    A fascinating front-row seat for what could be history's shortest-lived coup.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The fine cast, the elegant settings and the swoony title song somehow draw you in.

    Needless to say, In My Skin isn't for everybody. It's recommended to viewers who, like Esther, want to feel something, no matter how distasteful.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The sensitive subject matter is handled discreetly by writer-director Chin-yen Yee, who never lets the story sink into exploitation or finger-pointing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Unfolds leisurely, in anecdotal style, with deadpan humor and a sense of the absurd.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Be warned: Some of the afflictions are so disturbing, you might have to turn your eyes from the children. Susan Tom doesn't have that option. And 11 children are all the better for it.

    The script falters at the end, as the two reach the Turkish village where Ibrahim was raised. But the winning performances -- and killer '60s soundtrack -- save the day.

    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.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Sentimental and predictable? Sure, but The Butterfly is so well-meaning and the wide-eyed Bouanich is so sweet and lovable only a Scrooge would dare complain.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Hard-hitting and biting.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    There are family photos, interviews with colleagues, newsreels of early shows, a chat with his mother and vintage interviews with an unbelievably young and sexy YSL.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Ends in magnificent fashion, with skyscrapers bowing to Beethoven's Ninth. It's a stirring ending to a sweet movie.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A mix of documentary and fiction, it demystifies the profession in delightful fashion.
    • 66 Metascore

    If you ever wondered how robots make love, here's your chance to find out.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Seagulls is easy to take, insightful and darkly funny. The story sometimes seems forced and the characters stereotypical, but the engaging cast and surreal shots of the rugged landscape compensate.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Mylan and Shenk provide an engrossing look at these bright, clean-cut young men and the obstacles they faced in "the land of plenty." In doing so, the filmmakers also reveal a lot about the American character.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Gitai's characters are meant to represent the Israeli people as a whole. Just as they question their lives, the filmmaker questions 21st-century Israel.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A parable about greed. But don't let that serious-sounding description keep you away. It also is funny, knowing and immensely enjoyable.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    In the end, "Wilbur"' manages to look death square in the face and walk away laughing.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Kari successfully meshes comedy, ennui and tragedy, much in the manner of Jim Jarmusch and Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismaki.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The real star, however, is Michael Simmonds, whose manic black-and-white camerawork captures the unique vibrancy of New York City. He helps turn one woman's obsession into a valentine to Gotham.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The Outskirts, handsomely directed by Petr Lutsik, will grab people's emotions. The dark and bitter comedy deals with a corrupt, post-communist Russia.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    In the end, inner peace is found by all - on screen and in the audience.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Should please die-hard fans as well as viewers who have never heard the band and its anthem, "Kick Out the Jams."
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The stylish flick harkens back to the work of old masters like Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The intolerance and inflexibility that marked the Taliban's brutal rule takes a solid hit in this lovely import from Bangladesh.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    You'll have to look long and hard to find a performance as emotionally raw as that of Moon So-ri in the startling South Korean love story Oasis.
    • 77 Metascore

    More popular today than during his lifetime (his music even made it into a Volkswagen commercial), Drake once complained, "Everybody tells me I'm great, but I'm broke. Why?"
    • 75 Metascore

    Man's inhumanity to man is gruesomely detailed in S21: The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine.

    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.
