    The stuntwomen are also subject to the unbreakable law of Hollywood, that the advantage is always to the young and beautiful.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A well-made culture-shock documentary.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    An edifying and forthright drama that aims to create a lump in the throat, and succeeds.

    If you can live with its blemishes, The Lobster is a bracing experience.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Funny enough that it could make buddy pictures respectable again.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The filmmakers employ an offbeat and effective technique to get Landis to explain himself.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A potent drama from Yang Li, one of China's Sixth Generation filmmakers noted for the stark realism and documentary feeling of their work.

    Will probably pass muster with very young viewers, but their parents may grit their teeth at its saccharine quality.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    There's no objectivity in this film -- Greenwald's goal is not to offer balanced coverage but to roil the waters.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    There’s plenty here to tickle the kids, and that’s what counts.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    De Felitta has taken potentially overripe material and given it real heart.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Like in so many silents, the plot is joyously minimal.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The movie is anything but flawless. There are flourishes that seem plucked from Errol Morris' work but aren't as good, and some re-creations of past events are hokey. It's the film's content that packs a punch.

    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.

    Spinney owns the character, down to the last feather.

    While this final segment is the least satisfying, it’s impossible not to be impressed with what Ma accomplishes in the film’s brisk 80 minutes.

    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.
    • 61 Metascore

    A fly-on-the-wall look at the inner workings of the famed Spanish palace of avant-garde gastronomy that closed its doors in July. If you're passionate (and open-minded) about food, you'll be fascinated.

    Succeeds better than it ought to, largely because of the personality and prodigious talents of its director and star, the Italian comedian Roberto Benigni.
    • 67 Metascore

    That the movie largely sidesteps partisan politics will no doubt irk some viewers, but may just be its greatest strength.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The standard noir trappings are here: the femme fatale, double-crossing, fatalism, broken dreams, innocence betrayed and the rest of it. But Stone pushes it all so far and so relentlessly that it becomes absurdist comedy.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Though not flawless, this is a compelling study, in Dogme style, of a wounded young woman who spends her working life spying on others.
    • 82 Metascore

    The most compelling footage was taken during the uprising of August and September 2007, which put a bad scare into the government because a large number of Buddhist monks played a prominent role.

    From Juan Ruiz-Anchia's florid, eruptive photography to the pinpoint editing by Howard E. Smith that enhances it, everyone involved with The Corruptor understands that action is the bottom line - except Chow.

    While the film adopts a sometimes jaunty tone, the fact is that gerrymandering is bad news, assuming you believe that elections should mean something.
    • 57 Metascore

    The joy is in the details - from the animated credits to the perky pop score to the pre-"Mad Man" hair, clothes and general sensibility.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    What's unforeseen in Unforeseen, a superior documentary by Laura Dunn, are the consequences of a certain mind-set about mankind's relationship to the world and, finally, to itself.
    • 68 Metascore

    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.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It may be as emotionally exhausting for the viewer as for the participants.

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