    Will wring some laughs out of anyone but the most humor-impaired.
    • 71 Metascore

    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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The film’s depiction of loss, isolation and reconciliation, and the rewards of friendship, grows more touching as the story builds to its highly emotional conclusion.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A potent social allegory told with humor and mystery.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    For a good, straight-ahead noirish crime thriller, you could do a lot worse than A Walk Among the Tombstones.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Fraulein works by an accumulation of details.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.
    • 76 Metascore

    Cunningham's work is about seeing and teaching us how to see, and that should be plenty for us.
    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Mesmerizing documentary.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    You need not be a believer to appreciate its humor and humanity.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A breezy account of a man whose obsession began early.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    In general the film is so impressive that we can't leave the theater without wanting more.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    My main quibble is that the ending is a bit softer than I might have hoped for, but don't let that dissuade you. Headhunters is a well-oiled, nasty machine.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Beguiling.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A loose, amiable documentary tracking several decades in the life of this most unusual farmer.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The ending is a disappointment, a perfunctory upbeat gesture.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The film is dazzling and bewildering in equal measure.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    An understated story of coping with emotional blows that offers a compelling portrait of a decent man.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The film may work best as a supplement to the underwhelming three-hour-plus extravaganza broadcast in February to celebrate “SNL’s” 40th anniversary.

    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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Much of what we see is revealing, but I was unable to quell an occasional sense that the dice were being loaded, that the subjects were being given just enough rope to hang themselves.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A giddy French comedy.
    • 49 Metascore

    The veteran Baker anchors the proceedings, and you would like to see more of her character.
