    Sobering and wildly entertaining.

    This delicious adventure of crude betrayal and elegant revenge is yummy even when reheated by director Kevin Reynolds.

    While the impulse for his concert may have been confession and atonement, the cumulative effect is one of a guy struggling mightily to reconcile his divided self.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    As efficient and zippy as its subject.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    It's half hilarious, half serious; all poignant.

    First and last, Appaloosa is the slow-but-sure story of the friendship between Virgil and Everett, one a man of action surprised by emotion, the other a man of emotion surprised by action.

    Israeli filmmaker Eran Riklis' Lemon Tree is a lively deadpan comedy which, like his prior film "The Syrian Bride," satirizes Israel's bureaucrats while remaining sympathetic to citizens who live within and adjacent to Israel's disputed borders.

    In the end, Bellocchio suggests in this spiritual thriller that perhaps faith is the dream from which we do not awaken.

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

    As always, Freeman is a one-man charm offensive.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A naughtily funny, skin-deep satire.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Here, love and violence are random, everyone's a fool for love, and tomfoolery often has a shocking twist. And every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

    The resulting drama is more deeply felt than it is deep. But I can't think of another film so frankly dealing with what we expect from friendship, so tenderly showing how friends can fail in one area, yet be there in another.

    Ramsay's child actors are nonprofessionals who can only express what they feel — which gives her film an unusual degree of emotional authenticity.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 56 Metascore

    The overall tone of the film is sunny, with Ramona and Beezus resiliently turning life's lemons into lemonade.
    • 70 Metascore

    For a movie loaded with ear-scorching profanity, oceans of booze, and illegal drugs enough to keep all of Cedar Rapids in high spirits for a month, there is something fundamentally decent about the film.

    In its first half, Honeydripper trickles. In its second, it really flows.
    • 68 Metascore

    While the film grows increasingly preposterous in its final act, the enigmatic performances of Youn and Jeon carry the day.

    Like the Jerry Seinfeld documentary "Comedian," Conan offers a glimpse of the host's restlessness and creative process.

    A gripping French-Algerian coproduction that makes Algeria's epic struggle for independence from France look like a gangster movie.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Startlingly original film.

    During its two hours-plus running time, Field's movie veers from dark comedy to melodrama, not always gracefully. But tonal inconsistencies don't blunt the keenness of its satire, so sharp that I walked out with emotional razor burn.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    It's indescribable fun.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Holds the audience captive and unusually vulnerable to psycho- and viscero-terror.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Encourages viewers to think outside the big box of super stores such as Wal-Mart.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    It's an action movie that's also an intellectual-action flick.

    Sparkle is a solid entertainment with a winning debut by Jordin Sparks in the title role.
    • 67 Metascore

    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.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Its portrait of an artist hungry for experience is as timely today as when it was written.

    The scenery is majestic, the goats adorable, the characters alternately gruff and tender. Like the best storytellers, Carion delays vital information about his characters that makes their dynamic increasingly interesting.
