    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."

    Alternating between New York clubs by night and the colorful streets and countryside of Santa Domingo by day, pic captures the spirit of the music and the nation that gave birth to it.

    Laurien van den Broeck's masterful unblinking performance transcends the uneasy all-English dialogue.

    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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    So strong are the perceived parallels between the Peruvian situation described in State of Fear and the sociopolitical dynamics of the current U.S. war on terror that filmmakers have trouble, in post-screening Q&As, returning the discussion to the historical subject at hand.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Fascinating glimpse into wholly different body of laws, engrossingly evolving script and standout performances.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Pic's quiet lucidity and matter-of-fact procedurals pack a cumulative emotional punch.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Tyro helmer Sara Lamm satisfyingly stitches together the family soap opera into a comfortable crazy quilt without sacrificing its unique, oddly topical edge.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A rousing, hilarious Bacchanal of family togetherness, Roger Paradiso's brilliantly cinematic adaptation of the second-longest running play in Off-Broadway history might be the best of the recent rash of wedding pics.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Arguably stronger conceptually than visually, surreal mix of the unexpected and the banal is definitely not to everybody's taste. But the music is inarguably sublime.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Pays fitting tribute to Wetlands' unique rebirth of '60s idealism within a '90s urban setting.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    The women's personalities and strengths command attention, their stories neatly dovetailing with the study's hypotheses. But when the film suddenly, almost subversively, shifts gears, and the questioner becomes the questioned, the pic's dynamic changes radically.

    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    What emerges from Walter's docu is not a sense of failure, but a recognition that the play's the thing, enriched by every flawed performance, perfection almost irrelevant to its cry of anguish.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Though picture is downbeat and defiantly low-budget, its laid-back absurdist tone and no-nonsense pacing make for an audio-visual delight.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Spinning a wry, tall-tale version of his autobiography, the septuagenarian audaciously plays himself at every age and every stage of his improbably picaresque adventures.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Crams a wealth of material into 90 minutes without losing clarity or momentum.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Bristling with wry wit and peopled with a rogue's gallery of disaffected losers.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Mai Iskander's stunning documentary-helming debut.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    For some, the documentary will represent the endorsement of a self-hater spouting traitorous ideas; for others, it celebrates the courage of a reviled, truth-telling martyr to the cause of academic freedom.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Scotti's amateur camerawork proves strangely compelling.
    • tbd Metascore

    At a leisurely 172 minutes, the pic takes on the desultory rhythms of rural stagnation, its rigorous compositions imparting aesthetic weight and meditative scope to everything in its purview.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Gleefully piles on everything anyone could want in a docu on the fabulous Kuchar brothers, whose deliriously campy zero-budget mellers -- with titles like "Hold Me While I'm Naked" or "Sins of the Fleshapoids" -- enlivened many otherwise somber evenings of '60s underground cinema.
