TIMES FILM CRITICFriday September 10, 1999 If there is a lesson to be learned from "Stigmata," this is it: Never send your daughter a rosary stolen from the corpse of a recently deceased saintly priest who for mysterious reasons had hidden himself away in a tiny...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday March 10, 2000 Better than Harrison Ford, John Travolta or even Leonardo DiCaprio, getting the devil involved in your picture is a sure way of getting it made. Not necessarily as a producer or financial backer (though that probably wouldn't...

TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday February 18, 2000 Every generation, or so it would seem, needs its own bleak tale about the manly world of business. One would have thought Arthur Miller had made the definitive statement with "Death of a Salesman" in 1949, but then came...
TIMES STAFF WRITERTuesday February 22, 2000 When renowned British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton embarked upon a bold attempt to cross the continent of Antarctica via the South Pole in 1914, among the crew of 27 aboard his sailing ship Endurance was the already...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday March 3, 2000 Bosnian-born filmmaker Jasmin Dizdar sets the tone for his bravura allegory "Beautiful People" right at the start, as two men, one a shaggy Croat (Faruk Pruti), the other a swarthy Serb (Dado Jehan), recognize each other on a...

TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday February 25, 2000 Eric Mendelsohn's "Judy Berlin" is a comedy of the most delicately balanced perfection, rueful yet radiant, every moment calibrated with exquisite precision for just the right effect. And yet it never seems less than...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday October 15, 1999 Cedric Kahn's relentless "L'Ennui" is such a rigorous exploration of sexual obsession that it proves to be a most demanding film. Virtually devoid of eroticism and sensuality, it depicts with the utmost realism a 17-year-...

TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday May 12, 2000 Not far from the Grand Canyon, Michael (Jamie Foxx) and Rae (Nia Long)--a vacationing couple from Chicago--are driving across the desert in a mint-condition '57 Golden Hawk Studebaker. Rae is not as thrilled with her fiance's...
