    Neither as breezy nor as edgy as it pretends to be.

    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.

    White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.

    Forbes pushes the positivity a bit insistently, yet one of the most appealing aspects of her film is its depiction of kids thriving in an unorthodox household.

    "Him" and "Her" are hardly groundbreaking cinema, but they are more rewarding than "Them."

    The story comes to life only fitfully, even with — or perhaps because of — its court intrigue and supporting characters.... But there are striking glimpses of grit, muck and voluptuous beauty (the great Ellen Kuras handled the cinematography) and, above all, there's Winslet.

    Offers proof that the Korean animation industry is poised for the big leagues.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Doesn't depart from the inspirational coming-of-age formula. But it has got enough heart and disco-fever exuberance to connect with audiences.

    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Well-meaning but implausible story.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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.

    None of it is quite satisfying, especially when old-age makeup takes center stage. But striking moments develop along the way, jolts of weird joy and melancholy as menace gathers under the Mediterranean sun.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    A shiver of cosmic comedy runs through the film's tragic turns.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The film offers fascinating glimpses of a hardworking but unhurried way of life, though it doesn't have the powerful dramatic hook of "The Story of the Weeping Camel."

    This introduction to the Buddha's Eightfold Path is often clever and occasionally exasperating.

    Though his treatment of the subject is often superficial, Perlman makes a clear argument for the broader implications, especially for Western consumers.
    • 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.

    Shelton's affection for her characters is evident but it's not enough.
    • 44 Metascore

    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.

    Fascinating anecdotes unfold, illuminating the spontaneity and daring that went into producing the groundbreaking periodical.
    • 58 Metascore

    Although it is overloaded with backstory and often tries too hard, Aurora Borealis finds a reasonable balance between romance and family drama.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The laugher about a meek middle manager who finds a life-changing fortune takes a while to hit its stride, but in its best stretches, it offers deliriously spirited farce.
    • 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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Aiming for wacky and heartwarming, the film is, at its sporadic best, a mildly diverting coming-of-age story. At its worst, it feels forced.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The two young female leads, exceptionally well cast, deliver strong performances, and the drama benefits from Weber’s interest in understanding rather than demonizing the bully.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Hubbell lays the groundwork for a nuts-and-bolts examination of changes over the decades in treatment and teaching techniques. In the present tense, however, the first-person aspect of his documentary can veer toward the cutesy.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Has the feel of a contemporary screwball romance, if not the crackling one-liners of classic screwball. But Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine make a charming star-crossed couple, and tweens and teens will find enough plot reversals to keep them hooked.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Pleasant and atmospheric family romp, offering enough mildly chilling thrills to keep everyone entertained during its brief running time.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    There’s no question that the feature is a leaner, meaner affair than its predecessor. That’s not enough, though, to counterbalance the often oppressive self-seriousness (though Miles Teller gives it a welcome shot) or to plaster over the holes in the premise.
