Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

(John Madden)

Anybody remember when Nicolas Cage was a good actor? Remember Penelope Cruz’s Spanish films? A word to the wise: films with Academy Award hopes don’t get dumped in August.

The Center Of The World

(Wayne Wang)

Dot-com boy meets stripper and hires her for a weekend in Vegas. Low-light digital video, dark film transfer, visual mud, and the woman on the poster ain’t star Molly Parker — it’s porn star Alisha Klass, who would have been more interesting in the part.

(Sam Weisman)

(Woody Allen)

The Man Who Cried

(Sally Potter)
