    Visually arresting and deeply disheartening, James Longley's impressionistic documentary explores the pain of a shattered country by homing in on a few tiny shards.

    Andrew Bujalski's considerable gifts begin with his deep appreciation of the miserable, hilarious awkwardness of real life.

    Bar-Lev has created a film remarkable in its ability to capture both the worst and best of human nature.

    Although Voyages is mapped with anguish and fear, director Emmanuel Finkiel's characters are survivors, and he never lets us forget it.

    Kechiche takes his time, allowing us to know the characters as if we live next door. But be warned: for those who come to feel like a member of the family, the unexpected end may seem strikingly unfair.

    The result is a visual treasure that successfully blends deadpan quirkiness with a wry realism rarely seen in any film, let alone one for children.

    It is to Padilha's enormous credit that he steadfastly kicks aside our own culturally imposed frames of reference, insisting that we see the truth, and the humanity, within this very real story.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Elizabeth Weitzman
    One of the sharpest satires in years.

    If he has overlooked your favorites, have faith: There’s plenty left in the trunk for that promised encore.

    The story's fractured structure - and Christopher Doyle's dreamlike cinematography - make for a striking mood piece.

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

    Most crime stories are content to simply exist, wallowing in their own base violence. But David Michôd's fierce debut takes the genre apart, finding a reason for the madness that propels it.

    All the actors are wonderful, including Sacha Baron Cohen as a villainous Inspector.
    • 83 Metascore

    Heartbreaking and hilarious.

    Both leading actors are teenagers who’ve never acted before — and they are both phenomenal.

    Plenty of films owe a debt to "The Godfather," but it's rare to see inspiration used as successfully as it is here.

    Perhaps it's no surprise that Reitman has come out with a lovely Hollywood romance that floats buoyantly along on a sea of sadness.
    • 83 Metascore

    Ultimately, this is not a film about one specific event but about human nature - most notably, the instincts toward denial and delusion, acceptance and forgiveness. From start to finish, revelations abound.

    The result is an often-anguished monologue built on pride, despair and self-defense. Accuracy aside, Tyson does work hard to analyze his own, clearly complex character. So while we only get half the picture, it makes for consistently compelling viewing.

    But don't worry if you miss some details; this is the kind of movie that rewards a second viewing.

    If this lovely tribute sends viewers in search of the real thing, that would be a neat trick indeed.

    Weisz's meticulously crafted turn is certainly touching, but it lacks the immediacy of, say, Celia Johnson's in 1945's "Brief Encounter."
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The Namesake is suffused with radiant grace, and manages to be old-fashioned yet immediate, epic and intimate.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Alternately funny, sad and outrageous, Sacha Gervasi's terrific documentary feels like the lost sequel to “This Is Spinal Tap” -- and everyone involved seems to know it, except the leads.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Elizabeth Weitzman
    As smart as it is side-splittingly silly.

    Alfredson makes the most of every detail, carefully crafting an atmosphere of haunting alienation. These two lost souls may come together under unusual circumstances, but their connection feels universally human.

    Alex Gibney's forceful documentary starts with a single tragedy: the torture of an Afghani prisoner at Bagram Air Base. By the time it's over, he's broadened his focus into a documentary so damning of the U.S. government, it's hard to believe he even got it made.

    Simpson and Yates give a good idea why individuals are drawn to extreme sports.
    • 82 Metascore

    A film that is both deceptively modest and deeply resonant.

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