    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.

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

    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 rarity, a film that preserves the depth and integrity of its source while bringing the story to life in an indelible way.

    More of a warm breeze than a great gust, but its simple, smart pleasures carry the force of a hurricane.

    McGregor hasn't been this appealing or vulnerable in ages, and in both of the film's love stories, he exemplifies Mills' message.

    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Connie Ogle
    A script that deftly fleshes out characters and mimics reality shockingly well.

    Coriolanus is not by any stretch a hero, and yet Fiennes makes him magnetic, a warrior you can't look away from even when you might want to.

    Life of Pi works seamlessly on two levels. With grace, imagination and stunning visual acuity, it explores Martel's twin themes of faith and the power of storytelling. It's also a thrilling action adventure.

    • 88 Connie Ogle
    If only more romantic comedies played out as charmingly and perceptively as this one.

    The cast is uniformly spectacular, infusing the characters with nuance and complexity.

    Sensational documentary.

    The new version is a glorious, thrilling throwback that never sacrifices its solid roots in the western genre despite a sharp modern update that actually improves on the original.

    First and foremost, Iris is a magnificent story about the enduring bond between two eccentric, astounding souls who somehow managed to find each other and hold on for dear life.

    A film of this sort demands superb, seemingly effortless acting, and Holofcener gets it at every turn.

    Despite its scary warnings, the film ends on an upbeat note, unless of course you happen to be Hillary Clinton's campaign manager.

    Once you're among them, the Tenenbaums -- and Anderson -- cast quite a spell.

    This delightfully twisted story about a boy and his (dead) dog showcases precisely what Burton excels at: blending the macabre and the heartfelt in a perfect, if oddball, union.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Connie Ogle
    A rousing and mesmerizing documentary.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Connie Ogle
    Clearly an important film, if only for such disheartening reminders that a McDonald's salad with ranch dressing has more calories than a Big Mac or that Miami is the 15th fattest city in the country (Houston is No. 1).
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Connie Ogle
    Hilarious and imaginatively crude with a surprising sweet and subtle aftertaste that prevents it from flopping, limp and brainless, into the sugary abyss of romantic predictability.

    Dench and Blanchett will likely pick up Oscar nominations; no one could improve on either performance.

    It showcases one of Whedon's greatest strengths: his ability to take previously disrespected genres - in this case the slasher film - and turn them inside-out and upside-down and every which way but loose.

    50/50 is crude and funny, and it demands that you laugh. And you will.
    • 68 Metascore

    Awe-inspiring and harrowing, vile and beautiful, as wild and mesmerizing as the Mexican jungle in which it is filmed and one of the most relentlessly thrilling films of the year.

    At the film's uplifting conclusion, when a stilled voice finally makes itself heard, you can unmistakably feel your heart lift, as if it had grown tiny wings. Camp reminds you that once you believed it would always soar, just like that.
