    Make no mistake: Casuistry isn't easy to watch. Cat lovers might be especially turned off. But Asher had every right to make it, and you have every right to see it.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Kim's wittiest effort to date, with a wordless performance by Jae Hee that recalls Keaton and Chaplin.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The Holy Girl ends without resolution, but one isn't needed in this mature, thoughtful drama.

    Director Susanne Bier is helped by a well-chosen cast, especially the glowing Nielsen, a Danish-born actress best known for American films like "Gladiator."

    Breezy and informative. It offers a view of the talented, opinionated man that only his son could pull off.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    It doesn't measure up to Schlondorff's 1979 Oscar winner, "The Tin Drum," but it's compelling nevertheless.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Eleonore Faucher, first-time director (and co-writer) of the French charmer Sequins, is well aware of Neymark's allure and sees to it that the young woman is seldom out of the frame.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A fluffy and fun coming-of-age-in-Rome comedy, with a sparkling turn by its 16-year-old star, Alice Teghil.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Isn't always easy to watch, but Bojanov's film is so compelling you just can't turn away.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The three are appealing characters, and you can't help but root for them in their quest, which gives a whole new meaning to the term "family values."

    Call it a spiritual Woodstock.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto

    Far from earthshaking, but it's fun while it lasts.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Weisberg is nonjudgmental, allowing his subjects to deliver the message that, for far too many people, the American dream is more of a nightmare.
    • 60 Metascore

    As we learn, delightfully so, in Jeffrey Fox Jacobs' documentary A Sidewalk Astronomer, the Peking-born Dobson promotes the building and use of small, inexpensive telescopes to study the wonders of the sky.

    The subject is touchy, but Gund handles it with taste and compassion.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    You can sympathize with both sides in their ideological battle, which ends in a most unexpected way.

    By the time the closing credits roll, you'll be ready to run out and hug a tree.
    • 50 Metascore

    The star of the movie is Caeli Veronica Smith, 12, an accomplished violinist who frequently performs in the park. Seeing her play in person would be worth the bus trip to Philly.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A meditation on literature, love and remembrance that is able to find humor and hope in the dark days of the Cultural Revolution.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A labor of love, Young Rebels is essential viewing for anyone who wants to stay ahead of the hip-hop curve.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    There's nary a dull moment in the semi-autobiographical Secuestro Express (secuestro means kidnap), as Jakubowicz pleases the eyes with closeups, sped-up scenes, hand-held camerawork and other stylized tricks.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Has two especially memorable sequences: the eye-popping Mass Games and a visit by a group of schoolgirls to incredibly beautiful Mount Paekdu, which is revered by Koreans on both sides of the DMZ.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Pleasantly free of blood and guts, with Kurosawa using instead the mighty power of suggestion to give Pulse an invigorating aura of menace.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Cheung and Nick Nolte seem unlikely co-stars, but co-star they do in Clean, giving gritty performances under the direction of Frenchman Olivier Assayas.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    More than the story of a disillusioned old man, Lustre is a loving tribute to New York.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Savage yet spellbinding.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The 25-year-old filmmaker takes no sides himself. Wisely, he allows folks of all opinions to put their feet in their mouths all by themselves.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Writer-director Erik Van Looy keeps the action moving briskly. Danny Elsen's cinematography is stylish and the acting top-notch.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A work of drama, it's more realistic than any TV reality show.
