    • 50 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A movie that advances the career of a demonstrably gifted filmmaker, a fearlessly funny movie whose laughs draw blood, a bracingly provocative movie that won't apologize for its bad temper.

    Tadpole may be small, but it's something special -- a cheeky comedy knockout.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    The acting is top-notch, and LaPaglia, who makes the cop's torment palpable, gives the performance of his career.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A dynamite bundle from British writer-director Guy Ritchie. Even when the accents are as indecipherable as the plot, Ritchie keeps the action percolating and the humor on high.

    • 90 Peter Travers
    Nunez finds a striking lyricism in simple lives that inspires an uncommonly fine cast and ranks him as a world-class filmmaker.

    • 90 Peter Travers
    Offers something magical in the haunting and hypnotic performance of Sarah Polley...(the film) cuts deep.
    • Rolling Stone
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A tornado of laughs based on the black experience as lived by these four insightful jokers, instead of as filtered through the Hollywood formula.

    "Waves" is a spellbinder.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    This hilarious and humane film nails its subject -- not just the unshaved armpits and the lack of underwear -- and marks Moodysson as a talent to watch.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Unique and unforgettable.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Detractors will see the usual parade of repressed feelings in a Masterpiece Theatre setting. Those who look closer will find one of the best films of the year.

    • 90 Peter Travers
    Waggish fun like this is too good to miss.

    Lane is a force of nature. Her slow-burning, fiercely erotic performance charges the movie.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers

    • Rolling Stone
    • 64 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    An uneven movie that nonetheless bristles with stinging wit and exerts a perverse fascination.
    • Rolling Stone
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Mitchell gives this post-punk, neo-glam rock extravaganza everything in his loaded arsenal of talents. He gets the sound right, the look right, the fun right and - this is crucial - the pain right.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Let the unsettling secrets of this outrageously funny and steadily engrossing meditation on the life of two high school misfits after graduation catch you by surprise. It's that good.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    It's unmissable, flaws and all, because riveting suspense spiced with diabolical laughs and garnished with a sprig of kinky romance add up to the tastiest dish around.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Begins like an episode of "I Love Lucy" and ends with the impact of "Easy Rider."
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Before this trippy, mesmerizing movie swerves out of control, it delivers an exhilarating and challenging ride.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Get your titles straight -- this is the good one, and a roaring good time.
    • Rolling Stone
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Unforgiven is the most provocative western of Eastwood's career, and with Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman and Richard Harris along for the ride, it's also the most potently acted.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Irresistibly deranged.
    • Rolling Stone
    • 82 Metascore

    • Rolling Stone
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A maliciously funny and keenly observant movie -- director-writer Patrick Stettner makes a potent feature debut -- that serves its humor dark and without artificial sweeteners.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Instead of the easy attitudinizing that is the default position for teen comedies, Gimme the Loot fills each frame with raw talent and exuberance.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    Nightcrawler curves and hisses its way into your head with demonic skill. When the laughs come, they stick in your throat. This is a deliciously twisted piece of work. And Gyllenhaal, coiled and ready to spring, is scarily brilliant. He truly is a monster for our time.
