    The result is visually inventive, narratively edgy, and unlike anything else.

    In Yoo Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg, Kempner gives us a balance of artist and alter ego, introducing us to a woman we'd like to know even better.

    Though his film is a tad choppy and a lot chatty, Hindman elicits sympathetic performances from leads who demonstrate a deep understanding of movie physics.

    The late John Hughes would have liked Bandslam, an upbeat high school musical that plays like a garage-band cover of "The Breakfast Club."
    • 70 Metascore

    With varying degrees of success, the filmmaker gets each musician to talk about the personal and musical roots that blossomed into his technique.

    Lee distills the flavor of this transforming event and hints at how it transformed some who were there. His movie is a contact high.

    Compulsively entertaining documentary.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Unsettling, intelligent, and way-out-there.

    With mixed results, Moore singles out those who profit from the misery of American workers.

    Shulman photographed buildings as if they were movie stars: He found their best angles and immortalized them.

    The kung fu sequences, although enjoyable, probably would not make the Jackie Chan Top 10. However, Chan's acting is his most affecting since the 1993 policer "Crime Story."

    Jon Amiel's moody, and strangely moving, vignette of the naturalist is something else entirely. It is more about Darwin, father and husband, than Darwin the scientist.

    Despite its title, The Exploding Girl is an oddly tranquil experience.
    • 53 Metascore

    If there were truth-in-titling, Burton's movie rightly would be called "Alice in Narnia: With Stops at Disneyland, the Shire, Rohan, Naboo, and Oz."

    A pleasant taste of Roman life.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Director Jean-Pierre Denis doesn't explore psychological motives, which are, finally, unknowable. What he accomplishes in his chilling, unnerving film is a double portrait of two young women whose lives were as claustrophic, suffocating and chilly as the attics to which they were inevitably consigned.

    Ranging in age from 30 to 96, the Berlevag men clearly enjoy being on camera and are unusually candid about their various pasts as Casanovas and hashish addicts.

    I don't think that a woman behind the camera necessarily affects the tenor of what is on screen, but never before have I seen a men-of-war film more notable for its psychology than its spectacle.

    What's frustrating for the viewer who wants to support the Jamaican economy is that "Life and Debt" does not suggest how Jamaica-lovers can help the island's citizens.

    A clever feature-length cartoon just as entertaining as the hit Nickelodeon series on which it is based.
    • 77 Metascore

    It is a difficult and demanding movie, one that rewards the persevering moviegoer just as Pollock's difficult and demanding paintings ultimately reward the steadfast.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A coming-of-age film that has the jaunty mood and egg-cream flavor of a Philip Roth memoir.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Fugard’s classic minimalist drama comes eloquently to film.

    If the heart of the film is Hartford, who late in his struggle with cancer conveys the luminous colors of a man at his twilight, its soul is Welch.

    Flavorful and fun. "Muy sabroso y divertido," as Martin might say.

    A snappily fun Mantrap Movie, as films about husband-hunting gals are known, is that rare hybrid of romantic comedy and Super Bowl.

    Touching historical fantasy.

    Where so many Holocaust documentaries remember the past and preach not to repeat it, Shanghai Ghetto remembers the past and teaches the relativity of experience.

    Serves up a dramatic comedy piquant as its title.

    Although respectful of its central subject, Comedian is not worshipful. Rather, it is curious about what in Seinfeld's hard-wiring allows him to maintain his equilibrium.
