    Compared to manipulative tearjerkers like "Pay It Forward" or "Men of Honor," Billy Elliot is a model of restraint, one that earns its warmth the hard way -- by making us care about the people who are going through familiar steps.

    The strength of the performances, along with the good will generated by these flawed but likable characters, carry the movie through.

    Past the foreign mysticism and eccentricity of Tibetan Buddhism to portray its characters as unmistakably, identifiably human.

    The movie is small and familiar, but this time, those turn out to be strengths.

    If nothing else, Startup.com is a pointed reminder that mixing business and friendship never, ever works.

    May prove too dark to make the list of Schwarzenegger's biggest hits. But the movie suggests the actor still has a lot to offer -- and he's willing to take some chances, too. Welcome back, Arnold.

    It's all speed, movement and blood -- lots and lots of blood.

    Streep is simply amazing to behold, an actress who invests every fiber of her being -- every gesture, every inflection, every strand of hair -- into her performance.

    This is a small, intimate movie bound to get lost in the holiday shuffle, but its pleasures are worth seeking out.

    After a leisurely first half, The Devil's Backbone becomes utterly spellbinding, its tension mounting in steady increments, its story taking one dark turn after another, and its bittersweet resolution destined to haunt you long after you've left the theater.

    While the film is undeniably melancholy, Moretti's trademark light touch keeps it from becoming overbearing.

    Style is the main attraction in The Limey -- it's as close to experimental filmmaking as mainstream movies get -- but the film works well when taken simply as a pure revenge drama, too.

    Eclectic, grandly engaging documentary.

    Kitano's most enjoyable, flat-out fun movie, provided you can stomach the violence.
    • 44 Metascore

    This genial, lyrical little movie seems guaranteed to broaden Kitano's fan base in the United States.

    Shower is also a comedy -- but it's the movie's melancholy streak that is its strongest asset.

    Joy Ride is also surprisingly funny, thanks mostly to Zahn.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A wonderfully rumpled, loose comedy about the paralyzing fear of failure.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    An exploration of how fear and mob rule can poison even the purest of souls.

    It's a simple message, and it's delivered with a grace and subtlety that's rare in would-be blockbusters.

    Exuberant, often hilarious.
    • 45 Metascore

    Impossible to watch passively. It may be a work of pure fiction, with the requisite preposterous plot turns, but it still has the air of a ''what if?'' scenario, and it is perfectly, thoroughly chilling.

    The movie is not without its pleasures. Chief among them is Sean Connery's robust performance.

    Carrey's amazing transformation in Man on the Moon does justice to Kaufman's undefinable talents and his peculiar outlook on entertainment.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie isn't a thriller, but it has the tension of a thriller, and its cool, icy tone, deliberate pacing and clean, antiseptic lines are reminiscent of Kubrick and Antonioni.
    • 59 Metascore

    The movie ultimately turns out to be less about sex than it is about the point in a friendship where two people decide they will both be better off if they part ways.

    If The Magdalene Sisters occasionally flirts with cartoonishness, the movie is tempered by Mullan's considerable filmmaking skills.
