    Taking satiric aim at a familiar target, conformity, Australian playwright Tony McNamara's film debut is by turns incisive and broad.
    • 63 Metascore

    There's enough dark sizzle between leads Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin to keep the audience involved through the underpowered middle stretches before the film regains its footing, delivering a disquieting shiver of a conclusion.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A delightfully unforced comedy with a sure grasp of character and setting.

    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.

    A story that might have been alive with messy complexity is instead genial and polite.

    As to truly exploring the phenomenon of a live-tweeted collective fiction, the documentary makes a couple of intriguing observations but doesn't look far beyond the metrics, content to exult in the wow factor of it all, which admittedly is considerable.

    Offers solid, kid-friendly storytelling.

    The collision of adolescent hormones and parental folly, hardly new cinematic territory, gets a bracing absurdist slant in Youth in Revolt.

    The huge political and social divide is in full evidence, but the strength of the doc is that it shows that those sides aren't as monolithic as the red and blue blocks on electoral maps suggest.

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

    Though the film, which lapses at times into repetitiousness, could have been trimmer and sleeker, even non-aficionados will be swept up by its dynamic look at the creative process.

    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.

    Beyond explanation is the art itself. Animating Van Gogh’s bold impasto, already kinetic on the canvas, could have been merely superfluous. As moving pictures, though, the brushstrokes have an unexpected pull in this uneven but deeply felt homage.

    The setting abounds in beauty, and the storytelling abounds in obvious cues that mute the intended suspense, if not the horror.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 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
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    Wonderfully weird and wistful adventure-comedy about a fish-out-of-water oceanographer.

    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.
    • 61 Metascore

    Two Lovers and a Bear is above all thrillingly cinematic, even when its elements of lived-in intensity and jokey fantasy refuse to coalesce.

    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The decidedly irreverent nature of much of the proceedings will be a turnoff to some viewers, a tonic to others.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The faux press conferences and perverse inventions (SurvivaBall, anyone?) that are included here highlight corporate greed and governmental shortsightedness as shrewdly as ever.

    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Fine performances and bristling language compel in this overlong, often off-putting but well-observed New York story.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    It's an adrenaline rush of a film.

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