  1. Masterful, atypically political - and flawlessly acted.
  2. The year's best foreign-language movie an absolute must-see.
    • New York Post
  3. A thrilling and propulsive drama.
  4. Old-school filmmaking at its best.
  5. Walk the Line superbly combines music and two of the year's most riveting performances to tell one of the screen's great love stories.
  6. Getting a small cohort of humanity dead right is an impressive artistic achievement, but Mike Leigh's beautifully modulated English drama Another Year advances even farther.
  7. As we face yet another summer of brooding superheroes, it's Magic Mike to the rescue! He's got the civilian alter ego and the acrobatic skills to rival Spidey or Batman.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A film of such cyclonic visual and emotional power, of such dazzling virtuosity and shattering humanity, that it is difficult to endure, yet alone describe. Savagely beautiful and savagely true, Saving Private Ryan is an excruciating masterpiece.

    A flat-out masterpiece, surely the best movie of the year; indeed, an all-time classic.
    • New York Post
  8. This Belgian drama is the real deal, an alternately wrenching and ecstatic viewing experience, adapted from a play by lead actor Johan Heldenbergh.
  9. Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.
  10. Summer hasn't even started, but you won't likely find a better catch this season than Finding Nemo, a dazzling, computer-animated fish tale with a funny, touching script and wonderful voice performances that make it an unqualified treat for all ages.
  11. The best reason to wade into this (let's be honest) challenging but hugely rewarding film is Quvenzhané Wallis.
  12. It falls to Hanks and his movie-star presence to anchor this ambitious enterprise, and he does some of his most impressive acting without saying a word.
  13. Visually imaginative, The Theory of Everything is an unusually compelling true-life story about an extraordinary couple triumphing over adversity. It’s my favorite movie so far this year.
  14. A heart-pounding experience that makes you think and contains a gallery of characters that will haunt your nightmares for years to come.
  15. Like all great movies, 127 Hours takes us on a memorable journey. Which is not easy when 90 percent of the movie takes place with a virtually immobile hero in a very cramped setting.
  16. The latest episode of this ongoing masterpiece of reality TV -- which every seven years revisits a group of English people first interviewed as 7-year-olds in 1964 -- is every bit as enthralling as the earlier ones.
    • New York Post
  17. Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.
  18. Delightful performances are delivered by all in this ingenious work of cinema that is worth seeing if only for its glorious views of the Himalayas.
  19. You won't have a more viscerally emotional experience at the movies this year.
  20. Such is literature’s power that the cast is more at ease portraying ancient Romans than speaking as versions of themselves.
  21. The first movie I've seen in a very long while that deserves to be called a masterpiece. It's such a stunning achievement in storytelling.
  22. Denzel Washington dazzles in his best screen performance to date as Frank Lucas.
  23. A thrilling, beautifully crafted, fact-based horse story that's not merely the summer's finest movie, but may well be the one to catch come Academy Awards time.
  24. No film I’ve seen so far this year has provided the sheer moviegoing pleasure of We Are the Best!
  25. A sumptuous masterpiece by one of the greatest moviemakers of all time.
  26. Audacious, thought-provoking and ruefully funny.
  27. A great movie, period. It's great because it's so real.
  28. A stunning drama from that remote former Soviet republic.
