    A totally mesmerizing battle of the wills between the occasionally charming yet wily Nixon and the increasingly desperate Frost.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Masterfully put together.

    Winslet deserves an Oscar for her amazing performance.
    • 70 Metascore

    Naturally, Pitt and Blanchett are outstanding. Fincher's meticulous attention to detail is unerring, down to the light fixtures.

    Rourke is getting tons of press and award nominations, but Marisa Tomei kicks ass too. Not only does the one-time Oscar winner look amazing and perform her own pole tricks, but she effectively humanizes what could be just another naked chick in a movie.

    This is a smart script. There is a wealth of twists, but none of them have to beat you over the head.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is a movie where you WANT to stick around for the credits. The beauty is that you are totally set up for it, and you don't mind one bit. That final sequence ties the movie together in an awesome fashion.

    Much like the actual summer (the season, not the character), we never wanted it to end.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is, simply put, one of the most beautiful movies you’ll ever see.

    Just like the final performance by its deeply disturbed heroine, Black Swan is perfect.

    Each new plot point in Suddenly occurs like the title says, but the passage between them is slow, steady, and sure.
  1. A truly remarkable and compassionate debut from a savvy, self-confident filmmaker. No bull.
  2. Jarecki does a remarkable job with this easily exploitable material.
  3. One of the things that makes this movie such a great rush is that while you’re watching it, it seems a good deal more subversive than it really is.
  4. In the annals of Mediterranean island love stories, Respiro reflects the effortless charm of a film like "Il Postino," rather than the untidy manufactured romance of another "Captain Corelli's Mandolin."
  5. Bardem plays the part with all the pent-up animal rage of a young Robert De Niro.
  6. A brilliant little exercise. As a horror movie, it packs one genuine scare after another, right up to the moment of its inconceivably ghastly end. As a mystery, it unfolds with an almost supernatural elegance. And as a metaphor for the movies themselves, it's truly exceptional.
  7. Fun, fun, fun. [July/Aug 2003, p.26]

  8. The genuine article, a hard-core horror picture from start to finish... Prepare to get seriously stresed.
  9. Terrifically charming and energetic film.
  10. In this sequel, as Elle uses her good-hearted pluck to work toward her goal, Witherspoon is a sheer delight, all charm and light and loveliness; you just want her to win.
  11. It’s a 21st-century version of "The Sting" for these so far rather unkind and ungentle times.
  12. An unexpectedly exuberant, only mildly subversive celebration of music, learning, and going all out for what you love.
  13. Against very steep odds, writer-director Billy Ray and company have, in telling the real-life story of fictionalizing "New Republic" writer Stephen Glass and his downfall, produced the most entertaining inside-journalism movie since "All the President's Men."
  14. While Bartley and O'Briain flat-out lucked out with this felicitous endeavor, their fearlessness, unobtrusive narration, and lack of Michael Moore man-and-microphone pandering is to be saluted.

    Weir consistently proves that he can take any kind of material and adeptly make it his own.
  15. Resurrection is a revelation.
  16. At its most simplified, Sucker punches its way to the top of the Italian-western mountains, but never reaches the peak of its immortalized trilogy brethren.
  17. Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly create characters that live and seethe with absolute credibility, and Ron Eldard’s Lester is a subtle portrait of a good man who lets himself go bad, first out of boredom, then out of erotic fixation.
  18. In the end, it's not the answer to the kitchen mystery that matters but the revelation that there's ultimately no difference between this bachelor scientist and his bachelor subject.
