    It can be funny, but the humor is too often based in stereotypical perceptions of Asians (they're short, they're laughably polite, they eat weird food), and Coppola shamelessly invites us to laugh along with Murray's character, who, believe it or not, thinks it's hilarious when his hosts get their "r"s and "l"s switched.

    If you have the stomach - or the Dramamine - it's a touching, humorous take on Jewish life in contemporary Argentina.

    Simple but deeply touching documentary.

    They're answers that will either earn your respect, or further damn him as the architect of an American nightmare.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    A bold, painful memoir that finds an innovative middle-ground between conventional documentary and a homemade, home-movie collage.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    On the surface, nothing really happens, but to call it a nonevent would be to miss the point entirely.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    The writing is sharp and often blithely cynical, although not above using a shooting star to put a lump in the throat. The tone, however, is at times dangerously uncertain.

    • 60 Ken Fox
    Often thrilling, if overwhelmingly brutal, trio of interconnected short stories.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    The film is ridiculously overplotted, and very little of the plot serves any purpose other than to motivate what you can pretty well guess is going to happen from the outset.
    • 82 Metascore

    Stylized to the point of poetry.

    Beauchamp reconstructs the actual crime with disturbing immediacy, and his treatment of how Till's death galvanized a country makes this short film a good way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a crime that still has the power to outrage.

    Tom Gilroy's debut feature is a little obvious, but it's an excellent showcase for the criminally underused Ned Beatty.
    • 79 Metascore

    The result is a confused mess of mixed signals that substitutes a brutal climax for any kind of satisfactory resolution. Parents should be warned about the frequent gunfire and a grisly death by hanging.

    Handsomely appointed and faultlessly acted, but no more alive than a well-dressed corpse.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    Brilliantly acted and lugubriously paced, Liv Ullmann's fourth feature as director — the second written by her mentor, Ingmar Bergman — will no doubt be manna to those who miss the brilliant acting and lugubrious pace that characterized Bergman's late-period films.

    Thirty years down the line, not everyone looks as they once did, so even fans will have trouble putting names to aged faces. Newcomers, meanwhile, will feel hopelessly shut out.

    Swinton lends Margaret an air of grace under pressure, and fleshing out feelings of domestic dissatisfaction -- a key element that otherwise remains buried in the subtext.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    She's an adventurous, occasionally reckless filmmaker who deploys a full arsenal of cinematic flourishes, but Lemmons' lack of restraint gets in the way of her storytelling.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    Hrebejk's film remains clear-eyed and satisfyingly complex right to the bitter end.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    Beesley's film is perfectly in sync with the Lips' unique vision.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    A superb performance from Torreton, easily one of the finest actors working in France today.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    A smart but disappointingly conventional portrait of an artist who had little use for convention.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    The power of an otherwise carefully crafted film is undone by risky and not altogether successful casting.

    This curiously empty film was awarded the Jury Prize at the 1997 Cannes film festival.

    The film is marvelously acted -- the Bolger sisters are a delight -- and Sheridan captures New York City's crazy energy as only an newcomer can.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    This gentle and somewhat slow moving romantic fable has a quiet sweetness all its own, and is thankfully free of the inscrutable ponderousness that often infuses the films of Yektapanah's mentors.

    • 60 Ken Fox
    Kurosawa's farewell film is full of sentiment, tears, toasts and songs.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    The soundtrack (Heart, ELO, Todd Rundgren, and an original score by the French duo Air) is spot-on and the costume design (pukka shells and knee-socks) is hideously accurate.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    The whole lighter-than-air lark whizzes by like a brisk, kandy-kolored dream of the 1960s, flavored by a Saul Bass inspired credit sequence; a slinky, Henry Mancini-esque score; and a stunning array of period sets and evocative locales.

    A little too derivative of much better movies to succeed on its own. However, in the context of recent Chinese movies, it's a pretty amazing piece of work.
