    Despite a brief, unnecessary foray into melodrama -- stands alone as compelling entertainment.

    This is not a film for the impatient. But director Aparna Sen finds the poetry in romantic restraint, which is a mighty rare resource these days.

    Frustratingly, though, and not a little ironically, Justman chooses to focus on the new stars when they sing, rather than on the Funk Brothers playing in the background. Just as curiously, he paints a remarkably rosy picture of the old days, overlooking the racism and exploitation the Brothers surely experienced.

    Though younger fans of Cameron's 1997 blockbuster may be a little disappointed at the lack of, well, Leo, Cameron persuades us to share his obsession with the ship's history.

    The whole movie is a blast, thanks to a whip-smart script clearly written for kids and grownups alike.

    Toward the finish, the movie takes a regrettable curve into melodrama, but the excellent performances never waver.

    Proving there's always a new way to tell an old story, Stephen Chow pulls out all the stops for one of the silliest, sweetest and most fun family films in recent memory.

    Although we never feel any true connection to the enigmatic actress, there's no denying the inventiveness of Kon's homage to the possibilities of cinema.

    Winterbottom informs us that, though fictional, his story represents thousands of real lives, and there is a hardly a false note, which makes this both a difficult and exceedingly memorable film to watch.

    Though the Chinese government won't be too happy about it, everyone else ought to be deeply moved by the tragedies Peosay records.

    A memorable portrait of a true New York character, Rob Fruchtman and Rebecca Cammisa's documentary ably captures the blazing force at its center.

    Though Army officials vigorously defend the school, after watching so many grim interviews with victims of the school's alumni, agreeing with Smihula's skepticism is finally unavoidable.

    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.

    The town's entrenched racism is impossible to ignore, but the efforts toward change make a compelling history.

    To Devlin's great credit, he keeps us rapt throughout.
    • 63 Metascore

    A powerful drama that turns a common event -- the rending of a family -- into an intimate, personal affair.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Both enchantingly old-fashioned and daringly modern.

    Long stretches go by without dialogue or discernible action. But there are significant rewards for those willing to accept the movie's deliberate pace.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    By deftly blending silliness and sophistication, this little movie does its part to stem the technological tide.
    • 73 Metascore

    Though he's working with an unavoidably sentimental story, Kon embraces the dark underside of his characters' lives, giving this animated film a satisfyingly three-dimensional feel.

    It's no easy trick to invite viewers into an utterly bleak setting populated by the dissatisfied and small-minded. But a droll script and generally deft direction make the Icelandic chill surprisingly inviting.

    A poignant, deeply ­intimate history of one family.

    Bergman and his gifted cast do an excellent job portraying the wounded, but still vital, connections that help these people heal even as they fervently believe it's time to give up.

    Hickenlooper does a nice job blending Bingenheimer's flashy past with his somewhat pathetic present, creating a genuinely compelling study in diminishing returns.

    A vanity project so preposterous it deserves to become an instant camp hit.

    Where Kim's best-known movie, "The Isle," was a stomach-churner, this beautifully composed canvas is the sort of film one falls into, resurfacing at the end with great reluctance.

    As an alternative to the slick, instantly forgettable fare usually made for kids and preteens, Ella Enchanted brings a little bit of magic to the multiplex.

    Thomas does an excellent job exploring the incendiary environment that shaped the band in the late 1960s. His primary interest, however, is simply to express and explain the thrill the MC5 still inspires.
