    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Her (Anderson) performance is a study in the difference between hubris and pride, remarkable for how unshowy but profoundly devastating it is.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A further, captivating extension of Oshima's marriage of the oblique and the erotic.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    There's a seething moral core in Amores Perros that uses the canine savagery as an entre to human brutality.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A vicious horror flick with an actual beast and someone who just acts like one.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The film is built to quaver and buckle along with its victims and martyrs. In an almost soulful way, it bespeaks the reality lingering when the final fantasy ends.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The resulting film is nobly ridiculous and ridiculously noble, doing everything in its power to subvert the dross it's fooling around with.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A must-see.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie is as modestly unpretentious as David O. Russell's "Spanking the Monkey."
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's a resplendently basic, lovey- dovey and inside-out "King Lear."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Disarmingly intelligent if scattered documentary.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's a startling, speedy, gracefully executed indictment.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    This is a film about small victories, huge defeats and finding the will to keep fighting.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Renders the juicy bits of the artist's life in two hours of pulsing highlights that suggest a man who never really had any emotional or psychic downtime.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Plays like a holy, erotic mood piece, steeped in so much subdued jungle fever that it practically runs on photosynthesis.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The director has concocted a tragedy that actually feels tragic.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Even when the movie is bad -- it's addictively so.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    At its most compulsive, this is the only action flick you'll need this summer.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    In addition to being his filthiest, this is his most free-associative movie. In spite of and because of its homemade look, it's also his funniest.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's fun, it's kind of somber and it succeeds in making you think about how you might be squandering middle age.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The emphasis here is less on cuteness and romance and more on the "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-style adventure.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 63 Wesley Morris
    The film feels like bare- bones docu-fiction, though, resisting the attendant drama until the bitter, grisly end.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Mediocre-TV-drama-load of formulas.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Less like watching a movie than it is like being accosted by one.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The movie's not bad enough to be world-ending, merely clumsy.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The film has a persuasive murkiness and one extended mythopoetic final sequence that's almost moving in its silence.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A feat of droll, refractive, melodramatic self-portraiture.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    If you want to watch a gaggle of pretty faux-neurotic people hang out and throw quips, you're probably better off watching "Friends."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Osmosis is really an occasion for the brothers to take their culture- debasing scatology to a PG crowd.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    What should have been 90 zippy minutes of jingling, giggling, winking fakery adds up to only about 20 minutes of fun.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    For a little while, comedy ensues.
