    Leconte turns up the erotic heat in the most gorgeously photographed black-and-white film since Wim Wenders' sublime "Wings of Desire."

    This intriguing film is the best variation on "Vertigo" since Brian DePalma's far more polished "Obsession" (1976), which ranks with the best Hitchcock knockoffs of all time.

    Good value for the money, a funny, character-driven action comedy with three disparate stars -- who have great chemistry together.

    Hits one out of the park.

    The Price of Milk, which boasts a lush classical score recorded by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, has a few more twists that make this a Valentine's Day delight.

    Strikingly photographed, Maelstrom, which explores its nautical themes in non-linear fashion, is not for all tastes. But I, for one, was hooked by this fish's tale.

    An offer you shouldn't refuse: It's laugh-out-loud, side-splitting funny.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Lou Lumenick
    Genuinely scary, exquisitely shot -- and very well-acted.
    • 66 Metascore

    Overall, it's a hand-tailored job in a marketplace filled with off-the-rack movies.

    English-language remakes of foreign films are usually suspect, but Tortilla Soup is the exception that proves the rule - a flavorful comedy about a food-centric Latino family in Los Angeles.

    Plays like a very good TV movie. Short on visual flair and starpower, Thirteen Days is not the definitive story of the Cuban missile crisis, but it's an engrossing historical lesson nonetheless.

    This wacky former Andy Warhol superstar more than holds your interest in an offbeat documentary.

    Hilarious French farce.

    The first half of Scotland, PA is by far the funniest, with witty dialogue, hilariously ugly period fashions and hairstyles.
