Picks and Pans Review: Critic's Choice

>THE SPANISH PRISONER Absolutely worth catching, and still slowly making its way across the country, is writer-director David Mamet's clever thriller about a naive fellow (Campbell Scott) who's duped in an elaborate con scheme. (PG)

EVER AFTER This revisionist reworking of Cinderella was summer's little romantic comedy that could. If you haven't yet, now is the time to see if the slipper fits. Drew Barrymore positively glows, and Anjelica Huston glowers as her stepmom. (PG-13)


Yes sir, director Steven Spielberg's harrowing World War II drama has parked itself in a permanent spot here in Critic's choice. But that's because it knocks you for an even bigger loop the second time you see it—or the third. With Tom Hanks. (R)
