    Hartley's debut deserves heralding; he combines a rigorous social conscience with the exuberance of fresh comic thinking.

    Within its small, darkly funny range, Trust is an exceptional film that stays alert to the mysteries of love.

    Amateur is Hartley heaven, a sharp-witted thriller that takes off into dark and uncharted territory.

    The Doors is a thrilling spectacle - the King Kong of rock movies - featuring a starmaking, ball-of-fire performance by Val Kilmer as Morrison.

    The boldness of director Danny DeVito's violent epic is matched by Nicholson's astonishing physical and vocal transformation into Jimmy Hoffa.

    Rogen and Heigl step up to the plate with a tougher task from Coach Apatow: Nail every laugh and the emotions underlying them. No worries. They knock it out of the park.

    For those who don't believe that truth trumps fiction for whacked-out depravity, mark this shockingly fierce and funny spellbinder as Exhibit A.

    Dahan's impressionistic heartbreaker of a movie gets it all in. And Marion Cotillard, lip-syncing Piaf's songs and digging into her soul with gale-force urgency, gives a performance for the ages.

    The film belongs to Jolie. She won an Oscar for 1999's "Girl, Interrupted," but this is by far her best performance.

    It's a movie as timely as it is thrilling to watch.

    In a summer of dumb, shameless drivel, Moore delivers a movie of robust mind and heart. You'll laugh till it hurts.

    What makes Ratatouille such a hilarious and heartfelt wonder is the way Bird contrives to let it sneak up on you.

    It's hard to resist the film's exuberance.

    The movie is thunderously exciting, but what makes it resonate is the wrenching story we read on Damon's face. We've waited all summer for a wild ride to grab us with more than jolts. Now it's here. Hang on.

    It helps that the fun doesn't stop. It helps even more that the pitch-perfect script doesn’t step out of character for a joke.

    In Eastern Promises, shot to envelop by the great Peter Suschitzky, Cronenberg brings us face to face with the horror of self.

    Penn, in tandem with the superb cinematographer Eric Gautier (The Motorcycle Diaries), captures the majesty and terror of the wilderness in ways that make you catch your breath.

    Artfully exciting and compulsively watchable even at a butt-numbing 152 minutes, the film makes good on the promise New Zealand writer-director Andrew Dominik showed with "Chopper" in 2000.

    Lee is a true master, and his potently erotic and suspenseful Lust, Caution casts a spell you won't want to break.

    • 88 Peter Travers
    Deliberate, demanding and character-driven, Michael Clayton flies in the face of what sells at the multiplex. I couldn't have liked it more.

    All the acting is exemplary. Brody, new to Wes' World, is revelatory as Peter.

    It's Corbijn, shooting with a poet's eye in a harshly stunning black-and-white, who cuts to the soul of Ian's life and music. You don't watch this movie, you live it.

    Zemeckis springs so many pow 3-D surprises you'll think Beowulf is your own private fun house.
