    A master of minimalism, Finland's Aki Kaurismaki makes films that are so dry, so delicately ironic that they seem on the verge of crumbling in front of us -- but they never do.

    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A showcase for Wang's greatest strengths as a film maker: a chance to explore friendships, connections and random serendipities.

    • 75 Edward Guthmann

    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It becomes stronger and more honest than most character studies on film.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    One of the most impressive actor-to-filmmaker transitions in recent years.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A charming, finely nuanced romance.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Humanite isn't like any other film: It's uncompromising, eerily affecting and wildly unresolved.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Jay and Claire are exquisitely played by Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Captures the effervescence and playfulness of Johnson's novel, even as it attempts to shoehorn a tangle of characters and situations.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A gentle, sprightly satire that pokes fun at these trendy communards but emphasizes their humanity and fallibility.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Heartfelt and passionate and brave in what it attempts to explore.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    An eye-opening documentary.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's that dilemma -- a commitment to Orthodox life, the refusal to deny one's sexuality and the fear of expulsion once that sexuality is revealed -- that director Sandi Simcha DuBowski illustrates so powerfully.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A marvelous film.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Get Shorty is exquisitely cast, with droll, well-nuanced performances.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Captures one of the wildest, most heartbreaking episodes in Gilliam's career.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    [Raimi]'s drawn lovely, complex performances from Paxton and Thornton and proven that he can work effectively -- and movingly -- in a minor emotional key.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Norman Bates is alive and well, and just a tad kinkier than you remember him.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Manages to be affectionate without drawing too deeply from a well of sugar and schmaltz.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Not only celebrates Deren's cinematic legacy but also reveals a gifted talent whose explosive temperament was at odds with the lyrical, dreamlike imagery she put on screen.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann

    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The aftertaste of that father-son scene is so strong, so disturbing, that the riches of Happiness -- its writing, its performances, its trenchant wit -- all seem a bit diminished in the bargain.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's Eric Bana, a popular Australian stand-up comic, who justifies our interest with a dazzling performance of blunt humor, unpredictability and an edge of menace.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Places Myers firmly on the top rung of movie comics.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    (Holm) nails one of the best roles of his career.
