2/4
This is one French comedy that could have used a little more hand wringing and a little less whimsy.

2/4
Tower Heist (2011)
Tower Heist constantly makes you aware of the buttons and levers the movie is pushing and pulling: There's something artificial and plastic about the film that keeps you from ever truly getting lost into it.

3.5/4
By the end of the movie, when all your questions have been answered, you're left with the exhilarating high of having been manipulated by a gifted artist in a diabolically dark mood.

Margin Call (2011)
Margin Call is the movie Oliver Stone tried to make with Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, only a lot less flashy and melodramatic -- and sharper, smarter and with a much stronger cast.

The Woman (2011)
Rewards your endurance with an utterly insane 30-minute climax of violence, audacious gore and all-around bad behavior.

Take Shelter (2011)
Take Shelter is paced slowly and deliberately, which is necessary to make believable whatever is tormenting Curtis.

Like every director, Cronenberg has made boring movies before (M. Butterfly, Naked Lunch), but he's never made one this crushingly dull and anonymous.

Blackthorn (2011)
Although Shepard is perfectly cast as a world-weary outlaw reluctantly drawn into one more adventure, the movie doesn't quite justify the resuscitation of classic film characters for another outing.

The Artist (2011)
Sends you home with your head in the clouds, intoxicated by the magic movies pull off better than any other art form.

One of the ingenious things about Martha Marcy May Marlene is how precisely the film is constructed, constantly drawing you in closer while making you dread what's coming.

Williams makes Monroe simultaneously seem larger than life and heartbreakingly human.

The Thing (2011)
There is absolutely nothing in this prequel/remake that improves on the first film or negates it in any way.

The Big Year (2011)
Bird-watching - or birding, as practitioners prefer to call it - makes for a stupefyingly boring movie.

Circumstance (2011)
Keshavarz, who was born in New York City and grew up in the U.S. and Iran, shows us how young people in Tehran get around the constrictive system...

Limelight (2011)
Depending on your age, Limelight could make you nostalgic for those bad old days - and sort of glad you'll never be able to relive them.

Restless (2011)
If anyone other than Gus Van Sant had directed Restless, the film could have well been impossible to sit through.

So impeccably acted and grippingly paced that its lack of revelation doesn't matter.

Nothing about Leap Year plays out exactly like you expect, and Rowe prefers to send you home with enigmatic questions instead of clear-cut answers.

Drive (2011)
What ultimately makes Drive so compelling is its characters - sketches given dimension and heft by a superb cast.

Straw Dogs (2011)
Straw Dogs is an artful provocation -- a meditation on masculinity and societal mores in the guise of an explosive thriller.

Here is a shaggy monster movie that pulls double-duty as a satire of class and ethnic barriers, and how those barriers quickly disappear when we are forced to fight for our simple survival.

In Weisz's eyes, we see Kathryn's transformation from a public servant doing what's expected of her to a crusader driven to by her own conscience. Her performance is terrific; the movie, sadly, is not.

Feels as if it had been conceived and written on the back of a cocktail napkin, then handed over to the actors in hope they could come up with some funny business. No such luck.

The story is a fascinating one, but Proserman doesn't trust it to carry the film.

Even the usually likable Rudd can't do much with the enigmatic Ned, who often behaves exactly in the idiotic manner he's accused of.
