Wildflowers (1999)

Occasionally, a movie comes along that attempts to remember the '60s as a time like all others, with competing ideologies, and both good and bad effects.


Waking the Dead (2000)

Though some viewers might not compare producer-director Keith Gordon to John Huston as adaptors of literature to film, Gordon makes films which are regularly praised for their 'faithful' transfer of literary texts.


The World Is Not Enough (1999)

I can't help it; whenever I hear that opening theme music to a James Bond film, I get a tingle. I can't help but to hope for the best. This time out, my hopes were raised by a great opening sequence to The World Is Not Enough, which involves a thrilling highspeed boat chase. What's more, TWINE gives us the premise for a most excellent villain.


The Whole Nine Yards (2000)


Whipped (2000)

While Whipped's general organization -- three guys competing for one woman, all knowing about one another, all showing up at her apartment at the same time -- is pretty much directly ripped off from Spike Lee's groundbreaking She's Gotta Have It, here the focus is not on the she, but the three he's.


Wet Hot American Summer (2001)

As both a parody and a 'straight' summer camp comedy, 'Wet Hot American Summer' has little to offer even the most die-hard crude comedy fans.


Vertical Limit (2000)

Forces of nature make for excellent movie villains. Twisters, storms at sea, icebergs, earthquakes, wild rivers full of snakes, volcanoes -- they're all big, bad, easily recognizable bullies, mainly because, by definition, they never pick on anyone their own size.


Va Savoir (Who Knows?) (2001)

PULL.


The Vanishing (Spoorloos) (1988/2001) - PopMatters Film Review )

The most skillful purveyors of horror and suspense narratives recognize one incontrovertible fact: we fear the banal.
