    Where a lesser movie from a lesser director might sink into its own ponderousness, Sokurov uses the ambiguity of the father and son's relationship to craft a sort of erotic puzzle.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The film elects a storytelling manner that's scarily similar to the beginning of a lot of hip-hop thrillers.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A patient, suspenseful exercise in genre craftsmanship
    • 65 Metascore

    The ideas are generous and inclusive rather than divisive: Zinn wants history to be seen and to be experienced from every possible perspective.
    • 31 Metascore

    The film is profane. But who knew police brutality could play as a laughing matter?
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's the videotaped equivalent of a primary research data dump. But to quote Bette Davis by way of Edward Albee: What a dump.

    In Robot Stories, technology hasn't colonized human life, it's finding ways to make living (and loving) better.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Hardship and suffering don't drive this movie so much as a romantic's gloss on the two.

    What Grind lacks in cinematic skill, it makes up for in heart, which is what most dudes-in-arms flicks are missing. Given the option of spending eternity with these gentlemen or the boys of ''American Pie,'' I'd choose the lads of Grind.

    Bobby marks a turning point for Colin Farrell, whose vulgarities and inelegance tend to get the better of his range.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It does manage to put a somewhat complex human face on the domestic troublemakers, if not their exploits.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    This is a smart piece of revisionist fluff that dares to question what happens after the royal honeymoon is over.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Demonstrates an idiosyncratic human touch. Kon is unafraid of the unseemly and unsightly. People are captured as they really might be.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Technically outstanding and the performances are strong.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The performances by Plotnick, Leupp, and Roberson comprise a jarring special effect.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Overnight is about all kinds of in-the-moment emotional rawness.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie's queer delight is contagious. You'll exit lip-synching.
    • 24 Metascore

    Armed with a dinner theater accent and hair that looks like an LP melted on his head, Turturro pockets the picture. As a demonstration of his newly accessed maturity and benevolence, Sandler helps him do it.
    • 54 Metascore

    It's also a message movie, about as weighty as Lara Flynn Boyle and twice as absurd. But I'd like to report that I had an excellent time.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Engrossing and provocative.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Spellbinding if ponderous.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Delivers chunks of ''Yellow Submarine'' and ''The Phantom Tollbooth'' -- a vividly timeless oddity suitable for many children and most stoners.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The first half of Moonlight Mile feels like the runaway trailer for a movie that can't wait to jerk your tears. But to quote Joe in a moment of epiphany, there's a ''truth enema'' out there, and, boy, it really brings this movie around.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Eastwood risks embarrassment flirting with material this naked in its mawkishness, then jumps right in. He seems to want the world to know: Inside the 72-year-old body of this icon of virility beats the heart of a Mexican woman.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    There's scarcely any dialogue, and the "hukkle" sound is universal enough to make subtitles unnecessary and to please an audience of any age and attention span.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Loaded with priceless encounters that would seem incongruous in any other movie but play here as low-comedy facts of some parts of black life.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Kennedy doesn't take the character any deeper than a caricature of rich, nonblack fans of hip-hop culture. But as a caricature, he's fantastic.

    Ben Stiller is like a guy on the 1919 White Sox. He's rigged to lose. His comedy is the stuff of failure, and sometimes it's pleasurable watching him flit around in funny get-ups, only to have a pretty costar put him down.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Gere is a pleasure, smiling and spinning and high-fiving his two classmates -- played by Bobby Cannavale and Omar Miller -- and the movie is happy and extremely likable.

    Assassination reminds you that Penn can be very funny.
