  1. A rare example of a literary film that preserves the best of its source while creatively filling up on it.

    You leave Felicia's Journey appreciating it. A week later, you're astounded by it.

    Newcomer Cassidy is excellent, and Hoskins gives a flawless performance.
  4. Deep as a Canadian lake: Below the placid surface, menacing creatures swim around unseen.
  5. As far from crowd-pleasing as you're going to get these days.
  6. In this instance Egoyan's hereafter is a pale imitation of his yesterday.
