    Kirkman is shrewd enough to coax a wistful performance out of pretty boy Kip Pardue.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    A blithe, funny, and engaging movie.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    It's a beautiful and understated performance, one that hums with a richer, quieter music than Smith has mustered before.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    One of the happiest movies around.

    Is it really possible to make a comedy about abortion? Alexander Payne, who cowrote and directed this mischievous bit of sociological screwball, has brought it off.

    The first rock & roll kung fu videogame youth love story.

    Wiseman reveals the victims of domestic abuse in all of their pity and terror.

    It says a lot for Joel Schumacher's Flawless that you can see the picture's high-concept heart a mile away and still be won over by it.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    Michael Mann's tensely funny and alive Los Angeles night-world thriller, is, in its own twisty way, a very high-stakes buddy movie, yet it doesn't look like one, because it leaps off from a situation more jangled and threatening than we're used to.

    Ruby Sparks is a romantic comedy that takes off from a premise so fanciful it needs every bit of the freshness that Dano brings it.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    The film offers evidence that Vicious spent the entire night out cold on barbiturates. It plants resonant doubts.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    You know you're in the hands of a true filmmaker when you feel invited, at every turn, to share his sense of entrancement. I got that feeling in just about every frame of American Beauty.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    A stylish B horror movie about giant insects in the catacombs of Manhattan, it's by turns queasy, gross, terrifying, and -- never underestimate this one -- enthusiastically dumb. It's everything you want in a big-bug thriller.

    Mysterious Skin dawdles more than it flows, but it comes alive whenever Araki, hovering between tragedy and voyeurism, reveals how sex can tear lives to pieces.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    A little too programmed in its despair, but it coasts along on the jagged music of the modern lothario's song.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    When C-Diddy (a.k.a. David Jung), in his samurai superman suit, does his note-perfect, lip-twisting, belly-jiggling manic mime of Extreme's ''Play With Me,'' it's hard not to grin and admit that, yes, this is almost an art form.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    In Shine a Light, a crackling concert movie directed by Martin Scorsese, the Rolling Stones are now so old that they seem new again.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    He rarely allowed himself to be interviewed, but Henri Cartier-Bresson, here nearing 100, comes off as a marvelous, spritely, and companionable figure.

    Up through its first half, The Age of Innocence is a masterfully orchestrated tale of romantic yearning.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    It evokes the spirit of Hitchcock and Highsmith.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    The Negotiator, once it gets going (there's a rather lengthy prosaic setup), is a satisfyingly tense and booby-trapped thriller about the meeting of two relentless minds.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    The movie is like a less original "WALL•E," but it's still vibrant and touching.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    Chesney makes an art form out of strolling down the catwalk while singing. He turns each song into a blissed-out journey homeward.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    The whole movie is a diversionary activity. It's trash so compacted it glows.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    There's no denying its grip: It is lurid, fascinating, sickening, and eye-opening.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    Passionate and saucy comedy.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    An alienated-teen movie that surfs along on the whims and casual cruelties of its central character runs a risk: It can wind up as random and undisciplined as she is. Instead, Little Birds is a touching and distinctive achievement.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    Bellflower is stylishly watchable - even when it's preposterous.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Owen Gleiberman
    Director David Gelb pulls back the curtain on the kitchen rituals of sushi, inviting us to experience the savory-smooth sensation of ''umami,'' roughly translated as ''Ahhh!''
    • 71 Metascore

    The hit-and-run outlandishness of "Clerks" was a stunt. With Chasing Amy, Smith has made his first real movie.
