    Bell explodes onscreen in a performance that cuts to the heart without sham tearjerking. Look for Billy to blast off.

    Howard lays off the manipulation to tell the true story of the near-fatal 1970 Apollo 13 mission in painstaking and lively detail. It's easily Howard's best film.

    Watching De Niro take Paul through his first panic attack ("I'm crying like a woman") is an unalloyed joy.

    Mamet -- crafts tangy, well-seasoned dialogue that a good cast can feast on. And this cast is prime.
    • 73 Metascore

    Steadily engrossing and devilishly funny, and, o brother, does it look sharp.

    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.

    • 90 Peter Travers
    Setting it against the backdrop of a wanton city under siege, Schroeder crafts a film of whiplash urgency.

    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.
    • 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.

    The acting is top-notch, and LaPaglia, who makes the cop's torment palpable, gives the performance of his career.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Peter Travers
    Under the astute direction of Danny DeVito, who does a sly turn as Oliver's attorney, this acid-dipped epic of revenge is killingly funny and dramatically daring.
