    It’s a perfect vehicle for Driver, who endearingly captures the hangdog humility of his character. It’s a portrayal that might encourage more people to write poetry. And as the quirky but cheerful Laura, Farahani is just right.

    A comedy of discomfort -- and one of their (Coen brothers) best, most insightful and most provocative films.

    At its heart, Carol deals with the rules that society imposes on individuals, and the courage necessary to throw those rules out the window.

    Cotillard gets so persuasively inside Sandra’s skin that it’s not at all surprising that this performance has earned her another Oscar nomination. And she does so without resorting to shameless, award-baiting grandstanding.

    Portman is simply brilliant, getting to the essence of Jackie without resorting to a mere impersonation.

    Doctor Strange doesn’t always make sense — but so what? It’s a mind-blowing special-effects extravaganza, and the most exciting comic-book flick since “Deadpool.”

    Fruitvale Station has all the impact of a thoroughly researched, well-argued documentary. But Coogler made the right choice in going with drama.

    Boldly original, The Revenant puts everything else playing at the multiplexes in the shade.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Calvin Wilson
    Ultimately hopeful, but uncompromising in its commitment to exposing a tragic chapter in history.

    Gosling is terrific as the coolly introspective yet disarmingly charming Sebastian. And Stone is deservedly generating Oscar buzz for her portrayal of an artist who can’t quite believe she’ll ever be anything other than a barista.

    • 100 Calvin Wilson
    A film that's at once timely and timeless.

    In a stunning performance, Teller resists the impulse to sugarcoat Andrew’s egocentricity. Simmons is equally impressive, lending Fletcher just enough humanity to render his monstrousness all the more shocking.

    Shot mostly in black and white and imbued with a romanticism that's at once nostalgic and exhilarating, Tetro sneaks up on you. What threatens to be a mere exercise in style proves to be as involving as it is inventive.

    Oyelowo takes full advantage of his close physical resemblance to King, but he wisely avoids mere impersonation, delivering a performance that’s as sensitive as it is spellbinding.

    Don’t be put off by the need to read subtitles. Rarely has a film more eloquently captured the universality of human experience.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 100 Calvin Wilson
    An exhilarating balancing act, at once a science-fiction romp, a paranoid thriller and a philosophical treatise.

    Often, extending a film franchise signifies a lack of imagination. But Creed is a knockout.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Calvin Wilson
    Involves the gradual revelation of the hopes, fears and insecurities of well-observed characters.
    • 70 Metascore

    Working from a script co-written with Christopher Browne, director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) pulls off a fabulous trick of his own: delivering a mainstream entertainment that has, at its heart, a poetic sensibility.

    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Calvin Wilson
    Sophisticated comedies have gone out of fashion, largely because Hollywood finds it easier and more profitable to simply gross out moviegoers. But Please Give has real class -- and for that it deserves our gratitude.

    What Inside Llewyn Davis is all about: the passion, and the pain, of being an artist.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Calvin Wilson
    A cinematic miracle, a film that carves out a vivid space that has nothing to do with wizards or extraterrestrials, but quite a lot to say about the fantastical creatures that roam through the humanity in us all.
