    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.

    It's the boys' most immediately gratifying movie: The goods are delivered in a hearse.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Imbued with infectious pluck. It's also a lucid, competent, titanically entertaining movie loaded with workable gags.

    Go
    A triptych whirling on a Lazy Susan of revolving character perspectives.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    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.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    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
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Mike Leigh's great big, superbly performed homage to the creative process.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Boys Don't Cry's intensity sneaks up on you like a snake.
    • 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
    A work of strangely bold, distinctly American pop art - proud to be ashamed, ashamed to be proud, unafraid to ignore its commercial bearings.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Like laughing into a mirror for 113 minutes.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Almodovar imbues his Harlequin-novel-meets-Marvel-comic-book melodramas with something more than a wink and a smile, and it's beguiling.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    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.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    More often than not the film casts an infectious, evocative spell.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    It's the rawest, most hot-blooded, provocatively audacious, dangerous movie to come of out Hollywood this year.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    Blair Witch forgoes a literal boogeyman in favor of the unseen, which, in this case, is as scarily bone-chilling as anything they could show you.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    It's a gas, dude!
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Wesley Morris
    A document of vexing (and vexed) immediacy.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    As formulaic, but occasionally outré multiplex-bound behemoths go, Gladiator is a foaming beast.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    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
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The finest element in de la Pena's carefully assembled account is how she doesn't simply state the obvious, but lets the meaty facts speak for themselves.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Revelatory.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Fancher's placid, eerily subdued first directorial feature.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    In 80 minutes, the film accumulates a staggering gravity.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Broadway-sized performances.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The ballad as it turns out is a duet between a dad and his girl, who'd often rather accentuate the positive than exploit pain, quietly proving that she is her father's daughter.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Hot-blooded.

    There's enough sexual manic depression to justify house calls from Dr. Laura.
