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

    Fans of convoluted narrative in the manner of Christopher Nolan and David Lynch are likely to be intrigued, although Medem has a far stronger streak of sentiment.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    This nearly perfect confection never takes its action more seriously than its comedy.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 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.)

    The film is a masterpiece of nuance and characterization, marred only by an inexplicable, utterly distracting blunder at the very end.
    • 84 Metascore

    On one level, Together is a countercultural soap opera, though played more as bittersweet comedy than as drama.
    • 69 Metascore

    A warning is virtually mandated: No one who's even the least bit squeamish should even think about seeing Audition. But, if you have a taste for the disturbing, it's a trip that will stay with you for some time.

    • 80 Andy Klein
    The plot may be nothing, but the film is something indeed.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Washington creates an indelibly charming and terrifying character whose volatile blend of dedication and horrible expediency keeps us off balance.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Office Space's pleasures don't really depend on plot. It's pretty much what a Dilbert feature should look like.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    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.)
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    Surprisingly manages never to grow boring -- which proves that Rohmer still has a sense of his audience.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    O'Connor as Fanny is irresistibly appealing.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Makes good use of its actors.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    The film's demands may be too perplexing.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    In short, the film is emotional, perhaps even sentimental, but it strenuously avoids the sort of blatant manipulation that marks cheap sentimentality.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's unlikely that anyone will be bored. But it's just as unlikely that anyone will be swept off his feet either.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's a strange, entertaining little film that derives its weird tension from a blend of comic and serious tones.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    For all of the heroine's shockingly "modern" lifestyle choices, the thrust of the film is remarkably old-fashioned. It embraces the notion that you can have only a single great love in a lifetime...and that's if you're lucky.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    A political film in the form of a thriller, rather than a garden-variety potboiler gleefully helping itself to stock political tropes from the genre's grab bag.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's a fast, entertaining ride.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's funny and exciting on enough levels that adults are likely to enjoy it just as much as the rug rats.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Allen produces a lovable, relaxed--although not uproarious--comedy.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Helgeland makes a solid debut as director here, finding a new angle through which to view the Parker character, and doing so without exhausting the possibilities.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Bigger, Longer & Uncut delivers: It's never less than funny, and at its best, it's truly hysterical.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Manages the seemingly impossible task of being very funny indeed and being as dark as anything Wong has ever made. This is an almost painfully bleak comedy that makes you squirm in the manner of “The Out-of-Towners.”

    Fuqua has done an admirable job staging the action scenes, but the script is little more than a thin framework to justify those scenes.
