Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
Inside Llewyn Davis
Has stylish visuals and a provocative, imaginative screenplay, but occasionally drags and feels convoluted with too many irritatingly awkward moments that lack an emotional core.
| Original Score: 5.75/10
Perestroika races back and forth between the Soviet past and non-Communist present. The result is highly personal, talky, clunky and somehow engrossing.
| Original Score: 2/4
Perestroika is a curious combination of documentary and fiction, politics and science, sophisticated structure and incompetent drama.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Too much science-babble obscures the truth of Perestroika. The tragedy of the aftermath would have made a better story unvarnished.
| Original Score: 5/10
The Russians have a word for it: Nyet.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Alternately fascinating and boring, ultimately confusing, yet heartfelt film by a Russian expatriate about returning to the homeland after Gorbachev.
A nuanced and fascinating film about a Russian scientist's journey home to Moscow after living in the United States for 17 years.
| Original Score: 3/5
Thought-provoking, if not wholly satisfying, "Perestroika" is a deconstructionist filmic stew to be savored without expectation in order to enjoy its laissez-faire reality.
| Original Score: B-
The film, which opened March 20 in Los Angeles, is unwieldy, overstuffed and at times hopelessly clunky, yet it's also touchingly funny, visually arresting and somehow a consistent joy to watch.
Perestroika asks, with a philosophical shrug of the shoulders: Why not try to be optimistic?
| Original Score: 3.5/5
one of the year's strangest and most compelling narratives.
| Original Score: 4/5
On the evidence of his new movie, Slava Tsukerman, who made the 1982 cult movie Liquid Sky, would make a brilliantly entertaining dinner guest.
