    The sniper's life is a lonely one, full of shallow breathing and delayed gratification. Solitary as it is, Jude Law manages to get a little action in the bunkers of wartime Stalingrad in the ambitious but sometimes inadvertently silly Enemy at the Gates.

    As strong on action as it is weak on the interpersonal stuff. If Bond can get a new car for each episode, how about some new pickup lines?
    • 70 Metascore

    Makes hoops look like the sexiest game in town.

    "Chocolat" was just a warmup for the stunning display of the male form against National Geographic settings in her new Beau Travail.

    • 88 Jami Bernard
    The inexplicably terrifying ending is good for a month's worth of nightmares -- no small thing for a movie in such a saturated field.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    Gives moviegoers a funny, observant, evanescent approach to the mysteries of human desire.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    Bernie Mac gives surprising wisdom and heart - along with the laughs - to what could have been just another generic baseball comedy.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    Linklater's ravishing new movie represents a bold leap into the possibilities of technology.
    • 81 Metascore

    In this cross between film noir and melodrama, there's lust, need, camp and betrayal.

    • 88 Jami Bernard
    It's not just a movie about an underdog who fights the odds, it's about following one's heart -- despite the obstacles.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    The performance of the movie is Liev Schreiber as Shaw, a man howlingly uncomfortable in his own skin.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    The plot is intricate and tight. The preamble is a bit challenging to sort out. But the movie's engine is the relationships and the characters' inner lives, all of it boiling with emotional intensity.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    Clever, buoyant and surprisingly human.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    The feel-good movie of the summer. And the song this pimp works up, about how hard it is to manage a stable of ho's, is catchy and moving.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    No matter which floor you're on, the huge cast is extraordinary, and Altman gives the actors free rein to bring their characters to life despite such close quarters.

    • 88 Jami Bernard
    A sublimely uplifting movie.
    • 86 Metascore

    Noir has never been this bright.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    A great divorce movie. It's also one of the canniest comedies ever made about a certain kind of literary pretension.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    Life-affirming story of love, kinship and sacrifice.
    • 79 Metascore

    The same audience that loves "March of the Penguins" will eat up this beautifully told, gorgeously shot story of a grieving boy trying to return his pet cheetah to the wilds of South Africa.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Jami Bernard
    Feels like an old-fashioned movie in the way it deals with bold sacrifices made in the name of love, while its setting and chary view of the era's political machinations mark it as distinctly modern.
