Review by Matt Zoller Seitz
The funniest movie about grief ever made.

In this unusual comedy, Andre Royo plays an ex-con scavenging on the streets of Los Angeles.
Review by Roger Ebert
Julie Dash's Daughters of the Dust is a tone poem of old memories, a family album in which all of the pictures are taken on the same day.
Review by Peter Sobczynski
The kind of lazy genre hackwork that will inspire more yawns than screams—at least until the final reels, when the sounds of incredulous laughter will no doubt take over.
Review by Susan Wloszczyna
It is best to simply sit back at some point and enjoy the ride.
Review by Glenn Kenny
So vehement is writer/director Tom Ford in articulating his vision at times that you think he'd be disappointed by a viewer that wasn't at least a little bit angry with him over the movie.
A boxer gets knocked out by life, then gets back up.
Review by Christy Lemire
The Edge of Seventeen is a delight, with Hailee Steinfeld serving as the radiant star at its center.
Review by Nick Allen
A project that many history documentaries should aspire to, Blood on the Mountain has much to think about, learn from and never forget.
Review by Brian Tallerico
It is a case study, a film driven by the people it captures, and it fits the Kartemquin model of filmmaking well in that they clearly believe by getting to know others we also get to know ourselves.
This is one of those based on true events movies that give you the distinct feeling that the true events deserved better.
Review by Godfrey Cheshire
Obviously a different movie than would have been the case had it been made by filmmakers, writers and actors from the cultures it depicts, especially Azerbaijan but also Georgia (the former Soviet republic), Armenia and Iran.
Review by Simon Abrams
The kind of cynical entertainment that will leave you feeling like a mark.
Review by Sheila O'Malley
I Am Madame Bovary plays out as a comedy, a lampoon of the incompetence and laziness of government officials.
Though a warming tribute to strength, this comprehensive documentary's approach can feel too tidy.
Review by Odie Henderson
Quite often, the filmmakers go for blurry scenery, surreal events and odd camera shots that feel more like gimmicks than an accurate representation of its subject's affliction.
It isn't funny or entertaining enough to recommend, but it's certainly not the torturous experience of recent James vehicles like Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 or Pixels, and parts of it actually work.
