  1. Cantet weaves a dark, disturbing story of hedonism, casual racism and the lethal consequences of self-indulgence in his superb drama Heading South.
  2. A symphony of small gestures, throwaway glances, brief exchanges of unexpected observation and silences which actually say more than pages of dialogue.
  3. Theaters showing Mad Cowgirl should install seatbelts, because audiences are in for the ultimate wild ride.
  4. The idea of a gay version of "American Pie" might not seem too tasty, but Another Gay Movie offers a fabulous surprise in not only matching that rude boy classic's unapologetic rude humor but by establishing its own identity as a genuinely funny and often touching coming of age comedy.

    This is quite possibly the best Canadian film of all time.
  5. The film is one chillingly authentic scene after another... In the end it's more of a war movie than "Saving Private Ryan" ever was.
  6. Whereas "Cuckoo’s Nest" is a brilliantly over-the-top accomplishment, The Passenger is more brilliant with the most effortless underplaying one can ever hope to witness on screen.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Fresh, heartfelt and ultimately heartbreaking in its honest portrayal of a modern relationship.
  7. There are no boring, expository sequences; no depressing, grown-up politics. Instead, Rodriguez gifts us with a kaleidoscope of energy and invention.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Compulsory viewing for anyone with the slightest interest in rock history or the power of celebrity.
  8. I can't rave about this film enough -- this is passionate filmmaking at its best. One of the best foreign films, heck, one of the best films I have seen this year -- go see it!
  9. This amazing tour-de-force presents Huppert in a role, which is equal parts abrasive and vulnerable, exasperating and pathetic, monstrous and saintly.

    The Beastie Boys have delivered the ultimate gift to their fans and the title couldn't be more perfect.
    • 73 Metascore

    What Haynes has essentially done is create a film that is a Bob Dylan song, one of his best.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is the purest of American narratives, and this, indeed, is one of our finest storytellers.
  10. Eastwood tells the story at a pace well under the Hollywood speed limit, tosses in details so beguiling they seem about to sprout into motion pictures of their own and bathes his subjects in shadows as lovely as those in any Rembrandt.
  11. One of the most towering and extraordinary films to grace the screen.
  12. Rich with wonderful music and images.
  13. Should become required viewing for all troubled youth, their uncertain parents, the military establishment and their detractors or supporters.

    See this film and laugh your ass off, and in between your tears of joy learn the true cause of racial and ethnic division.
  14. I've already seen at least 20 documentaries this year. They've left me amused, sad, informed, bored, pissed-off, whatever. I'm willing to bet, though, that I don't see another this year as richly entertaining or as cathartic as The Kid Stays in the Picture. Is it really that good? You better believe it.
  15. Eddie Murphy does everything in this movie successfully. Coming To America remains his most personal work and a great argument that a movie can be decent and wholesome despite having enough profanity to make Bill Cosby lose sleep. A perfect argument for Eddie Murphy as decent guy even without the fame and fortune. Not that he's planning on giving it back though.
  16. Kung Fu Hustle is something you rarely encounter in theaters: a genuinely original comedy.
    • 57 Metascore

    Racism, teen sex, and war are all hot button issues. When you are a young person these things can seem new and confusing. In Alan Ball’s genius Towelhead, all of those above mentioned subjects go hand-in-hand in a truly wonderful cinematic experience.
    • 65 Metascore

    Ultimately, Smith finally achieves that perfect balance between humor and heart that he's been dancing towards with all his films.
  17. Take the safety off of the comedy Magnum called Happiness and put the barrel in your mouth. You'll laugh your ass off as it takes off the back of your head...It could be the best film of the year. At the very least, I'll never forget it.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Blends classic elements of fantasy, teen-angst and coming-of-age tales to create a genre all its own. And through it all, the movie is undeniably wholesome.
    • 64 Metascore

    Laugh hard, laugh long, but just laugh at true greatness. Parker and Stone have done it again, multiplied millions of times.
  18. If the state government in Massachusetts refuses to acknowledge its execution of innocent men, then at least this compelling and powerful production can serve as a graceful elegy to the doomed men who were murdered by their adopted homeland.
  19. Among the finest films made in the Middle East. This small, subtle gem offers a vivid portrait of life in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, presenting its message with an intelligence and vibrancy that celebrates the human spirit in an environment where humanity is routinely crushed and assaulted.
