The Virgin Suicides (1999)

And yet, for its many pleasures, I find myself conflicted in thinking about The Virgin Suicides.


The Virgin Suicides (1999)

It's hardly a new idea, to read into adolescent girls' suicide something poetic, passionate, and deeply meaningful. Neither is it a secret that countless girls have admired Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman, seeing in their wounded and inviolate art reflections of themselves, their own pain and enchantment.


The Vertical Ray of the Sun (2001)

'The Vertical Ray of the Sun' [begins with] the quiet wonder of a morning that is not rushed, allowed to unfold itself moment by gentle moment.


The Visit (2001)

Unlike currently popular representations of prison -- say, your average Sly-Stallone-type-in-prison movie or Tom Fontana's justly celebrated HBO series, 'Oz', made dazzling with acrobatic camerawork and fast-cut editing -- 'The Visit' is unflashy, almost to a fault.


Unbreakable (2000)

'Unbreakable' might be best described as 'Die Hard' for art-house audiences.


Under Suspicion (2000)

There's not much in this film that's subtle, but it does actually have something thoughtful to say about the ways that we perceive and assume truth, or the ways we might be convinced of some untruth because of our own anxieties. What you see can be -- and usually is -- deceiving.


Urban Legends: Final Cut (2000)

Amy's just come up with her final project concept: a serial killer whose murders are based on urban legends. (Um, didn't someone already make this movie?)"


Urbania (2000)

'Urbania' is all about stories, how they're told and how they are received, who shares and who withholds, or what anyone might mean by telling a story.
