  • Bejo (The Artist) digs deep into the secrets and lies that have afflicted all her relationships, in a wonderfully affecting film that haunts you long after it ends. show more

  • The Past plays out within narrower bounds than "A Separation," and often at lower velocity — a few moments feel almost Chekhovian.

  • Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi pursues his exploration of guilt, choice and responsibility in a superbly written, directed and acted drama that commands attention every step of the way. show more
