    What emerges is an astonishing debut, unlike anything else you'll see this year.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Above all a cracking good yarn that earns its laughter, its wonder and its tears.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Extraordinary.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the most exciting Hollywood action films in years, and the best Vietnam movie since "Apocalypse Now."
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the finest cops-and-robbers thrillers of recent years.
    • 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.

    It's a dark and dazzling spectacle.

    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.

    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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A big movie for the ages, full to the brim with sympathy, imagination and sheer visual delight.

    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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A highly enjoyable failure, a quandary that can't resolve itself.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    I love Jackson's "Rings" saga despite his propensity for whimsical animation whenever he tries to strike a chord of dread or menace.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A surprising, puzzling and in many ways brilliant work.
    • 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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    This bloody celebration finally gives the American Revolution the epic it deserves.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Masterfully paced and constructed, and the performances are memorable.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    One of the most beautiful and endearing nature films you've ever seen, despite being filmed almost entirely within a major metropolis, and a love story that will repeatedly reduce you to tears.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    Although Turtles Can Fly is a lyrical, often lovely film with touches of humor, it's also a remorseless tragedy that doesn't offer its child protagonists any false redemption.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A powerful Czech drama with comic flourishes.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    A nerve-jangling work of visual poetry and ironic juxtaposition, and a powerful human story of a group of brave young Americans.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    I'm not going to tell you this is the best European film of the year, but it's definitely the hottest -- it's the one you want to run out and see as soon as you possibly can.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    This delicious little period piece from Spanish writer-director Pablo Berger is like one of those really expensive chocolates, where you start out expecting a brief sugar buzz and end up surprised by the sophistication and delicacy of the flavor.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    In some ways Shake Hands With the Devil hits harder than either "Hotel Rwanda" or the recent HBO film "Sometimes in April."
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Andrew O'Hehir
    An inexpressibly beautiful and moving film, even though (or because) it seems to be about someone unimportant doing something irrelevant, perhaps something silly, in the face of insurmountable odds and a world that doesn't care.
