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

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

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

    For most people, four hours pushes the outer comfort limits for theatrical viewing. My Voyage to Italy is well worth the time, but bringing along a thermos of espresso isn't a bad idea either.

    For all its mystery and its stylistic finesse, there is something vaguely plodding about The Sweet Hereafter.

    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.

    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.

    The plot may be nothing, but the film is something indeed.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Varda, still pixieish in her early 70s, is having fun here.

    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 is a masterpiece of nuance and characterization, marred only by an inexplicable, utterly distracting blunder at the very end.

    Shot in stylish black and white, with a memorably low-key performance from Duchesne, Bob le Flambeur is definitely worth checking out on the big screen in a fresh print.

    If the performances are the prime reason the film is as engaging as it is, it must also be said that Majidi's visual style seems far more sophisticated than in "Children of Heaven."

    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.

    Those with an interest in new or singular sorts of film experiences will find What Time Is It There? well worth the time.
    • 79 Metascore

    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.

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

    Eureka is, quite extraordinarily, never dull.

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

    Headey, Skarsgård and Rampling flesh these people out marvelously, bringing them fully to life. It's almost a pity: The more real they become, the less pleasant is the time we spend with them.

    From the start, a comprehensible, if necessarily simplified, sense of an extremely complicated moment in history.

    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.

    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.

    This is a dark, often funny walk through Ingmar Bergman turf.

    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.
