    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    While the movie’s multiple images are never less than numinous, and its rhythms sometimes skirt the strangely seductive, this astonishing movie is the opposite of hypnotic.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Both inspiring and upsetting, Democrats is, finally, a film that deserves to be called “necessary.”
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    The mood Mr. Weerasethakul conjures is all the more extraordinary when you consider that the movie’s premise, in the hands of almost any other director, would be used to build some kind of horror movie.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Influences aside, the movie so teems with delightful detail and has such an exuberant sense of play that it feels entirely fresh.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    The movie culminates in a cinematic coup de grâce bold enough to spin your head — one that gives the movie an entirely new dimension.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    The movie raises disquieting questions, including a few that Mr. Mansky might not have meant to.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    The action is gorgeously fluid, the idiosyncratic 3-D visual conceits (including floating eyeballs undersea) are startling, and the story and its metaphors resolve in unexpected and moving ways.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    One of the funniest, smartest, most moving pictures of the year.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    I don't think we're going to see a better--a funnier or more genuinely heartwarming, for that matter--comedy this year.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Olivier Assayas latest effort could be mistaken for a hipper-than-thou thriller. But it isn’t--it’s in fact a difficult, challenging, and troubling art film. [October 2003, p. 19]

    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    This is one of the year's most subtly moving films, and a strong affirmation of Coppola's substantial talent.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Perhaps the greatest, most affecting articulation of the theme Eastwood has been exploring since 1990's "White Hunter Black Heart": how violence--real violence, not movie violence--perpetrated and experienced, can erode and/or obliterate the human soul.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Although this installment is a beautiful stand-alone thang (check out how its chronology-juggling storyline creates a perfect circle, structure-wise).
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    I haven't been crazy about a lot of Van Sant's recent work, but what he does here is simply astonishing. [November 2003, p. 25]
    • Premiere
    • 64 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    It's flat-out comedy all the way, head-spinningly clever (you'll be talking about a sequence set in the Louvre for weeks) and always engaging. For my money, it's the comedy of the year.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Has a warmth that’s utterly enchanting, and a tenderness that’s genuinely touching. This is a real gem.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Big Fish really is a big delight.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    A phantasmagorical slab of epic entertainment that satisfies on every conceivable level.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    The thrills of this movie are aesthetic ones, the creation of new, ravishing imagery (and all three of our young heroes are beautiful enough to be up to this task), the surrender to dream logic, the adoration of the silver screen.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    A wildly imaginative, hugely entertaining tour de force that asks big questions about life and love and fate while never ceasing to fully engage the viewer.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    It really is a masterpiece--von Trier's first, as it happens.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    This is a movie of head-spinning richness.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Over the course of almost two and a half fascinating hours, they make a cogent, compelling, powerful argument, and they also make a terrific movie.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Yep, this movie is basically a yakfest, but an incredibly fluid and involving one, and if you have any kind of affinity for either of the characters, you’re bound to find the picture a kind of miracle.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Demme here shows off both the mastery of suspense that made "The Silence of the Lambs" a classic, and the humane understanding and appreciation of character that not just deepens but energizes this film.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Provocative, quietly erotic, deeply romantic, and slyly witty (a cameo by a giant of punk rock is funny at first sight, and funnier still when you figure out the joke it's making), Code 46 is a very effective antidote to summer blockbuster bloat.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Hero is one of the most beautiful and involving films of the year.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    The result is by far the most original comedy of the year. Russell might alienate some audience members here--but it’s possible they literally won't know what they're missing.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Every performance here is wonderful, and the movie abounds in moments so true as to be cringe-worthy.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Glenn Kenny
    Depp and Winslet in particular are, as you might expect, immaculate. I don't think there's another actor alive who can convey the intermingling of gentleness and passion with as much precision as Depp.
