    • 83 Metascore

    A film of haunting eloquence and justifiable fury.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    In this episodic film with a soupcon of "Sex and the City" (just as the Merchant Ivory Slaves of New York presaged the HBO hit), cross-cultural misunderstanding, not character, is the point.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A tiny jewel of a film.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Irreverent, provocative and provoking.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Eloquently adapted from the collection of A.M. Homes stories of the same title, Troche's film derives its voltage from the way it burrows to find that the connections within -- and among -- families are very much alive.

    Some numbers: Hawn and Sarandon (both 56) are arguably the first women in American popular culture to be pushing 60 and sexy. Hard to believe, but when Joan Crawford and Bette Davis were comparable ages (59 and 54), they were the frightening gargoyles of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"

    Paradoxically, the closer Mendes gets to his characters, the more remote Perdition becomes. One wishes that his film had as much heart as it does art.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Makes for the most thrilling action movie of the year.

    Robert Evans has been variously described as the Hugh Hefner of Hollywood, a Tinseltown Gatsby, the Lancelot of the backlot.

    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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Seething, searing tragedy of unmannerliness.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Jackson's superior sequel to last year's first installment in his Rings cycle - resurrects the beloved Gandalf (majestic Ian McKellen) and rejuvenates the audience, too.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Exhilarating, breathless, must-see chronicle of the skateboarder revolution and evolution.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Smart, curious and brave.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Not only is there no magnetism between Fiennes and Lopez, he's a lead balloon and she's helium-filled. Happily, their odd chemistry doesn't sink this fairy tale.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Buoyed by the appealing Hart and Grenier.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Mostly this elegant little film is a case study in the inconsistency of thoughts and feelings. Here, moralists break commandments, intellectuals act emotionally, and cynics have moments of idealism.

    Should you take the kids? Boys 8 to 11 are the target audience for this gross-out film. A better question might be, should they take the parents?
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    A clever feature-length cartoon just as entertaining as the hit Nickelodeon series on which it is based.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Few American directors drive this wedge between mind and gut as masterfully as Michael Mann.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    On a Paris rooftop about an hour into this 2-hour film, the tone shifts and the atmosphere lightens into giddy farce.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Touching historical fantasy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    It's a rare window on an artistic collaboration.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Crowe is so good on mood and milieu that when Elton John's bubblegum ballad "Tiny Dancer" swells on the soundtrack, in this context it sounds like a hymn.

    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.

    Pazira, whose sapphire eyes blaze through the lattice of her slate-gray burqa, isn't much of an actress, as her singsong narration attests. But when not speaking, she has a commanding presence and is an effective witness to the ravages of war.

    Until its conventional third act, Elysian Fields takes surprising turns. Garcia, Coburn and particularly Jagger surprise throughout.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Riveting and heartstoppingly fine documentary.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Carrie Rickey
    Happy Accidents is romantic perversity in reverse.
