    Il Divo is showboat moviemaking, but the opulence is of a piece with the film's damning assessment of the durable Italian elder statesman Giulio Andreotti.

    Tokyo Sonata, in so many senses, is about an allergic reaction to the very idea of what it means to be Japanese. The characters misplace their belief in etiquette, politesse, dignity, and propriety - or they struggle to maintain it.

    It's been animated by the same company that made "Despicable Me,'' which is to say you don't know whether to watch The Lorax or lick it.

    The emphasis here is less on cuteness and romance and more on the "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-style adventure.

    The musician is candid about his own demons and gives the filmmakers access to his wife, two very different daughters, and, for a nicely done montage, his family photographs.

    A perversely enjoyable, occasionally harrowing adaptation of José Saramago's 1995 disaster allegory.

    Leconte's writing is tight and nimble, and while the tests of the duo's friendship are facile, under the circumstances, they make sense. The bond between Francois and Bruno approximates the real thing; Leconte seems to be arguing that you can grow a flower from fake soil.

    It's a startling, speedy, gracefully executed indictment.

    Expanded, Major Dundee is still a mess of great scenes sprinkled among some fairly monotonous action.
    • 36 Metascore

    This is a disarming and, in its own way, delightful vehicle for its star and executive producer, the comedian and actress Mo'Nique. Who could hate this movie?

    The Protector is about 84 minutes long, and only four of those minutes are devoted to plot.

    The title is Portuguese for "send a bullet" and the clever American tag line is "the rich steal from the poor; the poor steal the rich."
    • 71 Metascore

    Ripe, ferociously acted comic drama.
    • 73 Metascore

    It's intriguing. To be honest, though, there is less to it all than meets the eye.
    • 63 Metascore

    This is moviemaking that honors the craftsmanship of its subject.

    The film is actually a major artistic breakthrough for Araki, a onetime bad boy of independent filmmaking. Its psychological intelligence, attention to emotional currents, and humanity are surprises.
    • 68 Metascore

    As amusing as it is, the comedy here consists mostly of predictable potshots.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The film is often at odds with itself as a sincere work of romantic comedy, as Wilder's sometimes were, too. Nonetheless, it's determined to keep Clooney's considerable comedic skills front and center. He's never been looser, sexier, or more antic.

    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The director has concocted a tragedy that actually feels tragic.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie is always entertaining and frequently smart about the new ground one girl will break to humiliate another.

    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.

    Streep is in movie star mode, and she’s irresistible. But Baldwin achieves something not many men have been able to with Streep: You notice him.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Deceptively keen as both a paranoid political thriller and a caveat against the trustworthiness of your friends and neighbors.

    Into the Blue is as much a mesmerizing aquatic expedition as it is a reasonably suspenseful action adventure.

    What remains of the book's psychological underpinnings -- there are enough here to leave a permanent dent in the couch of any Freud-loving shrink

    At the heart of most of these encounters is talk about the nature of relationships -- cousins, twins, and peers. Mostly, though, Jarmusch displays an unexpected interest in the ironies and banalities of fame.

    • 75 Wesley Morris
    This is an easy movie to spoil. It's rather plotless. But things happen in precisely the way that life happens.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Spirited, madly educational docu-quickie.

    The film's insistence on the men's innocence is matter of fact. But it's also an urgent corrective to the suspicious eye the movies so often cast on Arabs and Islam.
    • 56 Metascore

    The movie is corny enough to remind you that boxing rings are square.
