    Brisseau obviously aims to shock - and he does. Now shocking is A-OK with me - but only if it's part of a something bigger. Exterminating Angels is beautifully lensed and acted, but it lacks substance.

    The result is entertaining but hardly memorable.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Sweet but not especially original.

    Too many cooks spoil the broth, and too many directors spoil the anthology film Paris Je T'aime.

    You have to wonder just how true to life the melodramatic depiction of these events is, especially since the film was made in partnership with TV's "Masterpiece Theater."

    Johnny Depp puts in a cameo declaring that "most Americans believe the clichés about Gypsies." Unfortunately, the well-intentioned film never gets beyond clichés itself.

    A sappy look at the title character, a 12-year-old boy who's a math and music prodigy.

    Albert elicits good performances from her cast, but she fails to give viewers reason to care about their characters.

    It pains me to report that his Zebraman is a disappointment.

    Make a movie about depressed people, and what do you get? A depressing movie.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Uninspired in style, and Joan Allen's narration is dry.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Delivers an important message, and its underwater photography is breathtaking. But Stewart lessens the impact by focusing much too much on himself. Did he really have to go into detail about his own health problems? This should be a movie about sharks, not Stewart.

    As a history lesson, Oswald's Ghost is valuable, but don't go expecting any new revelations.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Performances are up to par, but the story unfolds conventionally - it lacks the fragmented fury of its predecessor. You might call it "City of God Lite."
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The story is contrived. Would you believe a high-rise window-washer just happening to be cleaning the window of the room where, at that very moment, his wife is being raped by her boss? Didn't think so.

    Caramel, by the way, gets its name from a blend of sugar, lemon juice and water that is boiled until it turns into a paste used to remove unwanted hair in the Middle East.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    You can't quarrel with the lensing and acting, but the overabundance of coincidences keeps Vivere from reaching its full potential.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Claiming that from Korea to Vietnam to Iraq, the US government has misled the public - and the media - on the reasons for going to war.
    • 72 Metascore

    Priceless provides lightweight, predictable entertainment that will make you yearn for the Tatou of yesteryear.

    The biggest problem is Wong's decision to cast Norah Jones as Elizabeth, a New Yorker who hits the road after a love affair goes bad. Jones, in her first movie, can't act. (There, I said it!)
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Pity that the direction and narrative lack passion. If there's anything a story of interracial adultery needs, it's passion.
    • 75 Metascore

    Will Marcela (wonderful Ana Geislerova) opt for brains or brawn? The answer might surprise you.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    There is also a fair amount of boy-on-boy sex, which would be the main reason for seeing No Regret, no matter what your sexual orientation might be.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Gerren's story is fascinating, but Roberts dilutes it by going off on tangents about unsafe cosmetics and phony plastic surgeons. Both topics need exploring - just not here. There's more than enough drama in Gerren's life.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Good-natured, lightweight fun, although clichéd and more suited to DVD and cable than the big screen.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Matthews is supposed to be the star here, but it's Englund's hilarious, over-the-top performance that keeps Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, by director Jon Knautz, from becoming another forgettable exercise in horror.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Darkly funny (par for the course with Miike), visually stunning and full of references to other films.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The fractured timeline covers five decades, which Miller weaves together, with the past shot in color and the present in black and white. Still, the soapy climax is unnecessary.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Director-writer Seth Grossman provides a lazy narrative, with stereotypical characters and plot.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film is loving but shallow.
