    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Beautifully acted, minutely observed story.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    The film's ensemble portrait of women caught between nostalgia for the tough and free-spirited babes they were (however much that freedom may have been illusory) and uncertainty about what their futures hold is almost painfully on target.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Thoroughly dotty and surprisingly endearing.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    This intelligent, oddly aloof thriller is a worthy follow-up to director Steven Soderberg's "Out of Sight."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Brawny, he-man spectacle combined with a surprisingly solid story and buttressed by excellent performances.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Heir to a long tradition of apocalyptic scare stories, the film wears its influences proudly.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Often technically rough, but it's painfully compelling.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Alternately sweet and raucous comedy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    A tour de force and an utter delight, studded with priceless supporting bits by Miriam Margolyes, Maury Chaykin, Rosemary Harris and Rita Tushingham, each of whom steals at least one richly deserved moment in the spotlight.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Roos' sly, throwaway insights into the ways people deceive and undermine themselves are both ruefully funny and painfully on the mark.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    This Australian tear-jerker finds more humor than you'd imagine possible in the story of a dying woman getting to know her adult children.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    The film rests on Depp's evocation of Barrie's gentle, playfulness and deeply buried sorrows; it's difficult to imagine another actor so gracefully evoking Barrie's childlike qualities without seeming creepy or emotionally malformed, and only the hard of heart will come away dry-eyed.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Less a sequel than a variation on a haunting theme -- the nature and origins of humanity.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Would be funny if it weren't so horrifying.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Antal's debut is a sharp, blackly comic hugely entertaining thriller.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Gray doesn't condescend to his outer-borough characters and elicits pitch-perfect performances from his ensemble cast.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Above all, Jackson evokes an almost palpable sense of the will to power trapped within the ring. Without this evocation of the ring's insidious ability to sniff out the potential for corruption and capitalize on it, the entire enterprise would be precious drivel.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Moreno's subtly calibrated mix of intelligence, naivete, rebelliousness, charisma and practicality produces an unforgettable protagonist; even Maria's recklessness seems reasonable because it's so clearly rooted in desperation.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Its imagery is never less than breathtakingly beautiful, and is occasionally truly awesome
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Serrau effortlessly navigates the tricky transition from ruefully comic chick flick to gritty crime picture.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Piercing, sweetly melancholy and acted with a breathtaking eye for nuance.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    William Klein's film documents a turbulent time and an outsized personality, but the film's glories are in the details and its intimacy would be unimaginable in the rigidly spin-controlled atmosphere of 21st-century sports.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    The framing story is pointless and almost insulting, even though it's part of former New York Times columnist Anna Quindlen's novel.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    This amazing footage alternates with interviews that include more than a dozen surviving members of the troupe, whose recollections are by turn funny, touching and mind-boggling. What a time!
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    You don't have to be a chem-lab wonk to be seduced by the seven scientists who discuss their work and lives in this engaging film.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    A rapt fascination with transcendent lunacy runs through Herzog's work, both fiction and documentary; while disdaining Treadwell's rhapsodically anthropomorphized vision of nature.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Steven Soderbergh's direction conjures an understated '70s vibe, striking an apparently effortless balance between grit and glamour.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Medem's stupendously gorgeous puzzle movie features strong performances from its four leads.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    A very entertaining, hugely neurotic romantic comedy.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Maitland McDonagh
    Enthralling, darkly funny, horrifying and hopeful.
