Personal Velocity: Three Portraits (2001)

Each section lingers just a little, as if the characters will have trajectories beyond the minutes you see them.


Adaptation

Careens between fiction and confession, repetition and revelation.

Bob Dylan: Bob Dylan Live 1975 - The Rolling Thunder Revue [2 CD + 1 DVD]

In the fall of 1975, the thirtysomething Dylan felt he had to challenge himself, as well as have some fun with his friends at the same time, and that feeling is palpable on this album. After 27 long years, we can finally properly hear the Master in his finest hour, and what a thrill it is.


Jeff Buckley: The Grace EPs

Treasure Planet (2002)

A space opera in touch with its feminine side.


Stealing the Fire (2002)

What is the relevance of individual agency in such vast systems as the Nazi war machine or the post-war global arms trade?"


Extreme Ops (2002)

At first, the girls-gone-wild moment is just about driving the supremely inept boys batty with desire.


Equilibrium (2002)

Hooray for kicking opponents' heads in, fancy wirework, and twirling black topcoats.


Empire (2002)

Of the many crazy clichés in Empire, Isabella Rossellini's big fat hair has to be the loony-tunesiest.


Daughter From Danang (2002)

Dolgin and Franco work hard not to exploit Heidi's naïvete for its narrative potential.
