  1. Dropping by on the same people every seven years like an old friend - or an unwelcome relative - Apted has constructed a peerless, suspenseful work that develops character to a depth that would make Tolstoy jealous. If you have any interest in documentaries, watch the DVD of the first film, "7 Up" (49 Up hits DVD Nov. 14). You won't be able to stop.
  2. Miyazaki offers a vivid, at times fantastical view of Japan between the wars, wracked by the Great Depression, a fearsome earthquake that leveled Tokyo in 1923, a tuberculosis epidemic and the rise of fascism.
  3. Like the fictional Clarice Starling in "The Silence of the Lambs,'' Maya is a consummate professional who brilliantly performs her job in an often hostile work environment.
  4. Deep, disturbing and funny.
  5. Smiling more than in all of his movies since "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" combined, Penn goes way deep and soulful in a highly ingratiating performance that's the one to beat for the Best Actor Oscar.
  6. Short and sweet, small and smart, Tadpole is the oasis in the desert of dopey summer blockbusters - an uproarious, sophisticated coming-of-age comedy so flawlessly written, acted and directed it seems practically miraculous.
  7. Whip-smart, sexy and delightfully twisty romantic thriller.
  8. A blue-chip Oscar contender that's also a rousing popcorn movie, Ben Affleck's Argo offers plenty of nail-biting thrills as well as funnier scenes than you'd ever imagine possible in the grim context of the Iran hostage crisis.
  9. While Tarr's newest epic, Werckmeister Harmonies, isn't intended for the shopping-mall crowd, it is more viewer-friendly and will please adventurous moviegoers.
  10. Expertly mixing tears and laughs with the sort of alchemy not seen since "Terms of Endearment," this superbly written, directed, acted, and yes, Oscar-friendly movie perfectly captures the blackly comic insanity that can overtake a family forced to confront an impending death.
  11. Hollywood's Woman of the Year is a pregnant 16-year-old, the incredibly hip, smart-mouthed and totally endearing heroine of the wise and witty Juno.
  12. What a sweet collision is Rescue Dawn: the American psycho meets the German kook.
  13. It's time to stop calling Azazel Jacobs a "promising" filmmaker. With Momma's Man, Jacobs achieves the promise.
  14. Less a conventional biography than a performance film - one that stuns and delights.
  15. An unqualified triumph, the year's best movie so far.

  16. It takes a world-class storyteller and a great yarn to rivet your attention for nearly three hours. This very classy, old-school movie - employing cutting-edge technology that will make your eyes pop - did it for me.
  17. This eye-popping, inspired and often-demented (in a good way) cross between "The Red Shoes" and "All About Eve" channels horror maestros David Cronenberg, Brian De Palma and Dario Argento.
  18. Twice I have left a Calvary screening feeling dazed and moved.
  19. Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves is the purest, boldest re-imagining of silent cinema yet.
  20. Taken together, Eastwood's masterworks - two of the best films of 2006 - may be Hollywood's last word on World War II.
  21. The very sex-positive The Sessions treats intimacy with an explicitness and honesty that's very rare in movies. It may be the first film that doesn't turn premature ejaculation into a punch line.
  22. The movie equivalent of a 12-course feast crammed with unforgettable images and mind-boggling stunts.
  23. Whether Tiny Furniture is a mumblecore movie is an open question. It has many of the tell-tale signs of that ill-defined genre; although improvised dialogue, a mumblecore staple, is minimal.
  24. A really classic adventure yarn with one of Hollywood's great actors hitting one out of the ballpark. If you're seeing only one movie this season, this is the obvious choice.

  25. Many of the images — and Salgado’s accounts of taking them — are as soul-shattering as they are breathtaking.
  26. Sheer delight. An ensemble comedy-drama that recalls Robert Altman's best work.
  27. Who's going to love it? Anyone with a sense of humor: Team America: World Police is hands-down the funniest movie of the year.
  28. Petzold raises questions of honor and builds the romance with an absolutely rigorous lack of sentiment, moving Barbara to a sweeping finish as emotionally satisfying as any this year.
  29. This is one perfectly terrifying movie, an instant classic.
  30. Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.
