    The climactic shootout, which goes on for 15 minutes and has an astronomical body count, is a masterpiece of its kind.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    At turns sexy, ultra-violent and sweet, it will infiltrate your brain long after you've seen it.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    No adventurous filmgoer will want to miss Tony Takitani.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    This isn't a war movie. Rather, it's a powerful, heart-tugging portrait of the innocent victims of conflict.

    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    From the Hitchcockian opening credits to the final frame, Almodovar has Hitch on his mind.

    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    Porumboiu, who also produced and wrote, elicits remarkably deadpan performances from Teo Corban (as the show's host), Ion Sapdaru (the professor) and - especially - Mircea Andreescu, as the old man. Even the subtitles cracked me up.

    Delightful performances are delivered by all in this ingenious work of cinema that is worth seeing if only for its glorious views of the Himalayas.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    A sumptuous masterpiece by one of the greatest moviemakers of all time.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    A stunning drama from that remote former Soviet republic.

    The androgynous Dobroshi is in nearly every scene. She has an exceptional screen presence that brings authority to her portrayal of a woman seeking redemption. As for the Dardennes, they prove yet again that nobody does human frailty the way they do.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    Park's direction is flawless and Jung Jung-hoon's cinematography is stunning.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    The result is a magnificent feast for the eyes and brain.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    One of the oddest, most perplexing -- and delightful -- films to come along this year. And last year, too.
    • 92 Metascore

    While Tarr's newest epic, Werckmeister Harmonies, isn't intended for the shopping-mall crowd, it is more viewer-friendly and will please adventurous moviegoers.
    • 84 Metascore

    It's time to stop calling Azazel Jacobs a "promising" filmmaker. With Momma's Man, Jacobs achieves the promise.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    Whether Tiny Furniture is a mumblecore movie is an open question. It has many of the tell-tale signs of that ill-defined genre; although improvised dialogue, a mumblecore staple, is minimal.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 V.A. Musetto
    It's a highly erotic work that at no point seems staged. Credit brilliant use of fog, mirrors, silhouettes, slow motion and special effects worthy of a music video.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    It is filmmaking as it should be but usually isn't.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    You might be reminded of Jean-Jacques Beineix's 1981 thriller "Diva," which also involves crooked cops and Metro chases. But you need never have seen "Diva" to be captivated by the exhilarating Point Blank.

    Pieta is one of Kim’s most complex and mature efforts, melding violence and humor into dark entertainment.
    • 82 Metascore

    Lilya is portrayed by Oksana Akinshina, who gives a dynamic, heartbreaking performance... She was wonderful in ["Brothers"], but is even more astonishing in Lilya 4-Ever.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    The result is an immensely enjoyable portrait of a strange-looking, non-comforming genius who loved women as much as designing masterpieces but was never able to commit to them. In other words: great architect, lousy family man.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    A twisty, spectacular farce.
    • 74 Metascore

    You know a performance has to be special when a Palestinian wins Israel's version of the Best Actress Oscar. But why should politics detract from a stunning performance?
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Combining a thoughtful script with splendid acting -- especially by Sansa -- Bellocchio has fashioned a tense thriller that is both understated and powerful.
    • 69 Metascore

    The faint of heart might want to leave early. If you elect to stay, remember: You were warned.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and the Marquis de Sade (interesting combination, no?).
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    A modest and charming comedy from Israel.
    • 74 Metascore

    You're either going to love this film and run out to see everything Majewski has directed, or you're going to be bored silly. I'm hoping for the former.
    • 76 Metascore

    Doesn't have the crossover appeal of the Mexican sexcapade "Y Tu Mama Tambien," but it does herald the arrival of an audacious young filmmaker. We can't wait to see what he does next.
