    A somber, meditative, almost poetic film that delivers the horrors of bondage stripped down and head-on.
    • 92 Metascore

    The first all computer-animated feature, which brings a bedroom of playthings to bouncy life, is yummy eye candy spiked with 3-D-style tactile treats.
    • 88 Metascore

    A little slapstick, a little action, rich characters and a whopping serving of wit. All baked to near-perfection.

    What remains is a great Vangelis score, astonishing production design, Hauer's career role -- and a movie that deserves its cult reputation despite an unloving heart. [11 Sept 1992]

    What's most amazing is the finely nuanced performances these bits and bytes deliver.

    Director Gillian Armstrong takes the delicate snow globe that is Little Women and gives it a bold new shake. [21 Dec 1994]

    With the astonishingly assured newcomer Jason Schwartzman to bounce off of, Murray has his best comic foil since those feisty rodents in Groundhog Day and Caddyshack. [5 February 1999, Life, p.11E]

    We are happy to report there is intelligent life in feature animation beyond planet Disney and the gaseous ball of foul language known as South Park.

    A riotous and wee bit PG-racy computer-animated family fable, is the most thoroughly enjoyable cartoon feature since "Toy Story" burst out of its box.

    A movie with this kind of haunting power comes along only once every decade or so. [20 February 1991, Life, p.11D]

    It's one of the most emotionally draining climaxes of the year.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Susan Wloszczyna
    There is that feeling you get inside when a movie suddenly starts to push your every button, creating an emotional connection that goes beyond pure reason and mere emotion. It elevates your mood to such a point that you wish you could hug the screen out of sheer joy and recognition. That is what Gloria did to me.

    Babe, a live-action fable about a valiant pig who conquers prejudice like a barnyard Jackie Robinson, is in a league of its own when it comes to enchantment.

    When it comes to eloquently telling it like it is, Election puts the nation's political pundits to shame.

    Retains the power to turn heads -- and stomachs.

    Visual pyrotechnics and dark humor aside, Three Kings rules because it dares to dig for such truths, whether banal or significant.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 63 Susan Wloszczyna
    a painful though sadly humorous portrait of sisterhood deftly written by Leigh's mom, Barbara Turner, and directed with just-right spareness by Ulu Grosbard. [08 Dec 1995]

    • 81 Metascore

    It's a clever, multitiered affair built around the title rituals, frosted with delicious characterizations and tasty repartee. [11 March 1994, Life, p.4D]

    The suspense becomes so unbearable that it's easy to overlook questions about whether anyone in such circumstances would continue filming.

    Instead of ladling on the Scorsese sauce, Robert De Niro's Bronx accent is on semisweet nostalgia. He presents a domestic drama spiced with humor about a boy torn between his working-stiff dad (De Niro in fine regular-fella mode) and Chazz Palminteri's easy-money ways. De Niro doesn't let arty camera angles sub for good storytelling. And he draws memorable performances from two amazing young, new actors. [01 Oct 1993, p. 8D]

    Isn't all that romantic and is only half as funny as it thinks it is.

    The director was smart enough to take a trait that often caused an actor to be be typecast as a menacing figure and turn it into a strength.

    A good Woody Allen flick is a thing of joy these days and, at times, Blue Jasmine is even a great one, close to being an equal to 2005's "Match Point."
    • 77 Metascore

    A film that wins on 'Courage' of its convictions. {12 July 1996, p. D1]

    The bloody fingerprints of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers — among other violence-prone auteurs — are smeared all over his tidy and tautly-told Blue Ruin.

    Like most of Jarmusch’s films, the emphasis is not on action but interaction—especially the verbal kind. And atmosphere.
    • 76 Metascore

    The kind of quirky, character-driven comedy they don't make much anymore.

    Most of its pleasures come from the way it confounds expectations.
