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

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

    Stylish, but definitely not for the squeamish

    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."

    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.

    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.

    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.
    • 68 Metascore

    It is a moving and solidly entertaining comedy/drama that should bolster director and co-writer Juan José Campanella's reputation in the United States.

    Dominik's stylistic choices are savvy, but what really makes the movie work is Bana's extraordinary performance as Chopper.

    For all its mystery and its stylistic finesse, there is something vaguely plodding about The Sweet Hereafter.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's an interesting, often worthwhile, film, but humor isn't its strongest attribute.
    • 79 Metascore

    Those with an interest in new or singular sorts of film experiences will find What Time Is It There? well worth the time.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Were it not for the gravity of the setting, the movie could just as easily be a comedy -- with everybody play-acting and doors opening and shutting and the repercussions of lies multiplying geometrically -- as a drama.
    • 78 Metascore

    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.

    As the story plows toward its finale, the cultural dislocation problems become worse, until by the end they almost defeat the whole film.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    The movie is not always satisfying as a standard thriller, nor is it always clear; but it's never dull, either, and it displays a sensibility so weird as to be its own recommendation.

    It manages to be sentimental without seeming trashy.

    While there's nothing original in Rush Hour, it runs through its well-worn paces with both wit and excitement.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    The film still delivers the goods, in part because of Eastwood's iconic presence and in part because of Daniels' scene-stealing work in what could have been a hokey role.

    For most people, four hours pushes the outer comfort limits for theatrical viewing. My Voyage to Italy is well worth the time, but bringing along a thermos of espresso isn't a bad idea either.

    The texture is reminiscent of last year's "Suzhou River," but the basic material isn't as rich.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    Filled with sharp observations and interesting, often subtle, bits of visual trickery, much of it evoking the technique of Douglas Sirk's American domestic melodramas. Still, the very simple story seems too simple and the working out of the plot almost arbitrary.

    Will probably please hard-core action fans who have become inured to plot idiocies, but it remains a terrible waste of talent.
