    No film could convey all the complexities of the case - what Crude does is air the plaintiffs' claims and show the lawyers at work.

    In short, a nice, predictable film unlikely to linger in the memory.

    An engaging documentary attempt to probe her mystery, and it offers some answers - she was secretive and stubborn, a hoarder of epic proportions who seems to have had fits of instability. She also wasn't always nice to her young charges.

    The quiet machinations of this Frenchman and commodities trader helped win the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and bring an end to South Africa’s apartheid system.

    the movie comes perilously close to implicitly justifying the killing that sparked the plot - a killing, by the way, that is close to senseless.

    It may not sound funny, but there's a bleakly comic air about the story, and a bit of surrealism, suggesting the most caustic side of the Coen brothers.

    It's impossible to listen to Francesca's parents, deadly serious about art as a higher calling, without feeling both saddened and disturbed.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The film's grungy, ultra-low-budget look, thanks to the Safdie's handheld camera, is just right for catching the crummy, hardscrabble, rat-infested milieu.

    With more than a hint of the magazine’s trademark insouciance, the film gives us a close look at how the selection process works and introduces us a to a handful of younger artists, as well as such stalwarts as George Booth and Roz Chast.

    A potent social allegory told with humor and mystery.

    This affecting documentary focuses on their 2004 production, a play whose themes of forgiveness and redemption certainly ought to have some resonance for the inmates.

    Some of the movie probably will mystify viewers not steeped in Middle Eastern history and culture, but a good deal of the humor can be appreciated by anybody.

    In general the film is so impressive that we can't leave the theater without wanting more.

    This nightmarish revenge drama from Korea is grueling, intense, cruel -- the very definition of extreme cinema.

    A harrowing story about the will to survive amid the most brutal conditions imaginable.

    Though the material might lend itself to heavy-handedness, director Ole Christian Madsen is steady, and he gets fine performances from the two leads and Stengade.

    The real joy here is the gorgeous nature cinematography.

    This easygoing movie fully captures the couple's charm and offers a unique look at the '60s and '70s New York art scene.

    Aronofky gets exactly what he needs from his top-notch cast. Lawrence is appealing and never allows herself to be reduced simply to a howling victim. Bardem, Harris and Pfeiffer are menacing in their own varying ways, with Bardem capable of turning on the charm at key times that makes us wonder if we haven’t misjudged him.

    A sobering documentary.

    The story, based on a real incident, may be simplistic, but that's the nature of fables.

    It's a testament to what happens when all the right ingredients come together. Wag the Dog is the best political satire in years.

    Though not flawless, this is a compelling study, in Dogme style, of a wounded young woman who spends her working life spying on others.

    The director takes an unpromising premise - the switched-at-birth plot - and gives us something that's touching and unexpected.

    This is a timeless, and nearly plotless, look at the day-to-day life of a nomadic Mongolian shepherding family. Yes, it moves deliberately, and impatient viewers will find it intolerably slow. But those who can get in track with its serene rhythm will be rewarded.

    This Belgian crime thriller makes compelling viewing out of a "you can't be serious" plotline.
    • 73 Metascore

    This film doesn't feel obliged to pick a winner or lob easy answers; it aims to observe, with humor and humanity, with penetration and without oversimplifying.

    This documentary has no bells and whistles; Bill Haney, the director and co-writer (with Peter Rhodes), sticks to the facts.
