  1. The title Terror's Advocate is both a statement of fact and a worrisome understatement in a documentary as slippery as its subject.
  2. Sweet Land is a movie of extraordinary tenderness, in which Reaser and Guinee, using a language of looks, make you happy to think about what love once might have been.
  3. With In Between Days, the filmmaker captures feminine melancholy with rare precision. Find this movie.
  4. Win Win, it turns out, isn't a tale of facile victory. It's a movie about how loss makes everyone do things they'll both defend and regret.
  5. So sharp and dryly urbane in its mod-Brit take on the noir, noir, noir, noir world of gambling, dames, and pulp fiction, it makes higher-profile attempts like ''Rounders'' look blah, blah, blah, blah.
  6. Rarely have two actresses been so effortless in their intimacy.
  7. Lasse Hallström calms Irving's typically busy 1985 best-seller with a balm of the Swedish director's typically soothing lyricism.
  8. Leconte (''Ridicule'') gives his heart to the luck of romance, to the dream state visual style of Fellini, and, most lyrically, to the passion of the dagger point swoon.
  9. Dazzling psychological cat-and-mouse drama.
  10. When we finally see the time-lapse images his cameras took, they're awesome and terrifying - a meltdown out of a poetic horror film.
  11. She's an Everywoman you can believe in, showcased in the kind of deft comedy of feminine passion - where deep despair meets Wilson Phillips - that a great many people have been waiting for. Now that Wiig and company have built it, will they come?
  12. For kids, blessedly unironic by nature until wised up by nurture, the movie is just shiny, funny, and filled with songs.
  13. An Inconvenient Truth can't, of course, reveal a future that is still up to us, but by the time you're done watching, the real question is, Which way on God's green earth would you want to err?
  14. We're given an intimate seat to this wildly democratic - and creepily messianic - spectacle.
  15. The Beat That My Heart Skipped lacks the screw-loose existential vibrance of "Fingers," yet it teases out a romantic underside to the original I never quite knew was there.
  16. As riveting as its title.
  17. Intense, autobiographically based drama.
  18. This is a sensual, psychologically modern costume drama influenced by both "The Godfather" and gals' guides to empowerment.
  19. Has a rowdy, jumpin'-jive vivacity. It's not quite as emotionally rounded as ''Shrek'' was... but it's got heart and delirium in equal doses, as well as a firecracker rhythm all its own.
  20. "Old Boy's" vivid star Choi Min-sik plays a terrible schoolteacher -- yet another damned soul in Park's inflammatory, inimitable movie inventory of hell on earth.
  21. Enchanted is festooned with extravagant set pieces -- there's a great number in praise of romantic gestures, and a ballroom scene to make even grown-up girls swoon.
  22. Fans will gorge on this deft, year-by-year portrait of the ultimate enduring cult band.
  23. Nader became famous as a "consumer advocate," but as the thrilling first hour of An Unreasonable Man makes clear, that humdrum bureaucratic term didn't do justice to his courage, his vision.
  24. It's a David-and-Goliath tale, full of anger and disturbing accusation, but it's also inspiring.
  25. What the characters in The Witnesses -- and we, the audience -- pay testimony to in André Téchiné's urgent, compassionate, and ultimately optimistic French drama are the toll the epidemic has rung, and the responsibility of the living to choose life.
  26. There have, over the years, been a lot of terrific undersea documentaries, but if you want to know what distinguishes this new one, it comes down to a single word: technology.
  27. The intense interviews and damning statistics (20 percent of all female personnel have experienced sexual assault) do the work of whipping up outrage.
  28. A jolting, artfully made drama set in and around a suburban playground somewhere between "American Beauty" and "In the Bedroom" on America's psychic highway.
  29. The feverishly paced film is hell-bent on making the audience feel like they just snorted a Belushian mountain of blow. You can practically feel your teeth grinding to dust. As with any high, though, it also doesn't know when to stop.
  30. A suspenseful and delightfully creepy French drama.
