  • Somehow, Lucille's plight is meant to comment astutely on the civil-rights movement. Now that IS crazy.

  • Banderas may have been crazy to make such a heady directorial debut, but it's hard not to be charmed by his ambitions.

  • Risks trivializing history and pandering to feminist fantasies, but it may be the year's most fearless movie.
