    You could hardly ask for a more beautiful vision of souls in transit.

    Rohmer has a genius for taking a seemingly mundane situation and slowly tightening the screws.

    The journey is often challenging, but the rewards—heady, emotional, provocative and invigorating—are endless.

    The real drama in Parnassus comes from the troupe of sideshow performers, led by a terrifically morbid Christopher Plummer.

    Spelling may not be Quentin Tarantino’s forte, but his grasp of language (both verbal and visual) is peerless.

    What follows is pulp made near-profound through director Jonathan Mostow’s sure-handed guidance.

    West is far more adept at and interested in sustaining an unrelentingly ominous mood than in executing the genre-required spook shocks.

    The unspoken theme underlying Dickens’s prose--that the money-grubbing Ebenezer is conversing with semblances of his own self--finds near-perfect cinematic expression through Carrey’s efforts.

    It's a contemporary movie musical that makes you feel genuinely sky-high.

    It's easy to think of comics, especially time-tested ones like Rivers, as mechanical laugh-generators. Stern and Sundberg allow her to reveal the deep-rooted humanity of those ever-present quips, and the effect is humbling.

    The tone this time out is primarily comic.

    Ferrara’s unconventional methods only manage to serve Chelsea on the Rocks, his loving portrait of Manhattan’s boho landmark, the Chelsea Hotel.

    It would be risible if Ozon’s hand didn’t remain so steady and confident throughout, all the way up to a complicatedly upbeat conclusion that recreates the Christian Annunciation with the straightest of faces.

    Polanski has made a genre piece with a verve and vitality that’s in sadly short supply.

    The running time may make you blanch, but Connie Field’s seven-part documentary about the history and eventual dissolution of South African apartheid is well worth the commitment.

    What emerges is an illuminating, though terribly dismaying, portrait of the War on Terror’s lasting effects. Whether one retreats or steps out defiantly, there is no sanctuary.

    Director Christian Carion (Merry Christmas) establishes a low-key yet threatening atmosphere right from the start, and gets terrific performances from Kusturica and Canet.

    It will test your faith in humanity, but Hersonski's film is nonetheless a brilliant reminder of the importance of bearing witness.

    Thompson's imagination-she's also the screenwriter-knows no bounds, and she does a brilliant job of connecting the fantastical elements to the sobering realities of life during wartime.

    It isn't the first time death has figured in an Allen movie, but the way he grapples with it here (leaving each character at a moment of irresolution comparable to staring down the man with the scythe) is much more potent and direct.

    The first part of Deathly Hallows has plenty of invigorating imagery alongside the pro forma narrative elements.
    • 57 Metascore

    Taken on its own fun-over-philosophy terms, this is an exercise in tone-shifting virtuosity.

    Chomet builds this beguiling symphony of sadness to a poignant finale that does ample justice to the many layers of Tati's tale, both in text and out.

    By the end, you feel curiously closer to the performer and her process without having any clue how you got there. It's exhilarating.

    You still leave hoping he ultimately found peace and enlightenment, two things he graciously gave to those of us who hung on his every word.

    Even the stoniest face will crack when Aladeen sums up our cultural moment in a rousing, uproarious climactic speech worthy of both Chaplin and Team America.

    Do you like movies about gladiators? Well, lend me your ears: The Eagle will more than gratify your sword-and-sandal cravings.

    Yun is quite simply spectacular as a woman who holds steadfastly on to her dignity and empathy, even in the face of unspeakable tragedy.

    This lifelong Tintin fan was more than pleased, even while having to acknowledge that the movie lacks the subtle state-of-the-world commentary that Hergé often smuggled into his creation.

    A movie with an unflinchingly tough heart.
