    Pic's quiet lucidity and matter-of-fact procedurals pack a cumulative emotional punch.

    Maintaining a bemused, sometimes comic distance, Betbeder traces how happenstance crystallizes into biography as his characters traverse the titular seasons.

    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    PBS-bound docu constitutes a revealing look at a poorly understood chapter in American history.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    With an eclectic mix of strong-minded thesps all pulling in slightly different directions, this shape-shifting genre hybrid successfully commingles 12-step therapy, romantic comedy and hit-man thriller.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Works better as a series of well-conceived, impeccably timed and executed physical gags, with light dustings of pathos, than as the story of a woman sacrificing her artistic identity on the altar of motherhood.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Enjoyable, daffily improbable escapist romp.

    "Mundo" saves the full effect for dramatically lit performances at stopovers along the road, climaxing at the jam-packed Luna Park arena in Buenos Aires.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Atmospheric picture positively vibrates with authenticity, and Janssen's intense, febrile performance earned a special jury prize at the Hamptons fest.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Altina makes for loose, exasperating but oddly endearing viewing.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Crams a wealth of material into 90 minutes without losing clarity or momentum.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Functions swimmingly as both a bigscreen inflation of smallscreen icons and a fairly hilarious stand-alone.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Initially registers as meandering and disjointed enough to qualify as mumblecore. But remarkably, the film gradually, effectively coheres, building to a climax at once unexpected yet integral to what has transpired before.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Fascinating case study of the moral quagmire of globalism.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Suffused with buoyant, sunlit sensuality, like its free-flying heroine, Elza confounds logic while seducing the senses.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    The horrific events in Mexico are proving fertile ground for black comedy, and though Saving Private Perez is certainly not the blackest, it may well be the funniest.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Hentoff presides over a film rich in the sounds and occasional sights of legendary cultural figures, from Lenny Bruce and Malcolm X to Bob Dylan and Coleman Hawkins.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    With its convincingly antique-looking artifacts and hilarious “re-creations,” the March 1 release should please audiences searching for an intelligent, satiric spin on historical hindsight.
    • 65 Metascore

    Nominally structured around the Intel Science Talent Search, Whiz Kids traces a dual process: the empowerment of economically challenged students who otherwise might not realize their potential, and the empowerment of the nation through the problem-solving efforts of its best and brightest.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Amid the flood of documentaries about the Arab Spring in general and the Egyptian Revolution in particular, Uprising takes a clear, cohesive approach to the spontaneous events at its center.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Mai Iskander's stunning documentary-helming debut.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Proves as entertaining as the earlier "The War Room," which also featured Carville, but is more somber.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Picture offers unique glimpses into the hearts and minds of those who have turned reasons for hatred into a crusade for tolerance, braving the scorn of enemies and compatriots alike.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Winning, consistently funny comedy, with lively script by veteran Colombian producer/scribe Dago Garcia ("Maximum Penalty"), The Car is driven by unusually sharp helming from newcomer Luis Orjuela, and a dynamite ensemble cast.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Fascinating study of free enterprise in free fall. While it may disappoint thrill-seekers, "Girlfriend" should still delight Soderbergh fans and niche auds.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Pitch-perfect central perf (by scribe and co-producer Damian Lahey), total lack of dramatic artifice and surreally situational humor make for a minor-key vignette of unmistakable, if unstable, authenticity.

    Deftly avoiding both the haphazardness of mumblecore and the fakery of studio romantic comedies, Khoury deploys a light directorial touch marked by assured thesping and a genuine appreciation for neurotic angst.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A worshipful tribute to the life and work of Jane Goodall.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Bristling with wry wit and peopled with a rogue's gallery of disaffected losers.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Basically conservative yet titillatingly "eccentric" British laffer could succeed in the "Full Monty" import slot.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Helmer George Butler correctly gauges his film's strengths, with the search for life in the universe becoming a heartfelt tribute to a couple of robots.
