    It's huge and bewildering and it hurts to watch, but it hurts so good it's gorgeous.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 100 Kimberley Jones
    It’s a movie made of moments, the antithesis of "plot-driven," but the sum of these moments is magnificent, the culmination of so many elements: acting, scripting, score (by locals Michael Linnen and David Wingo), and cinematography.

    A riot of sight and sound that, however baffling, has an irresistible, elemental pull.

    Do we ever get the whole truth? Only this: The past is never the past. In Farhadi’s wounding worldview, the past is the present and, most certainly, the future, too.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel is nothing short of an enchantment.

    The characters in The Claim suffer under the weight of very big things -- betrayal, abandonment, disease, death -- but they do so quietly, stoically, until, by God, they just can't take it anymore.

    It's all about the little things, and the way in which the little things can steal into your heart in big ways.

    Cue the footage of Cockettes in spangles and glitter, high-kicking and belting out show tunes at the top of their lungs. Damn, it looks grand.

    Delicious.

    The Dogme pedigree rarely distracts; there is too much emotional investment to care much about dogmatic fidelity.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    A film that wants you to get happy.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    Smart, uncanny, resistant to the short cuts of pop psychology, and shocking in the best since of the word, Steers' debut is a stunner.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    The actors, as a powerful and convincing ensemble, are equally understated and just as devastating.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    Sexy, sophisticated comedy that only occasionally falls short of its admirable ambition: that is, to be a fun, fizzy, razzle-dazzle thing. Straight to the moon, indeed.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    A triumph in anguish.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    Moments of almost unbearable beauty.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    A lovely, quietly thrilling thing.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    A rare achievement.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    This modest French-language film follows the time-honored cinematic tradition of plot as spearheaded by a simple twist of fate.

    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    I don't know if the many plot swerves withstand a second viewing, but I suspect the meat of the matter – the swooning visuals, the expert choreography, the teasing love story – does.

    The sum is something deeply profound: about awkwardness, culture clash, failed connections, and – ultimately – the strength that comes from surviving a trial by fire.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    It packs a hefty emotional wallop.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    Nothing short of majestic.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    It's all so goddamn realistic and reminiscent of real-life love (and how often does that happen onscreen?) that The Puffy Chair would be hell to watch if it weren't so funny.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    It’s not quite as brutalizing as McEwan’s brilliant source novel – it bears too much of a Great Art buff – but it ravishes nonetheless in its grand exploration of the sins of the daughter and a lifetime spent making reparations.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    Funny and sweet and guaranteed to flood you with good feeling.
    • 53 Metascore

    In its cinematic incarnation, Sex and the City has lost none of its bawdiness yet gained a more profound sense of soberness. Parker, especially, who in the last season of the show bordered on insufferable in her affected squeaks and shrieks, is allowed to go to very dark places – to be, in fact, quite unfabulous.

    The Vuillards, however fractured, know one another's rhythms and rituals, and Desplechin knows just how to convey them in the subtlest of ways.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 89 Kimberley Jones
    Bahrani's small marvel of a film.
    • 94 Metascore

    The tension is enough to make you slightly sick, and the overall mood of the thing is deeply dispiriting, but then, nobody ever said that war isn't hell.
