    This was a story that made front pages in its day but has been largely lost to history, and now is brought bracingly and compellingly back to life.

    Among the Dardennes' more accessible films, despite a drawn-out finale that still doesn't quite satisfy.

    West of Memphis does nothing to displace its predecessor films as masterpieces of investigative filmmaking, but complements them as a riveting capstone to an epic and tragic tale.

    John Hawkes has, until now, been known primarily as the skilled character actor who brought an earthy authenticity to roles on TV's "Deadwood" and the Oscar-nominated "Winter's Bone." With The Sessions, he makes his mark as a bona fide member of screen acting's elite. And he does it while barely moving a muscle.

    Pride should leave audiences smiling and inspired. But it would have been a much more groundbreaking film if it had been released 30 years ago.

    Cheadle's performance elevates Hotel Rwanda, making it a film that does justice to the tragedy it commemorates.

    If there's one thing missing, it's a sense of purposeful, immediate outrage. You can't help but wonder why this film wasn't made 20 years ago, when it could have saved these men some time behind bars.

    Controversy aside, there's no denying that Kinsey was a pivotal figure in 20th-century America, and one whose fascinating story makes for a fascinating film.

    Youth may be wasted on some of the young, but the two aspiring Norwegian novelists at the center of Reprise, director Joachim Trier's debut feature, try desperately to avoid that particular cliche.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Highly entertaining chronicle of a dream unfilmed.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    It's a treat to be diverted by a film that actually has a brain.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Plot takes a back seat to style and attitude, as it often does in Jarmuch's world, which can make the last half-hour of the movie drag a bit. But when that means getting to hang out with two fascinating creatures of the night, played by two fascinating performers, that's a perfectly valid trade-off.

    Bell does a fantastic job of telling a thoroughly feminist story without being strident or didactic.
    • 79 Metascore

    It proves the power of a good story, both to entertain us and to allow us to process unpleasant truths.
    • 79 Metascore

    The clichés at its core make Metalhead something less than a full-bore, head-banging triumph. But it does perform the service of reminding us that even Judas Priest is capable of saving souls, and any film that features a cross-generational dance-off to Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction" can't be all bad.

    There seems to be less acting going on and more being, which not only makes this an enormously affecting penultimate performance (Gandolfini’s final film, “Animal Rescue,” will be released next year), but reinforces the brilliance of the darker work for which he will no doubt remain best known.

    In the annals of monster movies, one name stands above all the rest, way above: Godzilla.

    Intense, well-acted love story.

    You might not be able to picture yourself in such a life, but you'll be glad that it persists.

    Even the finest troupe of thespians would be wasted without Allen's guiding hand as writer and director. But Blue Jasmine, which might rank among Allen's 10 best films, shows what can happen when it all comes together.

    The black-and-white cinematography and silent-film feel are haunting and nostalgic, and Aurora's story encapsulates a broader, bittersweet truth about the perils of tinted memory.

    The results are inspiring, demonstrating that an artistic eye is an innate thing.

    Director Bent Hamer ("Factotum") keeps things drily amusing throughout.

    It's a riveting character study/soap opera.

    To dismiss Ex Machina as just another robot movie would be like calling the Grand Canyon a hole in the ground. It's one of the most original, smart, thought-provoking science fiction movies of recent years.

    It's a pleasant, engaging version of probably the closest thing to a sitcom the Bard ever penned.

    What's different here is the setting: Instead of modern-day misogyny, the heroine of The Last Mistress is up against its 19th-century version.

    In Morvern Callar, the subject matter may be morbid and unappealing, but the director handles it with a visual poetry and an eye for hidden beauty that marks a filmmaker of the first order.

    Herzog's drive to bring Dengler's story to a wide audience might have paradoxically caused him to do what he seems normally to abhor: compromise.
    • 77 Metascore

    The resulting documentary is a fascinating meditation on the different ways nature can be experienced, as well as a fatalistic take on the process of our planet's seemingly inevitable change in climate.
