  1. Quite possibly the first truly great fact-based movie of the 21st century.
  2. It's a highly erotic work that at no point seems staged. Credit brilliant use of fog, mirrors, silhouettes, slow motion and special effects worthy of a music video.
  3. An all-time classic that seems even better after two decades.
  4. There’s no shortage of brains, brawn, eye candy, wit and even some poetry in this epic battle between massive lizard-like monsters and 25-story-high robots operated by humans.
  5. What might seem like showing off in another movie is dazzling storytelling here, packing in an hour's worth of human misery.
  6. Bursting with energy and originality even after 36 years, A Hard Day's Night is easily the best show in town.

  7. It's hard to remember a film that mixes disparate, delicate ingredients with the subtlety and virtuosity of Sofia Coppola's brilliant The Virgin Suicides.
  8. It is filmmaking as it should be but usually isn't.
  9. This is perhaps the most effective 3-D movie I have ever seen, with a sophisticated, involving story that will appeal to many adults. The only reservation I have is with the PG rating, which seems too lenient for a story that may give very young children - particularly if they are sensitive - nightmares.
  10. So gorgeously animated and so thoroughly entertaining for all ages that only an ogre would complain it's not quite as fresh as the original.
  11. A triumph of low-budget filmmaking.

  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.
  13. Gorgeous set pieces thrill the senses, but there is philosophical inquiry as well. "Alien" was, after all, just "Jaws" in space, but Prometheus ponders where evil comes from and how it conquers its makers.
  14. You might be reminded of Jean-Jacques Beineix's 1981 thriller "Diva," which also involves crooked cops and Metro chases. But you need never have seen "Diva" to be captivated by the exhilarating Point Blank.
  15. Julie Christie is simply astounding as a woman slipping into the ravages of Alzheimer's in Sarah Polley's deeply affecting and artfully crafted Away From Her.
  16. A powerful fable about love and addiction that manages to be darkly humorous when it isn't graphic or harrowing in the extreme.
  17. East Is East is "The Full Monty" of 2000, a fresh, funny and poignant film filled with sparkling performances.

  18. This remarkable new documentary from Raymond De Felitta ("City Island") fruitfully revisits the aftermath of a TV doc that his father, Frank, produced for NBC in 1965.
  19. Williams, who was elected president of ASCAP in 2009, speaks frankly and eloquently about his problems dealing with fame, and his recovery. And more important, he earns our thanks by resolutely refusing to let Kessler turn this into a clichéd documentary.
  20. In the Loop is certainly the smartest and funniest movie inspired by the Iraq war.
  21. Adults will be more than passably entertained by this short, patriotic feature, and kids will be entranced.
  22. Adding goofy uncertainty to shoulders as wide as the East River makes for a disarming hero in one of the spiffiest WWII action yarns ever to march out of Hollywood.

    The entire film is a feast for the eyes that brings to mind the work of Hong Kong ace Wong Kar-Wai.
  23. Nutty Danish provocateur Lars von Trier -- long one of the most annoying filmmakers on the planet -- turns out one of the year's most emotionally resonant art movies.
  24. The filmmaker doesn't speculate about why these men are talking, but he leaves you with an excellent guess.
  25. It's strange enough to be raised by your aunt. For young John Lennon, things get stranger still when he finds himself dating his mother.
  26. Philippe Béziat’s documentary focuses on how Sivadier and his Violetta, the French soprano Natalie Dessay, fuse acting with the music. It’s an incredible view of artists at work.
  27. Gripping, smart and moving, without falling prey to sentimentality, it shows what can be achieved when mainstream filmmakers like Howard and Goldsman are genuinely inspired and determined to be honest.
  28. In place of elaborate sets, clever filmmaking gives the impression of a central London emptied of people and cars, to eerie effect - and this opening reel is nothing short of magnificent.
  29. Cars leaves the animated competition in the dust, even if it is a tad slower and more predictable than Pixar at full throttle.
