    In a season of proliferating issue-oriented documentaries, Voices of Iraq stands out by the sheer nature of its provenance: Iraqis themselves filmed the footage during a six-month period this year.

    That a ragtag group of intellectuals and misfits could so blindside the FBI and hold the media in its grip is an especially sobering aspect of this dynamically told story.

    Although it takes a while for Yu's thesis to jell, the film makes a lasting impression as it delves into an unfashionable territory: character as fate rather than a function of pharmaceuticals.

    The film is essential viewing for anyone who cares about the fate of the mountain region and the legacy of the Dalai Lama.

    As frank, discerning and eloquent as its subjects, The Woodmans is one of the most affecting art-themed documentaries.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    A well-told tale, and though its compact running time makes it a fine TV fit, its visual poetry is worth a big-screen look.

    • 80 Sheri Linden
    A terrifically engaging picture of life beyond the headlines, My Perestroika lifts the veil of Cold War mystery.

    • 80 Sheri Linden
    But above all it's a portrait of stunned grief, of the devastation families endure, whether through violence, accidents, illness or incarceration.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    The handsomely shot, expertly button-pushing scare-fest has the polish and the cast to draw older audiences who grew up on shockers built from performances rather than CGI.

    With its long takes and deliberate pacing, Beyond the Hills is demanding but always engrossing, even during its repetitive middle section.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    Moving somewhat obviously toward denouement, the film hits a false note or two. But mainly it's exhilarating in its refusal to make smooth what's messy, inchoate and tenaciously alive.

    The unhurried film is a beauty. Shooting digitally — a first for Jarmusch and a paradox for a movie that so ardently celebrates the artisanal — cinematographer Yorick Le Saux uses nocturnal lighting to eloquent effect. The titular lovers are beauties too, soulful and captivating. Swinton and Hiddleston make their love story one for the ages.

    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.
