    Vertical Limit represents another kind of propaganda--namely the current Hollywood notion that the bigger and louder and longer a movie is, the more people will want to see it, even if that means getting numbed before your popcorn's cold.

    As a musical feast, Groove works well. As a celebration of tribal ritual, it's even better.

    Flecked with delicious malice, and the kids, especially newcomer Coughlin, performs with verve and high energy.

    In short, Just Say Yes.

    The most liberating thing about this funny, touching, heartfelt little movie is the way it defies the rules and, in the end, begins to set its heroines free. They've earned it.

    • 90 Bill Gallo
    Impeccably acted by a fine ensemble cast, it's a sheer pleasure to behold.

    Can be as howlingly funny as it is touching.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Bill Gallo
    Consistently fails to deliver the charm it presumes to have.

    Sugar Town's tunes are terrific, and the writing is sharp. But the typecasting is a work of genius.

    This lovely movie, simply and beautifully shot in Brazil's northeastern countryside by cinematographer Breno Silveira, is satisfying from start to finish.

    It's difficult to imagine a more eloquent tribute.

    In short, let nothing deter you from staying home.

    Despite his natty wardrobe and calculated sangfroid, Penn doesn't summon up quite the right image.

    Comes straight out of the Forrest Gump School of Interpersonal Magic, and that's not necessarily a good thing.
    • 67 Metascore

    Jack's odyssey, despite some clunky writing and predictable first-movie missteps, gives off a flavor and a flair that stick with you.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 70 Bill Gallo
    In his observant, swiftly paced Stardom, Arcand does it all with relentless wit, high style, and a suggestion of tragedy.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Bill Gallo
    Surprisingly tender and resolutely unpostmodern.
    • 78 Metascore

    Davies has nailed Wharton's bitter satire of the flights and follies of New York society in the Gilded Age, and leading lady Gillian Anderson shows dazzling range in her portrayal of the book's doomed heroine.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 70 Bill Gallo
    Its loose-limbed sweetness and gruff irreverence are just right.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Bill Gallo
    Whatever else is weak or indulgent in this fledgling effort -- self-consciousness and a certain grim solemnity come to mind -- it has the jolt of truth about it, like a lot of thinly veiled fiction.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Bill Gallo
    For Caan's shtick alone, The Yards is worthwhile, but we may also be witnessing the emergence, in Gray, of a young filmmaker who's just starting to find the range.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Bill Gallo
    A vivid double portrait of the artistic sensibility in its many weathers -- expressed by two fine actors clearly engaged in a labor of love.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Bill Gallo
    Exceptionally smart and charming.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Bill Gallo
    The movies' time-honored old-man-and-boy theme has rarely been used to such great advantage.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Bill Gallo
    This is anything but pleasant stuff, but it's a must-see for anyone interested in men and women, fathers and sons, and the kind of murder mystery in which the real casualty is the human soul.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Bill Gallo
    A fresh, intimate, gloriously unpolished performance film that measures up to the classics of the genre.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Bill Gallo
    Unfortunately, Bullock and Affleck don't strike many sparks or produce many yuks…they're not exactly built for comedy.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Bill Gallo
    Has plenty of dark horror style, but it lacks the weird charm of the 1971 original starring Bruce Davison...It's a nice homage.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Bill Gallo
    In this modest but brilliant little movie, we find ourselves immersed in life itself.

    Rookie writer-director Dylan Kidd, late of NYU film school, knows how to get the best out of jittery, handheld camera shots, and he knows how to go for the jugular. Roger is the bleakest comic portrait of misogynist self-delusion we've seen in a long time.
