    Leaves you in a state of stunned, exhilarated awe, both for what it shows and how it shows it.

    The movie is a polished (and irresistible) piece of crowd-pleasing formula and deserves to become a monster hit. But it is also a perfect showcase for the volcanic talents of the rotund comedian/musician/all-around wildman.

    Playful, effervescent comedy.

    For those who can tough it out -- and not everyone will -- Hunger is a searing experience. Just don't expect to have much of an appetite when it's over.

    Here, finally, is a Harry Potter picture that lives up to its potential -- that, plainly, LIVES.

    La Promesse (The Promise) makes filmmaking look easy. The movie is deceptively simple, a tight little drama about guilt and conscience in which the creators' strings are completely invisible. It's fine storytelling in its purest form. [31 Jan. 1997, p.27G]

    An excellent legal thriller elevated to superb drama by the actor's (Clooney) central performance.

    With a steely, unblinking resolve, Downfall stares into the abyss, but does not pretend to comprehend it.

    The performances by Teller and Woodley are so strong that when the tone starts to darken and the characters make some radical discoveries, all the usual trappings of adolescent angst melt away: You feel like you’re watching two real, complicated people.

    You also see a man, flawed and imperfect, finding his way through with his music, constantly searching for his place in the world.

    An artsy bore.

    Impossible to resist.

    Even for a sport already filled with horrific accidents and tales of unlikely survival, the mountain-climbing nightmare told in Touching the Void is astonishing.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A portrait of a family reeling with pain and resentment -- and rising to the challenge of dealing with it head-on.

    The movie is enchanting yet strangely menacing, and it becomes clear that Pawlikowski is no mere love fool.

    The Dark Knight is dark, all right: It's a luxurious nightmare disguised in a superhero costume, and it's proof that popcorn entertainments don't have to talk down to their audiences in order to satisfy them. The bar for comic-book film adaptations has been permanently raised.

    You could describe Read My Lips as a love story, but that would make the movie sound much more conventional than it really is. See it now, before the inevitable Hollywood remake flattens out all its odd, intriguing wrinkles.

    Although it deals with some monumental themes, Mademoiselle Chambon also feels wispy and inconsequential.

    Sometimes, love can feel like hate or annoyance — it is, as the title states, strange. But sometimes, more often than not, it can be a wonderful thing.

    Might have been unbearable if Linklater hadn't filled it with so much self-deprecating humor, undercutting the pretentiousness whenever it threatens to become too thick.

    Blancanieves is funny, inventive and daring enough to change the story’s ending, going out on a note of bittersweet, unexpected melancholy.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    An exuberant, appropriately cynical reinvention of the stalwart Broadway hit that deftly straddles the line between old-fashioned Hollywood musicals and experimental concoctions like last year's "Moulin Rouge."
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is filled with graphic sex scenes that leave nothing to the imagination — this film would make even John Waters blush — but there’s more at work here than shock value and sensationalism.

    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Here is an excellent crime thriller made with grown-ups in mind: Yep, it must definitely be fall.

    An exuberant, disarming entertainment.
    • Miami Herald

    It's a punchy, straight-up genre picture, a crime drama that might have once starred Charles Bronson or Steven Seagal.

    It just requires an open mind, a love of film and a willingness to dream.

    Juno comes on all wisecracking and aren't-we-clever, but don't be surprised if you find yourself getting choked up -- with happy tears -- by the end.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Although it is structured like a thriller, and its plot dominated by Benjamin's detective work, The Secret in Their Eyes is really a cautionary tale about the consequences of a life of too much apprehension and propriety.
