    One bad idea can unravel and ruin lives in unimaginably horrific ways.That's the concept underlying the riveting Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, a sharply acted and highly entertaining morality play.

    Invictus, which is Latin for "unconquered," gives the poem several meanings in the context of the film. It also applies to Eastwood, who, as one of America's greatest storytellers, finds enthralling tales and fashions them with finesse and an indomitable spirit.

    Farhadi's latest film is almost hypnotically compelling, spinning an intricate web of predicaments, emotional reactions and resolutions in a domestic drama that leaves the viewer reeling by its conclusion.

    The special effects continue to be masterful, but villains are given a new twist, and Order of the Phoenix is all the more fun because of it.

    It is that rare film that is equal parts entertaining, life-affirming and thought-provoking.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    The laughs -- mostly crude, profane and drug-addled -- are almost non-stop.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    An artful blend of tenderness and sharp, clear-eyed observations. Its characters talk like real people -- who also happen to be smart, appealing and thoughtful.

    Not only a stirring history lesson and an action-packed war film, Glory is also a ferocious statement about enduring discrimination that resounds today.

    Neil Young once said: It's better to burn out than it is to rust. But moviegoers are lucky Anvil didn't take Young's advice. Who knew heavy metal could seem like fine art when it rusts?

    This year's wittiest animated adventure saga.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    A gently funny ensemble comedy that feels less like a movie than a short story.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    It is one of the year's most intriguing dramas, with a quartet of powerful performances.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    Touching, but not cloying, uplifting and hopeful but never sappy and also just plain funny. There is not a false note among the five core performances, nor a false word in Sheridan's script.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    The kind of well-acted, genuine heartwarmer that some people complain Hollywood doesn't bother making anymore. And in this case, Hollywood didn't.

    Though set in the future, Her is a timely, soulful and plausible love story.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    While the film is heart-wrenchingly sad, it also is mordantly funny, uncomfortably prickly and above all, unflinching in its depiction of a believable sibling relationship.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    Both a psychological portrait and an exciting action film.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Claudia Puig
    The film's score and editing brilliantly heighten the film's energy, keeping the audience somewhat off-kilter and unsure where things are headed.
