    His most thoroughly surreal work since Eraserhead, this two-hour-plus fever dream is more of one piece than Fire Walk with Me and less desperate and jokey than Wild at Heart.

    What about Ronny Yu's 1992 masterpiece "The Bride With White Hair," of which Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a decent facsimile?

    Its tone has elements of Jim Jarmusch and the Coen brothers but without Jarmusch's self-conscious artiness or the Coens' hip snottiness.

    Eastwood provides more than an hour of easygoing fun, followed by 45 minutes of action and suspense.

    Zhang deftly and quickly draws a half-dozen supporting characters, and his pacing never flags.

    Both Fellini and Woody Allen have remarked that casting is 90 percent of directing--and Citizen Ruth bears witness to that notion. While this is primarily Dern's show, the casting is perfect all around.

    At first glance, Schizopolis may seem like no more than a grab-bag of tricks and gimmicks, but repeat viewings reveal a more coherent pattern.

    The film's demands may be too perplexing.

    O'Connor as Fanny is irresistibly appealing.

    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's a strange, entertaining little film that derives its weird tension from a blend of comic and serious tones.

    It's unlikely that anyone will be bored. But it's just as unlikely that anyone will be swept off his feet either.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    For all of the heroine's shockingly "modern" lifestyle choices, the thrust of the film is remarkably old-fashioned. It embraces the notion that you can have only a single great love in a lifetime...and that's if you're lucky.

    If you don't view it too analytically, Men of Honor provides almost more uplift than a body can handle.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's a fast, entertaining ride.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's funny and exciting on enough levels that adults are likely to enjoy it just as much as the rug rats.
    • 53 Metascore

    A political film in the form of a thriller, rather than a garden-variety potboiler gleefully helping itself to stock political tropes from the genre's grab bag.
    • 31 Metascore

    Manages the seemingly impossible task of being very funny indeed and being as dark as anything Wong has ever made. This is an almost painfully bleak comedy that makes you squirm in the manner of “The Out-of-Towners.”
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Allen produces a lovable, relaxed--although not uproarious--comedy.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Makes good use of its actors.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Rea hits just the right balance of sympathy and self-interest.
    • 72 Metascore

    It's during the shift to seriousness that The Ice Storm makes its missteps. The intrusion of tragedy, while altogether believable, still seems like a device, a calculated tug at the heart strings. It is, in short, a once-effective ploy that now feels like a cliche. A near-miss might have been more effective.

    Fuqua has done an admirable job staging the action scenes, but the script is little more than a thin framework to justify those scenes.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    What Malick has fashioned here is less a conventional narrative than an impressionistic mosaic of our common, yet varied experience of life and death, as focused and clarified through the relentless lens of war.

    Helgeland makes a solid debut as director here, finding a new angle through which to view the Parker character, and doing so without exhausting the possibilities.

    While Mononoke is often gorgeous to look at and has a far more sophisticated story than most Japanese animated features, it still feels overlong and dramatically unengaging.
    • 62 Metascore

    A lovely little comedy that--like its predecessor--will, one hopes, buck the odds and find its audience.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    In short, the film is emotional, perhaps even sentimental, but it strenuously avoids the sort of blatant manipulation that marks cheap sentimentality.

    Bigger, Longer & Uncut delivers: It's never less than funny, and at its best, it's truly hysterical.
    • 58 Metascore

    As satisfying as much of the film is, there are a few missteps, large and small, that may require indulgence on the part of viewers.

    Its greatest flaw is the casting of Miller ("Trainspotting," "Hackers"), who continues to have virtually no screen presence...For all that, Plunkett & Macleane is fun.
