    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.

    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Contrived and overly schematic, but De Niro and Hoffman are such good actors that it never slips into pat sentiment.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    At its simplest level, East Is East is a broad comedy, but Puri's acting, so honest and heartbreaking, gives the film weight.

    The quality of acting in September, coupled with Idziak's images, warrant a visit.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A sweet, unabashedly sentimental tale.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A wonderful, cockeyed sex comedy.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's downbeat material and it tends to drag a bit, but Jia's performance is so unsparing and intense -- and the film so compassionate and chaste in its approach to a life lost and recovered -- that Quitting ultimately satisfies.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A mystical tale of two souls, joined in love but divided in society, seeking redemption and understanding before they pass to another plane.

    Graceful compositions and slow, easy pacing.
    • 61 Metascore

    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The movie's soul isn't its plot but the relationships among the girls.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    About American anti-Semitism, but it's not a typical genteel "cause" movie.
    • 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A wickedly, punishingly funny movie.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    One never knows where "Warm Water" is going and even though the film's objective feels a little fuzzy even at the end a parable on female sexuality? an ode to liberty? there's such a joy in the telling that it doesn't matter terribly.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A stunning directing debut -- is anything but sentimental about old- country customs.
    • 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.

    Devlin tells his story without bias but with shards of gallows humor.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    (Morris's) strangest and most disturbing portrait yet.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Schrader seems to understand these characters implicitly, and the result is probably the best film he has directed.
    • 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
    In his thrilling feature debut, Madame Sata, Brazilian filmmaker Karim Ainouz doesn't glorify dos Santos but examines the hot, reckless fever of his life in all its thorny complexity.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Apart from Lawrence's goofing, Blue Streak isn't much of a movie.

    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Efficient action thriller.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
