    Continuing the late-career renaissance of historically urgent, politically engaged fiction filmmaking that began with 1999's "The Legend of Rita" and 2004's "The Ninth Day" German vet Volker Schloendorff stumbles slightly, but doesn't fall, with Poland-set Solidarity saga Strike.

    • 70 Eddie Cockrell
    A beautifully atmospheric vessel that will seem infinitely deep to some and chafingly dry to others.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Eddie Cockrell

    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Eddie Cockrell
    Part mob-trial thriller, part "dese 'n' dose" extended standup routine, character-rich pic plays like vintage Lumet, mining the grim comedy from life-and-death legal wranglings in the manner of "Dog Day Afternoon," "Prince of the City" and "The Verdict."
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Eddie Cockrell
