"...What makes THE PLAYER the best and boldest American comedy in years is Altman's wizardry at leavening anger with cathartic wit..." Rolling Stone Ranked #8 in Entertainment Weekly's "10 Favorite Films of the 90's" - "...Altman's ticklish satire can stand with his timeless work..." Entertainment Weekly "...So entertaining, so flip and so genially irreverent that it seems to announce the return of the great gregarous film maker....The members of the huge cast seem to be having a great night out on the town..." New York Times "...THE PLAYER is a true comeback film for Altman -- a return, after more than 15 years, to the infinitely sly and supple virtuosity that marked his great film of the '70s..." Entertainment Weekly "...An artful stiletto aimed at the bashful heart of Hollywood....An extremely pointed and knowing show-biz dissection..." Los Angeles Times "...THE PLAYER is a smart movie, and a funny one. It is also absolutely of our time..." Chicago Sun-Times "...[The film] includes the greatest tracking shot this side of TOUCH OF EVIL and cameos from everyone: Bruce Willis, John Cusack, Julia Roberts..." Total Film 5 stars out of 5 -- "Altman set about mocking the hypocrisy of the business that had exiled him. In the guise of a black-comic thriller, he exposed the Hollywood malaise.

"...Effective ensemble movies depend on choosing the perfect actors, and GOSFORD PARK has perhaps the most dazzling cast that Altman has ever assembled..." Movieline's Hollywood Life "...What makes the achievement of GOSFORD PARK all the more remarkable is that Mr. Altman is 76....The energy that crackles from the screen suggests the clear-sighted joie de vivre of an artist still deeply engaged in the world..."New York Times "...This comedy of manners is so much fun that it wouldn't even need the mystery to be one of the year's top entertainments..." USA Today "...Elegant....Nuanced and intricate....The cast, of course, delivers the good, with outstanding performances coming from Emily Watson and Helen Mirren..." Box Office "...GOSFORD PARK abounds in scenes to savor. It's a feast, and one of Altman's best..." Rolling Stone "...Elegantly topsy-turvy....It's full of moments to savor....Altman has a spry mastery that's inspiring. The acting, down to the smallest role, is superb..."Entertainment Weekly "...A supple slice of entertainment, with some classy acting contributions..." Total Film "...Taking advantage of a splendid cast, a sharply focused script and the fresh English setting, GOSFORD park emerges as one of the most satisfying of Robert Altman's numerous ensemble pictures..." Variety "...A revelation....This is a quintessentially British movie, but one which only an outsider with Altman's energy could have made..." Sight and Sound "...The screenplay is masterful in introducing all the characters and gradually making it clear who they are, what they've done, and what it means....One of the best films of 2001..."

"THE CONSTANT GARDENER, a thriller with something on its mind, confirms the talents of Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles..." Movieline's Hollywood Life "[T]he ever-extraordinary Fiennes is the most quietly outstanding of the lot, miraculously showing us how his character literally ages with grief." Premiere "[Meirelles] brightens the author's wide, dark field with rich color....The movie is smart, serious, and adult about something that matters..." Entertainment Weekly "Meirelles emerges with one of the year's best and most provocative movies. Long after it's over, you still feel its sting." Rolling Stone "[U]nusually satisfying....Mr. Meirelle's film actually bothers to say something about global politics....This is a supremely well-executed piece of popular entertainment that is likely to linger in your mind and may even trouble your conscience." New York Times "THE CONSTANT GARDENER is a masterwork of suspense, romance and political intrigue. It is a taut and gripping thriller that dazzles the eyes and engages the brain in a way that few recent films have come close to approaching."USA Today "THE CONSTANT GARDENER is as much an incisive post-mortem of a relationship as it is a politically charged procedural." Sight and Sound Ranked #17 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "[T]his is an engrossing, intelligent film." Uncut "Movies that try to juggle a message of political or social significance with a love story often can't manage either, so the makers of this thriller deserve extra plaudits for their tender and intelligent handling of both."
