    It's the year's best movie sex.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    The movie they've assembled is in the vein of 1973's "Wattstax," but it's much more than a concert documentary. It's a jubilant, civic-minded lollapalooza.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A vicious horror flick with an actual beast and someone who just acts like one.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    It's one of the great movies on the vicissitudes of love, commitment, and attraction.

    It's a funny, fearless, suspenseful sex comedy that, in drawing on science and philosophy and art and death, risks accusations of pretentiousness. But, even in its romantic idealism, the movie proceeds according to recognizable rhythms of how some people live.

    This is an extraordinary artistic breakthrough from a Mexican director who was already fearlessly good to begin with.

    Jane Austen's novel has been rejiggered into a jaunty romantic comedy that leaves us as incandescently happy as its characters.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    It's so hypnotically breathtaking, you don't realize you're not breathing. By the final shot, you don't realize you're crying either, but there go the tears.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    This is a love letter from one auteur to another that doesn't feel like a term paper. Instead, Far From Heaven is an honest-to-God drama with resonance all its own.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A watchful, winding-down tragedy of a movie that delivers what it promises. As commentary, it's grim. As filmmaking, it's a powerfully disturbing odyssey through the Bucharest health care system.

    The movie is also more extraordinary than a mere scenic slideshow.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Maurice Bénichou does the most heartbreaking work in the movie, playing a friend of Georges's. It's a character and a performance I'll have a tough time getting out of my dreams.

    So phenomenal that Bill Murray can't even steal it. And he tries. So excellent that Murray's MTV progeny Tom Green can't sink it.

    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Takes one man, his children, their spouses and babies, his ex-wife, his girlfriend, her daughter, and his friends and turns it all into a masterpiece about the strange power of food - to heal, unite, exasperate.
    • 83 Metascore

    There's a seething moral core in Amores Perros that uses the canine savagery as an entre to human brutality.
    • 86 Metascore

    Who most of these exquisitely costumed people are I have no idea, but they brush past the camera in such rapids of jubilation it's a wonder they don't knock the thing over. I watched most of the film exhilarated, but depressed that I'm not a big Russophile.

    Turns into something like a screwball farce, an intimate, self-aware one.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    The worst thing about the first Quentin Tarantino picture in five years is that after 93 minutes of some of the most luscious violence and spellbinding storytelling you're likely to see this year, Kill Bill ends.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    With Election, Payne announces himself as one of the keenest purveyors of the scattered pieces that once was an American morality.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    This is a movie whose power comes from the alignment both of Mija's discovery with ours and of a tremendous writer and director with his star.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A masterpiece.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A milestone of eloquent understatement that captures the daily life of have-nots as few American movies have.
    • 84 Metascore

    By nearly every measure, Milk is a beautifully made, far less conventional movie biography than most.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Meanders around Holly Springs, Mississippi, with the fuzzy benevolence of a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Both a staggering realist thriller and a jeremiad.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Ferguson's film is a clear-sighted counterpoint to the former secretary of defense's impression. As the title suggests, it's a seemingly infinite mess.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    We're now far enough from that era that seeing it all again feels like a slap to the face in the same way that watching certain moments in the civil rights epic "Eyes on the Prize" chills your bones. This doesn't have that series' stately magnitude. It's smaller and crasser, but it's comparatively galvanic.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A deep, exhaustive, and moving piece of do-it-yourself detective work.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    It's that rare movie with a sense of timeliness that is eternal, and a protagonist whose soul-crushed angst, even at its most fatal, speaks to the little boy/girl lost in everyone.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    The atmosphere is hypo-stylized, vividly generic and worse than real, like a doomy Frederick Wiseman documentary.
