  1. Levinson is so skillful at developing personalities, even among the story's would-be villains, that by the halfway point of the movie, every gesture and expression has unexpected depth and texture. The performances are across-the-board superb.

    Levinson is at the top of his game with Liberty Heights, his instincts acutely cinematic, his purpose clear.
  3. Demonstrates what writer-director Levinson does best: evoke the sights, smells and atmosphere of his youth with intelligence, humor and a keen sense of social perspective.

    Few mainstream films portray the religiousness or ethnicity of characters with such detail, warmth and humor as Liberty Heights.
  5. Has integrity, but the way he bends his tale to make a statement is overly deliberate.

    Levinson brings it all back home to Baltimore and delivers his funniest and most heartfelt film since "Diner."
  7. 40
    Told from too many perspectives, the narrative puts suspense above substance, and its social consciousness seems contrived.
