Also highly entertaining were Peter Jackson's droll pseudodocumentary Forgotten Silver; Peter Chan's Hong Kong melodrama Comrades, Almost a Love Story; the Coen brothers' The Big Lebowski; Dutch director Mike van Diem's Oscar-winning Character; Abbas Kiarostami's A Taste of Cherry; Kirk Wong's nasty crime comedy The Big Hit; Richard Donner's Lethal Weapon 4; Shunji Iwai's 1995 melodrama When I Close My Eyes, only now arriving in the United States; the Farrelly brothers' There's Something About Mary; Manuel Poirier's picaresque Western; Spanish auteur Bigas Luna's The Chambermaid; Mexican director Jaime Humberto Hermosillo's Esmeralda Comes by Night; John Waters' Pecker; Antz, the other computer-animated bug film; Trey Parker's funky student feature Cannibal! The Musical; Ronny Yu's ingenious Bride of Chucky; and Celebrity, which, though nearly ruined by Kenneth Branagh's imitation of writer-director Woody Allen's mannerisms, was redeemed by the acute wit that distinguishes even such minor Allen efforts.
