    For Westerners, Lemelson offers an eye-opening look behind Bali's profile as a tourist Shangri-la. The documentary's ultimate value, though, may be in local education.

    Adapting the novel by Zhivko Chingo, director Trajkov and his co-scripter, Vladimir Blazevski, have created a searing memory piece. Suki Medencevic's widescreen cinematography illuminates a shadow realm halfway between heaven and hell.

    A shiver of cosmic comedy runs through the film's tragic turns.

    The decidedly irreverent nature of much of the proceedings will be a turnoff to some viewers, a tonic to others.

    The feature spikes its lonesome mood with shots of dry humor, animated sequences and flashbacks — at times overplaying its hand, even as Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff wordlessly convey all that needs to be said.

    Fine performances and bristling language compel in this overlong, often off-putting but well-observed New York story.

    It's an adrenaline rush of a film.

    Ultimately Fear X feels more like an intellectual exercise than a convincing drama.

    Its restraint is its strength. The focus on a woman's passionate hard work without need of marital-status back story is refreshing.

    White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.

    Bahrani sometimes pushes too hard as he reaches for big drama. But when the story works, it has a dark power that draws shrewdly upon his two leads' screen charisma.

    Well-told and charming, debuting writer-helmer Georgia Lee's comedy-drama Red Doors is big on heart but never sappy. Without overdoing the quirk factor or the melodrama, Lee shows a sure feel for family dynamics, and her light touch brings out the best in the ensemble's lovely, understated performances.

    Despite effective moments, VanAlkemade's film is too diffuse. He gives us snippets of the group's spirited performances, but their effect on audiences remains unclear.

    It's the loosely connected encounters of the early sequences that are remarkable in their poignancy and humor.

    In Ashok's reunion with the love of his life (Mary Steenburgen) — the chance to see her after many years is the true reason for his trip — the film taps into a tender wistfulness, Steenburgen making her character's every glance and hesitation resonate with emotion.

    None of it is quite satisfying, especially when old-age makeup takes center stage. But striking moments develop along the way, jolts of weird joy and melancholy as menace gathers under the Mediterranean sun.

    Those not in the smackdown frame of mind will find an overabundance of head-butts, body slams and pounding aural effects -- this is a definite contender for loudest film of the year -- but also will discover instances of innovative, spectacular stuntwork and, though the comic interplay often falls flat, a story with heart.

    Cunningham's 1990 novel makes an assured, if not entirely satisfying, transition to the big screen in this terrifically acted exploration of the bonds that transcend traditional notions of family.

    For more than half the film's running time, it's an engaging one. Centering on the boys' hardscrabble formative years, first-time director Breno Silveira delivers an assured first hour before losing grasp of his material.

    It's a plot that never takes hold, a mystery devoid of suspense... But the actors' unforced chemistry defies the artifice.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The low gore quotient and emphasis on young love might disappoint genre purists, but for those open to the idea of a gently goofy mash-up, the film is strong on atmosphere and offers likably low-key, if somewhat bland, charms.

    Cameron Crowe's feature documentary is among his most effective and deeply felt work.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Doesn't depart from the inspirational coming-of-age formula. But it has got enough heart and disco-fever exuberance to connect with audiences.

    An intensely realized, beautifully shot drama.
    • 59 Metascore

    Has a rollicking time reaching its foreseeable conclusion.

    Audiences will find themselves face to face with their own prejudices, assumptions and, perhaps, squeamishness.

    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Boasts appealing leads and dazzling court play, but the film never rises above its by-the-numbers plot to generate emotional heat.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way.

    A spirited comic drama, toplined by Moore's lovely performance.
