    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Upbeat Urbanworld documentary prizewinner, full of strong personalities and crisply edited court action.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Proves as entertaining as the earlier "The War Room," which also featured Carville, but is more somber.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A sure-fire audience-pleaser, Scott (son of Garry) Marshall's winning comedy bow could have been titled "My Big Fat Jewish Bar Mitzvah."
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    The picture's deepest fascination lies in the soldiers' complicated reactions to the war, perceived simultaneously as funny, horrific, stirring and traumatic.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Enjoyable, daffily improbable escapist romp.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Briskly paced humor and/or pathos flow organically from situation and characters.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Basically conservative yet titillatingly "eccentric" British laffer could succeed in the "Full Monty" import slot.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    PBS-bound docu constitutes a revealing look at a poorly understood chapter in American history.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A rogues gallery of flamboyant gangsters paint an anecdote-rich portrait of the drug trade, while a steady stream of cops, coroners and crime reporters furnish social commentary.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Thoughtful, incisive, controversial.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Effortlessly interlinking the stories through the jaunty perambulations of a fresh-faced waitress from a local cafe, Thomson's crowd-pleaser makes up in refined schmaltz what it lacks in innovation or profundity.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    With equal measures of showmanship, patriotism and irony, hundreds vie at NYC's Pussycat Lounge for the East Coast Division of the first-ever nationwide air guitar championship for the right to eventually represent the U.S. at the world championship.

    At several points, Chang is the only thing standing between his event and total chaos, as frustrated ticket-holders rush the gates.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    In dangerous and downright cruddy conditions, the personable Palestinians share stories, lodgings and camaraderie with the young Israeli filmmaker, whose handheld camera follows them everywhere.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Pitch-perfect dialogue, quietly dynamic helming and small-scale action on a widescreen canvas make for a very appealing film.
    • 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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Celebratory, family-friendly fable.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Whenever Sutherland comes on scene, any inadequacies in the film's depiction of the well-to-do become irrelevant.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Though fans might miss Perry's genre-exploding daring, the excellent cast injects enough pathos and zing to keep picture percolating.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Knockout performances by John Cusack and child actor Bobby Coleman help legitimize a whimsical but sententiously moralizing script.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Functions swimmingly as both a bigscreen inflation of smallscreen icons and a fairly hilarious stand-alone.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Beastie Boy Adam Yauch proves he can make a comprehensive, state-of-the-art docu of interest to basketball aficionados.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Stephen Dorff's powerhouse perf as an ordinary Joe trapped behind bars with warring ethnic psychopaths propels Felon well ahead of its expose/exploitation brethren while still avoiding the pious learning curves of Frank Darabont's prestige prison dramas.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Ultimately, picture's fascination lies with the personalities and strategies of the candidates themselves.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Piles the pathos high as if to see how many hard-luck cliches its pugilist hero can fend off without succumbing to schmaltz. Given John Leguizamo's knockout perf, sentimentality never dares raise its head, and the improbably stacked deck from which his character is dealt gives the pic's would-be "neo-realist" premise a peculiar edge.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A vibrant, unpretentious small-town tale.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    An old-fashioned postmodern hoot.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A magnificent performance by Sarah Polley illuminates every frame of this relatively upbeat melodrama.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    By the film's underwater finale, director Matteo Garrone has bestowed a tragic stature on the pint-size Othello who loves "not wisely but too well."
