    Smith's utterly natural filmmaking there is impressive.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Intriguing and surprisingly witty.

    Handling both directing and cinematography duties, Core invests both with a clearly impassioned sense of place, period and perspective regarding this fanfare for common men.

    In a brilliant and precise reversal of Hollywood's current casting game of matching older male stars with younger female starlets, Roth takes hold of the mature end of a love affair with the ultra-handsome Becker and steers a course of vivid sexual and emotional power.

    Never obtains the full impact of its potentially powerful inner core.

    More ambitious than her 2002 debut, "Blue Car," Moncrieff's new film maintains her focus on women, expanding to include a range of ages, circumstances and psychologies. Picture's drama, however, is deliberately fractured into a quintet of stories that vary considerably in their overall impact.
    • 71 Metascore

    Perky and effortlessly smooth.

    Certainly not a piffle, nor an impressive departure into a new filmmaking realm, Allen's second film in a row about crooks ranks in the middle range of his work.

    The final days of a band of 1930s Christian rebels in the central Mexican wilderness are depicted with majestic stoicism in Matias Meyer’s elegant ode to independence.

    While the point of view of privileged, Anglo observers on African issues usually raises hackles, such is not the case with The Devil Came on Horseback, a tense account of former Marine Capt. Brian Steidle's witnessing of the genocide in Sudan's western province of Darfur.

    While the loyal male-teen aud core will not be disappointed with the spate of gags just for them, story contains solid date-movie material.

    An unusual example of what can be termed a "gay Christian" film, Cone's feature is among the best of a recent spate of dramas observing American Christian life.

    The film as a whole isn't quite as interesting, though it is noteworthy that action specialist Emmerich has clearly decided to change course here from anything he's previously made. Although this is primarily a writer's film, with John Orloff's screenplay (and dialogue) placed front and center, Anonymous surprises with how classical, staid and traditional Emmerich's mise-en-scene is, never straying from tried-and-true costumer standards.

    Stylish and substantial enough to prompt even a couch potato to action, Kelly Duane's Monumental: David Brower's Fight for Wild America delivers a stirring and visually dense account of the life and times of Brower.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Falling short of being truly memorable but sharper than the general slagheap of comedies.
    • 64 Metascore

    While it creaks along at times, director Csaba Kael's new film version of a Hungarian opera masterpiece, Ferenc Erkel's Bank Ban, is ultimately an invaluable entry in the opera-on-film library.

    Not surprisingly based on a comic book series by Brett Lewis and R.A. Jones (whom pic fails to credit), pic hurtles along at a pace designed by vet music vid and ad helmer Paul Hunter to engage short attention spans.

    Because it's bolstered by proud memories of Vietnam vets who turned against the war, Sir! No Sir! rings with an exultant, even elated tone.

    A thoroughly winning and unexpectedly observant lark about the antics of seven Latino skateboarding pals in South-Central Los Angeles.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Alternately glib, superficial and amusing, pic vainly attempts to absorb some degree of Serbian irony into a story that's unavoidably lessened by its privileged American vantage point.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Balances intelligent humor, slapstick, Blighty reserve and Yank spunk along with environmentalism.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    A history of verse is laid alongside that of warfare, and the ways in which they are braided together proves fascinating.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    The title is an apt one, suggesting that for all its staging and overt theatrics, independent (read: non-WWF) pro wrestling makes huge demands on the body and spirit.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Well-turned adult comedy.
    • 66 Metascore

    Though it never disguises its sympathies for Kasparov and contempt for a powerful corporation's machinations, documentary is finally a speculation on the limits of the human mind and how truth can never be fully known.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Full of bold dramatic strokes and complex character shadings.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Enough action, a tiny pinch of sex and some campy moments from Morgan Fairchild.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Closer to pics like “The Hit” and “Miller’s Crossing” than to McDonagh’s bristling, funny plays, this half-comic, half-serious account of two Irish hitmen who are sent to the titular Belgian burg to cool their heels after a job is moderately fair as a nutty character study, but overly far-fetched once the action kicks in.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    An unusually intelligent adventure film scaled for younger viewers, which never leaves adults behind.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Robert Koehler
    Patiently told and lovingly made.
