The Crew (2000)

M00o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Chocolat (2000)

M10o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


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)

M40o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


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)

M60o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


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)

M100o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Croupier (1997/2000)

M110o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


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)

M130o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


The Contender (2000)

M140o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Coyote Ugly (2000)

The girls are less reduced to t&a than they are passionately independent, passably intelligent, and definitely not taking any shit from their over-stimulated male bar patrons, whom one 'coyote' describes as having 'little toddlers in their pants.'"


The Cup (2000)

M160o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


The Big Tease (2000)

M180o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Battlefield Earth (2000)

As one of four producers for the film, Travolta helped to secure the $100 million independent financing, most of which seems to have gone into the Psychlos' elaborate dreadlocked wigs and the enormous platform boots that make the big meanies look eight feet tall and terribly slow on their feet.
