    • 64 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    A handsome and fully imagined work of cautionary futuristic fiction.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    A narrative path leading from the sincere to the ludicrous, and culminating in a final image of flabbergasting transcendance, gives Breaking the Waves its surprising power.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    When you get the shivers watching this wintry tale unfold, it won't be from the cold.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    This is a formula film, but it has the kind of good cheer and fine tuning that occasionally give slickness a good name.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    The purity and breadth of this meticulous study are all the more gratifying in view of its unprepossessing style.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Drawing a parade of colorful performances from a constantly surprising cast, the curiously titled ''John Grisham's 'The Rainmaker' '' is Mr. Coppola's best and sharpest film in years.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Grandly entertaining...matches the Austen-based "Clueless" for sheer run. [13 Dec 1995]
    • The New York Times
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Elegant, festive and very, very funny. [9 March 1994, p. C15]
    • The New York Times
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    As directed exquisitely by Gillian Armstrong in a headstrong spirit that recalls her debut feature, "My Brilliant Career," this elliptical tale makes up in visual beauty whatever it lacks in universal meaning.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Fierce and disturbing, with a plot that skillfully resists following any familiar course. The film's hero fears that he's half-crazy, and for two hours Mr. Gilliam artfully keeps his audience feeling the same way.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    For all its exaggerated ordinariness, this film seems to start where others leave off.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Mr. Pitt moves through this unexpectedly solid thriller with dazzling confidence, showing off all the star power that he usually works overtime to hide.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Kubrick left one more brilliantly provocative tour de force as his epitaph.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Unfolds beautifully, with a rueful, knowing intelligence that rises above easy assumptions. [27 September 1996, p.C1]
    • The New York Times
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Those unfamiliar with the book will simply appreciate a stirring, many-sided fable, one that is exceptionally well told.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    It proves to be one of the more exotic blooms in the Disney hothouse, what with voluptuous flora, hordes of fauna, charming characters and excitingly kinetic animation that gracefully incorporates computer-generated motion.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Elvis Mitchell
    Crackling good... the best crime movie in a long while.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    Combine two stars of this wattage with a lot of techno-talk and elaborate heist plotting and you get plenty of good reasons to pay attention.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    The film's mix of romance and reading matter is seductive in its own right, providing comfy book-lined settings and people who are what they read and write.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    An American remake with plenty of new pizazz.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    When it comes to holiday films worth swooning over, here's the one to see.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    With unexpected success, Robert Altman plays a John Grisham mystery in a seductive new key.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    The film's greatest directorial success is in finding a thoroughly entertaining way of inviting the audience to share Valerie's point of view.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    The Dinner Game, which Veber wrote and directed, is one of his better-constructed comedies of errors.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    Dryly clever.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    The real fun here comes from watching Mr. Kline bounding through two archly good performances, Mr. Cleese coming hilariously unstrung in the presence of Ms. Curtis and all those adorable animals.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    The good thing is that the principals and film makers make the absolute most of a conventional opportunity.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    An intense, volatile film full of sorrow and wild, mordant humor.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    Made with such overriding jubilation that its coarseness is mostly liberating...well worth admiring for its sheer glee.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Elvis Mitchell
    The filmmaker creates schematic, intuitive images that hauntingly crystallize the characters' situations.
