About Time (2013)

4/4
12 Years a Slave is at times difficult to watch but always impossible to turn away from.

The film stands alone as a tender portrait of adolescence at its most vulnerable and how often we manage to survive it, even when we're surrounded by predators and wolves.

Bad Milo! (2013)
Here is a movie that, much like its eponymous character, never quite figures out what it wants to be.

Informant (2013)
This timely documentary passes the test as a work of balanced journalism about a man of fascinating contradictions.

Carrie (2013)
Kimberly Peirce's new adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel is a grave but listless thriller.

After Tiller (2013)
The movie takes a calm and intellectual approach to an inflammatory subject, elevating what could have easily come off as propaganda into a reasoned and thoughtful work of journalism.

Writer-director Randy Moore channels everything from "The Shining" to David Lynch's "Eraserhead" to depict a family's gradual disintegration in what is supposed to be the happiest place on Earth.

3.5/4
Director Paul Greengrass' treatment of this material - and Tom Hanks' extraordinary performance - makes the movie required viewing for the informed and uninformed alike.

Gravity (2013)
Gravity is a celebration of the primal pleasure of movies.

Parkland (2013)
Parkland is wildly uneven, although compulsively watchable.

Here is a film in which a man is covered in chicken fat and thrown into a pit of crocodiles, and you still can barely keep your eyes open.

2.5/4
By the end, Nimr and Roy have become heavy-handed symbols for the ongoing clash of ideologies in the Middle East. "Out in the Dark" fared better when it treated them as people.

Blue Caprice (2013)
This lyrical, frightening film is a portrait of a man consumed by self-hatred who decided to take it out on the world.

Rush (2013)
"Rush" is the kind of Hollywood studio production that has sadly become all too rare - a smart, exciting, R-rated entertainment for grown-ups that quickens your pulse and puts on a great show.

Don Jon (2013)
The movie has a keen understanding of how easily we can hurt other people by not considering them.

Prisoners (2013)
After two hours of relentless tension, Prisoners starts revealing its secrets to progressively hokier effect.

C.O.G. (2013)
There are a few stretches in C.O.G. where the movie feels like it's dawdling, much like its protagonist. But the wonderfully sad, exhilarating ending proves this filmmaker knew exactly where he was headed the entire time.

Adore (2013)
This isn't an Oedipus complex. This is a Preposterous complex.

The Family (2013)
The movie is a cartoon, but the stakes are surprisingly real.

Riddick (2013)
A modestly budgeted bone Universal Pictures threw at Diesel so he would keep starring in "Fast and Furious" pictures. Those movies are bank; "Riddick" is rank.

The movie has a keen eye for the ways in which we sometimes resign ourselves to less-than-satisfying lives.

A throwaway by a gifted filmmaker who has run out of ideas.

The Grandmaster blends right in with Wong's body of work, a gorgeous meditation on the importance of sorrow and lament. This one just happens to have kung fu, too.

Lowery has a lyrical style of storytelling that is delicate and subtle yet suffused with emotion and atmosphere. It's gentle and pointed at the same time.

"The Artist and the Model" is a contemplative ode to creativity and imagination.

Getaway (2013)
The Shelby Mustang driven by Hawke isn't just the fastest car in all of Bulgaria: It also has the ability to heal itself, like Wolverine.

Much like his fellow Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke, Seidl knows how to keep his audience captivated while rattling us with a discomfiting precision.

This adaptation of Tim Tharp's novel, directed with delicate restraint by James Ponsoldt, sneaks up on you. It makes you laugh, then it breaks your heart.

Although its humor is not for all tastes, no one can say this crazy picture doesn't have the guts to live up to its title.

You're Next (2013)
Wingard does pull off a few stylish setpieces: He is clearly talented. But the movie, which was shot two years ago and has been kicking around the film festival circuit since then, feels dated and trite.

"The Mortal Instruments" franchise is strictly for the initiated. They will no doubt love it. Everyone else will be flummoxed.

When compared to something as patronizing and manipulative as "Forrest Gump," "Lee Daniels' The Butler" comes off as an earnest crowd-pleaser with history on its side.

Jobs (2013)
"Jobs" works much better as a history of Apple than it does as a portrait of the genius who dreamed it up.

In The Act of Killing, director Joshua Oppenheimer pulls off the impossible: He confronts great, incomprehensible evil and puts a human face on it.
