    A fascinating front-row seat for what could be history's shortest-lived coup.

    Director Lisandro Alonso is content to leave much to viewers' imagination. That he is able to do so and still hold our attention is a tribute to his talent as a filmmaker and an authentic performance by nonprofessional actor Argentino Vargas as the ex-con.

    A nearly perfect love story/murder mystery that unfortunately falters at the end.

    Credit Sissako for entertainingly blending serious international issues with the daily comings and goings of village life. A bit more Glover wouldn't have hurt - but you can't have everything.

    Weekend is a gay riff on "Before Sunrise" (1995), in which a man (Ethan Hawke) and woman (Julie Delpy) meet and fall in love in one night, before going their separate ways in the morning for what could be forever.

    The highly stylized, often outrageously funny biopic is anchored by a devastating performance by Toni Servillo as Andreotti, brilliantly capturing the gnomic politician's trademark slouch and inexpressive face.

    Fish Tank is grim, to be sure, but it leaves us with a feeling of hopefulness.

    The result is an immensely enjoyable portrait of a strange-looking, non-comforming genius who loved women as much as designing masterpieces but was never able to commit to them. In other words: great architect, lousy family man.

    A remarkable 179-minute meditation on the nature of revolution.

    Guaranteed to leave you outraged at the way children - and, for that matter, adults - are exploited by mining companies.

    The documentary traces the fiery history of Ballets Russes -- which for a time consisted of two warring companies.

    Dennis refuses to push a political agenda down viewers' throats. But the message of his film -- a breathlessly paced look at the realities of war -- is clear: War and its aftermath are indeed hell.

    A youthful, and often funny, piece of filmmaking. You might never expect that its director is 73 years old.

    Jia's message is that globalization has failed to help the Chinese masses. We hear you, dude, but did you really need 143 minutes to get your point across?

    Ai is his country's most celebrated avant-garde artist - he's had shows around the world, including in New York, where he lived as a student - and China's most outspoken dissident.

    From the Hitchcockian opening credits to the final frame, Almodovar has Hitch on his mind.

    Andersson has a one-of-a-kind style that not all viewers will appreciate. His humor is not at all like Hollywood’s. His is leisurely and cerebral — two words never heard in La La Land.

    Encounters may lack the power of, say, the Herzog doc "Grizzly Man," because it has no bigger-than-life character at its nexus, but it does confirm the filmmaker as an iconoclastic master.

    Sensitive and sincere and has a talented ensemble cast.

    Anchored by the performance of Shu Qi, who has come a long way from her days as a nudie pin-up. She's a first-rate actress.

    Marker's documentary, shot on video, uses interviews, film clips and shots of Tarkovsky on the set to examine the Russian's work.

    No description can do justice to The Mill and the Cross, which must be seen to be fully appreciated.

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