    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Functions swimmingly as both a bigscreen inflation of smallscreen icons and a fairly hilarious stand-alone.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    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.
    • 69 Metascore

    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    A vibrant, unpretentious small-town tale.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    An old-fashioned postmodern hoot.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Distinguishes itself from such last-fling-before-the-wedding comedies as "The Hangover" with the grittiness of its Texas locales and the smug intelligence of its unapologetically narcissistic protagonist.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Mai Iskander's stunning documentary-helming debut.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    The documentary's open-endedness offers something for everyone.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    From this polarizing lie, Techine fashions a brilliantly complex, intimate multi-strander, held together but somewhat skewed by the central perf of Emilie Dequenne ("Rosetta"), whose radiant physicality threatens to eclipse even Catherine Deneuve.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    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.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Ronnie Scheib
    Scotti's amateur camerawork proves strangely compelling.
