  1. Offers a remarkable tribute to one of the few people who genuinely deserves to be known as a pioneer of filmmaking. In the genre of films about films, In the Mirror of Maya Deren is among the best.
  2. With Tokyo Sonata, Kurosawa shows that he has quite the flair for dry humor and peppers this film with just the perfect amount.
  3. Clooney has littered his film with such a high quantity of mistakes that it is hard to know where exactly to begin finding fault.
  4. It's the journey that offers the most enjoyment. Well, that and the beauty pageant climax, which I won't spoil here, but is one of the funniest scenes from film in recent memory.
  5. An extraordinary achievement on all possible levels.

    Where Minority Report succeeds is by dishing up a little bit of everything – to see no one leaves the theater disgruntled. There are helpings of science fiction marvel, there’s some interminable tension and a real human story underneath it all. The specials effects are damn impressive to boot.

    Fails to add anything of substance to the history that it portrays.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The film goes beyond a nature movie with excellent photography and the determination of the animals it documents.
  6. Provides lethal evidence of what becomes of those who deposit their sincerity into the command of a religious lunatic.
  7. Meticulous in its descriptions of well-intended individuals caught up in these ferocious waves of street crime.

    Shot in the manner of a grueling horror picture, with jittery edits to half-remembered traumas and glistening close-ups on the faces of monsters.
  8. The film presents the Rwandans in the worst possible way: venal, corrupt, vicious, stupid, barbaric and completely incapable of governing themselves. Honestly, I've seen more intelligent and sympathetic depictions of Africans in Tarzan movies.
  9. Any embedded message ultimately pales in importance to moving and understated story of love.
  10. It is Condon's adroit handling of the subject matter and the caliber of performances within that carry it above the norm.
  11. The film is a wonder and a joy to watch on any number of levels.
  12. While the images presented here are peerless, James Nachtwey is a fascinating individual and it is a shame we cannot learn more about the man behind these extraordinary images.

    Possibly the most European of major American directors, Jim Jarmusch wears his influences on his sleeve and makes no bones about it.
  13. Smartly edited, utterly engrossing, and as intelligent an examination of American race relations as I've seen.
  14. What Flags of Our Fathers is not, however, is moving, evocative, or very unique.

    Reprise is an energetic romp through creative frustration, stagnant relationships, the fear of change and romance-fueled insanity.
  15. I loved it. I'm glad it was made...Film Threat's association with Flynt would sometimes bring gasps of outrage or phones slammed down in disgust. Now, it brings curiosity and even admiration. Kinda weird, huh?

    Once again, the Coens' tale of the damned is damn funny.

    As Leth overcomes each obstacle set before him, the film becomes a work of extraordinary artistry, intellectual exhilaration, emotional uplift, and outright affection.

    Despite my ignorance of Hong Kong, I'm convinced that Iron Monkey could be the best, most entertaining martial arts film I may ever see.
  16. As comic book movies go, Iron Man is a solid entry. Downey and company help drag Favreau out of the genre holes he digs, making for a decent experience.
  17. Tarzan is a blast for both kids and grownups like myself and gets my recommendation.

    Mamet loves to cast his current wives in lead roles -- Whatever you may feel about Mamet's writing, he has an uncanny knack for marrying mediocre actresses.
  18. Here's the sliver of hope: In contrast to everything we've been told, the people who run Al Jazeera turn out to be decent and level headed.
  19. Offers an unflinching look at the effects of a terminal diagnosis, not just on the victim, but on everyone around him.
  20. Slow in places, but the feeling of foreboding you’ll take away from it is undeniable.
