    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Uses loneliness and alienation as the primary emotional colors on a surprisingly expressive canvas.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Self-satisfied -- an undisciplined brat of a film.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A sweet, unabashedly sentimental tale.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Despite the awkward, stomach- churning camera movements and the grainy, flat images that come with insufficient lighting, the actors' work is often riveting and compelling.
    • 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.
    • 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]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Guaranteed to inspire, antagonize and divide his (Lee's) audience.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Wong denies us the satisfaction of resolution, but in sharing his mastery of cinema, and his gift for conveying mood, desire and vivid emotions, he's more than generous.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A charming, finely nuanced romance.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Placing style above coherence, Seven glosses over plot points and shows a weakness for cheap, lurid effects.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A movie by a man who adores film and relishes its potential.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Could use more background and personal detail on Rijker, but Bankowsky's tight, no- frills approach is always compelling.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    (Holm) nails one of the best roles of his career.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Entertaining.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    This is Rampling's film, and she's never less than surprising, never less than a revelation.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Schrader seems to understand these characters implicitly, and the result is probably the best film he has directed.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's hard to follow, the characters are ill-defined, and the wide-angle shots used by Wong's perennial cinematographer, Christopher Doyle, are deliberately unflattering.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Manages to be affectionate without drawing too deeply from a well of sugar and schmaltz.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    At its best, Forrest Gump is a gentle, elegiac fantasy about love and trust.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The new material makes the film seem lumpy and overstuffed.
    • 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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The animation is rich and densely detailed, the characters well defined.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Jay and Claire are exquisitely played by Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It becomes stronger and more honest than most character studies on film.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Exhilarating not only for its dreamlike images and fierce, frequently reckless imagination but also for the fact that it got made (and released) at all.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    His (Seidl) camera is shocking in its intimacy, his film surprisingly casual in its depiction of extreme behavior and the randomness of violence.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    The photography is strong, the performances sympathetic and the sex plentiful.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A first-rate historical drama.
