The Shield

As played by new Emmy winner Michael Chiklis, Vic Mackey is casually racist and homicidal, by turns charismatic and appalling.

Impostor (2001)

Based on a 1953 Philip K. Dick story, the film rehearses the usual Dickish concerns, namely, a male protagonist's loss of identity, confidence, and context in a dystopic SF future.

Kate & Leopold (2001)

Never mind that Leopold is clueless when it comes to actual labor or the concept of class; as long as he's upper, he has no need to know anything more.


Ali (2001)

Ali embodies a kind of car-wreck charisma -- arrogant and self-conscious, beautiful and fierce, even on twenty-year-old tape, he can take your breath away. This ability to mesmerize makes Ali who he is, or more accurately, who everyone wants him to be. He's a cipher and a screen onto which viewers might project themselves.

The Majestic (2001)

PULL.


Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2001)

Full-length computer-animated features have, thus far, fallen into the realm of children's fantasy.


Joe Somebody (2001)

It gets points for knowing what it is, a formulaic PG picture without pretensions to grandeur (and for not being 'The Majestic').


How High (2001)

Meth is, as always, an exceedingly charismatic presence, and his partner an able comic foil.

Little Otik (2000)

Jan Svankmajer taps into the appeal of the maternal horror story.


The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

What is potentially most urgent about 'The Fellowship of the Ring' is how it reflects the tenor of our time.

Vanilla Sky (2001)

Moreover, the film asserts, if you're not careful in your dealings with people, you'll end up with no self and no life, in that big empty Times Square in your head.
