    Director Anthony Fabian lets the story sell itself, and it does so partly on the strength of the lead performance by Sophie Okonedo.

    Quiet, moving and beautifully shot.

    Waste Land is a film about recycling, but it's far more intriguing than the average eco-documentary.

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

    Director Corneliu Porumboiu ("12:08 East to Bucharest"), with his deadpan style and probing intelligence, is someone to keep an eye on. Using a minimalist style, and possessing the courage to risk alienating his viewers, he has created a movie full of resonance.

    The character isn't just shtick, though. As Billy, Talen has staged many protests in Times Square and anti-shopping "interventions" at retailers, where the managers, to say nothing of the New York police, often have failed to see the humor - he's been arrested dozens of times.

    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.

    Suffice it to say that this is good family fare with plenty of decent gags (visual and otherwise), and it’s nicely acted by all the principals. In addition, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi and Jim Broadbent turn up in smaller but still lively roles.

    A heartfelt effort, if at times a bit heavy-handed.
    • 76 Metascore

    An austere rural landscape, festering hatred, class tensions, terse dialogue - these are common currency in indie movies these days. Shotgun Stories uses them all, but manages to stand out from the crowd.

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

    Mike Cahill's King of California reminds me of those '70s-era pictures beloved of the counterculture about appealing rebels who go down in flames of moral victory.

    Lévy gets expectedly strong work from the veteran Devos and outstanding performances from Sitruk and Dehbi.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Doesn't add up to much, but it's fast and funny and lets a bunch of top-drawer actors exercise their comic muscles.
    • 74 Metascore

    What stays with the viewer is a sense of a man unraveling from his own mistakes and weaknesses.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A droll, deadpan film, deliberately paced and told.
    • 76 Metascore

    Sound City is Grohl's first effort at filmmaking, and if it doesn't break any ground as a documentary, it's a heartfelt testament to a place he considers among the most hallowed halls of rock.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Truly a winter's tale.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A film that can be enjoyed by all ages and that insults no one's intelligence.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Will wring some laughs out of anyone but the most humor-impaired.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The movie saves most of its modest number of jolts for its last quarter or so, which makes them all the more intense. They stick in your craw - and be warned, they're not for the squeamish.

    Except for Patekar, the main actors are nonprofessionals, which works nicely here.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A lot of what takes place in Roadie feels overly familiar, and the film could have been a wallow in pathos except for the performances, especially that of Eldard.
    • 74 Metascore

    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.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Entertainment made well enough that you can overlook its absurdities.

    A potent social allegory told with humor and mystery.

    For a good, straight-ahead noirish crime thriller, you could do a lot worse than A Walk Among the Tombstones.
    • 81 Metascore

    The real acting laurels go to Klein, who is both an adult and a child - by turns smart and not so smart, brave and fearful, caring and full of disdain.
    • 80 Metascore

    Le Quattro Volte may sound like art-house tedium, but in fact it's a movie of grave beauty, serene pace and surprising humor.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Gripping.
