    • 100 Bob Graham
    This is a transcendent film, deeply committed and beautifully wrought. It will make anyone who sees it look at the world with new eyes.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Bob Graham
    This thriller is so expertly -- and perversely -- poised that audience members may find themselves secretly rooting for the duplicitous Ripley.

    Anybody with a soft spot for fakers, who either identifies with them or just admires their chutzpah, is going to get a kick out of Happy, Texas.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Bob Graham
    Haunting music, the seriousness of the allegations and riveting interviews with Alexander Haig, Christopher Hitchens (whose book inspired the film) and others give "Kissinger" extra drama and urgency.

    Leigh is perfectly cast as the game-pod goddess.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Bob Graham
    Neither a "gay" movie nor a straight one; it is simply a funny one.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 100 Bob Graham
    In the person of Cameron Diaz, Mary is an island of sanity, good-natured humanity and genuine sweetness in an ocean of anarchy. Without her presence, There's Something About Mary would be merely sophomoric and tasteless.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 100 Bob Graham
    Maybe it's no mystery how they did it, considering the aggregate comic talent, but this bunch achieves peaks of sublime nuttiness.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 88 Bob Graham
    Delivers plenty of laughs and succeeds on a level that recent ``SNL'' movies (``It's Pat!'' and ``A Night at the Roxbury'') didn't.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Bob Graham
    The audience, too, will be sorry to see this fleeting, beautifully made French film end.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Bob Graham
    Has a saccharine quality but also offers a memorable performance by famed Spanish actor Fernando Fernan Gomez.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    Totally absorbing even when it, too, strays.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    It is so propulsive so much of the time, it almost looks as if it's going to go the distance. If Washington & Co. don't quite manage to bring it home, the getting there sure is something.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    Goes Hitchcock one better by imagining what it would be like if the master had the advantage of digital technology.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    What makes it interesting is the story that the viewer must put together, of a model who lives her entire life -- or at least what we see of it -- in front of the camera.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    The stuff of high romance, brought off with considerable wit, too. People are going to love it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    This warm, celebratory and very public film is punctuated by sudden and luminous private visualizations.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    This movie can be recommended only to dyed-in-the-wool fans of the genre. Anyone who goes into one of Miike's films must be prepared to be put through the wringer.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    At times, Anderson may be too brilliant for his own good, and there is a risk that viewers will tire of the director's relentlessly prowling camera.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    It's got unpredictable plot twists and unexpected laughs coming out of dark corners. The sharp-edged film also looks terrific.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    It's hardly possible to overstate what a welcome change of pace The Shipping News is for admirers of Kevin Spacey.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    Isn't vicious. It's just cheerfully mocking as it courses the canyons and flatlands of Los Angeles.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    Love and basketball -- if you like either one, here is a movie for you.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    It would be nice to say that Blast From the Past is, but it ain't exactly. Half-blast is more like it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    Audiences will talk about how satisfying this movie is.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    The look of the film is first class, with muted colors but deep textures, the opposite of historical kitsch.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    If it doesn't always come off, enough headlong energy develops to carry it through.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    This movie knows how to entertain.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    It's the kind of unpretentious movie that falls between the cracks, and for a certain kind of audience, the thoughtful kind, it would be a shame to miss.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Bob Graham
    It overcomes some patchiness to turn into a rich emotional experience, ranging in degree from fire to ice.
