    A riveting documentary.

    They should hand out a score card with every ticket to The Witnesses to help viewers keep track of who's sleeping with whom.

    The real star of the movie is the delectable sushi itself. Viewers will be tempted to hop the next flight to Tokyo, but probably will have to settle for a Japanese eatery closer to home.

    A Hole in My Heart will disgust many (probably most) viewers as it cements Moodysson's reputation as one of today's most daring filmmakers.
    • 60 Metascore

    Kev Robertson's gritty camerawork and a musical soundtrack mixing hip-hop, punk and electronica add to the ambience of this impressive shoestring-budget indie.

    Nobody familiar with To will be surprised by the way he presents stylish violence in innovative and humorous ways.

    Director Lee Chang-dong could well have cut 30 minutes out of the story, but Jeon's performance is powerful enough to keep Secret Sunshine from drowning in an ocean of tears.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A scrumptious war movie.
    • 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.

    The best kid-friendly movie of the holiday season is Nénette, a portrait of an orangutan.

    It’s doubtful that Scorsese will redo this new Lau thriller, which is OK because the Chinese original is all fans need.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Never becomes maudlin. Rather, it retains an upbeat air of hope, and even humor, as two brave men battle fate.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    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.

    The plot of the gorgeous Mexican film Alamar -- a father-son vacation -- isn't what Hollywood calls "high concept." But thanks to director-cinematographer-editor Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio, the film might be called "high enjoyment."

    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.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The coincidences might be too much for some, but viewers who can get past them will be treated to a suspenseful, well-acted, crisply photographed character study.

    It's depressing as hell. While most of the seven say they want to beat the habit and become productive citizens, only one, Ron, follows through successfully.

    Judging by this passionate film, the medical community -- has no clue about what causes this awful malady and, worse, doesn't seem to care.
    • 54 Metascore

    The story won't win any prizes for coherence, but that doesn't much matter. As in most Hong Kong thrillers, it's the visuals - love those boldly choreographed shootouts! -- and moments of absurdity that count.

    As a one-time suburbanite now living happily in Manhattan, I can attest that Radiant City tells it like it is. The film ends with a surprise that you won't see coming and I won't spoil.

    Circo is more like "The Smallest Show on Earth" than "The Greatest Show on Earth," the 1952 Oscar winner, but it does provide a look at a unique family and a disappearing way of life.

    It's full of Plympton's trademark twisted humor, with lots of sex thrown in.

    On paper, these people may seem like boring statistics. But Andresevic, in her first feature-length film after years of producing commercials for the likes of Nike and Cadillac, turns them into humans viewers will take to heart.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Brace yourself for an explosively brutal finale.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Bluebeard revisits themes often found in Breillat's films -- sibling rivalry, pedophilia, gender conflict -- but it remains fresh and new.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A well-researched picture of how racism led to nine men being falsely accused and wrongly convicted. One only wishes that the filmmakers had more than 84 minutes in which to tell the story.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    You don't have to be stoned to watch Mr. Nice, but it might help to be in the same state of mind as its real-life anti-hero, drug kingpin Howard Marks.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A disturbing and daring thriller with an exceptional performance by 13-year-old Laurien Van den Broeck.
    • 57 Metascore

    Sylvarnes, who scripted, directed, edited and photographed this amazing first feature, makes spectacular use of digital video.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Viewers unfamiliar with the politics of the era might feel lost as the plot unfolds, and the 139-minute running time might be a bit much. But why quibble?
