• Sahara - The spawn of Michael Eisner's loins (ew - we can't believe we went there) directs "real-life loves!" Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz in a boom-crash big-budget adaptation of Clive Cussler's novel. Steve Zahn cashes check, tries to stay out of the way.
  • Kung Fu Hustle - "a kung fu parody that's also a terrific kung fu movie."
  • Eros - A cinephile's wet dream: A triptych of films by Michelangelo Antonioni, Wong Kar Wai and Steven Soderbergh. Word on the street is, Wong's section is radiant, Soderbergh's is watchable, and Antonioni ... should be happy Red Desert still makes the rep circuit.
