    The cryptic finale raises more questions than it solves. But She's One of Us is such a fine work that answers aren't necessary.

    Poetry, which rightfully won the best-screenplay prize at Cannes, never resorts to exploitation. Under Lee's guidence, it is a mature film for mature audiences.

    The result is an absorbing look at a country still struggling to adjust more than a decade after the fall of communism.

    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.

    Director/co-writer/cinematographer, Yam Laranas, still delivers a maximum of suspense and horror, working wonders with a small budget.

    Names of the other artists - such as Barry McGee, Ed Templeton, Margaret Kilgallen and Jo Jackson - won't necessarily ring a bell, but they all have interesting stories to tell in this pleasant film, which sings the praises of nonconformity.

    A technical and performance success. The chemistry between Sosa and Lujan heats up the screen as their lives spiral out of control.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    This isn't a story of Shakespearean proportions, but it's a sweet peg for this complex, carefully constructed gem.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Difficult but rewarding.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    One reason it rings true is because the script is based on Gaglia's real experiences.

    Ruscio's script is grim and darkly funny, but the big attraction is Wright's right-on performance. She's an actress waiting to be discovered.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The overwhelming silence is broken mainly by chanting and the ringing of the monastery bells. Call it life in the slow, slow, slow lane.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    With so much junk cluttering movie houses, it is a shame that it took two years for this sweet, intelligent drama to get a release before heading for DVD.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    The documentary does a superlative job of examining the half-century dispute over Chinese rule of mountainous Tibet.

    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Yvan Attal and Anne Consigny give understated but powerful performances as Graff and his wife, Françoise. Although a bit too long, Rapt makes for compelling viewing.

    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Makes for fascinating viewing.
    • New York Post
    • 42 Metascore

    Proves that you don't need a big budget to make a dynamite film.

    It's scary to see how one man can brainwash a gigantic nation, as Mao did.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Features crisp dialogue and understated humor, played out by an attractive young cast. Audiences bred on Hollywood romances might find the film too chatty and contemplative. To them I say: Get over it, kids!
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    Beautifully composed documentary.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto

    In her directorial debut, Venditti does her best to keep a distance between herself and her subjects. But you have to wonder how much of the Billy we see on-screen is affected by the presence of Venditti's camera.

    This movie belongs to its stars, who also wrote and produced. You can't say their acting is good or bad because they are not really acting. They're just being themselves, pubic hair and all.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    An outrageous horror flick.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 V.A. Musetto
    A wild ride that effortlessly combines devilish dark humor, slapstick comedy, extreme violence and bitter satire.
    • 82 Metascore

    Silva's script has the ring of truth, not surprising since he based it on real-life experiences. He even shot most of the scenes in his own family's house.

    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.

    Mozart's Sister had a much smaller budget than "Amadeus," but Féret makes good use of his resources, even getting to film in the splendid halls of Versailles. The cast is excellent, be they relatives of the director or not. And the music, though not by a Mozart, is beautiful.
