    Blue Car gets so much of the hard stuff (including Meg's Plath-via-Tori poetry) that it assumes the easy stuff will take care of itself. It doesn't.

    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Northfork's overall ponderousness prevents it from becoming a transcendent fictive poem on the violent domestication of the West.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Theron's empathetic victim-wrath and elemental female outrage almost trump the otherwise cartoonish gender-bending and award-grubbing po' folk put-on.

    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Holder and Parker tread lightly on issues of sexism, and sex in general, and leave us wishing more questions were asked.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    When ditching the mawk to follow his daredevil muse, the director delivers stunning shots of cliff dancing and stunt pilotry.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    The filmmaker achieves the desired sense of remoteness and claustrophobic doom, and though the story could be told more economically, her slow approach conveys the distended chronology that attends an indentured servitude resembling slavery.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    In the central romantic push-pull, Elster and Harold achieve a rare, edgily hopeful chemistry amid emotional ruins.

    These flashes push Dig! beyond recording-industry kvetch, causing it to stay with you longer than either band's ephemeral music.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Doubles as a narrative of the nascent women's movement.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    With just the right balance of epic grandeur and break-into-song goofiness, this Bollywood love legend does double duty as a women's-rights manifesto and a plea for amity between India and Pakistan.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Aims for a mix of "Heathers" wit and "Batman" TV-show camp.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    What makes Winter Solstice, a nice little Jersey vignette about a widower and his two teenage sons, so striking is writer-director Josh Sternfeld's respect for the verbal shorthand of family interaction.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    In this study of keeping up appearances while everything falls apart, the stakes never seem as high as the title suggests.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Yes
    Potter's anachronistic rhyme schemes tumble forth with an out-damned-spot verve that rages against irrelevance.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Most importantly, the environment feels real: the accents, the snaps, the working moms and warehouse crack nooks, every dilapidated stairwell, every bodega and lovingly appointed teenage bedroom sanctuary.

    • 60 Laura Sinagra
    Fellowes's larger goal seems to be making sympathetic characters of Anne and Bule, who for all their lovey-doveyness never emerge as much more than rich twits à la "The Great Gatsby."
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    The trumped-up alley-to-plaza intrigue could use more smoke and less mirrors.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Aiming for Almodóvar lite, the flick is more reminiscent of "The Love Boat" -- drenched this time in cheery polysexuality. Everyone is an angel (and a horny little devil) in this breezy earthly trifle, even if the zaniness never quite takes wing.

    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    The cast, save the charisma-free Schneider, is uniformly hilarious, and deserves classier high jinks than this Juwanna Tootsie roll.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Echoes the trajectory of the post-Communist-bloc region itself, unmoored and at the mercy of pitiless capitalist forces.

    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Spotting trains that left the station a few years back.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    A straightforward epic, almost alarmingly quaint in the telling.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    With a premise this screwy, nobody has any choice but to follow the savvy lead of Bebe Neuwirth, who, as Hudson's "Composure" editor, hams her queen-bitch-mother-hen role to glazed perfection.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    The opposition of Christian spirituality and the bad religion of drugs is enough to send you down to the feel-good bodega just on principle.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Moore's lip-glossed petulance never catches fire with Goode's canned drollery.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    An odd blend of passionate performance footage and maddeningly shallow analysis of Cuba's music and politics.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Our counselors' lawyer-ese is illegally bland, and their committee-penned banter meticulously Botoxed.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    There's an enforced squareness afoot as the directors contrast the couple with Pride-float revelers, as if testifying in front of a Massachusetts court that these two are as fuddy-duddy as the wholesomest het duo.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Despite Weaver's wise instincts for the thoughtful pause, we're stuck with yet another ass-kicking female actor struggling to shade in the contours of a wispy sketch.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Laura Sinagra
    Kuryla has her prole banter down, and moments like McKenzie's desperate dance on her jalopy hood when Turturro locks her out move beyond literary sting into kinetic and sympathetic gutter picaresque.
