    In Binoche's masterfully contained performance, Camille's clouded eyes sometimes brighten. If we didn't know how her story will unfold, that spark might have been comforting.

    Megumi Sasaki's follow-up to her first documentary, 2008's Herb & Dorothy, is as engaging and unpretentious as its subjects.

    Well-meaning but implausible story.

    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.

    Other than the actors, their costumes, and a few props, everything in Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is digital illusion, and the effects are often exhilarating.

    Mumblecore meets Arthur Conan Doyle in the ambitious, if not always satisfying, Cold Weather.

    Idiocracy, is often stingingly funny -- and an undeserving resident of the summer's-end movie dumping ground.

    It can feel repetitive and oversimplified. Aesthetically, though, it has an aching, dreamlike pull, constructing a panoramic view of history through the prism of collective and personal memory.

    The ground-level view of New York — high-energy, semi-farcical — avoids clichés while finding its own romantic pulse with Duris' charmer the compelling center of the buoyant and bittersweet storm.

    To the unlikely role of a Bogart-esque reluctant hero, Leonardo DiCaprio brings an intensity that compels even when the script falters.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Written by Amy Lowe Starbin and directed by Jen McGowan, both first-timers, the feature is alive with interactions that feel spontaneous.

    [Gibney's] chronicle informs rather than inspires, but it's a solid introduction to a fascinating figure.

    Though the comic confection's clunky moments keep it from achieving soufflé delicacy, its bright zingers and seamless fantasy sequences amp the playfulness, and the mostly unforced performances complement the production's cartoonish exuberance.

    Although much of the plot defies credulity, Richard Donner directs the odd-couple action drama with a nimble facility that draws viewers in.

    As a portrait of children who are wanted and loved, it's intimate and often delightful.

    Taking satiric aim at a familiar target, conformity, Australian playwright Tony McNamara's film debut is by turns incisive and broad.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A delightfully unforced comedy with a sure grasp of character and setting.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    Francisca Gavilán's lead performance burns with a dark radiance that's anything but self-congratulatory.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    The film flirts with upper-class stereotypes, but in the nuanced writing and the work of the strong cast, led by a terrific Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, it goes far deeper.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    Offers solid, kid-friendly storytelling.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The collision of adolescent hormones and parental folly, hardly new cinematic territory, gets a bracing absurdist slant in Youth in Revolt.

    Solid family fare. Like its source material, the Missouri-shot Saving Shiloh is down-home country without condescending to hicks from the sticks.

    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A fascinating glimpse of kids' role in the evangelical movement's political agenda.

    Dunne creates a full-blooded character. The film around him, unfortunately, takes low-key to the realm of tepid.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Delivering visual drama and understated character study, sometimes in disappointingly formulaic fashion, the feature has its incisive moments but falls short as both epic and intimate portrait.

    The setting abounds in beauty, and the storytelling abounds in obvious cues that mute the intended suspense, if not the horror.

    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Thomas’ direction, especially of the villainous roles, gives a lot of the action a self-conscious, not-quite-real quality. Some aspects of the movie’s intentional artifice work better than others.

    The central drama never fully engages, but the jolts that Banshee delivers are check-the-locks scary.
    • 62 Metascore

    Wonderfully weird and wistful adventure-comedy about a fish-out-of-water oceanographer.
