    Crumb is one of the most provocative, haunting documentaries of the last decade.

    Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized? I don't think so. [Review of re-release]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 100 Edward Guthmann
    Loose, buoyant and bracingly original.

    In his big-screen directing debut, British film maker Danny Boyle demonstrates wit, intelligence and economy of style.

    Days of Heaven is a visual poem. Slow and elegant, reverential in the way it celebrates the earth's contours and the play of light. [27 Oct. 1999, p.B3]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Edward Guthmann
    All things considered, The Long Day Closes is a remarkable film -- tender and intelligent, long on mood and short on ''action,'' a cinematic poem that stands head and shoulders above the summer harvest of bonehead action thrillers. [23 July 1993, p.C9]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Edward Guthmann
    The beauty of Morris' achievement is the way he fuses Hawking's work in theoretical physics with his subject's life history -- finding subtle connections between the two, and avoiding the pat, predictable structure of biographical film. [28 Aug 1992, p.C3]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Edward Guthmann
    Terrific.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Edward Guthmann
    It's tremendously entertaining, and probably worthy of repeat viewings.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Edward Guthmann
    Plummer gives her strangest, most uninhibited screen performance to date. Playing Eunice, a wildly psychotic killer with a working-class British accent and a mysterious past, Plummer draws a streak of white-hot rage across the screen.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Edward Guthmann
    An entertaining but exhausting satire on tabloid media and the way they feed our thirst for violence, Natural Born Killers stars Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis, in banshee-out-of-hell performances, as serial killers Mickey and Mallory Knox -- a trashy, gonzo/weirdo version of Bonnie & Clyde. [26 Aug 1994, p.C1]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    van der Groen, described as "Belgium's national treasure," is especially terrific as Pauline.

    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A movie by a man who adores film and relishes its potential.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Nicely performed by a quintet of actresses, but nonetheless it drags.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Get Shorty is exquisitely cast, with droll, well-nuanced performances.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Nicely photographed and beautifully scored.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The movie's soul isn't its plot but the relationships among the girls.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Jay and Claire are exquisitely played by Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    This is a tour-de-force performance, delivered by an actor at the top of his game, and it's a shame that K-Pax, instead of engaging our imaginations as it promises to, devolves into such a conventional, paint-by- numbers disappointment.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A big, gorgeous, sprawling swashbuckler that delivers its diversions in grand, uncomplicated fashion.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Dark and beautifully directed melodrama about the strange intersection of racism and emotional need.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The movie belongs to Rodriguez: A gorgeous woman with a powerful body and the face of an Aztec princess, she's also a natural talent who instinctively understands the importance of economy in good acting.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Efficient action thriller.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A blast of manic energy in the form of a film.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Demonstrates, if nothing else, that there's a genuine person -- chastened by mistakes and more compassionate, perhaps, for all she's suffered -- beneath the war paint and the stardust.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Wong denies us the satisfaction of resolution, but in sharing his mastery of cinema, and his gift for conveying mood, desire and vivid emotions, he's more than generous.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Wonderfully original comedy.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    There's tremendous maturity and skill in Felicia's Journey but also a sense of impending horror that's bound to repel some audience members -- even though the violence is all implied.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Sarandon and Portman work beautifully -- together, negotiating a range of emotional keys that blend comedy and drama in the same moment.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Has slow patches and requires a generous suspension of disbelief. But it's also sweet and optimistic -- a welcome antidote to gloom.
