    A surprising, puzzling and in many ways brilliant work.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    An elegantly crafted entertainment, balanced between the psychological and the supernatural, that gets extra credit for not relying on computer effects.

    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Offers an exquisite tour of the twilight zone between high school and the so-called real world, as well as between bohemian subculture and the even stranger culture of America at large.

    Stop Making Sense is so beautifully choreographed that in some ways it's more like theater than a rock show. [Review of re-release]

    Masterfully paced and constructed, and the performances are memorable.

    It's an electrifying, suspenseful film, full of street-level political drama.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a tremendous experience, whatever it is; the kind of thing supposed art-movie audiences used to tolerate and pretty much don't anymore.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A compact near-masterpiece that combines a slow-motion romantic comedy with a docudrama-style portrait of a remote, nomadic culture as it is gradually eroded by the tides of the 21st century.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A highly unusual combination of craft, emotion and integrity.

    Unmistaken Child stands above most others in offering us an intimate look at Tibetan Buddhism in action, with no external commentary or narration.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's both a supremely controlled exercise in form and tone and an intriguing exploration of the ways new technology intersects with age-old questions of dominance, control and individuality, particularly in the school setting.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A remarkable accomplishment, a swirling, choral sea of humanity that forces us to confront that a man who does terrible things can also be a loving father who gives his infant daughter a bath.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Well, if you care about movies, I'm telling you to carve out time for Vincere, a strange and powerful blend of historical fact and dreamlike imagination that captures both the charisma and the murderous madness of the young Benito Mussolini.

    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Burns has accomplished something both remarkable and reassuring. Remarkable because this is a compelling film, blending astonishing historical images with long-winded talking-head interviews, in vintage Burnsian style, and reassuring for almost the same reason.

    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Junger and Hetherington take our conflicted ideas about war and its let's-make-a-man-out-of-you purpose and throw them in our faces, in a way "Hurt Locker" never does.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Coffin and Renaud's execution is fresh, sincere, often lovely and a great deal of fun -- and in this kind of movie, and this kind of movie summer, execution is everything.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    The first Holocaust movie that's actually about another Holocaust movie, and in some peculiar way it brings us closer to the terror and tragedy of the original event.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a fascinating film, full of drama, intrigue, tragedy and righteous indignation, but maybe its greatest accomplishment is to make you feel the death of one young man -- a truly independent thinker who hewed his own way through the world, in the finest American tradition -- as a great loss.

    All I can say about Timberlake's performance as the thoroughly odious, desperately seductive, textbook-case metrosexual Parker is that he brings so much reptilian fun that he unbalances the movie, almost fatally.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    This is a solid, spellbinding drama based closely on real history, which along the way offers a not-so-subtle commentary on the diverse, immigrant-rich society of contemporary France.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    An imaginative and largely intact retelling of this gory, troubling, uniquely sweet and uniquely dark vampire tale.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    An intimate, gorgeous and wrenching portrait of a working-class marriage in what may be a state of terminal decay.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a warm, richly funny and highly enjoyable human story that takes an intriguing sideways glance at a crucial period in 20th-century history.
    • 60 Metascore

    The good news is that Alfredson finds his footing in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest and delivers a rousing, grueling, almost operatically scaled finale to the series.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A stylish and muscular thriller with some nifty twists and turns, a wicked sense of humor, several terrific performances and not one or even two but three of the best car chases in recent action-flick history.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Applause may present as gritty European realism, but the struggle inside Thea is almost theological in scale, and worthy of Milton or Kierkegaard.
    • 83 Metascore

    Bruno Dumont's Hadewijch is one of two small-release art films this season that deliver nuanced and fascinating portraits of faith.
