Julien Donkey-Boy (1999)

A girlish figure skater glides across the ice, accompanied by a sorrowful Puccini aria. A young man (this is Julien, played by Ewan Bremner, best known in the United States as Trainspotting's hapless Spud) runs through snowy woods, his breath coming in gasps.


Josie and the Pussycats (2001)

Joe Dirt (2001)

Are 'rednecks' funny? America seems to think so.


Jurassic Park III (2001)

Digital dinosaurs in digital stereo.


Jesus’ Son (2000)

The elegance of Maclean's film, however, lies i


Judy Berlin (2000)

In the movies, suburbia is usually plastic and colorful, familiar and pockmarked by Pier Ones, Burger Kings, and Walmarts, as well as American Beauty roses.
