    What this alteration says about societal trends of the past three decades is open to debate, but the change is a tiny hint that earnest fidelity to the source was not a top priority.

    An action film without a completely empty head, and these days, that's as rare as Excalibur itself.

    Overall, Luther does a satisfying job of restoring humanity to a woodcut icon.

    What really separates Zatoichi from a run-of-the-mill action pic is the sense of humor -- and even more than that, the sense of fun -- that Kitano brings to it.

    A fascinating experiment in both filmmaking technology and narrative style, but one that can be counted a success only in limited ways.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    A distancing cynicism has been slathered over the story's maudlin core, with the hope perhaps that between these two conventional extremes resides a genuine emotional truth. That may be the case, but "Wilbur" doesn't quite get to it.

    Solid summer entertainment set in a recognizably real world.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    The movie knows enough, most of the time, to just let the funny people be funny.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Despite the accumulated facts, the lack of any commentators outside Kushner's circle of family and admirers and the refusal, in fact, to wrestle with the thornier questions of identity and criticism make this a worthwhile but imperfect film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Director Jan Hrebejk and screenwriter Petr Jarchovsky ("Divided We Fall," "Up and Down") have crafted another well-observed tale, one with no heroes or villains, just people trying to make something of the situations in which they find themselves. And, with a nicely ambiguous ending, it's drama enough.

    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.
    • 69 Metascore

    One man's befuddlement is another's awe at the ineffability of time, and from either perspective, this is a spectacle not soon forgotten, even if never understood.

    For at least three-fourths of its running time, The Concert is predictable, soft-edged and unremarkable. Then the titular performance, of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, begins, and the music elicits the emotional response the rest of the film has been striving for the whole time. It's enough to almost make the whole thing worthwhile.

    • 75 Marc Mohan
    A twisty, darkly comic story of greed, betrayal and murderous misunderstandings.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    The merits of its arguments can be debated on the Op-Ed pages, but at least the movie makes it clear that they desperately need to be.

    Well, if Jordan believes he's made an excellent film, that's one thing, but the fact is it's a minor, though mostly enjoyable, one.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Rather like a four-hour episode of "Today": painless enough, leavening superficiality with substance, allowing you to watch and still do the laundry without missing anything vital.

    It may not be the most memorable saga put on film, but as far as Miike is concerned, it doesn't have to be.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    It proves the power of a good story, both to entertain us and to allow us to process unpleasant truths.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Director Martin Koolhoven doesn't take many narrative chances, but the somber, steely cinematography and convincing performances help to carry the day.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    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.
    • 59 Metascore

    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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    A compelling examination of a complex topic.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    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.
