Untidy and self-conscious, the movie nevertheless pulls together a vivid portrait of Edith Piaf.

Arctic Tale (2007)
The film would be more enjoyable if one could turn off the soundtrack and simply revel in the stunning visual evocation of this white-on-white world.

1408 (2007)
Cusack manages to summon deep wellsprings of personal grief along with breezy humor and naked animal terror. It's a tour de force performance that confirms the talents of this remarkably versatile, sometimes underrated actor.
Posted Jun 19, 2007
Quantcast The plot is but an excuse for a series of elaborately choreographed fight sequences featuring a combination of digital and wire work that somehow manages to feel completely fake despite the obvious physical exertions of its well-trained cast.

Ratatouille (2007)
Brad Bird and Pixar Animation Studios are proving to be an unbeatable combination.
Posted Jun 18, 2007
Much of the slapstick comedy involved in the building is feeble, and the film never does something unexpected once the wheels are set in motion.
Posted Jun 18, 2007
A surprisingly light-hearted though nonetheless devilish spirit.
Posted Jun 15, 2007
Amu (2006)
Less about finger-pointing than a plea for India to confront its past.
Posted Jun 15, 2007
L'Iceberg (2005)
Ultimately undone by its air of overly mannered preciousness.
Posted Jun 15, 2007
Maybe it has something to do with seriously diminished expectations, but Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is an improvement of sorts over the lifeless 2005 edition.
Posted Jun 14, 2007
A simultaneously dispiriting and inspiring portrait of the auditioning process that will be of great interest to actors and casting directors.
Posted Jun 14, 2007
Nancy Drew (2007)
It's hardly sacred literature that shouldn't be messed with, yet the source material's particular resonance remains elusive in this 21st century update.
Posted Jun 9, 2007
Anyone seriously interested in the subject will find much to fascinate them here.
Posted Jun 9, 2007
The relentless quirkiness of the proceedings proves wearisome, and the bizarre structural conceit is not enough to compensate for the overly familiar characterizations and story line.
Posted Jun 9, 2007
This topsy-turvy funeral produces a number of smiles, giggles, pleasant guffaws and several solid, sustained laughs. Not a bad batting average as comedies go.
Posted Jun 9, 2007
Sheds much-needed light on a fascinating show-business institution.
Posted Jun 8, 2007
Eli Roth kicks things up a jagged notch with this bloody satisfying sequel.
Posted Jun 7, 2007
Delicatessen (1992)
With their detached, sardonic and decidedly sick slant, Jeunet and Caro have served up a burnt-to-a-crisp feast.
Posted Jun 5, 2007
Day Watch (2007)
Its imagination is limited. The backstory is shallow and pat. Its characters are mostly one-note. And everything goes on much too long at 133 minutes.
Posted Jun 5, 2007
Surf's Up (2007)
Surfing penguins make for radical fun for young children.
Posted Jun 4, 2007
James Gray again tackles his familiar family themes again within an overly familiar cops-gangsters genre.
Posted Jun 1, 2007
Knocked Up (2007)
Apatow's gleefully raunchy movies are, in an odd and charming way, extremely family-friendly.
Posted May 31, 2007
Gracie (2007)
It's not without well-observed moments, and in the title role, Carly Schroeder makes an agreeably flawed and feisty rooting interest.
Posted May 30, 2007
Mr. Brooks (2007)
Overdesigned characters and situations stretch plausibility at every turn.
Posted May 30, 2007
[Director Ki-duk] creates some startling images within the curious logic of his tale. It has something to do with inhaling badness and exhaling goodness but those expecting it to make sense shouldn't exactly hold their breath.
Posted May 25, 2007
Alexandra (2007)
Stark but moving snapshot of men on the front line of a nation's nightmare.
Posted May 25, 2007
Radiant and wise comedy of miscommunication.
Posted May 25, 2007
Young Yakuza (2008)
An intelligent, if non-illuminating, look at an organization.
Posted May 25, 2007
Not so much an entertainment or even an illumination, but rather a personal cinematic scrapbook, which should be stamped 'return to sender.'
Posted May 25, 2007
A talking-heads, philosophic tedium posing as a film.
Posted May 25, 2007
[Recaptures] much of the spirit of the original film.
Posted May 25, 2007
Emotionally complex tale of a woman's confrontation with the worst of fates.
Posted May 25, 2007
Savage Grace (2007)
By scrupulously avoiding melodrama, [director] Kalin ensures that the characters remain recognizably human despite their flaws and monstrous weaknesses.
Posted May 25, 2007
It's never clear what it all means or even if it's supposed to mean anything. Music and silliness get the picture through to its circular ending.
Posted May 25, 2007
Four Minutes (2007)
Unfortunately, after almost two hours the gloom becomes monotonous and the one-dimensional characters wear out their welcome.
Posted May 24, 2007
Other than its black-and-white photography, this is a nearly unwatchable movie.
Posted May 24, 2007
Persepolis (2007)
The filmmakers were right to believe that a live-action version of this story would have failed to achieve the universality Persepolis does.
Posted May 24, 2007
Yumurta (2007)
In pacing and vitality, this is almost as listless as its drab lead character.
Posted May 24, 2007
Intricate and moving drama about life's struggles and near misses.
Posted May 24, 2007
More than ever, Depp masterfully keeps the enterprise afloat, even when the sheer weight of all those other characters threatens to throw it off-course.
Posted May 23, 2007
More a home movie than a documentary film.
Posted May 23, 2007
A fine and engaging study of two personalities, seemingly in sharp contrast, that prove awfully alike in the end.
Posted May 23, 2007
Director Julian Schnabel and screenwriter Ronald Harwood have performed a small miracle in adapting for the screen Jean-Dominique Bauby's autobiography The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
Posted May 23, 2007
Go Go Tales (2007)
Amazingly dunderheaded.
Posted May 23, 2007
A tawdry little film ostensibly about the cultural clashes resulting from the proximity of former Soviet states, such as the Ukraine, to western nations such as Austria. There is a film to be made on the topic, but this isn't it.
Posted May 22, 2007
Entertaining if overly reverent.
Posted May 22, 2007
Tehilim (2007)
Narrow focus will limit the film's appeal severely.
Posted May 22, 2007
[An] expertly fashioned documentary-style drama.
Posted May 21, 2007
Van Sant has composed an emotional mosaic that brings you inside Alex.
