    Bowfinger's terrific set-pieces... more than make up for the odd weak moment or thin performance.

    It's frightening enough, to be sure, but too often it feels like a well-executed but rote exercise.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Powerful, important and refreshingly straightforward documentary.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    So filled with amusing, idiosyncratic touches and unexpectedly charming characters that you mostly don't mind its excesses.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    An unusually well-written and satisfying multilayered drama that conveys the feel of urban India with more vivid accuracy than anything made in the subcontinent in recent years.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    As a horror movie, even one inspired by the kitschy Hammer horror films of the 1950s, it's disappointing.

    Crimson Gold has been likened to an Iranian "Taxi Driver," but it's nothing of the sort, though it is powerful in a quiet, minimalist way.

    The thing that makes Haneke’s Code Unknown so enjoyable and effective is that that he says it in such a wonderfully restrained and light-handed yet suspenseful way.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A witty, well-acted, visually gorgeous ensemble drama.

    A poignant, graceful little film.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    So beautifully made (everything in it is understated except the gorgeous good looks of its stars) and turns out to have such real cumulative power that it is worth holding out to the end.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Structurally flawed, occasionally shlocky, but written with unusual intelligence and subtlety.
    • 84 Metascore

    Slight but affecting triptych.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    An uplifting, crowd-pleasing film in the tradition of "The Full Monty" that could easily win Oscar nominations for both its 11-year-old star, Jamie Bell, and first-time director, Stephen Daldry.

    The film is almost worth seeing just for the extraordinary scene in which a stark naked Mortimer has her movie star lover (Dermot Mulroney) deliver an exhaustive critique of her body's flaws.

    But it is Thurman who stands out, with a marvelous, full-blooded performance, her best in some time, as tragic Charlotte.

    A sweet, lushly photographed but occasionally slow film.
    • 57 Metascore

    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A real pleasure, a sweet, funny, ensemble comedy...utterly authentic.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Essential viewing for anyone who cares about American popular music and its roots.

    This oddly cheerful, decreasingly dark comedy actually works and can boast some of the most enjoyable performances of the year.

    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Isn't Allen's finest work by a long shot, but an undeniable part of its fascination is trying to figure out what -- if anything, even unconsciously -- he's trying to say about how he treated Farrow.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    It's a slow, exhaustive and exhausting process that takes a toll on the viewer, despite the intrinsic power of the underlying material.
