    All we can do is hope that films such as Hotel Rwanda remind us all -- moviegoer and politician -- of the terrible cost of doing nothing.

    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.

    If only more romantic comedies played out as charmingly and perceptively as this one.

    Its flimsy plot can’t quite support all the characters stuffed into the script, and the movie plays out in a weirdly static way that makes it feel improvised and uneven, leaving a few too much time during which nothing funny is happening.

    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.

    Taylor is effective as a woman struggling to take control of her life, but Ambrose's work feels shallow in comparison.

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

    It is always intriguing as it follows the arrest and captivity of Salomon Sorowitsch (the terrific Karl Markovics), one of Germany's leading counterfeiters.

    It's a warm, skillful excavation of what look like ordinary lives, ones that aren't so simple once you dig a little deeper.

    Anyone who understands the subtle shadings of friendship will appreciate Our Song's realistic slice of teen life.

    A sweet reminder of their lost and lively world.

    Filmed around stunning County Sligo on Ireland’s west coast, Calvary is a thoughtful, atmospheric movie despite the awkward parade of suspects and the fact that everyone seems a little too conveniently hostile.

    Dogme films don't have to be bleak to be effective. They can be -- imagine! -- fun. Scherfig may have taken the discipline in an entirely new and welcome direction.

    Mottola softens his approach, and Adventureland turns out to be more like "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist" than a Judd Apatow creation.

    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.

    Once you get past the intriguing fact that although Whip's job puts hundreds of lives into his hands on a daily basis yet he's cavalier about protecting them, the movie doesn't feel much different than any other exploration of addiction.

    A well-intentioned coming-of-age film anchored by two indelible performances but weakened by an overabundance of drama.

    At its core, Susanne Bier's wrenching portrayal of the shifting dynamics within a Danish family is really about survival, about how we cope in the face of shattering grief and what we'll do -- anything, really -- to save ourselves.

    Literature lasts, but sometimes, The Last Station suggests, the ties that bind last, too.

    Me and You and Everyone We Know brings to mind the work of happily downbeat, bad-boy provocateur Todd Solondz (Happiness, Palindromes), but July is more kind to her oddballs, although she displays a disturbing aptitude for perversity that Solondz would applaud.

    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.

    For most U.S. audiences, Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, an Academy Award nominee for best foreign language film, is going to feel more like a history lesson than a movie.

    There's little warmth or depth to the characters who, for the most part, trudge through the film with little wonder at the magical journey they're making.

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

    In the end the film stacks up just this side of twee, as the sort of quirky fare that's passably entertaining without ever offering anything real or remarkable.

    The Invisible Woman offers a compelling glimpse at a life once hidden.

    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.
