Being John Malkovich
Rarely is there a movie about which you can honestly say that it's like nothing you've ever seen before. Being John Malkovich is one such movie -- a wildly inventive,...

The Year of Being John Malkovich
Top 10 Films of the Year, Decade, and Eternity
Screens Story  January 7, 2000, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It was also a good year for narrative experimentation as demonstrated by such films as Being John Malkovich, Go, The Limey, and Run Lola Run. With South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, we saw the most daring musical to come out of Hollywood in many a year..."

The Convent

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Love is never having to say "I erased you."
Film Review  March 19, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It’s presented in the movie very nonscientifically – in fact, the doctor’s contraption looks like an upside-down soup tureen with a few attached electrodes on top. We’re in the alterna-world of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman here, and we accept the memory-erasing thingamajig just as we accepted the seventh-and-a-half floor in his script for Being John Malkovich or his maybe-he’s-there-or-maybe-he’s-not brother in Adaptation..."

The Dancer Upstairs

Shadow of the Vampire
F.W. Murnau's 1922 vampire classic Nosferatu gets a boost from Merhige's fictional account of its creation in Shadow of the Vampire. If anything, it should have people racing to Blockbuster...

In the Line of Fire
The only thing “that's not gonna happen” (to quote the movie's catch-phrase) is box-office failure for In the Line of Fire. Eastwood's latest, in which he stars but does not...

Jane Campion brings her modern sensibilities to this story of Henry James’ 1870s heroine Isabel Archer, a young, sharp-minded, American woman abroad who inherits unexpected wealth and uses it to live as she likes, traveling and rejecting numerous suitors until she falls into an unwise marriage that nearly becomes her ruination.

The Ogre
Schlondorff's best film since 1979's The Tin Drum reiterates many of that Academy Award-winning film's main themes: the corrupting influence of fascism on the young and young-at-heart, the inescapable attraction...

Mary Reilly
A gothic little slip of a film, beautiful to behold but with less substance than the shadowy tendrils of fog that blanket nearly every scene. Frears (The Grifters, Dangerous Liaisons)...
