    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.
    • 75 Metascore

    Hilarious from first frame to last.

    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.

    Can be summed up in one word: style.

    The sweet script, crisp direction and a delightful performance by Leila Hatami, as the sad-eyed wife, should put Deserted Station on your must-see list.

    Meant to evoke filmmaking of a bygone era, but this time the director is more restrained visually, while making use of a more conventionally structured script than usual. And he has a real, honest-to-goodness star in Rossellini.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Thoughtful and entertaining documentary.
    • 77 Metascore

    One of the most original and stylish films to come along this year.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Plot and dialogue take a back seat to a series of inventive sight gags that unspool with effortless charm. An ensemble cast of talented amateurs is in top form.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Working from a well-thought-out script co-written by director Stéphane Brizé, the two stars deliver impressive, understated performances.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Perfectly captures the cultural and emotional wasteland that is suburban Jersey.

    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.

    Or
    Like mother, like daughter best sums up Or (My Treasure), a raw drama.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    An achingly beautiful look at the most tragic victims of the longtime war in Chechnya: children.

    Censors in Iran must have been smoking weed when they approved I'm Taraneh, 15, a sympathetic portrait of an unwed mother.

    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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    An acid trip of a movie about a piece of Los Angeles history that exists no more: the Ambassador Hotel.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    Low-budget triumph.
    • 78 Metascore

    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.

    After winning raves at last year's New York Film Festival, Pablo Larrain's Tony Manero, from Chile, is receiving a run here.

    Denis -- who has called the film a tribute to the great Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu -- keeps dialogue to a minimum as she delicately examines how immigration is changing the face of France.

    The Good, the Bad, the Weird may owe a lot to other films, but it is always fresh and never boring.

    Wild Grass is a French movie for people afraid of French movies.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    A twisty, spectacular farce.
    • 82 Metascore

    Balibar's dreamy voice (I'm reminded of Billie Holiday) is complemented by Costa's hypnotic camera work. The result is a visual and aural delight.
    • 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
    Literate and engrossing, with excellent performances.
    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 V.A. Musetto
    There are superb performances by Iranian-Canadian Nikohl Boosheri as Atafeh, the more rebellious of the two women, and French-born Sarah Kazemy as the less-privileged Shireen.
    • 86 Metascore

    With Japan facing a new nuclear crisis, this beautifully composed and acted heart-wrencher -- couldn't be more timely.
