    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.

    A charming and moving film about a slightly racy subculture in a highly rule-bound society.

    It's compassionate but unblinking.
    • 68 Metascore

    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.

    The comedy-drama is worth seeing for Christie's performance as a former B-actress married to a philandering handyman. She radiates a mature sexuality that's a rare treat on screen these days, and when the camera strays from her, you want to reach over and turn it back.

    Intriguing and educational. For partisans of Bertolt Brecht, it's mandatory.

    In the title role, Kikuchi is impressive, easily handling Kumiko’s comic and more somber sides and never allowing us to settle into a single or simple interpretation of the character.

    The film is far from perfect but has enough going on to compensate for its excessive length and some sentimentality.

    With his caustic humor, director de la Iglesia is being billed as "the next Almodovar."

    Taking a stand would have made the film stronger, and might even have been helpful to young Pug and his peers.

    At first, the technique seems gimmicky, but finally it's as compelling a perspective as any to understand how these men passed through agony to some sort of peace.

    By the end you can't help but wonder whether it was a good idea to keep the youngsters under camera scrutiny for more than 12 years.

    Among the film's more intriguing revelations is the key role California's almond crop plays in the nation's bee industry.

    Questions of politics and policy, even urgent ones, seem pretty dry after watching Henry and the other elderly patients come to life. Those scenes are a revelation.

    That the movie largely sidesteps partisan politics will no doubt irk some viewers, but may just be its greatest strength.

    The scale is small, but Jellyfish has deep currents.

    An intense and affecting report on the experiences of U.S. troops in one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan.

    Exhilarating for Lynch diehards.

    Ronin shows the mark of a veteran hand and is entertaining in fits and starts.

    There's some amusement in watching Michael Cera play an unalloyed jerk, but in the main this trifling film shuffles by with a few low-key jokes and observations, building to an abrupt moment of seriousness.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A droll, deadpan film, deliberately paced and told.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Something of an elegy to modernism.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This documentary about men and women performing brutal work tasks for next to no money is full of arresting and eloquent images. It has little dialogue, and little is needed.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Not up to Ozon's standards.
    • 66 Metascore

    A compelling documentary.

    His affable, regular-guy shtick works well here, and he scatters the movie with such gleeful ads for his sponsors' products that, if his documentary work ever dries up, his next career choice is obvious.
