    It may not be the most memorable saga put on film, but as far as Miike is concerned, it doesn't have to be.

    Ultimately, the story can be seen as the collision of two equally uncompromising belief systems, each its own form of fundamentalism. That neither benefits from the encounter should come as no surprise to anyone with the slightest knowledge of human history.

    The experience of psychological depression has been described with a variety of metaphors. William Styron called it "darkness visible," and Winston Churchill euphemized his bouts as "the black dog." In typically grandiose fashion, though, Lars von Trier tops them all.

    Graham is the most affecting character by far, having returned to India for the first time in 40 years to track down an old lover. His story unfolds in surprising, deftly handled ways, and could easily have justified a film of its own.

    It's solidly entertaining, with Downey's roguish charm as appealing as ever.

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

    Director Martin Koolhoven doesn't take many narrative chances, but the somber, steely cinematography and convincing performances help to carry the day.

    With gadgets, girls and globe-trotting held to a minimum, Skyfall, could, for long stretches, be mistaken for just another 21st-century thriller, albeit a well-made and intelligent one.

    Sarah's story is harrowing and powerfully told, as she valiantly attempts to escape and return home with the key to free her brother. Director Gilles Paquet-Brenner doesn't stint on depicting the indignities and violence inflicted even on children, and Mayance's performance is exceptionally strong.

    A compelling examination of a complex topic.
    • 44 Metascore

    Most of the time, though, it's a confusing mishmash featuring a fine actor too willfully operating outside his comfort zone.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    There's an inherent contradiction at the film's core: this sexually explicit motion picture, seemingly made by and for altered consciousnesses, is all about how an innocent newcomer falls prey to gin, sex, and television.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Idris Elba exudes the requisite militaristic authority as Raleigh's commanding officer, and Rinko Kikuchi is his determined partner in mecha mayhem.
    • 76 Metascore

    Like its 2010 predecessor, it's one of the most gorgeous computer-animated kids' films you'll come across, and one of the few that uses 3-D smartly and effectively.
    • 37 Metascore

    Purists may still quail at the little bit of anthropomorphism going on, but it seems a small price to pay to broaden the audience for a family film that seeks to do more than just entertain.
    • 56 Metascore

    Not to be mistaken for a serious treatment of religious fervor or clerical corruption, The Monk is instead a knowingly over-the-top bit of gothic nuttiness.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    It offers a rare look at the everyday life of a spiritual leader, so that even if Yeshi's dilemma never seems that urgent or vital, My Reincarnation remains a compelling, universal film.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    This is more Errol Morris' or Truman Capote's territory than Herzog's, and his patient, determinedly respectful interviews with members of the American underclass bear a whiff of European condescension.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Frankenweenie seems like a genuine effort to pass along this love to the next generation, and if one kid who sees it goes home and demands to watch another movie featuring a giant turtle, it will have done its job.
    • 74 Metascore

    Convincing performances from Hemingway and the charmingly crabby Johnson and an unhurried pace ensure that Baker's film achieves its modest goals.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    A moderately enchanting, sometimes thought-provoking corrective to the flaws in the story that inspired it.

    When the movie is funny, it’s very funny.
    • 58 Metascore

    Once Wentworth Miller's screenplay starts to provide answers for Charlie's mysterious menace, though, expectations are left unfulfilled.

    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Spielberg manages to give us a Lincoln for our times, inspiringly heroic but demonstrably human.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    The result is a solid film, but one that remains more interesting than intense.
    • 50 Metascore

    Director Guillaume Canet, who previously teamed with Cluzet on the excellent thriller "Tell No One," capably handles the sprawling cast.
    • 81 Metascore

    The style and subject matter recall the films of the Dardenne brothers, ("The Kid With a Bike") and while Sister never reaches the heights of their best work, it earns the comparison.
    • 76 Metascore

    The languid, observational style of director Julia Loktev will frustrate those expecting stuff to, like, happen more, but it has its real rewards.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    The rhetorically stacked deck, and some unconvincing third-act plot twists, get in the way of this movie's efforts to reach the cinematic promised land of true greatness.

    Despite all this hokum, Quartet is amusing and heartwarming.
