    Concerned mainly with the mechanics of the undertaking, the movie is less an incisive chronicle than a galvanizing tool for parents who are, understandably, frustrated with the system.

    White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The earnest mash-up of spoken-word performance, domestic drama and soapy romance in Things Never Said is unwieldy, to be sure, and would have sunk a less charismatic cast.

    Shelton's affection for her characters is evident but it's not enough.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    It's a plot that never takes hold, a mystery devoid of suspense... But the actors' unforced chemistry defies the artifice.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Boilerplate shootouts and conflagrations get the better of the movie's second half, but for the most part, first-time director Park Hong-soo strikes the right balance between take-no-prisoners espionage and teenage angst.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The central drama never fully engages, but the jolts that Banshee delivers are check-the-locks scary.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Some stories drag while others have zing in this anthology; binding them is a compelling sense of cultural identity — the tension between tradition and free-market modernity.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The movie has the taut efficiency of a well-constructed crime thriller, while its real-world underpinnings play out with a less convincing sense of urgency.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    In engaging but not always satisfying fashion, Jody Shapiro's film reveals the man behind the logo to be a taciturn, plain-living refugee from city life and an unlikely globe-trotting corporate spokesman.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Director Maria Sole Tognazzi gently explores what it means to be unmarried, middle-aged and female. She illuminates a seldom-seen line of work, bathes her flawed characters in affection, and makes points both obvious and astute, soft-pedaling her insights with celebratory travelogue touches.
    • 64 Metascore

    [Gibney's] chronicle informs rather than inspires, but it's a solid introduction to a fascinating figure.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Fascinating anecdotes unfold, illuminating the spontaneity and daring that went into producing the groundbreaking periodical.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    "Him" and "Her" are hardly groundbreaking cinema, but they are more rewarding than "Them."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The film can be intensely moving, yet there's a self-congratulatory tone to much of it, especially in the domestic drama.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Droll, unforced humor and low-magnitude emotional tremors register persuasively thanks to the natural performances of the three leads.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    First-time actor Garrett is better at conveying Paganini's artistic sensitivity and self-indulgence than his innovative fire. When he picks up the fiddle, though, he speaks with eloquent authority.
    • 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.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The wan drama is enlivened by bursts of black comedy, some bits more effective than others, and though it ultimately disappoints, there's promise in the understated creepiness of Riley Stearns' debut feature.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Despite its clumsiness, the film conveys the melding of modern and ancient, sensuous and sacred.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Pleasant and atmospheric family romp, offering enough mildly chilling thrills to keep everyone entertained during its brief running time.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    A decidedly upbeat number, centered on a good-hearted character.
    • 44 Metascore

    Although it offers no new angles on the story engines of loyalty and revenge, the French film boasts an intriguing milieu and the off-center, hair-trigger intensity of Samy Naceri as a crime boss.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Taking satiric aim at a familiar target, conformity, Australian playwright Tony McNamara's film debut is by turns incisive and broad.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Character eccentricities and off-kilter group dynamics play out with a comic vengeance.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Offers proof that the Korean animation industry is poised for the big leagues.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Familiar but never overly broad, this well-cast, crowd-pleasing comedy benefits from a low-key emphasis on character over high jinks.
