    A film that's as much a character study as it is a crime drama. At the heart of it is Caine's hauntingly memorable performance.

    The Beaver isn't a perfect film, but it's challenging and original.
    • 67 Metascore

    Bernal (“Y Tu Mama Tambien”), an actor of Mexican heritage, brings to the role a charismatic resolve. It’s an impressive and impassioned performance.

    Alma is at once a charmer and a contrarian, and Bergsholm achieves that balance with seeming effortlessness. At times, she's more than a bit reminiscent of the young Jodie Foster.

    As biopics go, The Iron Lady is among the more intriguing ones.
    • 54 Metascore

    Smith turns in a subtly layered performance that suggests the hurt behind Kathy's callousness. And O'Donnell gets to the heart of a man who realizes too late that he's made unfortunate choices.

    Egoyan doesn't flinch from exploring the dark side of curiosity. That includes dealing with sexuality in a way that might make some moviegoers uncomfortable.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    A bit slow to get started, and it's nowhere near as funny as "The Hangover." But it'll make you smile.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Perhaps best appreciated as a character study -- about a character some moviegoers might prefer to avoid. Still, it's a smart, funny film that flirts with the edge.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Best appreciated as an exercise in style. Based on Martin Booth's novel "A Very Private Gentleman," the film establishes and sustains a mood of suspense, but Corbijn seems only minimally interested in conventional thrills.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    As a tale of a boy, his dog and their battles with bad guys, it's a treasure.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Washington is surprisingly persuasive as a world-weary blade-wielder, and Oldman makes the most of a not particularly interesting villain. But the film's breakout star may be Kunis, who brings to Solara a blend of sassiness and sexiness that's reminiscent of Michelle Pfeiffer.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    This isn't just another crime story, and it would be misleading to suggest that it has anything to do with stylish gunplay, exhilarating car chases or brutal fistfights.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Pleasant, well-acted but somewhat overlong, The Way was written and directed by Estevez, who's perhaps best known for his acting career ("The Breakfast Club").
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    The Debt eventually settles into a predictable groove that slightly undercuts its impact. Still, it's a film of ambition and substance.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Lacks the urgency of "Who Killed the Electric Car?" But Paine's thorough knowledge of his subject, and engaging way with an interview, make the follow-up film a fun ride.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    The been-there, done-that nature of the plot doesn't take away from the undeniable sweetness found in Just Wright.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    It's simply an opportunity to spend time with characters who may lack depth but are fun to watch.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    The acting is first-rate. Gosling masterfully fills in Luke’s motivational blanks, and Cooper nicely handles Avery’s evolution from idealist to manipulator.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    The Well-Digger's Daughter is perhaps a bit too sentimental. But the performances are so heartfelt that its occasional excesses are easily forgiven. In a movie summer too often obsessed with things that go boom, this film is all about romance.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Doesn't rise to classic status, but it's an intriguing mood piece.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Superbly acted, and a return to form for Tavernier, who guided jazz legend Dexter Gordon to an Oscar nomination for "'Round Midnight" (1986).
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    To the Wonder teeters between experimentation and incoherence. Does it deserve to be seen? Absolutely. Just be aware of what you’re getting into.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    $9.99 may not be entirely successful from a dramatic perspective, and it certainly offers little enlightenment about the meaning of life. But the film is so intriguing in other ways that it's definitely worth a look.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    The Big Picture ends perhaps a bit too ambiguously, but there's something refreshing about its faith in the moviegoer's intelligence.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Isn't as memorable or provocative as it might have been. But it's an engaging love story that should appeal to moviegoers with a flair for the offbeat.

    Green Zone can't make up its mind whether it's "The Bourne Insurrection" or "Hurt Locker: The Prequel."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    What's lacking is a galvanizing performance comparable to that of the Oscar-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno in "Maria Full of Grace." Still, The Forgiveness of Blood is a memorable portrait of a society and the demands it makes on those caught up in it.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Stölzl blends romance and melancholy in fine style.
    • 56 Metascore

    Although their latest film is not without a certain charm, it quickly wears out its welcome.
