    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.

    Director Michelle Esrick, who followed Wavy around for 10 years, journeys from Manhattan to Woodstock to Nepal to the hills of California to tell Wavy's story. The journey is entertaining, whether you witnessed the 1960s firsthand or heard about it from your grandparents.

    You can't fault the film's elegant look. But you have to wonder why Shakhnazarov, one of Russian's most experienced filmmakers, didn't take more care with the script.

    There's not enough good material to fill the film's overlong 105 minutes. Is there an editor in the house?

    The film works best when we see N'Dour onstage. He has a great set of pipes and is nothing if not charismatic.

    Redmon makes a valid argument, but he belabors the point. Mardi Gras: Made in China would play better if it were more focused and less repetitive.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The documentary is much too conventional -- lots of boring talking heads, etc. -- to do the subject matter justice.

    There's nothing especially new or interesting about the guests, the party or the movie. One bright note is Nicol Zanzarella as the elegant Susan, a freelance TV editor and co-host.

    Not a definitive portrait of the designer, nor does it pretend to be. But it should be of interest to viewers even if there's not a single YSL label in their wardrobes.

    The result is entertaining but hardly memorable.

    That's all laudable - but Perry, a longtime filmmaker, should have given the doc more urgency and punch.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Campy and clichéd.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    At some two hours, the film is 30 minutes too long. Cutting out the melodrama and sticking with the daring-do is the answer.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The non-linear plot makes for confusion and, except for the inspired final shootout, the action sequences are mediocre.

    The screen comes alive only at the end, when a frightening tornado destroys the seaside village.

    Borba keeps referring to himself as "a hero," but the directors, Burt Sun and André Costantini, never delve into his psyche. On the plus side is Costantini's luscious cinematography.

    Pity that the direction and narrative lack passion. If there's anything a story of interracial adultery needs, it's passion.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Earnest but not terribly original.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    On the plus side, Derek McKane's moody camerawork makes Gotham look grand. Too bad it's wasted on The Last New Yorker.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    If you think you've seen Imaginary Heroes before, you're right -- only it was called "The Ice Storm," or maybe "Ordinary People."
    • 65 Metascore

    Has a sexy cast and is gorgeous to watch -- but it takes more than that to make a movie worth seeking out.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A beautiful but empty-headed documentary.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Green's odd little movie is clever -- too clever, as it turns out.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    LaBruce devotees will be tickled pink; others will be perplexed and/or disgusted.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    It's rather sweet and life-affirming, although the transformation from sophisticate to peasant happens too conveniently and quickly.
    • 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.

    The classical music is soothing, the cinematography handsome and the acting strong, but the Swedish coming-of-age saga Simon and the Oaks is burdened with a sappy, soap-opera-ish script.

    Direction of all three films is no more than workmanlike, which isn't surprising since they were originally made for British television. The acting, on the other hand, is sometimes superb.
    • 56 Metascore

    The result is anti-Army propaganda rather than a balanced piece of reporting.
    • 62 Metascore

    Strained and mildly amusing. The real reason to see the movie is the delightful performance by Sara Forestier, who rightly won the French version of the Oscar for her portrayal of the carefree Baya.
