REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Mon., June 24, 2002

Motown's Berry Gordy produced this karate picture starring two one-named wonders, Taimak and Vanity (the Prince protégée), and a selection of Motown B-sides. Able-handed veteran Schultz directs. Look for William H. Macy and Chazz Palmintieri in bit roles.

Woman Thou Art Loosed
Based on a novel by Bishop T.D. Jakes, a black evangelical preacher and author who also co-stars, this unusual film is part revivalist sermon, part narrative drama, and wholly urgent and engaging.
