    Unforgettably documents the kind of journey that leads not to easy answers, but rather to an even thornier knot of questions.

    Jeepers Creepers aimed for the archetypal primal spookiness of a scary campfire tale, and halfway succeeded. Here, Salva makes it work virtually every step of the way.

    Mann's moody Collateral unravels toward the end, faltering at its conclusion but dispensing enough atmosphere, characterization, and world-weary humanism along the way that audiences would be wise to enjoy the ride without worrying too much about the final destination.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Essentially just an above-average Hong Kong action movie, but as such, it's still far better than just about anything else Van Damme has done.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    As Overnight progresses and its title grows increasingly ironic, it paints a mesmerizing portrait of a profane, overbearing monster engaged in a drawn-out act of professional suicide.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Entertainingly captures the camaraderie and spirit of competition among the affable boarders as they battle nature in the form of imposing mountains, regular avalanches, and jagged rock formations.

    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    The Kill Team tells a compelling story, but the 79-minute runtime leaves that story feeling incomplete.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    A terrific cast, stylish direction, and elegantly choreographed mayhem help make it far better than it might have been -- Though ultimately silly, Equilibrium's shopworn but stylish synthesis of ammo and ideas is surprisingly engrossing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Film doesn’t suit Alan Partridge as well as other media, but Coogan and company have nevertheless delivered a consistently lively satirical comedy that would stand on its own merits, even if it wasn’t weighed down by expectations more than 20 years in the making.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Brody's Oscar victory and newfound star power might have secured Love The Hard Way its theatrical release, but his depth and charisma are what make the film haunting and surprisingly resonant.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    The Coens engineer a funny, entertaining battle of the sexes here, but the preponderance of indelible male characters and less memorable female roles render it something of a mismatch.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Hokey and convoluted, but as a sticky-hearted fable of redemption, it's surprisingly seductive.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    An auspicious debut for writer-director Michael Burke, the film makes a superb actor's showcase for Hirsch as well as Guiry.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    The film lets audiences be third parties in Coogan and Brydon’s dinner conversation. For lovers of words, comedy, and conversation, that’s an awfully hard proposition to pass up.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Wolf Creek is the kind of well-executed sleazefest that makes audiences feel not just creeped-out but downright dirty, as if it would take a three-hour-long shower just to wash all the grit and grease away.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Kink sometimes feels like a promotional film not just for the website it empathetically chronicles, but also for the sex-positive ethos it embodies. But it’s also unexpectedly convincing, and at times even moving in its paradoxical conception of liberation through degradation, and empowerment through submission.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    At its best, Lost Embrace conveys, with real warmth, the hopelessly intertwined pasts and shared futures of a community of outsiders and immigrants. At worst, it's a sitcom without a laugh track.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Palindromes becomes a strangely compelling fractured fable, a grim cinematic fairy tale heightened by Nathan Larson's delicate, bittersweet score.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    For neophyte cinephiles, A Decade Under The Influence should serve as a lively primer on a seminal film era, but its reverent tone is antithetical to the rule-breaking spirit it celebrates.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Surprisingly successful blend of goofy political farce and sober family drama.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    A pleasant piece of commercial filmmaking, but as a satirical comedy, it's devoid of laughs and insight.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    A slick new meta-romantic comedy selling a transparent yet strangely irresistible fantasy of upscale romance among the beautiful but guarded.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Thankfully, it boasts a story that doesn't require a surplus of style to be compelling.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    Weekend Of A Champion is an immersive chronicle of a specific time and place in racing, but it’s also a film in a familiar Polanski mode, exploring a strong man at war with forces that could destroy him.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Nathan Rabin
    The story told by e-dreams is inherently compelling, full of dark humor drawn from a deep well of hubris and historical irony, but the film would be a lot sharper had the filmmakers not fallen under Park's charismatic cyber-spell.
