    Skillfully straddles an intriguing line between reality and fiction.

    It's not always an easy movie to watch, but its characters are unforgettable.

    So deliciously absorbing and well done.

    The most remarkable aspect of Charles Ferguson's lacerating documentary about the U.S. invasion of Iraq is that the film contains virtually no new information, and yet its message is as compelling as if we were hearing it for the first time.

    Tom Hooper's terrific, Oscar-worthy film is not merely a spot-on period piece; it's also a heartfelt study in the shadings of courage, a film about duty and friendship that's often warmly funny and sometimes painful to watch.

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is the anti-Bourne of espionage movies, a deliberate, cerebral, grim and utterly absorbing film that makes covert operations appear as unsexy as the Bourne films made them seem fast-paced and thrilling.

    The interpretation is so painstaking and moving that almost every moment delivers a shuddering jolt to the head and the heart.

    It's a powerful argument for optimism.

    The result is this infectious documentary, which combines some inspired musical performances with Chappelle's perpetually hilarious commentary.

    Vibrant and intriguing, a fine adaptation despite the slight departures from its source, with warm cinematography that captures the feel of '50s Saigon and two performances worthy of Oscar attention.

    If you found "Crouching Tiger" a stunning bore, you probably won't fall under Hero's spell. But the rest of us, well, we'll be more than happy to savor every moment of its strange, ravishing beauty.

    A nuanced study in obsession, dedication, manipulation, ethics and how the all-American need to be the best at something -- anything -- can shape a life.

    Makes a compelling argument for women's rights without ever succumbing to preachiness.

    The Deep Blue Sea is a suffocating movie, and it's meant to be.

    The Constant Gardener is difficult to watch, literally. Meirelles' lens leaps and jitters too much, as if it's anxious it might be bludgeoned to death, too.

    This Pride & Prejudice isn't minutely faithful to the book -- and for good reason -- but it is authentic where it counts: to the confused, wounded, eager hearts of its lovers.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Connie Ogle
    A rarity, a film that preserves the depth and integrity of its source while bringing the story to life in an indelible way.

    A Hijacking is not quite as exciting as it should be, but its realistic examination of grit and folly are still more intriguing than swaggering action movie heroics.
    • 82 Metascore

    Uproariously funny.

    Late Marriage's stiffness is unlikely to demonstrate the emotional clout to sweep U.S. viewers off their feet.
    • 81 Metascore

    More of a warm breeze than a great gust, but its simple, smart pleasures carry the force of a hurricane.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Despite its humble nature, the film is downright uplifting without being vulgar, flashy or embarrassing.

    McGregor hasn't been this appealing or vulnerable in ages, and in both of the film's love stories, he exemplifies Mills' message.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Connie Ogle
    A well-acted, well-crafted but excruciatingly tepid romantic film about a subject that will attract poetry lovers and yet test even their considerable patience.
    • 81 Metascore

    Basically a one-joke movie, and they take their sweet time -- too much of it, actually -- getting to the good stuff. But what excellent laughs they provide in the end.

    The film actually improves on Cunningham's novel, thanks to gorgeous cinematography, a deft script by playwright David Hare, a mournful, melodious but never intrusive score by Philip Glass and a superb cast that brings the delicately formed characters to full, raging, sorrowful life.

    It's a testament to the power of the story -- and this engaging adaptation -- that leaving Hogwarts is tough anyway.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Too slight to bear up under the weight of the final melodrama, and the film ends too abruptly, as if MacLachlan just ran out of things to write. Still, this visit to the old homestead is worthwhile, if only to meet its unflappable, charismatic women.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Connie Ogle
    A script that deftly fleshes out characters and mimics reality shockingly well.
    • 79 Metascore

    There is magic here, enough to make Whale Rider worthy of the audience-choice awards it has earned at film festivals worldwide.
