3 stars out of 5 -- "[F]unny, strange and beautifully put together."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t has enough individuality, imagination and idiosyncratic invention to identify it as a true original."Empire "Mr. Ayoade's new film, adapted from Dostoyevsky's novella THE DOUBLE is at least as startling as SUBMARINE in its visual design, eerie environments and unusual premise."Wall Street Journal 3 stars out of 4 -- "[P]aying homage to the likes of BRAZIL, Orson Welles' THE TRIAL and ERASERHEAD within its first five minutes, THE DOUBLE insists upon its bona fides with a will and makes you like it."Roger Ebert "In THE DOUBLE, Richard Ayoades energetically stylized adaptation of a Dostoyevsky novella, Jesse Eisenberg plays Simon James, a man so unassuming that he barely exists."New York Times "The second feature directed by Richard Ayoade is a dark and surreal comedy-thriller that takes a dizzying jaunt through cinematic and literary allusion, parody and paranoia."Film Comment0.6812701

Rolling Stone (6/22/00, p.135) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A lazy dissolving dream of a record that glimmers in and out like a mirage and sharpens to a hard focus with songs like 'Sonic Wind'....conjuring a phantom photograph of the American West, overgrown with cactus and the unemployed."Entertainment Weekly (5/19/00, p.74) - "...Burrows deep into south-of-the-border territory, with authentic waltz-time instrumentals, then warbles murder ballads and emotional road-kill tales that sound like Will Oldham fronting a mariachi band." - Rating: A-Q (6/00, p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Highly evocative....sounding like a collection of offcuts from Orson Welles' 'A Touch Of Evil'....Accordions, melodica, trumpets and vibes give the album a haunting ambience..."Magnet (8-9/00, pp.68-9) - "You'll need all the quiet you can possibly summon to hear the layered nuances embedded in the grooves of HOT RAIL....It's eerie quiet makes it so memorable....Seek not to label but to listen."The Wire (5/00, p.63) - "...Combines scorched soundtracks with moody ballads....adding more impressionistic interludes and vocal tracks..."CMJ (5/8/00, p.27) - "...Unfurls dramatically, with more colors and a sharper eye for detail....backed by sumptuous horns, slide guitars and more, HOT RAIL sounds like a collaborative effort between the Buena Vista Social Club, a wild-eyed wunderkind producer and a Gram Parsons-influenced rock star..."Melody Maker (5/30/00, p.57) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...a mix of down-home country charms and knowingly worldly sophistication....made for everyone who's ever come second in any of life's duels. Beautiful."Mojo (Publisher) (5/00, p.93) - "...A beautiful, accomplished work....The lyrics are resigned and weary but the music is sensuous and evocative."0.4541801

"...Baldwin's interior struggle is the stuff of literature..." - Recommended Premiere "...THE SHADOW displays considerable bravura....A pleasing period look..." Sight and Sound "...Sleek, entertaining....Baldwin [is] a wily actor who brings along just the right mix of do-goodism and evil potential..." New York Times "...It has the benefit of a combination of gorgeous production design and eye-catching visual effects. If ever a film looked exactly the way you hoped and imagined it would, THE SHADOW is it..." Los Angeles Times "...If you respond to film noir, if you like dark streets and women with scarlet lips and big fast cars with running boards, the look of this movie will work some kind of magic....Style and tone are everything with a movie like this..."

"Capitalizing on his subjects mobile face, authoritative voice and glorious ego, Frank Pavich directs by ceding the stage to their owner, a handsome devil of 85 who remains convinced of the would-have-been magnificence of his forcibly abandoned project."New York Times "If you enjoy sci-fi, cult cinema, or messianic quests by quixotic lunatics, you will love this movie." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly "[An] exhilarating documentary....A great seminar on creativity."Wall Street Journal 3 stars out of 4 -- "Kurt Stenzel from Six and Violence scores JODOROWSKY'S DUNE with a nicely weirdo hum."Chicago Sun-Times "Pavichs film is less about ruminating on what might have been than asking why its important to create. Jodorowskys opus found its place in the cosmos, even without existing." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club 3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's warm and inspirational: a call to arms for dreamers everywhere."RogerEbert.com "We may never know if the midnight movie maestro's DUNE would have been a game-changer or a head-scratcher. But the documentary about it is speculative catnip for cineastes of all stripes."Los Angeles Times0.2935021

"...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. And Hollywood loved him for it."Empire0.2445851

"Jackson worked fresh magic at his Weta studios in his native New Zealand, where he had Kong do battle with prehistoric predators on Skull Island..." Rolling Stone "[T]he movie seals Jackson's reputation: He's the most gifted big-picture artist working today....What resonates is the story, which is a very human tale of compassion, greed, loss, bravery, creativity, foolishness, and love." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly "[Jackson] succeeds through a combination of modesty and reckless glee, topping himself at every turn and reveling in his own showmanship." New York Times "Jackson is a visionary filmmaker who is not only a technical wizard but also a master storyteller."USA Today "[A] witty comment on the darkness at the heart of adventure stories, a bazillion-dollar spectacle that reserves the right to question the morality of spectacles, and, mostly, a tender love story about a melancholy girl and her tragically misunderstood monkey."Los Angeles Times Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "[I]t has a marvelous fairy-tale kinetic grandeur....KING KONG attains a primal-pop romantic glory..." Entertainment Weekly "Once in the lost world, Jackson reproduces the breathless pacing of the 1933 film, tipping from one huge set-piece to the next..." Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's made with love, care, and tremendous intelligence.This is still a moving love story at heart..." Uncut "[The] picture does a great job of creating the period of the storytelling....The fantastic mix is energetic and invigorating." Widescreen Review0.1956681
