    If you haven't seen his (Crudup's) work before, Jesus' Son could be the one that makes you his biggest disciple.

    The most poignant (if hard-hitting) depiction of childhood to show up this year.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 85 Kevin Maynard
    A uniquely personal, vibrant mosaic of the American dream, and like a dream, it evaporates beautifully before our eyes.

    There are only a handful of great music documentaries ... but Temple's film deserves a place in the canon.

    A hilarious and utterly faboo documentary...you'll be begging for more.

    It's the sum of things not spoken, things too painful to express, that's the heart of this quietly moving drama.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Kevin Maynard
    An exhilarating and at times operatic film.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Kevin Maynard
    Captures the emptiness of small-time lives as evocatively as Peter Bogdonavich's "Last Picture Show."
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Kevin Maynard
    The man (Apted) behind the excellent "7 Up" series has put a human face to science, making the seemingly abstruse both accessible and easily relatable.

    This is certainly the best studio movie of the new year to date, and Douglas might even be remembered at next year's Oscars.

    Best of all is the supporting performance of The Jackie Robinson Steppers Marching Band, a real group of high-school musicians in which the three girls all perform.

    Goran Visnjic is such a sensitive, non-menacing gentleman that any woman would want him as her own personal blackmailer.

    Optimistically explores how vastly different people can come together, and how any journey is more about what happens along the way than simply getting from one place to another.

    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Maynard
    A sentimental slice of 1950s Italian-American life that doesn't soft-pedal its characters' simmering prejudices within their insulated community, or pander to their dreams of getting out.

    This one's still worth checking out -- especially for the naturalistic performances by the feisty Touly and the rest of the young cast.

    Though similar thematically to "Anywhere But Here," Tumbleweeds is a breath of fresh air that busts the cliches of dysfunctional mother-daughter sagas.

    Agnes Browne hums along as a series of pleasant vignettes, only frantically shifting to a single narrative track in its third act for the sake of an unbelievably upbeat ending.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Maynard
    A riveting, unsentimental tragedy of unrequited love.
    • 55 Metascore

    Smith and Fitzgerald are funny, feisty, poignant, and altogether realistic. Will they end up lovers, friends, side-by-side corpses? Their sharp performances make Series 7 as frighteningly addictive as crack, or even "Survivor."

    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Maynard
    A literate, dialogue-driven treat delivered by a cast that truly savors the script's wicked wit.

    This is such seductive entertainment that you might as well stop grousing and give in.

    It's such a sensory experience; in its best moments, the film washes over you like a fever dream.

    A meticulously mounted film that retains the author's ambiguous characterizations yet is still emotionally accessible.
    • Mr. Showbiz
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Kevin Maynard
    Too poignant and funny to be dismissed.
    • Mr. Showbiz

    A gritty, well-acted urban drama with lots of humanity.

    While both leads are appealing enough, it's the stuff on the sidelines that keeps All Over the Guy entertaining.

    It's Zahn's heartbreaking performance that drives Riding in Cars with Boys.

    It's a pleasure to watch these unhurried, character-driven vignettes when such great actors are anchoring them.

    Not all of the jokes hit, but enough of them do that anyone who's ever filed, collated, or played Mixmaster DJ with the transcribing machine will find cathartic giggles in this breakout debut.

    Though unflinching in its savagery, Amores Perros is always compulsive viewing.
