Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Adapted from Patrick Süskind's heretofore unadaptable cult novel about an olfactory vampire in 18th-century France, Perfume is a gorgeous but woefully overlong and ultimately misguided mess.
"...attempts to re-create Süskind's memorably overripe novel via the visual (and to a lesser degree, audio) nature of film...."

William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
This Shakespeare rendition is not so much a reconceptualization as a recontextualization of the 400-year-old play. This Romeo + Juliet is a rich visual feast, besotted with the fervor of its acrobatic camerawork and kinetic staging and its mind-bending aggregation of unrelated but resonant fragments of 20th century iconography. It is a Shakespearean work thoroughly conceived for the screen. DiCaprio and Danes again prove that they are two of the best actors of their generation. And William Shakespeare has once more demonstrated that he is a storyteller for all time.
"...positioned to slip one past the Shakespeare purists and art aesthetes while building a base of support among the..."
