  1. 360 2012 La Ronde 2011-style is simply a game and its makers expert gamesmen. The film is never less than intriguing. But the artifice shows all too clearly. full review
  2. Bangkok Revenge 2012 full review
  3. Twixt 2012 Easily [Coppola's] silliest work ever. full review
  4. Breakaway 2011 full review
  5. Gun Hill Road 2011 A tired though vigorously acted story about a father confronted with a son who wants to be a girl. full review
  6. The Ledge 2011 An artificial drama enlivened by solid acting but dragged down by contrived melodrama over a fundamentalist nut. full review
  7. Wrecked 2011 The 91-minute film builds tension steadily and despite the single set -- if you can think of the wilderness as a single set -- it is visually inventive so the man's ordeal never grows tedious. full review
  8. Black Death 2010 Religion and morality are both found wanting in this medieval horror-drama devoid of good guys. full review
  9. Christopher And His Kind 2010 full review
  10. Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer 2010 An utterly fascinating look at many things you didn't know about the Eliot Spitzer scandal. full review
  11. The Company Men 2010 American movies rarely catch the American male so nakedly powerless and shattered. full review
  12. Greenberg 2010 Noah Baumbach again investigates psychologically screwed-up people, although this time with much less comedic impact.
  13. Inhale 2010 The final act hits like a gut-punch. full review
  14. Kaboom 2010 All that's truly strange here though is that Araki gets so few jolts or laughs from this hodge-podge of genres. full review
  15. Last Night 2010 The real question, is who cares? full review
  16. Today's Special 2010 The film, like a great meal, leaves you wanting more. full review
  17. Vanishing On 7th Street 2010 All the trappings of a horror film without any real horror or jolts. full review
  18. An American Affair 2009 Gretchen Mol, lounging semi-nude as she smokes near an open Georgetown window, would spark any young man's curiosity and recklessness. But the assassination story line is absurd.
  19. Five Minutes of Heaven 2009 It is very good at stating the obvious but fails to bring new insight to this age-old morality tale.
  20. The House of the Devil 2009 A horror film with no punch.
  21. Dean Spanley (My Talks with Dean Spanley) 2008 A dull and thoroughly stilly British drama based on the idea of canine reincarnation.
  22. Diminished Capacity 2008 Plays like diminished comedy.
  23. Downloading Nancy 2008 The actors gamely struggle to find some truth here, but their director lets them down: [Johan] Renck sees nothing other than True Events to exploit.
  24. Food, Inc. 2008 A riveting if distressing look at the essentially unregulated American food supply.
  25. Adrift in Manhattan 2007 The film's most effective moments are its quietest.
  26. Day Watch 2007 Its imagination is limited. The backstory is shallow and pat. Its characters are mostly one-note. And everything goes on much too long at 133 minutes.
  27. Deep Water 2006 Deep Water is a stunning documentary that not only beautifully elucidates a nearly forgotten incident but touches on crucial themes involving isolation, sanity, self-worth, impossible dreams, the nature of heroism and limits of human endurance.
  28. Dirty Deeds 2005 As feeble as a teen comedy can get.
  29. Prozac Nation 2005 [Ricci's] performance as a Harvard undergrad battling clinical depression compels your attention every moment she is on screen.
  30. Right at Your Door 2005 Right at Your Door takes a viewer on a harrowing, distinctly uncomfortable journey.
  31. The Forgotten 2004 As the psychological thriller moves steadily into science fiction, the switch in genres is never convincing.
  32. My Boss's Daughter 2003 The mishaps are mostly misfires, and the situations all feel contrived.
  33. Saints and Soldiers 2003 Little neatly ratchets up the suspense while throwing emotional spotlights on the inner struggles of each combatant trapped in this hostile, frozen wilderness riddled with German troops.
  34. Equilibrium 2002 Borrows from so many literary and cinematic sources that this future world feels absolutely deja vu.
  35. Girls Will Be Girls 2002 The comedy here is, in every possible meaning of the word, broad.
  36. View from the Top 2002 A flat, superficial comedy that never establishes a tone.
  37. Monkeybone 2001 The same imagination that went into the design of this carnival landscape has not gone into the structure or logic of the story.
  38. Pootie Tang 2001 This astonishingly unfunny Paramount comedy is burdened with writing, direction and acting that would cause Ed Wood to wince.
  39. Lara Croft - Tomb Raider 2001 There is more tension in Jolie's T-shirts than in the dramatic action.
  40. Zoolander 2001 During its fleeting moments onscreen, the movie's lighthearted spirit and comic energy make for entertaining, escapist fare.
  41. Vatel 2000 Impeccably directed.
  42. The Blair Witch Project 1999 The viewer never glimpses anything more than the shadow of a clever movie.
  43. Girl, Interrupted 1999 Never engages the viewer at a gut level.
  44. Runaway Bride 1999 There's no question the chemistry between them still works for a light romantic comedy. But an overcalculated, undernourished screenplay undermines much of the effort.
  45. Teaching Mrs. Tingle 1999 Contains enough amusing moments and unpredictable twists for the film to score with teen audiences.
