In an addition to five wide releases opening over the holiday weekend, three other films are opening in limited release in order to qualify for Oscar nominations. The three are Revolutionary Road, Last Chance Harvey, and Waltz With Bashir. Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet are getting mostly rave reviews for their performances in Revolutionary Road , which brings them together again for the first time since Titanic . "Winslet and DiCaprio have come a long way since the 1997 blockbuster; they've become consummate actors," writes Claudia Puig in USA Today. Speaking about DiCaprio, Manohla Dargis writes in the New York Times , "With his wide, uncertain, panicked face he shows you what a dreamer without a dream looks like." Of Winslet, Kenneth Turan writes in the Los Angeles Times , "Only a stone, frankly, would not be captured by the honesty and intensity of Winslet's performance, by the breathtaking way she throws herself into this lacerating emotional maelstrom." But the film itself, and director Sam Mendes fare less well among the critics. Indeed, Richard Schickel in Time magazine brands it "dreadful." [Summaries of reviews for Last Chance Harvey and Waltz With Bashir will appear here on Monday.]
