    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    Bleak, brilliant, and unsparing.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    This is the rare movie that gets you to fall in love with characters you don't even like.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    In E.T., Spielberg proved a herald of the age when moviegoers would make full-time friends with fantasy, but his most special effect was taking us into ourselves.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    It becomes as savage as ''Reservoir Dogs,'' ''The Killing,'' or any of the other dozens of films over which it still casts a shadow.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    Mark Wahlberg, in a star-making performance, has the kind of electric ingenuousness that John Travolta did in "Saturday Night Fever."
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The richest and most satisfying romantic movie of the year. It's really about two great loves at once -- the love of life and of art -- and the way that Shakespeare, like no writer before him, transformed the one into the other.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    A bold, searching, wrenching experience. It may be the most complexly impassioned message movie Hollywood has ever made.

    • 60 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    In this brilliantly sustained climax, Coppola unveils a vision of corruption that embraces the entire world, but he's also reveling in sheer theatrical magic in a way that only a master can.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    An existential chain reaction, yet as remarkable as his cinematic gamesmanship is the way that he traces the anatomy of feeling in Lola.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    Carries so much impacted menace and visual narrative gamesmanship that it brought back some of the excitement I felt nearly a decade ago watching Quentin Tarantino's ''Reservoir Dogs.''
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    Titanic floods you with elemental passion in a way that invites comparison with the original movie spectacles of D.W. Griffith.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    By the time The Crying Game is over, you'll never look at beauty in quite the same way.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    It's a scrumptious and dizzy-spirited lark, a what-the-hell-let's-rob-the-casino flick made with so much wit and brains and dazzle and virtuosity that the sheer speed and cleverness of the caper hits you like a shot of pure oxygen.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    Like David Lynch, Quentin Tarantino, and Paul Thomas Anderson, Solondz revels in ironic pop passion. It's a signature moment when he transforms Air Supply's "All Out of Love" into a geek-love rhapsody.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The movie is pulp, yet it attains a surprising emotional power-especially when Anjelica Huston's Lilly, a survivor who'll do whatever it takes to master her surroundings, is on-screen.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    It would be hard to imagine a movie about drugs, depravity, and all-around bad behavior more electrifying than Trainspotting.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    It's a mad cycle of arrogance and despair, and Bloody Sunday etches it onto your nervous system.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    A beautifully sinister and transfixing entertainment-age daydream.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    An extraordinary film; it may be the most haunting documentary since ''Crumb.''
    • 65 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    A voyeur's delight.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The film is sublime entertainment, at once ticklish and suspenseful, cynical and sincere. By its very existence, Altman's comedy about the death of Hollywood lets you know that movies are still alive and kicking.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The rare Hollywood epic that dares to entertain an audience by engaging the world.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    May be the first movie to fully capture the way that drugs dislocate us from ourselves.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    A haunting and incandescent work of art.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    A work of intimate and wrenching humanity.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    A movie of staggering virtuosity and raw lyric power, a masterpiece of terror, chaos, blood, and courage.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    Spielberg restages the Holocaust with an existential vividness unprecedented in any nondocumentary film: He makes us feel as if we're living right inside the 20th century's darkest-and most defining-episode.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The first animated feature produced entirely on computer is a magically witty and humane entertainment, a hellzapoppin fairy tale about a roomful of suburban toys who come to life when humans aren't around.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The movie is so hilariously sly about something so fetishistically trivial that at times it appears to take in an entire culture through a lens made of cheese.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Owen Gleiberman
    The most excitingly original movie of the year.
