connected story of the artist's wife, Lee Krasner.


Le Placard (The Closet) (2000)

What happens when you find yourself watching an ostensibly 'gay movie' in which only one gay character appears, and in a secondary role?"


Price of Glory (2000)

Price of Glory opens with a boxing match in Phoenix, Arizona, 1977. While the mostly Mexican/Latino ringside crowd yells and hoots, a young man takes a terrible beating. His trainer urges him on, his face is bruised and panicked, and the scene lurches into that boxing film cliche, the eight-frames-per-second knock-out punch: his jaw contorts, his blood flies, and he hits the floor.


Paragraph 175 (2000)

There is no doubt that future generations will benefit from Epstein and Friedman's efforts to preserve on film, in one survivor's words, 'uncomfortable memories' that history has almost completely erased.


Planet of the Apes (2001)

...reminds us that we may not be the end product of some divine plan, or necessarily very important to the universe.


The Princess and the Warrior (2001)

Where 'Run, Lola, Run' was fast and urgent, 'The Princess and the Warrior' is deliberate, almost meditative. Still, the two movies share common, provocative ideas about fate and passion, the nature of time and the rhythms of life.


The Proposition (2005)

Nick Cave's The Proposition blends equal parts Walkabout and Sergio Leone's grim atmospherics to illustrate the brutality of imperialism.
