    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie asks tough, unflinching questions about America's responsibility to maintain world peace -- and the price we are willing to pay in order to accomplish that. Timely stuff, indeed.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Nothing fantastic or supernatural ever happens, but you can still feel cosmic forces at work behind the scenes, conspiring to repeatedly test the movie's characters, doling out reward and punishment in equal doses.

    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    This is a rare breed of crowd-pleaser: a big-hearted, generous movie that never patronizes the audience.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A very engrossing movie, the kind that gives shameless manipulation a good name.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The package is perfectly irresistible.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    More sour than sweet, but Steers knows that, even in a cruel, unsentimental world, there is room for forgiveness and hope. Just don't expect a hug.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    An uncommonly playful fright machine -- a fun house factory of scares.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Only a very stony heart could resist its pull.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Shows Jerry Seinfeld as you've never seen him before: being unfunny.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The world's newfound familiarity with the region's troubles only make Kandahar more compelling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Has the feverish intensity of a bad dream, leavened with a subversive sense of humor that is both sophisticated and cracked.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    In The Shape of Things, love doesn't just hurt: It bites, and bites deep.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Frida, the kaleidoscopic drama based on the life of the Mexican painter/feminist/icon Frida Kahlo, was directed by Julie Taymor, which is the movie's first blessing.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    If Heaven doesn't quite achieve the transcendent power that Kieslowski might have attained, it comes close. One shot in particular, with the couple making love under a tree in silhouette, is a thing of quiet, sublime beauty that is eloquent in a way words never could be.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    An uncommonly perceptive and finely shaded character drama.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is so cheerfully, furiously relentless, its contagious silliness wears you down.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Never crosses over into meanness, and even the most satirical character has a moment of empathy.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Watching this essentially good but misguided kid slide into a hopeless future is both transfixing and heartbreaking.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Even if the movie loses its nerve at the end, that doesn't take anything away from Washington's performance.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Calling a comedy old-fashioned nowadays might seem like a backhanded compliment, but that's precisely what this genial, funny movie is.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Fast, wacky and bubbling with passion or dark, troubled and doomed. In the unusually titled crazy/beautiful, it's all those things at once.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The rare sort of movie that gives predictability a good name.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    There's a lot more at work in this raucously entertaining movie than cross-dressing clichés.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The most enjoyable piece of pop fantasy of the summer; sleek, elegant, exciting and wildly, outrageously imaginative.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    If I were 8, I would want to see it 800 times.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    There's a terrible beauty to the work of Larry Clark, the controversial photographer turned filmmaker, that transcends chic nihilism.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Even in its somewhat unwieldy form, Catch Me If You Can is charming, sparkling entertainment.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    An impressionistic portrait of the seductive nature of evil.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    It's the cinematic equivalent of a good page-turner, and even if it's nonsense, its claws dig surprisingly deep.
