    Why make a documentary about these marginal historical figures? Wouldn't one about their famous dad, author of "Death in Venice," etc., be more valuable?

    It is a boring parade of talking heads and technical gibberish that will do little to advance the Linux cause. Try again, guys.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Pretty but tedious Euro-pap at its most self-indulgent.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A self-indulgent work.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    But by the time events unfold, viewers will most likely have given up on this melodramatic.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Deadly dull.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Director Ferzan Ozpetek's film doesn't break any new ground; rather, it recycles every cliché about gays in what is essentially an extended soap opera.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A movie more interested in shocking than in entertaining.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Might have worked as a travelogue, minus the story. In its present form, it is hardly worth the $10 you will be asked to fork over at the box office.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The movie's only redeeming qualities are its stars.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Schmaltzy and contrived.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Something high schoolers might yawn through in history class, but they have no choice. You do.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Viewers are left wondering just why they should care about them and the rest of the film's one-dimensional characters.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Provides a few minor thrills, but overall is talky and implausible.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Will go down in history as the movie that showed a turtle getting an enema. It also features a hot performance by Marguerite Moreau.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Lackluster anime.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Fails to elicit any substantive information from his (Tommy Davis) subjects. And he fails to put their plight into perspective.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Your baby is near death. Instead of dropping everything to save his life, you make sure the video camera keeps rolling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Arlyck spends more time following himself and his own lefty family than checking up on Sean.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    If you go to the movies to ogle topless young women, Simon is definitely for you. If, on the other hand, you want something more cerebral with your $10 ticket and overpriced snacks, stay clear of this Dutch melodrama.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The story is superficial at best. And the movie is too long.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Colpaert makes nice use of blue and green hues, and he makes some valid points about the Iraqi war. But the script lacks coherence and ends with a 180-degree flip that lessens the impact of what has gone before.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A lightweight French comedy worth watching only for Cecile de France. The gamine actress - decked out in short reddish hair, black tights and a thigh-high mini - is charming as Jessica.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    There are a few scares, but not enough to make up for the murky script.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Amu
    Fails to grab the imagination as it unfolds in familiar TV-movie fashion.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Wavers uncomfortably between satire and dime-store existentialism on the big screen. It's sort of as if Charlie Kaufman rewrote "The Fountain."
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The comedy is without distinction and the conclusion is melodramatic. I must note that ads for the film are misleading because they give no hint of the dark side of The Bubble.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    So beautifully filmed (as if through a gauze curtain), it is especially sad that the script doesn't measure up.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Harper and the film's director, Jeremy Kagan, try valiantly, but they are unable to bring Meir to life or hold viewers' attentions.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    There are some funny moments, plus occasional nudity and sex, but the joke quickly wears off. What might have worked as a half-hour TV show doesn't suit itself to a feature-length film.
