    Overlong and dramatically thin.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A charming coming-of-age drama.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The beginning is awkwardly earnest, but the play matures considerably while retaining its youthful energy and enthusiasm
    • 85 Metascore

    In this visually and emotionally severe landscape, Reichardt has created the sort of film that will inspire grad students to write passionate thesis papers - and casual moviegoers to feel as lost as her would-be settlers.

    Is it possible to enjoy the company of the world's most irritating woman? Mike Leigh's surprisingly sunny dramedy makes a pretty good case that, in fact, it is.

    The film is best suited for dance buffs excited by an unexpected congregation of artistic pioneers.

    As full-length toy advertisements go, you really couldn’t ask for more.

    Weisz's meticulously crafted turn is certainly touching, but it lacks the immediacy of, say, Celia Johnson's in 1945's "Brief Encounter."

    No one looks at the world quite like Kaurismäki, and his deadpan sentimentality is worth discovery. This is a good place to start.

    There's nothing exceptional about Jane Campion's historical biography, but it's a sufficiently lovely tale to suit romantics with a taste for intimate period dramas.

    Alison Klayman's chronicle of Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei is so straightforward that one can't help wishing the subject would make his own, more complex cinematic self-portrait. But for now, Klayman has provided a valuable introduction to a man everyone should know.

    Creating a hypnotically digressive travelogue, Herzog wanders from soul to soul, asking deceptively mild questions to potent effect.
    • 48 Metascore

    It's impossible to guess why Bullock was ever attracted to this insulting role, and the eternally confident Reynolds is miscast as a young, bullied underling.

    While Sigman conveys a credible state of tense disbelief throughout, it's increasingly frustrating to watch Laura so passively accept her dire fate.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Some of this wallowing goes on too long, risking our alienation from characters who are difficult to like. What saves the film is the fact that they are always easy to recognize, both as self-centered teenagers and tentatively maturing young adults.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The filmmakers' motivation couldn't be clearer: They needed to capture a way of life that may soon exist only on film and in memory.

    Rafferty keeps the structure so blandly standard, the title is nearly the most intriguing element of the whole film.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The humor is sharp and so are the judgments, which pile on until the characters are nearly suffocated under the weight of so much disdain.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Both director and cast exhibit the dedication of those who truly believe in the message at hand. But with so much earnestness onscreen, the message occasionally gets in the way of the movie itself.

    Miserable individuals do tend to make for interesting subject matter, and this would be far more of a dry biography without its willfully eccentric lead. Plus, if the crankiness gets to you, tune it out and focus on the music. That's what Clapton did.

    If you're going to make a movie about men talking, shouldn't they have something important to say?

    In Bahman Ghobadi's heart-tugger about Kurdish orphans, those wide eyes are too often used as a manipulative device.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    McDonagh indulges in too many '90s affectations, from blaring chapter titles to philosophizing gangsters. But he captures his misty setting's insular atmosphere beautifully.
    • 78 Metascore

    Though Argento and Aattou lack the searing chemistry needed, the social politics are consistently intriguing, and everything - not to mention everyone -looks absolutely stunning.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The scenery is stunning and the story compelling, but some viewers will find it easier to admire Tracks than to engage with this meditative tale of Robyn Davidson (played beautifully by Mia Wasikowska).
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Cute, mostly well-mannered and just a bit off-center.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Despite the packed plot adapted by Polanski and Robert Harris from Harris' novel -- the pacing feels oddly slack.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Feels more respectful than real.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    As is, the film is more likely to impress the choir than change many minds.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The movie wouldn’t stand for much of anything without such an effective team to represent the equivocating.
