    A shaggy, appealing parable involving two lovers, some gorgeous heifers, gentle Maori gangster-golfers, and a dilapidated suitcase packed with used baby shoes, The Price of Milk throws itself onto the magic-realist sword with aplomb.

    Majesty's reissue is a delirious and loony surprise in this season of nattier ape-suits.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 80 Edward Crouse
    Gripping, strangely beautiful, and poignant.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Edward Crouse
    What seems like a nut-on-a-bar-stool rant morphs into a triumphal evocation of the emotional-political bluster of that time.

    • 70 Edward Crouse
    With playful, compelling gore having slowed to a near trickle stateside, Uzumaki demands attention.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Edward Crouse
    One-upping Latino immigrant movies like "Luminarias" and "Tortilla Soup," Washington Heights zeroes in on go-getters (mostly of Dominican lineage) whose ambitions are transformed by familial demands.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Edward Crouse
    Overall the acting is sound, the missteps few, and the murky digicam smash-and-grab sheen entirely apt for the cacophonous Christmas crush.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Edward Crouse
    A grassroots refutation of Discovery Channel/National Geographic dispassion, The Great Dance: A Hunter's Story is hot and sweaty with fetching curves.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Edward Crouse
    Ends up an intricate, becalmed take on a soul adrift.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Edward Crouse
    The best sequences -- auditions in a strip bar and a public bathroom -- still can't compete with that industrial musical called "Pola X."
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Edward Crouse
    Admittedly compulsive in both sex and shutterbuggery, Araki has long lived on the art-porn border, though this doc aims to show him as conversant in flowers, kitties, skies, and neorealist kids' faces as he is with bondage.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Edward Crouse
    Even if actorliness sometimes invades the tired faux-doc form, Unscrewed is, in the end, a likable, wrinkly taint of a movie.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    Manages to gracefully step out of the way of its own referential overload.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    First-time director Ed Solomon, a comedy writer (MIB, both Bill and Ted movies), clots up Levity with symbols -- empty chairs, reflections, winter slush -- and achy, tastefully drawn characters.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    Far from terrible, Leconte's latest movie suggests the work of a slightly hip preacher.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    If "Next Friday" approximated smoking the same old shit, FAN is a manically generous Christmas vaudeville.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    "Check this out, bro," James Cameron says as he returns to the site of the real Titanic, armed with robots, a 3-D Imax camera, and the same colossal hubris that necessitated a call for silence as he accepted his Oscar on behalf of those who perished.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    Chock-full of feisty-frank go-girl sextalk speculating on white guys' underplayable size.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    A free-for-all doc that, like its subject, seems on several planes at once.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Edward Crouse
    Worth sticking around for: the triumphant end credit sequence of each Red Orchestra mug shot morphing into the next one.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 40 Edward Crouse
    A sharp-dumb, jack- and goof-off affair.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Edward Crouse
    Demands high tolerance for low comedy.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Edward Crouse
    Dissolving four characters' lives into the dank smoke of the bitterest of torch songs, Gloomy Sunday fashions an apocryphal, pretty, and somewhat pat biography of the title ballad.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Edward Crouse
    Jacket's shrill, Necco-colored sets and distractingly awful CGI long shots almost mask the movie's real coup: Letscher's physique.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Edward Crouse
    Alternately tense and cheesy.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 20 Edward Crouse
    Mushy and musty itself, A Piece of Eden takes an eternity...this time to cheat and shortcut its way to lesser Frank Capra moments without the gritty touch of, say, a Garry Marshall.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Edward Crouse
    In this visually malnourished film, quirks substitute for character.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Edward Crouse
    Takes its heroine, Lisa (Van Dyck), to the neurotic brink.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 20 Edward Crouse
    A painfully earnest case of generic romance spiced with queerness.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Edward Crouse
    Green, saucer-eyed, cokey, frying in flop sweat, gives the viewer the shrill thrill of being in someone else's nightmare. But the songs? Swung, man, swung.
