    Makes a convincing argument that the decades-old Cuban blockade has outlived its usefulness.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The longer director Jan Hrebejk's film goes on, the more complex the relationships become, until the film becomes little more than a talkathon.

    If animal slaughter makes you queasy, this movie isn't for you. Along with several cockfights, there's a long scene in which a pig is butchered. The folks at PETA would be most unhappy. People don't fare much better than the animals, with blood flowing in a seemingly unending barrage of violence.

    Levy's innovative movie should appeal to mumblecore fans while perplexing mainstream audiences.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Fails as a detective story, but it does offer an entertaining look at the punk scene in the 1970s.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    This new movie features stylishly filmed and choreographed battles. But in between the set pieces is a lot of sentimental blather that slows down the film. More action, less talk should be the order of the day, but it isn't.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Only marginally interesting.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Despite its stomach-turning images (and maybe because of), it is a daring, provocative work by a talented helmer who gets off pushing the envelope. He should be supported, no matter how outlandish he gets.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Fails to deliver the dramatic punch.

    Takita could easily trim 30 minutes of flab and oceans of tears from Departures. It still wouldn't merit an Oscar, but it would be a lot more watchable.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A melodramatic import from Algeria, is so relevant in this age of global terrorism, it's a shame it isn't much better.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Best advice: Wait for Two Men Went to War to go to the small screen.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel have great chemistry together as the lovers, and the scenes of their lovemaking and frequent battles bring the movie to life. Outside of those moments, however, the film is too stagey, talky - and long - for its own good.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    It's mindless entertainment, so take it or leave it.
    • 62 Metascore

    At more than two hours, Cherry Blossoms could do with some pruning. And do husband and wife have to have rhyming names?
    • 82 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Algenis Perez Soto was a baseball player in real life, which helps to explain his sensitive, understated performance as Sugar. But he's let down by a manipulative script recycled from dozens of sports and immigrant movies. At least it dispenses with a Hollywood ending.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The siblings react with humor and horror to what they discover. So will many viewers of this self-indulgent but engaging work.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Sexploitation and art blend uneasily in Crazy Horse.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Technically competent. What it needs is an original script.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The contrived script lacks subtlety, rendering most characters as stereotypes.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Can't decide if it's a martial-arts thriller or a sappy soap opera.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Gets off to a worthy start, but falls apart about halfway through.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Mawkish and manipulative, the film isn't worthy of its widely praised German director.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Unpretentious, TV-style documentary.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The script falls victim to the stereotypes and clichés so often found in movies about Asian-American families. Still, Lee shows talent, although it might take a feature or two before she finds her own voice.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Nunez gets nice performances from his cast, but his narrative is cluttered.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Strictly generic, it does little more than regurgitate the J-horror hits "Ringu" and "Ju-on."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Never rises above the level of a soap opera, although the steamy sex and Lo's abundant nudity might make it worthwhile for some viewers.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The premise has potential, but there's no follow- through. And there's no actual zombie mayhem; we learn everything secondhand -- from phone calls to the station.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Despite the title, there is no nudity in the Chinese rom-com Love in the Buff, although there is a lot of risqué language.
