    Today, Randi's stooped, gnomish gait and expansive white beard give him the appearance of a Tolkien wizard, but the man's passion for rationality and for exposing fraud and misbelief are stronger than ever. An Honest Liar is a fitting tribute to a figure whose stamina and wit only appear to be magical.

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

    World War Z manages to be scary without descending to in-your-face gore -- it wants to frighten its audience, not disgust them.

    Weitz does it again here, turning what could have been another manifesto of liberal guilt into a genuinely moving tale of a father and son banding together in a hostile world.

    Like Brad Pitt and Robert Redford, Gere's good looks have made it hard sometimes to recognize his acting ability, but it's on full display here in what is anything but a vanity project.

    The documentary's soundtrack is composed entirely of Source Family music, and some of it's not half bad.

    If film's rapturous reception is due in part to the rarity of filmmaking this skillful within the horror genre, it's hard to begrudge this near-masterpiece of unease any of the praise it's gotten.

    Shaun the Sheep Movie delivers exactly what it promises: The cutest, most innocuous entertainment this side of Internet panda videos.

    The movie wobbles as it approaches the home stretch, but, thanks to its leading man, manages to stick the landing.

    While this sort of thing can easily devolve into bourgeois comfort food, Thompson, a veteran of the genre, knows how to serve it up just about right.

    Whatever the interpretation, Stoppard and Wright have demonstrated that Anna's saga has lost none of its power.

    The only danger with a movie like this is the inevitably disappointing return to more humdrum reality once it ends.

    It's no "Fantasia" or "Sleeping Beauty," but it's no "The Rescuers Down Under," either.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Thanks to a slew of engaging performances and a script that finds the sweet spot between crass and curdled, it's a winner.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Despite too stately a pace at times, and some fairly predictable plot resolutions, the film succeeds thanks to empathetic performances (from Walken and especially Hoffman) and an evident affection for the music and musicians it depicts.

    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.

    Kaurismäki is a master of expressive stillness for whom inaction often speaks louder than words, and the performances he elicits are perfectly pitched, including young Miguel's.

    Hers is a sad story, but the fact that she never received recognition during her lifetime isn't part of its sadness.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Solid acting, especially from the women, and a few good Colin Farrell jokes make this familiar tale better than it probably should be.

    Nguyen reportedly worked on War Witch for a decade, and it shows in both the immediacy and authenticity of his tale, and the meticulous craft with which it's told.

    Starring in, directing and writing (in collaboration with Michel Marc Bouchard, on whose play it's based) a movie at Dolan's tender age is certainly a Wellesian accomplishment. All three actors are convincing, especially Cardinal as the cruel, manipulative Francis, and their characters' behavior feels authentic even when it's not logical.

    Canadian director Richie Mehta ("Amal") based Siddharth on his own random encounter with a father searching for his missing son, and the film never feels less than utterly real in its depiction of both everyday Indian life and the hopelessness that comes so naturally in this sort of tragic situation.
    • 64 Metascore

    It's the kind of story that can look pedestrian on paper, but when brought to life this skillfully, proves to be genuinely inspiring.

    Fortunately, their story is just as compelling here, and the film's subjects display impressive adaptability, as well as a desire not to forget those they've left behind.

    Really, though, the most surprising thing about this system is how it disregards some of the basic tenets of conservatism.

    What makes Miss You Already work (when it does work, which is most of the time) is that it shows imperfect characters dealing imperfectly with situations ranging from the maritally frustrating to the existentially overwhelming.

    It's a fun and attractive ride.

    The always thin tightrope between "laughing at" and "laughing with" is negotiated with success in the low-budget comedy The Foot Fist Way.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Political machinations, emotional revelations, and a few well-choreographed fight scenes ensue, but Hou focuses less on the satisfactions of plot and action than on crafting, if not quite bringing to life, his auteurist vision of the past (both historical and cinematic).

    You'll suspect, and even hope, that what's on screen is a hoax, but it seems to be at the very least one version of the truth.
