    [A] bold and brilliant rendering of Henry James' masterpiece.

    It may sound as if first-time director White is having his fun at the expense of introverted, asocial people who prefer the company of cats and dogs and gravitate toward animal-rights activism because the very idea of dealing with human problems requires an empathy they can't muster. But empathy is exactly what makes the film work.

    A sad and sometimes funny tale of Alzheimer's, love and loss.

    Lawrence delves deep into the moral dilemma at the heart of Carver's deceptively simple tale. By deliberately making the young woman in the river aboriginal, the film also opens up yet another dimension in the reaction to the men's inaction: Would they have acted any differently had the murder victim been white?

    Three Belgian clowns wrote and directed this sly, winsome tale of one woman's quest for her destiny in the polar seas after an absurd but life-altering accident reveals the emptiness of her mundane, middle-class life.

    Tsai finds great beauty in streets of Kuala Lumpur particularly at night, making this gorgeous film one that should be seen on a large screen in the total darkness of a theater.

    Focusing strictly on stripped-down performances of great music and the charming chemistry between the two leads, it's a perfectly realized yet unassuming movie that deserves to find a big audience.

    With very little dialogue and lingering shots of the landscape -- always a very important visual trope in Dumont's deep-psyche explorations -- the film is nevertheless tighter and, clocking in at under 90 minutes, relatively brief.

    • 88 Ken Fox
    British actor Timothy Spall gives a shattering performance as Albert Pierrepoint.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Wonderfully droll, Cannes Camera d'Or winner.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Remarkable and evenhanded film.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    A heartfelt sleeper from screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and director Guy Ferland.

    Whether you conclude that this project is a brilliant hoax that exposes how the rapid transition from communism to a free market economy has created an ad addicted, consumer-mad culture in the Czech Republic, or simply a cruel joke, one thing is undeniable. It's a fascinating account.

    Though absurdly criticized for being too "white" to play Mariane Pearl, Jolie gives an excellent performance. She portrays Mariane as gutsy, smart, passionate and highly efficient.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    A clever, ingeniously animated film filled with many shining moments.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    To better capture the extremity of Dengler's ordeal, Bale once again underwent the kind of dramatic weight loss that shocked audiences of "The Machinist," but he's downright plump next to the emaciated Davies, who looks like Charles Manson in the end stages of a hunger strike.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Unexpectedly touching -- odd-couple buddy comedy.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    An uncanny and thoroughly creepy nip-yuck nightmare about plastic surgery and identity.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Unexpectedly poignant documentary.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    The anger that fuels Ferguson's film is felt in nearly every frame.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Teenage angst and adolescent agony are the stuff of sharp, observant comedy this quirky, wonderfully dry first fiction feature from documentary filmmaker Jeffrey Blitz (Spellbound).
    • 62 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    The theme song, a wonderful Portuguese version of Bread's soft-rock classic "Everything I Own," is by Dinah, a long-forgotten Brazilian singing sensation of the 1970s who deserves to be better remembered.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    The one film to see on this most crucial subject.

    Zombie delivers a scary horror movie immediately recognizable as his own -- something that will come as a welcome relief to fans who've diligently sat through seven "Halloween" sequels in hopes of one day reliving the original's terrifying magic.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    The nerve-racking wait at the Contention hotel is no longer the film's centerpiece, but the deeper characterization gives Bale an opportunity to once again sink his teeth into a complex role, and offers a reminder as to why the notoriously difficult Crowe is sometimes worth the trouble.

    The cumulative evidence that genocide could not have occurred without the cooperation of the German army is overwhelming.
    • 63 Metascore

    Wood is excellent, but this is a career highlight for Douglas. His depiction of the manic Charlie stays surprisingly grounded and prevents the story from being a naive celebration of mental illness as a kind of freedom that it so easily could have become.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    This gripping documentary sheds light on the frightening totality of Hitler's vision for a Germanic Europe, and the extent to which he and his Nazi thugs were no better than common thieves.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Flawed but refreshingly intelligent.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    It's a bit like a Chinese "Splendor In The Grass."
