  1. It would be tempting to say that fractured time sequences in movies have become a cliché, except that Wicker Park makes your brain spin in surprising and pleasurable ways.

    This is a rich,complicated story that is told masterfully. The style of narrative is like Memento, told in non-chronlogical order. Yes, this movie makes you think. You have to use your brain to figure out what is going on. I am so sick of people bashing films that require a conscious effort to understand. Overall, a wonderful film with excellent direction and good acting, but more importantly a fantastic script. Full Review »

    An interesting romance that strives for the quote "what's meant to be will always find its way." It seemed like Wicker Park tried to attract both audiences of the Romance genre: the innocent; for the happy, mushy ending with rated-PG dialogue; and the naughty; by the misleading cover.

    Indirect structure must be endured until the pieces start to fall into place. Fluctuates between sublime and shallow personality traits without implying there is any distinction between the two. But overall a tasteful and admittedly powerful situation romance. Full Review »
