    The story is just as funny and touching. The only problem is the inevitable one: The freshness -- the novel delight -- is a little faded now.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Indeed heartwarming, though not simplemindedly so.

    Wong weaves a spell that no other director could create.

    The Wachowskis still hold the current franchise on intellectually engaging action films. It's not like I won't be heading back for a second (or even third) look.

    His most thoroughly surreal work since Eraserhead, this two-hour-plus fever dream is more of one piece than Fire Walk with Me and less desperate and jokey than Wild at Heart.

    The plot may be nothing, but the film is something indeed.
    • 76 Metascore

    This is a dark, often funny walk through Ingmar Bergman turf.

    What about Ronny Yu's 1992 masterpiece "The Bride With White Hair," of which Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a decent facsimile?
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Its tone has elements of Jim Jarmusch and the Coen brothers but without Jarmusch's self-conscious artiness or the Coens' hip snottiness.
    • 73 Metascore

    Eastwood provides more than an hour of easygoing fun, followed by 45 minutes of action and suspense.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Zhang deftly and quickly draws a half-dozen supporting characters, and his pacing never flags.

    Both Fellini and Woody Allen have remarked that casting is 90 percent of directing--and Citizen Ruth bears witness to that notion. While this is primarily Dern's show, the casting is perfect all around.

    At first glance, Schizopolis may seem like no more than a grab-bag of tricks and gimmicks, but repeat viewings reveal a more coherent pattern.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Stylish, but definitely not for the squeamish
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    The film's demands may be too perplexing.
    • 66 Metascore

    Solidly entertaining little film.

    If the performances are the prime reason the film is as engaging as it is, it must also be said that Majidi's visual style seems far more sophisticated than in "Children of Heaven."

    O'Connor as Fanny is irresistibly appealing.

    Despite some savvy camera movement, the production values obviously can't match American action films made for a hundred times the budget. Still, Hatamikia has put together a gripping drama that balances visceral suspense and interesting ideas.

    It's hard not to warm to a film that features William Shatner (playing himself) looking at De Niro's character and complaining about what a lousy actor he is.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Eureka is, quite extraordinarily, never dull.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    The repetitious structure begins to grow wearing about two-thirds through, but the conclusion has an emotional wallop that justifies the wait.
    • 65 Metascore

    The performance itself (which aired on PBS and is available on DVD) apparently went perfectly; given the potential pitfalls that Miller documents, it's some kind of miracle.

    At 75, Aranda can still make his actors sizzle on the screen as well as he did 10 years ago in "Lovers." The explicitly hot bits here may be few and far between, but what there is of them is choice.

    Shot in stylish black and white, with a memorably low-key performance from Duchesne, Bob le Flambeur is definitely worth checking out on the big screen in a fresh print.

    Varda, still pixieish in her early 70s, is having fun here.

    This is not Tsui's best film by a substantial margin, but it's immense fun.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Scrappy, sappy, and appealing.

    It's a strange, entertaining little film that derives its weird tension from a blend of comic and serious tones.

    It's unlikely that anyone will be bored. But it's just as unlikely that anyone will be swept off his feet either.
