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

    Putting the viewer into a men’s circle like no other, The Work is a remarkable piece of reportage.

    The aesthetic that Dominik has crafted is a pitch-perfect expression of Cave’s grappling with matters of time and space. It’s gorgeous and ghostly.
    • 91 Metascore

    It's an act of defiance that's also a sublime piece of cinema, and it ranks among the director's finest work.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Loneliness, alienation, the ache of nostalgia and the everyday absurdity of life infuse every encounter in the unconventional road trip.

    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Writer-director Michael Almereyda, whose "Hamlet" and "Cymbeline" boldly reimagined Shakespeare, takes a stylized visual approach in Experimenter, with bracing results.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Provocative and often fascinating, The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is an unsentimental look at the ways prisons shape life outside their walls, in places as disparate as Appalachia and Midtown Manhattan.

    A crucial, profound strength of Newtown is its refusal to rush toward “closure” as necessary, or even to suggest that it’s possible. There’s a striking lack of the bromides that usually abound in such contexts.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    The film’s bracing ground-level truths, by turns hopeful and despairing, challenge Beltway anxieties about the “porousness” of the border and shake up preconceived notions about Americans’ relationships with their southern neighbors.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    Each scene, beneath its surface calm, throbs with longing, dislocation and intricately woven layers of time.
    • 73 Metascore

    What tantalizes is the way the story moves between their private passion and their public shame, the way then and now become synchronous. Amalric navigates the shifts with a lapidary precision.

    Finlay unearths a fascinating biography filled with reversals, comebacks and false starts.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore

    Zeroing in on the art of rehearsal, Becoming Traviata is an exquisitely observed look at performance and the creative process.
    • 77 Metascore

    Clear-eyed and urgent.

    Voices in Wartime is a stirring testament to the search for meaning.
    • 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.

    Aferim! conjures a world in flux. From the ironic "Bravo!" of its title to its Chekhovian final moment after an episode of terrible brutality, Jude's film connects that world, unforgettably, to our own.

    Ahn’s erotically charged, quietly devastating drama suggests David might yet find a way to be true to himself, but it finds no easy answers for this good son.

    Beyond her tenacious and intimate reporting, director and cinematographer Polak has made a work of powerful images — heart-rending, elegiac, charged with hope.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    This exercise in beauty, derangement and memory can be contemplative or silly. Often it's both, in just the right proportions.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Sheri Linden
    With clinical dispassion and narrative elegance, Breillat has constructed what she calls "a thriller about denial."
