    This is the mother lode all action/suspense directors search for and Lee, who usually doesn't work in that genre, has hit it.

    It is more sad-funny than funny-funny, but Jenkins has enough empathy and wit to realize that even the sad parts are, somehow, funny.

    An eloquently shot and closely observed documentary about a poor family in modern-day Indonesia.

    Demonstrating a mastery of the medium that belies his status as a first-time feature filmmaker, writer-director Ali Selim has crafted in Sweet Land a tale of pure Americana that speaks both to the immigrant experience and the nature of love.

    What is lightly sketched in the novel, where much is left to the imagination, blossoms into full-blown, richly detailed life in the movie.

    This is one helluva good movie that craves the eyeballs of as many American high schoolers as it can possibly get.

    Downey plays off his own bad-boy image wonderfully. The writers give him great lines to work with and ditto that for his Girl Friday, Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts, whose own svelte lines cannot be improved on.

    This is a film of terrific selectivity. By focusing on two of the few who did survive the collapse, the film achieves emotional power and an uplifting ending.

    Not since Woody Allen's "Radio Days" has anyone created such a cinematic Valentine to the wonderfully imaginative medium of radio as A Prairie Home Companion.

    Exquisite storytelling, acting and visuals.

    The gorilla is great, the girl terrific, sets are out of this world, creatures icky as hell, and the director clearly does not believe in the word "enough."

    A stunning virtuoso performance by director, cast and crew. This movie knocks you out with an astonishing blend of hyper-realism, visual complexity and powerful themes.

    A mesmerizing, richly nuanced inquiry into Israel's revenge of the Munich massacre of its athletes.

    Transformers is a wet dream for fanboys, with vehicles that whiz and whir into alien robots, spectacular sci-fi stunt chases, glistening military hardware, overheated computer software and brainy, hot girls who love Popular Mechanics.

    In Changeling Eastwood continues to probe uncomfortable subjects to depict the individual and even existential struggle to do what is right.

    A bold film both in its storytelling strategies and its filmmaking logistics.

    To call this movie fascinating is akin to calling the Grand Canyon large.

    Teaming with Depp, his long-time alter ego, Burton makes Sweeney a smoldering dark pit of fury and hate that consumes itself. With his sturdy acting and surprisingly good voice, Depp is a Sweeney Todd for the ages.

    For Christopher Nolan to turn Batman Begins into such a smart, gritty, brooding, visceral experience is astonishing. Truly, Batman does begin again.

    That rare sequel that took its time -- 23 years -- so it not only advances a story but also has something new to say.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Kirk Honeycutt
    A biographical documentary doesn't get any better than this.
    • 72 Metascore

    This is an art film in spades.

    Audiences will eat it up: This is a postmillennial spy-action movie pitched to a large international audience. You hardly need subtitles.

    Haneke echoes the theme of Hitchcock's "Rear Window": Moviemaking is basically an act of voyeurism. We secretly examine people's lives in every movie. But in this one, there is a hidden camera, a movie within the movie as it were, forcing us to observe a character along side a mysterious stranger.

    In a summer of remakes, reboots and sequels comes Inception, easily the most original movie idea in ages.

    Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's final film about the West Memphis Three demonstrates how the first two docs played a role in galvanizing national support to free the wrongly convicted men.

    Thrillers don't get much smarter than The Interpreter.

    It's a long movie that feels short: It grabs you in early scenes, intense though low-key before all hell breaks loose, then keeps you riveted to its mostly male characters.

    The filmmakers were right to believe that a live-action version of this story would have failed to achieve the universality Persepolis does.

    Even a klutz could hardly make a bad movie about these compelling figures. Thankfully though, Guido Santi and Tina Mascara are superb filmmakers, fully alive in their terrific film Chris & Don: A Love Story to all the undercurrents of art, social class, sexual orientation, challenging relationships and, most especially, the touching love story at the heart of their film.
