  1. It shows that life is what happens when you're busy making other plans. And how, in case we forget, every age can predict the next.
  2. Don't miss The Fast Runner. If you do, you will deprive yourself of not only one of the most intriguing feature-film projects in decades and enough plain-spoken anthropology for three credits at Harvard, but one of the most flat-out entertaining movies of the year.

  3. Exquisitely moving story.

  4. The new Star Trek is more than a coat of paint on a space-age wagon train. It's an exciting, stellar-yet-earthy blast that successfully blends the hip and the classic.
  5. Among the funniest and most satisfying films I've seen in years.
  6. It's the perfect antidote to overprocessed entertainment, for moviegoers of any age.
  7. A masterpiece? Probably. Ingenious? Absolutely! Unforgettable? I'll see you at the 10th-year anniversary.
  8. The overall result is a romantic comedy that indulges fantasies, calms insecurities (can an ordinary bloke stack up?), and breaks and mends hearts with surgical precision.
  9. Chimpanzee lets everyone feel like a mini-Jane Goodall.
  10. This amazingly beautiful, and amazingly frightening, documentary captures the immediacy of what climate change is doing to the Arctic landscape.
  11. In ferociously intense, chillingly brutal scenes, this bravely innovative, kingsized movie (one should be warned that it runs over three hours) enables one to fully understand why this particular war not only destroyed the hopes and dreams of America’s young men, but why it left so many of them permanently shattered and alienated from society.
  12. A juicy noir stew of amorality that's the best thing since "Chinatown."
  13. Gyllenhaal is charming and makes unexpected choices in her performance, but this is Bridges' show, and he's as Best Actor-worthy as he's ever been.
  14. If a documentary can be both alarming and oddly reassuring, it's the gripping splash of cold cinematic water Racing Extinction.
  15. The story Stiller tells manages to float in a most peculiar, satisfying way.
  16. Strap in, load up and hang on because Mad Max: Fury Road is a freaky, ballsy, phenomenal ride.
  17. The focus in James Ponsoldt’s affecting, intelligent drama is a pair of teenagers, and in them is so much complexity and heart that this casually paced gem feels rich in scope. They’re two of the most carefully created figures on screen this year, and yet their normalness takes us by surprise.
  18. Noah Baumbach’s sensational satirical drama While We’re Young is, finally, a movie for grownups to run out and see.
  19. One of the best movies of the year.
  20. The film’s thoughtful script and astounding craft portray a tragic inner psychological battle.
  21. Universally appealing story that plays as well now as it did on opening day a half-century ago. Maybe better.
  22. Schrader and Nolte are both at the height of their expressive powers in a film that, in its concentration and sobriety, leaves a lasting impression.
  23. Rarely has any film, fictional or documentary, captured the hypnotic effect of voices on the airwaves like this chronicle of Bob Fass.
  24. Silence is a slowly unfolding, deeply thoughtful film about questioning yourself. About questioning authority. About taking stock of where you've failed as a human being, and wondering how you can make amends — to yourself, to others, and to God.

    Each episode of director Leos Carax's film perfectly masters the exact tone of a different genre, finding precisely the saddest moment in each of its vignettes.
  25. Based on a true story, the movie has abundant humor and uplift - but it's a heartbreaker of extraordinary dimension.
  26. A film that is both deceptively modest and deeply resonant.
  27. The picture is real, full of vitality and of so much human waywardness and nobility of spirit that it tears your heart out in sympathy with its tender and tragic passages and makes you want to shout with joy at its hearty humor.
  28. When was the last time you had your mind blown by a movie? Because when Inception ends and the lights come up, you'll be sitting in your seat, staring at the screen, wondering what the hell just happened.
  29. It's a white-knuckler all the way, with most of that tension coming from the smallest facial expressions exchanged in uneasy silence between compatriots who knew what they were getting into, but were nevertheless unprepared for the moral and emotional fallout of their patriotic actions.
