    Despite its shock value, Thirteen rises above dysfunctional-family-drama cliches, thanks to the truthfulness of its script and the keen eye of a sympathetic director.

    Succinct yet detailed storytelling, evocative cinematography (by Ellen Kuras) and arresting central performances add up to a trio of engaging character portraits.

    It manages to be both kinetic and dream-like at the same time -- "Run Lola Run" by way of David Lynch.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Frustratingly superficial.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    A gentle comedy, brimming with hope and faith in human resilience.

    Purists will probably have a conniption at the mere idea of messing with the form, but the worst thing about Jacquot's post-modern treatment is that its incongruity wrenches you out of the story.

    This modest little film out of Africa suffers from largely rudderless direction, relying for any sense of profundity on the breathtaking beauty of Abraham Haile Biru's cinematography.

    Clarkson, the reigning queen of the indies, is simultaneously funny and heartbreaking, following up killer performances in "The Station Agent" and "All the Real Girls."
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Infused with the hazy golden glow of nostalgia and unfolds at a leisurely pace, reminiscent of "The Virgin Suicides."
    • 69 Metascore

    Cadigan is honest enough to leave in a disturbing scene in which he talks about the "violent imagery" in his head and fantasizes about using a kitchen knife on his mother, before breaking down in tears. It's raw stuff.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    If you give yourself over to it, this romantic tale of a liberating one-night stand proves oddly seductive and generates a warm afterglow.

    This is what IMAX was made for: Strap on a pair of 3-D goggles, shut out the real world, and take a vicarious voyage to the last frontier -- space.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Paints a picture of a young man enamored of his own image. His enormous success turned the ever-cocky Gator egomaniacal -- and abusive.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    An amusing side dish to the sober political documentaries flooding the art houses, The Yes Men effectively uses high farce to mock the status quo as a way of questioning it.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Very funny. It's also heartbreakingly sad.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    The feel-good finale -- an ending even less in doubt than that of the most predictable Hollywood fare -- is as rousing as you'd hope and the fast-paced, on-ice action is satisfyingly authentic.

    Presumably, Deville wants to show life returning to normal after WWII, but in the context of this inert movie, "normal" equals "tedious."
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    A tour de force that is weird, wacky and wonderful.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Behind the glitz, Hollywood is sordid and disgusting. Quelle surprise!
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    A fanciful little indie brimming with emo music and curious little vignettes, marks a self-conscious but very promising debut for "Scrubs" star Zach Braff.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    A worthy addition to the cinematic canon, which, at last count, numbered 52 different versions.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    A documentary mosaic of kooky Americana.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Megan Lehmann
    Paints a vivid portrait of a compelling young man but, perhaps inevitably, goes overboard on the deification.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Keaton's overamped girlishness, and the adolescent shenanigans she engages in, make a mockery of this overlong romantic comedy's stance as a celebration of mature love.

    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    Its "I see dead people" premise is shopworn, but Hong Kong brothers Oxide and Danny Pang manage to deliver real skin-prickling jolts with their minimalist horror film.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    An energetic, feel-good blend of comedy, romance and benign drama -- with a side dish of social commentary -- that works despite its strict adherence to the culture clash/generation gap formula.

    If it weren't for the estrogen-fueled action scenes -- choreographed by director Cory Yuen with wit and style -- So Close would be as disposable as the shampoo ad it all too often resembles.

    The concert footage is stirring, the recording sessions are intriguing, and -- on the way to striking a blow for artistic integrity -- this quality band may pick up new admirers.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    At once, a joyful celebration of female friendship and an unusually honest look at newly responsible young women wistfully saying goodbye to the dreams of their youth.

    If you like your language blue and your humor coarse, Margaret Cho is for you.
