    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    One of those go-out-for-coffee-afterward-and-talk-about-it movies, and those are always welcome.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's a distinctly French feeling -- an air of caprice and light expectations -- and a perfect prologue to a delightful film.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Varda's subject matter is surprisingly rich, but it's her own energetic, curious nature that gives the film its snap.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Told so simply and powerfully that it seems to carry echoes of earlier, timeless tales.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The quality of acting in September, coupled with Idziak's images, warrant a visit.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    One of the most impressive actor-to-filmmaker transitions in recent years.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's a passionate, beautifully mounted film -- but the agenda she sets for herself is too large and the conflicts she portrays too complicated to be illustrated in a single drama.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Segues confidently from broad humor to tense drama.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The film's loose, scaled-down technique never turns gimmicky...but enhances the tension and intimacy of Rosetta's struggle.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    About American anti-Semitism, but it's not a typical genteel "cause" movie.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Could use more background and personal detail on Rijker, but Bankowsky's tight, no- frills approach is always compelling.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    An eye-opening documentary.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A tale of yuppie conformity and domestic angst that quickly turns into a horror film.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A wickedly, punishingly funny movie.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Great pleasures.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Has integrity, but the way he bends his tale to make a statement is overly deliberate.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The animation is rich and densely detailed, the characters well defined.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The film doesn't explore the nature of ghosts, as it promises to initially, but it's fun to watch Del Toro confront death and fear with such energy and humor.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Apart from Lawrence's goofing, Blue Streak isn't much of a movie.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Does about as good a job of simulating that terror as it possibly could, but it's no competition for what we create in our mind's eye while reading.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Graceful compositions and slow, easy pacing.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    For music fans, there's great pleasure in hearing new audio tracks to "Sitting Here in Limbo," "Friend of the Devil" and more songs -- each one complete and unedited.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Dafoe never reverts to campy, movie-monster gestures but seems liberated, consumed by his character, inspired to give a performance that's intuitive and otherworldly.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Uses loneliness and alienation as the primary emotional colors on a surprisingly expressive canvas.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A marvelous film.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Holds our attention by dispensing information gradually, like a piece of fiction.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    (Holm) nails one of the best roles of his career.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    (Morris's) strangest and most disturbing portrait yet.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Humanite isn't like any other film: It's uncompromising, eerily affecting and wildly unresolved.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's that compelling sense of mystery, of the endless search and its undercurrent of loneliness, that sets this great filmmaker apart.
