    La Camioneta: The Journey of One American School Bus is just what the title indicates — and that turns out be an intimate and vivid report on a surprising connection between North and Central America.

    A dazzling introduction, both immersive and sweeping, to one of the planet’s oldest primates (who knew?).

    A few bumpy patches notwithstanding, the new feature is an exquisitely designed, emotionally absorbing work of dark enchantment.

    A clear-eyed, compelling look at getting out the vote, grassroots-style.

    Lynch's film is a work of steady chronological progression. Without straining for big-picture significance, it provides a composed look into the revolutionary spirit.

    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.

    Barbara Sukowa's performance in the title role is the kind that reverberates long after the screen goes black.

    Writer-director Peter Strickland...uses atmosphere as others would use plot, and knows how to provoke comic shudders. But he tends to repeat himself, and he doesn't quite find a satisfying denouement for the inventive premise.

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

    Megumi Sasaki's follow-up to her first documentary, 2008's Herb & Dorothy, is as engaging and unpretentious as its subjects.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A compellingly unconventional, elliptical sports documentary that explores the mysterious realm of might-have-been.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Unfocused lapses aside, though, the film is intriguing and discomforting in equal measure, using its brief running time to frame thoughtful, boundary-pushing questions.

    Australian writer-director Kim Mordaunt doesn't always succeed at balancing the sentimental, the political and the ethnographic, but at its strongest the story is a seamless melding of history's dark undertow and a child's indefatigable optimism.

    It's the loosely connected encounters of the early sequences that are remarkable in their poignancy and humor.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    With its grasp of suspense and character, it hits the mark as a portrait of openhearted determination that's devoid of desperation.
    • 59 Metascore

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

    Keener's performance riveting.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore

    Hicks' unabashed love letter is, above all, a stirring picture of communion between artists.

    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.

    For all their layered complexity, the songs can slip into a musical and rhetorical sameness. But the concert's aesthetic power is undeniable. The swirl of sound and motion burns with a bright intensity, not unlike like the onstage Tesla coils that have been reconfigured as instruments.

    Though it hasn't the sweep to be greater than the sum of its parts, the movie offers an absorbing mix of melodrama and historical detail.

    With charm to spare, Valentin fuses nostalgia and humor in an episodic story whose ultimate focus is the birth of a writer.

    Although the film's jabs at TV journalism are nothing new, Carrey brings to the material the sense of someone who's too smart for his work yet loves it -- the essence, perhaps, of being a ham.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Bears a wealth of imaginative riches and a signature mix of outre personalities and gadgets.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    However masterful, the first-rate stunt work, effects, action cinematography and cutting (by no less than three editors) lose impact through sheer repetition.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    This culture-clash romantic comedy, scripted by Elizabeth Hunter and Saladin K. Patterson, goes exactly where you'd expect, but helmer Lynn, a comedy vet, gets it there with such infectious energy that you don't much mind the story's predictability.

    Awash in nostalgia, "Lions" combines a gentle coming-of-age story with swashbuckling fantasy. While it lacks a necessary tension in its establishing scenes and might be too soft for those who prefer grittier fare.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    An intensely realized, beautifully shot drama.
