    Blessed are the Pythons for making holy wit of the Holy Writ.

    A boisterous and improbably entertaining action comedy.

    Shrek 2 is a dream, a sequel as exhilarating and riotously funny as 2001's top-grossing original.

    If the heart of the film is Hartford, who late in his struggle with cancer conveys the luminous colors of a man at his twilight, its soul is Welch.

    During its two hours-plus running time, Field's movie veers from dark comedy to melodrama, not always gracefully. But tonal inconsistencies don't blunt the keenness of its satire, so sharp that I walked out with emotional razor burn.

    Robert Evans has been variously described as the Hugh Hefner of Hollywood, a Tinseltown Gatsby, the Lancelot of the backlot.

    This small story that tells the much bigger story of the New Economy's bubble and burst is less a documentary than it is breaking news.

    I'm not sure that the endearing charms of the assorted fogeys and whelps add up to a movie. But I always enjoy how Altman weaves the warp of professional life with the weft of the personal.

    A pleasant taste of Roman life.

    Sobering and wildly entertaining.

    It is a challenging film, if not always a narratively cohesive one.

    Hugely entertaining catalog of MPAA follies.

    Shelly left her daughter - and her audience - a wonderful gift, this movie about the transforming effects of motherhood. Waitress shows how, in giving birth, a woman gives birth to herself - as artist and mother.

    It is not a polemic but a plea.

    The result is a film that deeply engages us on multiple levels. Not only do we wonder what Maisie knows and how she knows it, we want to get this seedling to a place where she won't have to be transplanted every day.

    While at times the improvisational dialogue sounds like audio filler, the three leads are poignant and perceptive.

    In the end, Bellocchio suggests in this spiritual thriller that perhaps faith is the dream from which we do not awaken.

    The mosaic of cases and caseworkers is like a season of "The Wire" distilled into two hours.

    Davis does the most thorough job of capturing Basquiat, man, artist, and life force.

    Mostly this elegant little film is a case study in the inconsistency of thoughts and feelings. Here, moralists break commandments, intellectuals act emotionally, and cynics have moments of idealism.

    Great as Whitaker is in this juicy slab of Oscar bait, Macdonald's movie doesn't have much to offer beyond a pair of stunning performances, propulsive editing, fantastic scenery and the heartbeat rhythms of African music.

    In her clear and compelling film, Sanders lets the innocents do the talking.

    Beautifully photographed by Crystel Fournier, Sciamma's film has a floaty weightlessness (as opposed to the heavyosity of "Boys Don't Cry") that neither judges nor pathologizes Laure.

    In her byplay with Clooney, Roberts only occasionally strikes a spark. Clooney, on the other hand, generates heat.

    Laced with magic-realist bittersweetness.

    He (Lee) combines the daredeviltry of Buster Keaton with the devil-may-care of Errol Flynn.

    Corinne's journey begins with an act of blind faith. The movie ends, but you have a palpable sense that the journey does not.

    The film gracefully telescopes a lot of information in its brief running time.

    Washington blows you away. To say he gives the performance of his career is an understatement.
