    Quiet, sexual, disturbing, often beautifully melancholic, Rain, as seen through the eyes of a precocious girl, recalls a parental split-up with sobering accuracy. It reminds us why so many teen-agers go through a sullen phase -- and sometimes never shake it off.

    • 83 Kim Morgan
    You have to experience the thing to understand its simultaneous recklessness and care, its humor and sadness in the name of failure, its playful but dismal take on formulaic Hollywood endings.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 83 Kim Morgan
    Takes the typical detective-hunting-a-serial-killer story and twists it into a creepy, enigmatic bit of psychological terror that by its final ambiguous scene leaves you truly chilled.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Kim Morgan
    Seems deeply influenced by American film noir, the Western fairy tale (in this case, mermaids) and the works of Alfred Hitchcock in particular.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 44 Metascore
    • 83 Kim Morgan
    It is off-putting at first, then refreshing, then downright touching. In short, it works.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 83 Kim Morgan
    The newest, and probably first, true cheerleading movie.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Kim Morgan
    A lovely film that requires a leisurely sit to think, Shower is not so much a shower as a bath, and a refreshing one at that.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    An impressive array of themes, stories and sequences.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    About how women see themselves in terms of bodies, age and careers, but without all the "you go girl" tripe crammed into so many other movies of this ilk.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    It works for the most part, though some scenes come off contrived or directed without flavor. But thanks to the likable, rough-hewn crew and Forster, the film flows along gruffly and with eloquence.

    • 75 Kim Morgan
    It's not afraid to be funny, tragic and decidedly female.
    • Portland Oregonian
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    With very little dialogue and through what's essentially a gimmick, we come truly to like these guys.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    A funny, puzzling movie ambiguous enough to be engaging and oddly moving.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Though stilted and emotionally vacant at times, it's still an entertaining and absorbing experience.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Stays engaging, chiefly, through the textured, ambiguous performances of Spacey, Moore and Dench.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Engrossing and unusual.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    In its own slightly disturbing way, this psychological thriller serves as an absorbing diversion without sapping brain cells -- almost the perfect summer movie for smart people.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    A family film, but it's a wonder if kids will really enjoy it. The picture is geared for older folks, people who'll be heartened by the message that sometimes, you can return to your passions.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Though moving, Together needed more opera to send us where great music frequently goes -- nearly over the edge.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    A movie that will wear you out and make you misty even when you don't want to be. It's a gushy, sometimes-maudlin, often-charming movie that highlights the importance of little things.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Effectively thrilling.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    It's not an art film. The movie is as mainstream as it gets -- which is just fine; the picture is both great fun and gently satirical.

    xXx
    It's too ridiculous, too flatly acted, too action-packed, too, well, fun.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Has many puff-piece moments to it and barely touches the controversy surrounding Tupac's death or that of rival hip-hop impresario Biggie Smalls. But it's engaging nonetheless.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    For all its superfluous and self-conscious moments, the picture is a draining kick.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Owning Mahowny may at times feel futile in its colorless, disheartening subject matter, but that's the point -- to see how barren Mahowny's life becomes. Hoffman gives the film relevance.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    Rat Race isn't a stupid movie -- it's an aggressively stupid movie that journeys into realms of absurdity that are, well, aggressively funny.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    You get to know each person just well enough to compare them, allowing you to judge as you like; the film, nicely, refrains from moralizing.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Kim Morgan
    The film is tangled but not chaotic, thoughtful but not terribly deep. Still, it's intimate, entertaining, and most impressive, genuine.

    You may strain to recall just what happened an hour after you see it, but there are so many worse things to have to remember in life. It's a relief to focus on something so attractively amusing.
