"...Because it is so careful with its effects, this film's ability to create feeling sneaks up and surprises....This is a story with a will to move us and the ability to do whatever it takes to make that happen..."Los Angeles Times "...There's inventiveness, intelligence, even brilliance here..."Total Film "...ROAD TO PERDITION has the juice to get its hooks into you, knock you off balance and keep you that way for two hours. It's a triumph for director Sam Mendes..."Rolling Stone "...[Law] helps bring this dark, strange, and ultimately moving film into disturbing places of the sort that most studio movies can't even imagine, let alone depict..."Premiere "...Beautifully made, well-acted, brilliantly photographed..."Chicago Sun-Times "...Hanks and Newman are radiant with the blessings of unstopped talent, two greats from two generations who each understand the power of underplaying..."Entertainment Weekly "...A truly majestic visual poem....Mr. Hanks does a powerful job..."New York Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] pulls off the nifty trick of being both impressively epic and movingly intimate."Empire37.91124

3 stars out of 5 -- "[B]lunt and intimate....The jolt of JARHEAD is undeniable, and it comes when you least expect it." Rolling Stone "[A]n eye-opening experience....[Mendes] forges, perhaps, a new kind of drama: a portrait of war stripped of all glamour and design....JARHEAD is an existential docudrama: cool and funny, vivid and remote at the same time." -- Grade: B+ Entertainment Weekly "The result is rewarding....It's good to see Mendes expanding as a filmmaker."USA Today "[Q]uizzical, visually striking....JARHEAD provides some kind of reportage of a war whose consequences we haven't yet begun to understand..." Sight and Sound "[A]n exceptionally smart war movie, the more so for the relative absence of any war." Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's an image of war that lingers, a vision of Hell which Dante would recognise..." Total Film37.56421

"...Consistently provocative and devilishly amusing....AMERICAN BEAUTY is a real American original..." Variety Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's "Ten Best Movies of 1999" -- "...[A] justly celebrated look at what gets lost in life when we numb ourselves to feeling..." Rolling Stone "...Sees beauty in our most common mistakes and failures. This is a masterpiece..." -- 5 out of 5 stars Premiere "...AMERICAN BEAUTY is that rare instance where all the elements of a movie -- story, setting, acting, shot construction -- come together to convey its message..." Box Office "...Spacey gives sardonic snap to every line he delivers....The movie is a beaut. It's as feeling as it is funny, a quality recent movies seemed to have lost..."USA Today "...Unsettling, unnerving, undefinable....BEAUTY is a blood-chilling dark comedy with unexpected moments of both fury and warmth, a strange, brooding and very accomplished film that sets us back on our heels from its opening frames..." Los Angeles Times "...Spacey, an actor who embodies intelligence in his eyes and voice, is the right choice for Lester Burnham..." Chicago Sun-Times37.56421
