    An epic docudrama - electric and raw.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    An eco-mentary that's as passionate and persuasive an argument for change as "An Inconvenient Truth."

    Throw bouquets at Marshall, who instead of dissecting it to death, neatly resurrects the Hollywood musical.

    Funny as it is fierce, breathtaking as it is life-affirming.

    The film billed as the first Disney animation to boast an African American "princess" is really about a resourceful bootstrapper in New Orleans, a young woman allergic to the fairy-tale pap spoon-fed to young girls.

    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    The $200 million result is an irresistibly entertaining, if grandiose, saga of doomed love and directorial hubris.

    Disarming and unexpectedly poignant, An Education contrasts the knowledge learned in school with that learned from life.

    It may be the first meditative action movie.

    All in all, this phenomenal film illustrates Alexis de Tocqueville's observation that "The people get the government they deserve." In both meanings of the word, Il Divo is sensational.

    Almodóvar has made a powerfully moving film about men who think they want to lose themselves in their women, then are startled to realize that they're the ones who have been comatose.

    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    An extraordinary work in three movements about the Sasakis, a seemingly ordinary family. In this unpredictable work, the clan implodes, explodes, and glues itself back together.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    The film gracefully telescopes a lot of information in its brief running time.

    Floats before your eyes like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The surprise is that, fitted together, these pieces make a completed picture.

    Director Manoel de Oliveira's minimalist, incomparably moving I'm Going Home ranks with John Huston's "The Dead" as one of the great works by a director at his twilight.

    The mosaic of cases and caseworkers is like a season of "The Wire" distilled into two hours.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Insightful, funny-sad memoir of divorce, intellectual style and emotional rebirth.

    Whatever number it is chronologically on the P&P parade, Wright's film ranks first in verve. Quite simply, it is the essential P&P.

    Moviegoers of a certain age may feel as though they are watching a lost Bertolucci film.

    Zodiac is a reproach both to those dedicated to unscrambling "The Da Vinci Code" and to those hooked on forensic crime shows where all the evidence leads to a tidy conclusion. That Zodiac's manhunt is inconclusive makes it all the more haunting.

    After Clooney, who gives a sterling performance as a tarnished figure, the standout performance belongs to Wilkinson, a geyser of manic eloquence. Also quite fine are Swinton and Sydney Pollack.

    ILYM is the comedy that Rudd lovers have been waiting for since he first charmed us silly in "Clueless." It explores both the dweeby and heartthrobby sides of this guy whose crooked smile fails to mask his social anxiety.

    What's most refreshing about Real Women Have Curves is its unforced comedy-drama and its relaxed, natural-seeming actors.

    Nim is as unforgettable as the treatment of him is unspeakable.
