    Superb.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    The nagging desire to help these people underscores the involvement of the audience in this superbly told story. You can almost taste the saltwater, and the fear.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    Payne's little marvel.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    A masterful portrait of the seasons of a life.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    A heartbreaking, powerful drama.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    The film, winsome and tragic at once and finely attuned to the rhythms of childhood, always seems quite close to real life.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    Remarkably fresh and inventive.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    Compelling.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    Bright Leaves' takes on a sizable foe -- in this case, big tobacco -- but with such grace and wit that his message never seems medicinal.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    A superb film.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Carla Meyer
    The concept is high, the humor lowbrow and the joy of experimentation evident in every frame of this wonderful picture.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Hyper-violent yet emotionally powerful.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Enlivens the classic premise of innocent-in-the-city by moving its archetypal characters in unexpected directions.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Tilda Swinton's rich, compelling performance is reason enough to see this uneven picture, which devolves from a riveting romantic triangle to a morality tale without a moral center.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    A one-woman show.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    The film doesn't always work, but it captures the buzz of moviemaking, and that's infectious.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Absurdity and poignancy merge in the carefully observed Czech film Up and Down.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Offers a thrilling, informative history of a sport-subculture.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Delightful.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Can be enjoyed if you don't mind a little manipulation.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Succeeds anyway, by putting a poignant human face on the struggle for equal rights.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Self-indulgent and admirable.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Saw
    The slasher scenes, though relatively few, are amazingly evocative for such a low-budget movie.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    A snapshot of the festival, one that radiates good cheer and offers moments of true, godly goodness.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Delivers laughs most of the way through.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Not as profound as it is pretty, Hero nevertheless gives us something to ponder beyond Zhang's feat in mounting such a magnificent production.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    An intriguing brain-teaser.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Intoxicating and flawed.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    The visual and emotional hues are darker [than previous Pixar films], and the focus rests more on middle age than coming of age. The adventures of a family of superheroes are likely to thrill and amuse children, but the film's more grown-up themes might go over their heads.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Carla Meyer
    Visually accomplished and loads of fun.
