Tribune movie criticWhen the Oscar nominations come out Tuesday, there are bound to be cries of injustice -- and in many cases, those charges will have merit. Can anyone really defend the exclusion from the Oscar nominee list in various years of movies such as "Some Like...
Los Angeles Times Staff WriterIt's one of the most urgent questions facing men of a certain age today, particularly in Latin American countries, a question that strikes at one's core values and affirms one's identity as a soccer-mad, tequila-swigging, red-blooded varon. That question...
Times Staff WriterWith his sloppy, frantically busy action film "Once Upon a Time in Mexico," Robert Rodriguez enters the realm of pure exploitation with a bang. Make that several thousand bangs. As loud as any Chinese New Year, with the rat-a-tat-tat of heavy artillery...

FOR THE TIMESFriday September 8, 2000 Since Quentin Tarantino has been making himself scarce--and Sergio Leone is dead, Howard Hawks is dead and John Woo is on Cruise control--Christopher McQuarrie has decided to fill the enormous void with "The Way of the Gun,"...
Times Staff WriterAn adrenaline shot to the movie heart, soul and mind, Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill Vol. 2" is a blast of pure pop pleasure. The second half of Tarantino's long-gestating epic, "Vol. 2" firmly lays to rest the doubts raised by "Vol. 1" as to whether...

Times Staff Writer"You don't know you're living in a golden age when you're in it," declares filmmaker Alexander Payne in the documentary "Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession." The golden age he's referring to is the 15-year run of the wonderfully eclectic cable channel...
Times Staff WriterRalph Torjan's trippy documentary, "Carlos Castaneda: Enigma of a Sorcerer," provokes more questions than it answers about the bestselling author and New Age guru who died under mysterious circumstances in 1998. The film primarily consists of interviews...
TRIBUNE MOVIE CRITIC4 stars (out of 4) At 74, Clint Eastwood still has some tricks up his sleeve, including, when he wants it, a knockout punch of shattering force. "Million Dollar Baby" - in which Eastwood admirably returns as director, producer and lead actor after...
TRIBUNE MOVIE CRITIC3 ½ stars (out of 4) Tsai Ming-Liang's "Goodbye, Dragon Inn" is a weird, funny, melancholy tribute to movies and movie-going, an opus for film geeks that rang my personal bell. A bizarre minimalist epic that will either transport or infuriate, it's...
