    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    A tough-minded, bracingly blunt look at the sometimes debilitating cost of doing business that casts an unblinking eye on the physical, emotional and moral bottom line.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    A remarkably vibrant and frank look at one precocious teen’s emerging sexual life — a film with the stuff of life coursing through its veins and sex very much on its brain.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    All hands on both sides of the camera do outstanding work. Clooney seems to be enjoying himself thoroughly as the old grump whose creative flame hasn’t been entirely extinguished, but it falls more to Robertson to carry the film, which she does with great energy and appeal.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    It’s an audacious concept, and Docter’s imagination, along with those of his numerous collaborators, is adventurous and genially daft enough to put it over.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    Blanchett makes an indelible impression as a woman who, through breeding, intense personal cultivation and social expectations, has brilliantly mastered the skill of navigating through life.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    An enthrallingly intimate look at the brilliant, troubled and always charismatic screen legend.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Todd McCarthy
    The formula of ingredients is familiar and time-tested, to be sure, but some cocktails go down much better than others and McQuarrie and company have gotten theirs just right here.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    The central idea is quite clever and appealing, and that the charm meter is turned up all the way.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Nicholson is outstanding as he gradually but tellingly sketches in aspects of a man driven by a mission that outstrips his instincts as a professional lawman.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    An eye-popping visual spectacle that serves up a vivid picture of what the planet might have looked like when reptiles ruled the Earth.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    The lively visuals, busy story, zippy pace and TV show running time will make this go down very easily with the target moppet audience.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    An intelligent, insidiously plotted Hitchcockian thriller directed in souped-up, modern expressionistic style.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Snappy and unusually funny under fundamentally serious circumstances, without being contrived or sitcomy.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Taking film noir material and turning it inside out visually and morally, The Deep End is an absorbing, beautifully made melodrama that succeeds on formal levels more than it does with suspense or emotion.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Bright, glossy, grandly scaled and dramatically stolid, 79-year-old writer-director Jerzy Kawalerowicz's longtime dream project mixes earnest religiosity with the depraved cruelty of Nero's Rome in the classic De Mille tradition.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    An intermittently compelling and occasionally hilarious road movie.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Lee has made a brutal but sensitively observed film about the fringes of the Civil War.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Schroeder's first non-American film in 16 years feels like a rejuvenation; his adaptation of Fernando Vallejo's 1994 novel has a naturalistic freedom and ease that is both refreshing and direct in the way it tells a deeply disturbing story.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    May or not be Robert Altman's best film in years, but it is certainly his most pleasurable.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    A charming, if lightweight, Coen brothers escapade flecked by plenty of visual and performance grace notes.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Eastwood's latest picture boasts tight storytelling, sharp acting and an eye for unexpected, enlivening detail.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    An exceptionally tasty contempo comedic romance.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Engaging, refreshingly human in its humor and becomingly modest in its aspirations, this hip look at being out of it announces some promising new talent and will play well with young audiences looking for comfortable entertainment that doesn't feel manufactured.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    This unlikely collaboration between actors Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott is extremely well directed, making for a smartly made, delightfully acted period piece whose sensibility neatly straddles art films and the mainstream.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    A randy, irreverent, slice-of-life no-budgeter that's played for laughs and gets them.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Swings, even if it doesn't always soar.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    All the meticulousness, intelligence, taste and superior This curious, cloistered piece... is continuously absorbing but lacks the emotional resonance that would have made it completely satisfying.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Underachieves in its own way by trapping an expansive, probing story in a brittle, highly artificial style that constricts character and emotional development.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Opulently produced, fittingly enough, and quite entertaining as a surface ride through the up, down and somewhat up again life of one of the New Hollywood's most colorful characters.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    An intensely scenic, refreshingly humanistic oater that dares to be sincere and open-hearted.
