  2002 in film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is later announced that this film is expected to be the final Star Trek film for the foreseeable future.
Please note that following the tradition of the English language film industry, these are the top grossing films that were first released in the United States and Canada in 2002; because they may have made most of their income in a later year, they may not be the top-grossing films for calendar year.
In the film industry, a wide-release movie is a film that studios believe will appeal to a broad spectrum of the public and that shows in at least 600 theatres in the United States and Canada.

Oasis (Hangul: 오아시스) (2002) is South Korean director Lee Chang-dong's third feature film, and the last one he directed before his stint as South Korea's Minister of Culture.
The film's plot tells about the difficult romance between a man who was just released from jail after a two and a half year sentence for involuntary manslaughter and a woman who suffers from cerebral palsy.
Among the most important were the special director's prize given to Lee Chang-dong at the Venice Film Festival and the Marcello Mastroianni award for best "first time" actress given to Moon So-ri at the same event.

 ISFF 2002 - Film is.
One thing is certain, there is something in film, in moving images, which is different to the related arts, something quite unique to film.
It is precisely because of its love of the physical that film is radically metaphysical - recording what is and organising that into the way it could be.
Gustav Deutsch’s attempt to approach and consider the nature of film - conducted without words - provides the basis for discussion of the question with Deutsch himself and several other prestigious festival participants - well, as much as the language of images can indeed be expressed and considered verbally.

 New York Film Festival 2002
French films, and films from Francophone countries made either by the French themselves or by a local director steeped in the French filmmaking tradition, seem to dominate the program in most years.
While both films are being pulled into the mainstream glitz and glamour by the media insisting that Jack Nicholson, the star of About Schmidt, and Sandler are up for Oscar contention, it will be interesting to see how these hugely popular actors manage on a smaller canvas and with innovative directors.
The films were selected by Richard Pena, Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the film critics John Anderson (Newsday), Manohla Dargis (Los Angeles Times), and Dave Kehr (New York Times), and Kent Jones, associate programmer at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

 Amazon.com: Halliwell's Film and Video Guide 2002 (Hallowell's Film & Video Guide, 2002): Books: Leslie Halliwell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Most other film guides, while they purport to rate movies on a scale of 0 to 4 stars, really just use 2.5 to 4 (with ratings of 0 to 2 all meaning "not recommended" -- but who cares whether a film is rated 1 versus 1.5; if it's not recommended, don't bother).
And another refreshing aspect is that relatively few films get the highest rating of 4-stars, unlike some critics who give 4-stars to half the films they see, making the rating meaningless.
Overall, the guide is helpful, especially for the older films, and provides detailed content with regard to the stars, directors, etc. I give it 2 and a half stars for those details but think it is a waste of money if you are trying to figure out what a particular movie is about.

 Sundance Film Festival 2002 | PopMatters Film Feature
What thrust it to the forefront of the film world was the increasingly organized and respected independent film industry, and, of course, the independent filmmakers themselves, who increasingly secured funding for their films outside of Hollywood and came to consider Sundance a non-Hollywood venue for first screenings.
Immediate word out of the 2002 Festival is that business was up and quality was down, which was more or less the opposite of pre-Fest predictions.
Whereas the U.S. films, in and out of competition, seemed to be too personal, too political, or too rehashed, almost every foreign film this reviewer saw balanced emotion, politics, and innovation with the most important thing of all: brilliant stories.

 Tribeca Film Festival (2002)
Of course, documentaries don't sell like feature films, but some of the people who might have tried out a different sort of film were probably caught up in the hype of back to back Hugh Grant, Sandra Bullock, Al Pacino, Jodie Foster and Star Wars premieres.
