    Though short on subtlety, A Walk on the Moon does offer the consolation of some decent performances.

    You need not be a believer to appreciate its humor and humanity.

    Neatly, and often humorously, summarizes a very unhealthy situation.

    A gentle comedy.

    There's a sense of genuineness throughout Girlfight.

    Bujalski has a serious talent for finding resonance in the mundane.

    Well-made and modestly enjoyable.

    It's an apocalyptic ghost story with some eerie images and a surprising turn toward the end, but it bogs down considerably between the good scenes.

    Aimed directly at your inner 8-year-old, and it strikes home.

    Does about as good a job as any film could be expected to.

    Boy
    The New Zealand feature Boy almost pulls off the trick of merging cartoonish humor and '80s pop culture with a story glancing at deeper family issues. The film has an appealing 11-year-old hero, but in the end feels half baked.

    If you stare at it too hard, In Another Country, an exercise in drollery from South Korea's Hong Sang-soo, simply evaporates. But if you take the film as the bauble it is, you'll be entertained by its lighthearted wit, social observations and resolute sidestepping of profundity.

    An unbearable exercise in provocation.
    • 69 Metascore

    A film of stark and galling contrasts.

    You can see this Danish offering as a sardonic update of familiar noir material, or simply as the story of the midlife crisis of a guy who wishes - or dreams, or dreads - that he's living out a grand drama. There are pleasures to be had either way.

    Some nice performances and modest laughs highlight this amiable British comedy.

    There seems to be a pretty good film lurking around inside Bullhead, which makes what we actually see on the screen all the more frustrating.

    The filmmakers employ an offbeat and effective technique to get Landis to explain himself.

    The film's subject, a whistle-blowing research scientist who played a key role in the fight to regulate tobacco, deserves to be celebrated.
    • 68 Metascore

    The film bolsters its case with plenty of facts, charts and expert testimony - evidence typical of this sort of advocacy documentary. But what makes the movie compelling is its focus on a handful of victims, who make the statistics painfully real.

    The documentary Watermark is close to the cinematic equivalent of a coffee-table book. It relies heavily on visuals and offers minimal context. The project has a pro-environment feeling, which comes across implicitly, not through browbeating or preaching.

    It could have been something substantial.

    Director Cordero manages the not-bad trick of generating suspense while keeping the overall tone cool and collected.

    Has compelling stretches, but the film's formal concerns overwhelm the storytelling.

    It's hard to decide what's worse about this feral clan residing in Brighton, England: their unspecified criminal enterprises, their penchant for bloody vengeance or their twisted family dynamic.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A charming and moving film about a slightly racy subculture in a highly rule-bound society.
    • 68 Metascore

    It's compassionate but unblinking.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Overall, it's a nice melding of sci-fi and a crime story.

    There's no objectivity in this film -- Greenwald's goal is not to offer balanced coverage but to roil the waters.

    Strel is one strange duck, and you can only wonder that Werner Herzog, with his fondness for captivating weirdos, didn't get to him first.
