"Christian Petzold's script is finely attuned to the atmosphere of suspicion and subterfuge that pervades surveillance states..."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film has hidden depths and an arch way of melding delicate irony with CASABLANCA-like sympathy for human lives tossed by history's cruel currents."Total Film 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Nina Hoss is a magnificent actress, watchful, tense, and spikily intelligent. When a smile cracks open on her face, the warmth and beauty is heartbreaking, because of the contrast."Chicago Sun-Times "It's one terrific film, as smart, thoughtful and emotionally involving as just about anything that's out there."Los Angeles Times "[The director's] early love of Hitchcock, for one, is evident in the prickles of unease that creep into his work, creating a cold climate of paranoia and an oft-justified fear of an imminent threat."New York Times "BARBARA re-visits the quiet, everyday tragedies of the Iron Curtain era, when paranoia ran deep and for very good reasons....[An] evocative, finely detailed drama..."Washington Post "BARBARA is Hoss fifth film with Petzold, and the movie rests on the depth and subtlety of their working relationship."A.V. Club0.171106

"Tom Tykwer's glossy, high finance conspiracy thriller is a spectacular looking film with an unsettling intensity."Hollywood Reporter "THE INTERNATIONAL gets high marks for timeliness....It's a well-made and handsome drama....Clive Owen does a fine job..."USA Today 3 stars out of 4 -- "The movie has a scene in it Hitchcock might have envied, a gun battle ranging up and down the ramps of the Guggenheim Museum in New York....The visuals are terrific..."Chicago Sun-Times "Shot by Tykwer's usual cinematographer Frank Griebe, THE INTERNATIONAL exhibits noticeable visual style as it gallivants around the world, and it also has some solid action sequences."Los Angeles Times "THE INTERNATIONAL is in many ways a throwback to the monochrome urban thrillers of the 1970s, with the added topical twist of having a diabolical financial institution at its center....The compulsively watchable Owen makes for an ideal leading man..."Washington Post 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]n Tykwer's assured hands, and boasting dazzling photography, THE INTERNATIONAL rises tot he top of the espionage pile."Total Film "Owen supplies the needed center of gravity....Owen has proved himself the thinking man and woman's action hero, serving up brains and brawn in a hypnotic wrapper."Rolling Stone "Both Watts and Owen give solid performances as determined investigators, but it's the chemistry between them that makes the whole thing work."Premiere "[T]he star of the pic may well be NYC's Guggenheim Museum and Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, both of which figure in cool action chase sequences that pay handsome dividends."Entertainment Weekly0.1585503

3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Allen] writes and directs with a bristling newfound energy....It's been a long time since a Woody Allen film sparked juicy debate. Savor it." Rolling Stone "[A]n often riveting drama set in London amid the lives of the rich and cultured -- highlighted by an operatic score. And it's proof that Allen, who many have dismissed with his last few forgettable films, is still a filmmaking force."USA Today "It pretty much keeps its pulse steady, its blood cold and its nerves tamped down -- which, combined with cinematographer Remi Adefarasin's architectural Hitchcockian flourishes, lends a queasy, cool air to the proceedings."Los Angeles Times "[Johansson] is the film's most compelling, vivid presence. Like Samantha Morton in SWEET AND LOWDOWN, she makes all of her scenes her own." Sight and Sound Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "MATCH POINT is a fiendishly clever and sophisticated entertainment driven by lust, murder, and the swinging hinge of fate." Entertainment Weekly "Woody Allen's best in years....Ice cold and pitch black..." New York Times "MATCH POINT, a meditation on crime and luck, has the design -- the formal elegance -- of a thriller, yet it has been made with a sublime eye for why people do what they do that marks it as Allen's finest movie since MANHATTAN." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly "It's heart-poundingly tense, genuinely erotic and philosophically brutal in its closing pronouncement..."Uncut "[A]n unexpectedly gripping adultery thrillerthat boasts last year's most electric sparks between costars..." Movieline's Hollywood Life 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's a refreshing vigour and willingness to experiment here we haven't seen since HUSBANDS AND WIVES." Total Film 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Jonathan Rhys Meyers is sensational....It serves its dish of bitter nihilism with a lovely touch of European elan." Premiere0.1229537
