    You have never seen a movie like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because there has never been a movie like it.

    The breathtaking visual and aural restoration by Coppola and Murch makes the film's original glories even more intense than you remember them.

    Revels in the sensual pleasure of music while capturing brilliantly the tension that grips any theater company before the curtain goes up.

    It ranks among Robert Altman's best work ever, and that its many satisfactions derive in large part from a superbly written screenplay by Julian Fellowes that has no equal this year.

    It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.

    Toy Story had a simpler, stronger story and the advantage of being the first of its kind. But it's quickly apparent that TS2 represents a major step forward in computer-animation artistry.

    The latest episode of this ongoing masterpiece of reality TV -- which every seven years revisits a group of English people first interviewed as 7-year-olds in 1964 -- is every bit as enthralling as the earlier ones.

    A haunting, superbly made film. But it's also an unrelentingly sad and depressing experience.

    Atriumph on almost every level. It is breathtakingly stylish, wonderfully acted and its three interrelated tales of the "war" on drugs are brilliantly structured to form a cohesive, powerful whole.

    Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.

    Rapturously elegant and deeply sexy in a deliciously restrained way. One of the most romantic movies I have ever seen, right up there with "Brief Encounter"and "Casablanca."

    Powerful, provocative and often surprisingly funny, this may be the year's outstanding documentary.

    The final result, shaped by the brilliantly nimble, pitch-perfect direction of Spike Jonze, and blessed by superb acting, is an extraordinarily clever comedy that falters only in the last 20 minutes.

    A terrific work of political and social satire set in a Nebraska high school that has the intelligence of (the less coherent) "Rushmore," while painting a much darker picture of politics and human relationships.

    An extraordinary experience: an original and brilliant combination of comedy, action and sophisticated political comment -- the best American movie of the year thus far.

    A stunning achievement, every bit the equal of the classic moun taineering book which inspired it.

    Isn't just scary, charming and delightfully unpredictable - it's also smarter and subtler than any new movie out there.

    For some reason, the people who make modern musicals don't like to let you watch dancers dance -- there are still too few moments when you get to enjoy choreography from a dancer's hands to her feet.

    This bizarre, original and brilliantly crafted documentary about the Sex Pistols is funny and at times moving -- despite all the ugliness and stupidity it depicts.

    • 81 Metascore

    May be the creepiest and most original horror film since John Carpenter's classic "Halloween."
    • New York Post
    • 80 Metascore

    Magnificent if overlong and oddly structured surfing documentary.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Jonathan Foreman
    Sheer delight. An ensemble comedy-drama that recalls Robert Altman's best work.
    • 76 Metascore

    A visually stunning film.

    It's hard to remember a film that mixes disparate, delicate ingredients with the subtlety and virtuosity of Sofia Coppola's brilliant The Virgin Suicides.

    East Is East is "The Full Monty" of 2000, a fresh, funny and poignant film filled with sparkling performances.

    Gripping, smart and moving, without falling prey to sentimentality, it shows what can be achieved when mainstream filmmakers like Howard and Goldsman are genuinely inspired and determined to be honest.

    • 100 Jonathan Foreman
    Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.

    A remarkable accomplishment. It takes one of the century's vast tragedies...and makes it heart-rendingly real and intimate.

    An ideal antidote to the big-budget bores that studios put out in late summer, The Tao of Steve is a charming, funny and refreshingly smart Gen-X romantic comedy in the tradition of "When Harry Met Sally" - with the bonus of an engagingly laid-back Southwestern flavor.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    An affectionate, often clever and unflaggingly funny satire.
