  1. A fascinating, strangely funny and remarkable film about events so incredible you'll likely have a hard time believing what you see onscreen.
  2. This revved-up movie version offers a perfect mix of non-stop thrills and clever dialogue, mixed with an engagingly light touch. Nobody is taking anything too seriously here, and that's the fun of it.
  3. Stylish, globe hopping, action-packed comedy that starts at full blast and never lets up.
  4. An entomologist's delight, Jessica Oreck's movie about Japan's insect mania is worth watching even if you're repulsed by creepy-crawlers.
  5. The Father of My Children is a protean charmer just like Grégoire Canvel, the title character modeled on the late Humbert Balsan.
  6. In his densely constructed and pretty damn brilliant film The Juche Idea, Finn takes aim at North Korean president Kim Jong-il's theories on cinema and how its ultimate purpose is to advance political ideology and party loyalty.
  7. Educational rather than entertaining.
  8. While it isn't the only adaptation to give flesh (or ink) to Cleary's indomitable misfit, it's the most accessible retelling to date.
  9. Eclipse has its cheesecake and eats it, too.
  10. Predators is sometimes silly and hardly original, but it delivers the thrills.
  11. Using clips from home movies, newsreels and public access TV, Davis does a heroic job of bringing the edgy and diffuse mixed-media New York art scene of the '80s back to life.
  12. Tirador ’s frenetic style and locale will remind many viewers of Fernando Meirelles’ much-admired City of God.
  13. Fans of "Train of Life" will undoubtedly embrace the picture's similarly ragtag collection of clever, lovable misfits.
  14. The most compelling thing about it is what it captures: a snapshot of America's ongoing and endless cultural war at a moment when things begin to shift.
  15. An uplifting, high energy documentary.
  16. An odd little film that aims only to please itself.
  17. It's funny, clever, touching and real.
  18. Just when we thought there were no new twists to the story of the Warsaw Ghetto comes this documentary: focused, sorrowful and revelatory.
  19. This comic fantasy will delight kids and parents alike.
  20. How often can you see Cheech Marin nailed to a cross or Lindsay Lohan in a threesome with Trejo and the actress playing her mother?
  21. Bottom line: It's a good one, fresh, funny and vintage Woody.
  22. The best parts of Sparling's script play like an absurdist snuff film.
  23. Like Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There"-which never once came out and said the name "Bob Dylan"-Nowhere Boy bites its tongue and refuses to say "The Beatles."
  24. The script, from first time screenwriters Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson, takes a predictable premise and gives it surprising depth.
  25. Although its claims about Hildegard's modernity and relevancy should be taken with a grain of salt, one readily imagines Vision attracting a cross-section of the curious, not limited to feminist cinephiles and true believers.

    Wiseman's approach will surprise none of his veteran viewers: no voiceover, no real narrative, just a pure evocation of a place that acts both as a specific site and a microcosm of a larger sphere.
  26. Bhutto's story is an epic one, and Hernandez and O'Hara prove up to the task.
  27. In its small moments, say when Walhberg sighs that his robe misspells "Micky," The Fighter feels clued-in to the very small, very tough world of a man trying to make his way out of his block-and after getting to know his family, you want to help him pack his bags.
  28. This oddball tale of life on a snowy mountainside is consistently upbeat and surprising, with action intensity that stays sturdily at "Goonies" level.
  29. A clearly personal effort, Somewhere demonstrates Coppola's featherweight touch with big subjects like identity and human connection.
