    For those willing to work a bit at it, this is the sort of artistry many American independent movies aspire to - but rarely achieve.

    Though Iris is extremely well-acted and beautifully photographed, some audience members may find themselves agreeing with Bayley's frustrated complaint: "I've never known who you are."

    Story of Tobias Schneebaum, a gay New York artist famous for living with, sleeping with - and, gulp, eating with - cannibals in New Guinea.

    Enemy at the Gates, is no "Saving Private Ryan" - but thrilling, bravura stretches make it consistently entertaining, if less than profound, filmmaking.

    Covers three years in the Public Defender's office with a fast-paced, tabloid gusto.

    Holds less water as a mystery because its plot holes - and choppy pacing - make it seem as disconnected from reality as its hero. But Jackson is so frighteningly effective, and affecting, as Romulus that you're sucked in anyway.

    This isn't a mystery except in the most general sense. It's a dense, Altman-esque psychological drama centering on 10 characters whose lives become as tangled as the lantana.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    An intelligent, extremely well-acted thriller about a mother's endless love for her son.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    It's highly entertaining, even if it's almost entirely one-sided.

    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.

    Well worth seeing for the incandescent Portman.

    Doesn't shy from the ugly side, though it's far from the no-holds-barred exposé being touted in the ads.

    A little gem.

    Had me watching through misty eyes, at least for the first half.

    A summer delight that also provides a quick cultural education.

    Isn't great. But I had fun watching.

    Except when Norton is playing retarded, he and De Niro basically compete to see who can under-act the other. It's positively mesmerizing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Demonstrates that sometimes letting subjects and the facts speak for themselves can be quietly devastating.
    • 51 Metascore

    Ends up taking enough detours to keep DreamWorks' latest animated epic from striking cinematic gold.
    • 84 Metascore

    A film that fans of Latin jazz won't want to miss.
    • New York Post

    Fresh, fast and funny movie.
    • 44 Metascore

    Goes down as smoothly as a pint of Irish ale.
    • 46 Metascore

    Risks trivializing history and pandering to feminist fantasies, but it may be the year's most fearless movie.

    A worthy addition to the growing canon of Holocaust documentaries.

    Tells its story so effectively through pictures it's barely necessary to read the subtitles.

    Walken gives a beautifully understated performance.

    A joyful celebration of Louisiana music in all its permutations.
    • 53 Metascore

    Obviously a labor of love for all involved, including GOP mayoral candidate Michael Bloomberg, who bankrolled the production and receives full producer credit. He deserves it.

    An unforgettable portrait of a testosterone-driven era.
