    As original and risk-taking as its subject, Steve Jobs will make you think differently about an American icon.

    Keaton, who deserved an Oscar for his performance in “Birdman,” brings to Robinson a bracing blend of humor and authority. Ruffalo is the essence of the newsman who just won’t quit, and McAdams is just as effective as his more low-key colleague.

    Macbeth takes liberties with the particulars of the Shakespeare play, but is fascinatingly true to its spirit.

    Working from a self-penned screenplay, Tarantino has come up with one of the wordiest Westerns on record, and even some of his most diehard fans may grimace at the film’s occasionally slow pace. But The Hateful Eight more than compensates through its intriguing characters, ominous atmosphere and palpable suspense.

    With spot-on vocal performances from Thewlis, Leigh and Tom Noonan, the film is nothing less than mesmerizing — and must viewing for serious cinephiles.

    Daringly unsentimental, 45 Years makes a persuasive case that marriage demands not only patience, but guts.

    $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.

    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.

    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.

    Green Zone can't make up its mind whether it's "The Bourne Insurrection" or "Hurt Locker: The Prequel."

    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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    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.
    • 51 Metascore

    The been-there, done-that nature of the plot doesn't take away from the undeniable sweetness found in Just Wright.
    • 64 Metascore

    Unfortunately, Garcia can't quite resist sentimentality, giving us an ending that's a bit too emotionally neat. Still, Mother and Child is a thoughtful and provocative film about the way we live now.
    • 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.

    Stone isn't for everyone. But for all its shortcomings, it is courageously original.
    • 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.
    • 39 Metascore

    Seth Rogen is the Green Hornet. What else do you need to know?
    • 68 Metascore

    Skarsgard, who is perhaps best known for "Good Will Hunting" and "Breaking the Waves," makes the most of his rich role, imbuing Ulrik with a knockabout charm.

    As popcorn entertainment, it's right on schedule.
    • 78 Metascore

    Superbly acted, and a return to form for Tavernier, who guided jazz legend Dexter Gordon to an Oscar nomination for "'Round Midnight" (1986).

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

    It's simply an opportunity to spend time with characters who may lack depth but are fun to watch.
    • 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.

    The Debt eventually settles into a predictable groove that slightly undercuts its impact. Still, it's a film of ambition and substance.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    The Tree might have suffered from too much symbolism if not for writer-director Julie Bertuccelli's deft touch and Gainsbourg's appealing performance.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Calvin Wilson
    Doesn't rise to classic status, but it's an intriguing mood piece.

    This film might easily have settled for mocking religion. Instead, it's a fascinating glimpse into a culture that forces some people to choose between fitting in and opting out.

    Offers an inside look at Iran in all its cultural complexity.
