  1. A hilarious and utterly faboo'll be begging for more.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  2. Tucci has crafted a poignant remembrance of a bygone era, and a touching examination of the responsibilities of creativity.
  3. It's the sum of things not spoken, things too painful to express, that's the heart of this quietly moving drama.
  4. An exhilarating and at times operatic film.
  5. Captures the emptiness of small-time lives as evocatively as Peter Bogdonavich's "Last Picture Show."
  6. Might be the most original film of the year.
  7. Dumont's movie has virtually nothing wrong with it -- aside from the fact that it drives people crazy. Take the leap, but expect no answers. Just like life, as they say.
  8. An explosive experience...and you have to love the movie's rabid energy and lust.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  9. Combining a seething physicality with enough weary nobility and tightly checked rage for a dozen wronged heroes, (Crowe) provides the movie's vital center of gravity without looming over his co-stars.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  10. The man (Apted) behind the excellent "7 Up" series has put a human face to science, making the seemingly abstruse both accessible and easily relatable.
    • Mr. Showbiz
  11. It's funny. Really funny.
    • 66 Metascore

    A smart, sometimes pissingly funny romantic comedy that is also oddly unmoving and predictable in spots.
  12. This is certainly the best studio movie of the new year to date, and Douglas might even be remembered at next year's Oscars.
  13. The plot that propels them (Pitt, Roberts) along separate story lines is both unusually character-driven and a hoot.
  14. Has such perfect pitch in small matters that, as it builds, it proves no less capable in tackling bigger issues--and what begin as chuckles become deep belly laughs.
  15. Topsy-Turvy is flawless, borne along by a savagely witty screenplay that Leigh directs like the gears of a clock.
  16. Lacks scope and doesn't resonate grandly as a portrait of an American underbelly like Morris' earlier works do. But it still packs a wallop.
  17. Easily the best millennial movie, Don McKellar's Last Night is also the only one to use the idea of apocalyptic end-time as a vehicle to explore the absurdity of human desire.
