    Aatsinki is a work of cinéma vérité of the highest order: vivid, immersive and unflinching.

    Moodysson captures that moment — charged, goofy and transcendent — when personal style and wide-ranging outrage fuse in an all-encompassing manifesto.

    An exhilarating fish story in the perfectly cast comic adventure.

    Zeroing in on the art of rehearsal, Becoming Traviata is an exquisitely observed look at performance and the creative process.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    An exhilarating vérité work by first-timer Manuel von Stürler, the documentary follows this seasonal migration, or transhumance, with a sense of quiet awe and intimacy, capturing the feel of cold rain, deep snow and the comforting heat of a campfire.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Filmmakers Martha Shane and Lana Wilson, whose profiles in courage are sympathetic but not adulatory, have crafted an absorbing, thoughtful report.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    A documentary that doesn't force-feed its message of hope but genuinely earns it.
    • 80 Metascore

    With clinical dispassion and narrative elegance, Breillat has constructed what she calls "a thriller about denial."
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Less giddy and more cohesive than the original, the film doesn't waste time, plunging almost directly into a spectacular heist.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    At once a powerful psychological thriller and a haunting allegory, The Return marks an auspicious feature debut for helmer Andrey Zvyagintsev.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Layering soundtrack and visuals in an intricate collage of rich emotional texture, he (Jonathan Caouette) displays an exhilarating talent.
    • 65 Metascore

    Voices in Wartime is a stirring testament to the search for meaning.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    The word "community" has become a cliche, but this party, both backstage and before the crowd, illustrates a specific sense of cultural community and the singular bliss of standing on a city street in late-summer rain for a once-in-a-lifetime concert.

    Deep Sea 3D, along with the recent Imax films "Coral Reef Adventure" and "Volcanoes of the Deep Sea," is a glorious example of educational entertainment at its best.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    A work of terrific imagination, visceral punch and gothic beauty.
    • 77 Metascore

    Uplifting without a drop of sap, the tale of a boy's obsession with a glittering swimming pool and how it changes four lives offers numerous pleasures and one of the most satisfying and resonant conclusions to be seen in recent cinema.

    Anderson has created a world as stylized and inventive as anything he's done... "Fox" is a visual delight.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    A handsome and achingly sad period piece, a finely observed portrait of cast-aside dreams. The drama is quieter and more chaste than the similarly themed "Camille Claudel," but no less haunting.
    • 77 Metascore

    What sets Code Black apart is that the filmmaker is himself a physician. His extraordinary access to life-and-death moments and his illuminating perspective on the medical system make for a powerful viewing experience.

    With its long takes and deliberate pacing, Beyond the Hills is demanding but always engrossing, even during its repetitive middle section.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    Moving somewhat obviously toward denouement, the film hits a false note or two. But mainly it's exhilarating in its refusal to make smooth what's messy, inchoate and tenaciously alive.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    Francisca Gavilán's lead performance burns with a dark radiance that's anything but self-congratulatory.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    The film's dark beauty and the quiet intensity of the performances have a discomforting pull.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    In inverse proportion to typically long-winded, inscrutable terms of service, the film is concise, direct and thoroughly engaging.
    • 44 Metascore

    With its focus on intimate detail, Off Label is not a conventional "issue film" reaching for conclusions. Palmieri and Mosher have taken on a huge and urgent topic, and their work's impact rests on their refusal to tell viewers how to feel.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    At the film's heart is a fitful conversation that unfolds like a string of koans, epigrams, jokes and silences.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    The film charts no new territory but is terrifically cast and, like its source novel, long on atmosphere.
    • 56 Metascore

    It is Weigert's performance that gives the film its mystery and charge. Playing seriously with identity, she draws the viewer ever closer. The way she never reveals everything is electrifying.

    Mam's camera work is exquisite in its immediacy and agility. One of the most striking aspects of her film is the intimacy it achieves without feeling intrusive or turning her subjects into fodder for a message.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    It's a story of contained chaos, quietly observed — one that catches fire more in retrospect than in the viewing.
