    A radiant perf by Annie Parisse and a virtuoso turn by Eli Wallach are insufficient to lift this male intergenerational angst-fest out of the ghetto.

    The bros are built, and "Hand," with its gorgeous shots of mist-shrouded woods and sun-burnished hay, plus a brief but rapturous foray into gay sex, may attract queer auds.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Kalmbach’s laid-back approach proves more likable than revelatory.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Simultaneously insightful and idiotic.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Amiable but uneven.

    A startling wake-up call about appalling conditions prevailing in American schools, The War on Kids contradicts popular wisdom.

    It is the presence of Duncan as a Mike Tyson-esque, malaprop-spouting ex-champion that, at least momentarily, lifts the pic out of its mediocrity.

    Israeli helmer Dror Sahavi's well-meaning but simplistic terrorist melodrama, gingerly counterbalancing religious fanatics on either side of the Israeli-Palestinian divide, utilizes a lyrical "Romeo and Juliet"-type encounter between a reluctant suicide bomber and a Jewish escapee from Orthodox closed-mindedness to plead mutual tolerance.

    Dancing Across Borders, Anne Bass' uneven docu debut, traces the fortunes of Cambodian ballet dancer Sokvannara "Sy" Sar from the time Bass first discovered him performing traditional temple dances at Angkor Wat to his conquests on the world stage.

    Happily, "Upwards" picks up immeasurably when three legit luminaries (Andrea Martin, Julie White, Peter Friedman) enter the picture as the couple's parents.

    Beginning promisingly enough, "Handsome" soon turns monotonously angst-ridden, with all humor and personality falling by the wayside.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    This mildly amusing, resolutely inoffensive outing lacks serious sexual tension -- which might just make it a viable compromise date pick in limited release.

    Despite its infotainment look, Burzynski ultimately proves convincing.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Even if Matteo Garrone's "Gomorrah" hadn't dramatically raised the bar for mafioso movies, The Sicilian Girl would have repped a mediocre entry in the Cosa Nostra canon and a waste of an extraordinary true story.

    Unfortunately, picture's concept doesn't stretch to 74 minutes.

    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    This low-budget curio feels remarkably authentic but lacks a core story structure.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Directed by the pseudonymous Deagol Brothers, the film invests in spacey horror tropes one moment, plunges into absurdist adolescent angst the next and begs questions every step of the way, but just about holds together with its strong compositional sense, killer atmospheric lighting and wall-to-wall music track.

    David H. Hickey's Lone Star comedy never really develops, stalling this culture-clash clambake at the merely likable stage.
    • 52 Metascore

    Bubbles along with a jaunty but unoriginal blend of the sweet, tart, cute and weepy.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Its straight-ahead rape, humiliation and ingenious revenge competently executed but not aestheticized, the essential grunginess never overly slicked up.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Teper buries his material in gimcrack mod trappings that trivialize rather than celebrate Sassoon's accomplishments.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Though the actors don't flesh out or particularly fit their roles, they seem perfectly at ease with them and with each other.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Nothing here -- technologically, linguistically or visually -- would not be more at home decades ago, when director Stephen Herek helmed "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and "The Mighty Ducks."

    Loveless exerts a low-energy, dread-tinged fascination that intrigues rather than wows.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Despite the fine thesping seen in this innocuous piece of fluff, the whole amounts to less than the sum of its parts.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    This spectacular orchestration of visual elements seems wasted on a threadbare, inanely repetitive plotline.

    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Chalk suffers overall from a lack of subtlety, as problems abruptly get thrust into the foreground with little buildup or internal consistency.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Mia and the Migoo boasts a handsome, folkloric look that is often undermined by a ham-handed script.

    The major draw of Blank City lies in its generous glimpses of rare, virtually lost Super-8 and 16mm films.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Ronnie Scheib
    Brit helmer Malcolm Mowbray's film assumes the constrictions of a stagebound farce, taking place on a single set in real time, and swept along in magisterially broad strokes by Jeffrey Tambor's playfully theatrical perf.
