    Ride it out, and you will find the rewards modest but meaningful.

    The best that can be said of the men in Coline Serreau's Chaos is that some of them are pimps.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    An invitation to see something a little less pretty, and potentially more enduring.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    fully devotes itself to painting a family portrait seldom allowed such rich cinematic detail.

    Lively and beautiful filmmaking. It may leave you scratching your head, but it shouldn't leave you cold.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    As rich and literary a work as you might expect.

    These children are indeed the faces of war. It's just harder to recognize them because they're the ones someone cared enough to save.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    The film means to provoke a closer look at the faces of good and evil. It questions whether we really live in a world that can be divided neatly into black hats and white hats.

    If there's one image that sums up the filmmaking style of Takashi Miike, it's the close-up of a bubbling hot pot on the family dinner table.

    What's unique about this documentary is that it grips history with both hands, shakes it, examines it, and exits with the entire wrinkled contents bravely in tow.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    It is at least an "experience" that has to be labeled exhilarating.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    Actually an above-average farce, at least as featherweight chick flicks go.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    A poignant, all-too-common tale of casual abuse in a workplace that is candidly labeled "better than most."
    • 67 Metascore

    Meier’s soft touch with the offbeat material is surprisingly mature, to the point of maybe being a bit too reserved.

    Kings of Pastry, goes inside an intense event that few Americans know much about - a kind of tradesmen's Olympics.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Janice Page
    It needs only to entertain. And that it does thoroughly, leaving us both charmed and enriched without feeling very preached at. Praise be.

    Where Wiseman excelled in respecting the broad rhythms and pure storytelling of the ring, Chang's new documentary focuses on the stories of three boxers and weaves them into a compelling narrative that rivals anything Hollywood could script.

    Knowlton has landed on four stories that deserve to be told, and she's told them in a straightforward way that gets the job done, with obvious dedication and love.

    What really makes 'The Warrior worthwhile is its indomitable soul.

    Assassin is funnier and less awkward than her last concert film, 2004's ''CHO Revolution," but nowhere near as consistently gut busting as 2002's ''Notorious C.H.O." or (first and still best) 2000's ''I'm the One That I Want."
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Janice Page
    Unusually compelling, even if it's treacly enough to be "The Chorus" in goose step.
    • 68 Metascore

    The film is at its best in Utah, both because in David Gribble's exhilarating cinematography we finally get to feel the full power and intoxication of the sport.

    Wolf Creek is ultimately all about the torture and the trauma. Happy holidays.

    If ''Sean" was about conviction and revolution, Following Sean is about ambivalence and resignation. In either case it's pretty easy for a funny-provocative kid to stand out.

    The debut live-action feature of Australian animator Sarah Watt has several other things to recommend it as well, including a black-humored screenplay, realistic performances, eye-catching artwork, and a few creative turns on some well-worn themes.
    • 72 Metascore

    A semiserious documentary about a cult of performance art that until recently was never meant to be taken seriously.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Janice Page
    There's an honest, unfiltered quality to what you see and hear.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Janice Page
    Though it never rises to its full potential as a film, still offers a great deal of insight into the female condition and the timeless danger of emotions repressed.
    • 58 Metascore

    The movie's heart is in the right place, but all its messages of tolerance might resonate better if the Spanish-accented pirate didn't get drawn with a gold tooth and the turban-wearing Khalil wasn't an opportunistic rug merchant.

    Maybe Tattoo is creepy and stylized enough to pull you along anyway, but if you like your thrillers to dig below the familiar epidermis, look elsewhere.
