    At a certain point, everyone watching Molly’s Game will form the question, “Why should I care about any of this?” It’s a question Sorkin should have anticipated. He has no good answer.

    Sparrows is a kind of cinematic fable. At times funny, sad, poignant and suspenseful, Sparrows is a showcase for Majidi's masterful storytelling - and Naji's superb acting.

    A wonderful French offering whose jumping-off point is a bullfight.

    Ten
    A minimalist film, Ten looks and feels like a documentary. At the end, there is no big denouement, but a profound realization that the people we see on camera are all aching for answers -- and struggling to come to terms with their lives.

    These aren't the marching band songs of your father's or mother's generation but a musical expression that is modern and exciting to watch.

    An artful look at religious hypocrisy, interfamily dynamics and the way people wrestle with personal history long after the original events are over.

    A touching, sophisticated film that almost seems like a documentary in the way it captures an Italian immigrant family on the brink of major changes.

    Marks Chan's full arrival as an actor. Take away the violence - - and there's plenty of it for those who crave Chan's physical pyrotechnics -- and he's still an immense pleasure to watch onscreen.

    A sometimes interesting remake that doesn't compare to the brilliant original.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Jonathan Curiel
    Serious and absurd (mostly, it's a drama) but never finds a good rhythm. The movie flounders in a way that calls too much attention to itself -- and is hurt by jarring and unbelievable plot twists.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Curiel
    Dramatic, funny, fun, silly, musical, stylish, romantic and redemptive -- a film worth telling your friends and neighbors about.

    The jokes are sophomoric, stereotypes are sprinkled everywhere and the acting ranges from bad to bodacious.

    Romantic and even silly -- a combination that makes Divine Intervention an almost irresistible work of art.
    • 81 Metascore
