    The film isn't about the actor's intelligence. It's about his emotional radiance.

    Even when the movie is bad -- it's addictively so.

    Carancho is a particularly jaw-dropping example of what this great, cunning city - on film, anyway - is capable of: an exhilarating bummer.

    This pop-up book of a film is an ideal arrangement between director and star.

    At its most compulsive, this is the only action flick you'll need this summer.

    An army of rolled abs and their owners give the state of American race relations a beginner's workout.

    It's a grand outdoor spectacle (the only real interiors are within tents, and those are hard to come by) and a perfectly juicy melodrama.

    Is it a romantic comedy? Is it a chick flick? This is silly, since, in truth, it's neither. It's simply a Julia Roberts movie, often a lovely one.

    The End of the Affair's masterfully heartbroken final scene is scarier in its nightmarishly wry suggestion of ill fate than anything that ever happened on Elm Street.

    Gere is a pleasure, smiling and spinning and high-fiving his two classmates -- played by Bobby Cannavale and Omar Miller -- and the movie is happy and extremely likable.
    • 49 Metascore

    The movie is actually a softer treatment of the similar sibling anguish in Sidney Lumet's "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead." Allen isn't enough of a great dark artist to pull off a full-scale tragedy the way Lumet does.
    • 71 Metascore

    Priceless enough to flush "Metro," "Dr. Dolittle" and "Holy Man" from memory.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    At heart, Sylvia is constructed as a psychological suspense film framed around the ambiguities of Hughes's infidelity and Plath's resulting paranoia. So at its strangest, the movie is a potboiler.

    The best parts of Flicka are its pinch-me optimism and its old-fashioned-movie flourishes.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    In addition to being his filthiest, this is his most free-associative movie. In spite of and because of its homemade look, it's also his funniest.
    • 67 Metascore

    One of Lee's unsung gifts as a filmmaker is his discovery of that place between eye-popping surrealism and wrenching Greek tragedy.
    • 57 Metascore

    On screen something happens that goes beyond Monk's powers of description and Fanning's way of seeming 14 and 44 at the same time.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A movie loaded with strange delights.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    At its core, QuinceaƱera, a modest but remarkably poignant comedy, is the story of a neighborhood.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    There is no plot in Pen-ek Ratanaruang's exceedingly mellow situation comedy, and that's preferred, frankly.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A featherweight parlor-room French farce in need of an anchor to keep it from being blown away by the summer blockbuster gales.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Dunst is the realest, rawest thing in the film.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A bonanza of pop uplift. It wraps the up-from-nothing drama of ''Flashdance'' in the sassy, interracial pep rallying of ''Bring It On'' and the military romance of ''An Officer and a Gentleman.''
    • 78 Metascore

    A sound piece of profiling that has miles of archival footage of the affable, pop-eyed Langlois enthusing.

    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.

    The cast helps enliven what could otherwise come off as a treatise. All four actors played these roles during the play's off-Broadway run.
    • 67 Metascore

    This stuff is clever, in the reflexively satirical, self-aware way that many animated films are. It's not until the dog is accidentally shipped off to New York City that the movie lets you in on an altogether more interesting idea: It doesn't want to be that cool.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie turns what could have been a tedious meta-movie exercise into a sincere dour farce.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The film Soderbergh's made is about promiscuous stargazing. And you don't need a brain for that, just two eyes and a mammoth appetite for heavenly bodies.
    • 86 Metascore

    Argo is absurdly suspenseful for both of its hours. I've never been this stressed-out watching people shred documents.
