    More than an appreciation, Pete Seeger: The Power of Song is an inspiration.

    It is rich with ideas and contemplations and packed with the sort of existential jokes that tickle the Coen boys so.
    • 93 Metascore

    A masterful synthesis of generic conventions and creative imagination, a sublime amalgam of some of the best tendencies and talent our times have to offer.

    Love means being helpmates throughout all of life's stages. Death is part of love's bargain, and Haneke lays this fact bare.

    Among the many things that Baadasssss! is, it is also a movie about moviemaking. In fact, the film should be a primer for anyone about to make an independent film.

    At the very least, The Aristocrats provides a survey of some of the best comic minds in the business.

    Proves to be a wonderful reality check.

    Cast aside any preconceived expectations you might have regarding this documentary and remember simply this: Winnebago Man is one of the best films you're going to see all year.

    There is little in the way of narrative eventfulness in the film, but Leigh luxuriates in the moments, and provides glimpses of what it takes to be an artist amid the fray.

    Scores its ultimate coup de grace though its interviews. Macdonald has lined up an amazing collection of interviewees.

    As things turn out, Clooney’s butt is just one of the many delights to be found on a trip to Solaris.

    This Romeo & Juliet is a rich visual feast, besotted with the fervor of its acrobatic camerawork and kinetic staging and its mind-bending aggregation of unrelated but resonant fragments of 20th-century iconography.

    The end result is a delightful, though a smidge too long, reminder of one of the reasons we so enjoy going to the movies: perchance to dream.

    As good as it ever was, and improved slightly by hindsight, experience, and extra cash.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 89 Marjorie Baumgarten
    A big generational saga that woos the audience with its humor, spirit, style, and ability. Genius here is an evolutionary thing.

    Up
    We will be comparing Up with classics like "The Wizard of Oz" for years to come.

    It’s an enchanting work, heartbreaking yet wryly amusing.

    Holy Motors is as individualistic a movie as you're likely to encounter – both in terms of the filmmaker's intent and the viewer's takeaway. Warmth and humor abide within its every frame but, like Carax's dreamer at the film's outset, you must find the key within yourself that unlocks the mysteries.

    A stunning work of beauty, mystery, contemplation, and grit -- and like sands through the desert hourglass, these are the days of our lives.

    A gripping presentation of a little-known true story and its historical lessons.

    Co-directors Rubin and Shapiro deliver the rare documentary that totally entertains, informs, and inspires.

    Probably the ultimate writers' film, but it's also a brash, daring, and dynamic film -- as delicate as an orchid but as durable and malleable as the species.

    Eastwood finds the humorous aspects of the character as well, no more so than when the appetite of the widower who lives on beef jerky and Pabst Blue Ribbon becomes the center of attention among the Hmong women cooks.

    A truly provocative essay.

    Instead of using actors, Greengrass employed many of the actual air traffic controllers and military commanders who were on the ground that day. Also aiding his film's universality is Greengrass' use of little known actors in the central roles, preventing stardom from affecting our ideas about heroism and patriotism.
