Juwanna Mann (2002)

It's no longer critiquing mainstream expectations, but instead, absorbing and reflecting stereotypes, drained of context.

Minority Report (2002)

Based on a story published by Philip K. Dick in 1956, 'Minority Report' is science-fiction of the sort that Dick preferred to write -- set in the future, but all wrapped up in concerns that are immediately relevant to the present moment (that the same concerns were relevant back in 1956 is not a little unnerving, as will become clear).


Lilo & Stitch (2002)

Lovably unconventional, Lilo & Stitch have some trouble fitting in with their peer groups -- regular kids in Lilo's case, multi-limbed aliens in Stitch's.


Juwanna Mann (2002)

Like its men-in-drag predecessors, Juwanna Mann doesn't critique gender stereotypes, so much as it uses them to espouse a morality lesson.


The Fast Runner (Atanarjuat) (2002)

Exotic and universal, The Fast Runner is as engrossing as any thriller, as majestic as any epic.
