    A movie that eliminates Hollywood gloss and pop cliches -- and in their place offers an honest look at young love and its pitfalls.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A clever look at con artists and their games of deception.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Enormously satisfying and fun to watch.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's a weird movie, in that spooky/sicko, deadpan way that Lynch's movies always are, and it's guaranteed to repel anyone who likes entertainment wrapped in tidy resolutions and optimistic fade- outs.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A downbeat but oddly affectionate tale.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Joel Schumacher, the director of "Falling Down," "The Client" and "Batman Forever," has a strong feel for this kind of glossy pop entertainment and a way of integrating social issues without sacrificing narrative drive.

    Impassioned and well-crafted, One Day in September is also grueling.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Some scenes ramble and go on too long, dialogue occasionally turns awkward and adolescent, and the film threatens to collapse from its own unchecked anger.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A showcase for Wang's greatest strengths as a film maker: a chance to explore friendships, connections and random serendipities.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Never becomes the thoroughly satisfying psychological drama that it promises to be. There's also a problem with the central metaphor of ice -- a literary device that turns repetitive and obvious.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    van der Groen, described as "Belgium's national treasure," is especially terrific as Pauline.
    • 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Devlin tells his story without bias but with shards of gallows humor.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Pool captures the crazed urgency of first love -- the feeling of a passion so fierce that even a disapproving society can't crush it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Nicely performed by a quintet of actresses, but nonetheless it drags.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Dark and beautifully directed melodrama about the strange intersection of racism and emotional need.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A lively, ultimately sad portrait.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Captures one of the wildest, most heartbreaking episodes in Gilliam's career.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The best reason in years to reconsider (Woody Allen).
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Dead Man plays a lot of cards at the same time, and Jarmusch occasionally loses his rhythm when he allows his actors their improvisational riffs.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Graceful compositions and slow, easy pacing.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    One of the year's funniest acts of malice.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    About American anti-Semitism, but it's not a typical genteel "cause" movie.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Kilmer dons 12 disguises in all, polishes them with impeccable accents and pliable postures and gives a performance that's far and away the best aspect of the diverting The Saint.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Get Shorty is exquisitely cast, with droll, well-nuanced performances.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    I don't want to damn Holofcener's efforts with faint praise, but the best way to describe Walking and Talking is to say that it's pleasant and charming.
