    In casting an all-American Jersey girl and surrounding her with Manolo Blahniks and the Strokes, Coppola draws a connection between her audience (domestically, at least) and the doomed dauphine, who is likewise insulated and distracted from her country's pointless involvement in a disastrous foreign war that is bankrupting its government and starving its people – and all the while she spends, spends, spends.

    Monster is, at its best, simply a chronicle of people trying to get along, which makes it compelling viewing indeed.

    When the special effects aren’t getting in the way, the kids’ imaginary scenes have a hazy, shimmering quality, as if the potential of a long afternoon with no homework could be measured in waves.

    If the film had allowed them to fall in love in real time, instead of to the drumbeat of history, their relationship would seem immeasurably more nuanced.

    The result is a lyrical contrast of two contiguous cultures, worlds apart in their definitions of family and love but brought together by mutual awe and basic human need.

    Somewhere between the pop jouissance of Guy Ritchie and the social realism of Ken Loach, this ballsy drama freeze-frames bleak Thatcherite Yorkshire and exposes its racist underbelly.
    • 63 Metascore

    The film has no script; it goes from moment to moment unhurriedly.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    Qualitatively different from its cinematic forbears: It doesn't linger on the gothic curlicues of its source material, it moves straightforwardly from place to place, and it emphasizes the emotional development of its characters with dramatic interplay rather than expressionistic, atmospheric gloom.

    It recommends itself best to viewers who can appreciate its novelty and roll with the risks it takes.

    Offers more questions than answers. Even the Kurds, who seem the closest thing to a success story, long for a unified Iraq.

    The film’s approach suits an audience broader than the usual documentary crowd, though it’s worth mentioning that those pictures can really stay with you.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    No doubt some viewers could find fault with the slack pacing, though it's hardly inappropriate for a film that's fundamentally about emerging from frustration and stasis into a state of grace.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    A charming surprise, the kind of neat little low-budget movie that seems more like a collaboration among friends than it does a corporate investment.
    • 72 Metascore

    It sounds high-minded, but 3-Iron is in fact simple and economical, blessedly straighforward, absorbing, and hard to forget.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    Faultlessly truthful in its observations.
    • 72 Metascore

    More factual rigor wouldn't hurt, but directors Quinn and Walker delve instead into the lives of their subjects with a fly-on-the-wall candor, revealing as much about American life as they do of African life.

    The best surprise is Yuan, the daughter of Hong Kong actress Cheng Pei-Pei. She has great screen presence and invests Lichi with a mix of kitty-cat cuteness and hellcat ferocity.

    There's also a little something smarmy about the interactions between the lawyers and their clients, all of whom are poor.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    Cuddlier and more charming, this alcoholic-hitman comedy isn’t your typical Dahl noir (The Last Seduction, Red Rock West), but it is offbeat, lovably deadpan, and just tart enough.

    Funny Ha Ha is often offhandedly funny, and Bujalski has a knack for letting scenes build and then cutting out abruptly, duplicating the flow of a life in flux.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    Goofily funny, oddly tenderhearted mock-documentary.

    It's a call to arms, a call to pick sides in the deepening cultural, political, and spiritual schism between the two Americas of the 21st century.

    If Tears is indeed too weird to take America by storm – Miramax bought the film after Cannes and shelved it until it is now being released by Magnolia – it should neither be considered a cult item, approachable only to film nerds (though they will appreciate it best).

    Moments of black comedy break up the melodrama – a newsreel depicts the song's "victims" and a Nazi secretary rages against her Duden grammar manual – but the overall tone is still that of a four-alarm weeper.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    A pleasant, often beautiful, and surprisingly light-hearted film that affirms the human traits of resilience and intelligence while clearly denouncing the bellicose tendencies of nations and factions.

    It helps that J.K. Rowling’s third book in the series is full of spooky stuff that translates beautifully to screen.

    Eighteen short films by an international who's-who of filmmakers make up this omnibus celebrating the joys and sorrows of love and Paris, organized by neighborhood.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    It's a good bet for youth audiences (the PG-13 rating is for one instance of language) and finds plenty of thought-provoking subject matter courtside.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    Old Joy is an accurately observed slice of that moment between postadolescence and parenthood, when friends cling or scatter, and circumstances force buried feelings to the fore.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 78 Marrit Ingman
    It is an observant and effective study in character and setting, suitably grave and distinctively realized.
