    The scariest revelation in Ratliff's film is that the Texas Hell House has proved so popular that it's being copied all over the country. Heaven help us!

    The narrative is fractured, David Lynch-style. Everything eventually makes sense -- sort of.
    • 61 Metascore

    If only "reality" TV was as realistic as Quitting.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    One of Miike's most violent and sadistic movies, filled with squirting blood, throat-slashing, limb-hacking and other forms of mutilation too gruesome to describe here.

    Ten
    Breezy, entertaining and enlightening.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A sensitive and subtle meditation on aging, loss and bereavement.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A devastating indictment of unbridled greed and materalism, made all the more relevant by the Enron and WorldCom scandals.

    Ali Zaoua doesn't have the fireworks that made "City of God," the story of Brazilian youth gangs, a crossover hit. But in its own, low-key way, Ali Zaoua is just as stirring.

    Think of it as the rantings of a grouchy old man (he's 71) who for half a century has resisted all efforts to dumb down his movies, insisting instead on making them HIS way and no other.

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. That about sums up the amazing story of Edith Hahn Beer, an Austrian Jew who survived the Holocaust by passing herself off as Aryan.

    Konchalovsky, best known here for "Runaway Train" (1985), takes on a difficult subject with a light mix of dark humor and pathos.

    It would be easy to mock or patronize them. Cinemania does neither. They seem quite satisfied with their lives, which is more than can be said for a lot of people with more conventional lifestyles.

    The newly found footage of Fellini and actor Marcello Mastroianni on the set of "La Dolce Vita" made me want to run out and see that wonderful film yet again.

    Eventually turns somber, with stark depiction of mass graves and suffering refugees. The final scene will break your heart.
    • 71 Metascore

    Director and co-writer Matteo Garrone infuses The Embalmer with a spooky eroticism. The film is dark, both in theme and visual composition.

    The real star of The Son isn't lead actor Olivier Gourmet. It's the back of his neck, which the camera obsessively focuses on throughout this difficult but rewarding Belgian drama.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A thinking man's buddy movie.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Awesome filmmaking. But it doesn't make for easy film-watching.
    • 67 Metascore

    The decade under discussion in this enjoyable documentary is the 1970s, a period that changed Hollywood forever.

    Even parents might find themselves having fun.
    • 70 Metascore

    Heartbreaking.

    Part political thriller, part National Geographic travelogue, Tom Peosay's documentary is a distressing look at China's 50-year repression of the people of Tibet.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The lazy story takes on a passion and urgency that peaks in an emotional finale.

    Who needs a big budget when you have a quirky script, an energetic cast and a soundtrack that features Union 13, the Blondes, Future Pigeon and Omega Man?

    The drivel they call "reality TV" pales in comparison with the gripping big-screen documentary Bus 174.
    • 58 Metascore

    There's not much new in this Filipino film by longtime director Gil M. Portes. But it's so endearing that only a grouch wouldn't be charmed.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    It's scary to see how one man can brainwash a gigantic nation, as Mao did.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Sister Helen don't take no bull.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Gripping and even-handed film.
