DVD The Architect [DVD]
"[The film] explores class and cultural gulfs. Anthony LaPaglia gives a world-weary depth to the architect..."Box Office
DVD Doubt [DVD] [Canadian; Biligual]
"The tension between unbending principle and the call for compassion and human understanding could scarcely be more pointedly evoked than it is here, and Davis' performance is devastatingly great..."Variety 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Hoffman nails every nuance in a complex role. And Streep is unmissable and unforgettable....There's no doubt about this mind-bender. It'll pin you to your seat."Rolling Stone "[Davis] has one significant scene, but it is long, crucial and heartbreaking. Davis goes face to face with Streep with astonishing conviction..."Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Streep delivers a bravura performance....Philip Seymour Hoffman is ever bit her equal in his spectacular portrayal....DOUBT compels viewers to examine their own assumptions as they become caught up in this fascinating tale."USA Today "Ms. Streep blows in like a storm, shaking up the story's reverential solemnity with gusts of energy and comedy."New York Times "On the stage as well as on the screen, DOUBT is a highly polished piece of business, with every speech and every action calculated for maximum effect..."Los Angeles Times Ranked #8 in Rolling Stone's 'Movies Of The Year' -- "[A] stinging film..."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 5 -- "[F]uelled equally by anger and compassion, writer-director John Patrick Shanley's DOUBT is a terrific and troubling drama of ideas bristling with nuance and grief."Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "Streep and Hoffman are superbly matched, while Adams brings a touching sincerity to her wide-eyed innocent. As fine as they are, however, it's Viola Davis who shines brightest..."Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Streep] slips something human between the gusts of piercing anger: wry grace notes written into her pursed lips and arching brow."Empire
DVD It's Kind of a Funny Story [DVD]
"IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY is kind of a perfect coming-of-age comedy....Fleck and Boden break the fourth wall brilliantly and frequently, and that inventiveness is one of the film's great charms."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "There is both poignancy and humor -- sometimes at the same time -- in this tale of an emotionally stressed teen who checks himself into a mental hospital."USA Today "[E]ngaging and sweet, with a nice feel for the purgatory-like blankness of mental hospital life..."A.V. Club "Galifianakis funnels all of his quirks...into the service of rounding out the character. It's less a selfless performance than one that's full of self; it's haphazardly but effectively Methodlike."Movieline "[With] some lovely visual and aural grace notes, including bits of sweet animation, music by Broken Social Scene, and the wacky sight of Galifianakis disguised in doctor scrubs." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 4 -- "Galifianakis is a comic force of nature, but he digs down here and delivers a beautifully nuanced performance that gets under your skin. Just like the movie."Rolling Stone
DVD Solaris [DVD] [Widescreen Version]
"...Visually handsome in an austere way..." New York Times "...Clooney does a convincing job....Davies is also strong....Soderbergh does a fine job of creating a moody atmosphere of pervasive anxiety..." USA Today "...SOLARIS is a mind-bender in the best sense of the word: The spell it casts follows you all the way home..." Rolling Stone "...Sleekly austere....McElhone is certainly someone to pine for -- there are depths to her apple-cheeked sculptural beauty..." Entertainment Weekly "...What it does most of all is reinforce Steven Soderbergh's position as Hollywood's most gifted chameleon, a filmmaker able to operate with elan in all manner of genres..." Los Angeles Times "...A uniquely dazzling display of its maker's cinematic virtuosity..." Box Office "...Technically superb and features a strong serious performance by George Clooney..." Variety
CD Music by Ry Cooder
Q (8/95, p.137) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...it's an intermittently interesting listen, best suited to the early morning..."Melody Maker (8/5/95, p.35) - "...up there with Ennio Morricone. Cooder's work...is an erudite, articulate exploration of the music indigenous to the particular film's setting....genius by the bucketload..."NME (Magazine) (7/15/95, p.49) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a marvellous, enquiring artist....There's masses of slide guitar and weird tunings; country blues gone futuristic and minimal. If you thought John Squire was a bit nifty on the bottleneck, then let Ry blow your tiny brain..."
