    Innovative sounds and striking visuals combine to form an exquisite cinematic work.

    The sheer size of the production dwarfs the human drama.

    Ranks among the best films ever made about the acting profession.

    On a miniscule budget, Ghobadi conveys the terror of war, while the beautifully edited sequence in which Iranian villagers make bricks resembles nothing so much as a choreographed dance number.

    • 80 Ken Fox
    Resembles an Impressionist masterpiece come to life, and ends with a tremendously moving acceptance of art and mortality.

    Nearly 75 years after the fact, the matter still hasn't given up all its secrets, but Denis' film comes close to a definitive, deeply disturbing account.

    Barak Goodman and Daniel Anker have done a tremendous job of sorting the facts from a tangle of fictions, and include perspectives from a wide variety of experts and testimonies from a surprising number of surviving eyewitnesses. Together, they do the whole, horrible episode justice, something awfully hard to come by in the state of Alabama in 1931.

    Bardem's performance is simply shattering.

    Martel can barely contain her disgust, and like Bunuel before her, she knows just when to cut the laughs and go straight for the throat.

    Throughout, the notion that hip-hop is much more than rapping is a persistent theme, and anyone seeking a solid introduction -- or re-introduction -- to that ever vibrant culture shouldn't miss it.

    Jiang draws a great deal of humor from the situation, but the film inevitably explodes in terrible violence.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    His (Finkiel) ability to control economical dialogue with subtle but unusually powerful images -- haunted faces peering out from behind foggy bus windows; train tracks that once carried other passengers to a death camp -- lend this quiet, unforgettable film an uncanny power.

    Each frame is exquisitely framed, the acting is superb -- Abedini deserves to be a star -- and the impermanence of the lives of displaced Afghans is hauntingly expressed.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Wickedly funny, deeply disturbing, live-action retelling of an old Czech folktale.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    It's never dull -- beautifully acted and handsomely shot in sepia-toned Cinemascope.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Expansive and undeniably brilliant.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    A bold, remarkable film.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Sweet, melancholy comedy; it's ineffable charm lies entirely in the delivery.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Not many films have the power to change how one sees other people, but this remarkable anthology of loosely connected shorts from writer-director David Riker just might.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    An enthusiastic recommendation.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    A wildly entertaining detective thriller that succeeds entirely on its own terms.

    • 80 Ken Fox
    This film represents a perfect match of filmmaker and material. Akerman's fondness for long, static takes and circular, recurring dialogue perfectly suits the maddening repetitions that set the tone of Proust's darkest work.

    • 80 Ken Fox
    With consummate grace and exceptional style, Terence Davies transformed Edith Wharton's caustic tragedy of manners into a somber, languid dream.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    From the ravishing landscape photography to the exquisite costume design, the entire film is a stunning visual experience; rarely since Hollywood's golden age has the genre been so well served.

    Frei assembles a fascinating profile of a deeply humanistic artist who, in spite of all that he's witnessed, remains surprisingly idealistic, and retains an extraordinary faith in the ability of images to communicate the truth of the world around him.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    This tightly structured, often exciting film is among the boldest in a series of increasingly explicit movies.

    Newcomer Cassidy is excellent, and Hoskins gives a flawless performance.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Given the number of characters involved and the fact that the film flashes back and forth over a 40-year period, the film flows beautifully, thanks in large part to excellent casting and Kate Williams's fluid editing.
    • 82 Metascore

    It's a shocking story, made all the more so by the film's final revelation, an outrageous allegation no one even bothers to deny.

    Thrilling, heart-wrenching tale of the real-life incredible journey.
