    Mesmerizing documentary.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A superior adventure film with a poetic heart.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This is the heart-rending true story of a man with a seemingly benign preoccupation that turned into something close to madness and brought him to a terrible end.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    With his caustic humor, director de la Iglesia is being billed as "the next Almodovar."
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This Belgian crime thriller makes compelling viewing out of a "you can't be serious" plotline.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Richly inventive.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    You need not be a believer to appreciate its humor and humanity.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Powerful and depressing.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Gripping.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This flawed drama about a self-destructive young actress and her reclusive novelist father has its rewards, mainly in some good performances.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This affecting documentary focuses on their 2004 production, a play whose themes of forgiveness and redemption certainly ought to have some resonance for the inmates.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A potent social allegory told with humor and mystery.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The film's simplicity and intensity are aided by the crisp black-and-white photography of Tariel Meliava. Director Babluani's greenness shows itself in the ending, which is weak, but the film nevertheless stays with you.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A sobering documentary.
    • 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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A film of stark and galling contrasts.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This is contemplative moviemaking, with its deliberate pace, often static scenes and emphasis on direct sound. The director keeps the dialogue pared to the bone.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It's tear-jerker material but ends up being quite touching, and it's a good choice for family viewing.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A well-made culture-shock documentary.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A powerful polemic leavened with moments of beauty and humor.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Some nice performances and modest laughs highlight this amiable British 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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.
    • 63 Metascore

    Outstanding in support roles are Alison Lohman, playing a friend of Jerry's, and John Carroll Lynch, playing a neighbor who befriends Jerry.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Exhilarating for Lynch diehards.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Neatly, and often humorously, summarizes a very unhealthy situation.
