    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A first-rate historical drama.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Greenwald is fine at creating the texture of early mountain life but loses her footing by embracing several plot points at once.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Told so simply and powerfully that it seems to carry echoes of earlier, timeless tales.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The best reason in years to reconsider (Woody Allen).
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Guaranteed to inspire, antagonize and divide his (Lee's) audience.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Stettner approaches this material with a playwright's incisiveness and structural sense. His dialogue is cutting, often surprising.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's a monster of a movie, and it gets unwieldy.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's a bouncy, occasionally awkward diversion with sharply written characters and good actors.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The new material makes the film seem lumpy and overstuffed.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A clever look at con artists and their games of deception.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Succeeds despite that mismatch of artist and material.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Nicely performed by a quintet of actresses, but nonetheless it drags.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A blast of manic energy in the form of a film.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A compelling, sympathetic portrait.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A study in unexpressed emotion, but Mamet turns the flame so low that his film lacks the emotional payoff we expect.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Fast-paced and unerringly surprising.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A downbeat but oddly affectionate tale.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Delicious but complex.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A movie so cheeky, aggressive and bursting with vitality that it can't help being annoying and exhilarating at the same time.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Uses loneliness and alienation as the primary emotional colors on a surprisingly expressive canvas.
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Self-satisfied -- an undisciplined brat of a film.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Private Parts is witty and fast-paced and makes Stern's raunchy, breast-obsessed, lesbian-fetishizing, big-penis-envying, arrested-adolescent outlook seem like harmless fun.
    • 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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Leigh doesn't sentimentalize these tragic, dead-end lives but allows his characters to be ugly and stupid, to make horrendous mistakes. Sometimes they're laughable, and yet there's never the sense that Leigh is mocking them.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A visually spectacular film, distinguished by strong performances and brilliant Steadicam photography that snakes through the U-boat as its patrols the North Atlantic during World War II. [Director's Cut]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Joyously unhinged and outrageously inventive.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Enormously satisfying and fun to watch.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Clever, exceptionally well-written film.
