    • 100 Steven Rea
    Quite simply, a revelation.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It's a story of global consequences and historic proportions, and of astounding athleticism and synchronicity - and filmmaker Polsky ices it.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Whether it's simply the change of locale, or a change in Allen's psyche, something is up in Match Point. With a dark view of humankind, and of the vagaries of chance - bad luck, good luck, dumb luck - the filmmaker has crafted a wicked, winning gem.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A flat-out electrifying experience.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A bracing, unblinking work that serves as a painful elegy and sobering cautionary tale.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It speaks to the courage and resilience of one man, the savagery of many, and the potential, for both good and for ill, in us all.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    If vigilance and preemption, recompense and retaliation is not enough, the film asks, then what is?
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Beautifully observed, and beautifully acted by the novice thespian Polanco (culled from a New York City public school), Chop Shop is at once a heartbreaker and a story of hope and the American Dream.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Pitch-perfect and profoundly moving.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It is, without doubt, a transcendent endeavor, from its exhilaratingly smart screenplay - director David O. Russell's adaptation of the novel by former South Jersey teacher Matthew Quick - to the unexpected and moving turns of its two leads.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Without doubt one of the scariest, creepiest, gut-churningly unsettling pictures to come along in ages.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A quietly soulful study of two very different men.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    An awesome cinema spectacle.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    The real 3-D experience of the season is Pina, Wim Wenders' shockingly beautiful and moving tribute to the late German choreographer Pina Bausch.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It doesn't happen often, but when it does, look out: a movie that rocks and rolls, that transports, startles, delights, shocks, seduces. A movie that is, quite simply, great.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It's an observation of crushing truth.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    With its improvisatory score (drummer Antonio Sanchez provides a hustling backbeat throughout), its seamless shots, its leaps into the surreal, and then back again into the excruciating, embarrassing real, Birdman ascends to the greatest of heights.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Toy Story 2, like its forebear, will stand the test of time.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A wicked deconstruction of a dysfunctional clan: brothers at each other's throats; a father whose legacy is anger and betrayal; an unfaithful wife; a history of deceit. It's a horror show of hatred and festering psychic wounds.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Simply the best adaptation of any John le Carré thriller to make it to the screen.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Moreno, with her wide, watchful eyes, owns the camera - and the film. Her performance is perfectly natural and profoundly moving. Maria Full of Grace is a remarkable picture, full of suspense and discovery.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Still, somehow, The Tree of Life - impressionistic, revelatory, elliptical - works.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Has a slow-burning emotional power.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    One of the finest pieces of screen acting in the career of Juliette Binoche -- the actress playing the actress in this extraordinary film.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Wildly sad, funny and terrific documentary.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A profoundly unnerving historical document.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    It's great to see an American filmmaker - and a successful one at that - willing to simply train his cameras on the actors and let them, and their characters, come to life.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    A dazzling costume epic, a spectacle for the eyes and for the soul.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Steven Rea
    Amour arrives with plaudits and praise. But this is not hype, it is all deserved. This is a masterpiece.
