A.I. Artificial Intelligence A.I. Artificial Intelligence
In spite of the scientific coldness of its title, A.I., far from being a fortifying technological demonstration, is rather a fairy tale for adults with a child at its center.

Caché Caché
While I'm sure cerebral director Michael Haneke was aware that his film would provoke some kind of intellectual controversy, he must also have known that with his latest offering, he was taking the risk to alienate a big part of the audience who would unavoidably misread it.

The Cell The Cell
Though The Cell has a conventional framework in terms of the "serial killer" genre to which it belongs, it is only to reinforce the importance of the psychological scenes that use surrealism.

Eyes Wide Shut Eyes Wide Shut
Includes two movie analyses and a look at the film's marketing campaign.

Femme Fatale Femme Fatale
With Femme Fatale, Brian de Palma proposes an amused exercise in style, bright fireworks that voraciously embrace all the clichés of the genre and officiate as a parodied and baroque homage.

Mulholland Drive Mulholland Drive
Contrasting with the long undeviating lines of The Straight Story, Mulholland Drive is a tortuous road perched on the hills of Los Angeles that is the theater of a series of mysterious crimes. The perfect setting to mark the return of David Lynch with an ambitious and bewitching film that proves to be a major event this year.

The Ring The Ring
With its subtle and hypnotic approach to horror, its stylized esthetics and mirror effects, The Ring is an atypical film, a postmodern work that transcends a dying genre to feed itself with the obsessions and phobias of a society that's victim to media saturation.

Shoujyo Shoujyo
For his first time behind the camera, Eiji Okuda, chooses a difficult and embarrassing subject which he treats—and this is the strength of his film—with reserve and elegance.

In the Realm of the Senses In the Realm of the Senses
In the Realm of the Senses brings international recognition to the Japanese film director Nagisa Oshima while In the Realm of Passion is a more diegetical, thematical, aesthetical and commercial sequel.

Solaris Solaris
By approaching Andrei Tarkovski's classic Solaris, Steven Soderbergh has created an unexpected clone, a respectful and bare variation that never pretends to challenge the original but is equipped with its own individuality and beauty.
