    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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A loose, amiable documentary tracking several decades in the life of this most unusual farmer.
    • 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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It's an intriguing portrait, but it makes no pretense at objectivity, erring on the side of hero worship.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    There's an Impressionistic feeling to all this, and sometimes it plays like a travelogue -- Bush is trying to do an awful lot at once. But the material is so compelling that we keep watching.
    • 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
    The film is dazzling and bewildering in equal measure.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A moving but flawed premiere feature.
    • 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.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A heartfelt effort, if at times a bit heavy-handed.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    This documentary has no bells and whistles; Bill Haney, the director and co-writer (with Peter Rhodes), sticks to the facts.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.
    • 75 Metascore

    Adams does offer quite a turn: Portraying a version of Disney's Snow White, she owns the character, down to every warble and twirl.
