    Philosophy and religion become entangled with love and sex in Karin Albou's intelligent, sensual drama.

    The story that first-time feature filmmaker Curry tells is extremely compelling, but where he really scores is in addressing politics and race in a way that allows events to speak for themselves.

    A ticking clock scenario and a terrific performance by Willis as an alcoholic NYPD detective make up for the film's occasional missteps and some strange pop culture references.

    Both acidly funny and very moving.

    A pointed and nicely observed screenplay that guides us on an often funny journey through familiar terrain made fresh by their off-center sensibility and three fine performances.

    An exhilarating story of loyalty and perseverance, The Heart of the Game succeeds as both inspiration and social commentary.

    Has a return-to-innocence sweetness that recalls some of the work of another of its executive producers - Steven Spielberg. Kids may grow up too fast today to embrace the film's familiar message of the virtues of an unhurried adolescence, but it's nice to be reminded of the possibility.

    An intimate drama that views the deterioration of a relationship from the inside out. Moving from summer through fall and concluding in winter, it's minimalist cinema that turns on subtle emotion rather than narrative and demands the audience's full attention.

    Much of the credit for the movie succeeding goes to Thornton. In his able hands, Farmer is not so much someone who simply has faith in what he is doing but a man who believes with incontrovertible knowledge of what can be accomplished.

    Scurlock does well to counter the more dire aspects of the film with a razor-sharp sense of humor.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Crust
    A spellbinding, intelligent thriller that takes its time to get where it's going but is well worth the trip.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Crust
    Nonprofessional actors Boidin and Leroux deliver intense performances which shoulder the emotional weight of the film.

    As compelling as the music and concert footage is, it is the vitality of the performers as characters that enables the movie to transcend the music documentary genre.

    Despite the grim Cold War environment, Schlöndorff blends, mostly successfully, goofiness and melodrama into the overall social realist tone.

    Thankfully for audiences, 11th Hour is not without hope. The filmmakers save the most exhilarating portion for last when they ask what's being done about the problems.

    To packs the moments of contemplation with as much suspense as the action sequences and is a master of ratcheting up tension through small details.

    An enchanting tale of friendship and evolvingrelationships, The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep" engagingly grafts coming-of-age movie chestnuts onto Scottish folklore.

    Music may be Honeydripper's most indelible element and Sayles and longtime collaborator, composer Mason Daring, seamlessly incorporate several original songs alongside the soundtrack's period tunes.
    • 66 Metascore

    The highly partisan Game Over ably illustrates the often-silly psychological gamesmanship that accompanies world-class chess and nearly catalogs enough circumstantial evidence against IBM to convict.

    If the film offers any lesson, it is that nirvana is not easily attainable, so there really are no shortcuts.

    Only 22 when he began shooting the film, Greenebaum displays a prodigious understanding of the treatment of the elderly in contemporary America.

    Features some charming songs by Carly Simon and is warmly animated so as to evoke nostalgia in parents.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Kevin Crust
    A sleek, effective entertainment that is a refreshing respite from the slick emptiness of recent American crime dramas.
    • 62 Metascore

    An impassioned plea for change, the film balances bleak, Dickensian conditions with details of a growing number of international programs designed to combat the epidemic.

    Chrystal unravels a bit toward the end as it becomes more fable-like, but the performances make it worthwhile.

    There is nothing extraordinary about the filmmaking, but Mashayekh's old-fashioned commitment to his and co-writer Belle Avery's story creates an overall satisfying experience.

    Through sensitive, in-depth profiles of four workers, Weisberg drives home the point that hard-working men and women with full-time jobs find themselves and their families trapped in a seemingly endless cycle of poverty.

    Brazilian Walter Salles, who previously directed the Oscar-nominated films "Central Station" and "The Motorcycle Diaries," guides this stylish remake through treacherous territory to create a distressing, subtly suspenseful film full of emotional resonance.

    Delightfully demented.

    It plays less creepy on-screen than it sounds, at least in part because Herzlinger is an extremely likable guy and he goes to great lengths to avoid appearing to be a stalker.
