    Arguably the year's most entertaining art-house film.
    • 64 Metascore

    Strictly a love it-or-hate-it proposition, it requires viewers to work at a movie with a narrative that could support at least half a dozen interpretations.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A remarkable, eye-popping nature documentary.

    The time passes quickly. This is the rare remake that does honor to the spirit of the original.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Forget those weepie liberal clichés. This starless and vividly authentic romantic thriller set in Central America really rocks, and is one of the most exciting directorial debuts in years.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Slowly builds power to devastating effect.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    It’s perhaps the most incisive and funniest Hollywood take on Broadway since Mel Brook’s original “The Producers.”
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A remarkably assured feature debut by Bennett Miller, a longtime director of commercials (and the documentary "The Cruise") whose no-frills style trusts that the powerful material and the uniformly excellent performances need little embellishment.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Phoebe in Wonderland happens to be at least partly a Lifetime movie, but this special little film is no disease-of-the-week tear-jerker.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Tim Burton's best film in years.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Combines big laughs, a big heart and thoroughly winning characters to become the first big surprise of the fall season.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A technological landmark that couldn't look or sound better.
    • 76 Metascore

    Clooney, who gained 35 pounds for the role, gives a self-effacing but highly effective performance.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    At its heart, this is a thrilling tribute to a modest hero who rose to an extraordinary occasion.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    This movie belongs to its young stars, who have grown immensely as actors since they were first ideally cast by Chris Columbus, the hack who directed the first two movies.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The first filmed Shakespeare comedy in decades that’s actually funny.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Morris' most gripping film since "The Thin Blue Line," is the year's scariest movie.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Not a film for all tastes, but it's a considerable artistic achievement.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Schrader's strongest movie since "Affliction," is another meditation on American masculinity powerfully told with great wit and style.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Even with his clothes on, this is Mortensen's best and richest performance, worthy of serious awards consideration. He lends a moral complexity to Eastern Promises that makes it much more than just a very accomplished action thriller.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Davis, a hugely underrated actress..., is deadpan perfection as Joyce, wearing oversized glasses and a wig that makes her look like an older version of Thora Birch's character in "Ghost World."
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Not many people are making silent horror serials these days, but Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin pushes his love of lurid melodrama to the limit in his latest demented treat, Brand Upon the Brain!
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Bryan Singer’s whip-smart and witty time-travel romp X-Men: Days of Future Past blows a breath of fresh air through the musty Marvel universe.

    Desplechin draws uniformly superb performances from his young cast, making the coming-of-age genre seem fresh and vital.

    One of the best films released so far this year, At Any Price signals the arrival of Iranian-American Ramin Bahrani in the ranks of major US directors.
    • 79 Metascore

    Utterly delightful.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Mud
    Mud runs over two hours, climaxing with a shootout that belongs in a different movie. It’s a rare misstep in an art-house movie that will pull mainstream audiences along as inexorably as the Mississippi River. Go see it.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Like Roald Dahl's book, Tim Burton's splendidly imaginative and visually stunning - and often very dark and creepy - new version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is squarely aimed more at children than their parents.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel do some of the best work of their careers playing longtime friends navigating their twilight years in Paolo Sorrentino’s witty, wise and swooningly beautiful dramatic comedy Youth.
