    Not only is Bossa Nova a lovely romance, but one can say, as one can about few films, that it is restorative as a vacation.

    It's hard to know whether this is a function of the sympathetic screenplay or of Krieger's sympathetic direction - or both - but Celeste and Jesse are endearing even when they do unsympathetic things.

    Rees tells Alike's story in vignettes that are sometimes slapstick, sometimes heartbreaking, always tender.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    DuVernay, a low-key director sparing in her use of emotion and music, has made an existential drama that is European in its feel.

    It's a testament to Cage's canny performance and Jonze's seamless use of special effects that you believe Charlie and Donald are two entirely different people.

    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Collins and Pacino plumb the depths of acting, of Shakespeare, of the difference between law and justice.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Proves that the most local story is sometimes the most universal, the simplest tale sometimes the most complex.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    A far more trenchant - and funnier - satire of the fame-afflicted than Woody Allen's "Celebrity."
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    First-time filmmaker Kolirin paces his can-we-all-just-get-along? parable as if it were a silent comedy, which for long stretches it is. This movie about musicians has no soundtrack. Its musical moments are few, but potent.

    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    A superb film that begins with death, ends in renewal, and finds almost as much to laugh about as to cry for.

    What gives North Country urgency is that it's about how a man comes to understand that it's bad for him and for his community to deny his daughter privileges and prerogatives he'd grant his son.

    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Macdonald's film brilliantly telescopes the '70s, an era when every physical action had its equal and opposite political reaction.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Corinne's journey begins with an act of blind faith. The movie ends, but you have a palpable sense that the journey does not.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    A dynamic portrait of an artist by an artist, one as wry, audacious and erotically charged as its flamboyant subject.

    For those dazed and dazzled by surf anarchists Noll and Clark, Hamilton comes off as the sport's technocrat, but he boldly goes where no surfer has gone before.

    What begins as Lafcadia's journey into the heart of darkness ends as his pilgrimage into the light. Stunning.

    French movies are not so neatly resolved. In fact, the point of many French movies, such as this provocative one from director Laurent Cantet, is that some problems don't have satisfying solutions - or resolutions.

    Until a final conflict that more resembles a monster-truck jam than a superhero showdown, Iron Man is solid gold.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Wondrously emotional film, one that sneakily dismantles your defenses and purges grief you didn't realize you had.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    It is not to everyone's taste. But if you like the lush film operas of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Douglas Sirk, or Luchino Visconti, this one's for you.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    The script by Andrea Berloff is stunning in its simplicity and aching details.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Cholodenko takes us inside a bohemian hive where everyone buzzes around the Queen Bee. McDormand is superb. Likewise Bale and Nivola.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    A movie of absurdist humor, brutal realism and dementia.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    This is more than a movie: It's Almodovar's design for living.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    A gut-punch of a drama.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Pure, undiluted joy.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Urgent and stunning movie.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Almereyda's smart, streamlined adaptation is full of such neat little ironies.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    Not since Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" and Malick's own "Days of Heaven" has a movie been both so breathtakingly beautiful and so narratively abstract.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Carrie Rickey
    An epic docudrama - electric and raw.
