    Wisely, Kornbluth strives to put a human face on the situation, focusing on several families who represent hard-working citizens who are barely making ends meet with their shrinking paychecks—let alone building up any savings.

    A somber, meditative, almost poetic film that delivers the horrors of bondage stripped down and head-on.

    Most of its pleasures come from the way it confounds expectations.

    When Michell is on his game, as he definitely is with Le Week-End, he unearths small, invaluable and even profound truths about the human condition that are often as inspiring as they are devastating.

    The bloody fingerprints of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers — among other violence-prone auteurs — are smeared all over his tidy and tautly-told Blue Ruin.

    If anyone is concerned about the way women are presented on the big screen these days, just look at how an evolved male like Hiccup respectfully treats his girlfriend Astrid (America Ferrera) and the portrayal of Blanchett’s Valka.

    Most novel is Rounders' message that the real sin isn't giving into vice but denying your God-given talents and not risking it all.

    There's one reason to see Tim Burton's flawed, somewhat declawed but often amusing do-over of Planet of the Apes. The apes. What else?

    His (Myers) affection for the era and its gaudy, bawdy movies inject this bit of fluff with giddy energy.

    A coming-of-age tale that truly floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.

    There's also a nice cheekiness to the material written by Robert Towne ("Chinatown"), and the usual cool high-tech toys are deployed.

    Dramatically moving and good-naturedly humorous, it transmits a sharp picture of humanity that inspires both awe and laughter.

    Where the highly likable actress (Zellweger) proves most valuable is in making us adore this insecure, clumsy, contradictory creature.

    As entertainment, such dark material can only stretch so far, and Series 7 comes awfully close to being as numbing as the genre it mocks. But its power can't be denied.

    Has the refined taste to crib from classics like "Double Indemnity."

    Feast upon a career-peak Willem Dafoe performance as a bat-eared fiend who is foul, funny, ferocious, forlorn and unforgettable.

    (Craven) and his Scream dream team have done a frightfully good job of killing off and wrapping up the popular horror series.

    This dark comedy comes off more giddy than gritty.

    Artful it's not. But it's awfully affable. [26 March 1999, Life, p.9E]

    The kind of quirky, character-driven comedy they don't make much anymore.

    Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, in an atypically high-minded and low-budget frame of mind, manages to breeze through most of the gridiron genre's obstacles with his admirable, crowd-pleasing Titans.

    Blast feels positively timely if not downright positive about the human race's ability to endure. Forget radiation. Fraser and folks actually survive three decades-plus of Perry Como music. [12 February 1999, Life, p.8E]

    With near-Swiss precision, director/producer Jay Roach and his writers make sure familiarity breeds hilarity.
