    Whenever Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon resorts to flying fists or soaring sword battles, the Force is definitely with it.

    The results are both savagely funny and poignant for anyone who's ever had a friendship that felt like their only connection to the outside world.

    Flock (don't walk) to the theater to see Chicken Run.

    A technologically marvelous animated movie that's just as funny and inventive as the first, but also more emotionally engaging than most live-action films. This is clearly a sequel in name only.

    The most heartfelt tribute to women -- specifically, actresses -- he's (Almodovar) ever made.

    42 Up is filled with truth and poignancy as these people reflect on their first half of their lives, their goals, ambitions, and how they, for the most part, succeeded in reinventing them.

    Lynch's faith in the kindness of human nature has been renewed, yet thankfully he's never maudlin. Instead, he wins over our emotions with the film's understated beauty.

    It's the funniest, saddest performance of the year in a film of uncompromising wit and heart.

    Traffic is a riveting, semi-documentary drama, and yet calling it that is a disservice to just how suspenseful and stylish an entertainment it is.

    It's such a sensory experience; in its best moments, the film washes over you like a fever dream.

    It's the sum of things not spoken, things too painful to express, that's the heart of this quietly moving drama.

    That rarest of independent films -- it's risky and exciting.

    Stomps the summer movie competition with heart and humor.

    A must-see for avid fans and a welcome primer for nascent hip-shakers everywhere.

    Together is unabashedly about people who need people. The film's satiric skewering of '70s liberalism works because it feels emotionally authentic.

    Though unflinching in its savagery, Amores Perros is always compulsive viewing.
    • 83 Metascore

    Election is a bracingly intelligent adult comedy that shrewdly captures adolescence.

    Russell has combined pathos, terror, and black comedy with a dollop of Hollywood feel-good patriotism to make one of the best studio efforts this year.

    • 88 Kevin Maynard
    Especially timely in light of the current escalation in Palestinian-Israeli aggressions, but this is one sad story that would pack a staggering punch in any political climate.

    There are only a handful of great music documentaries ... but Temple's film deserves a place in the canon.

    Cho is raw, uncensored, and side-splittingly hilarious.

    Nolan's engrossing, backwards-ticking noir will run you so thoroughly in circles that you'll need to see it at least twice for maximum enjoyment.

    A sentimental slice of 1950s Italian-American life that doesn't soft-pedal its characters' simmering prejudices within their insulated community, or pander to their dreams of getting out.

    It's a pleasure to watch these unhurried, character-driven vignettes when such great actors are anchoring them.

    A funny, frenetic, and often quite touching microcosm of the Big Apple life itself, essayed by a pitch-perfect cast and boasting authentic urban flavors.

    Proudly wears its heart on its sleeve, but it never becomes so swoony that you'll reach for your hanky.

    Even if it sometimes skips, it's consistently wittier and more idiosyncratic that most studio movies.

    Though frequently brutal and off-putting, Beautiful People is a must-see.

    Faithless, filmed mostly during Sweden's endless winter, will chill you to the bone.

    A fitting tribute to these displaced children because it so simply and elegantly personalizes their place in the most horrific chapter of 20th-century history.
