    Moretti's performance is low-key but detailed. He makes the psychiatrist a fascinating guy, rather austere and restrained, a Northern Italian, not an expressive Neapolitan.

    Toback presents specific characters dealing with specific problems and, through their stories, somehow manages to take the temperature of the times.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Playful and energized enough to keep an audience guessing.

    A sympathetic look at what it's like to be a Brazilian transsexual prostitute working in Milan.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Has enough wit, energy and geniality to please everyone.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A complicated and stylish Korean thriller that will make viewers' skin crawl.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    One of the few big-fish horror films that still has the power to surprise.

    Either Shelton knows this world well, or he's such a great bluffer it doesn't matter.

    Elizabeth works in a number of ways. It's a feminist film. It's also a kind of spy thriller and a superior historical drama.

    O
    O has one advantage over "Othello" -- since it's a new movie, not a classic, it has the power to surprise.

    Go
    A nasty little picture with a lot of wit and impudence.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The result is a worthy woman's film and Jolie's best showcase to date.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The results are comical and unexpected -- and just a bit eerie.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's no masterpiece, but it's real.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's amazing how far a movie can go on nothing but speed and directness.
    • 33 Metascore

    While it's possible to have a great time with the movie without having any interest in Kiss, it should be noted that the band does make an appearance.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    May hit a few wrong notes, but it strikes an emotional chord.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    An audacious film, set in contemporary Marseille.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Not as simple as it looks, though its appeal is simple: Robert Redford goes to prison, and James Gandolfini ("The Sopranos") is the warden. That's a movie worth seeing right there.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    This is one light comedy whose seriousness, hours later, lingers in the mind.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A first-rate action movie, slickly done and with so many imaginative bonuses that, for a time, it feels like a classic in the making. It's not, but it's still solid and entertaining [1 June 1990]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The result is a winning comedy.
    • 47 Metascore

    Appealing movie, one of the summer's pleasant surprises.

    Both Mastrantonio and Harris are terrific, never missing a beat, always convincing, even when playing the most extreme emotions. [9 Aug 1989, Daily Datebook, p.E1]
    • San Francisco Chronicle
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A powerful document of cruelty and sadism.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Has a goofy enthusiasm for itself that's contagious.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A melancholy, well-observed film.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It has a life and style that other buddy action movies lack
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    What The Banger Sisters offers in place of an eloquent statement is the charm of two actresses at the top of their game in flashy roles and a smart script that's decidedly more coarse than sentimental.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Subdued yet percolating with suppressed emotion.
