  1. There is too much funny here for a movie (even though it continues into the closing credits). Step Brothers should be a TV show.
  2. Easily one of the year's best movies.
  3. A modest and charming comedy from Israel.
  4. The final result, shaped by the brilliantly nimble, pitch-perfect direction of Spike Jonze, and blessed by superb acting, is an extraordinarily clever comedy that falters only in the last 20 minutes.
  5. '71
    It’s a rare film that locates viciousness and kindness on both sides of Northern Ireland’s Troubles.
  6. The skillfully acted and directed The Lives of Others is a timely warning about governments that seek to repress dissent.
  7. You're either going to love this film and run out to see everything Majewski has directed, or you're going to be bored silly. I'm hoping for the former.
  8. For all of its laughs and a star-making performance by Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky represents a serious philosophical inquiry by Leigh, who has illustrated a consistently pessimistic view of humankind in his semi-improvised movies.
  9. This movie depicts an unlikely intersection of sports and leadership in ways that manage to be inspiring and insightful without ever becoming schmaltzy or preachy.
  10. File this one in the same category of edgy Long Island comedies as the equally smart 2009 Alec Baldwin film "Lymelife."
  11. Vulgar and lewd and raunchy like you wouldn't believe, and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end.

  12. The story is ornate but easy to follow. It's the dreamy look and sound of Tabu - half old, half modern - that give the film its haunting strangeness.
  13. The Yellow Handkerchief tells a timeless fable, and tells it extremely well.
  14. The movie all but proclaims U2 the world's best rock band. Somewhere, Mick Jagger's jaws are grinding.
  15. Woody Allen's most purely entertaining film in years.
  16. The marvelous Burtonic gothic/nightmare production design -- scenery, weaponry, costumes, etc. constantly pleases the eye without ever distracting you from the plot.
  17. Doesn't have the crossover appeal of the Mexican sexcapade "Y Tu Mama Tambien," but it does herald the arrival of an audacious young filmmaker. We can't wait to see what he does next.
  18. A visually stunning film.
  19. There is something both mischievous and moving about a world-famous director who, closing on his 10th decade, designs a movie that celebrates his actors: their varying ages, their versatility, their heart.
  20. The friction between a couple of still-struggling artists sounds rather depressing, but in fact the film is often funny; it shows that love is present in even the couple’s harshest exchanges.
  21. The film is dark, both literally and figuratively. Only at the very end do we get a glimpse of the sun.
  22. A classic social drama in the proud tradition of "Norma Rae," "Silkwood" and "Erin Brockovich."
  23. Fast-moving, psychologically savvy.
  24. Actors tell us that dying is easy, comedy is hard. But comedies about dying are hardest of all.
  25. It's also a terrific, career-capping role for Eastwood, who claims he's now retired as an actor. He shows off his comic chops more fully than in any film since "Bronco Billy" more than a quarter-century ago.
  26. If Like Someone in Love frustrates, it also has ineffable grace in the framing of Kiarostami’s long, languid shots, the changes he captures in the light, and the way the actors’ smallest movements become fascinating. This enigmatic study of identities built on social deceit offers more than easy answers ever could.
  27. Brutality and tenderness are a potent mix in War Witch.
  28. Spanish master filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar offers up a grisly Halloween trick-and-treat in his first full-out horror movie, an eye-popping and genuinely shocking gender-bending twist on Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo.''
  29. Literate and engrossing, with excellent performances.
  30. In his fourth outing with the director, cinematographer Andreas Sinanos produces stunning scene after stunning scene, almost as if each frame were a small painting.
