    It's this strategy (however unconscious), and not simply a lack of directing talent, that makes Hedwig so relentlessly assaultive, heavy-handed, and emotionally monochromatic.

    Little more than a cartoon, and not a funny one at that.

    Inept as a thriller, Place Vendôme nevertheless intrigues.
    • 74 Metascore

    Made with intelligence and formal sophistication.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 80 Amy Taubin
    The most progressive, good-hearted studio film of the summer.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Amy Taubin
    A sub-sitcom stretched to an interminable 85 minutes.

    His film is hardly memorable, but it's amusing enough for two hours, and it never panders or cloys.

    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Amy Taubin
    A film of rare tenderness and mystery.

    • 70 Amy Taubin
    So low-key it could be mistaken for a throwaway. But Meadows's understanding of childhood fears and fantasies and the yearning, heartfelt performances he draws from his two young actors should not be underestimated.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Amy Taubin
    A witty, trenchant script, lots of complicated characters, and a few actors who turn human frailty into something nearly sublime.
    • 74 Metascore

    Largely a showcase for Puri, and he rises to the occasion with a performance that bursts from the screen and tears into your heart.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Amy Taubin
    Egoyan, whose sophisticated eye is connected to a brain that seems, for the moment, to have gone dead.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Amy Taubin
    Filled with people who cut Holmes more slack than he deserved.
