    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Kim's wittiest effort to date, with a wordless performance by Jae Hee that recalls Keaton and Chaplin.

    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Director Susanne Bier is helped by a well-chosen cast, especially the glowing Nielsen, a Danish-born actress best known for American films like "Gladiator."

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Breezy and informative. It offers a view of the talented, opinionated man that only his son could pull off.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    It doesn't measure up to Schlondorff's 1979 Oscar winner, "The Tin Drum," but it's compelling nevertheless.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Eleonore Faucher, first-time director (and co-writer) of the French charmer Sequins, is well aware of Neymark's allure and sees to it that the young woman is seldom out of the frame.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A fluffy and fun coming-of-age-in-Rome comedy, with a sparkling turn by its 16-year-old star, Alice Teghil.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The three are appealing characters, and you can't help but root for them in their quest, which gives a whole new meaning to the term "family values."
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Call it a spiritual Woodstock.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Nicely acted and stylishly photographed.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Far from earthshaking, but it's fun while it lasts.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Weisberg is nonjudgmental, allowing his subjects to deliver the message that, for far too many people, the American dream is more of a nightmare.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    You can sympathize with both sides in their ideological battle, which ends in a most unexpected way.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    By the time the closing credits roll, you'll be ready to run out and hug a tree.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A meditation on literature, love and remembrance that is able to find humor and hope in the dark days of the Cultural Revolution.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    There's nary a dull moment in the semi-autobiographical Secuestro Express (secuestro means kidnap), as Jakubowicz pleases the eyes with closeups, sped-up scenes, hand-held camerawork and other stylized tricks.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Has two especially memorable sequences: the eye-popping Mass Games and a visit by a group of schoolgirls to incredibly beautiful Mount Paekdu, which is revered by Koreans on both sides of the DMZ.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Pleasantly free of blood and guts, with Kurosawa using instead the mighty power of suggestion to give Pulse an invigorating aura of menace.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Cheung and Nick Nolte seem unlikely co-stars, but co-star they do in Clean, giving gritty performances under the direction of Frenchman Olivier Assayas.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Savage yet spellbinding.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The 25-year-old filmmaker takes no sides himself. Wisely, he allows folks of all opinions to put their feet in their mouths all by themselves.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Writer-director Erik Van Looy keeps the action moving briskly. Danny Elsen's cinematography is stylish and the acting top-notch.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A work of drama, it's more realistic than any TV reality show.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Eggleston doesn't speak much, and when he does, it's usually a mutter, forcing Almereyda to use subtitles. Fortunately, Eggleston's photographs come across loud and clear.

    Call this a profile in courage.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Lewis, from the TV series "Band of Brothers," gives a super performance, but the revelation here is young Breslin, who was in Garry Marshall's "Raising Helen" and M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs."
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Enlightening documentary.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A satirical blast at America's gun culture. But it's so entertaining that even a die-hard NRA member might be impressed.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Gansel based the film on the memories of one of his grandfathers. The acting is believable; the photography, atmospheric; and the moral, unmistakable.

    Whether you're looking for a love story with a little gore or a horror movie with a little romance, Zombie Honeymoon will suit your taste.
