    • 60 Guy Lodge
    A proficient but personality-free policer that demands little of either its audience or its enviable best-of-British cast, this simplistic urban morality tale miscasts the appealing James McAvoy as one good cop whose dogged pursuit of Mark Strong’s alpha criminal only uncovers the rot within police ranks.

    • 60 Guy Lodge
    Tsai here seems to be stripping his ornately eccentric style down to formal fundamentals. A certain pictorial grace remains; his sense of humor, sadly, appears to have been largely tossed out with the bathwater.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    Mellow, digestibly sweet and embellished with lovely folk tunes, this modest bit of Americana reveals pleasing new sides of both leads.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    Earnest issue drama and pulpy B-thriller mechanics make awkward but not uncompelling bedfellows in Honour.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    It’s as handsomely shot as any film about an ace shutterbug ought to be, and Binoche infuses familiar internal crises with palpable pain and urgency.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    The rare prestige pic that could actually stand to be longer.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    Its repetitive qualities are beyond reproach. Every bit as amiable and disposable as its predecessor, it recycles everything from slapstick gags to its own voice cast.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    The consistently celebratory stance of “Kink” is commendable, but also feels somewhat limiting.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    The film is easier to admire than it is to invest in emotionally, though its pulse quickens with a dramatic, and boldly untelegraphed, feminist twist in the rural-set final reel.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    There’s typical grace and good humour in Kore-eda’s handling of this all-but-impossible situation. But the film’s critical lack of dramatic nuance undercuts its emotional resonance.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    The narrative’s time-travel element allows for plenty of fluffy, fleet-footed action.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    Attention is retained by the commendably unhistrionic leads, who convincingly etch the pair’s enduring devotion even when passions run dry.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    It’s all extravagantly daft, moves at a fair clip and is over before you expect it to be.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    As ruggedly crafted as you’d expect from director Kevin Macdonald, with a sturdy ensemble led by Jude Law as a submarine captain of formidable sangfroid, the film nonetheless never quite sparks to life.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    It’s an opportunity only half seized: Haphazard both as biography and historical survey, the film asks more salient questions than it can answer in a rushed 76 minutes.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    A wry, oh-so-gentle dual character study saved from sleepiness by the unexpected star pairing of Catherine Deneuve and Gustave Kervern.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    At least three entertaining films are jostling for position in Australian writer-director Julius Avery’s messily propulsive debut feature, Son of a Gun — and if none ultimately emerges dominant, the red-blooded tussle between them is never dull to watch.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    The upside for Saint Laurent’s admirers is that Bonello’s film reflects more of the designer’s tortured creative drive in its dark onyx surfaces; it’s the slightly deranged auteur portrait that a fellow artist and iconoclast deserves.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    [An] amiable but flat-footed debut feature.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    The film milks some brisk comedy from its upstairs-downstairs peekaboo, but is too breezy to convince in its depiction of obsessive erotic fixation — making for a “Diary” that oddly feels less exposing as it goes along.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    Salaciously watchable but finally hokey.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    It’s a rare pleasure to see Tomei in a lead role, and she fills out the short cuts in Lawrence’s characterization with wry warmth and a hint of swallowed disappointment.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    This admirable, watercolor-delicate tale of individual feminist emancipation never quite blooms into living color, hampered by spotty casting and Richard Laxton’s overly deliberate direction.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    Well-meaning but dated and frequently risible issue-drama.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    Airless visual treatment and mannered performances compound the impression that LaBute might have been better off saving this material for the stage, though it’d be a pretty tame trifle in either context.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    The voice ensemble is game, if not especially well matched.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    Correctly ascertaining that auds will be less interested in the outcome than in the obstacles along the way, Levasseur plants and executes the pic’s exclamation-point scares with grinning, squelching gusto.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Guy Lodge
    Both stars are in agreeable if uncharacteristically muted form, doing little to distinguish Genz’s pic from any amount of formula-following filler in the same B-movie ballpark.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Guy Lodge
    It’s a testament to the duo’s jazzy comic chemistry that they wring some laughs from this dated, frankly sinister premise.
