Reviews > Film

Thursday, June 19 2003

Alex & Emma (2003)

It is Alex's fantasy into which the film and Emma's seeming interests devolve.


Monday, June 9 2003

Jubilee (1978)

It's cagier than this simplistic 'resist the system' message suggests.

Wrong Turn (2003)

You keep expecting the monster to pop up and git her, and by gum, it does.


2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

Tyrese brings appropriate rage, outstanding musculature, and welcome comedy to the proceedings.


L’Auberge Espagnole (2002)

Celebrates rather than laments the loss of fixed identities.


Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns) (2003)

Flansburgh and Linnell's chemistry gives the impression that almost anyone could capture them at their best.


Garmento (2003)

Is anyone really shocked to find out that Calvin Klein-level designers are fey, waffling, deluded egomaniacs that willingly surround themselves with babysitting sycophants?"


Blue Car (2003)

High schooler Meg (Agnes Bruckner) has good reasons to be angry.


Monday, June 2 2003

Tess of the D’Urbervilles (1998)

Call it destiny or bad luck: things don't work out for Tess.


Thursday, May 29 2003

The Sea (Hafið) (2002)

Shooting for King Lear, Kormákur instead gives us much ado about nothing.


Manic (2001)

Lyle confronts a pack of variously troubled kids, joined together in relentless and surly angst.


The Italian Job (2003)

As soon as John utters the words 'last job' to his darling girl, his fate (like the film's) is sealed.


Finding Nemo (2003)

What I find more intriguing is the timeliness of Marlin's dilemma, raising his child in an ever more dangerous and unpredictable world.


Thursday, May 22 2003

Ten (2002)

Abbas Kiarostami has made a career of demolishing our complacency as viewers, blurring the divides between fiction and documentary, spectator and screen.


Spellbound (2002)

In depicting their struggle for the American Dream, Spellbound can be as wide-eyed and innocent as its young subjects.


MC5 * A True Testimonial (2002) - PopMatters Film Review)

The MC5 were an extremely proficient musical unit that genuinely lived their lives according to the credo, 'Kick out the jams.'"


The In-Laws (2003)

Robin Tunney's cool aversion to stereotype is easily The In-Laws' most valuable asset.


Bruce Almighty (2003)

Jim Carrey needs a vacation from himself.


Thursday, May 15 2003

People I Know (2003)

It's a tribute to Pacino's skill as an actor that, although we pity Eli, we also understand his fatigue.


Fellini: I’m a Born Liar (2003)

The right way to make a documentary on Fellini is to fantasize a little about the persona, rather than to seek the 'truth' of the man.
