    By creating characters from emotional wellsprings rather than concepts, Leigh thrills us with the possibilities that emerge when people are merely in the same room.

    Finally, there's a female action hero for the summer of 2000, and she's a . . . chicken. But a chicken to believe in.

    So funny and smart that holding it up against its predecessor is as pointless as comparing peak episodes of "Seinfeld."

    The look, the feel, the brood-y, brilliant cast: This is an oddly affecting movie, all right, a jellyroll of Bronte and Hemingway.

    A film so driven by pure style that a script barely seems necessary in its first half, Boogie Nights becomes bogged down in a predictable aftermath of drug deals, post-stardom decay, cocaine-fueled nuttiness, and self-loathing.

    Soderbergh appreciates the value of having fun with a so-so script, turning its cliches into fresh experiences and infusing energy into the margins of a predictable story.

    The lure of Sling Blade is both elemental and hauntingly familiar, and I would not be surprised if Thornton's breakthrough film is one day considered a classic in its own right.

    Rohmer's trademark dialogue...is as poetic in its plainness as ever.

    Overpraised, intellectually soft, narratively unfocused, and thematically ambivalent.

    The story, ultimately, is about the classic conflict between a desire to cherish and protect one's unique gifts from a brutal world and a more practical instinct to compromise beauty.

    The extent to which Black and Louiso help make this film terribly witty and caustic and worth every minute of its almost two-hour running time is immeasurable.

    In all, this film is a major disappointment with a few powerful highlights.

    Misshapen but magnificent vision of a soulful quest -- in the thick of misery and fear -- for the meaning of our lives.

    Firmly establishes Crowe as a standard-bearer of original thinking in the dispiritingly redundant state of American cinema. Don't miss this one.

    Snappy heist film that keeps changing the rules of a mystery so that one is never sure whose hands are at the controls.

    Whether or not Breaking the Waves succeeds as a profound work is something that's hard to say after one viewing, but it is certainly a wholly original piece of work.

    One can be forgiven for leaving the theater feeling a modicum of hope, and for that we owe Warren Beatty something.

    Levinson is at the top of his game with Liberty Heights, his instincts acutely cinematic, his purpose clear.

    The would-be emotional centerpiece of his three-hours-plus adventure flick is the most juvenile romantic tale of 1997.

    A smart marriage of modest technical ambition, sophisticated material, and a hang-loose presentation that belies the production's no-frills sacrifices.
