    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A dreamy, passionate ode to freedom -- of thought, of expression, of every person's innate right to simply be.
    • Miami Herald
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Without a hint of sanctimony, it is a love story as much about soul as heart.
    • Miami Herald
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    In a film overstuffed with tragedy, the most painful one might be the gradual transformation of Fernando's moral and intellectual indignation into a weary, cynical detachment.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Brings the viewer up close and personal with the face of evil.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    More than once during The Fast Runner (Atanarjuat), it's easy to forget you're watching a movie.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    One of the most rewarding and engaging movies of the year. Don't miss it.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    American Splendor reminds you that sometimes, simply getting out of bed each morning can be the most heroic of acts.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    That broad range of subject matter is indicative of the messy, meandering structure of the movie. But if Moore fails to tie this unwieldy movie into a lucid thesis, at least every tangent he chases down has its own payoff.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Movies like Monsters, Inc. literally make you feel like a kid again, marveling at the joyously inventive sights before you, and that's a feat that should not be taken lightly.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    An overwhelmingly tactile experience. Scott brings you so close into the action, the grit and smoke and blood seem to spill off the screen and into your head.
    • Miami Herald
    • 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."
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    There's nothing in the utterly enchanting Raising Victor Vargas you haven't seen before; you'd just be hard-pressed to name another movie that did it as well.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    For now, The Two Towers feels like the second installment in what next year, when Frodo finally reaches Mount Doom and the story draws to a close, we'll surely be hailing as a masterpiece.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The Exorcist has lost none of its ability to invade your nightmares.
    • Miami Herald
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Raucous look at an equally raucous phenomenon.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A searing, heartbreaking metaphor for the futility of war.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The results, for the most part, aren't pretty. The newly expanded Balseros, which adds an hour of footage to the previous film, is an even more compelling, if grimmer, work than the original.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    At two hours, the movie is probably 15 minutes too long -- the final half-hour in particular could have used some trimming -- but complaining about having too much of a good thing makes one sound like a grouch.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    If The Pianist isn't quite as devastating as "Schindler's List" -- the movie with which all other Holocaust movies must be compared -- it's because Polanski isn't interested in an expansive view of the war.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A remarkable movie that merits a place alongside "The Executioner's Song" and "In Cold Blood" as an unforgettable depiction of tragedy in the heartland.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A big, bold movie that gets at undeniable truths about the way no one, no matter how powerful, is immune from manipulation.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    If "The Sixth Sense" was Shyamalan's take on ghost stories and "Unbreakable" his ode to comic books, then Signs is the evil cousin to Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    One frenetic movie that doesn't know when to quit -- and leaves you wishing it could go on forever.
    • Miami Herald
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Impossible to resist.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie isn't just hilarious: It's witty and inventive, too, and in hindsight, it isn't even all that dumb.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Unabashedly frank in its depiction of sex -- too frank, probably, for more discreet viewers -- but it's never exploitive or seedy.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The summer movie season has barely begun, and already we have its first big surprise.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    It just requires an open mind, a love of film and a willingness to dream.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Delivers all the expected moments of high suspense --that is worthy of Hitchcock
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    This is a fiendishly complicated whodunit -- or, to be more precise, a who-done-what-to-whom-and-when -- told within the confines of thoughtful, speculative science-fiction.
