    • 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

    It's a riveting character study/soap opera.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Takes on the air of a heist film as the preparations proceed, and even knowing the outcome, tension still remains.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    An extraordinarily gut-wrenching, intense story of survival against all odds.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Predictable, contrived, sappy and, ultimately, against all odds, remarkably fulfilling.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    The pressure cooker atmosphere builds for almost too long, but when the resolution finally occurs, the sense of relief is that much more palpable.

    Without passing moral judgments on either group, Cartel Land provides a vivid illustration of the dangers inherent whenever a government fails to meet its citizens' needs to the extent that they take matters into their own hands.

    What's most endearing about "Taxi," as well as Panahi's earlier films made under repression, is the lack of righteous anger.
    • 87 Metascore

    It's similar to 2011's "The Loneliest Planet," which examined a similar dynamic between a couple backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains. But Force Majeure (which, as a legal term, refers to unforeseeable events or "acts of God") is sharper and smarter, combining precision-strike storytelling, directorial art, and impressive, often invisible visual effects, including that avalanche scene.

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

    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.

    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.

    With this amoral business environment, it's not a question of if there will be another Enron, but when.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    A volatile film. But it's not a specifically political one. With only superficial alteration, it could be set in Cold War Berlin, or colonial Boston, or any time and place where the dynamics of power conspire to create an atmosphere of paranoia and mistrust.

    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.

    As unpleasant as so many of its going-on are, Wake in Fright works both as an early instance of "Ozploitation" cinema and as a harsh critique of Australian colonialism and the absurdity of trying to bring so-called civilization to this vast arid wilderness.
    • 62 Metascore

    The subtle menace of the would-be geneticist of the Master Race mingles with ordinary pre-teen foreboding to create a riveting cocktail of unease.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    It wouldn’t be surprising to hear about moviegoers demanding their money back after seeing The Dallas Buyers Club, but not because the film isn’t good. It’s actually very nearly great.

    As far as a coherent, hilarious story line, as well as sheer blasphemous glee, you can't do much better than "Life of Brian."
    • 61 Metascore

    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    As numbing as the drumbeat of downbeat documentaries can be, as hard as it is to even be shocked at the depravities committed in our name, a film like this remains important, both as an indictment of the present day and as a warning to future generations that the ends don't always justify the means.

    With evocative performances, especially from the two women, and a nicely modulated sense of nostalgia, Ilo Ilo marks the emergence of a promising new cinematic voice.
    • 77 Metascore

    Grandma is a movie that, for what it's worth, gets an A+ on the Bechdel test. Writer-director Paul Weitz may still be cashing residual checks for the "American Pie" movies, but this is his most heartfelt, successful effort since 2002's "About a Boy."
    • 75 Metascore

    By the time the satisfying conclusion rolls around, though, it proves to be much more about the ability of a world-class director to induce such willing suspension of disbelief that even the loopiest narrative developments seem like the most natural thing in the world.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    It's a fascinating instance of a filmmaker working with self-imposed rules, but never forgetting that those restrictions are only worthwhile to the extent that they serve character and story. It's a ride well worth taking.
    • 76 Metascore

    Shortland, whose only previous feature was 2004's coming-of-age drama "Somersault," creates a visceral, immersive environment and draws a very impressive performance from newcomer Saskia Rosendahl.
