    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    The movie that deserved to win the Oscar for foreign-language film, and one of the best movies ever made about life behind the Iron Curtain.

    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Isn't just scary, charming and delightfully unpredictable - it's also smarter and subtler than any new movie out there.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Uses the compelling true story of the triumph of the Enigma code-breakers as background for an invented but believable story of love, betrayal and heroism.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A remarkable accomplishment. It takes one of the century's vast tragedies...and makes it heart-rendingly real and intimate.
    • New York Post
    • 62 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A crowd-pleasing ensemble piece, whose story goes exactly where you want it to.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A reminder of just how good Hollywood storytelling can be.
    • New York Post
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Powerful, provocative and often surprisingly funny, this may be the year's outstanding documentary.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A delightful, fresh dark comedy.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A terrific work of political and social satire set in a Nebraska high school that has the intelligence of (the less coherent) "Rushmore," while painting a much darker picture of politics and human relationships.
    • New York Post
    • 55 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Vastly superior to the small and independent films that have come out during the last six months.
    • New York Post
    • 48 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Cheerful, slightly cheesy entertainment that uses the latest special-effects techniques to breathe life into a venerable film tradition.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Revels in the sensual pleasure of music while capturing brilliantly the tension that grips any theater company before the curtain goes up.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A haunting, superbly made film. But it's also an unrelentingly sad and depressing experience.
    • New York Post
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    An affectionate, often clever and unflaggingly funny satire.
    • New York Post
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.
    • New York Post
    • 43 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    It's an even rarer pleasure to see a film that combines exciting action with a smart, well-informed script and vivid yet restrained performances.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A stunning achievement, every bit the equal of the classic moun taineering book which inspired it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Far more interesting and intelligent than anything coming out of the studios. It fairly brims with superb performances by a terrific cast - you simply can't take your eyes off the female leads, Edie Falco and Angela Bassett.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Longwinded, slow-starting but moving film.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    It's often hilarious, and there is lots of the zippy, apparently improvised dialogue that made "Swingers" such a pleasure.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    But it's more than a crowd-pleaser shot at spectacular Rocky mountain locations -- it's almost revolutionary.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A clever, funny, extended joke about ruthless directors, method actors and the power of the cinema.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Despite many flaws...Romance is unquestionably an important film.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Compelling but self-undermining documentary.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Visually accomplished and wonderfully acted.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Hilarious, acidic Brit comedy.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    It's clever, cool fun and it looks great.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Shaft is what summer action flicks should be... thanks to superior writing, acting and direction.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A triumph of intelligent adaptation. It shows again how well the great Victorian storyteller translates to film, and makes enjoyable use of a generally first-rate cast.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Downbeat and at times strangely slow-moving despite all its beautifully shot high-speed ambulance rides.
    • New York Post
