    While it's crucial to preserve and make available every bit of available footage of such an earth-shattering event, it must be said that Rosenbaum's film manages to become slack and uninvolving after a while.

    Les Destinées has a leisurely, contemplative pace without ever growing boring. Still, at the end, we are left somehow empty. For all the time we spend with these people, we never really get inside of them.

    It's hard to know just how much to trust Titanic Town.

    Two minor drawbacks: Onscreen IDs of speakers are sometimes omitted. And Kissinger's crimes seem almost paltry in comparison to current American policies.

    Sad to say, the story is simply too slight to sustain the film.

    In the end, the performances and the basic strength of the premise make Shadow of the Vampire a relatively diverting ninety minutes. But there is the inescapable feeling that it is a shadow of the great film it might have been.

    Despite the few good performances, this Hamlet is not a keeper.

    Worth watching.

    The efficiency of his (Donaldson) direction renders the movie somewhat characterless, like a top-rank made-for-TV production.

    Hu has crafted a charming and modest movie.

    It's nothing more than a very long movie about someone, literally and metaphorically, having to get back up on a horse.

    Belongs somewhere in the low middle of Altman's output -- not up to "Cookie's Fortune," but way better than, say, "Beyond Therapy," which remains his worst film by some margin.

    With no aspects of the personalities represented outside of their music, Grateful Dawg ends up feeling dry and incomplete; its two subjects are stripped of all other characteristics and come across as not very interesting.

    In the end, it's all just too damned much. It's more exhausting than edifying.

    The problem with Wendigo, for all its effective moments, isn't really one of resources. At its heart, the story seems confused, as though the director has given it one too many twists.

    Star Jeremy Renner seems shorter than Dahmer, but is otherwise a look-alike and gives a convincingly intense and weird performance. Bruce Davison (as Papa Dahmer) and the rest of the cast also do nice work.

    It just doesn¹t get very good until halfway through, in large part because the usually excellent Walston is miscast.

    Handily in a league with its predecessor...as good a follow-up as one can imagine, given the built-in difficulties of sequels.

    In terms of cleverly hidden exposition, this ain't "The Sixth Sense."

    Fails dramatically as well as ideologically.

    The texture is reminiscent of last year's "Suzhou River," but the basic material isn't as rich.

    Lee's pace is slow enough to try viewers' patience.

    The film looks great, but Wargnier is so heavy-handed in his portrayal of postwar Russia that it casts suspicions on the film's reliability as history.

    Cube is essentially a glossy, beautifully designed 90-minute Twilight Zone episode.

    Filled with sharp observations and interesting, often subtle, bits of visual trickery, much of it evoking the technique of Douglas Sirk's American domestic melodramas. Still, the very simple story seems too simple and the working out of the plot almost arbitrary.

    Unfocused. We feel cut adrift amid the various plot threads. This is exacerbated by some murky exposition. Characters, events, and the passage of time are not always clearly established.

    Abandon all hopes of common sense, and enter the theater with high expectations for visceral entertainment. You won't be disappointed.

    The muddiness of the basic concept and the thinness of its execution eventually defeat even Witherspoon's talents.

    It's always risky to characterize a new film as "unique," but Tuvalu, the debut feature from German director Veit Helmer, has as good a shot as any at claiming that label.
