    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.

    Though its violence is searing and brutal, the film, about four FBI agents investigating a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia, shows a conscience and a brain, and if it explains things a bit simplistically at times, so much the better.

    Documentary gold, and you will have formed an opinion on the controversy by the time you leave the theater. You may not know art, but you'll know what you like.

    The only real casualty of Lehane's novel is Angie, here reduced to a supporting player who bears no resemblance to the original character, who is every bit as smart and tough and interesting as her boyfriend. It's a regrettable loss in a film that otherwise indicates its first-time director knows what he's doing.

    Despite the fact that the film is not graphic, you won't want to watch Darfur Now over dinner with your family. But you probably should anyway.

    Cusack, of course, is the perfect Anti-Schmaltz. His rapid-fire delivery makes everything he says sound like it's just pouring from his brain to his mouth, so that even the sappiest dialogue is rendered sincere.

    ''Everything got a rhythm, even pulling cotton off the plant,'' a field hand offers helpfully. Like his eager young bluesman when he finally hits the stage, Sayles hits exactly the right notes.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Mostly silly and always frothy, as sugary at times as wedding-cake frosting but tempered with a welcome strain of sour grapes, mostly doled out by the peerless Judy Greer as Jane's cynical, slutty best friend.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Dry humor keeps In Bruges fresh and lively and makes it a whole lot of fun to watch.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    This engaging documentary is briskly funny.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    It is always intriguing as it follows the arrest and captivity of Salomon Sorowitsch (the terrific Karl Markovics), one of Germany's leading counterfeiters.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    The only thing missing from this winsome, madcap throwback set in London on the eve of World War II is an actual Brit in the title role.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    It's terrifically funny and, for a few brief moments, poignant.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Made with an unerring visual dazzle -- its dark corners are shadowy, deep and melancholy, its brilliant seascapes the sparkling embodiment of why we must all find a reason to carry on.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Get Smart turns out to be a much more entertaining movie than its tedious trailers suggest. It's not going to redefine comedy as we know it, but it's amusing and briskly paced, busy with an engaging mix of supporting actors.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    The real hit of the movie is the hilarious Bateman. His low-key humor makes you wish Hancock could have saved Bateman's short-lived sitcom "Arrested Development." Now that would have been heroic.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    A slow-moving but heartfelt film.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Turns out to be a lot less tiresome than it sounds, aided by a wonderfully appealing cast and a strong message.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    It's a funny, even whimsical film about a man who survives tragic times, complete with Nazis, pratfalls and plenty of mugging.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    It turns out to be a satisfying, if occasionally wandering, adventure.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Predictable but amusing. The painfully awkward, stubby Gervais as romantic lead is a funny enough concept, but the actor's ongoing banter with Kinnear is engaging, and their styles mesh entertainingly.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    This film, directed by Curb Your Enthusiasm's Robert Weide, makes an entertaining companion piece to his book.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    It's a powerful argument for optimism.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Not exactly a tour de force, but the film succeeds on the wattage of its stars.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Marley & Me gets so many of the details right, particularly in its final act, when it turns into a five-hanky weeper.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    The film isn't much of a character study; too many of its secondary characters are stereotypes, and it never fully engages our emotions the way "Schindler's List" or "The Pianist" did.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    A lively, funny, imaginative film that should appeal to kids and their pet-loving parents.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Though there's nothing revolutionary about 17 Again, the movie is undeniably enjoyable.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Downey gives a nervy, riveting performance in The Soloist.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Connie Ogle
    Fierce, profane and hilarious comedy.
