All About My Mother

The Pedro Almodovar of the late 1990s is not the same director who once engaged audiences with his kinky and offbeat views of sex and relationships. This new, kinder, gentler Almodovar is more concerned about conventional film elements like plot a...

Bad Education

In recent years, few things have been more certain than the guarantee of something delicious from director Pedro Almodóvar. Almodóvar has become like a trusted brand name - reliable and consistent. Unfortunately, with his new effort, called Bad E...

Basic Instinct 2

Who would have imagined that the most appropriate word to describe Basic Instinct 2 would be "boring?" This plodding, pretentious follow-up to 1992's hit replaces Paul Verhoeven's lurid, over-the-top style with the leaden rhythms of Michael Caton-...

Belle Epoque

"Belle Epoque is the story of Paradise: too good to last. It's about the discovery of life, but the real one, I mean: freedom, art, love, sex, friendship...all the things that make life interesting. It's an oasis... Maybe it's too idealistic, b...

Broken Embraces

Perhaps Almodovar and film noir simply don't mix. This is the second time in three films the acclaimed Spanish director has attempted to apply his unique style to a twisty mystery and, as was the case with Bad Education, it's not a marriage made i...

Buried

Let me start out by saying that Buried isn't a lot of fun, but it is raw and compelling. In the same way it's impossible to turn away from a grisly accident, taking your eyes away from Ryan Reynolds' hypnotizing performance is not an option. Ther...

Che

What potentially could have been the greatest asset possessed by Che - its unapologetic length - turns into its greatest detriment. One frequent complaint about cinematic biopics is that too much condensation is required and, as a result, key aspe...

Cold Light of Day, The

Tag line #1: "An action-packed international thriller starring Bruce Willis, Sigourney Weaver, and soon-to-be Superman Henry Cavill." Tag line #2: "A box office disaster with perhaps the most uncharismatic action hero of the decade in a preposte...

Colossal

Colossal might look like a monster movie. Indeed, it may feature a Godzilla-like giant lizard leveling a major city in the Far East but, in many ways, that’s just window dressing. Allegorical in the extreme, Colossal is really a drama about...

Debt, The

Perhaps the most complimentary thing that can be said about Barney Elliott’s directorial debut, The Debt, is that it has the best of intentions. Unfortunately, a worthy message doesn’t necessarily equate to a good movie and, in this case, ...
