    • 88 Ty Burr
    Remains worth seeing as an achingly nostalgic farewell to youthful idealism, tinged with a kind of loving contempt.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    A delightfully deadpan comedy from Germany, is one of those movies where nothing whatsoever seems to happen until you look closely, at which point everything happens.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    A slowly flowering miracle: an epic of normal life.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Rambles without apparent purpose, and yet it blooms in emotional impact as it goes.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Tarantino may have nicked the title first, but this is the real ''Pulp Fiction," with all the drama and the dead ends that implies.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Stylish and only superficially superficial, Happily Ever After plunks us down with three male friends as they dance on the edge of their 40s.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Entertaining and enraging.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    With pained gentleness, her film insists we make our homelands within us and take them wherever we go.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    The real deal, an often awkward but nonetheless terrifically compelling high-stakes human drama.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    A broad, foursquare piece of populist filmmaking that happens to be tremendously moving.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Remarkably, ''Me and You" doesn't shock so much as soothe.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    There's a delicate balance here between expression and belligerence.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    The film confirms director Audiard as a master of visual mood, in this case one of barely expressed emotional panic.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Builds slowly and naturally to an unbearable personal crisis.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    In its unstated cynicism, beauty, and self-pity, Last Days fits the myth of Cobain like a torn pair of jeans.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    The Aristocrats -- the movie, not the joke -- is a working demonstration of the pleasures of the profane.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    An exquisitely filmed, emotionally transfixing epic about a white South African boy's journey to return his pet cheetah to the wild.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Richly provocative entertainment, as heady as a cocktail party with the Manhattan literati and as vaguely troubling as the morning after.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    This is one cinematic novella that stays with you for quite a while.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    A puzzle: a hermetically sealed period piece so intensely relevant to our current state of affairs that it takes your breath away.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Even more than "Chicken Run," Were-Rabbit is a tiny plasticine masterpiece.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    You're left with the bewilderment and joy on Kane's face as he plays the old songs, and the sense of ghosts just behind his back.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    The movie's masterstroke is to avoid interviewing the usual anti-globalist suspects and let solid, hard-working middle Americans speak.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Goblet of Fire is the entry in which Rowling finally took off the gloves.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Brokeback may be too polished for some people, too elegantly dispassionate in its study of choked passion.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Tommy Lee Jones makes his feature directing debut here, and the film is as weathered, subtle, and sympathetic as the actor's own face.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    The director can work wonders within his celluloid universe, but when the time comes to hand us back to reality, he stumbles. With this movie, that hurts.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    Fateless looks man's inhumanity to man square in the eye and pronounces it standard operating procedure, and that may be the greater horror.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    An agit-doc of unusual depth. It has a point -- that the primary business of America over the past half-century has been waging war -- and it supports that point with nuance, research, and a willingness to hear the other side of the argument.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Ty Burr
    The movie's still a wickedly droll put-on. Better yet, beneath the fun lurks a dry and weary sigh at life's refusal to match the tidiness of art.
