American Teen (2008, 95 min., PG-13)

A princess, jock, rebel, heartthrob, and geek: It could be The Breakfast Club, but American Teen is instead a documentary that ducks the consequences of its own making.

American Wedding (2003, 95 min., R)

Jesse Dylan’s first feature was the ganja-infused comedy How High, which, while not exactly a high-bongwater mark in the annals of stoner merriment, managed to keep my dog fixated on the TV screen the other day, ...

Inspirational documentary is about Americans with true grit working in a land where seldom is heard a discouraging word.

Amistad (1997, 155 min., R)

Amistad is a disappointment if the standard for judging Steven Spielberg's new film is the state of mute, stumbling devastation that Schindler's List inspired in its viewers. The story it recounts, an 1839 slave rebellion aboard ...

Amores Perros (2000, 153 min., R)

Three stories about beast and man.

Amos & Andrew (1993, 96 min., PG-13)

Amos & Andrew is a better-than-average comedy that's likable enough while unfolding but evaporative when over. It takes a topical subject -- racial prejudice -- and combines it with a familiar narrative strategy -- mistaken identity ...

Death is part of love’s bargain, a fact filmmaker Michael Haneke lays bare.

Amy's Orgasm (2001, 85 min., NR)

An American Rhapsody (2001, 106 min., PG-13)

Produced by Steven Spielberg, this animated film follows the further adventures of the Mousekewitz family, who came to America to escape the cat pogroms.

An American Werewolf in Paris (1997, 98 min., R)

In horror terms, 16 years is a dang nigh unprecedented span between an original movie and a sequel. There must have been--what? -- seven or eight Friday the 13th sequels in less than half that time. ...

An Angel at My Table (1990, 158 min., R)

On the surface An Angel at My Table is a straightforward biopic about the life of celebrated New Zealand author Janet Frame. But Frame's life story is anything but your typical "portrait of the artist." Then ...

Anaconda (1997, 89 min., PG-13)

The best giant snake film of 1997! Okay, okay, the only giant snake film of 1997. Which makes it the best, right? Well… yeah, in a way. Truth be told, Anaconda is a numbingly pedestrian affair, ...

Analyze This (1999, 103 min., R)

You don't need a psychology degree to catch all the Freudian subcurrents in Hollywood gangster flicks. All those gun barrels getting stuffed down men's throats, all those big cigars, all that Oedipal conniving to knock off ...

A teen searches for belonging and unconditional love in this animated film set against the sanitized background of the Russian Revolution.

Anchoress (1993, 106 min.)

… And God Spoke (the making of …) (1993, 83 min., NR)

A mock documentary about a producer and director of exploitation flicks who try to do a class adaptation of the Bible. Borman's behind-the-scenes spoof might be said to show the un-making of the film ...And God ...
