    • 100 Neil Young
    Derki and his experienced editor Anne Fabini have crafted a sober, sobering bulletin of unambiguous intention and undeniable power.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Neil Young
    An exceptional animated feature from Spain, Wrinkles imaginatively and sensitively explore one of the major issues confronting most of the developed world: how to look after senior citizens in a rapidly aging population.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Neil Young
    Hogg achieves remarkable results with the most minimal of means. Camerawork and editing are consistently on the money, while performances and dialogue feel utterly fresh, spontaneous and believable.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Neil Young
    A superbly sensual character study of a young woman navigating emotional and professional crossroads.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Neil Young
    The last couple of years in one tragically truncated life are chronicled with a winning combination of sensitivity and humor in I Am Breathing.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Neil Young
    Berliner crafts a quietly touching and illuminating memento mori from the steady dying of an intellectual light.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Augustine's script is a coherent and valid artistic reinterpretation of the case, told against an unfussily atmospheric evocation of late 19-century Paris - persuasive even though the dialogue seldom sounds particularly old-fashioned.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    [A] solidly effective addition to Britain's social realism tradition, elevated by excellent performances by the young leads and some unexpectedly poetic touches.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A luminous central performance from Golshifteh Farahani distinguishes an ambitious if somewhat monotonously wordy adaptation of a prize-winning best-seller.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    [A] claustrophobically discomfiting but quizzically comic study of social unease and embarrassment.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    An unassuming and suitably gentle-paced charmer.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A deliberately distanced but often harrowing vision of a living hell.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Crucially, Jung and Boileau manage to convey the bonds of affection and love that hold this unusual family together, in a manner that will ring a moving chord with many who have experienced similar circumstances.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case is a professional, straightforward example of the behind-the-headlines sub-genre, executed in slick high-toned digital video and eschewing the soundtrack music so ubiquitous in documentaries nowadays.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    De Oliveira evokes the suffocating, stultifying confines of the family dwelling all too convincingly, to an extent that requires considerable indulgence and attention from his audience. This investment is duly repaid in the second half.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    This quietly impassioned indictment of child-labor takes its time to get going but then builds steadily to a surprisingly strong finale.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Neil Young
    It all barrels along with a certain good-natured brio, even if ultimately falling short of bringing much that's new to what's already an overstocked table.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Neil Young
    What should be a clammy exercise in claustrophobic, queasy tension becomes, in the hands of writer/director James DeMonaco, an underpowered compendium of over-familiar scare tactics and sledgehammer-subtle social satire.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Neil Young
    There's plenty of time for the viewer to muse on what The Wall might or might not symbolize -- when events finally take an abruptly surprising and violent turn, the tonal shift is unsatisfyingly awkward.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Neil Young
    Sal
    While this heartfelt, rough-edged tribute to now largely-forgotten Hollywood actor Sal Mineo isn’t without interest, it’s too small-scale and sketchy.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Neil Young
    For the first time his ongoing collaboration with scriptwriter Paul Laverty, Loach's studiously safe-hands approach -- typified by regular collaborator George Fenton's near-incessant score -- can't counterbalance fundamental screenplay flaws.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    Paying slavish homage to culty genre predecessors from the sixties, seventies and eighties, this steamy tale of a hunky screenwriter, his ethereal blood-sucking paramour and her bad-girl sister can't quite decide whether to be seductively stylish or knowingly cheesy.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    The impression is that De Palma is indulging himself with homages to his own Hitchcockian greatest hits, with results that veer close to self-parody on occasion and emphasize just how far this once-outstanding director's creative star has plummeted.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    There's little in the way of genuine depth, complexity or nuance here, Diaz instead seeks to convey the illusion of profundity by having various characters throw around weighty social and philosophical verbiage in thuddingly sophomoric fashion.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    Awkwardly condensing more than 20 years into a running-time well under two hours, director/co-writer Cao Hamburger needs a bigger canvas for his well-intentioned but underpowered saga.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    The foursome (most of whom will be in their 30s by the middle of 2015) have long since settled comfortably into their roles, and there's pleasure to be gleaned from the simple physical and verbal rough-housing of their interactions.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Neil Young
    Pretty pictures alone do not in themselves great cinema make - not for the first time, Reygadas' waywardly wilful approach to screenwriting and structure severely outweighs whatever fleeting pleasures his movies may impart.
