Breach Review


Very Good
Moving briskly from equivocator Stephen Glass to the chairman of the Benedict Arnold Fan Club, Robert Hanssen, director Billy Ray turns his tonal focus from Shattered Glass's journalistic felony to high crime in the intelligence agency. In what seems to be a new trend of cinematically capturing events before they have actually played out, Breach reenacts what is widely accepted as the greatest fracture of FBI security in the history of the organization.

Following possible terrorists and their contacts, Eric O'Neil (Ryan Phillipe) eagerly tries to discuss bureau protocol with his team, only to be ignored and have his well-prepared report on the subject shoved back in his face. That is, until he is dragged into a bureau conference room on a Sunday to meet with his superior and head agent Kate Burroughs (Laura Linney). It's here that O'Neil is asked to shadow Russian intelligence specialist Robert Hanssen (Chris Cooper) for what is originally agreed to be sexually perverse activities. It isn't till O'Neil is taken under wing by the intelligence expert that Burroughs reveals that Hanssen has actually been selling information to the Russians for some time and has cost the government billions of dollars and uncountable agent lives.

24: Season Four Review


Extraordinary
Before launching with any credibility into my review of 24, I must confess in the church of guilty little pleasures my absolute obsession with the program and the pursuits of its hero, the honorable Mr. Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). At the mercy of the networks, such devotion and obsession are rewarded with sweaty and torturous weeklong waits. The clock ticks Monday to Sunday with its trademark "beep... beep... beep..." for anxious fans anticipating the coming thrills of a fresh episode. Will the President survive? Will the bomb be launched? Will Michelle end up with Tony? In DVD format, such questions are answered with great expediency, the wait reduced to whatever length of time your anxiety permits, and the resulting real "real time" is the epitome of geekish rushes. 24's fourth season is its best yet and demonstrates most ferociously the brilliance of the program's premise and its suitability to the instantly accessible digital and versatile disc.

Having saved the President from assassination, the country from both nuclear and viral threats, and having been addicted to heroin, lost his wife and had to murder his boss, one understands when in the first moments of season four Jack Bauer is under different employment. No longer at CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) - in fact not even welcome there - Jack is now the chief bodyguard for Secretary of Defense James Heller (William Devane). Jack's love interest for the day, Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), happens to be his boss' daughter, and when dad and daughter are kidnapped, ransomed and threatened with live web-syndicated trial and execution, Bauer must again brace the corridors of CTU and endeavor to save the day, for the fourth time.

The Minus Man Review


Bad
I'm still trying to figure out how to look at The Minus Man. Either it's supposed to be a dark, black comedy, or it's supposed to be a thoughtful, pensive drama/thriller a la Sling Blade.

Either way, it's a dismal failure.

Continue reading: The Minus Man Review

Love And Basketball Review


Weak
Of all of the projects for Spike Lee to attach his name onto, Love and Basketball may go down as one of the most idiotic. Lee produced this Hoop Dreams meets Romeo and Juliet love story and his largest mistake by far was to hand the position of director over to Gina Prince-Bythewood. Prince may have made four films, but she still hasn't gotten it quite right. And, from the looks of it, she won't be getting it right anytime soon.

Love and Basketball concerns Monica Wright (Sanaa Lathan), a basketball loving girl who wants nothing more than to be the first woman in the NBA. Her next door neighbor, Quincy McCall (Omar Epps) is the son of a NBA player and wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and get some booty along the way. When he realizes (at about age 18) that the booty he has been wanting all along has been living next door, he quickly hooks up with her. Both find themselves going to USC and both find themselves on the USC basketball teams.

The Thirteenth Floor Review


Weak
I want to start by mentioning that I actually work on the 13th floor of a real live building in downtown San Francisco. My business card actually reads "13th Floor". Reading my business card is more interesting than this film.

Interesting premise: Computer geniuses build a virtual reality machine that lets them go back in time to 1937 Los Angeles. Only the virtual people have feelings and emotions just like us; they don't know they're not real. But then they find out.

Absolute Power Review


Bad
Really lame thriller about the president and the cover-up that ensues when he murders some hot chick. Can't believe William Goldman wrote this crap, or that Eastwood, Hackman, Harris, and Davis bothered to get involved with it either.

Suture Review


Extraordinary
The sleeper of the early 1990s, Suture is one of those stylish thrillers that you never forget. Shot in black and white, it tells the relatively simple story of a pair of long-lost brothers, one of whom tries to kill the other in order to escape his past and steal the brother's identity. Everyone comments on how alike they look -- the conceit being that the two actors are as opposite in appearance as possible -- one is black and largish (Haysbert), one is white and thin. Stunning photography and a very clever script make Suture the best movie you've never seen. Highly recommended.

Sinbad: Legend Of The Seven Seas Review


OK
DreamWorks' animated division continues its mediocre streak of family-centered adventures with the visually stimulating but substandard Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.

Based ever-so-loosely on Sinbad's literary escapades, the film shows our courageous thief (voiced by Brad Pitt) in pursuit of the mystical Book of Peace. When mischievous goddess Eris (voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer) steals the book from Proteus (voiced by Joseph Fiennes), she frames Sinbad for her crime. Now the self-centered rogue and his stowaway love interest, Marina (voiced by Catherine Zeta-Jones), must reclaim the book from the Realm of Chaos to prove Sinbad's innocence and spare Proteus' life at the hands of an executioner.

Random Hearts Review


Terrible
What does Hollywood have against us? Year in and year out, we fork over millions and millions of dollars to see movies that are consistently bad. Sure, a few of them are good and more than a few of them are enjoyable, but most of the movies are bad. Yet we still pay. And still they proceed to torture us with movies like Random Hearts.

Torture is the correct term for such a movie, one that spends two hours and twenty minutes evoking boredom, yawns, and snores from the audience. There is no kinder way to put it. However, I could be completely honest and say that this is perhaps the worst two and a half hours I have spent in a movie theatre all year... and I've seen a lot of really bad movies.

Love Field Review


OK
The death of JFK is the backdrop for this quirky and vaguely unsatisfying film, which puts Michelle Pfeiffer (Oscar nominated here) in a platinum blonde 'do and on a road trip to the Kennedy funeral with an unlikely companion: Dennis Haysbert and his young daughter. Not quite a study of civil rights in the '60s, not quite a Thelma & Louise, and not quite a relationship story, Love Field is mostly a by-the-book period drama intended as Oscar bait. This time, it worked.

The Minus Man Review


Good

Early on in "The Minus Man" you're not quite sure what you're seeing. There's a drifter named Vann (Owen Wilson) who lands in a small town. He's a polite, upright joe, but there's something not right about him that's hard to pin down.

He moves into with a tormented couple (Mercedes Ruehl and Brian Cox), who rent him the untouched room that once belonged to their missing (or is she dead?) daughter. He gets a job at the Post Office and is quickly promoted from sorter to carrier based on little more than his queer congeniality. He clumsily romances another postal employee (Janeane Garofalo in the cynicism-free role of an insecure romantic doormat), and just as the movie starts to look like a slice of life/ensemble of oddballs flick, townspeople start disappearing.

No one suspects Vann, of course. At first, not even the audience realizes they should. But Vann, you see, is a serial killer.

Far From Heaven Review


Excellent

An extraordinary homage to, and deconstruction of, Douglas Sirk's melodramas of the 1950s, "Far from Heaven" is a layer cake of potent emotion, puritanical taboo, composed anguish, and forbidden affections festering below the idealistic facade of an Eisenhower-era New England family.

Operating on three levels at once while giving each a rich, resonant texture, writer-director Todd Haynes ("Safe," "Velvet Goldmine") ensnares the audience in the idyllic Technicolor fiction of the period in which it takes place -- right down to the sweeping, cursive title credits so corny they get a laugh. He plumbs the highly sensitive, highly secretive true hearts of his characters, who desperately try to plaster over cracks in the perfect-family facade as their lives unravel. But at the same time he discredits the halcyon image of a time that demanded such concealment by exposing its rampant, acute discrimination and its all-consuming importance of keeping up appearances.

Julianne Moore gives an intense, captivating, flawless performance as Cathy Whitaker, a consummate '50s housewife with a seemingly perfect husband named Frank (Dennis Quaid) who is a sales executive for a line of televisions, and two obedient children who never need scolding for infractions any worse than saying "Aw, jeez!" when told it's time for bed.

The Thirteenth Floor Review


Weak

If you couldn't wrap your head around "eXistenZ"or "TheMatrix," this year's other two virtualreality thrillers, "The Thirteenth Floor" may be more your speed.

Similar in theme -- with simulated worlds layered uponone another and actuality strongly in question -- but aimed squarely atthe lowest common denominator, this high-gloss, high-concept string ofshallow surprises and gaping holes start well but quickly becomes so absurdthat the audience at the sneak preview I attended was laughing out loudat some of the movie's most somber moments.

The biggest chortle came when one of the characters tearfullydeclares her love for a guy who, it has been revealed, is merely a computersimulation. I mean, human-hologram love stories were silly when "StarTrek" did them 10 years ago.
