    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Well-meaning but implausible story.
    • 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."

    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Shelton's affection for her characters is evident but it's not enough.
    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Fascinating anecdotes unfold, illuminating the spontaneity and daring that went into producing the groundbreaking periodical.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Amongst the cardboard-cutout supporting characters, Lauren Graham brings a welcome deadpan sensibility to the overeager proceedings.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    The immigration-themed messages of acceptance and encouragement are clearly spelled out, often in heavy-handed fashion, and an overriding blandness mutes the drama. But there’s also something apt in the straightforward telling of the against-the-odds adventure.
    • 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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    [Gibney's] chronicle informs rather than inspires, but it's a solid introduction to a fascinating figure.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Frost is a likable lead and an easy rooting interest. But his affability isn’t enough to give this silly-sweet feature the edge and dimension that would make it a memorable contribution to the subgenre epitomized by The Full Monty — comedies in which middle-aged, unassuming Brits discover their inner showman.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Though it’s strictly for the faithful, the tween-friendly mix of cute and earnest has a forthright sharpness and is never cloying.
    • 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.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    A decidedly upbeat number, centered on a good-hearted character.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Instead of subversion, Mazer's first outing as a feature director offers only a tweak of genre conventions. He does achieve an above-average share of laugh-out-loud moments — welcome compensation in a romp that grows more forced with every turn.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Offers more laughs than most comedies of recent vintage. But what was subversive on the tube feels muted at feature length.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    A thoughtful piece of advocacy journalism.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Fine performances and bristling language compel in this overlong, often off-putting but well-observed New York story.
