    Rarely have a novelist and filmmaker been better matched.

    • 80 Gene Seymour
    A laid-back excursion through the "Star Trek" phenomenon that boldly goes where millions and millions of fans have gone--in and out of costume.

    The Corruptor manages to make a meat-and-potatoes action flick into a cunning little meditation on personal loyalty and situational morality. [12 Mar 1999]

    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Gene Seymour
    One of the least sensationalistic--and therefore, more unsettlingly plausible--visions of prison life ever transfigured into big-screen drama.

    Control keeps you riveted in ways that "24 Hour Party People" doesn't, primarily because of the investment of craft and conviction by all concerned.

    • 70 Gene Seymour

    As with any Ozon film, Time to Leave comes across with unexpected moments of illuminated stillness.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Gene Seymour
    Script resounds throughout with astringent dialogue and stark authenticity.

    Though Aliens of the Deep flirts with Zissou-Murray's divine madness, Cameron's vision seems somehow cozier. No wonder he's not yet ready for dry dock.

    What you have here, essentially, is a classic "Honeymooners" episode juiced with tropes from the most recent "Rocky" movie.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Gene Seymour
    Has the right mix of sugar and spice for a satisfying rush.
    • 64 Metascore

    What emerges from Arlyck's musings is a penetrating cinematic essay on how generations in the last century struggled to take hold of history and reconfigure the shape of daily life.
