    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."

    One of the compulsively watchable films this year, second only to "Memento." It's a must-see, except for those with a sensitivity to on-screen mayhem.

    Those with an interest in new or singular sorts of film experiences will find What Time Is It There? well worth the time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Andy Klein
    It's funny, heroic, exaggerated and, most of all, energetic; the film speeds along as though afraid to lose the audience's attention for even a moment.

    The film could be subtitled "Six Characters in Search of an Ending:" When they find that ending, it is gently, delightfully uplifting.

    Eureka is, quite extraordinarily, never dull.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Andy Klein
    An exciting, sharply realized melodramatic film noir, based on Elizabeth Sanxay Holding's novel "The Blank Wall."

    Headey, Skarsgård and Rampling flesh these people out marvelously, bringing them fully to life. It's almost a pity: The more real they become, the less pleasant is the time we spend with them.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    From the start, a comprehensible, if necessarily simplified, sense of an extremely complicated moment in history.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 78 Metascore

    What Malick has fashioned here is less a conventional narrative than an impressionistic mosaic of our common, yet varied experience of life and death, as focused and clarified through the relentless lens of war.

    I found myself roaring at the grotesque way some of the characters talk to their pets, pausing only briefly when I realized that I do precisely the same thing.

    What Nolan does accomplish here that we haven't seen from him before is staging a few horrifyingly effective suspense set pieces -- one of which, in particular, is likely to stay with you for a long time.
    • New Times (L.A.)

    One of the glories of the film is that Ramsay keeps us rigorously to Morvern's point of view without ever being explicit about what's going on in her head.
    • 77 Metascore

    Wisely, Run Lola Run lasts something under 80 minutes; any longer, and it would have been as exhausting and boring as a half-hour Donna Summer track.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    This is a dark, often funny walk through Ingmar Bergman turf.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Makes good use of its actors.

    While Mononoke is often gorgeous to look at and has a far more sophisticated story than most Japanese animated features, it still feels overlong and dramatically unengaging.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Dramatically effective, thanks in large part to Montand's impassioned performance.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Dench is wholly extraordinary in a characterization that is frequently muted, literally and necessarily.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Takes roughly a third of its length to really get going, but, once it does, it's a devilishly clever, engaging piece of work that milks every cent of value from its tiny budget.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    For those with a taste for epics that integrate the historical and the intimate.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Compellingly watchable.

    In the end, Code Unknown is a puzzle with no obvious solution.

    May well stand as his (Chan) final word on true martial arts cinema.

    • 80 Andy Klein
    The entire cast is right on the money, a special word must be said about Seth.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Zhang deftly and quickly draws a half-dozen supporting characters, and his pacing never flags.

    While it's crucial to preserve and make available every bit of available footage of such an earth-shattering event, it must be said that Rosenbaum's film manages to become slack and uninvolving after a while.

    Hilary Birmingham -- makes an impressive feature directorial debut with this rural drama. She gets first-rate performances.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Bigger, Longer & Uncut delivers: It's never less than funny, and at its best, it's truly hysterical.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Andy Klein
    Zemeckis is more interested here in getting us thinking (and feeling) than in telling us what to think.
