    Very few actors would have the courage to allow von Trier to put them through what Dafoe and Gainsbourg experienced in the name of art.

    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    An achingly beautiful look at the most tragic victims of the longtime war in Chechnya: children.

    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Kore-eda presents the deeply moving story in a documentary style that is both gentle and compelling.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    A must-see for Miike's passionate legion of fans. But even action buffs who've never seen any of his films before will be drawn in by this masterful exercise in cinematic butchery.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Vladimir Garin and Ivan Dobronravov are amazingly natural as the boys, and Konstantin Lavronenko impresses as the taciturn father.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    A deliciously elusive mystery.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Working from an unfinished script by the late, great Krzysztof Kieslowski, Stuhr directs in a laid-back, deadpan style that, at times, recalls Fellini.

    Morton deserves an Oscar nomination, but she is unlikely to get one. The movie is too dark and out of the mainstream to impress the conservative fogies who vote for the prizes.

    What do you get when you mix a Douglas Sirk melodrama with a Sergio Leone Western? Tears of the Black Tiger, a high-camp Western from, of all places, Thailand.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    A Western, but any similarities between it and, say, a Gene Autry or Hopalong Cassidy shoot-em-up are nonexistent.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Throughout, Mrs. Marcos comes across as an elitist, insulated against real life by wealth and power -- yet one who truly believes she is misunderstood and has done nothing wrong.

    If "Starsky & Hutch" is your idea of art, keep your distance from Distant, the droll new movie from maverick Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan. If, on the other hand, you're searching for something that will remain with you long after leaving the theater, run, don't walk, to Distant.

    [REC] 3 Genesis is a prequel to the first two "[REC]" movies, but that doesn't much matter. You don't need to have seen them to enjoy this film, which provides fresh blood for a tired genre.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Subversively funny, it's a welcome alternative to the big-budget movies flooding into theaters at this time of year.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Perfectly captures the cultural and emotional wasteland that is suburban Jersey.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Nadezhda Markina is splendid as Elena, who speaks little but still manages to make her thoughts and emotions crystal clear.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Wild Grass is a French movie for people afraid of French movies.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Can be summed up in one word: style.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    I've seen three or four other movies by Miike, and I can tell you that he's one of the most exciting, versatile directors working today.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Unspeakable brutality ensues, including a rape, a castration and cold-blooded murder. Dumont never mentions Iraq, but the parallels are clear.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Beautifully composed, The Last Mistress, Breillat's 11th film, deals with the theme she has put forth in such previous work as "Romance" and "Fat Girl": how women deal with sexual desire.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    The film's disclosure that Camorra money is involved with the reconstruction of New York City's Ground Zero will give viewers something to think about.
    • 72 Metascore

    After winning raves at last year's New York Film Festival, Pablo Larrain's Tony Manero, from Chile, is receiving a run here.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    It could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    The Good, the Bad, the Weird may owe a lot to other films, but it is always fresh and never boring.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    The film is less violent and bloody than much of the director's work, but the absurdity level is sky high. Takashi Miike is at the top of his game, loving every minute of his surreal visit to the twilight zone.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Hilarious from first frame to last.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Censors in Iran must have been smoking weed when they approved I'm Taraneh, 15, a sympathetic portrait of an unwed mother.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Showcases a brilliantly realistic performance by Abbie Cornish as Heidi. She's a provocative mix of naivete and ripe, unbridled sexuality.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Andersson has a one-of-a-kind style that not all viewers will appreciate. His humor is not at all like Hollywood’s. His is leisurely and cerebral — two words never heard in La La Land.
