    Neither the social commentary nor the story ever overpower the other, a feat that allows this remake to stand proudly alongside the original, its equal in every way.

    This deadpan ode to living life to its fullest could be the ultimate crowd-pleaser at this year's PIFF.
    • 75 Metascore

    The movie, like the man, seems more interested in spreading the gospel of environmental responsibility, and in doing so it's probably the most important film of the year.

    If Young at Heart were merely a cheeky presentation of codgers belting out inappropriate tunes, it would be a curiosity and nothing more. But by getting inside the lives of a few of its members, the movie ultimately paints a moving portrait of senior citizens who believe it's better to burn out than fade away.

    An alternately harrowing and poetic take on the fatal 1982 hunger strike of Irish Republican Army prisoner Bobby Sands, Hunger is also one of the most impressive feature directing debuts in years.
    • 89 Metascore

    The acting is flawless, the world feels utterly real, and the finale accomplishes the miracle of finding in the everyday world something profound.

    With a level-gazed approach to its milieu, empathetic but clear-eyed, Winter's Bone practically makes up for 40 years of "Deliverance"-style hillbilly cartoons.

    For a film that consists largely of a series of talking-head interviews, The Gatekeepers is a riveting a documentary.

    The Act of Killing is exemplary as a history lesson, a character study and a powerful argument for confronting the past.
    • 96 Metascore

    Gravity isn’t as ambitious as “2001,” but then, what is? It is, however, absolutely a worthy successor, a masterpiece of hard science fiction, and the movie to beat at this point for next year’s cinematography and visual effects Oscars.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Marc Mohan
    The pacing is perfect, and the action, mostly filmed in a studio, is never less than utterly believable. The director’s first feature, “Margin Call,” was full of rapid-fire dialogue, and he shows off considerable range by following it up with this film.
    • 92 Metascore

    As flawless as any film this year and rock-solid confirmation that Joel and Ethan Coen are the greatest filmmakers working in America (and perhaps anywhere else) today.

    Anyone who shares Ebert's love of movies and who followed his career will be exceptionally moved by Life Itself, but anyone who appreciates a well-lived life should be touched as well.
    • 89 Metascore

    The thrilling cinematic joyride that, among other improbable feats, puts Michael Keaton, as Thomson, smack in the middle of the Oscar race for best actor.
    • 80 Metascore

    The end result is the best documentary you'll see this year, as thrilling a competition as any Super Bowl and as suspenseful a story as any Hitchcock film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    This story could take place anywhere there are families struggling to remake themselves in the aftermath of tragedy; its universality is perhaps the most potent political message of all.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    This unique cinematic experience is a parable of greed and revenge that could take place anywhere.
    • 78 Metascore

    In the annals of monster movies, one name stands above all the rest, way above: Godzilla.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    As far as a coherent, hilarious story line, as well as sheer blasphemous glee, you can't do much better than "Life of Brian."
    • 81 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Mostly this film is a glorious ode to the culture and family bonds that override all else, and to the expressiveness of both the human and animal actors.
    • 84 Metascore

    Perhaps the most beautiful film to hit Portland movie screens this year.
    • 82 Metascore

    With this amoral business environment, it's not a question of if there will be another Enron, but when.
    • 74 Metascore

    An unforgettable experience.

    A joy to watch.

    A haunting, melancholy fable, Tony Takitani is the kind of film that could seem tedious from a mere description. Approached with the right mind-set, however, it's a hypnotic mood piece on love and loss, one that knows -- at 75 minutes -- not to overstay its welcome.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Powerfully explores the struggles faced by those whom DNA testing has exonerated after years behind bars.
    • 88 Metascore

    The result is a gripping film which, despite the annoying rugrat, demonstrates how part of leaving childhood behind is learning how and when to lie, and to do it well.

    Throughout, Sophie exhibits the quality common to all of history's great martyrs, a preternatural calmness that perseveres despite (or perhaps because of) the inevitability of her doom.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    You're either on the boat or off the boat with something like this. But for those willing to brave the open water, it's an awe-inspiring ride.
    • 65 Metascore

    If you're content to let dream logic take over, a lot can be gleaned from this odd, darkly funny meditation on life, death, love and revenge.
