    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Turns into something like a screwball farce, an intimate, self-aware one.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Makes a term like neo-noir seem like a fatuous catch phrase.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    It's the year's best movie sex.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Meanders around Holly Springs, Mississippi, with the fuzzy benevolence of a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Gets diagnosably schizo.
    • 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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Ethereal.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Elegant.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A momentously, shockingly moving fit of shape-shifting by a filmmaker grown tired of the macabre.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    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.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Spellbinding.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    It's the film we leave most movie theaters wishing we'd seen instead.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    It's a glimmering hunk of fractured brilliance riddled with Orwellian paranoia encased in a production design seemingly pieced together from the shared dreams of Franz Kakfa and Salvador Dali, and shot from cruelly low angles.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    Part aerobics workout, part self-styled dreamscape, Sense is a hyperactive piece of performance art that begins as the stripped-down dress rehearsal of a garage band and builds into a mighty, exhausting spectacle that shakes as much ass as it kicks. [Review of re-release]
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Mike Leigh's great big, superbly performed homage to the creative process.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    It's the boys' most immediately gratifying movie: The goods are delivered in a hearse.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Funny and untouched by cynical, ironic bids to be taken seriously.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    If there's a granddaddy of breezy situationalism, it's probably Buñuel.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    A monumentally graceful union of two extremely dissimilar stars, one inspired cinematographer and an exceptionally patient, curious, independent-minded director.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Soberly, deeply effective.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    A movie too smart and too urgent to be categorically awful. Clinically insane may be another matter altogether.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    No-fat filmmaking aided by Berri's muscular formalism that, here, occasionally assumes the gritty focus of a taut, action thriller.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Segues from the merely quirky into the bizarrely unthinkable.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Staggering, gorgeously ambiguous.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    The least opaque of Antonioni's films, unburdened by stylishness and his imagistic inflammations.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    The first more-than-halfway-decent movie of a new millennium.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Go
    A triptych whirling on a Lazy Susan of revolving character perspectives.
