    Meandering but reasonably charming.

    Coppola hasn't delivered a turkey--it's a cute little movie, if not as rich as her brother Roman's similarly themed "CQ"--but when work this potentially satisfying remains flatly obvious, it's almost worse than being flat-out bad.

    The songs are actually quite good--if also hideously embarrassing--but these comedians take their roles far too seriously, to their peril and our puzzlement.
    • 81 Metascore

    Revelatory and disappointing.
    • 80 Metascore

    Feels mostly like an audacious prank.
    • 78 Metascore

    An affecting film, but it just may not be everyone's cup of cyanide.
    • 76 Metascore

    A very dull movie.

    This elegant vision of sexual roles is certain to make a lasting impression and is likely to provoke explosive dialogues in Denny's and sidewalk cafés from here to Monaco.

    For a general audience the entertainment factor is quite low. The project may best serve us not on the screen, but in a time capsule.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Gregory Weinkauf
    Too bad it commits the crime of being so intensely average, because what could have been sensational turns out to be merely this week's heist movie.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Gregory Weinkauf
    As detached and unfocused as a college pothead. And about as much fun.
    • 71 Metascore

    Once Connell finds his feet, he just may stride forth with his Important American Movie. Until then, The Opportunists is simply a whiff of great unwashedness yet to come.

    For three jerks bitching in a box, Tape makes the most of its minimalism. At its best, it's Betrayal for the Breakfast Club set.

    Heavy with mood and Finn's fine music, Jeffs' debut feature merely moistens us when we should be soaked. Maybe next time she'll let it all come down.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Gregory Weinkauf
    Quills is bound to titillate some, but for most it's likely to summon little more than a few Oscars and appreciative yawns.
    • 70 Metascore

    Despite moments of gritty greatness that rival Scorsese's best, the movie is severely hampered by please-everyone syndrome, especially in the editing and choice of music.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Gregory Weinkauf
    Authenticity and plausibility get gunned down from the get-go, but if explosive shaky-cam ultraviolence and frequent extreme close-ups of greasy whiskers are your bag, this hyperactive wannabe may count as something of a score.
    • 70 Metascore

    Audiences are advised to sit near the back and squint to avoid noticing some truly egregious lip-non-synching, but otherwise the production is suitably elegant, a fine retreat from summer cinema overkill.

    What's in it for you? Mostly a bunch of astronauts and cosmonauts onboard the International Space Station, floating around filming each other.

    Nói makes a stab at tragic romance.
    • 68 Metascore

    The stately pacing and meandering plot often reduce this potential classic to generous eye candy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Gregory Weinkauf
    There's too much self-congratulatory showbiz overkill, and one is forced to wonder exactly who is getting paid, and how much, for leading this parade in his honor. Otherwise, this project makes it easy for anyone to understand the sanctified, semi-crazed star and the elements that created and destroyed him.

    Fight Club is to intelligent men what Catherine Breillat's "Romance" is to intelligent women -- an insult.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Gregory Weinkauf
    what we've got here is a little propaganda film. A mild one, certainly, but the cliché of DIY hopefuls (band) versus the Big Machine (music industry) foments the same tedious struggle of art versus commerce.

    Satisfying in its setup and execution, and the Catholic guilt streaked through its dank, rainy atmosphere serves it well. Nonetheless, the story's subtleties in this version are often outweighed by melodrama, sometimes verging on sap.

    It's the usual struggle of growing up and growing old, but Muccino's twists are plucky and revealing when he's not suffocating us with heavy-handed mortality and pathos.
    • 65 Metascore

    The challenge faced here by writer-director Robert Guédiguian (Charge!) is to keep his cheap melodrama from curdling his insightful societal appraisal.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Gregory Weinkauf
    Hasty pacing makes for a rich and exciting movie, but not an especially spooky or spellbinding one.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Gregory Weinkauf
    The soul of Gladiator is made sluggish by a maddening lack of suspense.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Gregory Weinkauf
    Standing on its own, it's comme ci, comme ça, self-serious when it should be adventurous, coy when it should be revelatory. One must afford it props, though, for its proud celebration of insanity. Now that is truly creepy.
