    Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi pursues his exploration of guilt, choice and responsibility in a superbly written, directed and acted drama that commands attention every step of the way.

    Takes the refined work of Iranian helmer Abbas Kiarostami up another notch to ever more metaphoric ground.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Deborah Young
    An acid portrait of contemporary Austria (and by extension, the whole middle class) as unspeakably dull, violent and stupid. The film itself, miraculously, is just the opposite: vibrantly inventive, aesthetically rigorous, sardonic and occasionally quite brilliant.

    Seems destined to go down in film history as a technical tour de force.

    It's hard to walk away unaffected from this heartfelt, well-researched, feature-length documentary.

    10 dazzling and perceptive snapshots of women with which femmes everywhere can identify.

    Scorsese's heartfelt love letter to Italian movies up to 1961.

    In Drug War, Hong Kong genre master Johnnie To gives a superlative lesson on how to give an updated, thoroughly engrossing twist to the classic cops-and-robbers chase.

    A very honest film from a great Japanese artist.
    • 76 Metascore

    Stephen Frears is in full possession of his filmmaking talent in Philomena, one of his most pulled-together dramas in years.
    • 37 Metascore

    In this fast-moving, densely plotted black dramedy, a faux scandal raised by an ambitious web TV editor comes close to destroying a number of lives, offering a masterful panorama on urban, middle class China.

    Refusing to offer easy answers or perspectives, Dormant Beauty is directed in such a way it doesn’t need to take a clear-cut position on the question, because like all the director’s work it has no concern with convincing people of anything, but a great deal of interest in illuminating contemporary Italian society.

    The Look of Silence is perhaps even more riveting for focusing on one man’s personal search for answers as he bravely confronts his brother’s killers.
