    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Lou Lumenick
    An absorbing, deeply affecting, well-acted --and remarkably evenhanded -- antiwar statement. It's also incredibly suspenseful and very blackly funny.

    An all-time classic that seems even better after two decades.

    • 100 Lou Lumenick
    Perhaps the year's most daring and fully realized movie, is a pitch-perfect re-creation of '50s melodramas, showcasing a four-hankie performance by a peroxided Julianne Moore.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 100 Lou Lumenick
    Short and sweet, small and smart, Tadpole is the oasis in the desert of dopey summer blockbusters - an uproarious, sophisticated coming-of-age comedy so flawlessly written, acted and directed it seems practically miraculous.

    • 100 Lou Lumenick
