    The Exorcist has lost none of its ability to invade your nightmares.
    • Miami Herald

    • 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
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A searing, heartbreaking metaphor for the futility of war.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A joyous, amazingly detailed paean to imagination and personal expression that dares -- and succeeds -- to illustrate one of the most mysterious enigmas of all: the creative process.
    • 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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Remarkably astute and devastatingly funny.
    • Miami Herald
    • 91 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    More than once during The Fast Runner (Atanarjuat), it's easy to forget you're watching a movie.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Like the best coming-of-age stories, I'm Not Scared (Io Non Ho Paura) is, in part, a work of horror.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The Dreamers argues that life must be lived, not dreamt. But it also remembers the confounding pleasures of dreaming with your eyes wide open.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Profoundly hopeful and optimistic film.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Impossible to resist.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    This delicate, transporting movie, which keeps dialogue to a minimum to tell its story primarily through images, is also a triumph of sheer cinematic craft that mirrors its characters' contemplative natures while extolling the virtues of lives simply led.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    This rich, emotionally complex movie finds Almodóvar venturing into trickier, more fascinating territory, even if his themes.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is such an intense, disturbing and exhilarating experience, even five more minutes might have felt like too much.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Control Room may not seem all that compelling 10 years down the road. But right now, at this very moment, it is essential, imperative viewing.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A soaring, exhilarating fantasy grounded in earthy emotion, Crouching Tiger more than lives up to the hype.
    • Miami Herald
    • 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."
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    It's a sign of just how much Coppola respects her characters that she doesn't make us privy to that final line: It is only meant for them to share. But like the rest of the ethereal Lost in Translation, you don't need to have it spelled out in order to feel it.
    • 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.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Offers a ride worth taking -- an excursion through a fantastical pop universe that is pure, enchanting magic. Try it; you'll like it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Deals with themes Eastwood has often explored before, but never so delicately or with as much sad wisdom: The way in which our past haunts our present, the lasting repercussions of violence and the cruel inexorability of fate.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A fiendishly subtle horror movie, a goosebump-inducing exercise in suspense that uses your own imagination to scare you silly.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    But this smart, genuinely creepy movie also feels <I>real</I>, which is why its horrors hit so hard. Fans of the scary stuff, run, don't walk.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    Won't appeal to everyone, of course, particularly those who blush easily. And parents who take children to see it deserve to have their heads examined. But for those who don't mind a little bile in their eggnog, it's the perfect antidote to all that prefab Christmas cheer.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    A unique bond still develops between the two outcasts, leading to an unexpected resolution that ends this subtle, deeply humane movie on an ambiguous, but unmistakably hopeful, note.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie's scientific content is so fascinating that it almost feels like a bonus that Kinsey himself is such an intriguing figure.
