    Like "Amelie," Micmacs is visually dazzling, the ravishing images coming courtesy of "La Vie en Rose" cinematographer, Tetsuo Nagata.

    The director's biggest stroke of genius was casting Baruchel.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 100 Pam Grady
    Dazzling turns by stars Eddie Marsan, Martin Compston and Gemma Arterton; unrelenting suspense; and a wealth of black humor will appeal to an arthouse crowd, though the violence and other unsavory aspects of the story will turn off some.

    Part saga of days gone by, part psychological portrait of the mountaineering spirit, as well as a tale of adventure, Anthony Geffen's documentary will rivet fans of the sport and history buffs alike.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Pam Grady
    Sensual and romantic with a heavy dose of the supernatural and populated by indelible characters.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Pam Grady
    A film with a big heart; it's an eccentric dramedy and a crowd pleaser.
    • 57 Metascore

    Control's Sam Riley steps into a role made unforgettable by a young Richard Attenborough in the 1947 original and makes it his own, slipping into the character like a second skin.

    An investigation into Pieter Bruegel the Elder's painting "The Way to Calvary," Majewski's film is a stunning piece of art in its own right.

    As entertaining as it is educational.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    That tension between silly comedy and poignant drama could have been dicey, but Stebbings and Harrelson maintain just the right balance between the two.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    The exquisite art and fairytale ambience will win over animation fans and children alike.
    • 75 Metascore

    It is a crackerjack thriller and a sensational calling card for the brothers Edgerton.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    The drama boasts a stellar cast, exquisite performances and a tense atmosphere. It is a film that the author's fans and lovers of mature, measured storytelling will embrace.

    • 90 Pam Grady
    The filmmakers have created a wrenching piece of work that allows the viewer to draw his own conclusions-and should make anyone of whatever political persuasion think about exactly what they mean when claiming to "support the troops."
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    Will appeal strongly to a mature audience drawn to robust characters, dry wit, and great performances.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    This could have been a slick little thriller. Instead, it evolves into the unfolding of an epic tragedy.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    The performances are spot on and so is the film's ever growing sense of horror.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    The film might have ended at its action-packed and ultimately moving climax, but screenwriter Steve Kloves goes one step farther. He finds the perfect cliffhanger, one that emphasizes just how dangerous young Mr. Potter's situation really is and definitely leaves the audience anxious for the next chapter.

    • 90 Pam Grady
    While the film is likely to find outright rejection among those who remain jittery with each turn in the War Against Terror, it should find a warm reception with fans of dark, outrageous humor.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    Wonderfully animated, witty and wildly imaginative.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    Stylish and funny.

    • 90 Pam Grady
    Stake Land is the movie "The Road" should have been.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Pam Grady
    Cornish's idiomatic dialogue is hilarious and the longtime comic's sense of timing is perfect.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    This drama is something of a miracle itself: a film dealing with religion that is refreshingly free of dogma.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    For the most part, though, Who Do You Love does a marvelous job of recreating the times and the music and, most of all, of bringing to life this behind-the-scenes giant of the music business.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    The action, fantasy and suspense elements are all highly enjoyable, but if the romance didn't work this movie would fall apart.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    There are gaps here and there, but it provides a fascinating introduction to a corner of film history that has gotten too little attention.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    Some points are driven home over and over again and that repetition robs the doc of a bit of its power, but overall Countdown to Zero is effective and frightening.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    Likely to resonate with a generation of young people to whom "When Harry Met Sally's" orgasm scene seems downright quaint.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Pam Grady
    This is one of those movies in which the lead character is so self-possessed, wise, well spoken and witty, that she sounds far too adult to be a teenager.
