    Like the painter, it's painstakingly serious about what it's up to.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Takes a while to arrive at what it has to say, but some of the performances kept me occupied in the meantime.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Nicely acted and inflected, this is a very fresh piece of work.
    • 59 Metascore

    A must-see.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    A fascinating humanist experiment and investigation in its own right, full of warmth and humor as well as mystery.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Poorly acted, over-the-top, and generally out-of-control bloodbath.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Documentary filmmaker Chuck Workman has a slick and entertaining way of stitching together old footage and practically no analytical or historical insight at all.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Fair amount of grit and charm.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    May have some of the trappings of an exotic thriller, but it's basically a character study.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    What's most conspicuously missing is the kind of background information needed to assess many of Eichmann's statements.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    The plot turns on the complicated lives of the daughters, who are played by Sabine Azema, Emmanuelle Beart, and Charlotte Gainsbourg; they, Fabian, and Rich are the main reasons for seeing this picture.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    A lot more imaginative and entertaining than one might have thought possible, a feast for the eye and mind.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Humorless, lugubrious, and interminable.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    You feel it in your nervous system before you get a chance to reflect on its meaning.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    The eroticism is powerful, and the documentary candor and directness of the sex scenes make this well worth seeing.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Has the expressionistic simplicity of Kurosawa's other late films.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 10 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    An extravagant waste of resources.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    This sharp, convincing, and utterly contemporary political film calls to mind some of Ken Loach's work, full of passion as well as precision.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    A fleet, enjoyable Jackie Chan romp.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    This movie really belongs to Baye and Lopez, both so skillful that they almost make you forget that what you're watching is close to a stunt--one oddly evocative of Graham Greene in its doomed romanticism but at times also minimalist to a fault.

    Somewhere in writer-director Giuseppe Tornatore's overstyled movie, about a 12-year-old boy (Sulfaro) during the Italian fascist period who has the hots for a mistreated war widow (Belluci), is a pretty good short story about the fickleness of community and the cruelty of gossip struggling to get out.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    An impressive piece of filmmaking, with lively and suggestive depictions of pre- and postrevolutionary Cuba (shot in Mexico).
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Carax has a wonderful cinematic eye and a personal feeling for editing rhythms, and his sense of overripeness and excess virtually defines him.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Yang seems to miss nothing as he interweaves shifting viewpoints and poignant emotional refrains.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 10 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Misguided version of one of the Bard's best comedies.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    The players and their stories are as wonderful as the music, and the filmmaking is uncommonly sensitive and alert.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    This is thoughtful nihilist provocation at best.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Foreigners who argue that Americans are Neanderthal savages can point to this movie as persuasive evidence.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    Peter Hyams, a pretty good cinematographer but a mediocre director, goes to work on a script by Andrew W. Marlowe that's designed to carry us from one bit of hyperbole to the next.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Jonathan Rosenbaum
    I enjoyed this while it lasted, especially for the cast.
