    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Fast-paced and unerringly surprising.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A low-budget wonder: rough and gritty around the edges, filmed for what looks like a budget of $1.98, but bristling with energy, passion and intimacy.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Conveys the character of this tiny, insular community through richness of detail.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    This movie has a sweetness at its core.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    At its best, Forrest Gump is a gentle, elegiac fantasy about love and trust.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Bound to be talked about, debated and eviscerated far more than it's understood.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A clever look at con artists and their games of deception.
    • 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Devlin tells his story without bias but with shards of gallows humor.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Sci-fi has rarely been so playful.
    • 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]
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Directed with style and wit by London filmmaker Richard Kwietniowski, who makes his feature debut here, Love and Death is an off-kilter romantic comedy.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's rare that we have a screen character as well-rounded, as recognizably human or as brilliantly played as Sonny Dewey.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Norman Bates is alive and well, and just a tad kinkier than you remember him.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    In Sorkin's vision, this is what ought to happen when a political progressive occupies the White House -- provided he has principles, guts and more on his mind than voter-approval polls and re- election prospects.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A first-rate historical drama.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It's a bouncy, occasionally awkward diversion with sharply written characters and good actors.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    A goofy genre-buster that takes its amateur criminals as seriously as ``Pulp Fiction'' or ``Run Lola Run'' did theirs.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Contrived and overly schematic, but De Niro and Hoffman are such good actors that it never slips into pat sentiment.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Manages to be affectionate without drawing too deeply from a well of sugar and schmaltz.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    Walks a sometimes-shaky line between tenderness and schmaltz.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Edward Guthmann
    It becomes stronger and more honest than most character studies on film.
    • 66 Metascore

    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.
