    "Shadows" is an 88-minute valentine to cinema, a reminder of why we continue returning to the multiplex, and an abiding faith in the power of film to transport us to faraway places.

    "Shadows'' is a deeply heartfelt, if scattered, effort that plays like an Oscar-night clip show with a mission.

    it's interesting to hear what kind of films are important to Rob Reiner or Wayne Wang but, frankly, we've seen more insightful, emotional responses in any AFI TV special
