    This is Martin Scorsese, and in the end, it's his town, and his show.

    There's no denying it's a tragic film from start to finish, but equally undeniable is the endless stoicism displayed by the women, and Panahi's crisp, meandering direction.

    A remarkable film. From its performances on down to director of photography Roger Deakins' sun-baked, dirty-ochre cinematography, the film is all of a piece.

    Bird's grim, picture-perfect direction -- the Sierras are more character than backdrop, and everything else looks like it's already been digested and expelled -- augments what is frankly a small, albeit lusterless, gem of a horror show, for once with as many smarts as body parts.

    The strangest biographical film ever made is also one of the most charming, melancholy and quirkily humorous films of the year.

    Although a few bits (the film is done in blackout sketch style) fall flat and a good ten minutes could be shaved off the running time with no visible damage, it's an impressive and irascible debut that rings true even when you're laughing too hard to hear it.

    A very nasty piece of work, indeed.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Gorgeously lensed and delightfully structured, however, this is, in a word, wonderful.

    The spirited interplay between Goodman and Crystal is both wacky and, dare I say, charming.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Smith's film is a celebration of quirkiness, eccentricity, and certain individuals' tendency to let it all hang out, and damn the consequences.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Far and away the most original thriller to come out of a major studio (in this case Columbia Pictures) in a long while.

    You’ve heard of guerrilla warfare? Buffalo Soldiers is all about guerilla capitalism.

    Skateboarding is not a crime, but the subject of this exhaustive documentary... is very much a criminal.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    To paraphrase Nathan McCall, this film makes you wanna holler.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Rarely have I seen a film so willing to champion the fallibility of the human heart.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A fine, near-seamless film that finally suffers slightly from an inability to wrap up its tale.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    The overall tone of this rocket-paced updating is exhilaratingly giddy, making it by far Disney’s best animated film since "Mulan."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    All of the major players turn in powerhouse performances, and Fishburne nails his best role yet as Furious.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's all patently ridiculous, but it's also ridiculously fun.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A kicky, knockout thriller that ingeniously taps into the current climate of paranoia surrounding personal privacy in the Information Age.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    As uncomfortable as it is to have your nose shoved in this nightmare, its unforgettable in its violent lyricism and the bloody power of its message.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Sublimely ridiculous film.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A touching (and at times horrific) -- albeit overlong -- Christ allegory, that scores not so much on the strength of its convictions as it does on the truly remarkable performances it elicits from the cast.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Absolutely delightful filmmaking, chock-full of gorgeously goofy animation and a storyline that cleverly echoes everything from "Stalag 17" to "Cool Hand Luke."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's the best-looking film of the year, hands down, and Thornton is dazzling, a dull diamond in the gutter rough.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Trekkies is a hilarious work, mining the psychology of the average and not-so-average Trek fan, and coming up with the answers to all your burning questions about the show and its devoted following.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Not only the best date movie of the year, it's also a -- dare I say it twice -- delightfully charming -- and totally American, I might add -- slice of comedic bliss.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    Remarkable debut feature by New Yorker Ben Younger.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    It's all fab, baby, a kicky, wiggy sequel that scores on all levels, from the sexy to the sublime.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Marc Savlov
    A razor-wire-taut (and extremely violent) exploration of what happens when good guys go bad, badder, baddest.
