    Anderson, in her first major non-Scully film role, is lethally miscast.

    Includes insightful and often hilarious archival interviews with Langlois and dozens of associates, as well as wonderful footage of Langlois.

    A lively score by Danny Elfman and some of the most dramatic sound-effects work since the Three Stooges only add to the appeal of Deep Sea 3-D.

    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke and a host of other notables sing the praises of the estranged siblings, whose work is illustrated by copious film clips.

    Taylor also makes an impressive comeback as the conflicted daughter who instinctively distrusts Heather, but Starting Out in the Evening is first and foremost a triumph by Frank Langella.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    An intelligent, extremely well-acted thriller about a mother's endless love for her son.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    A tad slow by American standards, but so extremely well-acted and emotionally truthful, it's right up there with "In the Mood for Love" as prime romantic fare for the Valentine's Day weekend.

    Blue Jasmine may sound like a topical satire, but it isn’t really. It’s a character study of an obnoxious, selfish and supremely self-absorbed woman oblivious to the pain she inflicts on others.
    • 78 Metascore

    After a promising start, writer-director Daniel M. Cohen pours on schmaltz straight out of the similarly themed "Diamonds," including the proverbial hookers -- with hearts of gold.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Demonstrates that sometimes letting subjects and the facts speak for themselves can be quietly devastating.

    Needs less talk, more music.

    Essentially a weird series of nonsequiturs. I'd rather be watching a sequel to the much-maligned "Little Nicky" -- a Sandler film that was at least trying to do something interesting -- than this failed experiment in fusing high and low culture.

    Tedious and pretentious.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    After the Wedding is full of enough plot twists to supply a whole season of "Desperate Housewives."
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Lou Lumenick
    Christopher Nolan's dramatically and emotionally satisfying wrap-up to the Dark Knight trilogy adroitly avoids clichés and gleefully subverts your expectations at every turn.

    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Genuinely scary, exquisitely shot -- and very well-acted.

    Less grim than it sounds, Southern Comfort ends on a note of triumph for its endearing, gender-bending hero.
    • New York Post
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Variously been described as a thriller, a muckraking exposé and even a satire -- and its refusal to fit neatly into a genre is only part of why it's so utterly disturbing.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    This remarkable new documentary from Raymond De Felitta ("City Island") fruitfully revisits the aftermath of a TV doc that his father, Frank, produced for NBC in 1965.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Offers highly effective performances by a cast of real-life employees without previous acting experience, who also collaborated on the intriguing screenplay.

    I was laughing so hard, tears were streaming down my cheeks.

    The first filmed Shakespeare comedy in decades that’s actually funny.
    • 78 Metascore

    A rare case of an American remake that actually improves on a European movie.

    This movie sends you into the night thinking, maybe even a little afraid. Bravo, Mr. Fincher.

    Morris' most gripping film since "The Thin Blue Line," is the year's scariest movie.

    Well worth seeing for the terrific performances.
    • New York Post

    A ho-hum male weepie/road comedy that's worth watching mostly because of a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of England's greatest working-class actors.

    • 63 Lou Lumenick
    Gives a harrowingly accurate portrait of the indignities sometimes suffered by hospitalized patients - and the sacrifices their families make.

    2046 is a bit overlong and not for all tastes, but fans of "In the Mood for Love" will relish this second helping, which is more emotionally substantial than the first.

    Gut-Bustingly funny moves are pretty rare, so hustle over to Kung Fu Hustle, actor-director Ste phen Chow's exhilaratingly hilarious and affectionate send-up of Hong Kong action flicks.
