    More involving and intriguing than any by-the-numbers studio thriller. In large part, it holds our interest because of its stylistic boldness, not despite it.

    Not everything in the film happens according to the traditional, overly familiar blueprint.

    The entire cast is right on the money, a special word must be said about Seth.

    Zhang deftly and quickly draws a half-dozen supporting characters, and his pacing never flags.

    Eastwood provides more than an hour of easygoing fun, followed by 45 minutes of action and suspense.

    Gilroy has brilliantly played to his strengths in Spring Forward. With a story that has no room for big, obviously "cinematic" effects, he concentrates on simple staging, unobtrusive (though often beautifully evocative) visuals, and sheer performance. It's a decision that pays off.

    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.

    For those with a taste for epics that integrate the historical and the intimate.

    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.

    Hilary Birmingham -- makes an impressive feature directorial debut with this rural drama. She gets first-rate performances.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Indeed heartwarming, though not simplemindedly so.

    Taymor moves Titus completely out of time and into all time.

    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    We become so absorbed in the ramifications of the techniques involved that a more challenging plot might have resulted in sensory overload.

    Whatever its faults -- and it has more than a few -- it is unquestionably different. It at least takes a stab at interpolating cerebral ideas into the format of a thriller.

    What about Ronny Yu's 1992 masterpiece "The Bride With White Hair," of which Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a decent facsimile?
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    The fractured structure, which moves from one species to another while following a generally chronological overall arc, can occasionally leave your mind to wandering, but for a film with no plot or characters to focus on it is remarkably gripping.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    The film successfully walks the thin line between slick commercialism and "serious" realism. It is sentimental, but it comes by its sentiment honestly, through well-observed performances by the leads and a keen insight into the quirks of the Japanese middle-class culture.

    • 80 Andy Klein
    Hilarious--a terrific updating of ancient farce conventions for the '90s.
    • 52 Metascore

    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.
    • 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.

    It is engaging, touching, and frequently funny. Maybe because his hero is inarticulate and his heroine is mute, Allen relies far more than usual on physical comedy than on the verbal jokes that are his strongest comic suit.

    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.

    Compellingly watchable.

    Dench is wholly extraordinary in a characterization that is frequently muted, literally and necessarily.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Except for a few slow patches, the movie is compulsively watchable: You keep waiting to see just how sick things are going to get.

    In the end, Code Unknown is a puzzle with no obvious solution.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Dramatically effective, thanks in large part to Montand's impassioned performance.

    I still think the first is the best in the series, but I'm in the minority: Number two has a stronger following among the legions of Hong Kong movie buffs.
