    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.

    It's a plot that never takes hold, a mystery devoid of suspense... But the actors' unforced chemistry defies the artifice.

    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.

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

    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.

    • 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.

    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.

    • 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.

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

    "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.

    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Droll, unforced humor and low-magnitude emotional tremors register persuasively thanks to the natural performances of the three leads.

    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.
    • 34 Metascore

    Pleasant and atmospheric family romp, offering enough mildly chilling thrills to keep everyone entertained during its brief running time.

    A decidedly upbeat number, centered on a good-hearted character.

    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.

    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Well-meaning but implausible story.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 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
    A shiver of cosmic comedy runs through the film's tragic turns.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Full of insights on love and sex -- which will have more resonance for lesbians but pack a universal punch.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Causes don't get much worthier, and Smile is a labor of love, a portion of the film's proceeds earmarked for the humanitarian group.
