    • 89 Metascore

    A film this heartfelt and intelligent about social justice will never be unimportant, but it feels especially relevant today.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    While what's on screen is unsparing and clinically presented, the underlying, almost invisible humanity and artistry of the film inspire rather than depress.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    The screenplay, which Ceylan and his wife Ebru based on short stories by Anton Chekhov, is wordy but insightful. The widescreen cinematography, capturing the natural wonders that make Cappadocia a popular tourist destination, is crisp in exterior shots and delicately shaded indoors. And the performances are never less than totally convincing.

    Reaches truly terrifying heights as it becomes clear how possible the worst outcome can be. Like "Pan's Labyrinth," this is a movie about children made very much for adults.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 78 Metascore

    You might not be able to picture yourself in such a life, but you'll be glad that it persists.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Effective, fact-based melodrama that packs an unexpected emotional wallop.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Behind the on-field shenanigans and eccentric personalities, there's a meatier story about the corporatization of sports and the disappearance of the barnstorming attitude Bing Russell took as a virtual religion.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Perhaps the most beautiful film to hit Portland movie screens this year.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    A joy to watch.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    A keenly observed, typically high-quality family drama of the sort only the French seem capable of making anymore.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    If Song of the Sea had had the promotional muscle of Disney or Dreamworks behind it, it may have won this year's Oscar for Best Animated Feature instead of merely being nominated. It certainly would have deserved it.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    A funny, believable film about the ability of even the damaged and imperfect to earn a little happiness.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    20 Feet From Stardom spends time as well with Claudia Lennear, Táta Vega and Lisa Fischer. None of the three ever found much success as a solo artist, but you probably can't listen to a classic-rock radio station for a half-hour without hearing one of them backing up Joe Cocker, David Bowie, Tina Turner or the Rolling Stones.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    This compelling piece of historical detective work is, in fact, less about what people have done to the islands than about what living on the islands has done to people.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    A perfectly irreverent counterpoint to movies that take their superheroes a bit too seriously.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    The result feels less like selling out than growing up.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    It's a topic that's been handled in films before, perhaps most notably in Jane Campion's "Holy Smoke," but Durkin offers the most persuasively believable peek into the psyche of such a character I've ever seen.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Chow's specialty is over-the-top slapstick action in the Hong Kong style, and the new film doesn't disappoint on either count.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Katz, who has been saddled with the deadly label "mumblecore" in the past, and Stephens ("Pilgrim Song") combine sensibilities of dry wit and warm earnestness in precise proportions. It's also further proof, if it were needed, that smart, funny, entertaining films are always around, even in the dog days of summer. You just have to know where to look.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    This film could serve as a potent tool for those trying to change 40 years of public policy.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    This unique cinematic experience is a parable of greed and revenge that could take place anywhere.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    At over two hours, it might test the patience of some younger viewers (and some impatient older ones as well), but for anyone willing to take the time, it's an utter treat.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Highly entertaining chronicle of a dream unfilmed.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Powerfully explores the struggles faced by those whom DNA testing has exonerated after years behind bars.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    It's a riveting character study/soap opera.
