    Burton, who directed the film with animator Mike Johnson, has rarely been in brisker, friskier form.

    Nathaniel fares well with his father's fellow masters, although Frank Gehry seems evasive.

    It's the hypnotic long-form music video Smoke never got to make.

    In the absolutely moving new documentary Watermarks, seven women in their 80s return to the Vienna swimming pool of their youth.

    Anderson is the rare filmmaker who doesn't want to use the actress as an instrument or to exploit her independent-movie cachet. She has freed Moore to be what she hasn't been with many directors: credibly human.

    It's the boys' most immediately gratifying movie: The goods are delivered in a hearse.

    • 88 Wesley Morris
    A movingly acted, terrifically old-fashioned World War II picture rethought as a post-colonial rebuke.

    The decadence is obvious. But true to the Valentino prerogative, it's beautiful - sad, too: a dream life moving into the unknown.

    Bug
    Engrossingly manic version of Tracy Letts's great stage play.
    • 76 Metascore

    The majestic pageant of images - no sylvan landscape has been this indelibly, dimensionally alive - is inextricably welded to the multifold spiritual / ecological questions about the future that Miyazaki is contemplating.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Incisive, highly entertaining political farce.
    • 87 Metascore

    Has a power that doesn't announce itself until it's over: You leave not wanting to give up on life, just resentful of the world we live in.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    The least opaque of Antonioni's films, unburdened by stylishness and his imagistic inflammations.
    • San Francisco Examiner

    The movie has you from its nearly wordless opening sequence.
    • 51 Metascore

    The best movie Steven Seagal never made. Except that Statham, while just as marked for death, is harder to kill.

    Judy Irving's terrific documentary 'The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is ostensibly about birds, but only in the way that a game of Scrabble is about tiles.
    • 71 Metascore

    Beautiful, wandering little love story that wants to break your heart and probably will.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Eerily tragic and chillingly hard to come to terms with.

    It infuriated me. It broke my heart. It convinced me that Caro, who's from New Zealand, is a strong, clear-voiced filmmaker

    If their movie doesn't float your boat as a work of science-fiction, action, philosophy, heliocentrism, or staggering visual spectacle (although, it really should), then it certainly succeeds as a parable for cinematic ambition.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Really the film is a deft first-person character study with a war zone for a background.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    This is a film of our times - paranoid, heartbroken, disillusioned - and the rare recent American movie whose characters react the way actual people might.
    • 83 Metascore

    Wiseman has made several films about both disability and dance, but this new one might be his most hypnotic, rhythmically assembled observation of corporeal expression.
    • 84 Metascore

    The movie observes the general misery of needing serious medical treatment and the particular awfulness of needing medical treatment you can't pay for.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    This is the epidemic from love's point of view, a story as much about how the disease can ravage the heart as it does the body. It is also Téchiné's best film since 1998's superb "Alice et Martin," and 1994's even better "Wild Reeds."

    The triptych is a device but never a gimmick: three windows into one fractured soul.
    • 76 Metascore

    Enormously enjoyable.

    Revanche was a foreign-language Oscar nominee this year, and it's a better movie than most of the films in the main race. The word "revanche" means "revenge" in German, but "waiting" would have been just as good.

    In The Hurt Locker, the thrill is unexpectedly contagious. You don't realize how riveted you are until you're back on American soil observing James in civilian life.

    Moore's roving essay feels even more urgent now than it did when the jury had to make up an award to honor it at the Cannes film festival in May.
