    Like “Basic Instinct”, it’s a sexually charged thriller centering around a cop and a sex-mad and slightly perplexing woman.

    People like Amy Grappell should be highly honored for showing those parts of the world that we do not know, despite news networks insisting otherwise.

    It is compellingly enervating and a marvel in the filmmaking process.
  1. A straight-ahead exercise in brutality.

    John C. McGinley carries the majority of the film's emotional weight, as he's the guy with the most to lose (and seemingly the most Hell-bent on losing), and his performance is easily one of the best of his career.
  2. Scorcese has made one of his best and most personal films...Kundun is also mercifully free of white teachers or saviors, such as, oh, say, Brad Pitt?

    An important heads-up to what is going on in our country right now in the name of national security, and a brilliant statement on artistic freedom and the dangers it faces. This film should be seen, should be discussed and is an important document on our times.

    Wise and respectful of its audience, "Cloudy" thus never stops the fun.
  3. Gleaming like a well-polished magic lamp on a vibrant Persian rug, The Keeper: The Legend of Omar Khayyam showcases Arabian/Muslim culture at its best and brightest.

    A great film because of it's realism and the ability to show viewers a world that exists even today, but not everyone knows about.

    Benefits from a goofy yet incisive sense of humor and some extremely strong performances.

    An original, complex, and utterly gruesome revenge parable, and never portrays its characters as black and white. Considine handles his performance like a pro, and only adds to the pure skill behind it.

    It spends little time on exposition, instead quickly getting into the thrust of the movie. For a film like this, it’s advantageous, grabbing the audience almost immediately after the opening credits.

    The sequel is an uninterrupted 80-minute dialogue between two richly imagined and performed characters.
  4. As much fun as I had with this film, and many others will have with it for years to come, Citizen Toxie is definitely an acquired taste.
    • 74 Metascore

    Wonderfully effective, funny and yet horrific film.
  5. The camera lingers on the characters' minimal, but expressive actions, allowing the viewer to soak in their emotions rather than having them related to us through dialogue. In doing so, In Between Days is more of an experience than your average movie.
  6. An entertaining experience as the filmmakers focus on a few select boys who provide a wealth of charm as they struggle with their new surroundings.
  7. Tykwer makes of all this murder and madness a concoction of improbable beauty and rare artistry. "Perfume" is not just the finest film of his career but easily one of the past year's most accomplished.
  8. I find Soderbergh's Solaris an eminently more satisfying experience than Lem's. This is a film as elegantly directed as any by Kubrick, one which is superbly acted and brilliantly scored, as spellbinding a work of cinema as we're likely to see for some time.

    What really elevates Hannah Takes the Stairs is the truly outstanding performance by Greta Gerwig.
  9. So well is this film made, written and acted that you’d have to be a pretty big hard ass not to get pulled into the hilarious and even touching exploits of Alan and Tommy as their lives take the most unpredictable of turns. Try it, you’ll like it!

    The interaction between Hoffman and Linney makes following their characters from their winter of hard experience to a spring of renewed hope well worth the while.
  10. Noonan's life is one few of us can comprehend, and Mac Intyre's documentary, A Very British Gangster, is like a Guy Ritchie film come to life, only with a better dressed cast.

    Her skills and personality were more polished than most contemporary leaders, and if she were running for office today, unshackled by societal prejudice that existed in her era, she would be a force to be reckoned with.
  11. Check out The Life of Reilly, for a real-life example of carpe diem energy too pure and unrefined to be silenced by discrimination or negative family vibes.

    Beautiful Losers challenges and appreciates, is worthy and worthless; a piece of art in itself.

    Grace crosses our taboo lines over and over again. As we are under the general (mis)conception that babies are a blessing sent from God, Grace violates all that is good and natural in the world. And that’s why it’s so awesome.

    Every bit enjoyable as that famed mockumentary.
