    • 80 Neil Young
    The most sympathetic, illuminating study of domestic labor since Roma.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 90 Neil Young
    Of obvious interest to arthouse audiences in Cullen, Wright and Jensen's native Australia, this ambitious and stimulating glimpse into the dark abyss of creativity deserves widespread international exposure at festivals and via receptive theatrical settings.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    It's an unassuming and delicate work which demands but ultimately repays close attention.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    Properly analyzing what made "Boro" tick, and explaining how one of most acclaimed directors of his generation ended up fizzling out so messily in the 1980s, ultimately proves beyond Mikurda and collaborators.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Neil Young
    The sour-tinged comedy of excruciatingly English embarrassment deploys some talented performers on both sides of the camera but its promising parts never quite cohere into a properly satisfying whole.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Rocky roads to romance, self-realization and adulthood are quirkily mapped in Take Me Somewhere Nice, a distinctive and ultimately quite promising debut by Bosnian-born Dutch writer-director Ena Sendijarevic.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    A shaggy-seeming but carefully modulated affair, To the Ends of the Earth gradually emerges as an offbeat but persuasive investigation of culture-clashes and the potential for trans-global bridge-building.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Punctuated with moments of illumination, humor and even occasional visual flair —the opening shot executes a stately 360-degree cityscape pan from a high crane — Present. Perfect manages to retain interest despite a certain repetitiveness and some patience-taxing longueurs.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    An undeniably demanding but cumulatively rewarding mood piece.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A pleasant, if in the end slightly inconsequential picture, perhaps primarily of interest to those currently experiencing Mullins-style sibling frictions and joys, those who have fresh memories of the same and ethnographers/anthropologists keen to see how some of the world's most economically fortunate minors currently make the ever-rocky transition from youth to adulthood.

    • 70 Neil Young
    A range of camera positions, from wide landscape shots to ultra-intimate close-ups, instead allows us to appreciate the two hounds in their adopted setting of the Parque de los Reyes.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    An easygoing, unashamedly old-fashioned picture executed with a light touch that conceals a serious and sharply topical subtext.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Neil Young
    This is a demanding and fitfully rewarding film which focuses minutely on the shifting relationships between its three protagonists.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    An infectiously enjoyable slice of knockabout nostalgia that wears its Trainspotting heritage proudly on its rough-edged tartan sleeve.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Neil Young
    Mayfair's picture feels like the work of a seasoned veteran rather than a newcomer, but this isn't necessarily a compliment. It's sensitively poetic and tremulously delicate to a fault, with every beat seemingly accompanied and underlined by an intrusive score from Ton That An which is heavily freighted with plangent strings and mournful piano notes.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Observing how six service dogs provide crucial daily help and companionship for their grateful owners, the ruminative, accessible affair proves as soothing to the viewer as the faithful pets are to their humans.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    A fundamentally serious film leavened by a streak of deadpan, droll humor, its quality will ensure even greater interest in Ailhaud's memoir in the run-up to its impending centenary.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Bustamante's screenplay is a philosophically and theologically nuanced affair, intermittently elliptical, concentrating on the bigger picture without bothering to sketch in the smaller details. This becomes something of an issue, given that these are often the pivots upon which the somewhat telenovela-like plot hinges.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Neil Young
    It's an uncompromising, sophisticated, multi-layered work of art which demands to be met at least halfway.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Neil Young
    There's no mistaking the earnest anger which motivates her assault on the sexist "dark ages" values still to be found in many Macedonian provincial areas, but expressing it in such clunky terms does no service to the cause.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Medel, seldom off-screen, turns in a marvelous, utterly engaging portrait of an intelligent, caring person slowly stretched to breaking point.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A work of admirable journalistic seriousness.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    An admirably audacious feat of documentarian access, Of Fathers and Sons is of obvious topical and anthropological interest as a glimpse into the gradual radicalization of young males and the deep community ties which underpin the process.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Obtaining all-areas access to Olympic-competing Russian star athlete Margarita Mamun, Prus records in intense detail the verbal and physical pressures to which the young woman is subjected by her fiercely determined coaches.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Stands on its own as a small-scale enterprise which makes some telling points about much bigger issues relating to American society, sports and community ties.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Russell Mulcahy's In Like Flynn triumphs as a disgracefully entertaining romp that packs an unexpected emotional wallop.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Neil Young
    Indeed, the picture works best when it eschews dialogue and plot altogether and the lush musical elements combine with the intense hues of Manu Dacosse's 16mm-shot visuals to stimulatingly trippy effect.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    The first hour is the strongest, graced as it is by Estiano's nuanced performance as a conventional-seeming young woman who gradually and very sympathetically reveals her inner self after welcoming Clara into her life.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Thierry is utterly convincing and compelling from first to last, in a deglamorized but sensual performance of tautly controlled severity and uncompromising rigor.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Accessible, informative and wryly humorous, the film uses Srbijanka's tastefully decorated residence as a prism through which to view the woman, her turbulent times and the complicated history of the former Yugoslavia.
