The Watcher (2000)

Wonder Boys (2000)

Curtis Hanson's Wonder Boys is very much concerned with the boys its title declares (or, rather, with a certain sort of boyish behavior). More to the point, it actually seems to wonder, as we do and as the characters do, what is to be done with them.

Waking Life (2001)

Throughout Waking Life, the pictures rarely, if ever, stop moving, flowing, breathing -- attention has been paid to the animated environments, not just the characters in the foreground.


Woman on Top (2000)

Penelope Cruz is as radiant a rising star as you're likely to see in this lifetime, sensuous and dewy-new-seeming.


The Whole Nine Yards (2000)

Where the Money Is (2000)

What Women Want (2000)

What’s Cooking? (2000)

With a Friend Like Harry (Harry, un ami qui vous veut du bien) (2001)

There are plenty of anxieties to go around here, most of them concerning what it means to be -- or at least behave like -- a man.


Wendigo (2002)

Considers the possible effects of transposing a 'natural' justice system onto human conflict.


What Lies Beneath (2000)

The Wood (1999)

M120o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Wild Strawberries (1957/2002)

One of Ingmar Bergman's best films and certainly one of the best ever made on the subject of aging.


Wildflowers (1999)

Occasionally, a movie comes along that attempts to remember the '60s as a time like all others, with competing ideologies, and both good and bad effects.


Waking the Dead (2000)

Though some viewers might not compare producer-director Keith Gordon to John Huston as adaptors of literature to film, Gordon makes films which are regularly praised for their 'faithful' transfer of literary texts.


Waking Life (2001)

The World Is Not Enough (1999)

I can't help it; whenever I hear that opening theme music to a James Bond film, I get a tingle. I can't help but to hope for the best. This time out, my hopes were raised by a great opening sequence to The World Is Not Enough, which involves a thrilling highspeed boat chase. What's more, TWINE gives us the premise for a most excellent villain.


The Whole Nine Yards (2000)

M180o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Whipped (2000)

While Whipped's general organization -- three guys competing for one woman, all knowing about one another, all showing up at her apartment at the same time -- is pretty much directly ripped off from Spike Lee's groundbreaking She's Gotta Have It, here the focus is not on the she, but the three he's.
