  As the crowning achievement in a year that saw him contributing his talents to no fewer than six feature films, Jude Law gives what should be an award-nabbing performance as the roguish title character in a remake of the romantic dramedy "Alfie." A few changes have been made to differentiate this one, co-written and directed by Charles Shyer, from the first. In the 1966 version that marked Michael Caine as a star, Alfie is a charming English womanizer with dreams of success and an even greater desire to get laid and pampered by a parade of lovely "birds." But the original was set in the swinging London of the '60s, and Law's Alfie is a relocated neo-mod Brit in contemporary New York City. Law spends as much time addressing the camera in character, and discussing his ideas and reflections with the audience, as he does interacting with the women he endeavors to shag. It's seductive, bravura stuff. Three of Alfie's willing conquests are played by beauties Marisa Tomei, Jane Krakowski and Sienna Miller, with more sexy glamour provided by Nia Long as the girlfriend of Alfie's best pal Marlon (Omar Epps) and Susan Sarandon as an older woman who is more than a match for any swain. For all of the fluff and tomcat-foolery, this "Alfie" has a serious side: The ladies' man has to reevaluate himself and may eventually learn that actions have consequences. With new songs by Mick Jagger and David Stewart.
