    The result is something truly special.

    Adapted from Kirsty Gunn's acclaimed novel, New Zealand director Christine Jeff's debut feature is a small masterpiece of atmosphere.

    It's a surprisingly uplifting experience, and in the end, unmistakably a Kiarostami film.

    From its ominous opening to its spectacular climactic stunt, the hypnotic precursor to director Tom Tykwer's "Run Lola Run" is a quieter but creepier affair.

    This exciting, ultimately bittersweet, film was shot cheaply on video, but is nevertheless filled with moments of artistry and invention.

    The shame of it all is that Kane somehow managed to assemble an extraordinary cast, whose fine performances can't surmount the tedium of his script.

    However stale the material, Lawrence's delivery remains perfect; his great gift is that he can actually trick you into thinking some of this worn-out, pandering palaver is actually funny.

    Refreshingly serious look at young women whose relative freedom doesn't mean they're particularly free.

    Overall, the filmmakers are a little too reverent -- it would have been interesting to hear Derrida respond to criticism leveled against deconstruction as an academic methodology -- but then again, they're not entirely in control here.

    Mimics the kind of comedy that doesn't date particularly well to begin with.
    • 85 Metascore

    Also featured are countless cameos from local superstars ranging from the Fall's Mark E. Smith to Mani of the Stone Roses, making the film an absolute thrill for fans of the Manchester scene.

    There are worse movies, but that's no excuse. Rarely has so much money delivered so little entertainment.
    • 49 Metascore

    The film's few saving graces include Dickinson's sardonic southern belle; Winger's welcome return to the screen after a five-year absence; and Howard's voice-over readings of Brown's powerful prose, which ultimately saves the film from itself.

    The film fires off too many intriguing plot possibilities that remain nothing more than that.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Ken Fox
    Short on action but heavy on ambiance, and the cumulative effect packs a whopper if you're willing to stop and think about it. Penn, never one to opt for action over thought, clearly expects that his audience will.

    Very possibly the most ruthlessly irritating comedy since the dreaded "S.F.W." attempted to put its finger on the pulse of young America, and that's saying something.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    The mystery is terribly plotted and the satirical elements are limited and not very funny.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    Who these brave men were and why they fought disappears under the usual clichés, while the astounding acts of courage that occurred at Ia Drang are lost to the dust and din.
    • 58 Metascore

    Shot through the bars of a barbed-wire topped cage and staged to a pounding soundtrack, the fight is quite a spectacle, but it's ultimately an empty one.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    Neither the appealing cast nor the bouncing, ska-inflected soundtrack can keep the party going.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Ken Fox
    With its thumping soundtrack, absence of body hair and a camera that practically pants over every bulge, curve and crack of the male form, the film is really closer to porn than a serious critique of what's wrong with this increasingly pervasive aspect of gay culture.

    History has since overtaken Ponfilly's film, which now more than ever seems like but one chapter in a much larger story -- the ongoing tragedy of Afghanistan -- and a tragic tribute to all that might have been.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Ken Fox
    Powerfully acted, intensely carnal drama.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Ken Fox
    An uncomfortable go at romantic comedy that belabors the same mistaken-for-gay premise as"In & Out," but without much of that film's charm.

    By the end, it should be perfectly clear just why Cho is so loved by so many different types of people. Raunchy though her material is, it embraces all comers, regardless of gender, sexuality, race or ethnicity. And it's never been sharper — or funnier — than it is here.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Ranks among the best films ever made about the acting profession.
    • 69 Metascore

    There's terrific chemistry between Perez and Auteuil.
    • 74 Metascore

    The film not only stands as an important street-level document of that time, but makes a valuable contribution to the growing compilation of 9/11 storytelling.

    Ali
    It's a brilliant impersonation; Smith gets Ali's speech patterns and Louisville accent exactly right, and astonishingly convincing facial prosthetics complete the transformation. But he never quite finds the man under the enormous image; those quintessential Mann moments, during which Ali is left alone to brood, feel surprisingly blank.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Ken Fox
    Warm, funny and often brutally honest profile of an aging divorcee and her three very different daughters.
