'Jewtopia': Stereotypes With Affection

Christian makes it his mission to seek out another Jewish girlfriend, since, as he states more than once, "I never want to make another decision" for the rest of his life.

Unknown (2006)

One or two resist their designations: Bound Man doesn't want to be bound, Broken Nose resents that mishap.

Reviews

Prison Break

Much as the Scofields despise the abject corruption that got them into this fix, they plainly feel less affinity for shadows than full-on righteousness. They believe they can get even.

Prison Break - Season One

Fox's preposterous prison serial cranks the lunacy and thrills up to 11 in its oversized and rollicking inaugural season.

The Brothers Grimm (2005)

'This is why I love DVDs,' says Terry Gilliam. 'I can completely destroy the illusion of my film.'"

Prison Break

The good and bad guys in Prison Break might cry, fight, screw, and bleed, but they still look like cardboard to me.

The Brothers Grimm (2005)

Will worries out loud, 'Nothing makes sense here, it's like being inside Jake's head.'"

Constantine (2005)

Doubting his mission and his faith even as he's consumed by them, Constantine is an achingly topical comic book/movie hero.

Birth (2004)

Catching her breath as if she's been hit, Mrs. Conte's (Cara Seymour) visceral reaction, amid the film's overwhelmingly somber, ethereal weirdness, is finally believable.

Fargo (1996)

This is the film's genius, its simultaneous emulation and excavation of true crime's obsession with dull or spectacular minutiae, coupled with a refusal to make such details cohere into master plans and meanings.

Spun (2002)

Boasting that it includes more than 5,000 edits, Jonas Åkerlund's feature debut offers glimpses -- very fast -- into life on speed.

Minority Report (2002)

Based on a story published by Philip K. Dick in 1956, 'Minority Report' is science-fiction of the sort that Dick preferred to write -- set in the future, but all wrapped up in concerns that are immediately relevant to the present moment (that the same concerns were relevant back in 1956 is not a little unnerving, as will become clear).

Windtalkers (2002)

Though it might be argued that Nicolas Cage roaring and contorting in slow motion makes for good action cinema, it's hardly the basis for a thoughtful interrogation of how war works, how it shatters (or otherwise forever changes) participants, and reinforces systemic racism.
