  1. We have an authentic Old Master working in our midst, and Gosford Park will at the very least remind everyone how masterful a helmsman Altman can be.
  2. You’re unlikely to come across a more powerful film this year.
  3. 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.
  4. The combination of pen, ink and geopolitical strife have yet to yield anything quite like it.
  5. There isn't another American screen actor who could have given this performance, not one who so deftly could have navigated the razor's edge separating the wiseacre and the wise.

    von Donnersmarck creates a milieu so realistic that the attention-worthy setting becomes just a backdrop, while an intricate tale, as suspenseful as it is humanistic, takes over.
  6. 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.

    Pre the events of 9/11, the film might have simply been an entertaining, high risk tale of a death-defying feat related in both interviews, archival footage and photos and Marsh's usual meticulous and creative re-enactment vignettes. Post 9/11 you find yourself marveling that a man in far away France became smitten with the twin towers long before they became the target of terrorist attacks.
  7. Borat isn't just one of the funniest movies of the year, it might be one of the funniest movies of all time.
  8. No End In Sight is the most important film of the year thus far and, more significantly, the most comprehensive, clear-eyed account of the Iraq debacle and the arrogance behind it that we have.

    Fresh, heartfelt and ultimately heartbreaking in its honest portrayal of a modern relationship.
  9. Portraying the same 1945 confrontation from the vantage point of the Japanese was an inspired idea. Unfortunately, the movie it inspired is something of a letdown.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A film of limited production values, a low-quality picture and the occasional flubbed camera move. But it makes up for these flaws with sharp observations, compelling characters and a great collection of music.

    The story is set in real world Mexico, not a cleaned-up movie world simulacrum.

    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.
  10. This is brilliant filmmaking.
  11. Grade A propaganda of the first order.

    Julie Christie gives a fabulous performance of mysterious, unclear depth as Fiona.
  12. There’s no question here that moviegoers will be treated to a completely enveloping, three-hour vacation from reality.

    Up
    After a strong takeoff, the film lands on dead grounds.
  13. Clearly, Gomorrah is supposed to represent the best of today’s European cinema...and if this is the best, I would hate to imagine the worst! Gomorrah is a boring mess focusing on how the mob in today’s Naples has its tentacles stretched far and wide
  14. Maybe if PETA tried being funny instead of comparing eating meat to the Holocaust, they’d have a bigger following.
  15. Isn’t really about drugs. It’s about what motivates people to make hard choices. However, deciding whether or not to view this unique glimpse into a seldom seen world should be easy. It’s a must-see.
  16. Simultaneously offers priceless insight into the nation's past and a worrisome take on the future.
  17. This much-ballyhooed gay cowboy melodrama is an inert disappointment.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Murderball isn't a documentary played in the key of those Olympics stories that inspire you with sugary drivel, although it is ultimately inspiring.
  18. The results are by turns fascinating, horrifying, and maddening.
  19. Little more than a travelogue designed to show off the grandeur of the Hermitage, with the silly actors in fancy costumes getting in the way of the paintings and sculptures on display.
    • 86 Metascore

    Absolutely perfect family entertainment for anyone over the age of ten. It is a celebration of not just the usual triumph of the human spirit, but a celebration of the human experience.
  20. To me, Say Anything is without a shadow of a doubt the most rewarding, funny, and likable romance of the last twenty years. It heralds the decency of romantic love against the gears of a cold, grinding mechanical world.
