    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    At its best when it remains with the women, and Marshall draws marvelous performances from all.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A reminder of the offbeat comic sensibility and visceral charge that marked him (Sabu) as a director to watch.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    It's so beautiful and moving and simple that I'm willing to forgive Majidi his contrivances.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Kahn manages to turn his feast of flesh, navel-gazing talk and self-destructive jealousy into a thoughtful reflection on the subject.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Garcia's dialogue is wonderfully crafted, short, sharp and resonant, and her elegant direction is delicate and handsome.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A quirky little film with an offbeat trajectory that rattles through the bones of story with eyes open to the texture of experience and the dimensions of character.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A disturbing, and disturbingly funny, twist on adolescent love, and Shiota captures the emotional avalanche with understanding.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    It's remarkably bright, funny and sweet for a film that wades through so much sleaze, though it can't escape all of the weirdness it worms through.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A spirited, screwball crime-thriller with a sly heart.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    It's a gloriously baroque vision and Leconte believes in his sequin and sawdust fantasy with such unabashed enthusiasm that he makes it work even through its most absurd moments.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Oddly fresh and naively chipper.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    The faces of its inarticulate characters tell the story, and Majidi has put some amazing faces on the screen.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Kassovitz keeps the film zipping along with solid pacing and just enough action to clear the credibility gaps as long as the film is rolling.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    This is an unmistakably Asian variant on the action movie, a sleek, slick, entertaining espionage thriller in the John Woo mold.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    There's a real joy to this film, a love of the music and an appreciation of the band's eccentric humor.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    It's a romantic fantasy of the gangster brotherhood and their doomed lives, executed with Takeshi's unique mix of stoic ruthlessness and giddy energy.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A highly entertaining film that still packs much of the punch and the quirkiness of Willeford's novel.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Outside national borders, this naive vantage point is an entry into a country's history and culture, explaining without seeming patronizing.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A welcome return to the courtship, cuddling and sweet nothings of yesteryear.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    I guess there's something grizzled old codgers like Clint can teach those young hotshots after all.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Murders aside, Mac and Pat are the most fun-loving Shakespearean couple to hit the screen, and Morrissette's answer to Lady Macbeth's damned spot is brilliant.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    With the story's vivid and passionate women and the power of emotional healing (not to mention the intense eroticism of his hothouse romance), gives Sex and Lucia a dynamic, vigorous life.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Has the modesty of a savvy, smart drive-in movie with Hollywood studio polish and a movie buff's loving care.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A summer movie that knows it's a summer movie. You don't go to this film for the story, but for the scenery: Bikini-clad girls riding waves, surf photography as beautiful as it is breathtaking, sun, surf, sand, even a little PG-13 romance.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Much of the film is oddly ambiguous, as if Tran used it to explore conflicts of tradition and modernity and never came up with any answers.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Oliviera's mastery is a joy to experience and his bittersweet comic touch adds a loving absurdity to what could have turned maudlin or morose.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    The result is like a "Waiting for Godot" for the video-game generation.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    A slick, smart-alecky rat-a-tat crime comedy.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    It's hard to call it thrilling -- these aren't characters you actually care about and De Palma isn't as concerned with building tension as playing visual games -- but it sure sparkles.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Sean Axmaker
    Spottiswoode and Schwarzenegger deliver a clever and colorful conspiratorial thriller with high-energy action scenes, car crashes a go-go, spectacular technology and big explosions, packaged with ferocious glee and spoofing humor. Who could ask for more from Ah-nold?
