The Corruptor (1999)

'You don't change Chinatown. Chinatown changes you.' So warns Detective Nick Chen (Chow Yun Fat), upon meeting his squeaky clean newbie partner, Danny Wallace (Mark Wahlberg) in The Corruptor. And so persists the myth of Chinatown. Alluring, strange, and always inscrutable, in the movies it remains an uncrackable bastion of Otherness.


Chicken Run (2000)

Crazy in Alabama (1999)

Crazy in Alabama concerns two concurrent stories, which take place in small town Alabama in the mid '60s. One centers on the inhumanity and injustice of segregation, while the other tells of a woman following her dream, even though it means killing her husband and deserting her children to do so.


Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (2001)

What else could 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin' be, other than the frivolous and utterly forgettable movie that it is?"


Chicken Run (2000)

Chuck & Buck (2000)

Like Arteta's intelligent and lively first feature, Star Maps, Chuck and Buck takes emotional risks and poses questions - about children and adults, responsibility and sexuality -- that other films will not.


The Center of the World (2001)

These lost souls meet when he visits the conspicuously named Pandora's Box, the club where she's employed, and he's so taken by her (lap dance) that he asks her to come to Vegas with him for three days: no strings and lots of money.


Chutney Popcorn (1999)

Chop Suey (2000)

For Weber, Sir Wilfred Thesiger's craggy face holds as much wonder and wisdom as Peter Johnson's taut torso.


Cecil B. DeMented (2000)

Committed (2000)

Jo's 'knack for faith' isn't always predicated on good business sense, but hey, she wears great club-ideal outfits (sheer blouses, pretty accessories, and tight jeans), and her clients love her.


La Ciénaga (2001)

Within the first moments of her debut feature, 'La Ciénaga', writer/director Lucrecia Martel demonstrates a piercing sensibility and a sharp eye.


crazy/beautiful (2001)

From the start of John Stockwell's 'crazy/beautiful', Nicole is set up to be both typical and freaky, the kind of adolescent girl you've seen in a million other high school and/or 'crazy white girl' movies.


Catfish in Black Bean Sauce (2000)

M160o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Croupier (1997/2000)

The Claim (2000)

Here the primary players are caught between forging their futures (individual and communal) and regretting their pasts, conjuring up a civilization in an unforgivably brutal environment.


Les Amants Criminels (Criminal Lovers) (2000)
