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

    Turns the dangerous monotony of poverty and unemployment into something nearly hypnotic.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Because the film focuses entirely on the women's work, we learn too little about their personal histories. How did they even rise to such prominence in what appears to be an extremely patriarchal society?

    There's no question that the film's primary intent is to showcase its stars, but thanks to their perfectly attuned performances, it feels more real than self-conscious.

    An urgent, stirring story made all the more inspiring by the very ordinary nature of its subjects.

    Despite the movie's intimate nature, Siegel deftly broadens his view to observe the culture and conditions of contemporary American farming. Don't be surprised if, by the finish, you wind up fantasizing about your own rural homestead.

    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Dropping in amusing anecdotes and tender memories, a deeply reflective Young revisits - and often reinterprets - both his recent and classic work.

    Broomfield conducts riveting interviews with a former LAPD officer, Biggie's fiercely protective mother and assorted hangers-on, but the actual thrust of his evidence seems almost irrelevant.

    The intimate history of Doug Block's parents becomes fodder for a broader look at family secrets in this complex documentary.

    Weary and overworked to her very bones, Dora nevertheless has a heart of gold and a spine of steel. The movie does, too.

    The many riveting moments will stay with you for days, and Padilla is well up to the task of carrying this intense story on his tiny shoulders.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Carefully walks the fine line between paying homage to a classic and entertaining a modern audience.

    Clearly intended as a reminder that one person can move - or, at least, save - mountains.

    Once in a while, a little reality can be a welcome antidote to our increasingly outsized film fantasies.

    Mazel tov to Scott Marshall for creating an endearing portrayal of familial lunacy that ought to charm as many Smiths as it will Steins.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The kind of thriller we've seen a thousand times before. Fortunately, nobody told leads, Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins, both of whom devoutly believe they're in another, better movie.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Sauper captures a world in which life and death are treated with equal practicality - and disregard. His camera is unflinching; your gaze may not be quite so steady.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The story's fractured structure - and Christopher Doyle's dreamlike cinematography - make for a striking mood piece.

    Pamela Yates' unblinking chronicle of recent Peruvian history paints a devastating picture of a people nearly destroyed by their own leaders.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A charmingly loony tale of two young loners who form an unlikely bond, this droll Japanese import puts the predictable banality of most Hollywood teen flicks to shame.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Ought to suit fans just fine.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Never shies away from either the beauty or the cruelty of the hunt.

    Fox stumbles a little at the end, which is unnecessarily exaggerated. He should have trusted his own talent - it's the attention to minor details that makes his work so memorable.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A fascinating, damning picture of bourgeois boredom that manages to be both epic and intimate at the same time.

    Watching Tuba's proud girls disappear into anonymous clouds of chadors says more than any political diatribe could, and Bani-Etemad is wise enough to know it.

    A lovely little coming-of-age story, this Taiwanese romance was directed by Chih-Yen Yee with a skillful subtlety enhanced by his young cast.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Consistently compelling and required viewing for anyone remotely interested in pop culture.

    Bong's primary point is dead-on: Battling bureaucracy, from dishonest government leaders to indifferent civil servants, is the biggest horror of all.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Enlightening and rather unsettling documentary.
