    Both enchantingly old-fashioned and daringly modern.

    Yektapanah's stripped-down methods --remote setting, a cast of locals, the sparest of scripts -- are used so effectively, it quickly becomes clear that he's most concerned with the similarities rather than the differences between people.
    • 73 Metascore

    The tone is attentive and responsible.

    Never shies away from either the beauty or the cruelty of the hunt.

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

    Ought to suit fans just fine.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    An urgent, stirring story made all the more inspiring by the very ordinary nature of its subjects.
    • 63 Metascore

    Directors Adi Barash and Ruth Shatz do a brilliant job of letting the South African, Israeli, Cuban and Namibian men aboard speak for themselves.

    If you're looking for either insight or even just an introduction into the mind of a great artist, "One Day" is worth the effort.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Enlightening and rather unsettling documentary.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    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.

    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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A powerful drama that turns a common event -- the rending of a family -- into an intimate, personal affair.

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

    It's hard to believe Andy Warhol's Factory created enough characters to keep us interested 40 years later, but as it turns out, drag diva Jackie Curtis still has a few more minutes of fame left.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    Deftly intercutting between several tenuously-connected lives, Barbara Albert's astringent drama is transformed by bright flashes of compassion.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    The town's entrenched racism is impossible to ignore, but the efforts toward change make a compelling history.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    She (Walters) may be working with old news, but she shores up this shaky film with a heart the size of an ocean liner.

    The real highlight is watching the dancers as they progress from their first, tentative improvisations to the final, complex performance.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A fascinating capsule of an era long past.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Elizabeth Weitzman
    A funny and insightful exploration into identity issues we all can recognize.
    • 74 Metascore

    Pamela Yates' unblinking chronicle of recent Peruvian history paints a devastating picture of a people nearly destroyed by their own leaders.

    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.

    Almada steadfastly reserves judgment, which means we don't learn if there are members of the Mexican community who disapprove of corrido's hard-edged lyrics. But she makes a pretty good case for its passionate fans. Like them, we're left unable to get the music - and the musicians - out of our heads.

    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?

    The Groomsmen captures a single, specific moment, when responsibilities await but adulthood is still unwelcome. If their predicament strikes a chord, you may want to join Burns' boys for their final hurrah.

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

    It will be a long time before you forget the deep pain etched into the weary face of Carmelo Muñiz, the mariachi singer at the center of Mark Becker's immensely moving documentary.

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

    Burman tends to focus very tightly on the details of individual identity - religion, nationality, gender. It is all the more striking, then, that his restrained and unassuming films are wise enough to speak to every adult.
