    Will go down in history as the movie that showed a turtle getting an enema. It also features a hot performance by Marguerite Moreau.

    Sillen drags out generic talking heads who say generic things about Bernstein, a generic boho. The film might suffice if you're looking for something to watch on cable TV some early morning. But it isn't worth the hassle and expense of going to a theater.

    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.

    So beautifully filmed (as if through a gauze curtain), it is especially sad that the script doesn't measure up.

    The NYU film grad steals liberally from Woody (especially "Annie Hall") - from camera placement to body language to plot twists to the whole Ingmar Bergman thing. That's not necessarily bad, if the project works. This one doesn't - it just annoys.

    Is nothing sacred? In the schizophrenic war epic The War lords, Jet Li, the hunky action hero, cries -- no, make that sobs -- several times. What will his legion of young male fans think?
    • 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."
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The result is a hodgepodge of plots and styles, a fault compounded by stiff acting and, except for a few scenes, wooden direction.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A self-indulgent work.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Here the characters aren't compelling enough to ask viewers to give their brains a workout to determine exactly what's going on.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Director Jacob Rosenberg makes heavy use of family photos and talking heads, but the person we want most to hear from, Way himself, is largely missing. Go figure.

    After Fall, Winter would play better minus at least half an hour of flab.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    A plot? Tony Jaa don't need no stinking plot.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The movie's only redeeming qualities are its stars.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    But by the time events unfold, viewers will most likely have given up on this melodramatic.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Gil Kofman has an interesting and funny story to tell in his documentary Unmade in China. Too bad he spends more time talking about himself than detailing his misadventures in Xiamen, China, population 3.67 million.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    The preachy movie is hardly worth the hassle and money required to see it in a theater. Better to download it or wait for it to pop up on TV.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Lilien is an amateur filmmaker, and his movie -- which at times is more about Lilien than Pale Male -- shows it.
    • 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.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Something high schoolers might yawn through in history class, but they have no choice. You do.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Clichéd stories, clichéd characters. All that's missing is Ed Burns.
    • 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Love in Space is just what movie fans have been waiting for: a romantic comedy from Communist China.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    There are a few sweet moments as the story reaches its unsurprising conclusion. But, all in all, Flakes isn't going to bowl you over.
    • 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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 38 V.A. Musetto
    Arlyck spends more time following himself and his own lefty family than checking up on Sean.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Skip it, and rent "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" instead.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Brainless and pointless.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    An amateurish, pointless exercise in filmmaking.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    There's plenty of material here for a dark comedy, but director Martin Curland isn't up to the job. His film - like Luke - plods along, unsure of exactly what it's supposed to be.
