    Through it all, Ozon supplies a sense of pathos that makes fun of its own soullessness, transforming a self-serious suicide note into an existential love letter.

    No-fat filmmaking aided by Berri's muscular formalism that, here, occasionally assumes the gritty focus of a taut, action thriller.

    Bernal, with his sweet man-boy looks, makes Padre Amaro's portrait of corruption all the more flabbergasting in its irony.

    Segues from the merely quirky into the bizarrely unthinkable.

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

    What Christlieb and Kijak do so well is keeping these folks from not seeming like loons.

    The movie is the product of his (Friedman) big, shiny love of forgotten soul legends whom superstardom (and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I might add) has eluded.

    If there's a granddaddy of breezy situationalism, it's probably Buñuel.

    Like so much Iranian cinema, Blackboards is a work of lyrical propaganda. But its metaphors are opaque enough to avoid didacticism, and the film succeeds as an emotionally accessible, almost mystical work.

    That commendable sense of balance, which Dolgin and Franco use to approach this family reunion, ultimately makes the finished product devastating.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    More a bleak docu-melodrama than an esoteric morality play.

    Nathaniel fares well with his father's fellow masters, although Frank Gehry seems evasive.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Staggering, gorgeously ambiguous.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    The first more-than-halfway-decent movie of a new millennium.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    The least opaque of Antonioni's films, unburdened by stylishness and his imagistic inflammations.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Hysterical-depressing, vividly sobering.
    • 87 Metascore

    The film's central drama is not between the former secretary and the filmmaker. It's between McNamara and history.

    If nothing else, The Filth and the Fury is a searing, forceful, entertainingly biased reminder only that the English group mattered - as musicians and as anti-social curs.

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

    It's the boys' most immediately gratifying movie: The goods are delivered in a hearse.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    The film is conducted in a delirious cinema-verite style; most of what you see has a brutal, you-are-there immediacy. You're not merely watching history, you're engulfed by it.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Imbued with infectious pluck. It's also a lucid, competent, titanically entertaining movie loaded with workable gags.

    Ultimately, Bingenheimer seems underwhelmed with himself. The people who know him say, in the movie, that he's a relic. Mayor of the Sunset Strip makes heartbreakingly clear what a glorious relic Bingenheimer is.

    Go
    A triptych whirling on a Lazy Susan of revolving character perspectives.

    Beautiful, wandering little love story that wants to break your heart and probably will.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    A knock-down, haywire ballad of the adrenalinization of love and despair.

    What an amazing presence Gorintin has. Never mind her hunched back and white hair, she's no crone. She makes Eka needy for happiness but susceptible to heartbreak. It's a great performance, full of both joy and the quiet, disappointing parts of being alive that come with knowing change is part of life.

    The shenanigans have been pared into 84 minutes of transgressive, potty-minded farce, that is often Waters at his most cheerful and most thematically focused.

    The amazing thing about the film, for anyone who hasn't had an intentional Hollywood scare lately, is that it still delivers on the most visceral level

    Mike Leigh's great big, superbly performed homage to the creative process.
