    According to rumors swirling on the Internet, an English-language remake is already in the works, possibly directed by David Cronenberg.

    A pleasing alternative to the season's Oscar-baiting movies.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A creative mix of horror, noir and psychological thriller. At times the story defies logic, but viewers who can accept that will find themselves caught up in the film's intensity.

    The film falters only when it eavesdrops briefly on a passionate public discussion of rent control and gentrification. The moment is out of keeping with the carefree nature of the rest of the movie.

    Slovenian-born writer-teacher Slavoj Zizek, narrator of the movie "A Pervert's Guide to the Cinema," provides the most entertainment.

    There are no talking heads, but lots of singing heads and sexy dancing bodies, many of them belonging to stars in Spain. In total, there are more than a dozen performance pieces, all stylishly lensed.

    Carax, who hadn't made a movie since "Pola X" in 1999 comes off best.

    With so much junk cluttering movie houses, it is a shame that it took two years for this sweet, intelligent drama to get a release before heading for DVD.

    One of the oddest movies I've seen in a while - and that's a good thing.

    Although envisioned before the world economy went to hell, Tokyo Sonata is relevant to the mess we're in now.
    • 74 Metascore

    As usual with Majidi, the cinematography is super (best scene shows Karim, disguised as an ostrich, in pursuit of an escaped bird) and the acting is realistic and low-key.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Filled with affecting moments.

    With Treeless Mountain, Kim establishes herself as a first-class filmmaker.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    This is powerful filmmaking for discerning viewers.
    • 71 Metascore

    The final twist is completely unexpected.
    • 72 Metascore

    That rare commodity: a film with only good things to say about public schools.
    • 61 Metascore

    Wirkola keeps the narrative taut, wasting not a frame; and he throws in funny moments.
    • 78 Metascore

    The show works pretty much the same as "Idol" does, with Afghans voting by cellphone for their favorite performers. But this is Afghanistan, where the Taliban still has power, not America.

    A Woman in Berlin, which is based on an anonymously written memoir of the same name, serves also as a testimony to women who put men in their place.

    With Lake Tahoe, Mexican filmmaker Fernando Eimbcke proves himself adept at turning a blank screen into a work of art.

    As Mark Twain didn't say, reports of the death of mumblecore are greatly exaggerated. As proof, I offer Andrew Bujalski's wise and wondrous Beeswax.

    I cannot tell a lie. I derive great satisfaction watching John Malkovich act.
    • 71 Metascore

    Hilarious.

    The performances by neophite actresses Olympe Borval and Lizzie Brochere make the film special.

    Fives us behind-the-scene looks at Hirohito, the man and the ruler. The diminutive leader comes off sympathetically, as a man concerned with the welfare of his people.

    Camandule gives a strong performance as the lovesick guard, but Svarcas gets little chance to show her skills. There's minimal dialogue and camera movement -- but lots of charm.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The director-producer, Nicole Opper, has known Avery's Brooklyn family for years, which no doubt accounts for the film's intimacy.

    Mother is yet another winner by Bong, one of Asia's most talented directors.
    • 76 Metascore

    The result is a finely plotted, stylishly photographed and brilliantly acted whodunit that clocks in at 2 1/2 hours but never seems long.

    Probably the most definitive portrait of Johnson that we are likely to get.
