  1. Delightfully unpredictable, hilarious comedy with wonderful performances that tug at your heart in ways that utterly transcend gender labels.
  2. It's like watching Alfred Hitchcock try to solve a Rubik's cube in a roadside diner.
  3. Rapturously elegant and deeply sexy in a deliciously restrained way. One of the most romantic movies I have ever seen, right up there with "Brief Encounter"and "Casablanca."
  4. Those with the stomach to sit through Decline will be rewarded with a lively, masterful documentary.
  5. While Tarr's newest epic, Werckmeister Harmonies, isn't intended for the shopping-mall crowd, it is more viewer-friendly and will please adventurous moviegoers.
  6. Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.
  7. This is one perfectly terrifying movie, an instant classic.
  8. Comes as close to perfect as any movie I've seen lately.
  9. A really classic adventure yarn with one of Hollywood's great actors hitting one out of the ballpark. If you're seeing only one movie this season, this is the obvious choice.

    Breakneck, raucous and thoroughly exhilarating.
  10. The latest episode of this ongoing masterpiece of reality TV -- which every seven years revisits a group of English people first interviewed as 7-year-olds in 1964 -- is every bit as enthralling as the earlier ones.
  11. Less a conventional biography than a performance film - one that stuns and delights.
  12. 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.
  13. You'll laugh, you'll cry -- the year's best movie.
  14. Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.
  15. The result is a magnificent feast for the eyes and brain.
  16. Glossy, big-budget thriller that qualifies as the season's biggest and most rewarding surprise.
  17. Bursting with energy and originality even after 36 years, A Hard Day's Night is easily the best show in town.
  18. An absorbing, deeply affecting, well-acted --and remarkably evenhanded -- antiwar statement. It's also incredibly suspenseful and very blackly funny.
  19. The breathtaking visual and aural restoration by Coppola and Murch makes the film's original glories even more intense than you remember them.
  20. An all-time classic that seems even better after two decades.
  21. 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.
  22. An unqualified triumph, the year's best movie so far.
  23. An extraordinary experience: an original and brilliant combination of comedy, action and sophisticated political comment -- the best American movie of the year thus far.

    If she (Paltrow) were the only good thing about Shakespeare in Love, it still would have been worth seeing; that she is the crown jewel in a glittering tiara of a film studded with writing and acting gems testifies to the deep pleasures to be found in this remarkable movie.
  24. Lee's incendiary and brilliant new film.
  25. The year's best foreign-language movie an absolute must-see.
  26. It ranks among Robert Altman's best work ever, and that its many satisfactions derive in large part from a superbly written screenplay by Julian Fellowes that has no equal this year.
  27. A heart-pounding experience that makes you think and contains a gallery of characters that will haunt your nightmares for years to come.
  28. Hands-down the best movie of the year.
