  1. Really a perfect family movie.
  2. Not to be overlooked are the film's wealth of fine supporting performances and technical contributions-the always wonderful Emily Mortimer, Martin Ruhe's extraordinary cinematography and Kave Quinn's incisive production design each playing a part in what must be considered one of the very best films of the first half of 2010.
  3. It may take some time but Nicole Holofcener’s latest effort gradually grows on you. Partly it’s her obvious affection for her oddball collection of characters; partly it’s the performances of the likes of Keener and Oliver Platt as her wayward husband.
  4. What makes Forte so funny is that he stalks through the flick cocksure and utterly deadpan.
  5. The entire cast is superb. Crowe's an ideal Robin Hood-born to play the role-he's fully in command but human to the core. He owns it.
  6. This documentary on one of the most universal, photographed, analyzed, opined upon and slavered over human experiences manages to astound.
  7. Uproariously funny.
  8. Veteran British director Ken Loach fields one of his most accessible and lightly-toned offerings to date with this comedy about a football fanatic trying to sort out his life.
  9. What transpires gives fresh meaning to ‘sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll.'
  10. For the small but enthusiastic documentary crowd and the comic's diehard fans, it's a must-see.
  11. There are gaps here and there, but it provides a fascinating introduction to a corner of film history that has gotten too little attention.
  12. This intense and almost operatic Italian family melodrama recalls the best of Douglas Sirk.
  13. Dogtooth will begin to open the door for U.S. specialty audiences to discover Lanthimos as a new master and anticipate his future films.
  14. Resnais' storytelling is in top form. Turning 88 this June, he's an inspiration to us all.
  15. In a crackerjack and very lean 100 minutes, the lithe and physically dynamic Jolie burns up the screen and shows the boys how it's done.
  16. The sweetest runaways you'll ever meet are pre-teens Kylie Lawless (Kelly O'Neill) and Dylan Dunne (Shane Curry).
  17. Frank Ross' newest film, Audrey the Trainwreck, is at once utterly down home and completely philosophical.
  18. A beguiling cross between fiction and non-fiction, Alamar regards the relationship three Mexican males have with the sea.
  19. Some points are driven home over and over again and that repetition robs the doc of a bit of its power, but overall Countdown to Zero is effective and frightening.
  20. Ferrera proves herself to be just as talented in dramatic roles.
  21. Put simply: Scott Pilgrim is a blast! The total package is a wildly comic journey into the head of a true original. If you are under 25 you will find all of it really, really funny.
  22. The Tillman Story illustrates the amazing lengths the Pentagon went to in order to hide the details of that killing.
  23. With the woes of Wall Street constantly in the headlines, Oliver Stone could not have picked a better time to reignite Wall Street.
  24. Will appeal to upscale adult audiences with its mix of gorgeous Chinese locations, splendid dance sequences and compelling personal story.
  25. Likely to resonate with a generation of young people to whom "When Harry Met Sally's" orgasm scene seems downright quaint.
  26. Fan finds the delicate balance between broad socio-political themes and a single family torn between centuries-old traditions and the desire to succeed in the capitalist world.
  27. A whipsmart twist on a particular kind of romantic comedy.
  28. I'm Still Here does leave us with one big question mark: What will Phoenix do next? How will he top such a flamboyant caper?
  29. Ondine is Injected with a heavy dose of magic and has a lot going for it: an endearing performance from star Colin Farrell, Christopher Doyle's evocative cinematography and a captivating-if thin-story.
  30. This is one of those movies in which the lead character is so self-possessed, wise, well spoken and witty, that she sounds far too adult to be a teenager.
