Inside Llewyn Davis
| Original Score: C-
A marvelous, subtly crafted elegy to a bygone era that balances its scenes of violence and gunplay with laconic humor.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Magic realism is a tricky thing to pull off in a movie, and Disappearances, the third of Mr. Craven's films based on Mr. Mosher's novels, only occasionally succeeds.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
The beautifully photographed Disappearances is solidly old-fashioned entertainment.
| Original Score: 3/4
The film is lovely to look at, but makes not a lick of sense.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
If you're one of those people (like this reviewer) who can watch Kris Kristofferson do just about anything, you won't insist on the references being that solid.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Alas, the story descends into mystical mumbo jumbo.
| Original Score: 3/6
Though set in Vermont in the 1930s, this has the feel of a Western -- one with mystical overtones -- and provides a great role for Kris Kristofferson, who's looking well weathered these days.
Jay Craven's stilted adaptation of a novel by Howard Frank Mosher lacks the urgency, the poetry, or the feeling for period that might have brought the material to life, while the cast seems to be largely squandered.
This scenic adventure is too fussy with metaphysical lore.
| Original Score: 2/4
Shot for only $1.7 million, but it's a thoroughly entertaining, first-class job in every way.
An utterly earnest, likable enough family-focused action-adventure.
A frontier spirit and a strong connection to the landscape inform the piece, which aims not to wow but to immerse the viewer in a mystical, hardscrabble, bygone world.
A stirringly acted frontier tale, infused with bewildering magical-realist touches that may prove trying to viewers less attuned to its visual pleasures.
