  1. The movie on its own is great, but with this music it's sublime.

    It's irresistible.
  2. It makes us realize, suddenly, and with immense regret, what the rest of contemporary cinema so sorely lacks.

    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.
  3. Though a little long, the film takes us right inside both the creative impulse and the margins of American life. Its triumph is to show those two things as being deeply, wonderfully connected.
  4. This is vintage Allen, his powers intact after a string of increasingly cranky, creaky films in the last few years.
  5. Harron's adaptation of Ellis's novel is brilliant, probably better than the book itself.
  6. I spent the bulk of Paradise Love mimicking Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such a disturbing film.
  7. Here is a pitch-black psycho-horror-comedy to restore one’s faith in the “What the eff did I just watch?” genre.
  8. A dark film that raises more questions than it answers -- and it's meant to.
  9. 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.
  10. The film is so engaging because it's so damn funny.
  11. He (Anderson) simply doesn't allow for dull moments, and his gifts for irony and showmanship are clearly appreciated by a collection of actors who have rarely been better.
  12. Little Voice is that rarity, a filmed adaptation of a stage play that actually works.
  13. A terrific piece of neo-realistic filmmaking.
  14. Serkis’ Caesar gets more than his fair share of rip-snortin’ badass moments. He’s arguably the finest leader of men we’ve seen on screen since “Lincoln.”
  15. Sweet and hilarious, a classic crowd-pleaser which elevates rather than eviscerates the homespun eccentrics who make up its cast of characters.
  16. The extent to which Black and Louiso help make this film terribly witty and caustic and worth every minute of its almost two-hour running time is immeasurable.

    Funny, expansive, and a delight to spend company with.
  17. Director Gary Winick ("Sweet Nothing") ingeniously complements Draper's layered approach by modulating the film's energy in fascinating ways.
  18. Entertaining as it often is, Outside Providence feels as if it were a collection of installments from an unusually raunchy television series.
  19. 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.
  20. Subtle, strange, off-putting, fascinating.
  21. So meticulously acted that you feel you're reading the characters' minds.
  22. Sure to become a classic; it taps into the fury of being a drone with a deeply knowing precision.
  23. A superb tearjerker in between beautiful bluegrass ballads.
  24. While this is arguably Greengrass’ best film, it’s almost certainly his most urgent.
  25. Throughout the picture you understand the miracle and good fortune of finding love, and recognize the great changes in tolerance American society is currently (albeit slowly) undergoing.
  26. Listen Up Philip is big, sprawling and tortured, if a little lacking in focus – while funny in parts, it isn’t really a comedy.
  27. Boasting a compelling cast of characters, Wasteland” is a very smooth feature film debut from director Rowan Athale, and one that invites repeat viewings.
