    Maniacally funny. It remains neck and neck with "Young Frankenstein" as Brooks' best film.

    Released in 1962, it was pretty clearly the most intelligent spectacular within living memory. On its 40th anniversary, it's even better.

    The pacing is slow, but the film is entrancing and earns a permanent place in the viewer's mind.

    This film made Dietrich a star, and it's easy to see why: Slightly more voluptuous than in her later films, Dietrich is the embodiment of the pleasures of the flesh.

    While Imamura films generally have their droll moments, this is the most blatantly comic work he's done since the '80s -- richly entertaining and suggestive of any number of metaphorical readings.

    It's an amazing story, but, in addition to its intrinsic interest, the Shackleton expedition has another remarkable draw: Crewman Frank Hurley had brought along not only still cameras, but a movie camera as well, providing us with an extraordinary record of the ship's voyage.

    An exciting, sharply realized melodramatic film noir, based on Elizabeth Sanxay Holding's novel "The Blank Wall."

    Full of provocative concepts, but, like most films that attack such metaphysical concerns head-on, things have become a tad too jumbled by the end to be altogether satisfying. It's a problem built into the subject matter...This all said, Dark City is immensely entertaining, as well as visually dazzling.

    It's funny, heroic, exaggerated and, most of all, energetic; the film speeds along as though afraid to lose the audience's attention for even a moment.

    Once the action kicks in -- starting with an extraordinary balletic fight in the rain featuring the two masters and a flying wooden beam -- you can't take your eyes off the screen.

    The film could be subtitled "Six Characters in Search of an Ending:" When they find that ending, it is gently, delightfully uplifting.

    Altman's technique also allows his huge cast to act up a storm, in the best sense. Gosford Park has roughly half the best actors in England in it.

    One of the compulsively watchable films this year, second only to "Memento." It's a must-see, except for those with a sensitivity to on-screen mayhem.

    It's moving; but it's also endlessly engaging, uproariously funny at moments, informative, and eventually touching in ways one might not have expected.

    Except for a few slow patches, the movie is compulsively watchable: You keep waiting to see just how sick things are going to get.

    Surprisingly manages never to grow boring -- which proves that Rohmer still has a sense of his audience.
    • 82 Metascore

    The film is a masterpiece of nuance and characterization, marred only by an inexplicable, utterly distracting blunder at the very end.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Klein
    From the start, a comprehensible, if necessarily simplified, sense of an extremely complicated moment in history.

    I still think the first is the best in the series, but I'm in the minority: Number two has a stronger following among the legions of Hong Kong movie buffs.

    On one level, Together is a countercultural soap opera, though played more as bittersweet comedy than as drama.

    What Nolan does accomplish here that we haven't seen from him before is staging a few horrifyingly effective suspense set pieces -- one of which, in particular, is likely to stay with you for a long time.

    Office Space's pleasures don't really depend on plot. It's pretty much what a Dilbert feature should look like.

    In the end, Code Unknown is a puzzle with no obvious solution.
    • 53 Metascore

    This nearly perfect confection never takes its action more seriously than its comedy.

    A warning is virtually mandated: No one who's even the least bit squeamish should even think about seeing Audition. But, if you have a taste for the disturbing, it's a trip that will stay with you for some time.

    Fans of convoluted narrative in the manner of Christopher Nolan and David Lynch are likely to be intrigued, although Medem has a far stronger streak of sentiment.

    Wisely, Run Lola Run lasts something under 80 minutes; any longer, and it would have been as exhausting and boring as a half-hour Donna Summer track.

    Dramatically effective, thanks in large part to Montand's impassioned performance.

    Dench is wholly extraordinary in a characterization that is frequently muted, literally and necessarily.

    Washington creates an indelibly charming and terrifying character whose volatile blend of dedication and horrible expediency keeps us off balance.
