Movie Reviews

Three... Extremes - Three Asian directors deliver very different short horror films. Fruit Chan's "Dumplings" is about an aging actress (Miriam Yeung) who visits a woman (Bai Ling) whose dumplings are said to revive youth. In "Cut" by Park Chan-Wook, a director is terrorized by a psychotic home invader, while Takashi Miike's "Box" is about a writer (Kyoko Hasegawa) haunted by the ghost of her dead sister. Full review

Lords of Dogtown - Directed by Catherine Hardwicke in the same gritty, energetic indie style she brought to her 2003 debut, Thirteen, looks good and sounds good, too. (Amazing skate-cam shots; another retro soundtrack, with the likes of Cream, Stevie Wonder, the Allman Brothers.) Full review

The Beautiful Country - Ambitious, lyrical and sweetly sad in its underlying optimism in the face of bitter hardship, "The Beautiful Country" is a true hands-across-the-water effort, both with its cast and crew and with its far-ranging scope. Full review

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - Visually speaking, "Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow" lives up to all the hype and even the superlative adjectives tossed around by the studio's public relations department. Full review
