    The tap-dance finale is a gem.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    So potent, it could change the mind of even the most staunch defender of capital punishment.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Cool graphics and music, combined with jittery camera work, keep the film's energy level high. Who knew Scrabble could be so exciting?
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    By the time the final shot arrives -- a rooftop panorama in the falling snow -- we don't know much about any of the people we've just encountered. But we have been treated to a feast for the eyes.

    Haneke's images are so bold and riveting and the characters' emotions are so raw that the lack of a few details doesn't matter.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Credit the disarming cast, especially Oshri Cohen as the boy and Arie Ellias as his eccentric grandfather. They help turn what could be a standard comedy into a life-affirming, enjoyable one.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A miracle of indie filmmaking. Shot for practically nothing by first-time director David Barker, it delivers more bang for its minimal bucks than many a Hollywood blockbuster does for its multimillions.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Breathtakingly filmed (lots of slow-motion) by Wang Yu, but then it would be difficult to go wrong when your star is one of the world's most beautiful women.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Brims with energy, carefully drawn characters and fine acting.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    There’s little dialogue in this gem of a movie, but little is needed. Aman’s anguished face – which recalls Maria Falconetti in “The Passion of Joan of Arc” -- conveys all the information we need.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    There's extreme brutality, gore and violence, scads of severed body parts and oceans of squirting blood, as the brave -- and buffed -- people of Bang Rajan fight to the death.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Enthralling performances are given by Tadanobu Asano (Miike's "Ichi the Killer") as Kenji and first-timer Sinitta Boonyasak as the pot-smoking Noi.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    It's full of passionate performances (except for the wooden Li), sizzling swordplay, bold and dazzling hues, and breathtaking landscapes.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A loving tribute to cinema by Tsai Ming-liang, one of Taiwan's most accomplished and popular directors.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Can be taken as a parable about cinema art vs. commerce. If that's too much to think about, just enjoy the off-beat humor.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Overflows with psychological intrigue, something often missing from such offerings.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Pegg and director/co-writer Edgar Wright mix numerous references to other zombie flicks with hilarious bits of their own. The best has Ed and Shaun deciding which LPs can be used as ammo.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A devilish updating of Verdi's "Rigoletto."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Sylvarnes, who scripted, directed, edited and photographed this amazing first feature, makes spectacular use of digital video.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The documentary takes no sides, but its bleak message is all too clear.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Has relevance in the world as we now know it.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The oft-told story of lust and deception isn't the reason to see Untold Scandal -- Rather, it's the look -- stunning costumes and art direction, lush landscapes, and beautifully framed and lighted sequences -- that make this worth seeking out.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A rousing indictment of a barbaric practice.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    It's a sweet and light-hearted endeavor that shows Breillat isn't a one-trick pony.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    See it - if you dare.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Shamelessly press viewers' emotional buttons. But the film is so well-made and the performances so accomplished that it doesn't matter.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Marchand capably builds suspense, thanks to a twisty script and nervy performances by Lucas and Quinton.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Like an early Almodovar movie transported to Moscow.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    It's a long way from the carefree days of "Breathless" and "Band of Outsiders," but then the world has changed since Godard made those movies 40 years ago.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Director-writer Roger Stigliano used a tiny budget to fashion an endearing screwball comedy that brings to mind Jonathan Demme's "Something Wild" (1986).
