    Despite its interesting, grim tone and undeniably striking visuals from director Burton and production designer Furst, the film fails to synthesize its strengths into a compelling whole.
  1. Surprisingly heartfelt tale.

    Offers a rare glimpse into the hermetic world of the Satmars.

    Eason balances the clichés of a fairly standard story with convincing realism and a powerful momentum that never flags.

    Brimming with fun and a few great ideas, it's little more than a foggy memory the minute it's over.
  2. This DIY oddity is both quirkily funny and strangely poignant, and does justice to the same themes that underlie the far more lavishly produced "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence."
  3. Actress-turned-writer/director Asia Argento's angry, outspoken, semi-autobiographical rant of a film is strident and occasionally juvenile, but it packs an undeniable wallop.

    Underlying the slapstick, however, is an extravagant parody of American culture--bad taste, bad manners, the gushing sentimentality of Lloyd's daydreams, or the classic westward road trip, complete with diner scenes and archetypal rednecks.

    While the film may drop a few of the novel's more disturbing moments, it still travels some emotionally rocky territory, and each of those actresses -- particularly Alison Lohman, who carries most of the movie on her young shoulders -- turns in a first-rate performance.

    John Carlos Frey's tough social drama has a slightly sensationalistic edge, but the disturbing fact is that all too much of his worthy film hews closely to the real-life experiences of undocumented immigrant workers.

    It's a complex new approach toward putting memory to tape, and the result can be at times too theoretical, too personal and too opaque, but it's a consistently challenging work that's often sharply poignant.
  4. Would be as tedious as a home movie if the couple, Edward DeBonis and Vincent Maniscalco, weren't gay men and their nuptials not colored by the clash between their personal faith and their rejection by the mainstream church.
  5. Only Lopez, the film's ostensible star, seems to be struggling; she's a lovely dancer, but the only reason Lopez's expressionless performance isn't this sweet picture's downfall is that the script makes so few demands on her.

    It's hard to believe that this oddly mesmerizing film, set in large part in the vast subway system that snakes its way through Manhattan and its outer boroughs, wasn't made by a native New Yorker.

    Aronofsky has given us a well-acted, gorgeously overwrought and luridly entertaining exploitation flick -- a midnight movie for future generations.

    (Rohmer's) simple script and methods capture a sense of place and character that eludes far more conspicuously stylish directors.

    While Brosnan, an Irishman by birth, lays it on bit thick, his performance is surprisingly effective.

    An uncommonly smart and bittersweet romantic comedy.
  6. The cast, a mix of beauty-contest winners, models, veteran actors and newcomers, is as diverse as the characters they play and work together surprisingly smoothly.
  7. Rather than rage, Peosay's film radiates sadness over a singular way of life in danger of imminent obliteration.
  8. The film is never dull -- no mean feat, given that it spends two hours telling a story whose end is widely known -- and features performances that range from coarsely effective to phenomenal.
  9. The film is wickedly funny and a first-rate showcase for Ferrell.
  10. Though ultimately the film is all smoke and mirrors, the sensibility it reflects is rich and exciting.
  11. This loving parody is steeped in comic book trivia and lore: The more you know, the more heartfelt your response to the film is likely to be.

    A triumph of slick direction and lowbrow thrills, marred but not spoiled by a sour aftertaste.
  12. It unfolds in the angst-haunted shadow of the 9'11 terror attacks and teeters on a thin edge of sheer panic.
