  1. A lively, compulsively watchable but ultimately sobering film about the men who make their living off prostitution.
    • Baltimore Sun
  2. Brain-softener.
    • Baltimore Sun
  3. The martial arts wizard shows a nice feel for the Butch and Sundance thing.
  4. Provides an arresting journey through the Japanese countryside and culture.
  5. Greenaway's film is about making people's jaws drop.
    • Baltimore Sun
  6. Offers jaw-dropping visuals, but its troubling images of violence may cause this revolutionary effort to miss the evolutionary boat.
    • Baltimore Sun
  7. Can be recommended even if just for the presence of Elaine May, who turns in her most charmingly ditzy performance since "A New Leaf."
  8. The animals in Road Trip are pretty hilarious; as a five-minute short on cable TV's "Animal Planet," this film would be a stitch.
  9. A wonderfully understated work offering insights to a world where no emotion is simple.
  10. All that artistry is surrounded by a hackish, paint-by-numbers storyline that makes the time between dance numbers seem endless.
    • Baltimore Sun
  11. An underlit, overlong, underwritten and overloud albatross of a movie.
    • Baltimore Sun
  12. Almereyda has done a splendid job of rendering Hamlet as expressive visually as it is verbally.
    • Baltimore Sun
  13. Genteel but ultimately unnecessary entertainment.
  14. Here's hoping your own dreams of Africa are more interesting -- and better acted -- than this movie.
    • Baltimore Sun
  15. Well, it's better than "The Phantom Menace."
    • Baltimore Sun
  16. There's plenty to like about Adrenaline Drive, including the appealing, sympathetic performances of its two young stars and the tongue-in-cheek humor that pervades the film.
    • Baltimore Sun
  17. Forgive me for being underwhelmed.
    • Baltimore Sun
  18. An enjoyably complex sci-fi suspense thriller.
    • Baltimore Sun
  19. Von Trier has assembled a fearless troupe of gifted actors - especially Jorgensen - to explore the outer reaches of human cruelty and vulnerability.
    • Baltimore Sun
  20. A tired piece of hackery, made only slightly less distasteful by a couple of inspired moments from supporting player Alan Cumming.
    • Baltimore Sun
  21. Once you get the hang of Figgis' own brand of coercion -- one based on an intricate sound design and musical score -- you find yourself happily going along for the ride.
  22. A marvelously subversive, slyly manipulative effort.
  23. The strong young cast keeps the film from being a total waste.
    • Baltimore Sun
  24. Instead of a sweeping epic, this adaptation of a novel by Elizabeth Bowen is much quieter, a work perhaps too understated and stereotypical for its own good.
  25. Sets up a mood of tensile suspense from the beginning and never lets it go.
  26. It gets under your skin and into your head, and you don't want it to leave.
  27. The conventional and the cliche are slam-dunked in favor of a fresh, authentic take on passion, ambition and coming of age.
  28. Depends on breezy attitude and effortless delivery for its success.
  29. A withering condemnation of a culture where greed is a virtue, a culture that you don't have to feel guilty for laughing at.
    • Baltimore Sun
  30. Bullock's character goes through some changes, but she never turns into some unrecognizably serious actress.
    • Baltimore Sun
