  1. Subversively funny, it's a welcome alternative to the big-budget movies flooding into theaters at this time of year.
  2. Schrader's strongest movie since "Affliction," is another meditation on American masculinity powerfully told with great wit and style.
  3. An astonishing re-creation of the Londonderry massacre of January 1972.
  4. Thoughtful and entertaining documentary.

    Forget the hype, and the backlash. The Phantom Menace is captivating.
    • New York Post
  5. A technological landmark that couldn't look or sound better.
  6. An unforgettable and complex portrait of a nuclear family in meltdown.
  7. Vulgar and lewd and raunchy like you wouldn't believe, and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end.
    • New York Post
  8. An exhilarating, sweeping epic that begs to be seen on the largest possible screen.

  9. Williams triumphs by exceeding both in sheer actor's craft - and the depths he plumbs in his character's tortured soul.
  10. Atriumph on almost every level. It is breathtakingly stylish, wonderfully acted and its three interrelated tales of the "war" on drugs are brilliantly structured to form a cohesive, powerful whole.
  11. Isn't quite as accessible or as deeply moving as his masterpiece, "All About My Mother." It's a tad too self-consciously a work of art for that. But it's still a must-see for anyone who's halfway serious about film.
  12. Isn't just scary, charming and delightfully unpredictable - it's also smarter and subtler than any new movie out there.
  13. A powerful fable about love and addiction that manages to be darkly humorous when it isn't graphic or harrowing in the extreme.
  14. A remarkable accomplishment, an absorbing documentary about the joy of reading that's also a positively gripping literary mystery.
  15. 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.
  16. A visually stunning film.
  17. Brilliantly idiosyncratic.
  18. Lilya is portrayed by Oksana Akinshina, who gives a dynamic, heartbreaking performance... She was wonderful in ["Brothers"], but is even more astonishing in Lilya 4-Ever.
  19. Quirkily likable comedy-drama about a family trying to coping with loss, contains three of the best performances you're likely to see in an American movie this year.
    • 64 Metascore

    (Osment) delivers what may be the greatest performance ever by a child actor.
  20. An affectionate, often clever and unflaggingly funny satire.
    • New York Post
  21. Hilarious sweet and sour David Mamet comedy.
  22. Norton, returning to cracking form, doesn't try to make the selfish and smug Monty sympathetic -- but he lights up the screen, especially in two fantasy sequences.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. An enthralling 3-D IMAX documentary.
  26. 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.
  27. As hip, funny and truthful a sleeper as has ever flown under Tinseltown's radar.
  28. This demanding puzzle is not for the "Chocolat" crowd, but those who stay with it will experience perhaps the most dazzling film released so far this year - even though a second viewing is virtually mandatory.
