  1. An exquisitely crafted Civil War epic that combines the epic romantic sweep of "Gone With the Wind" with a more intimate voice that speaks eloquently to the war-weary nation of today.
  2. Ray
    Contains large helpings of Hollywood schmaltz, stereotype and clich‚, but it's also pretty impossible to resist.
  3. Rarely since the tale of the Corleones has a movie presented such a compelling, sympathetic portrait of a criminal lowlife.

  4. Combining a thoughtful script with splendid acting -- especially by Sansa -- Bellocchio has fashioned a tense thriller that is both understated and powerful.
  5. One funk-tastic musical biopic.
  6. The faint of heart might want to leave early. If you elect to stay, remember: You were warned.
  7. Werner Herzog looks at the death penalty in Into the Abyss, and as is almost always the case, to look through his eyes is to marvel.
  8. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and the Marquis de Sade (interesting combination, no?).
  9. Drawing inspiration from anime and vintage Looney Toons, this beautifully drafted, offbeat charmer is hip, funny - and a bona fide heart tugger for the whole family.
  10. The scariest, creepiest and most elegantly filmed horror movie I've seen in years - it positively drives a stake through the competition.
  11. You can tell this is a smart take on Hamlet from the first wordless opening shots.
  12. So smooth and satisfying it makes the similar "Ocean's Eleven" look like a game of three-card monte.
  13. The second half offers shot after shot of the people who sat opposite Abramovi - an unexpectedly enthralling record of reactions that range from stark agony to rather phony amusement.
  14. O
    Exceptionally intelligent and powerful contemporary adaptation.
  15. More than a ripped-from-the- headlines drug drama, Maria Full of Grace is like a horror movie made real.
  16. Constantly battling, Hoskins and Dench have terrific chemistry together.
  17. Don't let the quiet, indie stylings of The Place Beyond the Pines fool you. This is a big movie with a lot on its mind. Slowly, it unfolds into a kind of epic.
  18. Tremendously affecting on several levels, In the Bedroom is must-see viewing for anyone who complains Hollywood doesn't make movies for grownups.
  19. Makes the most of its wintry settings and never insults the audience's intelligence -- no mean feat for a family film. It's a real crowd-pleaser.
  20. Coppola works in weird ways, but the real Versailles was so much weirder.

    Polarized world views from the mouths of babes -- unfortunately does little to mitigate this depressing image, but much to humanize both sides.
  21. The most effective moments in Taymor's gorgeous, surprisingly romantic Frida are those that evoke the visual world from which Kahlo's work was formed or the paintings themselves, often using clever animation and other special effects.
  22. There is too much funny here for a movie (even though it continues into the closing credits). Step Brothers should be a TV show.
  23. Easily one of the year's best movies.
  24. Bryan Cranston finally translates his critical acclaim for “Breaking Bad” into an Oscar-caliber performance in darkly comic Trumbo, playing an eloquent, witty screenwriter who bucked the Hollywood blacklist and triumphed.
  25. A modest and charming comedy from Israel.
  26. The final result, shaped by the brilliantly nimble, pitch-perfect direction of Spike Jonze, and blessed by superb acting, is an extraordinarily clever comedy that falters only in the last 20 minutes.
  27. '71
    It’s a rare film that locates viciousness and kindness on both sides of Northern Ireland’s Troubles.
  28. The skillfully acted and directed The Lives of Others is a timely warning about governments that seek to repress dissent.
  29. You're either going to love this film and run out to see everything Majewski has directed, or you're going to be bored silly. I'm hoping for the former.
