    Rapturously elegant and deeply sexy in a deliciously restrained way. One of the most romantic movies I have ever seen, right up there with "Brief Encounter"and "Casablanca."

    Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.

    The latest episode of this ongoing masterpiece of reality TV -- which every seven years revisits a group of English people first interviewed as 7-year-olds in 1964 -- is every bit as enthralling as the earlier ones.

    Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.

    The breathtaking visual and aural restoration by Coppola and Murch makes the film's original glories even more intense than you remember them.

    It's hard to remember a film that mixes disparate, delicate ingredients with the subtlety and virtuosity of Sofia Coppola's brilliant The Virgin Suicides.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Foreman
    An extraordinary experience: an original and brilliant combination of comedy, action and sophisticated political comment -- the best American movie of the year thus far.

    It ranks among Robert Altman's best work ever, and that its many satisfactions derive in large part from a superbly written screenplay by Julian Fellowes that has no equal this year.

    Sheer delight. An ensemble comedy-drama that recalls Robert Altman's best work.

    You have never seen a movie like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because there has never been a movie like it.

    Powerful, provocative and often surprisingly funny, this may be the year's outstanding documentary.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    The marvelous Burtonic gothic/nightmare production design -- scenery, weaponry, costumes, etc. constantly pleases the eye without ever distracting you from the plot.
    • 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.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Refreshing and surprising, the way independent movies are supposed to be.

    Revels in the sensual pleasure of music while capturing brilliantly the tension that grips any theater company before the curtain goes up.

    An ideal antidote to the big-budget bores that studios put out in late summer, The Tao of Steve is a charming, funny and refreshingly smart Gen-X romantic comedy in the tradition of "When Harry Met Sally" - with the bonus of an engagingly laid-back Southwestern flavor.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 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.

    A remarkable accomplishment. It takes one of the century's vast tragedies...and makes it heart-rendingly real and intimate.

    A crowd-pleasing ensemble piece, whose story goes exactly where you want it to.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    This bizarre, original and brilliantly crafted documentary about the Sex Pistols is funny and at times moving -- despite all the ugliness and stupidity it depicts.

    • 57 Metascore

    A delightful, fresh dark comedy.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Cheerful, slightly cheesy entertainment that uses the latest special-effects techniques to breathe life into a venerable film tradition.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Lacks the humor and charm that fills the book and makes it so much more than a catalog of suffering.

    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.

    For some reason, the people who make modern musicals don't like to let you watch dancers dance -- there are still too few moments when you get to enjoy choreography from a dancer's hands to her feet.
    • 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.

    A haunting, superbly made film. But it's also an unrelentingly sad and depressing experience.

    Vastly superior to the small and independent films that have come out during the last six months.
    • New York Post

    A reminder of just how good Hollywood storytelling can be.

    It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.
