    All the paraphernalia so important to the image of the Reich, particularly the uniforms, are painstakingly rendered, bringing a heightened sense of realism to what might otherwise have been a romantic coming-of-age tale.

    Stylish, well acted drama.

    South African director Mark Bamford's sweet-natured ensemble film doesn't shy away from addressing issues of racism -- both black and white.

    The movie's is really good, clean fun that's fine for slightly older kids and a lot of fun for adults.

    Lucas rarely breaks his glower to express anything other than tough determination. It's an attitude that's clearly modeled on that of storied Nicks' coach Pat Riley, who, it so happens, played for Kentucky that now legendary final game.

    Chernick may not answer every question about this beguiling and enigmatic film, but you wouldn't want it to: Mystery is an essential part of the Barney experience.

    Boorman's original script is razor sharp and very funny, and Gleeson's portrayal is nothing short of brilliant
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Hopkins plays "Hopkins," and the buff, terribly miscast Gyllenhaal will be convincing only to viewers who've never set foot on a university campus. What makes it worth seeing, however, is the extraordinary chemistry between the atypically raw and unguarded Paltrow and Davis, a fabulously talented actress once again testing her range with a performance unlike any she's given in the past.

    • 75 Ken Fox
    An intelligent, imaginative children's adventure refreshingly free of rapping cartoon animals, fart jokes and mind-numbing special effects.

    Dreams With Sharp Teeth Or, Why is Harlan Ellison so gosh darned angry?
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    It honestly delivers the goods without all the preachy moralizing about violent entertainment and cultural ruin.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Works best as an illustration of the way conspiracy theories serve to weave threads of order, however fantastic, during moments of incomprehensible upheaval.
    • 58 Metascore

    Occasionally overrated as a writer but consistently underrated as a director, Towne does a marvelous job resurrecting all the seedy jumble of the long-gone Bunker Hill neighborhood.
    • 69 Metascore

    John Curran's pretty melodrama rubs off a few of the barbed edges from W. Somerset Maugham's 1925 novel about love and infidelity in a time of cholera, but no matter: the centerpiece is Naomi Watts' outstanding portrayal of an adulteress redeemed.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    It's a thoughtful and ultimately chilling take on a tragedy that still has the power to disturb and divide.
    • 73 Metascore

    Zhang's film is sweet and sentimental nearly to a fault; luckily, he's such a master, you'll hardly notice how shamelessly you're being manipulated.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    While at times overly familiar, the film never feels self-mocking.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    You just know that any film that opens with Nietzsche's aphorism about hope being an evil that only prolongs the torments of man isn't going to a comedy.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    It's both very funny and very scary, and never descends to the level of spoof.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Dark, dank and violent, filled with terrifying scenes in which exploited children are beaten, shot or starving to death. In other words, it's just as Dickens wrote.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Heartfelt and often very funny.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Despite its flaws, the film has the same dreamy, romantic melancholy that distinguishes Wong's best films.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    A drum-tight, extremely grisly thriller. And odd as it may sound given the subject matter, it's also surprisingly funny.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Weerasethakul mixes fact, fiction and filmmaking into a blend that's intriguingly obtuse, yet surprisingly revelatory.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    The morbid theme notwithstanding, this is by no means a downbeat film, and it ends with the rather hopeful thought that for every disaster there's also a chance for survival.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Silly but endearing comedy.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    What the film lacks in artistry it makes up for in commitment.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    Stylish and surprisingly effective thriller.
    • 86 Metascore

    British director Shane Meadows' strongest film to date is also his most personal: A stylish fictionalization of his own wayward youth, spent among a group of working-class skinheads in Thatcher's England.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Ken Fox
    It was really no bigger than a beach ball, weighed about as much as a full-grown man and it beeped. And aside from transmitting a radio signal and accidentally opening a few automatic garage doors, it didn't really do anything except orbit the globe once every 96 minutes.
