    Director Samira Makhmalbaf made this raw and effective parable with the recognizable help of her father, legendary director Mohsen Makhmalbaf.

    • 75 Jami Bernard
    The philosophy is even less plausible. But the action -- oh, the action! There's nothing else out there like it.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    An informative, amusing and unnerving overview of the history and consequences of corporations.

    What keeps these mother-daughter tumbleweeds from drifting right out of consciousness is the unique rapport between the actresses.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Amusing and slightly alarming documentary.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Uplifting and moving in a traditional Hollywood way, while also seeming as raw and unfiltered as cinema vérité.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Vardalos is a breath of fresh air. After all the little nipped and tucked bunnies we've been seeing onscreen for so long, we forget what real women look like.

    Jacques Demy showed up with the lightest touch with his 1960 Lola, a movie that has been called a musical without music.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    A sobering documentary done in a whimsical style.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Here, Noyce lets his camera, the geography and the youngsters tell this exceptionally powerful story.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Apt to scare kids. [18 December 1998, p.72]

    The floating, flailing, flying puppies in the inspired opening credits of 102 Dalmatians set the tone for an adorable sequel to the live-action version of the famously spotted cartoon.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    A neat, twisty little domestic drama about smart people, foolish choices.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Impressionistic and open to interpretation, which is a kind way of saying that there's no way to figure out the ending.
    • New York Daily News
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    A good-natured, gag-filled sequel.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    The strangely mesmerizing dance contest in "Pulp Fiction" was born of Jean-Luc Godard's 1964 New Wave classic Band of Outsiders.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Wiseman's film is revealing. But it is also a silent rebuke to a society that tries to hide this pervasive problem behind a smug vision of itself.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    The tension of Matt having to work alongside his wife without being able to trust her provides the movie's real electricity, sexual and otherwise.

    • 75 Jami Bernard
    All of Haas' movies have an air of weirdness and dread, and this one is no exception. But it's romantic as well.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Among the movie's oddball treats are Robert Downey Jr. as Grady's flamboyant editor and Rip Torn as a pedantic author and sermonizer known only as Q.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    The best way to look at this installment, however, is as musical theater of the absurd. The song-and-dance set pieces are brilliant, including a rap-style "It's a Hard Knock Life" in a prison.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    The acting is superb, with emotions roiling beneath rigid exteriors.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Outside of the leads, the acting is uneven, but The Tao of Steve has an unquenchable playful spirit.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    A gentle comic stew of monster movies, adding dashes of Bugs Bunny irreverence and British gentility.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Sharp, erotic performances are the mainstay of Olivier Assayas' unnerving Demonlover, a visually stylish movie that equates and fuses high-stakes corporate negotiations with the video-game mentality.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Alamo buffs will be delighted, and everyone else will be treated to something that feels like Old Hollywood crossed with new sensibilities.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Surprises, repulses and provokes. It's also brilliant and infuriating, wise and naïve, outrageous yet unforgettable.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    The movie's clever ambiguity allows a number of interpretations. Perhaps it is all a dream, a parable, or a combination of wishful thinking and reality.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    How dangerous it is to be a woman in Iran, especially one going against the wishes of her menfolk, is brought home time after time in these related vignettes.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Jami Bernard
    Too bad Heaven creeps into town when it deserved more fanfare. Consider it buried treasure, a thriller for the art- house crowd.
