    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the most remarkable explorations of recent history ever conducted.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    This is a fine example of British commercial filmmaking at its highest level of craftsmanship.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's an electrifying, suspenseful film, full of street-level political drama.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Almost as exhilarating as it is depressing. Puiu's filmmaking technique is remarkable, and all the more so because it's almost invisible.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a magnificent miniature, a supremely tender work that's full of emotion and even sentimentality.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A haunting and riveting work, unlike anything else you can see at the movies and as such an explicit challenge to the unambitious, anesthetic character of most contemporary cinema. But is it easy, or delightful, or fun? It is not.

    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the best films of the year.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 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
    I can't imagine anyone not being both horrified and fascinated by Stanley Nelson's Jonestown: The Life and Death of People's Temple.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    So truly and exceptionally fine, a spiny and dispassionate little masterpiece of a marriage movie.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Another remarkable chapter in the career of Asia's most important living filmmaker. After "Pan's Labyrinth," this is the movie to see this season.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    The GoodTimes Kid has a whimsy, a passion, a sophistication and, above all, a vigor that's mostly drained out of Amerindie cinema over the last decade or so.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a carefully and almost classically balanced combination of ingredients, blending dirty-faced realism (so much more damning because it judges and condemns no one) with mystical fable of quest and homecoming.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A magical and supernally beautiful meditative drug-trip head-space picture (a full-fledged ZZM, q.v. above) for which all Euro-film masochists should rearrange their schedules. It'll be out on DVD soon, and that's great. But Garrel's films are almost never seen on the big screen, and this one's worth it.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    What feels at first like a quiet, straightforward picture builds into one of the richest and most satisfying of the year so far, in any genre or any language.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Stop Making Sense is so beautifully choreographed that in some ways it's more like theater than a rock show. [Review of re-release]
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    I was thrilled and transported by it. It's a two-hour movie, and I'm only sorry it isn't two or three times as long.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Arias' blend of traditional cell animation and 3-D CGI effects is thoroughly mind-blowing, and the film's visual sensibility is utterly distinctive.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Pitch-perfect social comedy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A wrenching, funny and wise little picture, with a diva-like junior star at its center.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    May well be the most exciting documentary of the year so far. I guess it took a British director, David Sington, to capture the story of the dozen American men who walked on the moon -- the only human beings in our species history yet to visit another celestial body.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's the most original picture by an American director I've seen this year, and also the most delightful.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A dark and mesmerizing immersion into a distinctive world.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's the most ambitious and impressive Coen film in at least a decade, featuring the flat, sun-blasted landscapes of west Texas -- spectacularly shot by cinematographer Roger Deakins -- and an eerily memorable performance by Javier Bardem, in a Ringo Starr haircut.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    What makes the movie memorable is the precision of its tone, its finely calibrated combination of bitterness and warmth. Of course the acting is tremendous, and you'd expect nothing less.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Announces the arrival of a director radically out of step with the dominant conventions of American moviemaking, one who blends a social-realist vision and a passion for cinematic poetry.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's both happy and sad. That's exactly the way to describe Hou's marvelous film as well.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Gibney's immensely funny and sad new motion picture Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson -- the "Dr." was a mail-order divinity degree -- is principally intended to rehabilitate Thompson and introduce his work to a new audience.
