  1. It's a superb example of the genre of the self-expressive documentary.

    Has the edge of black comedy that defines Maclean's sensibility, but it also has a mature new sweetness. And it's certainly one of the best films about the life of an addict since "Drugstore Cowboy."
  2. The film has smarts, but what really makes it fascinating is its huge heart...and the film soars because of that.
  3. A gorgeous dreamscape of a movie...one of the most exhilarating experiences of pure cinema that will be offered this year.
  4. One of the best films of this year...unlike anything you've seen on the big screen.
  5. It makes us realize, suddenly, and with immense regret, what the rest of contemporary cinema so sorely lacks.

  6. Sweet and hilarious, a classic crowd-pleaser which elevates rather than eviscerates the homespun eccentrics who make up its cast of characters.
  7. It simultaneously wows you with the stark beauty of its images, a beauty that leads to another, related kind of truth that is equally crucial. It's not to be missed.
  8. A delight to the eye, ear, and mind

    More than a family saga, this is a family meditation.

    Don't miss it.

    A multi-layered, experimental film, a film about storytelling, but the beauty of it is that it transcends the story at its center while still celebrating the virtues of a tale well-told.
  9. This is a beautiful, surprisingly uplifting movie, made by someone who actually understands people.
  10. L.A. Confidential is at the same time his (Hanson) most personal movie and Hollywood filmmaking at its best.

  11. Everything clicks here.
  12. Entertaining as it often is, Outside Providence feels as if it were a collection of installments from an unusually raunchy television series.
  13. Levinson is at the top of his game with Liberty Heights, his instincts acutely cinematic, his purpose clear.
  14. An exquisite trio.
  15. One of the best films seen in many years about the mysterious workings of time and memory.

    Will test your powers of attention. The effort is worth every minute.

  16. A rich and challenging variation on the serial-killer genre.
  17. Audiences willing to wade knee deep in the muck and mire of the human abyss are advised to seek out Humanité at the local arthouse.
  18. Kat's English assignment, which provides the movie's title, is a sweet finish to an entertaining movie -- and makes 10 Things I Hate About You quite likable.

  19. It's as wise and funny and revealing as anything ever created by Mike Nichols and Elaine May.

  20. An unleashed Raimi may be a more exciting moviemaker, but there's something to be said for the virtues of a good story well told, which describes A Simple Plan down to its last shivery snowflake.
    • Film.com
  21. What's best about the film is not the hot romance, but the coldness that lies at its heart.
    • Film.com
  22. Certainly one of his (Scorsese's) most profound works.
  23. The fact that this film, so sensitive to woman's plight, was made by a man is perhaps cause for a little hope.
  24. A strange and lovely combination of cinematic nostalgia and offbeat (gay) love story.
    • Film.com
  25. We marvel at the almost perfect realization of a character whom we're not necessarily meant to like.
