    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.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A droll, deadpan film, deliberately paced and told.

    Something of an elegy to modernism.

    You can't help cheering for Selena, but the good feeling is diminished by the sense that her story's been simplified and sanitized.

    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.

    Not up to Ozon's standards.

    The Trip to Spain, perhaps isn’t quite up to the series’ opener (“The Trip,” 2010), it’s certainly a healthy cut above the second film (“The Trip to Italy,” 2014).

    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.

    It’s a lot of ground to cover, but if the movie fails to plumb the depth of Lear’s mystery, it succeeds in being an entertaining look at an influential figure.

    There are odd comic moments, but this is a bleak, nighttime, nightmare world, where the couple seem to have about the same chance at a happy outcome as the accident victims.

    It's full of visual flash, and can be enjoyed as a giddy ride, but you would waste your time trying to puzzle out the nuances of the story.

    Overall, this is a nice introduction to an amiably dour tunesmith who once wrote that "all art aspires to the condition of Top 40 bubblegum pop."

    A dead woman tells her own harrowing story in the documentary God Knows Where I Am. It’s the kind of movie you need to be prepared for — its most intense moments have echoes of tragic literature.

    Brower's legacy, however, is beyond question. Historian Starr calls him "an American hero," and though Brower was a prickly sort and a zealot, that judgment sounds right.

    A doleful melodrama. There are some intense, moving sequences, but too much emotional badgering and a general shortage of finesse.

    If you want lots of Will Smith and industrial-strength special effects, the movie delivers.

    The tales are worthwhile, but it's challenging to find a common thread among them that goes beyond vague generalities.

    Depressing. So is director Marshall Curry's avowal in the press notes that the film will leave viewers with "a more nuanced view of the world."

    An edifying and forthright drama that aims to create a lump in the throat, and succeeds.

    The film finally seems to stagger under the weight of its own significance.

    A fast-moving Congolese crime thriller loaded with graphic sex and violence - basically an exploitation picture. But it's hard to surrender to the gritty flow because the story is stitched together from such crushingly familiar bits.

    For those willing to overlook its few slips into heavy-handedness, Corpo Celeste tells a compelling story of a 12-year-old girl thrust into a strange new world.
