    Elegantly witty and haunting . . . McKellen gives the performance of his career . . . and Brendan Fraser excels.

    The film is alive with delicacy and feeling...It's a beauty.

    Pedro Almodovar's transfixing tragicomedy -- the best foreign movie of the year -- is also the best showcase for actresses in ages.

    Ali
    Ali is a bruiser, unwieldy in length and ambition. But Mann and Smith deliver this powerhouse with the urgency of a champ's left hook.

    • 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.

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

    "Waves" is a spellbinder.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Gorgeous filmmaking that brims over with funhouse thrills and ravishing romance.

    Anderson offers no phony uplift for the Tenenbaums or for audiences. But he does know how to take a sad song and make it better. In these troubled times, that's a gift.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A uniquely hypnotic and haunting love story sparked by Nicolas Cage and Elisabeth Shue at their career best.
    • Rolling Stone

    That Linklater pulls off the innovative feat with hypnotic assurance is nothing short of amazing.

    Forget Oscar, Ocean's Eleven is the coolest damned thing around.
    • 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.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A marvel of delicacy and humor.

    Whether or not Casino meets your expectations, it delivers the rush you only get from an audacious gamble.

    Cage, who gives a blazing, imposive performance, uses his haunted eyes to reveal the emotional scars that Frank can't heal.

    The crazy-ass imagination at work in Being John Malkovich hits you like a blast of pure oxygen...this movie of constant astonishments will make you laugh hard and long.

    Only some bumpy, arid passages in the script keep The Others out of the master class occupied by the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and, my favorite, 1961's "The Innocents."
    • 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.

    • 90 Peter Travers
    The challenge is exhilarating. You can discover a lot about yourself by getting lost in Mulholland Drive. It grips you like a dream that won't let go.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    A movie heart-breaker of oddball wit and startling grace.
    • 73 Metascore

    Maguire and Dunst keep Spider-Man on a high with their sweet-sexy yearning, spinning a web of dazzle and delicacy that might just restore the good name of movie escapism.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    A burst of pure filmmaking exhilaration that manages to pay homage to the classic 1960s TV series and still boldly go where no man, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy included, has gone before.

    Eastwood's modest approach to these momentous events shames the usual Hollywood showboating. In a rare achievement, he's made a film that truly is good for the soul.

    Tone-deaf but thunderously exciting.

    DiCaprio, in his most haunting and emotionally complex performance yet, is the vessel Scorsese uses to lead us through the film’s laby­rinth.

    One-word reaction: bravo.
