"...Depp has his trademark intensity throttled all the way up here, but it's for naught. Theron, for her part, looks like a Polanski-era Mia Farrow, exhibiting all of the coif and none of the charm..."

"...No amount of studiously uncool decorative metal wall hangings and billowing chintz, however, can make anything original out of the low-rent proceedings. The Polanski rips begin with the obvious (having a couple named Mia and John, as in Farrow and Cassavetes, is about as blatant as you can get) and continue throughout, to an annoying degree..."
"...D: Roman Polanski; with Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sydney Blackmer, Charles Grodin...."
"...What sets The Last Unicorn apart from its animated brethren? Well, for starters, there's the dark, moody plot, infused with Beagle's wry, deadpan humor and laced with melancholic themes of mortality and regret. Upon discovering that she's the last of her kind, a lone unicorn (voiced by Mia Farrow) sets out to find the rest of her kin, undergoing a startling transformation into a human woman at the height of her quest..."
"...RECKLESSD: Norman RenŽ; with Mia Farrow, Scott Glenn, Mary-Louise Parker, Tony Goldwyn, Eileen Brennan, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Dorff. (PG-13, 92 min.) Okay; itÕs Christmastime and youÕre thinking that you just might explode if you watch ItÕs a Wonderful Life one more time. Although we embrace as a part of our heritage that movieÕs lessons about the goodness of humanity, the riches inherent in living a simple, uncelebrated life, and the community virtues practiced by small-town Middle Americans, stillÉ there are just some holiday seasons when HollywoodÕs nostalgic vision of the Americana that never was seems nearly as sticky and welcome as another fruitcake..."
"...As is the case with most of Allen’s films in the last 25 years or so, the script plays like a first draft, with the characters spouting stilted dialogue you’d never use in conversation, much less ever say out loud. (It’s weird, but you can hear Mia Farrow speaking some of the words.) When Timberlake’s tanned (and unreliable) narrator, a wannabe Eugene O’Neill who calls himself a writer but apparently never writes, breaks through the fourth wall to address the film’s thematic quandaries, you cringe..."
"...There are moments in Joshua that recall, in their spare, sublime paranoiac vision of parenthood, another archetypal cinematic bad seed: no, not Damien of The Omen, but Rosemary Woodhouse's newborn, Adrian, later to become the father of lies, flies, and so on in Rosemary's Baby. Texas-born filmmaker Ratliff, working from a script co-written with David Gilbert, mines a tonally similar vision of the nuclear family as hellish dystopia, and despite the lack of Mia Farrow's crucified-puppy eyes (or anything as freakishly apropos as her third-act Vidal Sassoon hairdo), Joshua succeeds on its own terms, supernatural or not..."
"...WESTWARD HO: It's just not summer until Project Transitions has its annual Texas Swing fundraiser and what a sizzler it was (it was so hot I found myself thanking the spirits above that I've chosen a Mia Farrow circa 1968 haircut, or I would have looked like I'd been "rode hard and put up wet"). But, heat be damned, Scholz Garten was packed! The seductive scent of barbecue permeated the night, while the music of the legendary Alvin Crow set the pace..."
"...So much of Birth occurs in quiet or near-silence that the impact of the movie is conveyed through the heroine’s expressions. Kidman’s face (framed by the cropped hairdo that’s pointedly reminiscent of Mia Farrow in that other New York-set supernatural tale Rosemary’s Baby) registers a remarkable range of emotions, often within the confines of a single take (best seen in the film’s several-minutes-long opera sequence)..."
"...The concept crystallized in 1980, with the formation of the Ideal Village Development Cooperative of Austin, a governing board of sorts that integrated a business plan and some real estate savvy with the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the spiritual leader whose name became a household word in 1968, when he introduced the Beatles and Mia Farrow -- and the rest of the world, for that matter -- to the wonders of Transcendental Meditation. Mindful of the Maharishi's vision of creating "ideal villages" around the globe, DevCo, as the cooperative called itself, raised funds through personal contributions and others committed to the project..."
"...Directed by: Michel Gondry. Starring: Jack Black, Mos Def, Danny Glover, Mia Farrow and Melonie Diaz..."
"...(1985, 82min/color and b&w, 35mm) Mia Farrow, Jeff Daniels, and Danny Aiello. Directed by Woody Allen..."
"...This Friday night Biography (A&E; 10/17; 7pm) profiles actress Mia Farrow in a sympathetic but even-handed look at her rather public life, from her marriage to Frank Sinatra to the humiliating break-up of her relationship with Woody Allen. Farrow, as well as her mother, actress Maureen O'Sullivan, is also interviewed..."
