    Stunningly photographed, largely with a hand-held camera, by Rodrigo Prieto (another member of the "Amores Perros" team) on gritty locations in Memphis and Albuquerque, 21 Grams is also a visual tour de force - and a rare Hollywood product depicting class differences with any kind of honesty.

    Confirms Leigh's reputation as one of the world's master filmmakers - and showcases Staunton as one of its great actresses.

    Extremely unsettling and thought- provoking.

    Quirkily likable comedy-drama about a family trying to coping with loss, contains three of the best performances you're likely to see in an American movie this year.

    Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan are superb as the couple, who use the occasion to drop bombs on each other.

    The best thing Baldwin has done in years, and a triumph of low-budget storytelling by a director to watch.

    You won’t see a better performance by an actress on film this year than Julianne Moore as a linguistics professor struggling to hold onto her personality after a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s in the unforgettable drama Still Alice.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Chico and Rita beguiles first and foremost as a bebop romance that evokes a bygone era as well as, or maybe even better than, "The Artist."
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Isn't quite as accessible or as deeply moving as his masterpiece, "All About My Mother." It's a tad too self-consciously a work of art for that. But it's still a must-see for anyone who's halfway serious about film.

    Vigorously played as a young man by Chris Pine, Kirk is a brilliant, sports-car driving, bar-brawling rebel who is finally shamed into joining Starfleet Academy.

    This movie sends you into the night thinking, maybe even a little afraid. Bravo, Mr. Fincher.

    Hilarious sweet and sour David Mamet comedy.

    Cannily weaving cross-cultural comedy with we-can-do-it humor in the spirit of "The Full Monty," the film builds to a rousing climax.

    Is torture ever justifiable? A twisty, compelling, brilliantly acted (if sometimes difficult to watch) thriller, Prisoners, asks this question not in the usual contemporary context — anti-terrorism — but instead as a gruesome option deployed as a response to every parent’s worst nightmare.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    This superb documentary about the Catholic Church's worst pedophile scandal is in many ways far scarier than any fiction.

    • 88 Lou Lumenick
    Director Paul Greengrass - who directed the superb "United 93" between the second and third "Bourne" installments - knows how to stage and edit bravura action sequences, generating almost unbearable suspense while deploying a superb cast.

    As much a study of prehistoric art as archaeology, this documentary brings in experts to speculate about the mysterious artists who made these paintings, some quite elaborate and others intriguingly abstract.
