    The best glimpse yet of what it's like to be in Iraq.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A suspense thriller of rare intelligence.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The film is mentally graphic, not sexually graphic.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Best of all, there's just the pleasure of seeing something that's both fantastic to the eye and emotionally dimensional. This is how to make action movies.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    So much love went into Hustle & Flow that it almost glows with it.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A one-joke documentary stretched, with surprising success, to full length.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    An entertaining slice of American political and cultural history.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A passionate, chronicle of an extraordinary artist, and a love story that can't be beat.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Will Smith has the right quality for the role -- he's an easy man to root for -- but he augments this by channeling some inner quality of desperation and need.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The Rodriguez segment is terrific; the Tarantino one long-winded and juvenile.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The right mix of humor and horror and with not even a shred of sentimentality.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    This is Baumbach's best yet.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Clever and enjoyable.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Though the movie has a handful of shots that are downright gross to witness, what makes The Orphanage scary is not what it threatens to show but what it suggests about life.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    An action sci-fi blockbuster extravaganza that provides cartoon thrills for thinking people. It's the best movie of its kind since the second "Spider-Man" movie four years ago.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this is probably the best movie so far this year about a kung-fu fighting panda.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    An amusing bauble.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    I won't tell you Taken is great, but it's great fun.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The movie is alive from beginning to end, and it's a pleasure to see at least one big-name director get out of the prison of his own reputation.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A lively experience.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Coco Chanel is not the most lovable of heroines, but it's a strength of the film that director Anne Fontaine allows Tautou to make Coco as cold and ungiving as she does.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's hard to sell people on a movie about grief, but A Single Man deserves recognition for being about something real that usually goes unexplored: The grief from which there really can be no return.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Perhaps the idea of watching Jeff Bridges as a drunken, broken-down, down-on-his luck country music singer in Crazy Heart doesn't automatically sound appealing. But think this: "The Wrestler." With good songs.
    • 55 Metascore

    Harry Brown has more to say, about aging, about old-school courtesy in collision with blind stupid violence, and about how sometimes pensioners on a fixed income get stuck in neighborhoods that turn dangerous.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    For at least a half hour, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is a brilliant and exciting film and seems almost sure to be one of the best of 2010. Then it becomes simply good. Then it becomes merely interesting. And then, about 15 minutes before the finish, it becomes dull and interminable.

    At its best, the effect is like seeing life panoramically, past and future, simultaneous and magnificent.
