    A comedy as black as the asphalt desert of a mall parking lot.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    Brilliantly idiosyncratic.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    In place of elaborate sets, clever filmmaking gives the impression of a central London emptied of people and cars, to eerie effect - and this opening reel is nothing short of magnificent.

    One of the year's most engaging films.

    Hilariously overblown, "Cruelty" fairly pops at the seams with the beloved eccentricity of Joel and Ethan Coen, from the fiendishly ludicrous scenarios and casually tossed off visual gags to the razor-sharp repartee.

    Even with Burton's imagination turning its trademark cartwheels, the film's big beating heart holds the whimsical offshoots steady.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    More than a celebration of Chaplin's art; it is a thorough examination of what made this gifted artist, the world's first true celebrity, tick.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    A stunning display of a filmmaker adventuring on the far side of what's possible.
    • 87 Metascore

    More than a ripped-from-the- headlines drug drama, Maria Full of Grace is like a horror movie made real.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    Anderson gives The Machinist a sickly noirish look that contributes to the creeping horror - but it's the emaciated Bale's spectral presence that leaves the imprint.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Megan Lehmann
    Devoid of 21st-century irony, this visually stunning, action-packed yuletide treat is sweet and, yes, magical in a way that will enchant kids and give older viewers a twinge of nostalgia.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Some of the visual flourishes are a little too obvious, but restrained and subtle storytelling, and fine performances make this delicate coming-of-age tale a treat.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    A gentle comedy, brimming with hope and faith in human resilience.
    • 49 Metascore

    Director Timothy Linh employs a delicate - but never sentimental - touch which, combined with strong performances from the principals and Kramer Morgenthau's vivid cinematography, makes for a transporting experience.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Kosashvili's clear-eyed approach to the cultural tradition of arranged marriage balances respect and scorn, and he reconciles the comedy and tragedy inherent in Zaza's tug-of-love with finesse.

    • 75 Megan Lehmann

    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    As transporting as its otherworldly title suggests.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    It's a hushed work of restrained emotions, elliptical storytelling and spare dialogue, peopled with smart, authentic characters who have drawn you into their lives before you know it.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Part urban thriller, part unorthodox love story, this well-acted portrayal of the shadowy realm occupied by London's illegal immigrants is buoyed by stinging social commentary and a surprising twist of intelligent humor.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Builds steadily from its smarter-than-your-average-horror-film beginnings to a genuinely cunning psychological thriller with a third-act twist guaranteed to shock even the most eagle-eyed watchers.
