    Lynch's first G-rated feature, turns out to be one of the year's best films...a wonderful surprise.

    Tremendously affecting on several levels, In the Bedroom is must-see viewing for anyone who complains Hollywood doesn't make movies for grownups.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Emotionally honest, feel-good saga with a universality that stands out in a season of singularly depressing and cynical Hollywood product.

    It's a positive hat trick by John Cameron Mitchell.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The most delightful family movie since "Stuart Little."
    • New York Post
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Genuinely creepy Southern Gothic thriller that once again proves that in horror movies, sometimes less is actually more.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The quirky High Fidelity really deserves being called the first must-see movie of the century.
    • New York Post
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Schrader's strongest movie since "Affliction," is another meditation on American masculinity powerfully told with great wit and style.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    An astonishing re-creation of the Londonderry massacre of January 1972.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A technological landmark that couldn't look or sound better.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    An unforgettable and complex portrait of a nuclear family in meltdown.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Williams triumphs by exceeding both in sheer actor's craft - and the depths he plumbs in his character's tortured soul.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Isn't quite as accessible or as deeply moving as his masterpiece, "All About My Mother." It's a tad too self-consciously a work of art for that. But it's still a must-see for anyone who's halfway serious about film.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A remarkable accomplishment, an absorbing documentary about the joy of reading that's also a positively gripping literary mystery.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Quirkily likable comedy-drama about a family trying to coping with loss, contains three of the best performances you're likely to see in an American movie this year.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Hilarious sweet and sour David Mamet comedy.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Norton, returning to cracking form, doesn't try to make the selfish and smug Monty sympathetic -- but he lights up the screen, especially in two fantasy sequences.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    An enthralling 3-D IMAX documentary.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Drawing inspiration from anime and vintage Looney Toons, this beautifully drafted, offbeat charmer is hip, funny - and a bona fide heart tugger for the whole family.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    As hip, funny and truthful a sleeper as has ever flown under Tinseltown's radar.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    This demanding puzzle is not for the "Chocolat" crowd, but those who stay with it will experience perhaps the most dazzling film released so far this year - even though a second viewing is virtually mandatory.
    • New York Post
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A summery confection crammed with fresh young talented faces that's hard not to love.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Mostly it's worth seeing Alien, which established Scott as an A-list director, in a theater because his brilliant and often expansive visuals have always worked better on a big screen than on video.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Stunningly photographed, largely with a hand-held camera, by Rodrigo Prieto (another member of the "Amores Perros" team) on gritty locations in Memphis and Albuquerque, 21 Grams is also a visual tour de force - and a rare Hollywood product depicting class differences with any kind of honesty.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A thoughtful, rousing and beautifully crafted epic.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    The best thing Baldwin has done in years, and a triumph of low-budget storytelling by a director to watch.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    A grim, challenging movie that will amply reward audiences willing to go along with its ride into the dark depths of its characters' souls.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    An exquisitely crafted Civil War epic that combines the epic romantic sweep of "Gone With the Wind" with a more intimate voice that speaks eloquently to the war-weary nation of today.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Vol. 2 isn't anywhere near as self-indulgent as its predecessor, but it still plays like the work of a man too in love with his creations to decide which of his darlings to kill - so he ended up with merely a very good movie.
