    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.

    It is an excruciating experience. But then, it would have to be. We're watching the distilled essence of war.

    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.

    Fans are, obviously, most likely to appreciate the concert footage that's woven throughout the film. But the most powerful moments come offstage, when we see young audience members burn with the fresh outrage of the newly enlightened.

    Anyone who laments the loss of an older, grittier New York ought to adore this affectionate portrait of Greenwich Village restaurant owner Kenny Shopsin.

    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Smart, spiky comedy upends every traditional notion of love, sex and family.

    Though he doesn't break any new documentary ground, Lee knows how to shoot his subjects. Their stories are moving, and their moves are thrilling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Both enchantingly old-fashioned and daringly modern.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    By turns funny, touching and genuinely inspiring.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A poignant, deeply ­intimate history of one family.

    From folk festivals to political rallies, Masud never overlooks the cultural and emotional elements of a country at a crossroads.
    • 53 Metascore

    The sort of independent-film project that could have been disastrous in less-skilled hands. But Freeman's direction is so deft and the performances so natural that her remarkable experiment ends up feeling more realistic than most documentaries.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A fascinating exploration of the mysteries of the artist's life.

    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.

    Unlike most inner-city stories that come out of Hollywood, this feels like the real thing.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    It's not a pretty picture, but it sure is a compelling one.

    The always reliable Kingsley and Shaw are hilarious, and if the movie isn't quite a triumph, it's still far better than the junk food currently cluttering movie screens.

    Though the film does have the modest, human-interest feel of a "60 Minutes" segment, it grows stronger as it goes along.

    Note: We're giving this one 4 stars if you're under 12; 2-1/2 stars if you're not...That unwieldy name should give you some sense of Disney's intentions: this is, plain and simple, a consolation prize for all the frustrated fans who couldn't get tickets to Cyrus' sold-out stadium tour last year.

    Unlike so many indie films, Michael Kang's gently empathetic debut embraces eccentricity without drowning in its own hip irony.
    • 76 Metascore

    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.

    Her story (Ganatra) -- and the rest of the gifted, multicultural cast that brings it to life -- represents another step in the evolving face of film.

    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Both a witty ode to and a poignant lament for the choices we make.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Manages to tackle some serious issues without sacrificing its inherently sweet nature.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Denis' slow, deliberate style shuns typical suspense techniques, relying instead on something far more effective: a stunning performance by Testud.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    At moments, the story skirts uncomfortably close to the grotesque. But this atmospheric oddity delivers a surprisingly sensitive take on the overwhelming ache of loneliness.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Though the film is as long as the escape route, Richter's brisk direction keeps us riveted through the suspenseful finish of his vivid history lesson.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Heated speeches about the International Monetary Fund, debt relief and global responsibility may not sound like your idea of Friday-night entertainment, but Sissako makes a strong case.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    There are a few fight scenes, but they're as unshowy as the rest of this restrained film. If your warrior ideal is Uma Thurman in "Kill Bill," you may not have the patience this gentle story demands of its viewers.
