'Cosmopolis' will talk you to death

David Cronenberg loses himself in the florid soliloquies of Don DeLillo in "Cosmopolis," the filmmaker's creepy, cryptic and ever-so-chatty take on DeLillo's novel of the Wall Street "1 percent."

Quiet 'Hope Springs' has real punch

Here's how surprisingly effective "Hope Spring" is: It will make you want to go home and have sex with your spouse afterward. Or at least share a longer hug or a more passionate kiss.

Emotional 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' is extraordinary

The Bathtub is a place of myths and wonders, a broken down teardrop of Louisiana marsh and mud in "Beasts of the Southern Wild" and the setting for an extraordinary new drama whose fierceness, like its 6-year-old heroine Hushpuppy, grabs on and won't let go.

Beat Era blur comes into focus, a little, with 'On the Road'

Jack Kerouac's stream of consciousness novel "On the Road" comes to the screen more or less intact as a not-altogethersatisfying road trip into the Beat Era.

Laughs and tears come at 'the End of the World'

Cram school romance

Although its name doesn't indicate it clearly, "When a wolf falls in love with a sheep" recounts a love encounter between two young adults who've lost their purpose, searching for their next step in life.

'Trouble With the Curve' shows Eastwood has lost his fastball

"Trouble With the Curve" is a baseball dramedy that telegraphs its pitches, an amiable, meandering character study whose big plot points hang there like the curveballs of its title. We see them coming a long time before they cross the plate.

Wolf, sheep fall in love for good

From the outset "When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep" really just looks like your everyday rom-com with the boy-meets-girl-falls-in-love scenario. It is set, however, in a world we might consider quite the opposite of romantic -- stressful, suffocating cram schools.
