  1. So just do yourself a favor, get out there and see Ong Bak. You’ll leave the theater bruised and battered, but you'll be happy about it.
  2. Quite simply, House of Flying Daggers is a film that sets several new standards for production and entertainment values. It is a wild riot of color, music, passion, action, mystery, pure old-fashioned thrills and even dancing.
  3. 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.
  4. The result is a mature, graceful and extraordinary accomplishment.
  5. Should become required viewing for all troubled youth, their uncertain parents, the military establishment and their detractors or supporters.

    Masculine, Feminine could be viewed as Godard's reaction to his own success and the state of the world around him.
  6. This is an excellent movie -- by all means, flock to it!
  7. As Hitler, Bruno Ganz ignites the screen with every appearance.
  8. A symphony of small gestures, throwaway glances, brief exchanges of unexpected observation and silences which actually say more than pages of dialogue.
  9. Kung Fu Hustle is something you rarely encounter in theaters: a genuinely original comedy.
  10. Provocative and poignant.
  11. One could literally milk a thesaurus in trying to find the right words to lavish on Saraband: brilliant, towering, majestic, challenging, remarkable.
  12. Put simply, Mind Game is a mind-blowing experience.
  13. Paltrow gives the performance of the year, and perhaps of her career, in this extraordinary and powerful dissection of genius, jealousy, madness and serenity.

    This is definitely not your typical Cronenberg. No matter if you either love his cinematic oddities, or if you’re put off by them, watching A History of Violence would prove beneficial. It’s no doubt one of the best films of the year.

    One of the most beautifully stark, yet provocative and powerful films of 2005 has to be Capote. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who gives his finest screen performance to date, literally becomes Truman Capote through effete mannerism, nasaly voice & self-absorbed tone.
  14. The result is crisp, brutal and utterly inspirational.
  15. 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.
  16. I would like to praise My Big Fat Independent Movie for achieving something that most independently-produced comedies fail to do: it creates laughs.

    Every single performance is the result of a cast that has gone to the far reaches of acting ability and even exceeded them.
  17. One of the greatest art documentaries ever made. Through an imaginative mixture of rare footage, audio recordings and contemporary interviews with the living legends of modern art, Rosen has created a cinematic portrait which is, in itself, a work of art.

    The Beastie Boys have delivered the ultimate gift to their fans and the title couldn't be more perfect.
  18. A tough sit, but it attracts more than repels you. It commands your attention. Once it lands its hooks in you, there's no tearing away.
  19. You’re unlikely to come across a more powerful film this year.
  20. Cantet weaves a dark, disturbing story of hedonism, casual racism and the lethal consequences of self-indulgence in his superb drama Heading South.
  21. Theaters showing Mad Cowgirl should install seatbelts, because audiences are in for the ultimate wild ride.

    Ultimately, Smith finally achieves that perfect balance between humor and heart that he's been dancing towards with all his films.
  22. 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.
  23. It's vital that everyone who cares about film see this documentary.
  24. It is not only the year's best documentary, but it is also among the finest films ever made about religion.
