Times Staff Writer"Black Cloud" is a modest, straightforward but affecting coming-of-age story about a young Navajo with a real talent for boxing but who is also his own worst enemy. It marks a solid writing and directing debut for actor Rick Schroder, and it is above...
FOR THE TIMESFriday January 16, 1998 That actors of color are so infrequently cast as anything but hustlers and wastrels adds an extra dimension of intrigue to "The Keeper," a fable-like character drama that's the first feature by psychiatrist-cum-filmmaker...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday July 17, 1998 As a young woman, a suitcase in one hand, a cloth sack in the other, trudges along a dirt road, a man's voice recalls his youth in Pavel Chukhrai's Oscar-nominated "The Thief." It's a superb film in the classic style of screen...

TIMES FILM CRITICFriday December 31, 1999 Sixty years is quite a gap between an original and a sequel, but the 1940 "Fantasia" was never business as usual. A melding of animation and classical music, it has been ignored (by audiences at its initial release),...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday April 20, 2001 "The Low Down" is exactly what this English film doesn't deliver, for its maker, Jamie Thraves, reveals more about his central character in the publicity notes than on the screen. Thraves' first feature is so personal that he...

Times Staff WriterThere's not much of the blithe spirit in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" that made "Star Wars" and even old "Flash Gordon" serials such fun. Amid a stupefying barrage of fantastic images involving all manner of special effects, spectacular...
