    Neatly, and often humorously, summarizes a very unhealthy situation.

    Adams does offer quite a turn: Portraying a version of Disney's Snow White, she owns the character, down to every warble and twirl.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The stories are harrowing, and because they are delivered by living, breathing witnesses, they move us in deep ways that the archival footage, for all its horror, cannot.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    An edifying and forthright drama that aims to create a lump in the throat, and succeeds.
    • 70 Metascore

    Well-made and modestly enjoyable.

    A potent drama from Yang Li, one of China's Sixth Generation filmmakers noted for the stark realism and documentary feeling of their work.

    Nothing groundbreaking, but there's an easy charm in the movie.

    A provocative character study and portrait of the times.

    The scale is small, but Jellyfish has deep currents.
    • 75 Metascore

    A liberating experience.

    A giddy French comedy.
    • 74 Metascore

    In general the film is so impressive that we can't leave the theater without wanting more.

    An enjoyable example of this extraordinary director's documentary work.

    Eventually comes into its own as a wacky commentary on the state of America in the fifth year of the Iraq war.

    Will probably pass muster with very young viewers, but their parents may grit their teeth at its saccharine quality.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Does about as good a job as any film could be expected to.

    Depending on your tolerance for talking Chihuahuas, this could make for a fun family night out.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Overall, it's a nice melding of sci-fi and a crime story.

    You can see this Danish offering as a sardonic update of familiar noir material, or simply as the story of the midlife crisis of a guy who wishes - or dreams, or dreads - that he's living out a grand drama. There are pleasures to be had either way.

    • 75 Walter Addiego
    It's no great shakes as a film, but its combination of mild comedy, slapstick, pathos, many photogenic canines and a positive message will make it irresistible to families.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Artful filmmaking of the old school.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Doesn't allow the story's considerable nostalgia and sentimentality to overwhelm it.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The story, based on a real incident, may be simplistic, but that's the nature of fables.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    The strangeness, humor and melancholy of aging are deftly explored in this film.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    A harrowing story about the will to survive amid the most brutal conditions imaginable.

    Bujalski has a serious talent for finding resonance in the mundane.

    The acting is good, particularly by Faour, who plays the naive, zaftig heroine as warm and appealing despite her troubles. It's also nice to see veteran Palestinian actress Hiam Abbass ("Lemon Tree"), who plays Muna's sister.

    No film could convey all the complexities of the case - what Crude does is air the plaintiffs' claims and show the lawyers at work.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Walter Addiego
    Something of an elegy to modernism.
