    • 88 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    There's nothing messy or unkempt about the beautifully, quietly heartbreaking story of unconditional love and emotional sacrifice.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It makes for one of the best and most haunting of the recent Asian horror films.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It becomes a dreamy study in stillness broken by suicide fantasies, flashbacks, and the hired killers, but even the violence has a meditative even melancholy quality to it, as if it's all been processed through the eyes of its Zen hero.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Hot Fuzz is something all too rare in movie comedies: a story rather than a string of disjointed skits, with hearty characters behind its caricatures.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It's messy and unsettled, but Bellocchio's distaste for the cynicism and mendacity is potent and sincere.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    A rousing celebration of a genuine people's hero and a timely reminder that a free press is the greatest weapon in the arsenal of democracy and freedom.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    The impressive marriage of CGI backgrounds and traditional hand-drawn characters gives Oshii more tools to sculpt his vision in color and light.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    The three stars communicate the fears and dreams and frustrations of teenage girls with subtlety, sensitivity and dignity.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Michell captures the awkwardness of real-world behavior with gentle, unforced humor.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    A sports empowerment fantasy of the best kind.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It's smart, instructive political cinema that tackles complex issues of the globalization with practical examples and vivid images and presents its effects in immediate human terms.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Doyle's handheld camerawork is intimate and curious and his hazy colors radiate off the screen.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Think of this corrective to Kipling as "The Longest Yard" meets "The Seven Samurai" with cricket bats, choreographed dance numbers, romantic triangles and a rousing call to solidarity.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It's filled to overflowing with mischievous gags for kids and adults alike, tickling the periphery of the story and crammed into every frame with playful abandon. It gives potty humor a good name.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Danny Aiello is right at home as owner Louis, a paternal Italian father to all but his own son, reigning over the throng from his corner table like a benevolent lord and maybe underworld gangster.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Gunnarsson masterfully weaves these strands into a bold, multilayered tapestry surrounding a powerful story.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It could be more involving, but it's funny enough that you won't care.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Mühe's performance is brilliant, communicating more turmoil and pain with the droop of a lip and a flicker of the eye across an otherwise intently passive face than all the emotional storms of the cast.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Captures the overwhelming and uncontrollable emotional assault of loving and living through captured moments and sensuous images.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It's the warmest, most generous portrait of American hospitality you've seen from a European movie in some time.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Despite the cat-and-mouse games between cop and criminal, this is less a battle of wills than one man's battle for his own soul. Nolan bravely treads where few American films dare to delve -- into the world of ambivalence and ambiguity -- and emerges with a compelling portrait.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    One of the most hilarious and engaging films from producer Judd Apatow's often inconsistent comedy factory, thanks to inspired dialogue, dynamite chemistry between Rogen and Franco and perfectly pitched stoner gags (undoubtedly the result of copious research).
    • 51 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    An honorable and often enticing piece of personal filmmaking.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    While Margot's casual cruelty and the scenes of squirmy discomfort are sometimes painful to watch, the rendering of this disastrous family reunion is seriously, savagely droll.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    An inspirational documentary that treats thinkers (so often the villains of our entertainments) as heroes.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Hammer filmed on location with local nonactors. Their lack of polish is evident -- Smith's inexpressiveness, though part of his character, is simply blank at times -- but their conviction can be just as powerful.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    It's not really scary, but it reaches a level of insanity so unhinged and dispassionately wretched that it defies description. Inspired, but not for all tastes.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    The social commentary isn't subtle, but Romero delivers the goods so effectively that many won't even notice.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Deliciously dark tale of insidious seduction.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 83 Sean Axmaker
    Fumbling characters find that survival is not a matter of economics alone, it's also a matter of hope.
