    Directed and co-written by Thierry Binisti, a TV veteran, the film boasts solid acting (especially from red-haired Bonitzer) and handsome cinematography.

    The 34-year-old Meadows has assembled an effective cast, especially newcomer Thomas Turgoose as Shaun and veteran Stephen Graham as Combo.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Daniele Cipri's highly stylized lensing and Carlo Crivelli's bold score add to the movie's flamboyant aura. But then, the story of a bombastic dictator deserves a bombastic telling.

    There is much opportunity to turn the film into a soaper, but Hansen-Love resists.

    Sparse of plot, Iron Island is visually rich, thanks to cinematographer Reza Jalai. The final scene is especially stunning.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The narrative easily goes back and forth in time; despite its Oedipal subtext, it avoids exploitation. Stellar performances by Rottiers and Cattani help keep the movie on track.

    Doesn't always succeed -- the premise is hard to believe. Still, it's an unusual and interesting piece of filmmaking.

    Gronkjaer's cinematography is pleasing, with beautiful sunsets and tranquil snowscapes. I won't give away the ending, but it might bring a tear to your eye.

    What made Ludwig such a great musician? The documentary In Search of Beethoven, directed by Phil Grabsky, answers that question reasonably well.

    They take a mundane story and give it emotional resonance.

    The film is most effective when Geier, accompanied by a granddaughter, goes to Ukraine to speak at a school.

    The Last Circus features garish costumes, grotesque ultraviolence and plenty of other assorted weirdness. Although not everybody's glass of sangria, it has the making of a cult hit.
    • 63 Metascore

    Brings to mind "Working Girl" and "The Devil Wears Prada" -- but it has delightful differences only the French could conjure up, plus a musical soundtrack from jazz saxophone great Pharoah Sanders.

    A tad too long, "Tea" is nevertheless touching and funny, with charming performances. You might say it's as calming as a hot cup of green tea.

    Not exactly as well known as Megadeth or Metallica, Anvil did indeed have 15 minutes of fame back in the 1980s. Then it went into obscurity. Now it's back, trying like hell to be somebody.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A nearly perfect love story/murder mystery that unfortunately falters at the end.
    • 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.

    On paper, Ushpizin (Aramaic for "holy guests") looks like a hard sell. It works, however, thanks to a witty script and believable performances from real-life husband and wife.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A charming and enjoyable movie.

    If the documentary has a star, it's pony-tailed AES exec Piers Lewis, who had the impossible job of getting Georgians to actually pay for their electricity.

    Akerman uses simple long shots and beautiful composition to give the film a smooth, fluid look. She is assisted by understated but convincing acting, especially by Testud, who is also on New York screens in "Murderous Maids."

    The film did well at the local box office and has been shown at some 40 international festivals. Eat your heart out, Michael Moore.

    Seventy percent of black boys in Baltimore do not graduate from high school. They're more likely to land in jail -- or a cemetery. But there is hope, according to The Boys of Baraka, an uplifting documentary.

    A loving tribute to cinema by Tsai Ming-liang, one of Taiwan's most accomplished and popular directors.

    Wong extracts magnetic performances from his two stars, and Philippe Le Sourd delivers gorgeous cinematography.

    Solomonoff draws out vivid performances by Valeria Bertuccelli (Elena) and Ingrid Rubio (Natalia) that make up for the script's predictability.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    How can a movie with such a charming cast (let's not forget Ry Russo-Young as Hannah's female roommate) and believable dialogue (seemingly taken from the actors' real lives) go wrong? It can't.

    Magaly Solier is compelling as the teen. She has little to say, as the camera remains fixated on her expressionless face.
