    Though the story is drawn in broad strokes and overloaded with melodrama, director Mat Whitecross' exuberant feature understands the communal joy and personal necessity of rock 'n' roll.
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore

    Despite effective moments, VanAlkemade's film is too diffuse. He gives us snippets of the group's spirited performances, but their effect on audiences remains unclear.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Droll, unforced humor and low-magnitude emotional tremors register persuasively thanks to the natural performances of the three leads.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    An affecting portrait of a young widow and her two teenage daughters.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The English dubbing is far from picture-perfect, with uneven voice performances and choppy synchronization dulling some of the material’s spark.
    • 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.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    A handsome production but one that struggles to integrate its various elements -- cabaret-society glamour, intellectual fervor, family drama, impossible romance and droll humor.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The central drama never fully engages, but the jolts that Banshee delivers are check-the-locks scary.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The movie, though uneven, benefits from a strong sense of place and an exceptionally well-cast lead.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The movie could have made its points — war is bad; music is the universal language — in half the time. But the harmonies are sweet, the acoustic picking impressive.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    A decidedly old-fashioned war film that reaches for epic sweep but is often bogged down in cliched drama and two-dimensional characters.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Full of incident but nearly devoid of dramatic tension, The Children of Huang Shi is a based-on-fact saga that has lost much of its power on the long road to the screen.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The simple but affecting film begins a weeklong award-qualifying run Friday before opening in stateside art houses Jan. 21, and is worth a look for its gutsy and commanding central performance.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    At once understated and slightly pulpy, the film comes down squarely on the side of compassion. It’s no polemic, but neither is it as character-driven as it aims to be.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The blurring of fact and fiction has been a part of the Amityville saga since it became public, but for Lutz there's no gray area in his memories, whose power is undiminished.
    • 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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Meredith has woven together a half-dozen portraits of contemporary lives-on-the-edge in this quietly searing drama.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Character eccentricities and off-kilter group dynamics play out with a comic vengeance.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Neither as breezy nor as edgy as it pretends to be.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Director George Hickenlooper captures the energy and ultra-irony of Warhol's scene, but his attempts to give the film a conventional biopic arc end up wallowing in dime-store psychology.
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.
