  1. Altman and Rapp skirt the fine line between satire and caricature, stopping just short of ridiculing the women who pack Dr. T's office.
  2. The marvelous Burtonic gothic/nightmare production design -- scenery, weaponry, costumes, etc. constantly pleases the eye without ever distracting you from the plot.
  3. The kind of stand-up-and-cheer movie Hollywood is supposed to have forgotten how to make.
  4. Uses the compelling true story of the triumph of the Enigma code-breakers as background for an invented but believable story of love, betrayal and heroism.
  5. Packs a dramatic wallop that makes it one of the year's best movies.
  6. Refreshing and surprising, the way independent movies are supposed to be.
  7. Cannily weaving cross-cultural comedy with we-can-do-it humor in the spirit of "The Full Monty," the film builds to a rousing climax.
  8. Revels in the sensual pleasure of music while capturing brilliantly the tension that grips any theater company before the curtain goes up.
  9. Rarely since the tale of the Corleones has a movie presented such a compelling, sympathetic portrait of a criminal lowlife.
  10. An ideal antidote to the big-budget bores that studios put out in late summer, The Tao of Steve is a charming, funny and refreshingly smart Gen-X romantic comedy in the tradition of "When Harry Met Sally" - with the bonus of an engagingly laid-back Southwestern flavor.
  11. A real high in a season filled with unfunny comedies.
  12. More than lives up to its clever positioning as the first movie of the new millennium.
  13. The ideal date movie for the Passover-Easter season and beyond, guaranteed to keep audiences rolling in the pews.
  14. An expertly crafted, deeply moving film.
  15. The movie that deserved to win the Oscar for foreign-language film, and one of the best movies ever made about life behind the Iron Curtain.
  16. Plot and dialogue take a back seat to a series of inventive sight gags that unspool with effortless charm. An ensemble cast of talented amateurs is in top form.
  17. The most devastating spoof of reality TV since Albert Brooks' 1978 "Real Life."
  18. So joyous it can actually shake viewers out of a bad mood.
  19. A remarkable accomplishment. It takes one of the century's vast tragedies...and makes it heart-rendingly real and intimate.
  20. Such astounding computer-generated effects you'll suspend disbelief and root for the hero, a 3-inch talking mouse.
  21. A triumph of low-budget filmmaking.
  22. A crowd-pleasing ensemble piece, whose story goes exactly where you want it to.
  23. Perfectly captures the cultural and emotional wasteland that is suburban Jersey.
  24. 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.
  25. There have been many documentaries about the Holocaust in recent years, but this one really stands out.
  26. Easily one of the year's best movies.
  27. This bizarre, original and brilliantly crafted documentary about the Sex Pistols is funny and at times moving -- despite all the ugliness and stupidity it depicts.
  28. A delightful, fresh dark comedy.
  29. Morris' most gripping film since "The Thin Blue Line," is the year's scariest movie.
  30. Makhmalbaf finds room for moments of humor and humanity.
