  1. The sweet script, crisp direction and a delightful performance by Leila Hatami, as the sad-eyed wife, should put Deserted Station on your must-see list.
  2. One of the year's best.
  3. One of the year's best.
  4. East Is East is "The Full Monty" of 2000, a fresh, funny and poignant film filled with sparkling performances.
  5. You can tell this is a smart take on Hamlet from the first wordless opening shots.
  6. Woody Allen's most purely entertaining film in years.
  7. In-depth performances by De Niro and Gooding Jr. provide the oxygen for this extremely shipshape biopic.
  8. I'm not generally a huge fan of movies with two-or three-person casts -- they tend to resemble filmed plays -- but The Business of Strangers is a knockout.
  9. You don't have to know Chile's bloody history to be moved by the poignant new film Machuca, the first movie made by a Chilean about the country's 1973 military coup.
  10. An intoxicating, heartbreaking Turkish-German drama that's already won a slew of awards from international film festivals.
  11. Kore-eda presents the deeply moving story in a documentary style that is both gentle and compelling.
  12. It's the well-wrought details that explain, perhaps better than any earlier film, how an entire country bought into Hitler's genocidal madness.

    Sobering and important.

    The less you know going in, the more you'll enjoy it. Suffice it to say that it's a hugely entertaining thriller disguised as a chick flick.
  13. Gut-Bustingly funny moves are pretty rare, so hustle over to Kung Fu Hustle, actor-director Ste phen Chow's exhilaratingly hilarious and affectionate send-up of Hong Kong action flicks.
    • 63 Metascore

    Akhavan plays each change brilliantly in a film that is so tightly controlled that the mere glimpse of a new beard or a prayer mat being unrolled becomes a moment of horror.
    • 53 Metascore

    Solondz beats on abortion defenders, stomps on the pro-life crowd and finishes up by telling us there is no free will. If you want some easy laughs tonight you'd be better off curling up with some Kierkegaard.
  14. Not for the squeamish, but it is a beautifully crafted and thoughtful film that genuinely provokes.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A long, messy cinematic novel full of hate, love, murder, ghosts, madness, poetry and Catherine Deneuve.
  15. It could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.
  16. Or
    Like mother, like daughter best sums up Or (My Treasure), a raw drama.

    If the director had more gospel and less blues in him, it might have brought him closer to really understanding these talents. Still, I can't wait for "Rize 2: Electric Boogaloo."
  17. A remarkable, eye-popping nature documentary.
  18. If you enjoy intelligent, challenging filmmaking, Tropical Malady is for you.
  19. Fast-moving, psychologically savvy.
  20. Like Roald Dahl's book, Tim Burton's splendidly imaginative and visually stunning - and often very dark and creepy - new version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is squarely aimed more at children than their parents.

    The flick brings two hours of great big sloppy buck-wild laughs by morphing into a cross between "Meet the Parents" and "Some Like It Hot."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A yellow dog of a movie that delights in offending the offendable. It's also a whitesploitation classic, from its menacing sideburns to its demented laughter.
  21. An achingly beautiful look at the most tragic victims of the longtime war in Chechnya: children.
  22. You'll either be screaming with laughter - or be incredibly offended.
