    A powerful film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Girl on the Bridge, with its doomed art-house romanticism and echoes of Fellini, may not be the deepest piece of filmmaking out there now, but it is easily the most intoxicating. Take the leap.

    One of the finest pieces of screen acting in the career of Juliette Binoche -- the actress playing the actress in this extraordinary film.

    We feel it, in our hearts. And therein lies the great power of this small, wise film.

    Quiet, rageful indictment of a two-tiered Islamic society.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 61 Metascore

    This is a sweet, gentle film - slow and sunny like a summer day, with a message that growing up can be hard, but can also serve as the wellspring of memories that will sustain you for a lifetime.

    • 100 Steven Rea
    A feel-good movie, in the absolute best sense.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It's aimed at adults as much as children, with jokes that work on multiple levels, and contraptions.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Toy Story 2, like its forebear, will stand the test of time.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A beautiful, appropriately loping little gem about growing older, daring to take risks and follow your heart. That probably sounds corny, and The Straight Story is.

    • 100 Steven Rea
    A quiet, heart-rending masterpiece, one with an actor's turn that people will remember, and rediscover, eons into the future.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    An awesome cinema spectacle.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    With its knowing take on men, messed-up romance and music, is like one long, hook-filled pop song for the eyes.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A slo-mo gem of gangster cool, of vintage Hollywood noir reimagined by a French new waver in love with American cars, American jazz, and the kind of trench-coated tough-guys embodied by Humphrey Bogart and Robert Mitchum.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A bracing, unblinking work that serves as a painful elegy and sobering cautionary tale.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A flat-out electrifying experience.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    With its feverish, percussive soundtrack and bravura cinematography, is like a bolt from the blue, chock-full of unexpected delight.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Wondrously strange and just plain wonderful.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    The movie is, start to finish, candy-colored angst.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    This sad, staggering drama should be seen: out of the grimness, and the profound calamity, you can almost taste life in your mouth.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    With a bit of Tintin and Tati, Charlie Chaplin and Wallace and Gromit echoing in the pacing and comic sensibility, Triplets of Belleville conjures up a world that's totally surprising and sublime.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A beautiful eyeful of puckish whimsy and dark-humored mystery, Hukkle (it means hiccup in Hungarian) is a little gem in which nature and humankind commingle, where coincidence and causality collide in a chain of odd, even murderous, events.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It's a masterpiece.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It's a trippy but tender examination of human emotions, relationships, all-consuming love.
