  1. The Wrestler offers something to pretty much everyone in the audience. Much like "The Sopranos," it creates a world that might make you feel utterly at home or exhilarated by strange horrors. Maybe both.
  2. Lymelife, set amid marital decay and teen frustration, isn't quite the "American Beauty" of the 516 area code, but it'll do.
  3. A deeply felt evocation of a place and a people by writer-director Matt Porterfield, who set this largely improvised film in his own lower-class Baltimore neighborhood.
  4. A real high in a season filled with unfunny comedies.
  5. One of the year's most engaging films.
  6. Mostly it's worth seeing Alien, which established Scott as an A-list director, in a theater because his brilliant and often expansive visuals have always worked better on a big screen than on video.
  7. You know a performance has to be special when a Palestinian wins Israel's version of the Best Actress Oscar. But why should politics detract from a stunning performance?
  8. An exquisitely crafted Civil War epic that combines the epic romantic sweep of "Gone With the Wind" with a more intimate voice that speaks eloquently to the war-weary nation of today.
  9. Ray
    Contains large helpings of Hollywood schmaltz, stereotype and clich‚, but it's also pretty impossible to resist.
  10. Rarely since the tale of the Corleones has a movie presented such a compelling, sympathetic portrait of a criminal lowlife.

  11. Combining a thoughtful script with splendid acting -- especially by Sansa -- Bellocchio has fashioned a tense thriller that is both understated and powerful.
  12. One funk-tastic musical biopic.
  13. The faint of heart might want to leave early. If you elect to stay, remember: You were warned.
  14. Werner Herzog looks at the death penalty in Into the Abyss, and as is almost always the case, to look through his eyes is to marvel.
  15. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and the Marquis de Sade (interesting combination, no?).
  16. Drawing inspiration from anime and vintage Looney Toons, this beautifully drafted, offbeat charmer is hip, funny - and a bona fide heart tugger for the whole family.
  17. The scariest, creepiest and most elegantly filmed horror movie I've seen in years - it positively drives a stake through the competition.
  18. You can tell this is a smart take on Hamlet from the first wordless opening shots.
  19. So smooth and satisfying it makes the similar "Ocean's Eleven" look like a game of three-card monte.
  20. The second half offers shot after shot of the people who sat opposite Abramovi - an unexpectedly enthralling record of reactions that range from stark agony to rather phony amusement.
  21. O
    Exceptionally intelligent and powerful contemporary adaptation.
  22. More than a ripped-from-the- headlines drug drama, Maria Full of Grace is like a horror movie made real.
  23. Constantly battling, Hoskins and Dench have terrific chemistry together.
  24. Don't let the quiet, indie stylings of The Place Beyond the Pines fool you. This is a big movie with a lot on its mind. Slowly, it unfolds into a kind of epic.
  25. Tremendously affecting on several levels, In the Bedroom is must-see viewing for anyone who complains Hollywood doesn't make movies for grownups.
  26. 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.
  27. Coppola works in weird ways, but the real Versailles was so much weirder.

    Polarized world views from the mouths of babes -- unfortunately does little to mitigate this depressing image, but much to humanize both sides.
  28. The most effective moments in Taymor's gorgeous, surprisingly romantic Frida are those that evoke the visual world from which Kahlo's work was formed or the paintings themselves, often using clever animation and other special effects.
  29. There is too much funny here for a movie (even though it continues into the closing credits). Step Brothers should be a TV show.
