    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A must-see.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie is as modestly unpretentious as David O. Russell's "Spanking the Monkey."
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's a resplendently basic, lovey- dovey and inside-out "King Lear."
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Disarmingly intelligent if scattered documentary.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's a startling, speedy, gracefully executed indictment.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    This is a film about small victories, huge defeats and finding the will to keep fighting.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Renders the juicy bits of the artist's life in two hours of pulsing highlights that suggest a man who never really had any emotional or psychic downtime.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Plays like a holy, erotic mood piece, steeped in so much subdued jungle fever that it practically runs on photosynthesis.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The director has concocted a tragedy that actually feels tragic.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Even when the movie is bad -- it's addictively so.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    At its most compulsive, this is the only action flick you'll need this summer.
    • 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.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's fun, it's kind of somber and it succeeds in making you think about how you might be squandering middle age.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The emphasis here is less on cuteness and romance and more on the "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-style adventure.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's the most liberated and alive [DeNiro]'s been since his deluded Rupert Pupkin tried to kidnap Jerry Lewis in "King of Comedy."
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Fancher's placid, eerily subdued first directorial feature.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    In Winona Ryder's case, Girl Interrupted is a showcase in which her brittle, angry portrait shows she has graduated from ingenue to actress.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A finely coiffed, cream-cheese "8 1/2" remix with Gere, a Marcello Mastroianni for Oprah Winfrey times.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Deceptively keen as both a paranoid political thriller and a caveat against the trustworthiness of your friends and neighbors.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Loose and funny with verve.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The deft, hilarious Notting Hill finds Grant's dour-droll-deprecating affliction at its most dead-on.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An army of rolled abs and their owners give the state of American race relations a beginner's workout.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Exists as a seldom represented American time capsule, and it's all good.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's a half-life better than Martin Lawrence treading similar, simpler water in "Big Momma's House."
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Dogma' is Kevin Smith's fourth film and it looks like his first but I'm not ready to quit him -- there's a landmark in him. I just wish the crafty, raucous Dogma was it.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Priceless enough to flush "Metro," "Dr. Dolittle" and "Holy Man" from memory.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    An alt-country paean to libidinal mothers and the little girls who clean up the mess.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    McTiernan's film mines what substance it has from its two stars, but is admittedly about keeping up its own appearances.
    • 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
