    There's little new in Armadillo.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Unpretentious, TV-style documentary.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Too bad it lacks a substantial story to go along with the kick-ass combat scenes.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Earthwork is best left to TV.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Too bad the script is predictable at every turn.

    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.

    If the plot of the Argentine soaper Puzzle seems familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to the story in the French movie "Queen To Play."
    • 70 Metascore

    While I have no argument with Leeson's political views, her presentation -- mostly a succession of talking heads -- is dry and uninspired. These women deserve better.

    Buck is best left to TV, where it will land soon. It's "The Horse Whisperer" that should be seen on the big screen.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    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.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Levy's innovative movie should appeal to mumblecore fans while perplexing mainstream audiences.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Ultimately breaks down under the weight of too many characters and unbelievable twists.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Potash's film tells an important and disturbing story, but his presentation is uninspired and non-cinematic. It's best left to TV.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The opening credits of Gangster's Paradise note that it was "inspired by real events." It would be more accurate to say that the film was inspired by Brian De Palma's "Scarface" and similar fare.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Hugh Jackman appears briefly as Sophia's Aussie boyfriend, and gets to perform a lively song-and-dance number. But for some strange reason, his name isn't in the credits.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A downer that too often resorts to melodrama.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Trouble is, the movie is only sporadically funny, and the concept soon grows tiresome. In fact, you could say that there's too much downtime in Autoerotic.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    It's a clever concept that should play well on TV and the Internet. But as a big-screen movie, Life in a Day -- which lists brothers Tony and Ridley Scott as producers -- elicits a shrug and a question: Who cares?
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    All this is loads of fun, but after a while sensory overload sets in, dulling the mind. Even in a kung-fu flick, more isn't always better.
    • 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.

    Tykwer exhibits a fondness for split screens and other eye candy but no interest in formalities like character and plot development. By the time we reach the kitchy final scene, we've had our fill of visual tricks.

    A protegé of Gus Van Sant, Archer -- who also makes short films and music videos -- has a wild imagination he has trouble harnessing. He doesn't know the meaning of "too much." But Barkin, in short, blond hair, is superb, as usual, and Aaron Platt's cinematography is stunning. Here's hoping Archer gets his s - - t together in feature No. 3.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Has a few things going for it -- a winning performance by Luchini and a small role by Pedro Almodóvar favorite Carmen Maura. But these talented folks can't compensate for a plot that strains credulity and lacks badly needed social bite. Wait for the DVD.

    Yearning for an exciting African adventure? Oka! isn't it.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Young Goethe looks great, and the cast is appealing. But the story is riddled with clichés and fabrications.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film opens with a disclaimer: "Although based on real events and people, this is a work of fiction." There should be another warning: Unless you're up to date on French politics, a lot of Googling is needed to follow the players.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The generic plot is redeemed by exciting action sequences, good-looking location photography and a hot sex scene involving a femme fatale named Lea (pixie-haired Melanie Thierry).
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The contrived script lacks subtlety, rendering most characters as stereotypes.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Vincent Bal's film should appeal to kids, cat lovers and felines. I give it two stars, and my cat, Audrey, gives it three meows.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    An interesting debut for director Pesce, although it isn't worth running out to see. Wait for it to hit the small screen.
