Ali G Indahouse (2003, 88 min., R)

Unlike its televised predecessor, Ali G Indahouse just isn’t that funny.

Alias Betty (2001, 103 min., NR)

Alias Betty is either a fascinating study of the relationship between mothers and their children or a disturbing story about sociopaths and their marks. I'm not sure, but both readings of this taut French thriller seem ...

Alice et Martin (1998, 124 min., R)

Every adult is a reaction to a childhood. Our adult form represents the survival of (or the succumbing to) the traumas and triumphs of our youth. For the bastard-born Martin, that means recovering from his mother ...

Alice in Wonderland (2010, 108 min., PG)

Sadly, the mirth-to-muck ratio in Tim Burton's new film is deeply imbalanced.

Alien Resurrection (1997, 109 min., R)

Vastly superior to David Fincher's studio-gutted Alien3, this fourth outing still falls short of both Ridley Scott's hair-raising original and James Cameron's balls-out, war-in-space Aliens. Much of the problem here lies with Jeunet's unpleasantly sterile direction; ...

Alien Trespass (2009, 90 min., PG)

Taking its cues from several classic 1950s sci-fi films, Alien Trespass is a deeply affectionate homage to the era when every kid on the block knew what "Klaatu borada nikto" meant.

Alien Vs. Predator (2004, 110 min., PG-13)

An asinine grudge match between two of the most memorable Eighties-era screen bugaboos

Aliens in the Attic (2009, 86 min., PG)

A group of kids save their vacation home from extraterrestrials while keeping their clueless elders out of the loop.

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007, 86 min., R)

Apocalyptic monster mash makes big crash.

Alien³ (1992, 115 min., R)

Weaver's Lt. Ripley and H.R. Giger's brainchild face off in Fincher's beautifully shot sequel that goes nowhere.

Alive (1993, 127 min., R)

I can remember reading the novel Alive when I was much younger and having, not nightmares per se, but more like uneasy dreams for some time after. Frank Marshall's film version of the story deftly manages ...

Alive & Kicking (1996, 100 min., R)

Medical science seems well on its way to turning the AIDS-haunted gay romance genre into a dated curiosity. But even if, as we all pray, the white smocks succeed in their mission, a handful of these ...

All About My Mother (1999, 101 min., R)

All About My Mother merges all of Almodóvar's noted preoccupations with women on the verge of nervous breakdowns, screwball melodramas, and flamboyant visual touches with a cohesive – and universal – story about the faces and roles we all adopt in public.

All About Steve (2009, 98 min., PG-13)

Sandra Bullock plays it kooky in this romantic comedy in which she stalks a CNN cameraman (Bradley Cooper) with whom she's smitten.

All About the Benjamins (2002, 100 min., R)

The ESPN SportsCenterization of action cinema continues apace with All About the Benjamins. My point: Modern actioners increasingly resemble sports highlights shows in their pandering to the Phallo-American community's love of spectacular payoff moments and wise-ass ...

All I Want for Christmas (1991, 92 min., G)

Call this one Miracle on 12th Street. No it's not precisely the same story as the 34th Street model (or even one-third the story), but it borrows much of the same whimsy, grit and Christmas sentiment ...

All Is Lost (2013, 106 min., PG-13)

In this near-wordless film, Robert Redford is compulsively watchable as a man trying to save himself from his sinking ship.

All Over Me (1997, 90 min., R)

Claude (Folland) is the sort of teenage girl who goes by Claude instead of Claudia: a big, sturdy girl with beautiful red hair, a wardrobe full of loose-fitting clothes, and the desire to start a rock ...

All Over the Guy (2001, 94 min., R)

Like most freakish accidents, falling in love is sometimes just a matter of good timing. In the romantic comedy All Over the Guy, the physical and emotional attraction between one couple is instantaneous, while the relationship ...

All That I Need (2005, 80 min., R)

Movies this bad don’t often get released anymore, a circumstance that instantly raises the curiosity factor of All That I Need.

All the King's Men (2006, 120 min., PG-13)

Despite an A-list cast and director, it's astonishing how bad this movie is.

All the Pretty Horses (2000, 117 min., R)

This much-storied and long-in-the-making film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's widely cherished Western novel is neither the sacrilege that McCarthy's true believers feared nor the epiphany for which fans of the Western film genre had hoped. Instead, ...

All the Real Girls (2003, 108 min., R)

There’s a Silver Jews song called "Inside the Golden Days of Missing You" that laments the twin states of getting over love and getting over getting over love: "and then the feeling fades away, but you ...

All the Vermeers in New York (1990, 87 min.)

This newest work from steadfast American independent filmmaker, Jon Jost, almost breaks out of his arthouse ghetto and into markedly familiar movie strategies like narrative and performance, making this his most engaging merger of experimental and ...

All Things Must Pass (2015, 94 min., NR)

Spirited doc traces the rise and fall of Tower Records

Allegiance (2012, 91 min., R)

Bow Wow plays a National Guard soldier who goes AWOL in the early Nineties in this unfoused drama

Alleluia (2014, 93 min., NR)

A Belgian riff on the pitch-black legend of the Honeymoon Killers

All's Faire in Love (2011, 104 min., PG-13)

Christina Ricci stars in this strained romantic comedy set in the world of renaissance festivals.

Almost Famous (2000, 122 min., R)

This sweet, amiable, and knowing coming-of-age tale is Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical boyz-to-men story about how he grew into the role of a rock & roll journalist in 1973.

Almost Heroes (1998, 92 min., PG-13)

Oh, bitter irony! Christopher Guest, the great satirist of crap artists (he wrote or co-wrote This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, and The Big Picture)) has joined their ranks. And he can't even blame it ...
