    Simultaneously modern and yet gorgeously primitive with its budget sets and simple but influential score, this is not just a film re-release but a film event.

    She (Cho) can tell a joke, mimic, offer commentary, play cute, play ugly and be so hilariously absurd that tears will run down your cheeks.

    It's a remarkable, thoughtful achievement that will make you want to watch it twice. You should.

    Can a film so expertly capture the odious and bitter that it becomes deliciously, disgustingly beautiful? Yes, if that film is 1957's Sweet Smell of Success.

    Daring work of genius.

    Filled with wonderful performances, especially by Hedaya and Walsh, Blood Simple remains a tight, beautifully ugly, neo-noir classic.

    A witty, frightening, well-acted picture with near-perfect cinematic timing.

    Though Michael Winterbottom's Wonderland appears as gritty as they come, it uncommonly has a romantic heart.

    One of the purest instances of indie cinema this year. "Pure" meaning that in every aspect of filmmaking and intent this picture is peerless, so truly real, funny, poignant and sexy that it almost feels like a watershed cinematic moment.

    No matter how many times you've seen it, you marvel at how terrifying, gorgeous and surreal the jungle, the yellow napalm and, finally, the disturbed face of Martin Sheen lying under a swirling fan appear on the large screen. This is indeed, a dream.

    Unafraid of walking the fine line between the repellent and the human, Shallow Hal is wickedly funny but heartfelt.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Kim Morgan
    Isn't just a horror film, but an American classic. Watch again and reflect for days after -- at your own risk.

    The best-looking, best-scripted and funniest of Smith's pictures, it's also Smith's sharpest.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 100 Kim Morgan
    Utterly thrilling and enthralling, a commercial film that paces itself wonderfully, never allowing the action or romance to outweigh its story and characters. For mainstream adventure fare, that's quite an accomplishment.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Kim Morgan
    It easily is the most beautiful picture released in America so far this year, perhaps one of the most beautiful films ever made.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Kim Morgan
    Builds into a moment of such gorgeous rocking that you truly lose yourself in some musical otherworld you never dreamed you'd reach in current films.

    With its eye-popping color, bold personality and snazzy tunes, Chicago is a breathtaking experience.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 100 Kim Morgan
    It's a heap of contradictions that will leave your head spinning.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    A hilarious, sad and sometimes-inspiring documentary directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, the film is an all-out Tammy valentine -- campy, dramatic and, of course, makeup-smeared. And better than any melodrama you'll see this year.

    • 72 Metascore

    Once you lose yourself in Ruiz's stunning achievement -- a wonderfully acted, beautifully realized vision of Proust -- you'll be enchanted.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    It's almost numbingly sad, but you won't regret watching -- and you'll surely never forget it.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    Aronson's intriguing, complicated and well-filmed documentary will keep you talking for days.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 61 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    Beautifully acted, the film is touchingly human and, thankfully, devoid of any vapid, ironic kitsch.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    A profoundly anxious picture that from its first frame holds you, clenched, never able to let go, even after its unresolved coda.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    Rich in detail, gorgeously shot and beautifully acted, Les Destinees is, in its quiet, epic way, daring, inventive and refreshingly unusual.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    An achievement of accomplished filmmaking and superb acting, L.I.E. puts you in the tough spot of unraveling how you feel about what you've viewed.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    One of the most aggressively ambiguous pictures of the year. There is a certain power to that.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    Finding Forrester achieves a distinct success few Hollywood movies can even dream of: It overwhelms and inspires with understatement.
    • Portland Oregonian

    It's creepy, but it's not horrifying. Still, the movie has its distorted, haunting moments that will stick with you, and it's stunning to look at.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Kim Morgan
    A picture so powerfully harrowing, its slight shortcomings are forgettable compared to the entire film's cumulative effect. It's that searing.
