    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Intimate, terrifying and positively riveting documentary.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A work of tremendous passion, daring and delicacy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A distinctive achievement, a World War II movie unlike any other and one of the few films ever to address a topic that makes almost everyone want to look away: What happens to women in wartime.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Dark, sleek, funny and creepily infectious, the genetic-engineering horror-comedy Splice is a dynamic comeback vehicle for Canadian genre director Vincenzo Natali, who made a splash a few years ago with "Cube."

    Of course the films and the books each have to stand on their own, but Grisoni's stripped-down narrative definitely offers advantages, throwing some of the story's archetypal themes into sharper relief.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A gorgeous transcription of medieval decorative art and its themes into a contemporary animated narrative, one that should enthrall children older than 8 or so, along with the adults lucky enough to watch with them.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A sprawling and adventurous tale of teen alienation, might just be the movie that pushes the Japanese new wave out of the film-geek ghetto.

    The thing is, it works. Or at least it works for me. I left the theater convinced that House of Fools is Konchalovsky's best work in almost 20 years (which it is) and that it might be something close to a masterpiece.

    What emerges is an astonishing debut, unlike anything else you'll see this year.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Extraordinary.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Above all a cracking good yarn that earns its laughter, its wonder and its tears.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Soderbergh's film is probably not the equal of either Tarkovsky's 1972 predecessor or the memorably Byzantine prose of Lem's novel, but in the end, almost despite himself, this able craftsman has made a brave and lovely companion piece to both of them. His ending is pure cinema at its most marvelous and moving.

    This movie may not have the highest production values you've ever seen, but it's the work of an artist, one whose view of America, history and the awkwardness of human life is generous and deep.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A masterful accomplishment...teems with its own sense of life, crackles with daring, walks the tightrope between satire and pathos with a rare assuredness.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Turns a hysterical night of African-American humor into the hottest little picture of the summer.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Features an astonishing pair of lead performances and one of this year's most impressive directing debuts. If this movie isn't quite the contempo-Greek tragedy it wants to be, it's still a powerful, unforgettable meditation on fate, cultural collision and the morality of renovating a house that isn't really yours.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    For all its flaws, In the Bedroom is an unusual accomplishment, a serious drama about violence and morality that plays out with a fatalistic intensity somewhere between Greek tragedy and film noir.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a difficult film to follow and at 172 minutes is maybe a half-hour too long. But simply as a sensory experience The Fast Runner is amazing.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the finest cops-and-robbers thrillers of recent years.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the most exciting Hollywood action films in years, and the best Vietnam movie since "Apocalypse Now."
    • 63 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    This bloody celebration finally gives the American Revolution the epic it deserves.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Inevitably a little patchier and less startlingly original than its predecessor -- S2 is an ingenious, often hilarious, movie that does nothing to diminish the well-deserved cult reputation of its director.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A highly enjoyable failure, a quandary that can't resolve itself.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A big movie for the ages, full to the brim with sympathy, imagination and sheer visual delight.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a dark and dazzling spectacle.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Creates such memorable images out of squalid surroundings that I sometimes wondered whether I was being distracted from the devastating stories of these kids by the beautiful cinematography.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 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]
