    The Strauses don't care about how to keep an audience. Their movie has no sense of suspense or dread - Skyline is an apocalypse movie that plods like one of Romero's zombies.

    Wiseman has made several films about both disability and dance, but this new one might be his most hypnotic, rhythmically assembled observation of corporeal expression.

    Gibney has too much information, too much material, and too many people to shape a mystery or a drama or even a farce out of it all. His movie has elements of all three without ever sustaining one.

    It's too much too-much. The audience I saw it with didn't seem to know whether to clap when it was over or start taking Lipitor.

    This native send-off is robotic enough to leave you eager to see what an artist might do with a reboot.

    What Conviction lacks in characterization (the people here are monochromes - bright ones, but monochromes nonetheless) it makes up for with personality.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The film is built to quaver and buckle along with its victims and martyrs. In an almost soulful way, it bespeaks the reality lingering when the final fantasy ends.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The resulting film is nobly ridiculous and ridiculously noble, doing everything in its power to subvert the dross it's fooling around with.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    A must-see.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Mediocre-TV-drama-load of formulas.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    Relentlessly bland.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 0 Wesley Morris
    A shamelessly dumb movie.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    The movie is as modestly unpretentious as David O. Russell's "Spanking the Monkey."
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Less like watching a movie than it is like being accosted by one.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The movie's not bad enough to be world-ending, merely clumsy.
    • 78 Metascore

    Her (Anderson) performance is a study in the difference between hubris and pride, remarkable for how unshowy but profoundly devastating it is.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    It's a resplendently basic, lovey- dovey and inside-out "King Lear."
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The film has a persuasive murkiness and one extended mythopoetic final sequence that's almost moving in its silence.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    This version is a well-meant but corny distillation -- a whole lot of bombast and phony exaltation in the name of entertaining enrichment.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Wesley Morris
    Disarmingly intelligent if scattered documentary.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A feat of droll, refractive, melodramatic self-portraiture.
    • 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.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    Neither epochal nor epic in its ludicrousness. It's just run-of-the-mill trash.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    If you want to watch a gaggle of pretty faux-neurotic people hang out and throw quips, you're probably better off watching "Friends."
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    A further, captivating extension of Oshima's marriage of the oblique and the erotic.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Wesley Morris
    There's a seething moral core in Amores Perros that uses the canine savagery as an entre to human brutality.
    • 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.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 0 Wesley Morris
    The movie can barely muster the bravery to be even "Dude, Where's My Car" stoopid.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Wesley Morris
    Brutally dumb canine comedy.
