    This unblinking look at America's Red State Crystal Meth Belt is an instant Southern Gothic classic.

    Duvall, an American Lear not going gently into that good night, reminds us that it will be a sad day indeed for movie fans when it's about time for him to Get Low.

    The performances, direction and writing of one of the best pictures of 2010 make this Social Network every bit as addictive, and a little chilling as well.

    Artful, epic, operatic even, this thriller set in the world of ballet challenges the viewer with its intelligence and depth and wit.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Roger Moore
    Engrossing and moving story of a alternately warm and combative relationship.

    J.J. Abrams, with Steven Spielberg producing, has made one of those jaw-dropping out-of-body summer entertainments that kids old enough to swear and see PG-13 films will remember on into adulthood.

    • 100 Roger Moore
    The Guard soars along on a script, like those by the other McDonagh (Martin wrote and directed "In Bruges" and the Oscar winning short "Six Shooter," both starring Gleeson) built out of verbal flourishes and Irish curses.

    McQueen and his stellar cast take us on a difficult journey, an odyssey that will make you want to avert your eyes. It is to their great credit that we don’t.

    56 Up feels like the most hopeful film of them all - amusing, entertaining, and touching.
    • 86 Metascore

    And Dern, a great character actor who made his mark opposite everyone from Redford and John Wayne to Jane Fonda, embraces the roll of a lifetime.

    Dallas Buyers Club is one of the best pictures of the year.

    Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is an amazing achievement in telling an unremarkably remarkable life story.

    This performance reminds us that Bridges is that rare actor who has never had to make that apology. Crazy Heart lets him be every bit as grand as we’d hope him to be.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Haneke tells this tale a bit too patiently for my taste. But the metaphors are unmistakable, as is the power of the film’s message.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    An exquisite character study in grief.
    • 76 Metascore

    A stop any literary-minded movie-goer will want to make.

    It's an unblinking look into the lives of soldiers doing the most thankless job of all.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Strip away the French and Arabic subtitles, the French-prison setting and the Muslim-messianic title, and A Prophet, opening Friday at The Enzian, would still be the grittiest prison thriller in years.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    A chilling detective tale, a horrific sexual abuse drama and an overlong, emotional, tie-up-every-loose-end melodrama that is sure to be half an hour shorter when Hollywood remakes it without the Swedish dialogue and probably without the cool Swedish edge.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    It is Carrey, turning his patented rubber-faced, rubber-voiced shtick loose on a role with heart, substance and entertainment value, who makes this romantic farce a movie too good to sit on any studio's shelf.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    That humor is a the delicious underpinning to whatever melodrama happens as these five connect and clash. And that humor is what reassures us, even at its darkest moments, that no matter how things work out for the adults, these kids are going to be all right.
    • 71 Metascore

    Cassel's performance...the best reason to see this, one of the best French (In French with English subtitles) crime thrillers of the new millennium.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    There are people, powerful people, who don't want old cases dug up. It's a tribute to the story's construction that the mystery only deepens, the more Benjamin digs.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    I Am Love is a cinematic orgy, a sensual Italian feast of food, sex, guilt and grief. An intimate, quiet and even slow movie, its subtle shadings veil turbulent emotions.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Dazzling, scary and sentimental.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Yes, it's pretty much a must to have seen the first film. Where Dragon Tattoo felt like fall, Played with Fire was shot in the Swedish summer, which suits the faster pace, ramped up violence and fresh collection of supporting players -- cops, a kickboxer, and a couple of borderline Bond villains.
    • 69 Metascore

    Of all the gonzo-goofy comic book adaptations that embrace video gaming sensibilities, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is the gonzo-goofiest.
    • 74 Metascore

    It's the best heist picture since "Heat."

    Reeves has Americanized a very good foreign film without defanging it.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    The magic in the film is in the actors. Only somebody who has stripped himself emotionally bare for the camera could achieve the level of performance that Goldwyn gets from every single SAG member on this set.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    The first third is brisk and witty, the middle third gloomy and the finale of Part 1 not so much a cliffhanger as a grim, inspiring tease, a masterly build-up to put "I can't wait for part 2" on every Muggles' lips.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    That message, this script and these actors make Rabbit Hole one of the best films of 2010.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    A most deserving Oscar winner and a film that could provoke discussion anywhere it is shown, anywhere people of any age are being bullied.

    • 88 Roger Moore
    Saoirse Ronan shines in the title role, a wily, physically-fit and lethal girl.
    • 53 Metascore

    The best faith-based film ever made, an uplifting, entertaining and wonderfully-acted account of surfer Bethany Hamilton's life before and after a shark bit her arm off in the waters off her favorite Hawaiian beach.

    Almost every shot is a postcard-perfect African vista, and every animal shown in majestic close-up.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Chemistry is king. It's one reason the rom-com has long seemed like the toughest code for Hollywood to crack. But never underestimate the power of snappy, rapid-fire banter, the paving stones of the Hollywood road to romance.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Davis and Spencer give faces and fully-fleshed out lives to women who must have been more than what they did for a living as The Help.

    • 88 Roger Moore
    Moneyball is a thinking person's baseball movie, and a baseball fan's thinking movie.
    • 65 Metascore

    Thanks to Banderas and his Corinthian leather purr and writers who know how to use it, "Puss" is the best animated film of 2011.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    It isn't a great film. But it is a smart and high-minded one, wonderfully cast, with understated direction. Clooney is good enough in the lead to stir talk of a political future.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Audacious, violent and disquieting, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a summer sequel that's better than it has any right to be.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    With Win Win, McCarthy has found his emotional sweet spot, a sweet and complex story to set it in and the perfect title for it.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    It's a bleak yet optimistic film, and Ferrell perfectly underplays his Carver anti-hero and delivers a rich, layered and subtle performance. And a funny one.

    If you're looking for a filmmaker to document, for all of humanity, "one of the greatest discoveries in the history of human culture," the great Werner Herzog is your guy.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Here's a documentary so slick, novel, touching and outrageous that your first thought might be "This has to be fake."
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    The rawboned Hawkes manages both charm and menace in the same look, and Dancy gives his character a testy, fearful edge that doesn't make him scary, but rather someone we fear for.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    That makes Sarah's Key that rare Holocaust tale that punches through the cobwebs of history and its dry, inhuman statistics, and brings that terrible past to life.

    The funniest kids’ cartoon of the summer.
    • 96 Metascore

    Bullock and Clooney make their peril our peril in this absolutely gorgeous, moving and sometimes exultant reminder that the real terrors of space are scary enough, without invented bug-eyed monsters thrown in.

    The sweet, the comic and the tragic blend together most agreeably in the winsome French romance The Hedgehog.
    • 83 Metascore

    The performances and Greengrass’s way with action immerse us and make Captain Phillips a tight, taut,edge of your seat thriller even if you remember the ending.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    This solo ordeal won’t be to every taste, but All Is Lost is a grand vehicle for the actor and for that viewer ready to consider his or her own mortality, the problems, conflicts, strengths and shortcomings you’re sure you leave behind when you just sail away.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    A fine and fun film tribute to the milieu, the men, women and machines in a sport that was never deadlier or more glamorous than its Disco Decade incarnation.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    It was never going to be “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” Reserve that honor for the film that inspired it. But Saving Mr. Banks is still one of the best pictures of the year.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Using archival footage, inventive animated recreations of incidents and chilling aerial smart-bomb views of air strikes as they happen, Moreh creates a simple yet elegantly damning film.
    • 60 Metascore

    The dialogue is hard-bitten and Mamet-sharp.

    Michael B. Jordan (“Red Tails”) is never less than riveting as Oscar, and he has to be.

    Young Onata Aprile makes Maisie a passive wonder, a sweetly poker-faced, nonjudgmental and hopeful child, even as she’s being ditched at bars, forgotten at school or passed back and forth like a prize, or a bad penny.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    The disco decadence, the seedy era before Times Square became a theme park, the lowered expectations of an endless recession, everything that was then and is now makes up American Hustle. And that’s what makes this the best movie of this holiday season.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Doueiri has brilliantly and simply put a compassionate human face on a part of the world where ethnicity still trumps education, class and achievement, where even the successful face, at best, second-class citizenship in their own country.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    It’s a pretty conventional “Lifetime Original Movie” sort of story. But co-writer/director Thomas Vinterberg (“Dear Wendy”) makes it work by building a sense of frustrating unease into it all.

    To fans who know the tunes by heart, hearing their history is never less than thrilling. And if you’ve heard that line about “Swampers” and never new who they were, you should. They have been known to pick a song or two.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Roger Moore
    Artistically, Get on Up rivals “Walk the Line,” with a lead performance on a par with the career-making turns of Angela Bassett (“What’s Love Got to Do With It?”) and Jamie Foxx (“Ray”). With this wonder of the summer, Boseman and Taylor deliver a piece of American cultural history every bit as important as the Jackie Robinson story, a story told with heart, humor, funk and soul.

    We’re taken back to a naive era, when the boundaries of “smut” were narrower, when even the images of an unlikely “adult” star (she never did sex films or “real” porn) seem now like good, clean fun.

    We should all be so lucky as to live in a world designed, peopled and manipulated by Wes Anderson. His latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is a dark, daft and deft triumph of design details.

    A leg up on the first “Trip,” an altogether more delightful vacation with two blokes who might wear us and each other out along the way. But then, that’s half the fun.

    A true indie film roller-coaster ride, from moon-eyed romance to aching heartbreak, cerebral puzzle to incredibly moving, emotional resolution to that puzzle. In a season of the year where sci-fi is dumbed down and then dumbed some more for mass consumption, here’s a piece of speculative fiction that will stick with you long after the last Transformer’s battery has died.

    Calvary is a compact and biting tale of a righteous man being tested by his faith, his peers and his predicament.

    Wonderland is equal parts Lewis Carroll and Grace Slick. It’s inspired by Carroll’s "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass," but also, apparently, by Slick’s psychedelic ‘60s anthem, “White Rabbit.” It’s a trip, man.

    A deadpan, darkly funny Korean murder mystery.

    Crass, gross and juvenile in all the best (and worst) ways, Diary is aimed squarely at a tween "don't touch the cheese" demographic. And if you don't get it, maybe you're just too old for a good booger joke.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Roger Moore
    Baumbach overreaches, making this character a selfish, off-putting cultural (LA) and generational scold. But Stiller, in his most “real” performance in ages, finds the function in this catalog of dysfunctions, the humanity in this humanity-hating crank.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Roger Moore
    It is a well-acted and vivid re-creation of a dark, downbeat era when "girls don't play electric guitar," and you had to be someone pretty tough and pretty special to try it.

    The combination of a flexible, funny cast, an amusing situation and a style of movie-making that embraces every happy, nasty accident make this if not the funniest, then certainly the most uncomfortable comedy of the summer.
