    You may have doubts about which side to choose, but there's no doubt about this mind-bender. It'll pin you to your seat.

    A lifetime in movies runs through this prime vintage Eastwood performance. You can't take your eyes off him. The no-frills, no-bull Gran Torino made my day.

    Che
    Che looks dazzling, whether the camera is weaving through a battle or trying to bore into Che's haunted soul. Del Toro stands up to Soderbergh's relentless scrutiny. As for the movie, it's a reward to audiences eager to break from the play-it-safe pack. Game on.

    DiCaprio is in peak form, bringing layers of buried emotion to a defeated man. And the glorious Winslet defines what makes an actress great, blazing commitment to a character and the range to make every nuance felt.

    You watch The Wrestler (with a superb title song from Bruce Springsteen) in a state of pure exhilaration. A great actor in a great movie will do that to you.

    Fierce, funny and moving, The Class graduates with honors. It's unmissable.

    Get ready to be knocked for a loop.

    So fasten your seat belts for Gomorrah, just snubbed in the wussy Oscar race for Best Foreign Film (so you know it's dynamite).

    The Hangover ain't art, but Phillips has shaped the hardcore hilarity into the summer party movie of all our twisted dreams.

    The result is raw and riveting.

    Want to find the heart of rock & roll? You can hear it thundering in Anvil.

    You won't know what hit you after watching Tyson. This power punch to the gut is one of the best movies of any kind this year.

    Writer-director Olivier Assayas crafts a near perfect blend of humor and heartbreak, a lyrical masterwork that measures loss in terms practical and evanescent.

    This baby has the stuff to end the movie summer on a note of dazzle and distinction.

    A different kind of love story: an honest one that takes a piece out of you.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 88 Peter Travers
    It's the work of a major talent. Apatow scores by crafting the film equivalent of a stand-up routine that encompasses the joy, pain, anger, loneliness and aching doubt that go into making an audience laugh.

    Here's the Iraq War movie for those who don't like Iraq War movies.

    Rudolph, a comic force on "SNL," can speak volumes with the tilt of an eyebrow. She and Krasinski, of "The Office," are absolutely extraordinary. Ditto the film, which sneaks up and floors you.

    Public Enemies comes at you like Dillinger did: all of a sudden. It's movie dynamite.

    Eating can be one dangerous business. Don't take another bite till you see Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., an essential, indelible documentary that is scarier than anything in the last five Saw horror shows.

    Moon is a potent provocation that relies on ideas instead of computer tricks to stir up excitement.

    You'll hoot and holler as it strips down its targets and sticks it to them, hardcore. Baron Cohen is the pure, untamed id of movie comedy.

    There is devilish fun in this look into 1990s white-collar crime. But the jokes are the kind you choke on.

    In this haunting portrait of America as no country for old men or young, Hillcoat -- through the artistry of Mortensen and Smit-McPhee -- carries the fire of our shared humanity and lets it burn bright and true.

    DiCaprio, in his most haunting and emotionally complex performance yet, is the vessel Scorsese uses to lead us through the film’s laby­rinth.

    Claireece "Precious" Jones, played by Gabourey Sidibe, 24, in an astounding debut that brims with grit and amazing grace.
