    The late King of Pop delivers.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    The cast is strong, and Damon is a dependable center for all this, a classic American good guy wanting to know what's rotten and why.

    Here, the actor (Di Niro) dials it down and wins us over.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Arnold generally steers clear of cinematic melodrama, and Jarvis infuses the entire film with the sort of kinetic spirit that heralds a new talent.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    At its best, this beautiful, off-the-cuff comedy-drama recalls John Cassavetes' shaggiest, most honest work.

    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    This quietly poetic little gem contains many beautiful things, not least of which is leading lady Zoe Kazan, who lets every scene billow and swirl around her effortlessly.

    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    In Rob Corddry's hilariously manic turn, it has the most memorable showcase for a goofball co-star since Michael Keaton in 1981's "Night Shift."
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    This macabre-yet-moving Argentinian drama from director Juan Jose Campanella is nuanced and full of intelligence and emotion; just when you think you have a bead on it, it gently swerves into richer places.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Perfect for families and exquisitely shot, this entry from the Disneynature division is even better and fresher than last year's "Earth."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Iron Man 2 sets gold standard for sequels thanks to Robert Downey Jr.'s Stark performance.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    The comedy of discomfort that runs through Cyrus is often about several things at once. But the most prevalent emotion in this quirky yet genuine movie is the awkwardness that comes with trying to fit into someone else's life.

    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    For the uninitiated, this fun French documentary detailing the camaraderie and division between filmmakers François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard reveals a time when "the cinema" was something to get excited about and literally fight over.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Every parent in New York should see this movie and then ask why, when solutions exist, our woefully broken school system has yet to be fixed.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Fast-moving, exciting and contains more twists than a tunnel under Checkpoint Charlie.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    To eavesdrop on Bernardo Bertolucci, Stephen Frears, Ken Loach and John Sayles, as they talk politics; David Lynch and Todd Haynes, discussing inspiration; and Catherine Breillat, Agnès Varda, Richard Linklater and Liliana Cavani as they riff on controversy and aspiration, even for a little while, is a real treat.

    There are suggestions to help us sleep more easily, but the point is to wake us up.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Moving, intelligent documentary.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    A kind of historical detective story made up of haunting montages, including a theater performance featuring a heartbroken musician that's absolutely chilling.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    The American, a movie as coiled as a snake and as still as a sleepy villa, is the rare grownup thriller that knows the link between peace and danger and the tension that comes from both.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Affleck keeps the film as fluid as the "Mystic River," and never forgets that Renner is his ace in the hole. The "Hurt Locker" star charges up every scene he's in with feral power, and is rewarded with one of the most exciting sequences seen in any action movie this decade.

    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Ferguson doesn't aim to entertain; he wants answers, and talks to many of the enabling weasels.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    There could have been more side trips on the road to self-discovery, but the plentiful lessons and derring-'do make Tangled a lock for playground pastimes. And maybe even some knotty parent-kid chats about finding your part in life.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    By far the most rousing, expertly cast movie this year, David O. Russell's movie takes a roundabout way of telling its true story.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Gibney puts mystery back into a story we thought we knew.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    A wonderfully entertaining, beautiful Western drama that lets the quirks of the genre gallop freely as it keeps a tight rein throughout.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    By the time Barney gets one final, heartbreaking chance to screw things up, this rich, satisfying film has you hooked.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    The man-versus-the-natural world story is in Weir's wheelhouse, and Harris and Farrell get into a scene-stealing duel. Worth the trek.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    Quiet, soulful and wrenching.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Joe Neumaier
    There's a wonderfully steely spine inside of Tom McCarthy'sWin Win," but it's hard to see at first because it's inside the doughy, everyman person of Paul Giamatti.
